Avocados are so creamy and full of healthy fats. I haven't made avocado dressing with cilantro and lime in a while. I serve it many different ways. However, this morning I really wanted avocado dressing for breakfast. It only takes 5 minutes to make and my avocados were already ripe. Why not! Avocados are especially great to have when you want a filling meal. Many times I have eggs and avocado for breakfast with fruit. I don't care to have toast with eggs most of the time.
Happy Spring! It's finally here! Some days it feels like Spring is in the air but other days, it reminds me it's still March and here in Massachusetts, we have the craziest weather. One day it's cold, one day it's warm! Regardless of the weather, I know spring is slowly trickling in. To celebrate the [...]
My last post was a Blackened Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese recipe. Today's recipe, is a Blackened Shrimp Salad with Red Kidney Beans. Same seasoning but a completely different salad. It is a perfect salad for meatless Monday! Shrimp is great to make during the week since it cooks in under 8 minutes tops. This [...]
Soup with LOTS of lemon and lime is a must for me when it comes to chicken soup. I make herb lemon chicken soup several times during the winter. Surprisingly, I haven't made it much this winter. I love saving the leftovers, in the freezer for those sick days, as I don't enjoy canned soup much. Leftover soup tastes even better the following the day. It's even a better recipe for the crockpot. It smells so good cooking the whole day.
Seasonings and marinades are endless, with so many different combinations. I thought this would be a great time to share my top 3 favorite seasoning/marinades, since Thanksgiving is around the corner. Heck the holidays are here! Get adventurous and try something new for your tastebuds! Best of all, you can try them for lunch or [...]
Butter, garlic and lime! What an amazing combination. Cod is a fish that is pretty bland on its own. Which is great when you want to experiment with flavors. I don’t usually buy cod often but wanted something different. For lunch this weekend, I made a sautéed buttery, garlic cod with lime. If I had thought of the recipe in advance I would have let the fish marinate for a few hours before cooking. However, it still turned out delicious.
To celebrate my 12 year anniversary, with my husband, I made some steak covered with chimichurri sauce and some scallops. I can’t believe its been that long already with 3 kids! We usually go out for dinner to celebrate at our favorite restaurant, which is also where he proposed! Times have changed as you all know with this pandemic and we now have a 13 month old who is attached to my hip. I decided to make a nice lunch for us to celebrate. The secret to my steak is this 4 ingredient Chimichurri sauce.
Did you know if there was one food you could live on for the rest of your life it would be potatoes? Potatoes essentially have all the amino acids and proteins our bodies need. However, we would have deficiencies with other vitamins. Most of us love potatoes and I'd say french fries is the most popular! My favorite potato to make at home is the baby potatoes. Why? Roasted baby potatoes are so easy to make and don't take forever to bake!
