Fish Filet Sandwich

If you ever had a fish filet sandwich, especially from places like mcdonalds, you know they can be good. But you sometimes feel gross after – cause they tend to be greasy and not very healthy.  I made a better version tonight for dinner. I have a simple breaded filet that I baked in the…

Roasted Red Peppers

I’ve wanted to make these for a while but I think I was too scared to try. I’m happy I did it though. And they’re super easy too. If you’ve never roasted peppers before, they’re super easy. You just throw some peppers (whole, with seeds and all) on the grill and let them cook. You…

Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

This is one of the simplest things ever. It’s really not much more than what the title says. It was just toast + avocado + sweet potato + sriracha. That’s it. Such a good meal – breakfast or lunch. It’s creamy and crunchy and sweet and just delicious. I know it might seem like a…

Skinny Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies but they usually have so much butter and sugar. I found this recipe and I thought it was much better than most recipes out there.  I probably would’ve put a little less honey cause it was a touch too sweet. I like that it uses whole wheat flour and…

Couscous with Bean Salad and Sweet Potatoes

I may have said this before, but I love meals that are all in one bowl and easy to eat. Tonight’s dinner was just that. I have 3 components here which are pretty easy to see cause I made sure they were all separated in my bowl. The bean salad has a few things… black…

Mixed Salad

I really didn’t know what to call this salad. I used the word mixed because it turned out to be a mix of many different things.  I got iceberg lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, bell pepper, dried cranberries, sliced olives, chickpeas and avocado. The only dressing I put was a little walnut oil, red wine vinegar, salt…

Yogurt Bark

I wanted a sweet dessert tonight so I made some yogurt bark. It’s incredibly easy but you need a little patience because it takes some time to freeze up. You can put whatever you like and make it your own. I have blueberry yogurt (spread a kinda thin layer on parchment paper) then place your…

Bean Salad and Veggie Balls

I’ve had both of these things before, but this time it was a little different. Plus I added some avocado cause I’m a little obsessed. I really just love bean salad. This one had black beans, red bell pepper, fresh corn, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, red wine vinegar, salt, sriracha and sugar. The veggie balls,…

Early Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Making mexican food the day before Cinco de mayo was a great way to show my rebellious side. I was originally going to make chili cheese fries but it ended up just being a bowl of chili with some fries on the side. Now that I think about it, it ended up being pretty much…

Chicken Stirfry

I made dinner with like 10 ingredients. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.  So from the title, you know I made a stirfry. It had leftover rotisserie chicken, peppers, yellow and green onion, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha, honey and sesame oil. I put all that on top of some egg noodles. And sesame…

Gourmet Pizza

I know I have a few pizza posts already, but this is my first one with homemade dough! I got the recipe from the back of the yeast packet and it turned out pretty well. As you can see, there are quite a few toppings here. I got cheese (obviously), pizza sauce, roasted veggies (zucchini,…
