One of my very first blog post 3 years ago was about our Seafood Ceviche recipe which we had tweaked and finally perfected (to our taste, of course). Now, I have added a new twist to this recipe by creating a mini taco version of them but with a unique twist…the shell is a round …

Around this time last year, I blogged about my favorite homemade Chicken Noodle Soup from an old Southern Living magazine from the ’90’s that I have updated over the years.  It is a winning recipe, I promise!  Please see the original link I posted below and give it a try.  However, I am working on …

About 2 years, I blogged about a lasagna recipe that I discovered in Cooking Light magazine.  Not being a huge lasagna fan, this was one I truly loved and I have spent the past 2 years improving on an already great recipe!  The typical lasagna has 600+ calories and this version only has 378 per …

One of my favorite food nationalities is Mexican cuisine but traditionally it is landmine of calories and fat!  Fortunately, one of my favorite chicken enchilada recipes is a pleasant change from  the norm.  Packed with fresh flavors and ingredients, my Veggies Stuffed Chicken Enchiladas fit the bill when it comes to healthy and tasty!

I love Mexican food….the cheesier and spicier the better but usually it also is loaded with tons of calories and lots of fat.  Being that the New Year brings all kinds of new resolutions (sometimes the same ones every year…ha, ha), like eating better and doing more exercise, I thought I would make my first blog …

It is the first week of November and in East Tennessee, we have already seen snow fall in our area from just a little dusting to up two feet in the mountains!  With these blustery conditions becoming more and more frequent, we are in need of three components for our weeknight meals…easy, healthy, and comforting …

Growing up, lasagna was not my favorite thing…In fact, I can actually say I didn’t like it at all.  My aversion to it was all the variations that I had tried included cottage cheese and something about its consistency didn’t jive with my palate.  As I grew older and began cooking in the kitchen myself, …

It is that time of the summer harvest season when the tomatoes are causing their vines to droop, heavy with the green and red fruit.  Sometimes it’s hard to find new ways to use these delicious, juicy delights but why not use them in a way that you can enjoy them when fresh tomatoes aren’t …
