Crock Pot Chicken Curry

April 28, 2014

Before I start, I will apologize for the long break I took. Life got in the way and we were dealing with a lot of stuff, and vacation and sicknesses! I am going to try to get back on track for weekly Monday postings. I never intended to be gone so long, and feel awful…

Pepper Steak

February 17, 2014

This is going to be a crowd pleaser. Great for gatherings because it makes a ton. Still simple and WLS friendly. Made the mistake of making this as a family dinner and even after we ate leftovers for days, we still ended up tossing some, it made so much! I found the original recipe here,…

Yet Another Soup

January 27, 2014

Ok, so my husband found a recipe online, the basics sounded good, but I changed it up a bit. Less noodles, and more meat mostly. Otherwise it was the same. I thought it was going to be too plain, but it turned out excellent, and even my insanely picky son ate it ALL. Except the…

Cheesy Quinoa

January 20, 2014

I have been looking for more “comfort food” type things, which is why I switched up classic Mac and Cheese with Cauliflower “mac” and cheese. And now, stove top mac and cheese as Cheesy Quinoa. This one is insanely simple. I am not going to do nutrition stats for this one though-the quinoa has a…

Protein Mug Cake

January 13, 2014

So, a friend sent me this link. I had been seeing mug cakes for awhile on Facebook and Pinterest. Always wanted to try one, but the stats were always so bad for you. So a PROTEIN mug cake sounded awesome! And it was pretty darn good. A bit dense, a little dry, but the flavor…

“Mac” and Cheese

December 30, 2013

So, I got curious. I keep making substitutions of cauliflower for potatoes. I wondered if it could work instead of the pasta in baked mac and cheese. This recipe is not perfect by any means, but it was fun, still tasted pretty darn good, and isn’t horrible for you. I do think I need to…

Orange Chicken with Broccoli

December 16, 2013

I LOVE Chinese food. Love it. Grew up with a Taiwanese aunt, and although I HATED Chinese food when I was young, she slowly won me over and eventually got me to enjoy it. Since my RNY Chinese food has a tendency to upset my pouch. It is full of sugar and oil and a…

Chicken Marsala

December 2, 2013

I really do love this dish. And I love how EASY it really is to make. I found this in the book Before and After by Susan Maria Leach. This book has many wonderful recipes that are ideal for post-op patients, and for many different food stages! Most of them are simple, and all of…

Turkey Meatloaf

November 25, 2013

As a kid, I hated most meatloaves.  Then again, I hated a LOT of foods as a kid. If it was super plain and SMOTHERED in ketchup, then I would eat a meatloaf-but I would never enjoy it. Now, as an adult, I LOVE meatloaf, and love finding new variations to try. This one is…
