Cottage Cheese Biscuits

Cottage Cheese Biscuits
These cottage cheese biscuits are so good. Don’t you hate it when you think you want to make something and then realize you are missing an ingredient?  I started to make biscuits yesterday morning and had no milk of any kind.  No almond milk, skim, etc.  You know what I had?  Hazelnut Nutpods!  Cottage cheese is healthy! As soon as I grabbed the nutpods out...

Zucchini Gratin

Zucchini Gratin
I have to think that zucchini is one of my favorite veggies.  So versatile!  Great in soups, grate into bread, bread and deep fry, or make this zucchini gratin. I am not actually sure this counts as a gratin, but let’s just call it that, shall we?  Maybe zucchini n cheese?   This is comfort food at it’s finest.  Cheesy goodness with a crunchy panko...

Asian Meatballs

Asian Meatballs
These Asian Meatballs are going to be going straight on the list of things to make soon! With everything that is going on in the world, I did a poll on my Instagram about what types of recipes you want to see, and the surprising response was making take-out dishes at home. I loved the idea of using the new calorie-free @Truvia Sweet Complete™ to...

Crispy Shrimp

Crispy Shrimp
Is there anything better than crispy shrimp? The other day I made these crispy shrimp and I basically want to put them on my menu each week. I used regular frozen shrimp from @marianos – just $6.99 a bag, but I swear they tasted just like lobster! The recipe is so simple – my first thought was to deep fry, but I know not everyone...

Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese
Hands down the best macaroni and cheese (other than my Mom’s growing up as a child) was a macaroni and cheese that was at an office potluck nearly 20 years ago. I took a small amount, but it on my plate, took one bite and went back and got a big scoop before it was all gone.   I asked “who made this recipe?!” The woman...

Black Bean Dip

Black Bean Dip
This black bean dip will soon be your go to appetizer! Happy Monday!   I hope you are doing well.  I am at about Day 41 of working from home.  It’s been interesting!    First off, if I haven’t mentioned it before, the commute is awesome.  Literally 15 steps from my bed to my dining room table to get to work.  I love being able to...

Air Fried Delicata Rings

Air Fried Delicata Rings
Air Fried Delicata Rings are delicious!  I first wrote the recipe for my “battle delicata squash” a year ago already.  Back then I didn’t have an air fryer and guessed on how to cook them in an air fryer.  Last year the battle was between the deep fryer and the oven, and well, not surprisingly, the deep fryer won hands down. I had so much...

Almost Butterless Biscuits

Almost Butterless Biscuits
After eating a big burger the night before, I wasn’t that hungry for breakfast – I know!  That hardly ever happens!  I grabbed a yogurt in the train station because they were on sale for .99 cents.  I just grabbed it and threw it in my bag.  It wasn’t until I was nearly done that I realized it was 2% fat – which means that...

Delirings!

Delirings!
I love my chia pudding parfaits and because I usually make three cups at a time, it’s an awesome meal prep on the weekend.  I make it on Saturday or Sunday and its ready to use by Tuesday – the chia seeds get so puffy and delicious.  Just remember 3 tablespoons of chia seeds per one cup of liquid. I used unsweetened almond milk, and...
