Things have been so crazy lately that sometimes I don’t even have time to eat dinner, let alone cook. It’s always good to have an arsenal of recipes under your belt when your running short on time. When I have a busy week coming up I reach into my quick and easy recipe box for a few regulars that I know will not disappoint. So here are 4 of my all time favorite meals that make their way to my table multiple times a month. Give them a try!!

*Disclaimer: Yes…I am partial to Cooking Light. They are quick, easy, and HEALTHY!!! So the majority of my recipes come from them. Hit me up Cooking Light!! 🙂 Continue reading

Pierogies with Bacon, Sautéed Onion, and Sour Cream

Things just never seem to slow down sometimes. So when I don’t have a lot of time to cook I turn to quick and delicious meals from my favorite magazine, Cooking Light. It’s really easy to grab something quick and fattening when you’re in a hurry, and healthy is always first on my mind.

I first heard of Pierogies from last month’s Martha Stewart magazine. They looked amazing and next time I have an afternoon set aside for culinary experimentation I will try some of her homemade recipes. In the meantime, for us busy folks, try this quick and easy Pierogie recipe. I have to say…it’s pretty awesome. The husband was quite pleased as well! Continue reading

Well, my heavy appetite has yet to subside and the freezing cold weather that Dallas has been seeing has yet to pull me out of hibernation mode.

Not only do they offer great cooking techniques but the food is healthy and truly delicious.

Since we are in the new year I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my favorite comfort food but with a healthy twist. No, I did not make a health induced resolution this year, but after the over indulgence that was Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is time to get back on track.
