Recent Recipes :: Spaghetti Spaghetti, Mashed Cauliflower & Salads

Lately, I have been getting back in to cooking and it's making me so happy! I really love to cook and experiment with new recipes, but when I got pregnant and couldn't tolerate eating anything other than Pasta Roni White Cheddar Shells, I pretty much stayed out of the kitchen. I've slowly been getting my groove back and have been playing with some new recipes and today thought I'd share some of my new favorites!

Spaghetti Squash Spaghetti 
  1. Bake squash...cut in half length-wise, remove seeds, place face up on cookie sheet. Bake at 450 for 45 minutes, scrape out "spaghetti"
  2. Cook ground turkey on the stove
  3. Add 8oz can tomato sauce and 4oz can tomato paste to turkey. Let simmer and add garlic, oregano, salt and pepper. 
Inspired by:


Chicken Cobb Salad
Fresh lettuce, Grilled Chicken {with lemon herb seasoning}, avocado, carrots, turkey bacon with a lite Greek vinaigrette dressing. 

Lite Pasta Salad
