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 …

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 …

BBQ Tofu and “Baked” Beans

By now you are all aware of my obsession with BBQ sauce. Bullseye Original is a staple in my household…I have a habit of putting it on everything – chicken, meatloaf, quesadillas…even things that just shouldn’t have BBQ sauce on them. lol. Well, here I go again. I’ve heard rumor that, BORG-like, tofu just absorbs …

French Toast

Have you ever wondered why french toast has gotten such a bad rap? It’s just bread, eggs, and milk! The key to this and other similar breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.) is what you drizzle over them. If you make them with whole wheat bread and egg whites, and keep it to honey or pure …

Schizophrenic Kielbasa and Rosemary Potatoes

I’ll be the first to tell you that the directions for cooking this dish are a little…schizophrenic. All because I was hungry and impatient! lol. The story behind it is that I found these cute baby red potatoes, and wanted to cook them with my favorite standby, turkey kielbasa. I started out …

Cucumber and Citrus Infused Water

I still remember the most relaxing day I’ve ever experienced. It was my birthday, and my hubby gave me a trip to a day-spa. I went with my friend, and all day we sat in the hot tub, periodically leaving it for massages and facials. I have never experienced a more luxurious day, before or …

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 …

Honeyed Cheerios

I was lurking on a thread on the Beachbody message boards the other day, and a P90xer was bemoaning the loss of her favorite snack – Honey Nut Cheerios. After one glance at the ingredients in Honey Nut Cheerios, it is clear that they are nowhere near as healthy as their plain counterparts …

BBQ Peas

OK, my hubby thinks that I’ve gone a bit too far here in my BBQ sauce obsession. He said it tasted odd with peas. (However, he’s never been known to like peas in any form.) I liked it – I’d drown my vegis in BBQ sauce any day of the week …

This is an easy, flavorful way to prepare broccoli. Neither my hubby nor I are fans of vegis, overall, but when you’re trying to pack in P90x vegetable servings, they’re a must! lol. This steamed broccoli recipe we don’t mind too much. (Such high praise, I know! lol) Sometimes he takes …
