Alfredo Chicken Roulade

So I may have mentioned once that when I get on a kick, I sorta just ride it out until I get sick of whatever I was obsessed with. Or maybe I didn’t. At any rate, the Chicken Roulade I made while in Michigan with Pam inspired this version – Alfredo! Enjoy. (Wow…I feel compelled to write four more paragraphs …

Chicken Roulade

I’m writing to you today from cloudy and cool Saginaw, Michigan, where I’m visiting my friend Pam (of “The Journey to a Healthier Me” or you all would best know her as the cover designer of all of Bariatric Foodies fabulous book offerings on Amazon!). She’s been showing me all sorts of lovely places and I’m having a blast. We’ve …

Breakfast Week: Nik’s Warm Asparagus Salad

This blog post title is something of a misnomer. I started wanting to remake a warm asparagus salad I had at Cheesecake Factory. Oh it was lovely! It was on their Skinnylicious Menu and had fresh asparagus, pine nuts, basil, Parmesan Cheese and a fried egg on top.  It was a bit heavy on the oil though so I knew …

Nik’s Mini Farm-Stand Frittata

This is a close-up but this frittata fits on a SALAD sized plate! So in case you haven’t heard, my third book, The Bariatric Foodie Breakfast Book, was released today in hard copy on Amazon! (My e-book loving Foodies, hold tight! I just got what I hope is the final draft of the Kindle, Nook and iPad versions so I …

Nik’s Chicken Chorizo Skillet

  I go to Denny’s. Quite a bit. That may be a bad thing for a post-op to admit but what the heck. If nothing else, you know I keep it real! S’anyway. I mostly go there because I know what to order there. I know my options and I exercise them! But every now and again they get something new. …

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“). But …

Corned Beef Hash a la Nik

 You know what’s been missing on this blog lately? FOOD! So what better way to jump back into playing with our food than with a spin on one of my fave breakfast foods. Corned beef hash. Oh how I miss it! And miss it I did until I had a light bulb moment (these are few and far between …

Mexican Sausage & Peppers

(This recipe is brought to you by Trader Joes. Yummy!) So the divas and I went to Trader Joe’s the other day. For us this is a trek but it’s well worth it. I always try to pick up at least one thing I’ve never tried before to broaden my horizons. So this time I got some Spicy Jalapeno Chicken …

Steak: A Love Story in Three Acts

You might ask, “Nik, why’d you put steak on brocolli slaw?” That would be a good question. The answer? It was the best garnish I had available!!!  So since surgery, me and beef have had beef. For a while I couldn’t eat most beef products: not steaks, not roast (even out of the crockpot), no ground beef. The only …

Nik’s Cheesesteak Scramble

 Cheese-steak…not cake. I get that a lot when I write that word! Anyhoo…I love eggs! From my head down to my legs. 🙂 Ok, ok…that was cheesy. If you can eat eggs, consider yourself blessed because many cannot post op. I personally don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t. I CRAVE the things. But for me an egg …
