4 Ingredient Egg and Sausage Muffins

4 ingredient sausage and egg muffins 001

Do you ever get in a breakfast rut like I do? I'll eat the same thing for days and days, and don't bother changing my breakfast up. Lately, it's been peanut butter toast and my coke zero. Don't laugh at me, cause coke zero is my morning coffee. These sausage and egg muffins are so easy, you don't really need a recipe for them. They're so versatile, if they're vegetarian just leave out the sausage and add in some mushrooms or bell peppers. Use bacon instead of sausage or chorizo. Make some ...

Skinny S’mores Cupcakes

Skinny S'mores Cupcakes 015

There's this chain bakery in town here called Gigi's. On Tuesdays, they have a S'mores cupcake and it's topped with mini marshmallows that have been blow torched, to make them look like they were on a campfire.  It also has a Hershey's chocolate square on top with marshmallow frosting. Not sure how many calories it was, but it was amazing.  That was my indulgence on Tuesday after work. It wasn't too sweet, and most of the cupcakes at Gigi's have frosting on top of the cupcakes that have to be at ...

Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef

Slow Cooker Barboca Beef 036

On Friday when I got off work at noon, I was craving Chipotle's Barbacoa Beef rice bowls.  I was going to head on over there and get one, but then I thought why? I can just make them at home and have Barbacoa beef for a week! It was almost meant to be because beef roast was on sale and so was corn for their famous corn salsa that I just love. I put the beef in the slow cooker and went off to take some pics of the Blue Angels. They're in town this weekend doing shows and a friend and I went to ...

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls

Bang Bang Shrimp Rolls 011

I took my famous Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp recipe and turned it into a shrimp roll.  When you're craving a lobster roll use shrimp instead. Shrimp is much cheaper than Lobster is. I WISH I could eat lobster every week of my life and live in a mansion, with my own personal chef. That would grand wouldn't it? The shrimp is tossed in a spicy yogurt sauce with Sweet Chili and Sriracha sauce. The first time I had Bang Bang shrimp was when I ate at the Ground Round, but their version of Bang Bang ...

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce 011

Whenever I want to eat something healthy for dinner, I go for my go-to meal. Salmon and steamed broccoli. I ALWAYS have salmon in my freezer and that one green vegetable that looks like a little tree too. I'm always looking for different ways to flavor salmon and teriyaki is the way to go. Sure, you could use one of those store bought bottles of teriyaki marinade, but I prefer to make my own. You can cook the sauce in a small pan until the sauce becomes this thick syrupy consistency. I'm ...

Kale Pesto with Toasted Walnuts

kale pesto and cheesecake bars 049

Look at this gorgeous pesto! It doesn't have your typical basil leaves in there, it's kale. Super healthy, super food kale! Add in some toasted walnuts, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese, and voila. You have a spread for some very delicious pizza, pasta, or a spread on a crostini with some ricotta cheese. This weekend the Street Fair is here. There's usually a bunch of crafts and artsy stuff there. You walk up and down the streets of Broad Way looking at all the crafts. The best part is the food ...

Watermelon Freezer Pops

watermelon freezer pops 015

Here's the thing about layered ice pops. The waiting.  The jello layers take about 20 - 30 minutes to get hard enough in the ice box where you can start adding the second layers. The recipe states 20 minutes no less, but not every freezer is created equal. There are white fridges, stainless steal fridges, nicer fridges than the one I have... Boy, would I ever love to get a new fridge because it is ANCIENT. In order to actually do that though, there would have to be a lot of kitchen remodel ...

Baked Bufffalo Chicken Taquitos

baked buffalo chicken taquitos 045

It's been quite awhile since I've made anything with buffalo chicken. A really long time! And... it's the weekend. Tomorrow, I am going to my FIRST Frozen themed birthday party and I must say, that I am pretty excited to go. I haven't even seen the movie yet, but just by surfing through Pinterest I know who the characters are. :) If you cook the chicken in a slow cooker all day long these buffalo chicken taquitos come together pretty fast. Other options are to have a chicken already cooked in ...
