Healthy Snack: Protein Bites

by Angela on February 17, 2019

I’m always looking for simple snacks that are easy to grab and go, tastes good, but are still good for you. This recipe was passed on to me from my friend, Janet, who is a Shaklee rep, but I have modified it to work for my family. Because my oldest son has nut allergies (peanuts […]


Meat Free Monday: Quinoa Burgers/Patties

by Angela on February 27, 2012

Last month I shared a similar recipe, Cheesy Quinoa Cakes with Roasted Garlic Aioli Sauce.   And while I liked that one a lot, I looooove this one.  I do think the name is misleading…quinoa burger.  I guess if you made them nice and thick and put them in a bun, I’d call them a burger.  […]


Fish Fridays: Tilapia

by Angela on December 18, 2011

TGIFF…Thank Goodness It’s Fish Friday!  Today I want to share a recipe I use often for tilapia.  I buy tilapia quite a bit because I can get it from Costco (anyone else notice how much I mention that I shop at Costco??) and it is pretty inexpensive when it comes to fish.  If you aren’t much […]

For today’s meat free recipe, I found another recipe that is part of the Whole Living 28-Day Challenge that I wanted to try!  And if you are a mushroom lover like I am, this recipe is for you.  If you’re not, well, you may want to pass, or cut down on the amount of mushrooms […]

Meat Free Monday: Hot Corn Dip

by Angela on December 4, 2011

As promised in my Girlfriends are Good for the Soul article, today I bring you the Hot Corn Dip recipe my friend made for our Mexican Fiesta.  We ate this with Tostitos tortilla chips and the Sweet Potato Enchiladas I made.  The dip was so good, and I really think what made the dish was the Trader […]

It wouldn’t surprise me if many people are reluctant about today’s recipe merely because they don’t know what quinoa is or how to pronounce it.  But I am here to encourage you to read on about this highly nutritious superfood, pronounced KEEN-WA.  When I saw that this recipe was listed as a week 1 meal […]

Meat Free Monday: Easter Egg Leftovers

by Angela on April 25, 2011

If your family is anything like ours, you hard boiled a dozen or so eggs so the kids could dye them (and the moms can stress about the mess!) and the Easter Bunny could hide them.   But now we’re in a predicament like we are with turkey after Thanksgiving…what to do with all the leftovers.  […]


Meat Free Monday: Rosemary Ranch Kabobs

by Angela on April 18, 2011

Ah spring!  Birds are chirping, the weather is starting to warm up, flowers are starting to bloom, the kids have spring fever and are driving me nuts.  Oh killjoy, sorry.  Anyhow, the hubby fired up the grill yesterday and it reminded me of another reason I love warmer weather and especially summer.  I LOVE cooking […]


I love this tilapia recipe since it’s quick, easy and there is almost no clean-up.  (YEAH).  Not to mention it tastes good.  If you aren’t much of a fish person because you don’t like that “fishy” flavor, tilapia is a great fish to try because it has a very mild, buttery flavor.  Some other interesting tilapia […]


This is one of my favorite fish recipes.  My dad fixed this recipe for our family a few summers back and it’s been one of our regular menu items ever since.  It takes about 20 minutes from fridge to plate to make .  The chile pepper sauce is a dipping sauce so can be omitted […]
