Grilled Pineapple Topped with Yogurt and Nutsola Granola

Awhile back I saw a company on kickstarter and was intrigued. They had premade granola mix, all you had to do was add water to it and form your granola bars. It also had the form to shape the bars and a mat to bake it on. It was a whole foods mix, which I…

Chicken Enchilada Soup- Pressure Cooker Version

I am just learning how to use my Cuisinart pressure cooker. There are plenty of options for pressure cookers out there, but I was gifted this one from my sister. For this recipe, you will need some enchilada sauce. You can either buy it, or make your own. I want to show you how simple…

Lemon Basil Pasta

Are you looking for a quick meal, one that takes about 15 minutes? This is it. Plus, with so much basil coming on right now, I need every recipe I have to use it up! Lemon basil is one of my favorite flavor combos, so we will be eating plenty of it. I just LOVE…

Chickpea Tikka Masala

We don’t eat Indian food often. I like, it just isn’t one of the foods we always go for?!? When I do eat it though, I love it! The complex flavors are so appealing. Like this tikka masala, it was amazing. Although my husband prefers meat with our meals, we also…

Tomato and Goat Cheese Galette

Aren’t summertime tomatoes the best?!? I absolutely love them. Unfortunately I don’t have a large garden, like I normally keep, up and running this year. So, I am buying all my tomatoes this season. Even so, buying them at farmer’s market and the store is still getting me some…

Spicy Chicken Sausage with Cabbage and Apples

This is such a great, quick meal perfect for fall. Plus, it’s a one dish meal, it’s good all the way around. I love this mango and jalapeno sausage I get at Costco and used it for this meal. I used purple cabbage, but green will work just as well. I…

Tuscan Style Chicken with Zucchini and Tomatoes

This is a great, lighter version of a copycat recipe from Olive Garden. Although heavy cream is totally delicious, it’s also high in calories, so instead I used a small amount of cream cheese to make this a creamy dish what it is. Start by chopping you veggies, in this recipe, I used…

Fried Eggs In a Pepper Ring

How about this for a quick, healthy and super quick breakfast?!? This is it! Start by slicing your peppers, I sliced mine about 1/2 inch thick. You can skip this part, but I like mine sauteed. If you want to do like I did, Heat a little oil in a nonstick pan. Saute these…

Asian Cucumber Salad

Don’t let this simple salad fool you, it is packed with flavor! I threw this together tonight when I wanted a simple, light meal. It took me about 5 minutes start to finish. This is also a great snack or even side dish. As a warning, this is not a a make ahead…

Grilled Turkey and Avocado Burgers

I’m a big fan of ground chicken and turkey and use it in so many recipes. I love to make burgers with it, but you have to be really careful not to overcook as it dries out really quickly. Especially when you use the 99% fat free like I do! Adding back in…
