Recipe Redux – Beef and Bean Taco Meat

Beef and Black Bean Tacos

This month’s Recipe Redux is Two For One. The idea being you cook once and eat twice. I do this all the time – finding ways to repurpose leftovers into another meal. My children are rather picky about eating leftovers so if I make extra of something, I have to find multiple ways of using […]

Recipe Redux: Chocolate Caramel Banana Bites

Frozen Chocolate Caramel Banana Bites

This month’s Recipe Redux is our favorite chocolate pairings, since it is February after all. Of course I love chocolate and will eat it will just about anything. It was no easy task settling on my favorite healthy pairing. But I do love chocolate with fruit and I absolutely adore it with caramel. My love […]

Homemade Caramel Sauce in 5 Minutes

CaramelSauce1

I admit it, I have a sweet tooth. And almost as much as I love chocolate, I love caramel! Put the two together, and oh my….but wait, I’m jumping ahead of myself to another post later today. I think I’ve made my own caramel sauce maybe once. On a stovetop and it took a lot […]

Recipe Redux – Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

This month’s Recipe Redux is about reflection, since it is that time of year, and the fact that we’ve been doing the Recipe Redux for 42 months now! It is hard to believe we’ve been doing it for that long! And it has grown tremendously since then with such a large group that we are now posting […]

Recipe Redux – Potato Rolls

Family Recipe for Potato Rolls with a healthy makeover

This month’s Recipe Redux theme, in honor of Thanksgiving, is a food memory for which we are thankful and then a healthy “redo” of that recipe. This was pretty easy for me to come up with an idea as one memory and food jumps out at me this time of year. My family has always made potato rolls […]

Menu Plan Monday – November 17

Apple Peeling, Coring and Slicing Gadget

And we are already half-way through November! I’ve been remiss again on posting my menu plans. I’ve had a loose plan in my head the past few weeks, but jam-packed weekend activities, time with family, and lots of work testing out recipes for My Menutrition have put my blogging on the back burner a bit along […]

I was not compensated for my time.  There are many things to love about October such as pumpkins, leaves turning colors and pasta. Yes, pasta. After all, October […]

Recipe Redux – Oven Dried Grape Tomatoes

Oven Dried Grape Tomatoes

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Get Your Dehydrator On” to show how you can preserve the season’s best produce for later. I don’t own a dehydrator, but a low, slow oven as well as time can turn out the same results. We are at the end of tomato season, so it is the perfect time […]
