Pan-seared grouper tacos with avocado salsa

One of the best parts about living in South Florida is the fact that we have fresh seafood readily available. These tacos can really be made with any firm white fish (mahi mahi, tilapia, halibut, etc.) or even with some grilled shrimp!  The avocado salsa is fresh, easy, and relatively low-fat.

Grilled tomino cheese with sauteed zucchini

I’m baaaaack! Ugh, almost 2 weeks without a proper recipe post. Shame on me! Bad, bad, bad blogger….I really do have an excuse though. NYC! What an amazing place–a foodie heaven.

Spaghetti squash and skillet beef with sweet mini peppers

I really didn’t even know what to call this as you can tell by my extremely boring and unoriginal title. Maybe after reading the recipe you can come up with a better name?? I’ll gladly change it because my creativity level at 7:30 in the morning is obviously at an all time low! This is […]

Pesto Genovese

And I’m back! I realized tonight as I was writing this post that it’s been a week since I last posted. Where does the time go?? Life seems to get in the way and unfortunately the blog is the first thing that gets neglected (well really it’s the gym). On a happy note–it’s my birthday […]
