roasted veggie tacos

I saw this recipe in Martha Stewart Living and immediately thought it sounded amazing. Roasted vegetables on a taco, why had I never thought of this before? It’s simple enough: roast veggies, slap them on a tortilla. Her recipe was for portobello and zucchini tacos and don’t they look amazing? I didn’t just stop at [...]

slow-cooker sweet potato chowder

This recipe comes from a book I’ve told you about before, the Paleo Slow Cooking cookbook. It is full of easy, healthy, paleo-friendly recipes for your crock pot. This one is genius.

The first recipe I made was the tortilla-less chicken soup and we loved it. I already had cooked chicken, so we just made this on the stove top in about [...]

Lime Chicken Melt

I bought double the ingredients for the Chicken & Avocado Salad with Lime & Cilantro I made last week. So later in the week, I re-invented the recipe into a chicken melt. It was the best sandwich I’ve had in quite a while. I’m typically not a fan of hot sandwiches (call me crazy) but for [...]

I love all things salad… chicken, egg, and yes, tuna. I even like these salads on top of regular salads.  The problem is, these salads typically include a creamy ingredient known as mayonnaise, which is not the healthiest option. And sometimes it’s fun to switch it up, so I gave this healthier version tuna salad [...]

That is how I came to find the elefantitas alegres blog. Although, I can’t recall which blog introduced me, I have been a loyal follower for quite [...]
