Super Slaw

So, a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win the most amazing giveaway. The lovely Katherine Martinelli was giving away a Magimiz by Robot-Coupe food processor to celebrate her 2 year Blogoversary. I was the lucky winner of this giveaway and I have been BLOWN AWAY by this food processor. It has a whole bunch of different blades for slicing, julienning and pureeing. In addition, I was lucky enough to get the juicer and smoothie attachments as well. So, I’ve been having a blast experimenting with my new toy. I’ve done some soups, some baking and some slicing but I decided it was time to try a slaw! [...]

Chicken Teriyaki Fried Rice

Sometimes you just need a quick healthy meal you can put together in a short amount of time. I came home from work tonight starving and debating just making a grilled cheese and calling it a night. Instead I decided to throw together a 30 minute stir fry combining some healthy and satisfying ingredients. I love variations of fried rice. I’ve made quite a few versions already: Veggie Fried Rice, Bok Choy Fried Rice, and Turkey Fried Rice. I like these types of dishes because you can combine filling brown rice with lots of healthy veggies and protein. I had some chicken breast and some yummy Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce, [...]

Roasted Beets with Balsamic Drizzle

I made an amazing discovery this weekend. We have a WINTER farmer’s market! Right down the street. I cannot tell you how happy this discovery made me. Lots of local farms, cheese, bread, pastry and other yumminess. The produce was gorgeous and there were many varieties of winter veggies. I picked up three different types of beets (don’t ask me to name them) and they looked so delicious I just had to roast them and make a salad. Now roasted beets is nothing new. This salad is not innovative or interesting or different than what you can get in many restaurants. But it was just SO GOOD that I had [...]

Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts

I don’t need to remind you of my love of Brussels Sprouts. My archives are filled with them, including some of my favorites such as Brussels Sprout Ceasar Salad, Brussels Sprout Hash, and Brussels Sprout Sitr Fry.  In addition to my recipe obsession, I make them pretty much 1-2x per week. Usually this involves throwing them in the over and then consuming a while later, but once in a while I try to tweak the usual formula for something a bit more exciting. To go with the fabulous Bacon Wrapped Roast Pork Loin I made this weekend, I decided a healthy Brussels Sprout side dish was a necessary addition to [...]

Vegetable Fried Rice

Continuing the theme of healthy eating, I wanted to make something veggie filled and healthy for dinner tonight. Luckily, I had a whole bunch of ingredients in the fridge to put together this tasty vegetable fried rice. The trick to restaurant style fried rice is to use cooked rice that is a day old. So you can make rice the day before or use any leftovers you may have. Since this isn’t always practical, I usually cook the rice first and let it cool while I stir fry the other ingredients. Any number of vegetables can be used. I can envision a version of this with broccoli and cauliflower. Snow peas, [...]

Leftover Turkey and Vegetable Hash – #Sunday Supper

Thanksgiving! A whole holiday devoted to eating delicious food. Every year Craig and I alternate spending Thanksgiving with each of our families. This year we’re heading to my mom’s house where I’ll be cooking and Craig will be grilling our turkey. I tend to overcook even when it’s just the two of us, so I really go overboard for the holidays. The result is usually a TON of leftovers. So, it only seems fitting that this week’s Sunday Supper theme is Thanksgiving leftovers. There are so many things you can do with your leftovers. Our family tradition is that Craig uses leftover turkey to make hash. He usually uses bacon, [...]
