Ground Turkey Rolled Pizza

I have to admit that I’m a food show junkie. I watch every food show from Food Network to Rachael Ray. I love to learn new recipes and techniques. I got this idea from watching a Rachael Ray episode. I love her show! She made a turkey rolled meatloaf, but I’m in the mood for … Continue reading Ground Turkey Rolled Pizza

Lollipop Chicken and Veggies

Watching what you eat is so daunting. There are so many rules, and your restricted on what you eat. Blah, blah, blah. You really have to be a responsible adult, and I hate adulting. You might be restricted on what you eat, but you’re not restricted on HOW you eat. Making a playful plate of … Continue reading Lollipop Chicken and Veggies

Curry Chicken and Rice

Curry. I love to eat it at restaurants, but (and keep this between us)I'm a little intimidated to make it. Between the unfamiliar ingredients and the unbelievable silky taste, I thought this was a bit beyond my cooking skills - but Hubby asked me to make it, so I tried. Turns out, it's not so scary, … Continue reading Curry Chicken and Rice

Rack of Lamb

Presenting Rack of Lamb is SO impressive, but secretly it's really easy. You can personalize your lamb with herbs and sauces. I'm not a fan of mint, but I love herbs.

Salmon Wellingtons

Salmon is one of my favorite foods to cook and eat. I try to stay away from fatty foods, but salmon is the good kind of fat, which is good news! Cooked right, salmon is juicy and flaky.

Angel Bites

Watching your weigh doesn't mean you can't have dessert. A little bit of heaven every once in awhile is actually a good way to stay on your weight-loss course. If you deny your sweet tooth completely, you are more likely to go cray-cray on sugar and sweets, and make really bad decisions. Instead, try this … Continue reading Angel Bites

One Pot Turkey Sausage and Tomato Meal

Regular sausage can hide all the fat and calories. But, you can use Turkey Sausage in any sausage recipe and you won't miss out on anything. This is my Skinless Turkey Sausage recipe in a tomato sauce with pan seared veggies. I'm drooling just thinking about it. As an extra bonus, it's easy to make … Continue reading One Pot Turkey Sausage and Tomato Meal

Smoked Salmon

Salmon is an impressive meal to serve, but it is SO easy to make. Salmon is meaty, fatty (good fat), and flavorful. You might even feel like you're cheating on you diet. No worries, you not.  I add a bit of flair to my salmon just for that extra wow. 1 pound salmon (feeds 4) … Continue reading Smoked Salmon

Flavorful Skinless Chicken Legs

Chicken Legs ARE delish, but the skin just ads senseless fat. Some say that's where there flavor is - well, then they don't know how to add flavor.  This is my skinless chicken leg recipe that has SO much flavor, it's almost a crime. Skinless chicken legs (1-2 per person) [note: if you can't find … Continue reading Flavorful Skinless Chicken Legs
