As most of you know, I’ve been trying to take control of my health and eat better. Which I’ll admit, hasn’t been easy. But I’m learning as I go and this week I learned that I really LOVE quinoa! It’s got a great texture and can be flavored in so many different ways. Today I wanted to share with you my first recipe I have made with quinoa, which resulted in this amazingly easy One Pan Mexican Quinoa Recipe! This recipe has a great flavor, a spicy kick, and the best part is that it’s pretty good for you! Let’s check out how to make it shall we?Continue reading
Get ready to be blown away or at least have your socks knocked off. I honestly don’t know how or when the idea popped into my head but I thought about making waffles using french fries and thought it sounded like a fun way to cook fries. Then I thought if waffles made with french fires sounds good, what about waffles made with sweet potato fries. I LOVE sweet potatoes and always order sweet potato fries instead of regular fries when I have the option. So if the idea of making waffles with sweet potatoes fries has not knocked your socks off yet trust me they will go flying when you find out how easy it is and how great they taste.
I guess I should share my recipe that my husband insists that I should send into the food network. He says watching all those shows have really improved my technique. I think he just wants me to cook a real meal every night. I do try something new every week that is a start right?
Here is what I did this week. I stole the Baked Salmon Recipe off the Bag of Frozen Salmon Fillets from Kroger and I made it my own. I look for inspiration everywhere.
Onion rings on the grill, say what? That’s right, you can cook fried onion rings on the grill. They are crispy and crunchy and it is so easy you will never want cook them in a deep fryer or oven again. When the summer heat hits in the south, no one wants to cook in the oven. I also no longer own a deep fryer since I decided to live a healthier lifestyle. So I was trying to decide what to have as a side with our mahi-mahi burgers and my son asked for onion rings. I thought well why not try them on the grill. And much to my delight it worked.
I love Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches but I don’t love all the carbs that come with the bread. I had seen recipes similar to the one I have created and I thought I would give it a try only instead of baking my Philly Cheesesteak stuffed green peppers in the oven I decided to cook them on the grill.
green peppers (1 for each person)
thin sliced beef
mozzarella cheese, shredded
First wash and then slice all of your green peppers in half. Remove the seeds and white fleshy parts.
In a skillet, cook the sliced beef and onions until brown. Scoop the meat and onions into the green peppers and top with shredded mozzarella cheese.
Then cook the peppers on a grill tray in the grill until the cheese is melted. The sides and bottoms may brown some. When the cheese is melted your peppers are ready to eat.
This is such an easy dinner to throw together. If you kids are picky, then you can just let them have the meat and cheese without the green pepper. That is how we do it. If your kids like raw peppers but not cooked ones you could always just slice a pepper and serve it with the meat and cheese. I like dinners that I can tweak just a little bit to make the kids happy.

Some nights I just want to throw dinner together quickly, easily, and efficiently. Those nights are usually on Sundays, or my family’s “day off”. I’m the one that does the cooking and cleaning so on Sundays I want to relax with everyone else so I pick meals that are fast and easy, but I still want something tasty! That is exactly what my Chili Cheese Dog Casserole Recipe is. Its one of my family’s favorite meals. We don’t eat it much because it isn’t exactly great for you, but we have to indulge a little everyone once in awhile right? 😉Continue reading
