Lighter Parmesan Tilapia

I don’t know how everyone else did over the long weekend… But I MAY have cheated on my diet just a little bit. Oh come on… A few (three 😏) hot dogs, fried fish, pizza, chips, cake… That’s not THAT bad 🙈. And we don’t have to talk about any beer, wine, or cocktails here.Continue reading “Lighter Parmesan Tilapia”

Balsamic Beet & Arugula Salad

I L.O.V.E. love beets! And if you’ve never had fresh beets, you really must try this! They are a little extra prep work, but well with it. This is such a great salad… the earthy beets, walnuts, and creamy goat cheese combined make it hearty too- you could definitely eat a big plate as aContinue reading “Balsamic Beet & Arugula Salad”

Canning Tomaties

I’ve been wanting to watch and learn how to can tomatoes from Nan for a while now. A few weeks back someone brought her a bucket of tomatoes, so she called me and I got to come up and take lots of pictures, notes and videos! 🙂 Please don’t be intimidated by the idea of canning…Continue reading “Canning Tomaties”

Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Fettuccini Alfredo

You can make this recipe with jarred roasted red peppers, but if you’ve never roasted your own I highly recommend just giving it a try. It’s SO easy and the kitchen smells amazing while it’s in the oven! Sometimes I will roast a few at a time, and jar them for using later. Just addContinue reading “Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Fettuccini Alfredo”

Cucumber, Avocado, & Tomato Salad

I can’t take credit for this recipe, however it was too good not to share! I absolutely love avocados, and I love how fresh and healthy this salad is!

Orange Ginger Tilapia

I’ve said it before, you can NEVER have enough ways to prepare tilapia… It’s such a versatile fish. This variation is also mediumly healthy (with the exception of a little bit of butter 🤐), but it’s still better than fried versions!  It uses all fresh ingredients, but it’s still fairly simple to make and superContinue reading “Orange Ginger Tilapia”

Honey Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette 

I came up with this recipe per my Aunt Meg’s request for a good balsamic vinaigrette recipe. And me being well, me, couldn’t just make a plain old dressing… I wanted to make something original. This dressing combines three of my absolute favorite flavors – balsamic, lemons, and honey, and is so simple to makeContinue reading “Honey Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette “
