Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

  Recently my obsession with the tomato, basil, and mozzarella combo has raised its ugly (tasty?) head. Basil is so cheap during the summer that I bought a massive basil plant and have been eating off of it for weeks. I wanted to make my tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwich, but it was bugging me how …

Chicken Enchiladas

I’m back, baby!! Or, I should say, I’m back with baby. The new baby has been successfully thrown onto the pile (of children, that is). Woot!  In other news, I recently found myself with nothing edible in my kitchen but tortillas, cheese, frozen chicken, and a can of tomato sauce. Chalk that up to lack of sleep and …

Portabella Pizza Bites

Welcome Pinterest people! Check out my P.P.P.S. below just for you!! =) If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a big fan of pizza. For some reason it just seems so special and indulgent to me, perhaps because it has gotten such a bad rap as a junk food. Well, the good news is that …

If you’re wondering if I’m getting lazy and just relying on my readers to supply all of my recipes for me, the answer is ABSOLUTELY. Take it away, Jessica! Ingredients: …

Spaghetti Squash

Well, it’s official! My hubby has started round 2 of P90x! I’m back to cooking every meal and managing his nutrition, which you’d think would be a no-brainer for me at this point (given the website and all), however with this new vegan/vegetarian bent we’re on, I’m having to rethink everything. To a certain degree …

Italian Polenta

Italian Polenta

Today’s recipe is less of a recipe, and more of a serving suggestion! I recently learned that polenta (aka corn grits) can be served Italian-style in the place of pasta. So you basically cook the polenta, and then serve it with some tasty sauce on top. I served it with my Meat Spaghetti Sauce over …

Creamy Tofu Pesto with Artichokes and Mushrooms

OK, guys. I’ve made a super exciting discovery! (Well, exciting as food discoveries go. I have to take my thrills where I can get them!) Remember how in the Creamy Pesto and Kielbasa recipe I was a little concerned about adding yogurt to my Spinach Pesto in order to add creaminess, because it adds that …

Sarah’s Hot Diggity-Dawgs

Who knew that hot dogs, potatoes, and cheese could constitute health-food?! Sarah came up with a good one here. I also love how her Tennessee accent comes through in this recipe. I choose to believe that her voice sounds just like this! Thanks for your contribution, Sarah. Take it away! “I have a new recipe. …

Danielle’s Spinach Pie

Spinach Pie

First of all, thank you for all of your vegetable-related emails. Many of you who either 1) love vegetables or 2) hate them like I do, have taken pity on me and sent me recipes or suggestions for making veggies more palatable. I’m planning to try many of your suggestions, however once again, Danielle sent …

Danielle’s Kicked Up Stuffed Peppers

P90x Stuffed Bell Peppers

So Danielle totally read my mind. I have been thinking for some time that a stuffed bell pepper recipe was missing from this site, but I have been too lazy to get off my butt and come up with one! Boy am I glad for my laziness now, because Danielle did the work for me, …

Baja Zucchini Boats

Do any of you remember the Baja Potato Boats at Applebees? They were my favorite meal there for years. Then one day I went and they had vanished from the menu. Tragedy!! Applebees has never been the same for me since. Anyway, they were the inspiration for this recipe, even though this recipe tastes nothing …

BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

Hiya folks. First of all I wanted to let you know that I won’t be posting for the next week or two – we’ve had a death in the extended family that I need to take some time off to deal with. =/ I’ll start posting again the week of August 18th. I’ll leave you …

Twice “Baked” Potatoes

OK, I’m going to toot my own horn a little on this one. THESE ROCK. When you have only one carb serving to spare, the dish you use it for had better be good. You know how Elaine on Seinfeld asks her boyfriend if he is sponge-worthy? When you are on P90x, the question becomes, …

Christy’s Whole Wheat Crepes

OK guys, this is another super exciting one! The whole wheat crepe is an awesome invention, because it is so thin that it is not much on the carb front, and yet it can be filled with oh-so-many tasty fillings. Make them sweet, and they are breakfast or dessert crepes – fill them with meat …

Pollo Relleno

Here is another one of my favorite dishes from pre-P90x, with a few minor tweaks to make it work within the P90x portion approach! I formerly made this in a similar fashion to Chicken Cordon Bleu, with the ingredients inside chicken that had been pounded thin and rolled. Then I would roll the outside in …

Chicken Fajita Pita

Chicken Fajita Pita

One of my favorite fast food meals is the Jack in the Box Chicken Fajita Pita. The other day I was mourning the fact that I couldn’t get one because we were eating at home, when suddenly I realized – I have chicken, I have pitas, and I have toppings!  Don’t know why I never …

Grilled Parmesan Zucchini

Grilled Parmesan Zucchini

You know me – vegis are not my favorite thing in the world. However I want to be healthy, so I do force them down, and of course now that I’m managing my hubby’s P90x nutrition, he has at least 4 servings a day. As a result, I am constantly on the hunt for ways …

Three Cheese Marinara Muffin Melt

Marinara Muffin Melt

So I spent most of yesterday trying to make homemade whole-wheat no-egg-yolk ravioli for you guys. I started around 9 a.m., and it was finally ready to eat at 2 p.m. It was beautiful, filled with yummy filling, and totally gross! lol. Sorry, I tried! As I was slaving over it, hand kneading the dough, …
