A Healthy Snack: {Quinoa Pizza Bites}

I hope you all had a fabulous long Thanksgiving weekend -- filled with friends, family, delicious food, and even a little holiday shopping! Our food was over-the-top delicious, especially the smoked turkey. Dear Hubby said it was the best turkey he'd ever eaten -- in 30+ years! Babycakes helped me a lot with the turkey...stirring the brine in a big bucket, cleaning the turkey, removing the neck, brushing on the butter, etc... She thought everything was ...

Chickpea Burger Giveaway & Greek Mashed Cauliflower

Can I just start out with the word YUMMOLA?!?! This is exactly how I felt about this entire meal.  Awhile back, I was contacted by MorningStar Farms to see if I'd be interested in trying/reviewing their new Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers.

Healthy Substitutions + {Veggie Fried Quinoa}

I am now in the habit of making healthy substitutions for my family. If I can keep a similar taste but include better-for-us ingredients, then I'm all in!! Some recent examples include my healthy key lime pie, my double-decker tacos, and my Zuppa Toscana. And with my father-in-law's recent heart attack, Dear Hubby has been even more willing to try new things in the name of better health.  I haven't changed everything all at once, but am slowing making over some of our favorite dishes. ...
