Caramelized Baked Chicken Thighs

carmalized baked chicken 010

I've been having issues with my wrists lately and there's nothing I can do about it until November when I can get health insurance. It's got to the point where I can barely grip a mouse and I have to ware a wrist splint at work for part of the day. It helps keep my wrist in alignment. My job doesn't offer any benefits for that either. Talk about SOL. I've also been doing 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michael's and my waste used to be at 35 and I am now a 31! I'm losing body fat like crazy and a ...

Baked Coconut Shrimp

baked coconut shrimp 007

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 ...

Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage

gnocci 077

I've been through a lot of mixed emotions lately and I'll tell you why. Back in April, I got a divorce. It's been hard for me to come up with recipes for this blog, because that means cooking for one person now. I'll see a casserole recipe that I want to try and then think to myself, no I can't make that, there's too many servings and lots of leftovers. I'm not a leftover person. It's been mostly just eggs, protein, and a frozen pizza every now and then. I've been trying to work on making ...

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 ...
