These crockpot meatballs get points for ease and deliciousness. They do take a little bit of prep time, however once you’ve done the prep you can throw them in the crock pot for 4-6 hours and forget about ‘em!
Fall = football and football = parties. This weekend I went to a game-day party and of course needed to bring some sort of yummy snack to share with my friends. My boyfriend had mentioned that one of his favorite party snacks his mom used to make were ham roll-ups with cream cheese and green onions. To be honest I didn’t really understand what...
I chose to try a lighter version of chicken salad for this weeks recipe review because often I hear that my clients are eating chicken salad sandwiches for lunch. Traditionally chicken salad sandwiches are made with mayo which packs a ton of extra calories.
I chose a peach cobbler because I wanted to take advantage of the local fruit we get here in Denver. While I wouldn’t recommend that my clients make/eat peach cobbler frequently, I think it’s a lovely end of summer treat.
When I heard we were getting snow this week it was a sign to me that it was time to make pesto! I researched several recipes and they were all basically the same. The one I chose to follow came from a website called “The Secret Life of a Chef’s Wife”.
I’ve recently seen recipes for baked avocado with egg and I’ve been wanting to give them a try. How can you go wrong with avocado and eggs...possibly two of the best foods ever and both of which provide excellent health and dietary benefits.
Not your mother’s brussel sprouts! Just kidding, these actually are my mother’s brussel sprouts, and they are amazing! Brussel sprouts have taken on a new popularity in the last few years, and their reputation has improved drastically. If you still think you hate brussel sprouts, give them another shot… you’re missing out if you don’t!
I was recently on vacation in California where I visited my cousin who is an awesome cook. He made us these Jalapeno Chicken Burgers one night and we were all blown away with how delicious they were. Not only do they taste great, they’re super easy too.
I found this recipe for beet pesto a while back and combined it with quinoa and sauteed shrimp...delicious! You can also make the beet pesto and serve it with whole grain spaghetti if you prefer pasta over quinoa. Or you can really go crazy and buy quinoa pasta (best of both worlds). The pasta/quinoa and beet pesto is great on its own, however if you’re wanting to add...
My first experience with kale salad was at one of my favorite restaurants in Cherry Creek, True Food. If you haven’t checked it out yet I highly recommend it. One thing they’re known for is their kale salad which is served as a side to their sandwiches/burgers.
