Roasted Banana Paletas

Roasted Banana Paletas made with milk, a little cream….and a spot of rum.   I slightly adapted this recipe from my “Paletas” cookbook by Fany Gerson, and I’ll make these babies again and again this summer.  They’re really good!  The recipe calls for cream, but next time I’m going to sub out the cream and use coconut milk instead.   I also think a swirl of melted dark chocolate in the mix might not be a bad idea either.

macadamia nut macaroons

Recipes don’t come much more simple than this one.  This Macadamia Nut Macaroon recipe only calls for 4 simple ingredients (macadamia nuts,  honey, toasted coconut and a pinch of sea salt) and they come together in about 10 minutes.  If you like macadamia nuts – you’ll love these Macadamia Nut Macaroons!  View full post »

green smoothie

If you don’t own a NutriBullet yet…..you might want to consider making an investment.   Kyle bought one several months ago and he made me some of the best smoothies ever – which totally got me hooked.  I went out and bought one and I told my friend Cathe – and she went out and bought two.  One for back-up.  It’s been a great tool for her to use to sneak some greens into her twins diet.    They’re easy to use – easy to clean – and because of that – I make smoothies pretty much every day.    This Pineapple Crush with Mixed Greens (aka Green Smoothie) was one of the first smoothies that Kyle made for me and it’s still my favorite.  View full post »

chicken marsala recipe

Chicken Marsala used to be my all-time favorite chicken dish.  I used to order it most of the time when I’d dine at an Italian restaurant.  That all changed the day I met Chicken Piccata for the very first time.   Lemons in…whatever…will win with me every time.  Kyle on the other hand – prefers this Chicken Marsala over Chicken Piccata.

This easy Chicken Marsala recipe is so rich and flavorful and the best part is it comes together in no time.  Hardly any effort is required for getting this dish set on the table. View full post »

Greek Turkey Burger

These Greek Turkey Burgers make for a nice change of pace from your typical everyday burger.  They’re nice and light and on the healthier side of things.   The meat patties are tastefully seasoned wit a little  dill and oregano.  You could also add some Feta to these burgers….  I didn’t have any  but I think a little Feta would work well here (even though I’m not wildly huge on Feta).   View full post »
