National Pancake Day

Yum! Today is National Pancake Day! Pancakes are one of my absolute favorite foods! It was one of the first things I learned to make on my own, and remains one of those comfort foods that can take me back to a time when life was much less complicated. But when I started on this road to health, that was one of many unhealthy habits I gave up. I used to have pancakes at least a few times per month, sometimes having it for breakfast,…Continue Reading “National Pancake Day”

Lemon Feta Green Beans

  Nothing says summer to me like lemon and green beans! Green beans are one of my favorite veggies, and I like just about anything that has lemon in it!

I call this “Lemon Feta Green Beans”!   Ingredients: 1 lb. green beans 1/8 C extra…Continue Reading “Lemon Feta Green Beans”

Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes

  While Memorial Day is about much, much more than family barbeques and get togethers (and I could never put into words how grateful I am for the sacrifices of those who have given their lives for our country, and their families), it is unofficially considered the kickoff to grilling, summer, beach trips and all things outdoorsy.   Grilling is my favorite way to prepare food. Something about the smoky flavor, combined with the fact that it can be an easy, healthy option, just makes…Continue Reading “Top 5 Grilled Veggies Recipes”

Gamma’s Green Bean Casserole

  Ever since I was little, my favorite dish at Thanksgiving has been green bean casserole. As I grew up, I began to realize that the reason this was my favorite dish was because of the way it was prepared. With Gamma’s love, and a lot of CHEESE! The first time I noticed the recipe for this casserole on the side of a can of green beans, and it did not include cheese at all, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I had no idea that most…Continue Reading “Gamma’s Green Bean Casserole”
