Greek Coleslaw

Since my husband had to work over the 4th of July weekend, we celebrated with a cookout on July 3rd.  We went to a nice state park just across the border, in Kentucky. The weather had been consistently in the mid-90’s, with lots of humidity, but the temperatures dropped to mid-70’s for several days around… Continue reading Greek Coleslaw

Healthy Cinnamon Apple Oat Pancakes {No Added Sugar}

Sweet, soft, satisfying, moist, hearty, delicious….healthy? Yes, indeed.  All of those adjectives describe these pancakes.  They manage to deserve all of those adjectives despite not containing any butter, oil, or added sugar.

I decided to stray… Continue reading White Sauce Chicken Pizza

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

If an ingredient is important enough to make its way into the title of the recipe, I better be able to taste it in the dish! It only makes sense, right?  Well, when I first made ‘chocolate peanut butter brownies’ according to a recipe I had found…I couldn’t taste the peanut butter at all.  And… Continue reading Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Feta Broccoli Tuna Salad

What do you do when you have nothing to eat, little inclination to cook, and you’re hungry already? Make a super simple tuna salad, that’s what! This is almost too easy to be considered a recipe.  There are so many different directions in which this could be taken.   I decided to start out simple,… Continue reading Feta Broccoli Tuna Salad
