High Protein, Low Carb Pancakes

Let’s face it, sometimes you just CRAVE pancakes. But we all know that bloated, guilty feeling after indulging on too many fluffy carb-filled pancakes that have no real nutritional value.

When my husband goes out of town, that can only mean one thing…Yes, I admit it…I COOK WITH ALL THE VEGGIES I WANT! Silly I know, but though I miss him when he’s gone I take advantage of our time apart by indulging in all the vegetables that I love but that he doesn’t care … Continue reading

Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets

I think it would be hard for most of us adults to deny that we get a little jealous when we watch kids eat chicken nuggets. At least I hope that’s not just me… There is just something nostalgic about them. For me, I specifically remember earning trips to McDonalds as a child…every single time I … Continue reading
