Yesterday was one of those “get things done” days and food was high on the to-do list! First, I spent time in the kitchen prepping my Healthy Layered Mediterranean Dip that I was going to be making on today’s WBIR/Mornings with Fox 43.

Simple is Sustainable…and that is exactly what Day 4 was for me. It was all about leftovers and a simple dinner with no cooking involved. It was Saturday and my husband was currently out of town. So, it was just me, Lily and Mylo (my feline friends) and my best cuddle buddy, Oscar, my little …

Normally, when you think of poppers. an image of jalapeno and cheese comes to mind instantly but in the foodie world, the term “popper” means a bite size treat that you can just “pop” into your mouth.  As most of you know, one of my signature dishes that I’m known for is my “Smokey Jalapeno …

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 …

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 …
