Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Big Bowl Ramen

I’ve been home for less than 24 hours from my October vacation adventures, and I’m eager to get back into my routine.  With that, I spent my day filling my fridge with beautiful veggies for the week.  I’m back out on the road, but for...Show More Summary

Pickled Grape Tomatoes

While we were talking about fall coming excitedly on Monday, I have to admit that I’m going to desperately miss farmer’s markets and all the fresh tomatoes that come with them. I’ve been trying to hang onto all these great produce finds by pickling them. Show More Summary

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Taco Soup

I’m guessing that there are quite a few of you out there that are just bursting with excitement for September, and mostly for all things FALL. While I don’t enjoy the pumpkin spice latte craze, I do love the fact that fall brings warm...Show More Summary

Sweet Corn Gazpacho

Sometimes I have a ton of luck picking out a watermelon, and other times I pick one that is WAY overripe.  Yesterday, I bought the one no one wants to buy.  I had watermelon gazpacho on my mind (not surprisingly), but quickly side-stepped to make Sweet Corn Gazpacho as a replacement.

So long, August… you beautiful thing, you. I had a blast in August.  Loved it.  Can’t wait to see what comes in September as the temps cool off a little. CURRENT BOOK I don’t think I read a darn thing last month.  Nope, just headlines, social media posts, and the mail… In the month ahead,...

Spiralized Beets with Chive-Balsamic Dressing

Have I ever told you guys that I have two spiralizers?  Confession:  I do.  Additional confession:  I’m thinking about buying a third! An early adopter of spiralizing, I bought a Paderno 3-blade spiralizer way back when which I’ve used for years, and then I got a free one when I hosted a Pampered Chef party. Show More Summary

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Asian Chicken Mason Jar Salad

Now that I’m back on track with the program, I’ve got so many great ideas for how to pump up the menu.  While the Jenny Craig menu is delicious on its own, I think it’s so fun to add fresh and free ingredients to add flavor and a little something interesting to my menu. Show More Summary

That Time I Grilled Amazing Beef with Sprouts

It’s official.  As of this week, my HOA announced that we are a grill-free community.  It’s been in the works for a while, and now that it’s confirmed.. I’m a little sad that my grilling days will be limited moving forward. A treat in...Show More Summary

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Turkey Burger Chili

Now that the Simple Inspirations recipe contest is in full swing, it’s got me reminiscing of all of the recipes I’ve made in the past from my Jenny Craig meals. After a quick scroll through the early days of NTTC, I found that my early...Show More Summary

Whoa… slow down, summer.  I’m not AT ALL ready for Fall.  In the meantime, here’s my July wrap-up.  Sigh… Current Book Last night, I finished reading Wonder.  It’s one of those books that reads quickly, and having just about 50 pages left, I powered through to finish it up late in the night.

White Chocolate Blondie Skillet

I think you’ve realized by now that I don’t always say “No Thanks to Cake”, but when I say yes… it’s for very good reason!  I’ve grown to say yes only in those circumstances where it’s totally worth it. And, you guys, this recipe is completely worth it.  I made it for the first time... Read More The post White Chocolate Blondie Skillet appeared first on No Thanks to Cake.

Spiralized Pepperoni Pizza Bake

Summer cooking is my FAVORITE type of cooking.  All the veggies I love are in season, and the farmer’s markets are bursting with so much color. Here in Colorado, I stop by my local market on Sundays and they have a special where you can fill a bag of veggies for $10. TEN DOLLARS for...

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Hot Southwest Veggie Dip

I’ve mentioned it before, chips and dip are my kryptonite.  I recently went out to dinner with friends and although I said out loud I wasn’t going to have any buffalo kettle chips with blue cheese (because I don’t enjoy blue cheese), next thing you know… I was eating it. Show More Summary

Poshmark: My Latest Obsession

For as long as I’ve known my friend Jen, she’s been an organizing freak guru, and she’s totally taught me her ways over the years.  I mean, you can’t be friends for someone for 20+ years without their talents rubbing off on you, right?...Show More Summary

Baked Spiralized Jicama Fries

Jicama was my new veggie for 2017.  I’d never had it, and I quickly became a HUGE fan.  Maybe you remember my jicama taco shells??  Incredible alternative, and carb-free! I tried jicama for the first time when I was in Chicago with my...Show More Summary
