Cheesy Chicken Stroganoff Bake

While I typically make simple, clean dinners, with the loom of fall on us (HA! It’s still 90 degrees in the valley of LA) a comforting baked pasta dish sounded appropriate. I’ve been eyeing this recipe on Kraft.com for quite some time, wanting to make a few adjustments to bulk it up and bring down…

Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf Minis

So admission: this recipe was totally supposed to be a burger, but the meat mixture was too thin to hold as a burger, so I got creative and divided it up into a muffin tin. Meatloaf minis! Ta-da! These are full of buffalo flavor, with none of the fat from being fried. Yes, these are…

Bruschetta Chicken

Hi! So sorry I have been a little MIA lately. I kept telling myself I needed to write this post as I made and photographed it weeks ago, but I either was too busy, or too lazy to do it! Normally I spend my Saturday mornings/afternoons working on my blog, but it’s been a couple…

Loaded Quinoa Stir-Fry

I am big on getting a big serving size for a small amount of calories. Perhaps I even eat too many massive bowls of just lettuce with vinegar. (I know that sounds weird, but I don’t eat it because I want to lose weight or anything, I eat it because I literally crave it!) Anyway,…

Waffle Sandwich

Who says you have to be a child and/or take in a zillion calories to have a waffle sandwich? This slimmed-down sandwich is all kinds of good! At less than 250 calories, this breakfast (or lunch or dinner!) meal is packed with whole grains, spinach, and protein. Yay! I will take you back a couple…

Chicken Caesar Pita

So I used to work at Chili’s back in high school and jr. college and I had a weakness for their Chicken Caesar Pita. It was an item I would only get on a special occasion because it was like 600 calories and it came with fries. But it was soo good. The warm pita…

Cheesy Mushroom Chicken

Recently I have been trying to eat cleaner — no more Splenda and limiting processed foods. I started doing this about a month ago and I feel a lot better. I just have more energy and my stomach is flatter. I recently have been posting my meals on my Instagram, mostly because it holds me…

Broiled Parmesan Herb Tilapia

Need a super-fast, but seems-really-fancy dinner? This recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes — start to finish! It can be a weeknight meal, or even pass for a meal to make for guests. I found this recipe in a Shape magazine¬†years ago, and still use it as a great, low-carb, fall back…

My first half marathon!

I am officially a half marathon runner! And I am officially addicted. I never knew I would enjoy the feeling of running a race with other dedicated athletes as much as I did. So much in fact I cannot wait to register for my next race. If anyone has a favorite race or event I…

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes

Hii! Sorry I have been off the radar for a little bit. But did you notice the new design of my blog?? (Ok, not sure you could miss it.) What do you think? I like it so far! More improvements to come. And of course, more posts and recipes. I also am going to start…
