Homemade Almond Butter

July 19, 2013

Almond butter and I really aren’t the best of friends. I find it the most difficult to make out of all the nut butters and I also don’t particularly like its taste. I find it a bit bland and bitter. My daughter doesn’t like it either unfortunately- her loyalty lies with peanut butter and Nutella […]

How to Make Almond Milk

June 19, 2013

Not too long ago I came into possession of a Vitamix. For months I went back and forth as to whether it was worth the expense or not, whether I would actually use it or not, or whether to bring it up to my Husband or not… haha I fully expected to get shot down by […]

Cranberry Cherry Chicken Wrap

June 14, 2013

Ohhhh, cranberry cherry chicken wrap… where have you been all my life? I’ve always been a fan of those savory-sweet, fruit-nut, type salads. Case and point- Broccoli Salad. Love it. But this chicken wrap is a whole different beast. Thinly sliced seasoned chicken breast. Chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Dried cranberries and cherries. Chopped, toasted pecans. A […]

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Veggie Burgers

June 10, 2013

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

April 4, 2013

For the longest time whenever anybody asked me what my favorite meal was I would answer, “Chicken parmesan.” Now, I couldn’t even begin to tell you what it is. Chicken parmesan still holds a special place in my heart though. Even more dear to it now though has to be Eggplant Parmesan. As I grew […]

Lighter King Ranch Casserole

April 1, 2013

Casseroles are pretty much my favorite thing to make for dinner and probably the least favorite thing for my Husband to eat. He has very plain taste and likes his meat and vegetables to be separated for the most part- it’s all meat and potatoes for this guy. Not to mention his general disgust for […]

I stumbled upon this recipe one afternoon while on the search for something healthy and vegetarian to make for lunch. I am a big fan of beans so this recipe instantly appealed to me. Of course, I had no idea what an Enfrijolada was… according the recipe introduction “Enfrijoladas are comforting enchiladas made by drenching […]
