Green Herb Seasoning

Green Herb Seasoning

One day from my Whole 30 and I realize I need to make more spice blends for my series! For my next installment in my seasoning mix series, I combined ingredients from two different Penzey’s spice blends, their Fines Herbes and Sunny Paris seasonings. I […]

Homemade Salt-Free Old Bay-Style Seasoning

Homemade Salt-Free Old Bay-Style Seasoning

Here’s the second spice mix in my series of homemade seasoning blends. The first one was Roasted Chicken Seasoning, which is actually a good all-purpose seasoning with poultry and pork. Now I’ve moved onto a fish seasoning for seafood. This is my version of Old […]

Marinated Baby Cucumber Salad

Marinated Baby Cucumber Salad

Saturday night I stopped at the store to quickly pick up some ingredients for dinner. Just some ground beef and a vegetable…which of course turned into me needing a cart because I bought all sorts of other things I thought I “had” to have…at any […]

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Since coming home, I have been doing so much cooking, which has made me so happy! It’s nice to take a little break and do those activities that make me really happy. One recipe I prepared this week was a variation from The Paleo Diet […]

Potato-Cheddar Croquettes

 One of my favorite websites is bodyrock.tv, which has great quick (and intense) workouts and healthy recipes. I have been very busy lately and I enjoy doing their quick workouts because I can (attempt to do) them in a short amount of time and get […]

Chicken, Carrot, and Kale Stir-fry with Sweet Chili-Garlic Sauce

Chicken, Carrot, and Kale Stir-fry with Sweet Chili-Garlic Sauce

I don’t know if it’s the cold weather or ease of readiness, but lately I have been eating soup at least once a day (either lunch of dinner). Don’t get me wrong, I love soup. However, on a recent shopping trip to get a microwave […]

Beef Vegetable Soup

Beef Vegetable Soup

For a borderline adventure this past weekend, I tried a new local branch of grocery stores instead of the usual Wal-Mart. I definitely prefer local markets to Wal-Mart because they usually have interesting sales going on. The grocery store, United, seems local to the Texas […]

Apple-Dill Coleslaw

Apple-Dill Coleslaw

I hope the New Year is going well for you so far. I have a few days left in Indiana, then I head back to Texas to begin my Ph.D. program. Therefore I’m feeling a mixture of anticipation, anxiety, and sadness (could not think of […]
