Roasted Butternut Squash with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Lately…. I spent/wasted more time trying to find black jeans.  This I believe is an impossible dream as EVERYTHING is now skinny, straight, slim, or God forbid super-skinny or ultra skinny – which begs me to wonder what evil bastard thought this grand scheme up?  Not only can I not get my calf into knee-highContinue reading “Roasted Butternut Squash with Cilantro Lime Dressing”

Honey Roasted Pecans

It is … Warm soft bun, salty all beef hotdog – season. Cold overpriced I’ll take two to avoid lengthy lines later beer – season. Red striped boxes  chock-full of salty butter flavored popcorn – season. Enormous plastic must collect all by season’s end souvenir cups – season. Helmet nacho season.  Enough said. Eat myContinue reading “Honey Roasted Pecans”

Roasty Toasty Chickpeas

I like foods that are crunchy.  OK, it is more like LOVE.  I LOVE crunchy foods.  Yep, that’s more like it.  Love. Anything and everything from tortilla chips to carrot sticks.  Toast to crisp apples.  It doesn’t really matter.  If it is crunchy, I will probably enjoy it.  I even like the corners of lasagna andContinue reading “Roasty Toasty Chickpeas”

Apple Walnut Chicken Salad

You know what’s scary?  Hummingbirds.  Yeah, those little birds whose wings never stop beating and they beat at like a million miles a second.   That little thing scared the bejesus outta me.  Alfred Hitchcock like. I was sitting on my patio, minding my own business, and this hummingbird does a Topgun fly by, MaverickContinue reading “Apple Walnut Chicken Salad”

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”

Chorizo and Goat Cheese Frittata

Eggs!  I love eggs.  Cooked, baked, pickled…all wonderful ways to enjoy an egg.  Last spring, about this time of the year, I spent a wonderful week in Hilton Head, SC.  The weather was wonderful, the ocean warm, and the food delicious.  Each morning we ended up at Signes Bakery to break our fast.  We lounged on theContinue reading “Chorizo and Goat Cheese Frittata”

Roasted Vegetable Panini

As of late, I have no desire to eat meat.  Its not that I am going vegetarian, but the thought of chicken, beef, or pork just does not sound appetizing.  What’s wrong with me!?!  I mean tuna doesn’t even sound great and I LOVE TUNA…seriously, I should probably have my mecury levels checked from theContinue reading “Roasted Vegetable Panini”
