Another Spaghetti Squash Creation

Mission: make healthy dinner quick with what’s on hand, which happens to be primarily ground turkey and spaghetti squash… aaaand GO! Now before some of you go all “WHAT?! There’s butter and cream in the recipe! How is that GOOD for you??” These are generally good fats that help with nutrient absorption and good fats…

Beanless Chicken Chili with Cauliflower

It’s been a long tiiiiime… since I posted anythiiiiing… Sorry about that guys. Life happened. I was busy adjusting to my new food life the last few months, trying to get better at understanding what works for a “Lean and Green” meal on my Medifast plan. I’ve also been thinking up and researching new recipes….

Healthier General Tso’s Chicken

So this recipe isn’t totally 100% on plan for me, but it’s delicious and I figured the extra little bit of non-plan items I was getting wouldn’t hurt too bad.  I really wanted some Chinese-ish for dinner (even though General Tso’s Chicken is totally an American thing… I think…), so I made a sauce that…

Gluten Free Corn Dog Bites

Corn dogs are amazing.  That’s all that really needs to be said about them.  Except that I want to add that homemade corn dogs are even better than amazing.  I’m still adjusting this recipe a little bit for the batter.  The corn meal is a little too gritty for my tastes so I’m testing doing…

Missing Recipe: Char Siu Marinade

A while back I posted about making Char Siu but I had lost the marinade recipe.  I lost it so hard that I can’t even find the original recipe online that I modified.  So I had to test again and I have a new one.  I’m testing the sauce today with pieces of pork butt, rather…

Kalua Pig

So… yeah… Kalua Pig.  Do I really need to say much more than it’s FREAKING AMAZING!?!  Imma just hop right into the recipe here, guys.  This is an easy one, and you don’t even need to build an imu in your backyard to roast that pig. Kalua Pig (in an oven) 1 5-7 pound pork…

Chili con Fway

Archaellys’ chili is hands down my favorite chili.  True statement right there.  I’m a lucky girl and for the most part this is pretty healthy AND comforting, so when I’m down Arc has been known to make a batch of chili to cheer me up.  That Arc though… Of course, there are ways to increase…

Buffalo Chicken Spaghetti Squash

Have you ever had the magical vegetable that is spaghetti squash?  I have to admit that I wasn’t super fond of it the first time I tried it and occasionally I’m not so keen on what I’ve done with it.  I’m still learning what flavors I like when using spaghetti squash.  Sometimes it ends up…

Roast Beef

Sometimes I just crave beef.  I try not to eat too much red meat, but there are times when a big piece of cow just hits the spot.  I picked up a 4 pound rump roast at the store and decided to roast it up.  Served it up with some roasted asparagus and ranch style…

Gluten Free Orange Chicken

I used to eat Chinese take out all the time for lunch when I worked at the nursery.  There was a local restaurant within walking distance that had a really good deal on lunch specials.  It got to the point that they recognized our work number and we had the lunch specials memorized by number….

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Wanna hear something mind blowing, my fellow Americans?  I’ve heard that corned beef and cabbage isn’t really a traditional Irish meal for St. Patrick’s Day.  Whaaaaaaaaaaat? Normally I would get all geeky and research this, but I’m going to go the lazy route and simply say that corned beef and cabbage is a tradition in…
