Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

Chicken Mole with Baked Plantains

I made this mole sauce ages ago and kept the rest in the freezer. I got about 16 servings out of it and I used half the recipe. The only thing I changed is I left out raisins because at the time I wasn’t big on all […]

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

I definitely love stuffing sweet potatoes with things. Just type “sweet potato” into the search bar and you’ll find at least 5 stuffed sweet potato recipes. And many more that just incorporate this delicious tuber in some other way. Sweet potatoes are easily in my […]

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

I saw this idea on the Lifetime Weightloss Blog. They post some great articles and recipes on it so I’m on there pretty often! I saw the photo of this and thought it was “adorable” to make something that simply looked like a hot dog out […]

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

These were my first BEEF burgers in a loooooong time. I realized I needed more B-Vitamins and Iron for my energy levels so I started incorporating red meat again. Last week it was steak and veggies. The week before I made these burgers because 93% ground beef […]

Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

This Creole Shrimp is now one of my favorite meals. It’s probably only the second or third time I’ve made a similar dish. It’s easy (aside from peeling shrimp). I love shrimp but can only afford the frozen stuff on sale. It’s a shame. Luckily when I […]

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

I just ate this moments before writing this and I just have to brag about it for a minute. I marinated this chicken at about 4:30 this morning (the day that I’m writing this)…I woke up, unable to sleep as usual and felt like getting […]

Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

These meatballs are probably the tastiest ones I’ve made yet and no recipe inspiration was used. I simply used the chipotle peppers and limes I needed for the peach glaze I made this week and turned them into meatballs. I served them with quinoa, jalapenos […]

Chipotle Peach Glazed Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower and Collard Greens

Chipotle Peach Glazed Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower and Collard Greens

I’m trying to go more outside of my box lately. I want to add variety and do different things than some of my go-to’s (like Mexican food). So I made a TON of this Chipotle peach glaze over the weekend and only used it on […]

Roasted Red Pepper Cajun Turkey Quinoa Bowls

Roasted Red Pepper Cajun Turkey Quinoa Bowls

This delicious recipe was yet another one of those I kind of had a loose idea for and made up as I went. Similar to my Cilantro-Lime Coconut Shrimp and Zoodles or my Spicy Sriracha Mustard Tuna Salad. But it turned out perfect. Just the right amount of […]

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Ah, shrimp tacos are hands down one of my favorite summer meals. I don’t even need the tortillas or cheese because there is so much other good stuff going on here. This recipe makes for great lettuce tacos – even if it’s a bit messy […]
