Healthier Chicken Fried Rice

I’m not a huge Chinese food person.  I like about 3 entrees of chinese: beef & broccoli, lettuce wraps and I absolutely LOVE chicken fried rice! Especially the kind from the mall food court, right?! But it is super greasy and I can’t imagine how many calories, so I thought I would try an at […]

Baked Green Bean Fries with Fry Dipping Sauce

This summer my bible study went on a boat ride and ate at a restaurant on the river.  While there we got an appetizer of fried green beans and I was immediately smitten! They were so amazing and I’ve been wanting to replicate them at home ever since.  I finally got around to making a […]

Hearty Minestrone Soup

This soup might be my new favorite! It was so hearty, comforting and so delicious! Mine is a little pasta heavy because I was halving the recipe, but forgot to halve the pasta!! Does that ever happen to anyone else? 😉 Happens to me more than I would like to admit! This is a fantastic […]

P.F. Chang’s Lettuce Wraps

I don’t know about you but I love the lettuce wraps at P.F. Chang’s. I always get them as my meal and eat them with a side of rice.  I got to thinking the other day and wanted to try my hand and recreating them at home.  I found two different recipes that both looked […]

Holiday Detox Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but I definitely ate my share of heavy carbs, cheese, cookies & candy over the week of Christmas & New Year’s.  While it all tasted amazing, it left me feeling tired and overloaded from all of that heavy food and I needed something to detox from all that overindulgance.  When […]

Roasted Green Beans

Hope you all have had a Happy New Year so far! We had such a great time over the holidays and I don’t know about you but I’m definitely having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.   The problem is its so much fun to just watch ballgames & movies and […]

Chicken Croquettes

This is going to one of those recipes I make frequently! It is one of the best entrees I have made in a while and so easy too!  I took a couple of things from different recipes and made my own.  These were so creamy and comforting and had a great crunch on the outside […]

Chicken Gyros

I read about these Chicken Gyros several years ago and they were all the rage on several blogs, but for some reason I never got around to making them.  I was searching for some healthier recipes and remembered these and thought they sounded like a fun, easy & healthy dinner.  I was planning to make […]

Baked Zucchini Fries

I’ve been wanting to make these for quite some time. I had fried zucchini strips a couple of years ago at Giordano’s pizza and was delighted to find this recipe since it was baked and healthier than the fried version. I actually served this as an appetizer before our pizza and dipped them in pizza […]

Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Cilantro Dip

I’m fully ready for summer and the pool! Can’t wait for this warm weather to be consistent. This shrimp screams summer and it was super easy to pull together too. I just realized the coconut was supposed to be toasted-haha…it was in the ingredients that way but not the directions, so I missed it! 🙂 […]
