Skinny Mini Mexican Fritatas

February 16, 2017

Skinny mini. I have not heard that expression in a long time. As a kid, I remember being called that by my mother. I remember those days well. Drinking as many milk shakes as I could. Eating a huge bowl of pasta, a few meatballs and then asking what was for dessert. They are long gone […]

Garbanzo Beans and Beet Salad

February 10, 2017

It’s February so I thought it would be fitting to post a pink salad. February is also American Heart month and this salad is very heart healthy. And everyone needs a pink, healthy salad in their life, right? I am a huge fan of garbanzo beans. Or should I say chick peas? Up until I was in […]

Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

February 1, 2017

Let’s just pretend you did not hear the word cauliflower. Now let’s talk about food for the big game on Sunday. You’re probably thinking pizza, chili, hoagies, French fries, chicken wings and tacos. Should I mention more? These are things my husband and most men would want while watching the big game. And my husband is very lucky (and […]

Eggplant Parmesan

There is something about the weather getting warmer that makes me want to cook vegetarian meals. I could eat these eggplant Parmesan rounds once a week. It doesn’t even bother me that I have to turn my oven on. It’s much better than frying on the stove and also so much healthier. Make sure to […]

I grew up eating a lot of fish. My dad was from an island in Croatia so it was not uncommon for him to be grilling whole fish, eyeballs still intact and all. While my friends got to eat fish sticks at their houses, none of that was to be found at mine. Fish sticks […]

While Brussels sprouts seem more like a fall or winter vegetable, I love eating them all year round. I’ve noticed lately that they are on plenty of restaurant menus and are all the rage in food magazines. A few weeks ago we even ordered them off a happy hour menu. They were crispy and coated with […]

I am going to let you in on a little secret today. I started running again but I am not telling my thirteen year- old son. As soon as I am in very good shape, I will challenge him to a one mile run and hopefully will beat him. You might think that’s mean but this […]

Summer is finally here! This is the last week of school and I am looking forward to some lazy summer mornings. Summertime means pool time, trips for ice cream, staying up late and of course, plenty of fresh fruit such as strawberries! We missed the boat on strawberry picking this year but there are plenty of juicy […]

Gone are the days where I make boxed mac and cheese. I have nothing against making food from a box but I am glad my son realized there is a world outside of “the box “.  My daughter has been a homemade mac and cheese lover for a long time. As a matter of fact, […]
