My Word for 2018: Renew

Oh, 2017… you were a tough one.  You challenged me.  You chewed me up and spit me out in many ways.  Needless to say, I was VERY happy to flip the calendar and get this new year started.

Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Spinach and Chicken Enchiladas

I love enchiladas.  While they’re usually loaded with cheese, I’ve given up on the cheesy, oozy version years ago, making way for veggie-licious versions. When I’m cooking, I tend to reach for whatever veggies I have on hand.  I tend to buy the same veggies weekly – – spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions. Show More Summary

Garlic-Oregano Carrot Rice

A few weeks ago, I posted this picture to instagram of a Jenny Craig meal loaded up with carrot rice, and I got all the questions!

Black Pepper Popovers

A few weeks ago, I made fired up my crockpot with my favorite beef stew recipe.  My sister-in-law has always told me that she pairs the stew with popovers. I had my friend Melanie over to enjoy the stew, and thought I’d take a stab at making my very first popovers for her visit.  Thanks...

Magical Sweet Potato & Sausage Quinoa Bake

I decided to add the word magical to this recipe title because I truly believe that it is. One of my employees recommended this recipe to me this week and while I usually trust her recommendations, the idea of kale, sweet potato, and quinoa just seemed a little too whole foodsy for me.

Pickled Grape Tomatoes

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.
