30-Minute Shrimp and Scallop Pasta

This thirty-minute meal was made on a night that both my husband, Jason and I didn’t want to go the grocery store. We were hungry, and I always have a craving for a good pasta, it is my favorite dish. This is why I will never substitute pasta for veggie noodles, or bean pasta. It just isn’t worth it to […]


Kid-Friendly Taco Pasta

I can’t believe the summer is nearly over. The busy school year has begun and the stresses of having dinner on the table is a forever ongoing problem.  We are at almost a month since my oldest has begun his college career 6 hours away. It has been so strange not having to grocery shop for him, and not having […]


Kid-Friendly Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta

Trying to lose weight and find recipes that my kids liked was always a challenge. If we could eat like kids as adults, wouldn’t it be great, but if I ate like my picky kid, I would never have been able to lose 40 pounds.  It is my goal to find healthy, delicious, kid-friendly meals. This one does not disappoint. […]


Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

This stuffed pepper soup is so yummy. It was very important to me in my weight loss journey that I find delicious, healthy and quick meals. This one is loaded with veggies.  Bell peppers happen to be my favorite vegetable and sometimes I just want a good soup especially on a cold day.  I cook this meal when I need […]


Chicken Tortilla Soup

My goal in my weight loss journey was to find healthy and delicious recipes. In fact, I didn’t try to lose my weight at first because I was always scared I would be missing out on all the good food. I am a Cajun girl at heart where delicious food was centered around everything. So, for the longest time I […]


Instant Pot Green Chicken Enchiladas

I love finding healthy recipes where I don’t have to be on my feet for a long time to cook it.  I worked full time for many years and quite often I resorted to eating out at fast food places, so I didn’t have to come home and cook. When I started my weight loss journey, I needed to stop […]


Mustard Greens

Ahh the veggies, we either love them or hate them. When I started my weight loss journey I had about four veggies I would eat. And I would rotate them from week to week.  Throughout the years I have been slowly adding more veggies to my list. I realized that it was the way that I cooked them that determined […]


Cajun Brine

I absolutely love brining my meat. It makes it come out so juicy and delicious. I didn’t really use brines until a few years ago. We had my niece and her husband visit, and he really wanted to cook for us.  He brought a pork loin, which we knew could turn out really dry, so we never really cooked that […]
