Grapefruit Yogurt Cake

Share

This recipe comes from a bookmark that I’ve had kicking around for a while. When I received a box of grapefruit as a gift, and we weren’t eating them fast enough (although they keep well for a while in the refrigerator), I knew it was time to try this recipe.

One of my sons loved this […]

Quick Poached Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce

Share

 

This was last night’s dinner.  My husband loved it, and he’s not a huge salmon fan. The sauce did it for him. It’s a very tangy, mustardy sauce and it turned him into a salmon-fan last night. I found him putting the sauce on his broccoli too. I loved the poached salmon, but the sauce […]

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Share

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Share

I made these muffins for breakfast recently when we had a house full of guests. They disappeared in no time. Who can turn down a fresh, warm, lemon muffin other than one of my sons? I love anything lemon, and these muffins are no exception. The original recipe calls for poppy seeds, but I knew […]

Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Share

This is one of the quick recipes that I made the other day when my parents dropped by. About a month ago, we went to a barbecue to celebrate my nephew’s graduation from 8th grade, and my sister grilled some yogurt-marinated chicken that I couldn’t get enough of. It was so moist and flavorful. I […]

It takes mere minutes to throw together if you have the ingredients on hand, and it’s really healthy. I asked one of my sons to try it, and […]

Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

Because school just started for the boys, I thought I’d make them a nice healthy breakfast. I learned about Baked Oatmeal with Fruit from a friend who pinned the recipe to her Pintrest board. I adore oatmeal and I love the idea of baking it so you can make it in advance. I actually made […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt

If you are a fan of raw cookie dough, this is for you. If you don’t like raw cookie dough, you can stop reading right here. I guarantee you’ll hate this. Aunt Sylvia did.

I think I’ve mentioned before that my old roommate Lisa and I used to buy rolls of cookie dough, put it in […]

Tzatziki Potato Salad

Share

I love a good potato salad in the summer. I also love trying new recipes, so this tzatziki potato salad was the perfect combination.

Tzatziki is a Greek/Turkish sauce that’s made from strained yogurt (aka Greek yogurt) and served as an accompaniment to something else or with bread. It’s also served as a sauce with gyros […]

Chocolate Yogurt Snack Cakes

I’ve had my eye on this recipe for a while and finally decided to try it. I thought the snack cakes would be a nice treat for the boys one afternoon after school. Instead of making 12 muffin-sized snack cakes, I decided to make 24 mini-muffin size cakes. I […]
