One Pan Garlic Butter Baked Salmon with Broccoli

garlic roasted salmon 017

Mmmm Salmon, I could have this fish for  every night of the week with a different flavor or vegetable and not get bored. The best part about this meal: one pan! That's it. Hardly no clean up.  If you're wondering what this salmon tastes like, it's almost like shrimp scampi. Garlic, lemon, and butter. 3 easy and simple ingredients. This recipe will probably end up on your weekly menu rotation. Have you ever had roasted broccoli before? It's delicious. The sides get super crispy almost like k ...

Low Carb Bread

low carb bread 022

Low carb bread that actually tastes good?! Are you insane? Why yes, I am insane. This bread is made with ground up almonds. That means someone spent a lot of time processing almonds into flour for you, so you could still enjoy bread on a low carb diet. Does that make you happy? Yes, it does for me. I'm sorry if you're allergic to nuts. :( I have had this bag of almond flour sitting in my pantry for quite some time. I had got it the last time I had made a trip to Trader Joe's. I want to start ...

Baked Coconut Shrimp

I have something to admit. I haven't been going to the gym lately. Instead, there's this website called youtube where you can watch workouts and do them at home. One brilliant thing about doing this, is that you can workout in your bra and underwear. If you wore just that to the gym, you'd probably get kicked out. Jillian Michael's has been kicking my little booty. I'm also thinking about starting my own youtube channel. Might as well put my ipad to use other than using it to watch videos ...

Cheese and Saugsage Calzones

cheese and sasuage calzones 036

Cheese and Sausage Calzones are the perfect after school snack or even for a football game party. I like to order Pizza Hut's calzones from time to time. It makes me feel less guilty ordering those instead of ordering a whole entire pizza just for myself. I'm a light eater, and usually, I can just eat half a calzone and I'll save the other half for the next day. Calzones are just stuffed pizzas without the sauce. However, a lot of people like to dip their calzones in marinara sauce or pizza ...

Chopped Thai Chicken Salad

chopped thai salad 013

I must admit something. I've been eating pretty terrible lately. That shrimp scampi pizza I made yesterday wasn't that healthy. On top of that, I've been eating Chinese Food from Panda Express, oatmeal raisin cookies, my favorite flax seed chips from Sam's Club, cheese sticks and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I love carbs and I can't sop eating them! Thought a salad would be good to have in order to kick that carb habit. This is one of my favorite salads and I found it on Pinterest. It has ...

Today was a good day. My recipe for Peppermint Eggnog Punch is on the Huffington Post. :) I decided to celebrate and picked up some brie cheese at the grocery store. Then, I got off from work and quickly made some bacon wrapped little smokies with brown sugar for treat day tomorrow. It's going to be a HUGE company wide pot luck and there is well over 400 people where I work at. I'm wearing my fat pants tomorrow. ;) j/k. Those are going on the blog tomorrow. This Tator Tot, Sausage and Egg ...

Mexican Stuffed Shells

Just look at all that cheesy taco-y goodness in a jumbo pasta shell!. Mexican stuffed shells are going to be your favorite dish to make for Taco night! I was very tired today and really wanted to come home and take a nap. Instead, I ended up cooking and made three things. A frozen key lime pie, banana bread muffins, and this dish for Mexican stuffed shells. I am home alone this weekend and decided to make these Mexican stuffed shells since there was cheese on top and cream cheese in the ...

Quinoa Lasagna

1uinoalasagna 019

One of my pet peeves when making lasagna is, that I NEVER have enough ingredients to fill a 9 X 13 in pan and that is what the recipe calls for. That always irritates me to know end. I decided to try an 8 X 11 baking dish this time and that worked way better. Now I am satisfied and can mark that down for future reference. :) If you haven't noticed yet, I've been making a lot of recipes with Quinoa recently. I had made some granola bars this past weekend and I never got to take a picture of ...
