Balsamic Oven Roasted Edamame

So I bought some frozen edamame at Costco the other day.  And I normally just nuke it in the microwave so it’s warm and eat it as a healthy snack.  But this time I decided to try something else.  I decided since oven roasting with balsamic has become one of my favorite ways to cook


Portabella Mushroom Tacos

So I’m all in favor of Meatless Mondays.  I do like meat and there’s NO way I could ever be a complete vegetarian, but every so often I like to slip a meatless meal into the rotation.  It’s funny because the other day I made this with the full intention of tricking the kids into


Cucumber and Tomato Salad

I try to make a vegetable with every meal.  It’s hard sometimes, and the kids complain, but I think it makes for a more balanced meal.  Well, I know it makes for a more balanced meal.  Every week I grocery shop for veggies, some of which are consumed immediately and with no complaint and some


Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Ramen

Every Wednesday I make a slow cooker meal.  Something I can just throw together in the morning and forget about for the rest of the day.  Wednesday’s are my busy day because I take L to swimming lessons about 25 minutes away.  And when I get home, I’d like to have dinner already ready so


Garlicky Asian Chicken Thighs

Most days I have zero ideas what I’m making for dinner.  So I take out a package of chicken and hope for the best.  Some days I get zero complaints.  Which is crazy because I have two picky tiny humans.  One of which likes meat and one of which likes cheese and carbs.  So it’s


Mediterranean Hummus Tuna Salad

I’m not usually a big lunch person.  Because 9 times out of 10 I’m running around all day and don’t have a lot of time to fix myself lunch.  Usually I’ll have a shake or a bar and call it a day.  But sometimes I find the time to make myself something healthy and yummy.


Cheesy-Garlicky Baked Meatballs

My son is obsessed with meatballs.  I’d say there never was a meatball he didn’t like.  Which is weird because on the whole, he doesn’t usually like meat.  He’d much prefer cheese and bread.  But meatballs.  Meatballs he loves.  I get a request several times a week for spaghetti and meatballs.  Which I try to


Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, but it’s also my favorite.   It really starts my day off on the right foot and keeps me going.   If I had to skip a meal, it most certainly would not be breakfast.  Some people may disagree with me and that’s their right, but


Healthy Chicken and Vegetable Noodle Soup

It’s winter and I’m cold.  And the kids had some “cold” days off school last week.  It truly was #thewinterbreakthatdoesntend.  LOL.  I mean, I love my kids and I love winter break, but it’s not the same as summer break.  It’s not all fun and games and you can’t send them outside to play for


Slow Cooker Beef and Black Bean Chili

I love a good slow cooker chili.  Throw a bunch of stuff into the slow cooker in the am and dinner is ready by the pm.  The best part is, it doesn’t really matter what you put in it.  For me, it kind of depends on what I have on hand.  Usually some kind of
