Veggie Meatloaf

Veggie Meatloaf (1 of 1)

This veggie meatloaf recipe was another great find from my regular online browsing for healthy but good recipes. Its pretty lean because it uses turkey and it’s packed with zucchini and peppers. The red and yellow peppers give it the most beautiful color. I’m tellin’ ya, you’ll feel led to take a picture. And Oh Lordy, the balsamic glaze is divine. It’s rich and sweet and simply freaking delicious really.  Nothing better than a relatively guilt-free meal that also makes you want seconds and even thirds. Come on, Ladies and Gents, try it! Also, recipe courtesy of Bobby Flay and The Food Network. Bobby Flay…love him!

Healthy Pops


Living in the South I have many memories of making ice-pops. June, July, and August are hot enough to make you want to pack up your grill and tents and lawn chairs and hibernate indoors for a while. So, many of us Louisianians have frozen anything and everything just to stay cool during these hot months. Of course, we’re not quite into those hot months, but its been getting pretty warm. I promised my 3 year old we could make some the other day, and now that we’re getting to it, its 60 degrees out. But, hey, its good practice for the months to come, right?

Herb Feta Salad


This is one of those spontaneous food adventures that just happens and you’re sure that you’ve just discovered something new and delicious. I really just threw these things together, because I love each thing and thought they’d be lovely together. I really wanted to call this salad All of My Favorite Things Salad, but that lacks quite a bit of description.

Lemon Bars


Forget the Lemonade stand I want some Lemon Bars! Or maybe Lemonade and Lemon Bars. Uh, OK maybe there is such a thing as too much lemon. Gasp, I don’t know I love lemon everything…the above mentioned, lemon cookies, lemon pie, lemon water, lemony hummus, big bite of lemon wedge! Yums! I’ve had this recipe for a while now and can not remember where I got it from. Spring and summer always reminds me of it and thus begins the struggle not to make it every weekend. It’s so gooey and yet crumbly…sweet and yet tart. If you guys try it, let me know what you think!
