But never really thought to do it myself until last week. Dave had a hockey game so I thought “This means I can try something different without any commentary […]

Zucchini Pancakes

If there was a time of year that I’d say would be the WORST possible time for me to have a broken oven, I’d say it’d be Fall.  And as luck would have it, in the throws of one of my favorite baking seasons, I have just that.  Siiiiiiiiiiigh.  So no-bake land is where I’ve […]

Chicken Salad, Three Ways

One of my most favorite summertime lunches is chicken salad.  It’s easy to make while being light and refreshing on a hot summer day.  But I’ve come to learn that there are lots of great ways to shake this old classic up.

Skinny Summer BBQ Menu

Bathing suit season is among us peeps. With the coming of the nicer weather means the going of our favorite layers that we’ve been sporting through the winter and spring.  And sometimes it’s not until the clothing layers go away that we realize we’ve added a few ‘non-clothing’ layers that aren’t as easy to shed.

Skinny Frozen Mudslides

Spanakopita Made With Won Ton Wrappers

  One of our go-to Trader Joe’s appetizers is spanakopita – they’re light, on the healthy side, and 20 minutes in the oven dinner is served! There is however one thing about spanakopita that drives me slightly insane – FILO DOUGH. Now I know it’s tradition to make SPK (my spanakopita abreev for the rest […]

Black Bean Dip

Lately I’ve been feeling like there’s a lot of things trending in the world: Honey Boo Boo. The Harlem Shake. Kimye. Gluten Free eating.
