Chicken, Brown Rice & Broccoli Lettuce Cups {Ninja Cooking System}

Sometimes Cooper surprises me. The boy hated mac & cheese until he turned five and he won’t eat mashed potatoes to save his life. But when we put these Chicken, Brown Rice & Broccoli Lettuce Cups in front of him for dinner, he ate three of them. Could be that we told him to eat them like a taco (one of his favorite foods). IDK. The fact that Cooper likes these is great news to me, since they are loaded with lean protein, veggies, and whole grain brown rice. He didn’t even complain about the broccoli! Funny story about Cooper. If he’s served...

Roasted Medieval Dinner ♛ {Whole30 Compliant}

I’m looking at the picture of my Whole30 compliant Roasted Medieval Dinner, and I just realized that I put a glass of wine in the setting. Oh well! That’s because I’ve been making this meal long before I knew what Whole30 even was. I guess I get bonus points for developing Whole30 recipes with my eyes closed, right? I’ve actually been making this meal since 2013. It was shortly after I returned from a business trip to Orlando that I became obsessed with replicating the meal I had at one of those silly Medieval Times dinner shows. I’d never been...

5 Well-Worth-It Ways to Challenge Yourself in the Kitchen

Once you’ve gotten a good start with cooking, the best way to continue to develop your culinary skills is to regularly challenge yourself in the kitchen. Trying new things opens up your experiences—before you know it, things that were once a challenge become second nature. If you’ve ever tried gluten-free cooking, you know very well what a kitchen challenge is! But I’d only recommend a kitchen challenge like gluten-free cooking if you have identified a real need for it, such as a food sensitivity or other health issue.

Sausage and Pepper Fried Rice Recipe

Fried rice is one of my favorite comfort foods. It may be an unconventional idea of a comfort food, but it totally gives me that same satisfaction. It’s so easy to throw together, especially when you have leftover rice to use up. For a new take on yummy fried rice, I developed this Sausage and Pepper Fried Rice recipe. Sausages and peppers are typically eaten on a bun, but it was very easy to incorporate these flavors in a fried rice. I like cooking with brown rice because it’s a whole food and so nutritious. This fried rice recipe is...

Dry Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix

Make your own dry ranch dressing seasoning mix. Ranch dressing is delicious. I have always loved it. But ranch dressing is a common offender on the high-calorie suspect list, and it is often one of the first “favorites” to get dropped in calorie cutting sprees. I’m here to tell you that it’s possible to take back your favorite by making your own dry ranch dressing seasoning mix. I make my own dressings because I love the fresh taste of them. For me, it’s essential to have an authentic ranch dressing for salads, chicken wings, veggie platters, and the like. The...

Creating Your Own Compound Butters

Creating Your Own Compound Butters I love shopping at Whole Foods for their great, organic meats and veggies. I’ve been known to peruse the cheeses while there, as well. The last time I went I bought a couple of different compound butters purely out of convenience. I’m all about making things easy on myself while entertaining if I can. Plus, it was an impulse buy. I’m sure we’ve all been there, done that! I purchased a bleu cheese butter and a roasted garlic butter. Well, as I’m sure has happened to everyone else they sat in my fridge until they...
