Baked Eggs in Portobello Mushroom Caps

I’m almost past the stage where I need to worry about back to school. I admit that after years of backpacks, crayons and stacks of forms to fill out, I’m almost ready for it. David graduated high school last year and he’s searching for full time employment. Sarah has one semester left at college and […]

Sweet Corn Salsa Recipe with Black Beans

Yesterday, I seriously considered feeding everyone cereal for dinner – that’s how hot and humid it was. I really don’t like turning on the oven when it’s this hot.

Easy Chinese Recipe: Shrimp in Coconut Milk Sauce

I love Chinese food and we occasionally splurge by going for take out to our local Chinese restaurant. The last time we splurged for the four of us, our bill came to close to $50. That made me step back and think about how much Chinese food I could make at home for the same […]

Healthy Lenten Meals – Seafood Stuffed Tomatoes

Before my focus on finding healthier meals, my favorite meal for Lent was takeout cheese pizza. I know. Definitely not one of the healthy Lenten meals I should have chosen. This year, I have more of a focus on finding healthy meals than I have in the past. While we still splurge, I try to […]
