So glad that I went with the culinary ride. Hopped outside the box and decided to take my yams to another level. Cubed, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled those nutrient packed foods with cinnamon, a pinch of salt, and powdered ginger. Placed them on foiled baking sheet and baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit forContinue reading “ROASTED SWEET POTATO/CHICKEN SALAD”
Wasn’t happy with the seeds in my grapes. Thought I had bought the seedless version. Decided to roast them and oh what deliciousness. Those little seeds became quite crispy and more edible.

Greens were rinsed in tepid water and then added to foodContinue reading “LINGUINE WITH KALE/BROCCOLI PESTO TOPPED WITH HONEY/LEMON SHRIMP”
MY PASTA IS GOING TO BE SUPER-HAPPY!
On this Easter day, I decided to be in company of the other feathery one. My protein of choice was turkey. Transformed my lean protein into a succulent loaf. And, because turkey is somewhat bland, I decided to incorporate diced vegetables, spices, herbs and other ingredients so as to boost the taste in a hugeContinue reading “WENT TURKEY FOR EASTER! #TURKEY LOAF WITH SWEET/SOUR SAUCE”

I borrowed one of their popular staples (couscous) and allowed same to be a nest or bed for my citrus chicken drumsticks. Couscous is uncooked semolina balls (likened to fineContinue reading “ROASTED CITRUS DRUMSTICKS ON A BED OF COUSCOUS”
