Monkfish Fillets

I had wanted to try that fish for a very long time now. I had heard so much good things about it. Apparently, if one can put aside just how disgustingly scary that fish looks, its flesh resembles that of a lobster. It’s even referred to as the poor man’s lobster. I wonder why they […]

Evening Snack

Allright, allright, I confess! Tonight’s supper didn’t make my blog, not because I had leftovers or because I ate out, not even because I had a repeat meal. Nope. That would’ve been too easy and wouldn’t have called for a confession! I didn’t post tonight’s supper simply because it didn’t fit the healthy bill, or […]

Sweet Valentine’s Indulgence

If you have been reading me for a while now, you probably know that I like to indulge in something decadent about once a month. I mean, really, indulge! And what better occasion than Valentine’s Day to go for a little (or big!) chocolate extravaganza! I LOVE to bake and decorate cakes, but I don’t […]

Spinach and Sausage Oven Baked Spaghetti

Tonight, I cheated a little… While not entirely unhealthy, tonight’s meal called for Italian Sausage, which isn’t the healthiest meat you can find. BUT, I have to say that this was the best pasta dish I’ve had in a very long time. I’d even say one of the best I’ve ever had. Of course, if […]

Hummus and Fattoush Salad

I love hummus. Love it. Could sit down with a bowl and eat the whole thing with a spoon. For some reason, I’ve always thought it was really complicated to make at home. I just found out it isn’t, really. Lengthy, yes. You have to think of soaking your chickpeas the night prior, then you […]

Oranges!

When I like something, I could eat it every single day and never tire of it. Sometimes, I also wish I could have it more than once a day… OK, this is starting to sound a little weird… moving on! This week, oranges were on sale at my local supermarket. 10 pounds of the fruit […]

Simple Egg White Omelet

This is one of my favorite things to have for lunch. I really wish there was an easy way I could make those at work. Egg white omelets are just so good for you, loaded with protein and extremely low in fat and calories, they are also very easy to make, providing you have access […]

Mac ‘n Cheese Test #2 – Major Fail

I won’t even bother writing much about it. It was a total fiasco. Pretty much tasteless, the macaroni was way overcooked, I can’t find anything positive to say about this dish… To my daughter, who will be reading those lines: Sorry Tasha, it has nothing to do with your cooking skills, it’s strictly to do […]

Chili Made Healthy

On Super Bowl day here, there is never a question as to what we are going to eat. It’s become tradition now to make a huge batch of good old hot Chili Corn Carne. Don’t ask. We’re strange like that… While Chili is already a pretty healthy dish if you don’t load it up with […]

Cauliflower, Spinach and Egg Casserole

Tonight’s meal had not been planned at all. In fact, I had to bump what was on the menu to next week because I failed to read the recipe when I made my grocery list and had not bought enough spinach. Not even remotely. I needed 3 times what I had purchased… So my daughter […]

Blueberry Pancakes

This morning, I decided to revisit my oatmeal protein pancake recipe but I added some fresh blueberries to the batter after blending it. And this time, I divided the batter into 3 smaller pancakes. Wise decision! Trust me, these pancakes are pure heaven. Eating them almost feels like “cheating” (I so hate the concept behind […]

Chicken and Mushroom Stuffed Crêpes

While not your super easy weeknight meal, this dish is way too good to be frowned upon just because it will keep you in the kitchen for a fair amount of time. It’s one of those meals that is good enough to be selected for that special night when you have guests coming over, or […]

Cold Shrimp Salad

Tonight’s supper is already done, photographed and in the fridge marinating, letting all those flavors mingle and develop. I already had a sneak taste (shhhh, don’t tell my daughter…) and I have to say I soooo can’t wait for supper time, for this should be good! Here’s what you’ll need if you want to try […]

Vegetable Barley Soup

If you read my previous post, then you already know that today was a cold and snowy day, exactly the kind of day for a hearty meal such as this one. A good old vegetable soup. I’ve had vegetable soup countless times in my life, but I have to say that this particular one was […]
