Poblano Joes is a fresh, clean-eating twist on the all-time classic favorite, Sloppy Joes! Use chiles from the garden for a special treat. 0

Poblano Joes ★ Clean-Eating Version of the Sloppy

I’ve been making a Biggest Loser recipe called Sexy Joes for a few years now. It’s delicious and lower on calories—mainly because it uses ground chicken in place of ground beef. It calls for chile sauce, though. And I can’t seem to find a decently-priced bottle of chile sauce that embodies my clean-eating ideals (i.e. isn’t loaded with high fructose corn syrup). I used ground beef in my Poblano Joes recipe to make it closer to the classic sloppy joes sandwich that everyone loves. However, you could easily switch the beef out for ground chicken. Then let’s call it Sexy...

Quick Recipes for Serving Two Created for Grace Church

I recently created a series of recipes for serving two to be posted on my church’s blog. If you ever attend a service at Grace Church, you may hear about the Way of Discipleship. It is an intentional, time-bound relationship focused on learning and embracing 11 practices essential to following Jesus Christ. It’s one person walking with another on their journey of learning about these essential practices. Two people. Sometimes, these two people like to eat when they meet together. You’ll find plenty of examples of sharing meals and breaking bread in the Bible. Eating together is a wonderful way to...

Quick Parmesan Garlic Toasted Flatbread is a flavorful accompaniment for meals or a great addition to a spread of small plates—and is done in 5 minutes! 0

Quick Parmesan Garlic Toasted Flatbread

Quick is a kitchen virtue, especially when you have life conditions such as children or a full time job. Recipes like Quick Parmesan Garlic Toasted Flatbread are indeed virtuous. We love to have toasted garlic bread with meals like spaghetti or lasagna. Until I started using MealBoard and added the garlic bread as an ingredient in my recipe file, I would constantly forget to pick up the garlic bread. Seriously, like every time. I had to develop a last-minute method to remedy my mistake, so I would put together a garlicky butter spread that I’d put on slices of sandwich bread...

The Campari Mojito is a twist on this classic refreshing summer cocktail. We switched out the lime juice for a colorful grapefruit flavored aperitif. 0

Campari Mojito Keeps You From Melting to the Pavement

I’ve been waiting for the high heat of the summer to share my recipe for the Campari Mojito. This is a little golden nugget of a cocktail that my sister-in-law and I mixed up a few years back. But let me start with the backstory. I had never tried Campari. As I read through my copy of Complete Bartender in search of fun new cocktails, I came across several that called for Campari. The descriptions out there of this bitter aperitif are a little fuzzy, but I found one that described the flavor as blood orange or grapefruit. And… I was...

Make Marinated Greek Salad Skewers for a fresh and delicious small plate featuring summer vegetables and tasty feta cheese. With made-from-scratch dressing, this appetizer pleases even the most refined palate. 0

Marinated Greek Salad Skewers for Small Plates

I’m so into small plates right now. Although salads could technically be called small plates and we eat them like appetizers, I dig the idea of condensing a salad down to a few bites—particularly for a cocktail party or soirée. I love Greek salads, so I started there. Hence, we have Marinated Greek Salad Skewers. I’ve scouted out several wonderful small plates made with meats and cheeses, even bread. Meaty appetizers present plentifully in blogland. I keep my eye out for tasty small plates featuring vegetables, but they can elude even the most savvy recipe researcher. Summer creates the best opportunity...

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System is low in fat and high in protein thanks to Jovial Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni pasta. 0

Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System

My new recipe, Chicken Parm Pasta Bake for the Ninja Cooking System, is a little special. Not just because it’s delicious and it’s another recipe for the 3-in-1. It’s special because it’s made with a new kind of pasta that I’m really excited about. I made this chicken parm dish using Jovial 100% Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Rigatoni. I’m excited about this pasta is because it’s made using a true ancient grain. Einkorn wheat is still the grain nature always intended. It hasn’t been hybridized to contain more gluten for fluffy baked goods. There’s a picture right on the box showing the size of...

This recipe for Chipotle Chicken Tacos from Dish-y.com is a spicy, tasty twist on a Tex Mex favorite. Add this quick and healthy dish to your lineup. 0

Chipotle Chicken Tacos

It all started when I used up the last of my stash of homemade taco seasoning. Although it’s pretty easy to throw together, I had some chipotle peppers on hand that I needed to use up and I thought I’d try something a little different. This is how the recipe for Chipotle Chicken Tacos was born. Taking the lead from a go-to Biggest Loser recipe for “Sexy Joes,” I decided to switch out the typical ground beef for ground chicken for a lower fat version of the taco. And since I wanted to incorporate more healthfu ingredients in my new Chipotle...

Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon from Dish-y.com is a quick and easy seafood main dish that's perfect when cooking for two. Sweet, spicy and delicious! 0

Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon

The hubs and I try to incorporate fish (or seafood) at least once per week. I love cooking fish because it’s usually easy to prepare and cooks up quick. Salmon is a frequent choice because we love it and the healthy omega-3’s for the nutritional value. My go-to seasoning for easy salmon is dill and paprika, but it was time for something different. That’s why I developed this recipe for Coconut Chile Lime Crusted Salmon. The combination of flavors on this crusted salmon recipe would definitely be categorized as Asian fusion. These are some of my favorite tastes. Coconut and...

These quick and easy chicken fajita lettuce wraps are full of flavor, high on nutrition and protein, and perfect for low carb meal plans. 0

Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps

For the better part of the last month, I’ve been following a fairly low carb meal plan as part of the Metabolic Aftershock exercise program (more on that to come). Since I’ve not really ever followed a low carb diet much, I’ve been trying to think up creative recipes and ways to do low carb. I’ve always loved the gingery chicken lettuce wraps that are common in Asian restaurants, but wanted to try something a little different. Chicken Fajita Lettuce Wraps is the direction I went, and it’s definitely a keeper recipe! We love doing “Taco Tuesday” (even if it’s...
