Julia’s Thai Shrimp Skillet

Before we get into the yumminess you see above, indulge me a proud mama moment. My friend Julia (who some of you may know as the “Bariatric Foodie Pledge List Minion”) took this picture. When she did this picture I gave her a few pointers, as I give many of my friends, on taking a good food photo. It was …

Kale & Quinoa Soup

  Those of you who were on Facebook and Twitter last night, and experienced my impromptu “cook-a-long” may wonder what prompted me to make soup, from scratch, after 10 p.m. And that would be a valid question. Yesterday I had a small bout of LPS (Little Pouch Syndrome, or, when you just get full very fast with very little food). …

Lobster Faux-Mac & Cheese

Remember back in the day when ignorance was bliss? When you could o to a restaurant, order some food and, even though overwhelming evidence to the contrary, delude yourself that there is some redeeming health value. Yeah…well those days are over. This recipe started because of that fact. The “not-so-bariatric boyfriend” and I were at a restaurant where they served …

Pumpkin Toffee Protein Shake

According to my children, pumpkin time is over. This, of course, led to a discussion of the popular Christmas songs that actually include pumpkin references. (By the way, I could actually only think of two: “Hear Those Sleigh Bells Ringing” and “No Place Like Home for the Holidays” but if you can think of  others, help me build my case!!!) …

Taco Soup

  …and a lesson about self-care. Since I realize I don’t put date stamps on my blog posts, for future reference this is being posted on December 5, 2013, the day after my 37th birthday. I know many of you wonder what to do on your birthday. In a former life there was cake and ice cream and overly indulgent …

Super Juicy Meatloaf

  So…if you had absolutely no life, an abundant amount of time on your hands and no responsibilities and happened to have the interest in perusing the history of this blog…you would see that ground meat and I have a precarious relationship. Which is funny because I have lots of recipes on this blog using ground meat (like my “Magic Meatballs“). …

Protein Pumpkin Bread

Indulge me a short manifesto. Every year (late-August, to be exact) the same thing happens. I innocently log onto my Facebook feed and see that my friends have started to “pumpkin all the things!” And frankly, it’s all a bit ridiculous to me. Like the other day I saw a pumpkin spice flavored chicken sausage. Like…really? I’m not going to …
