Here we go again! Lifestyle change! I’m excited!

How many times have you had a lifestyle change? Should the question be, how many diets have you been on? Like I said in a previous post, I don’t believe in the word “diet”. For me, it’s about living a healthier lifestyle. With a new position at work, and a new daily schedule, I can…

One Massive Red Cabbage – Two Delicious Condiments

I was first introduced to picked red cabbage with a dear friend I worked with downtown. We would go to the food trucks during lunch. We were hooked when Clover came to town. It was their chickpea fritter sandwich for sure that hooked me on pickled red cabbage. I was traveling last weekend – wanted…

Pulled Pork

I didn’t start making pulled pork until about two years ago. My kids asked me if I could make it. I wasn’t sure about it at first because I hadn’t used my crockpot in years. I first found a recipe with a barbecue base, and then recently started making one closer to the flavor of…

Pepper Steak

This recipe reminds me of my mom. She used to make pepper steak with white rice and the sauce would just soak into the rice and make it nice and flavorful. After posting this from my facebook live video, I challenged my 81 year old mom to post her recipe in my comments. Well, we’ll…

Broccoli Rabe with Italian Sausage

My sister-in-law got me hooked on broccoli rabe. She would make broccoli rabe with garlic and oil at Thanksgiving. This could be a meal in itself, cooked with Italian sausage and chicken stock. She would make it so much that I never thought to even ask her for the recipe. When I finally did ask…

Mediterranean inspired Chicken

This dish is one of my favorites. I made it with bone in chicken thighs, however it can also be made with chicken tenders, and/or pounded chicken breasts. After unpacking the meat, I washed then patted the chicken dry with a paper towels until it was dry. I season with a garlic and herb seasoning,…

Corn Beef and Hash

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!! Decided to cook corn beef and hash instead of a boiled dinner. We like our eggs cooked – can’t eat runny eggs in our house – more for health reasons than anything. I could have cooked them like the ones you see in the magazines, but decided to go for the…

Asian Delights

My daughter brought home some shiitake mushrooms. This got me thinking…. I was originally going to make a turkey wrap, but then my mind switch over to Asian fair – I bought and made spring rolls a few weeks ago when I had a rotisserie chicken. I made soup again the night before and reserved…
