Spinach and Feta Quesadillas

Don’t you love being pleasantly surprised? Not shocked.  No surprise party heart attack.  No racing heart or sweaty palms.  Just pleasantly surprised. Monday was a day chock full of pleasant surprises. First off, it was Monday.  Sometimes Mondays are rough.  Sometimes Mondays are straight out ugly…from the sound of the alarm at way-too-early o’clock to theContinue reading “Spinach and Feta Quesadillas”

Cheesy Corn Muffins

OK…wanna know a secret about me?  Just between you and me…are you ready for this? I don’t like the taste of butter.  It’s true.  I never have.  I never will.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing stuff when it is combined with sugar and flour and baked in a 350 degree oven…I wouldn’t bake withContinue reading “Cheesy Corn Muffins”

Baked Breakfast Scramble

Is it weird that I think about food when I am exercising?  What do I need at the grocery, or whats/when is my next meal going to be, or am I working out hard enough to eat a snack or should I make cupcakes or brownies today?  Something along those lines…  What do you think of when youContinue reading “Baked Breakfast Scramble”

Mushroom and Onion Quesadillas…

Is it weird that I can watch Trauma:Life in the ER on the Discovery Channel while stuffing my face  daintily eating my dinner/breakfast?  The show is seriously addicting and for some reason it makes me giggle – I know, I know the situations are horrific, however the hospital staffs are great.  The other day a dude cameContinue reading “Mushroom and Onion Quesadillas…”

Roasted Beet and Feta Quinoa

This morning I was quite productive.  So productive that I was worried/scared that I might want to fold and put away laundry once I got everything else done.  Can I just say that I am relieved that I ran out of steam after lunch?!?  Those of you that have shared an abode with me are none too surprised.  IContinue reading “Roasted Beet and Feta Quinoa”

Parmesan Zucchini

I found these little gems at Trader Joe’s the other day.  Aren’t they just the cutest things?  How come the baby version of anything becomes cuter?  I mean baby clothes and shoes, adorable!  Well heck,  babies are much cutier than their adult counterparts (human and animal…puppies!)  OK back to vegetables.  I love zucchini.  It makes a quickContinue reading “Parmesan Zucchini”

Steak Salad (my first)

  So after nearly two weeks of cookies, muffins, and cheesecakes…I have regained my senses (a reaction to the fright of the looming swimsuit season…) and returned to the perimeter of the grocery .  I hope the baking isle doesn’t feel neglected, I’ll be back soon!  Spring/soon to be summer has finally arrived!  Wahoo!  This is the first fullContinue reading “Steak Salad (my first)”
