Healthier Shrimp Pad Thai

I will be the first to admit that from the time when I make my dishes and the time when I actually get them up on the website is not as fast I would like.  Usually I have a back log of about 4 to 5 recipes at any given moment where the meals or […]

Mexican Lasagna

I LOOOOOOOOVEd this dish.  When you go to cut into it, it doesn’t stay together all pretty like a traditional lasagna, but it tastes so good that you don’t really care and neither does anyone else.   It’s like your friend at the party who’s always a hot mess, but she’s so charismatic that no […]

“Spa” Chicken with Apricot-Orange Chipotle Sauce

I found this recipe for “Spa Chicken” in my 2011 America’s Test Kitchen Light & Healthy Cookbook.  The title of the recipe has a perfectly logical explanation – If you go on vacation to a fancy spa resort, often you will be served a lot of boneless, skinless chicken dishes.  There are a variety of […]

Chicken Chilaquiles Casserole

The quest for wellness in 2013 continues…. So far I’ve followed through of my goals for the new year.  I quit the over priced gym, purchased a treadmill for my home, and even started doing P90X. …..and even still  doing P90X after 2 weeks.  Sometimes I want to slap Tony Horton in the face, especially on […]

Pork Tacos with Mango Salsa

I’ll be the first to admit that the blog posts have been slim pickins’ these days.  When you’re cooking for one (and yes, we are cooking for one these days for anyone who has been paying close attention and reading between the lines), the motivation to cook is slightly diminished…. The meals lately have been […]

Spicy Shredded Pork Tostadas

I think that I’ve previously mentioned that my husband and I rarely frequent Mexican restaurants.  I guess between all types of different restaurants in the world, it’s not our “go-to.”  That being said, I DO like some Mexican food and I’ve already posted a number of Mexican inspired recipes on this blog from Fish Tacos, […]

Chicken Enchiladas

When it comes to Mexican food, I really have a love/hate relationship.  As long as I can avoid a limited number of key ingredients, I’m all for it. Mexican Ingredient Likes:  avocados, jalapenos, cheese, chicken, pork, cilantro, scallions, peppers, spices Mexican Ingredient Dislikes: any kind of beans (refried beans in particular look disgusting…), and over […]

Chicken Quesadilla Pie

Mmm…Delicious Chickeny, Cheesy, Spicy, Goodness…. This dish reminds me a little bit of chicken pot pie, in that there is an ooey gooey, creamy chicken filling.  That’s where the similarities end though… Instead of a pie crust, we’ve got a tortilla base layer with a layer of melty cheese on top.  Instead of hearty, soul-warming […]

Chipotle Chicken Meatballs

0 Every since I made Shrimp with Chipotle Sauce back in August, I’ve had a can of Chipotles in my fridge that I’ve slowly been trying to chip away at.  One or two chipotles goes a LOOOONG way, so you always end up with extras after you open a can.  As a result, I’m always […]

Shrimp with Chipotle Sauce

OK, last shrimp recipe for a while, I promise! But honestly, this is one of my FAVORITE recipes.  Its got seriously bold flavors with a helluva kick.  Its got heat, but not the kind of heat that will set your mouth on fire…. more like the kind of spiciness that will have you sweating with […]
