Have you ever been throwing a dinner for friends and realized at the last minute that you don't have a dessert? It's happened to me more times than I can count. I have two go to options in these cases. One is vanilla ice cream with coffee liqueur over the top. The second is a quick strawberry shortcake!

Give me this tomato soup and a grilled cheese to go with it!


These banana balls sound amazing! I'm wondering if I could get my kids to eat them!


Just look at this sushi spread! I can't think of a better way to wrap up a weekend!

Making meals out of leftovers is the best! It's so fun to come up creative combinations out of the food that's already in the fridge!

Somehow when we travel, we always end at a local doughnut shop that is awesome! I just may have to find a way to check this one out!


There's a way to make everything better. Paula Dean says it's butter. It's obviously bacon!



This has to be the best way to travel. Visit a friend in a far off land and find a place that only the locals would go to, all while eating street food!

This has to be best way to do breakfast that I have seen in quite some time!

If your family is anything like mine, your gatherings revolve mostly around food. Having these bite sized, portable appetizers would be great at our next party!


Who else has great memories with grandma in the kitchen? Now you can go back with these classic recipes!

Sugar, sugar, everywhere, especially in sauces. You'd be surprised at how easy it is to cut down on you sugar intake. 


My wife and I have eaten our way through Paris, but we haven't been through the rest of Europe. Maybe this is a sign that we need to plan a trip!

Cooking with turkey has long been something I have wanted to try in an effort to cook more healthy options. It's just not something we use a lot. This recipe definitely sounds like something good we need to try out!
For close to a decade now, I have worked with the Houston American Diabetes Association on a bike ride called Tour de Cure. Finding foods that can help lower the risk of diabetes and other conditions, is huge!

We always buy packages of store bought naan bread to go with curry and a few others! Now we can make this at home!

What's more southern than Shrimp and Grits? Finding a good version on a menu anywhere is like a slice of heaven!

Eggplant is not something I cook with often. I've tried Eggplant Parmesan and even cut it in to thin slices to use in place of lasagna noodles. But this stuff eggplant takes it to a new level. I just might have to try this one out!
I love cinnamon and sugar dusted fruits and vegetables. They go perfectly with roasted meats! I never thought to add the roasted nuts to it though!

The presentation here stopped me in my tracks. Once I came to, I looked at the salmon. Truth be told, there is little that can done that can ruin a good salmon filet! It's always so good!

These flatbreads look amazing! Almost like a fajita!

My wife and I were talking about making stuffed peppers the other day. I like to take a look at the way other people do their stuffed peppers to see how they make them!

There is nothing like some fresh produce! These habaneros look amazing!

One of my favorite foods to take to a party is good spinach dip. But adding shrimp to the mix, genius!

Spinach and Chickpea Salad

Spinach Chickpea Salad
Spinach Chickpea Salad
One of my problems with "healthy" food options is that they always leave me hungry. It just seems like there is no substance to them. A while back I found this recipe on active.com and it turned out to be really good and filling. It is a great source of iron and protein, making it a great salad to enjoy after a workout. I have added a few ingredients to it over the years, but it is still mostly true to the original.


The Recipe:

The Tools:

  • Large Bowl
  • Citrus Reamer
  • Pot

The Ingredients:

  • 1 Package of Spinach
  • 2 Boiled Eggs - Chopped
  • 1 Can of Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) - Rinsed
  • 1 Large Lemon - Juiced
  • Olive Oil 
  • Salt and Pepper

The Method:

Probably one of the best things about making a salad, is the simplicity. That stays true for this one. First, boil water the eggs. This usually takes about 10 to 12 minutes. I like to put the eggs in when the water is cold. It seems to cook the eggs more evenly and faster.

Once the eggs are done, combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.

Some of the ingredients I've added over the years include feta, green onions, tomatoes, olivers, capers, and feta.

I never did meet a cheeseboard I didn't like, especially with those mixed olives front and center!
I've always liked pasta, maybe a little too much. Hello carbs. So, I may try out this dish with cucumber noodles to make it a healthier option!

Chicago has always been one of those places I've always wanted to go. Now, I have a brunch guide for my trip, which happens to be my favorite meal!

Let's be honest, I love meat. But there are options out there for protein that don't involve meat, especially as every day we hear more and more that we need to limit our red meat intake.
