What’s Cookin


August 22, 2016

I have totally jumped on the bandwagon for any traditional carbohydrate in vegetable form!!! It started with spaghetti squash, transitioned to cauliflower and now I’m in the world of zucchini!!!! Thanks to the invention of Pinterest, I can easily research types of foods that interest me. I landed on this one… I’m usually opposed to anything cream-ish. I automatically think […]

Picnic Time!!

July 7, 2016

We’ve had umpteen opportunities lately to picnic. It’s hard to think of things that kids like, that are low-fat and easy to make. It’s even harder to find things with protein. That’s why I felt the urge to share my recent best “bring along for picnics” recipe.   Print Chicken Enchilada Rollups Author: The Girl Who Ate Everything (http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2015/08/chicken-enchilada-roll-ups.html) Recipe type: Entree […]

Carbs are the devil!!!

May 5, 2016

Somewhere along the way, I have been conditioned into thinking carbs are the devil. Even worse – if I’m going to go down the road of enjoying carbs, I better not eat them at night!  And although I don’t religiously observe this message, I had a hearty dose of mac and cheese the other night even though I only had […]

Disclaimer: I don’t follow all the intricacies of Passover. I pretty much just avoid bread and bread-style products. I don’t clean out my kitchen or do anything fancy. It is very important to me that my children have some basic identity with our family customs. It’s less about being dogmatic about our religion and more about passing on the rituals […]

Passover the spinach!!!!

April 20, 2016

Guest to the Seder: What can I bring to your Passover Seder? Host: How about a vegetable dish? Guest to the Seder: OK, great! (WTF?!?!?) I have the solution to all your problems! This amazing vegetable side dish has become a fan favorite at our Seders. It’s so good that every year I say that I shouldn’t JUST make it […]

Love me some buffalo

April 8, 2016

Adam and I enjoy anything buffalo related…except maybe the animal.  I was intrigued by this easy, healthy version.  Anyone ever try Skinnytaste’s Buffalo Cauliflower??  Amazing!!  (Click here for that)  I found a version of that at the store.  I have yet to try though.. Note:  Although my kids are generally good eaters, I would not go so far as to […]

St. Patty’s Day Extravaganza!!!

March 17, 2016

St. Patty’s Day has always been a thing for me.  Not usually a “daughter’s in a play, family dinner” kinda thing but that’s what it has become.  I have many fond memories of tearing up Chicago in honor of St. Patrick’s Day (even though I’m not quite sure who this Saint is or why I’m celebrating him).  Any excuse for […]

Hola Martes!!!

March 3, 2016

In some cultures, it’s a compliment to burp after the meal, right?  What’s the translation for gagging and spitting out your chewed up chicken?  Don’t make it again?  With yesterday’s blog about drama, I should be highlighting the fact that my daughter brings drama to just about everything.  I made an easy, low-fat option for our favorite Taco Tuesday.  2 […]

Pizza + Chicken = what could be bad???

February 16, 2016

In efforts to be mom of the year (or accepting that I’ll never be but trying to get some wins where I can), I try to really do up holidays. One of which being Valentine’s Day. I get my kids a ton of those annoying little presents they love, wrap them up in color coded (based on child) wrapping paper […]

Chinese Food ala Mommy

February 8, 2016

I spiralize, I squash, I mash and I roast with the best of them. I love vegetables and I love coming up with unique ways of adding them into our lives. Spaghetti squash is on regular rotation in this house. I have tried several different ways of using cauliflower, including “bread sticks” and “pizza crust.” This one is by far […]
