This social distancing and staying put has mama over here baking! Which is fine because I LOVE to cook and bake! 

I’m really trying to take this time home, to be more creative in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, my career enables me to work from home! So, my plate is full (pardon the pun) 🤪

The thing with being in the kitchen, is that it relaxes me. I truly enjoy it. I do what I want, how I want, at my pace and it comes out yum...

Did you know that tomatoes have a high source of the antioxidant lycopene? Did you also know that a tomato is considered a fruit? Well, you do now! Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin c, play a pivotal part in digestive health and have about 1.5 grams of fiber per serving! Eating a 1/2 cup serving of tomatoes is about 18 calories.

Tomatoes are so versatile! You can use them in a sauce, jam, fried, in a sandwich or in a soup!...

During the holiday season, I try to share recipes that are fun, healthy and can be added to your holiday spread. Whether it’s a main course, side or dessert, I try to give my readers something different, to wow their families and guests. 

This year, I’m going to share some air fried snacks to keep your guests at bay while they wait patiently for the main course! 

These spinach cheese puffs are so good! I came across th...

Here’s another tasty snack for your pre thanksgiving dinner spread! These are great as a game time snack as well. They can be made vegan friendly by swapping the egg for olive oil or a light coating of vegan mayo to bind the bread crumbs! 

What I like about using the air fryer is that it’s the best of both worlds! You’re not deep frying anything in oil which adds fats and cholesterol but instead you’re air frying which gives yo...

Who likes apple pie? I do!!!! Well, I know this blog isn’t  about me liking apple pie! However, did you know that one slice of apple pie is somewhere between 280-300 calories? The amount of fat and sugar in that slice (depending on the size of the pie) is pretty significant. Now, you all know I like to take traditional recipes and make them healthier, but this is one that I really just do not want to change! So instead of “cha...

I love the fall for so many reasons! One of which, is soups! A few weeks ago, I had a craving for Broccoli Cheddar Soup. My husband had a craving for my Cuban Pastelitos (small turnovers with a flaky dough but that’s for another blog). That request stood with me. However, it didn’t stay with me enough to make them! 😂

I made my soup and thought to myself, this would be really good as a stuffing in a pastelito! Let me be clear,...

It's my favorite season of the year!!! I love the fall! The crisp chill in the air, light jackets and sweaters, my daughter's birthday, pumpkin picking and Halloween are just a few of my favorite reasons why I love the fall so much!

Speaking of pumpkin picking.... in the past I’ve shared some delicious pumpkin recipes during this time of the year and this year will be no different! This easy pumpkin recipe is one that the whole...
