Toasty Roasted Cauliflower (Best Cauliflower EVER)

Best Cauliflower EVER! Toasty Roasted Cauliflower

If you have followed this site for any amount of time, you know that I’m not a veggie person. Sadly, P90x nutrition requires vegetables, and LOTS OF THEM! (If you hate’em like us, try some of these P90x veggie strategies.)

Well here I give you the most delicious veggie …

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 …

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks

Mmmmm. Bacon. Need I say more? No, I don’t, but I will, because if anything can make me wax poetic, it’s bacon.

So here’s my bacon haiku:

Bacon wrapped chicken,
So tasty. Now let’s press play.
P90x rocks.

That was deep. =D
Clearly, bacon makes everything better. Tastily marinated chicken …

BBQ Salmon

So yesterday was a landmark day in our household. My hubby and I (brace yourself) ATE FISH! Yes, the inconceivable happened. For almost two years people have written to me asking me where the fish recipes were on this site, and I wrote back to them with a one-word email: “Yuck!” (Well, maybe I was a bit …

Whole Chicken


Hi folks!
Since I’m making you wait a few more days for the P90x menu and shopping list ebook, I thought I’d at least give you a new recipe to chew on in the meantime! I’m nice like that. =)

Whole chickens have always terrified me. In a culinary sense, and in a …

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 …

Minestrone Soup

Growing up I hated sandwiches. Weird, I know! I actually didn’t discover a sandwich I liked until I married my hubby and he made me a delicious sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And of course, now I’m addicted to Tomato, Basil, and Mozzerella Sandwiches, so I guess I’m a poster-child for trying new things even when you previously …

Samantha’s Banana Scrunch Parfait

I know that I always say that I was thinking of creating a recipe before someone sends it to me, but …

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 …

Cream of Mushroom Soup

As I’ve mentioned before, my hubby is a fan of all things mushroom. Thus, when I was thinking of coming up with a meat-free soup for the cold weather, I decided that Cream of Mushroom should be first on the list! It came out well – hubby cleared his bowl. =)

So here’s a random …

Jessica’s Stuffed Peppers

Can you have too many P90x-friendly stuffed pepper recipes? I think not!
Oh, and I know this is the second reader-submitted post in a row. 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, …

Slow Cooker Chili

Well, I’ve done it! I’ve perfected my vegan slow cooker chili recipe. 🙂 Yesterday my family celebrated our annual holiday – Thanksmas! As the name implies, it is a cross between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (The name also implies that my family is extremely cheesy. I won’t argue with you there.) I was hosting, but due …

Turkey, Pesto, and Avocado Sandwich

Happy Thanksgiving (yesterday)! I hope you all had a great one. In honor of Turkey Day, I’m giving you a little sandwich recipe that I am thankful for: the Turkey, Pesto, and Avocado sandwich. Yum! You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit preoccupied with pesto of late. For me, pesto is the new …

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 …

Black Bean Burgers (and the Grumpy Vegan!)

I’ve never been much of a vegi-burger type person (or as you know, a vegi person in general), but lately I’ve been considering cutting out meat and dairy. This is a very depressing statement for me, and I’m very grumpy about it! LOL. It has nothing to do with philosophical problems with cruelty to animals …

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 …

Banana Sandwich

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, other than YUM. Oh, and be warned that this sucker is intense! You might want to save it until you have a dairy serving to spare for a glass of milk! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 whole wheat English muffin 2 Tb. peanut butter 1/2 banana …
