My Recipe Box

 

Welcome to my recipe box!! I’m so excited to share all these wonderful meals with you all. Please click on the “Recipe Box” at the top of the page and let the drop down menu appear, this will always connect you to the categories you need to find the dishes you will love. I love cooking and it’s the best feeling in the world to complete a meal and get opinions afterwards, in my home they are usually good comments, as my husband says he’d eat anything I put in front of him (not sure if that’s exactly a compliment) but he’s usually honest with me, I always say if you don’t tell me if something is wrong with it then I’m not going to learn. I love the learning part, When I think back to when I started cooking last year I laugh because I used to measure EVERYTHING! I mean everything, but that’s how I learnt, now I’m experiencing just how much spices to put in certain meals by hand, how much cheese or garlic to add. The baking you’ll have to be patient with me on, I’m getting there, a lot of my foodie friends recipes has really helped me see the “Baker” side of myself. A few recipes have landed in the trash before they landed in my oven, but hey it’s how we learn. Also, I think visuals are important, I tend to buy the cookbook that has pictures, or read the recipes on line that have pictures that show the outcome so as I cook each thing on my site I will be posting pictures, feel free to swing by certain sections again if you like the visuals too! Please feel free to email me with your favorite recipe as well, whether it’s an old time family recipe or just a favorite in your household, send it over I’d be more than happy to try it and post it, we need to share, I love cooking new things! Don’t forget to comment on any recipes you end up trying! Thanks for visiting my recipe box!

 

Kale Pesto Pasta

Kale Pesto Pasta

I have to share this amazing creation with you. No my daughter would not eat it and I had to actually rinse off the pesto, however my husband and I gobbled it up and I just bought more ingredients to make more and freeze some for busy nights! I know most store bought pesto's are loaded in fat and calories, super delish, however I'm always out to make it healthier and lighter! Mix this with your favorite whole grain pasta, spread on a vegetable sandwich, or even brush some on some chicken before

Sesame Chicken and Vegetable Pasta for #SundaySupper and #ChooseDreams

This week the #SundaySupper family is talking all about healthy and fit lifestyles.

This wonderful event is being hosted by Denise over at Run DMT. Thanks Denise for all of your hard work to make this event happen! I love AmFam and their #Choosedreams campaign. Supporting this campaign is special to me in its own way. I love how

BBQ Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches for #SundaySupper

BBQ Hawaiian Chicken Sandwiches for #SundaySupper

Summer is officially here in the New England state where I reside. It means A LOT of grilling and eating outside any chance we get. My husband and I waited many years to have a beautiful deck to really enjoy! I love watching my kids play in the back yard while my husband flips steaks, or sometimes I'll get creative and figure out how to make a meatloaf or lasagna on the grill. I am happy to partner up with Gallo Family Vineyards and the #SundaySupper family for another exciting event. Grilling

Healthy Breakfast Wrap and 21 Day Fix Challenge Completed

Healthy Breakfast Wrap and 21 Day Fix Challenge Completed

Today marks my 21st day of the 21 Day Challenge.  I feel good but it can get discouraging at times. For example, when you've been busting your butt getting up at 5 am to workout 6 days a week before the kids get up, searching and searching for healthy recipes, meal prepping even before you go camping so you stay on track, and then your husband gets compliments on how good he looks. REALLY??!!  I hate how I still have to moderate a lot of moves. I'm trying to concentrate on the fact that I am

A Healthy Day From Start to Finish #beachbody

A Healthy Day From Start to Finish #beachbody

So as you all know I jumped on the beachbody band wagon. Whether I'm loosing weight or not, whether I'm loosing inches or not, I don't care. I'm feeling great and I have more energy than I've ever had.....and I'm saner than I've ever been! HA! So I've been experimenting with some fresher foods, healthier and cleaner recipes and trying my hardest to cheat, yes I had Pizza on my son's birthday, I'm only human. I however did not have ice cream or anything else at the party so I'd say I did well.

Dear Drew – Happy First Birthday

Dear Drew – Happy First Birthday

I can't even believe I'm writing this to you sweet boy. The time is going too fast for me.  I can't believe I've sent out invitations to your first birthday party. You completed this family exactly a year ago and it's so bitter sweet to me. You've grown up in so many ways in such a short time. You've learnt so much and your really becoming a little boy. I've bonded with you in a way I never even thought was possible. It's not that I didn't think I would, I just can't believe my heart could have

A New Me!! Healthy Breakfast Ideas

A New Me!! Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Well if your a follower of me on Facebook you must know by now that I've jumped on the BeachBody band wagon. It's not that I never wanted to. I just always used time as my excuse. I didn't have time. Who has time to workout when I barley have time to pee some days! Then I was introduced to my coach Kelly. We were laughing the other day because we forget how we got connected but we did and that's all that matters. I then joined a free Abs and Butt Challenge for the month of May with Kelly.

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast

This is my new addiction. A serious addiction. It's creamy, crunchy and filling!! I found this Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese a few months back, it has the lowest fat and calories of any kind of cream cheese or butter I've found, I do not feel guilty eating this stuff, some days I am strict and have half a serving and some days I'm bad and I have the full 2 tablespoons. I know, the rebel that I am huh! If you love avocado's this is your breakfast dish! Or snack....or lunch! Ingredients: 1-2
