Friday Favorite – Broiled Grapefruit

Each Friday I'll be sharing a new favorite of mine from the past week....it could be a seasonal ingredient that I'm excited to try, a new recipe, or a handy kitchen gadget to help save time. The possibilities are endless, but I think this is a great way to share just a quick new "favorite" of mine from the week with all of you. This week I've been on a grapefruit kick. Fresh grapefruit, grapefruit juice, even grapefruit scented candles...I love it all!  I know everyone isn't a grapefr... Continue Reading

Salmon is a Slam Dunk

In my opinion, salmon is such a great fish choice for myself and my family. It's very versatile and can be prepared many different ways and it tastes great grilled, broiled, seared or baked (which are all healthy cooking methods). A bonus is the fact that salmon is pink, which my 2 year old daughter thinks is "awesome".     Not only is it easy to prepare and easy to cook, it has a lot of nutrition benefts... High in Protein On average, a 4oz serving of ... Continue Reading

1 Dish Wonder!

I absolutely HATE doing the dishes! I'm sure no one really "loves" washing pots and pans, but I really despise it.

I especially hate washing pots and pans that have dried food stuck on them.   That's why this recipe is perfect! I found this recipe on Pinterest (seriously, how did we find new ... Continue Reading

Elevating Eggs to Fancy Status

My husband travels a lot for work, so once I get the kids to bed at night (not an easy task at all!!), I definitely do not feel like cooking a big dinner for myself. I often grab some eggs to make an easy and quick dinner that is filling and nutritious. Let's face it, some nights I'm satisfied with scrambling up a few eggs and eating them right out of the pan (no shame...usually standing right over the stove with a glass of wine in hand!). But other nights I want to actually feel like ... Continue Reading

    5 Ways to Beat Egg Boredom

    I am the type of person that looks forward to meals and cannot eat the same thing over and over again without getting insanely bored. My husband on the other hand can eat plain old scrambled eggs for breakfast everyday for the rest of his life and never get bored, but let's face it, he is strange. I'm sharing a few of my favorite egg based recipes/ideas to jazz up your morning routine to beat egg boredom. They are easy and quick...requirements for busy mornings when you have to locate ...

    Boosting Your Breakfast with Eggs

      I could write pages and pages about the egg-cellent benefits of eggs (get it?!?) but instead I thought I'd break (or should I say crack....like an egg??) it up and start with a summary of the benfits, share some egg recipes that I love, and some tips to including more eggs in your meals. I'm sure we've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While I think all meals are important, it is true that eating a good breakfast is especially important. It sets ...
