  • Strawberry Rhubarb Quinoa Pudding

    After making the pork chops with rhubarb sauce, I had some leftover rhubarb.  I didn't want it to go bad, so I set out searching for another recipe I could make with it.  As usual, I turned to the source for most of my recipes:  I soon found a recipe that sounded interesting enough…

  • Pork Chops With Rhubarb Sauce

    Rhubarb.  What is it exactly?  It's a vegetable that I'd seen around, but never grew up eating.  My husband, the all time fan of different tastes, loves to eat rhubarb straight from the garden.  Not me!  The first time I bit into one it tasted like I was biting a lemon.  Yuck!  However, I'd seen a lot…

  • Quinoa Veggie Burger

    Quinoa (keen-wah).  I'd heard of it and that it was good for you, but had no idea what it was or how to use it.  After doing a little searching, I discovered a recipe on that sounded good: Quinoa Veggie Burgers.  I liked hamburgers, and the other ingredients sounded pretty good as well.  So, I…

  • Black Bean Brownies

    I love finding new recipes to try - if they sound good.  When I came across a recipe for Black Bean Brownies at Chocolate Covered, I wasn't sure what to think.  I'm used to black beans in tacos or other Mexican food.  To put them in anything else sounded odd, especially in a dessert…

  • Chocolate Chip Pancakes

    For one of my birthday gifts, the family and I went out to eat.  When perusing the menu, AJ saw a picture of chocolate chip pancakes and was quick to let me know that's what she wanted.  PJ felt the same way.  While I took time enjoying my salad, my kids downed their small chocolate…

  • Breakfast Banana Splits

    Banana splits for breakfast.  Sounds too good to be true, right?  Wrong! Now, I am not a banana fan.  I will only eat bananas if they are plain and not even browning.  To even think about combining them with ice cream never made sense to me. However, breakfast banana splits are a different story.  Just…

  • Korean Turkey Burgers

    Korean turnkey burgers.  What was I thinking?  I've never been a huge fan of Asian food, and have only had Korean food once in my life.  However, the food in the picture on Eating Well looked SO good.  What harm could it do, and how hard could it be? Actually, this was one recipe that…

  • Eating Well Waffles

    Today I faced that usual problem many moms face - what are we cooking for dinner?  It was too late to throw something in the Crock Pot.  I didn't have any tomato soup.   I was going to settle with making some pancakes from a mix I had in the pantry, then I thought I…

  • Green Smoothies – With the Kids

    If you are like me, when you first heard of a green smoothie, you probably thought "What in the world is that?"  I thought they were smoothies flavored after something green like pistachios or limes.  Nope!  Green smoothies are a great and delicious way to get some veggies and fruit into your diet.  It's a…

  • Mediterranean Chicken

    Since I started eating healthy, I've looked at different places to find new recipes to try. This past week, I seemed to be on an ethnic kick, trying non-American dishes. For Sunday dinner, we tried Mediterranean Chicken.  The recipe was from a little booklet I bought called Skinny Slow Cooker Recipe Cards from the Crock…
