Longtime No Post!

With Spring has come a lack of baking and more grilling... thus less entries!
Sorry for taking a month off! Let me condense my cooking into a list....

Top 10 things made recently:
10- A mess :) I made cupcakes last night for my employee Katie's last day.
Straight from a Stonewall Kitchen box with Nutella Creme Cheese Icing. Kitchen
remains a mess

9- Blue Cheese Burgers- Have been feeling comfort foodie and made burgers (with 97% fat free
meat) stuffed with onions and blue cheese. Made up a YUMMY topping sauteing mushrooms, blue cheese, fat free mayo and a little water. Served on whole wheat! (Scott LOVED them)

8- Wasabi Grilled Pork- With Spring/Summer comes more grilling so I go into MEAT MODE.
Lately I have been marinating pork in wasabi with lime juice, salt and pepper and placing on grill. Serve with grilled asparagus and you barely have any dishes to do.

7- Smoothies- I have been making Mango Spinach smoothies from a recipe that I got on another
foodie blog:

6- Avocado, Black Bean and Corn Salad- This is SO EASY. Chopped avocado, can or rinsed black beans, can of rinsed corn, lime juice, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. YUM! and so fresh

5- Watermelon and Feta Salad- Need I say more? (Add red wine vinegar)

4- Turkey Avocado Burgers- Again, I told you, salad, meat and fruit my recent diet!
Lean Turkey mixed with onion soup seasoning, cumin, pepper grilled. I top it with Monterrey Jack Cheese, Avocado and Tomato. I serve on one slice grilled garlic bread!

3- Gourmet Pizzas- We have been eating these ALOT. I take a Low Carb Flatbread and grill with olive oil and garlic. Simultaneously I reduce down tomato, garlic and evoo (basil if I have it). This is the sauce. Then top with veggies-- preferably artichoke, spinach, onion and mushroom and mozzarella cheese. Back on top grill shelf for 5 minutes to melt.

2- Frittata- The easiest meal I could ever make! I saute onions, asparagus and mushrooms in a pan. I add 5 whisked eggs, salt, pepper and goat cheese. Put back on the eye and them in the oven on broil until egg rises and slightly brown.

1- Cabbage Broccoli Salad- This is my take on Cole Slaw and Broccoli Salad. I chop broccoli, red cabbage, red onion and mix in a Cole slaw dressing (fat-free mayo, red wine vinegar and sugar). Set in the fridge for an hour to marry the flavors! This is by far my FAVORITE new concoction!
