Well last night i was feeling a bit under the weather and so Jez decided to mkae some dinner. Well i asked him what he was thinking cuz we have no food in our house. This strike shit from work is hitting us now. But anyways he said he would figure it out. So i let him.

Well about an hour later he told me to come eat. Well he found cabbage and chicken and went to work. Well he made an awesome soup for me to eat while i was sick.


1/2 cabbage head
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4-5 cups of water
3-4 tsp of chicken boulion

He boiled the cabbage till soft. Mean while cooking the chicken in cubes. Then put the chicken in with the cabbage and added all the rest of the ingredients.

I cut up a reb bell pepper and put some in my soup and it was tasty and he put some hot sauce in his and loved it.

He called it his homemade chicken cabbage soup, kinda like chicken noodle soup but chicken cabbage soup.

Well one night i didnt have anything planned so i made up my own little dinner with what i had in the house. So i grabbed some chicken adn defrosted it, then cooked it up with some lemon pepper and lime juice on it, once it was cooked i threw on some avocados and scallions. Let it cook for a few minutes then i put some cheese over the top. Then we had it over some penne noodles.

Green Lemonade with a twist!!!

Well one day i wanted Green Lemonade but didnt havea ll the ingredients. 3 Apples, 2 lemons, 4 stalks of celery and 2 bunches of spinach. So i found me 2 oranges, 4 limes, 5-6 celery stalks and about 3 bunches of spinach. Man it tasted just the same and was so awesome. I love the green lemonade.

One night i was really wantting some green lemonade and not just one glass of it, so we made a huge pithcer of it and had it all day to drink.

Soy Marinated Chicken

Soy Marinated Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1 orange
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 lb asparagus
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 Cut chicken breasts diagonally and place in a single layer in the bottom of an oven-proof dish.
2 Pour in soy sauce. Squeeze the juice from half the orange onto the chicken. Cut the other half of the orange into wedges and arrange on top of the chicken.
3 Cover and marinate for several hours.
4 Preheat the oven to 350°F When oven is heated, remove cover from chicken, flip chicken, and bake 20 minutes (uncovered). Flip again and bake another 15 minutes.
5 Meanwhile, trim woody ends from asparagus. Heat a little oil or butter in a heavy skillet. Saute the asparagus, adding the white pepper and lemon juice a little at a time to glaze the asparagus. Cook until desired texture is reached. This will probably not take more than 10 minutes.
6 Serve chicken and orange wedges on top of asparagus.

Homemade Spaghetti sauce with meatballs

Well we finally ran out healthy food to eat and dont have money right now to go to the store so we are eating what we have in the house. Which since we just barely switched over to eating healthy we have remnants of unhealthy food still in the pantry. So i decided to make our ever loving spaghetti sauce that we all love.
1 onion, diced
3 cans spaghetti sauce
2 cans diced spaghetti(we usually use my grandmas canned tomatoes but we ran out and don't live close by her so we have to deal with store bought now)
2-3 tablespoons garlic salt
2-3 tablespoons oregano
1 teaspoon basil leaves
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Throw the onion in a pot and saute it for about 5 minutes and then add everything else and let it come to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer it. Stir it every now and then.
Since we just used what was in the house, we had a bag of meatballs int eh freezer that needed to be eaten so i threw those in with the sauce and let them cook fro about 20 min(as recommended on the package).
Boiled up some noodles and threw it all together.
Well i had my brother over fro diner since he is home alone and doesn't have mommy to cook fro him. Since the rest of my family went to Mexico this week for spring break. But the bag of meatballs didn't have to many in it and well my 19 yr old brother ate all the meatballs out of the sauce.
Well we had tons of sauce left over and i just put it in the fridge for the next night. And i cut up some chicken and threw it int he sauce and warmed it up on the stove top and made some penne noodles and we had chicken in it the next night.
Sorry no picture for that one, i totally spaced it. We have some leftover from that ill take some pics today at lunch and post it. LOL

Pineapple, Peach and Pear Juice

This is one of the recipes that came in my juicer recipe book. It turned out so yummy and fruity. LOL It contains pineapple, pears, and peaches.

1/2 small pineapple

2 medium pears

3 peaches

I had used pears that my grandma had canned and my husband had told me not to use them cuz theya re already all juiced and soggy and i should have listened to him, but oh well i made a huge mess and had to clean it up. But it still turned out so good.

I have been asking myself what to do with teh pulp or remenents from the juicer since i started to juice and i figure once i get my garden started i will put them in there but fro now i just have to throw them away. Well this mornings juiced items i had an idea with....

Then with all the left over remenents from the juiced items i purified them and put them int eh freezer for TexyAnn when she starts to eat baby food.

Dried-Fruit & Apple Strudel

My oldest brother Garson, says that these taste like Boklava. I have to admit it kinda does but nothing in them are the same. But they are mighty tasty.


2 medium apples, peeled and diced
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped nuts
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped mixed dried fruit
1/4 cup (50 mL) whole-wheat bread crumbs
2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2 mL) pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh lemon juice
3 sheets packaged phyllo dough, thawed
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter, melted (or use low-fat vegetable oil spray)

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together apples, nuts and dried fruit, bread crumbs, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and lemon juice. Lay one sheet of phyllo on the counter and brush with melted butter (or spray lightly with cooking oil). Repeat for the remaining sheets of phyllo. Place the fruit mixture along one end of the layered phyllo. Grasp that end and roll up the phyllo, lightly brushing or spraying the dry under-parts of the pastry as you go. Pinch and fold both ends to secure the filling. Brush the surface of the phyllo once more with a little butter or a quick spray of cooking oil.
Place on a non-stick baking sheet, seam side down, and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool. To serve, gently slice the strudel on a bias in 2-in.- (5-cm-) thick slices. Serve with fruit preserves or low-fat frozen yogurt. Serves six.

Ready to Juice!!!

Well today i went and found some recipes for juicers and got some from the book that came with it and made a grocery list and went shopping. I have $80 bucks to spent and thought "Oh i will for sure stay under that!" Well i did surprisingly at $66 for all the produce i needed for another 2 weeks of juicing. Well i have it all put away and somewhat stored but need to get another storage for all these fruits and veggies. But here is what i have now.
In the above picture, in the bowl is oranges, grapfruit, peaches, and mangos. Also there is 4 bags of apples and a pineapple.

Sorry dont mind the beer int eh fridge, its not healthy but its what Jez's friend got him as a thank you gift fro all the help we have given him. LOL

In the top shelf is the water and then bananas behind it. My kids love to eat bananas so thats why we have them in two places. One where the kids can reach and eat them and then ones i have for my stuff, if i left them all in reach of the kids they would be gone and none for me. LOL In the first drawer is limes, lemons and tomatoes. The second drawer has onions( yellow, white, and red).

And this is our counter top. Here are more tomatoes that need to be used soon. LOL A cantaloupe and bananas. There are also two more bags of apples on the counter by the juicer but only like 3-4 in each bag.

Well that is our house now fulllllllllllll of fruits and veggies. Thank you to Neil that got me eating healthy. I will so thank him for the rest of my life for asking me to help him with recipes.

Scallopped Cabbage with Chicken

We had this on Wednesday night for dinner. It was quite tasty but would need some spices to taste. Maybe salt and pepper would even be good. I dint add any spices to make it have a taste. You can taste the cabbage which isnta problem for me, i love cabbage. But others might not. My 3 yr old thinks cabbage is lettuce and she loves lettuce so ill keep it that way. LOL She inhaled this dinner, only cuz it has tomatoes and so called lettuce in it and cheese on the top.

Also we had our asparagas taht we love. LOL It is sauted in lime juice and salt. You add quite a bit of salt on top of them as you are stirring them around. I usually squeeze 4-5 key limes(the little ones) into teh pan ontop of the asparags. And just let them saute for about 10-15 minutes stirring every now and then. They are so yummy.

Sorry for the pictures. Some night we forget to take pics before we eat teh dish and so these are Jez's half eaten plate of food. Mine was gone before i remembered to take pictures.

Carrot, Celery, Apple Juice

So we got our juicer the other day and have been making grovery lists of what produce we need and i thougth we needed most of evrything. Well i was layingin bed this moring waiting fro jez to go to work and thought to myself what produce we had in the fridge and kept thinking i didnt have anything to make a drink but then it clicked that we had gotten carrots from teh store the other day so i jumped up out of bed(litterally, it scared Jez and he asked what i was doing and i said "I'm going to juice.") So i ran down stairs and sure enough i had carrots in the drawer of the fridge so i was off to get things ready to juice. Jez came down and said "Wow that was a fast trip to the store!!" LOL i said no we had them int he fridge. So here is our morning breakfast.

4 apples( i did 2 golden deliciou and 2 red(forgot the name))
4 celery
3 medium carrots(peeled)

Throw them all in the juicer and ENJOY!!!! We both liked this drink, you can taste all of the different ingredients but i was really good. I really love how well Jez has taken on the juicer. I thought he was going to kill me for buying it.

My new Juicer, Green Lemonade!!!

OH MAN!!!!!!!! I so wish i had a juicer prior to this. It is so great. Even Jez is amazed how it juices and grinds stuff. It has a powerful engine is what Jez says.
I got this recipe from a friend of mine and i tried it once in a blender and was so discouraged when it didnt turn out so i went and bought me a juicer to see if it would turn out better. Well it turned out great.
Kale( You could use Spinach)
2 handfuls of spinach, 2 stalks of celery, 3 apples (2 red delicious and a granny smith is what we used this time, but could use any kind), and 1.5 lemons (peel and all!). Throw it all in the Juicer and you got your self a yummy delicious Green Lemonade!!!

Stuffed Cabbage Head

Man this was a mess to make. You have take the leaves apart from the main cabbage growth section. That was fun!!!! But then the rest of the cooking was pretty good. It says to use spaghetti sauce for the topping and we just had some sauce left over from what me make homemade pizzas from. So i used that and it turned out so yummy.

25 to 30 Cabbage leaves
3/4 cup uncooked rice
1 1/2 pint boiling water
2 tbsp. bacon drippings
1 med. onion, chopped fine
1 stick celery, chopped fine
1 cup lean ground beef
1 cup ground pork
1/2 cup cooked ham, chopped fine
1 egg, well beaten
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper
1 clove garlic, mashed
A large white cotton cloth about 28 " square
American or Velveeta cheese to grate

Preparation:Immerse cabbage leaves in salted boiling water; cook 2 to 3 min. or until wilted, adding a few at a time. Avoid crowding; drain and cool.
Cook rice in boiling salted water 12 minutes; drain and transfer the rice to a large bowl.
Cook ground pork in bacon drippings until brown, stirring occasionally. Add slat, pepper, garlic, onion, and celery, cook 5 minutes longer. Pour into cooked rice.
Combine, rice, pork mixture, ham, ground beef, nutmeg, thyme, and egg, mix well and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
Spread out the cloth. In center, place 4 cabbage leaves, to later resemble growing end of cabbage. Place about 1 tbsp. of mixture in center of each leaf and spread a bit.
Continue building up the the head, using up the least attractive leaves first and placing dressing over each. Then at the last try and cover top and sides with the more perfect leaves, having used up all the dressing in the center.
Bring up all 4 corners of the cloth and tie a string tightly and closely to the cabbage. In a large pot, pour 1 pint or more of water; place a rack or crumpled aluminum foil in the bottom. Place wrapped cabbage on rack, cover with a tight fitting lid and cook over med. heat. When water comes to a boil, reduce heat and cook 1 hour.
When it is done, turn off the heat and let set covered for 10 minutes. Then untie string, unwrap, grate cheese over top, cover again for a couple of minutes, then gently lift our cloth and slip onto a platter.
Serve sliced in wedges, cut like a cake, pass your favorite tomato sauce over each helping.

Romaine pesto and egg-stuffed tomatoes

This was so yummy, but my newborn didnt like it to much. She was up all that night that i ate it and then during the next day while we were out grocery shopping she decided to blow out her diaper. And it wasnt fun to clean up. But i enjoyed this meal. We had it as a main meal but i would recommend it s a side dish or as an appetizer.

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large head romaine (about 1 1/2 lb) *
1 large garlic clove
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 oz finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (1/2 cup), plus additional for serving
6 large tomatoes (about 3 inches in diameter)
6 large eggs at room temperature

Strip romaine leaves from stems, reserving both separately, then tear leaves into roughly 2-inch pieces. Measure 4 loosely packed cups of leaves and reserve remainder. With motor running, add garlic to food processor to finely chop. Turn off and add the 4 cups romaine leaves along with the parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and cheese, then pulse until finely chopped. With motor running, add remaining cup oil in a slow stream, blending until incorporated.
Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 400°F.
Cut off about 1/8 inch from top of each tomato with a sharp knife.** Gently scrape out pulp and seeds with a spoon and discard them. Put tomatoes, cut sides up, in a 9-inch glass or ceramic dish and spoon 1 tablespoon romaine-parsley pesto into each tomato (you will have extra pesto). Crack 1 egg into each tomato and season with salt and pepper. Bake eggs in tomatoes until whites are set and yolks are still runny, 18 to 22 minutes.

Apple, Banana and Sweet Potato Smoothie

Ok i had attempted to make a drink that my friend had recommended but then it didnt turn out, so when i went to make this drink i was a bit skeptical on it. But once it was made and i started to drink it, no more skeptizism. It was yummy and will be making it again.

1 (114 g) medium sweet potato, cooked, unpeeled and cooled
1/2 cup (120 mL) skim milk
1 (120 g) small banana
1/2 (70 g) golden delicious apple, cut in half
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon honey or other sweetener, to taste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups (480 mL) ice cubes

Place all ingredients in Vita-Mix container in order listed. Secure 2-part lid. Select VARIABLE, speed #1. Turn on machine and quickly increase speed to #10; then to HIGH. Run for 1 minute or until smooth. Serve immediately!

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

These turned out pretty good. I forgot to buy the fuit topping for them so not as good as the ones in the pictur of the recipe but we are going to make them again and make the fruit toppings.

Lemon-Scented Broccoli Soufflé, Green salad with Avocado Dressing

This was so yummy i cant wait to make it again. Although when i went to make it i saw that there wasnt any meat int he meal and my husband has to have meat or thinks its not a meal. So i made the stuffed chicken from teh previous night(scroll down to see the Cheese stuffed Chicken with Avocados). So i made the souffle and then i put the chicken on teh bottom of the cassaroel dish and topped it with the broccolli and it turned out way yummy.

Here is the Lemon-Scented Broccoli Souffle recipe:
And then for the Green salad, i jut cut up some romaine lettuce and put tomoatoes, yellow and orange bell peppers on it and some green onions diced. Then we had an Avocado Dressing that my friend had given to me. I loved it and so did my 3 yr old and my husband, who by the way never eats salads, he went back fro anothe rportion of salad with the dressing on it.
Here is the blog of my friend that gave me the dressing recipe.
Avocado dressing (or spread depending on how thick yours turns out)
1 large avocado
2 teaspoons olive oil
dry chives
sea salt
1 lemon (I juiced 1.5 lemons so I have no idea how much I used in regards to tsp./tbls.)
Add avocado and olive oil to blender and blend until mixed together. NOTE: It will not mix entirely right away. It will still be slightly chunky. Add in seasonings and turn on blender. While running add in lemon juice (you can do this before turning it on..I find it mixes easier if I do it this way). Blend until smooth.

Egg Sandwich for Breakfast

Well i dditn havet his one planned but needed to use some cresent rolls up int he house so i just made me and the kids some sandwiches.


Egg(cook all the way thru)
Sliced Tomatoes
Muenster cheese
Mayo(just a little)
Cresent roll

Cooked up the egg and sliced the cheese and tomoatoes and then threw it all on the bread.

Cheese Stuffed Chicken with Avocados

Man i am so happy i get decided to start eating healthy. This one isnt one of the healthiest but it is better than what we use to eat. LOL

Here is the recipe website:

8 chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless

1/2 tsp seasoned salt

1/2 cup butter at room temperature

1/2 tsp dried leaf oregano, crushed

1/2 tsp chopped fresh parsley 4 oz Havarti or Monterrey Jack cheese, cut into 8 slices

1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1/2 cup dry white wine Avocado slices Tomato wedges

Preheat oven to 375 degrees (190 degrees C). Wash chicken breasts; pat them dry with white paper towels. Place chicken breast pieces between sheets of plastic wrap. Pound with the flat side of a meat mallet until thin and about doubled in size. Sprinkle seasoned salt over chicken. In a small bowl, combine butter, oregano and parsley. Spread half of the butter mixture over one side of the chicken breasts. Top each breast with a slice of cheese. Roll up each chicken breast tightly, tucking in ends to make each stuffed breast approximately the same length as the other. Place in a shallow 1-1/2 quart casserole. In a small saucepan, melt remaining butter mixture and brush over chicken. Sprinkle with bread crumbs. Add wine to casserole dish. Bake, uncovered, 30 to 40 minutes or until tender and browned. Be careful not to overcook. Garnish with avocado slices and tomato wedges.

Banana Oat Pancakes

Man were these yummy!!!!!

I think that is all i got to say, LOL. My Uncle had asked me to find breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinners. So here is my first breakfast. And oh did it taste yummy. Instead of syrup on it, i put some applesauce on the top and then ate some fruit with it on the side.

Tell you the truth i think my meals will be healthy meals for me, but when my hubby gets the condiments on them his turns out to not be so healthy. He and the kids put syrup on their pancakes this morning.
Here is the site that i got it from:

1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/4 cup soy flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups (360 mL) plain soymilk
2 (200 g) bananas, in chunks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional

Place all ingredients, except bananas, in Vita-Mix container. Secure two-part lid. Select VARIABLE, speed #1. Turn on machine and quickly increase speed to #4 or #5. Run for 10 seconds. Reduce speed to VARIABLE, speed #2. Remove lid plug. Add bananas through lid opening. Replace lid plug. Run for 5 to 10 seconds, until mixed.Place all ingredients, except bananas, in Vita-Mix container. Secure two-part lid. Select VARIABLE, speed #1.

Ham and Cauliflower Soup

This recipe has some starches in it but i was thinking it was pretty healthy too.

Baked Oatmeal with Cranberries

Here is my first of the healthy meals or snacks that i am starting fro my Uncle. Well i started to look for recipes and started to notice that we have none the healthy recipe ingredients in our house. LOL So i had to make a grocery list and go shopping for alot. LOL It was fun tho to see what was healthy and what wasnt. I will admit i do have a few recipes for the next two weeks that arent all taht healthy but heathlier than what we were eating.

But here is our first Breakfast/Snack recipe.

I got it from the site above and couldnt wait to make it. Had an adventure finding the ingredients but also found a new store int eh mean time that i will shop now everytime i need groceries.

With this recipe tho i didnt use the exact ingrediaents, I have some troubles using the exact ingredients. LOL But i used orange-Cranberries instead of regular ones. And then i used peacons instead of walnuts. Only cuz we had a huge bag of peacons in our house.

Eating healthy

My Uncle Neil, who is a fitness expert called me last week sometime and was telling me how he liked my blogging about my recipes. So he asked me if I would help him wiht some recipes and making them then taking pictures. So i told him i would love to help him out and it would get my family to start eating healthy. I have been watning to eat healthier for a few years now. But being pregnatn didnt help that much. So now that i am done with havign kids and want to get back to my high school figure(my hope) i figured it was the perfect time to start and to help my uncle out with his website. So we had our last of eating out this week and potatoe filled foods. LOL

So here we go with a healthier life and getting our kids to eat more of a variety of foods.

But here is one last meal taht is our family favorite that we will only make maybe once a month if that since it is packed with carbs. It is Sheapards Pie and we love it so much. But i put a little twist on this one. We didnt have hamburger meat but we have tons of chicken so i cooked up some chicken and cut it up and threw it in. Here is the recipe i used but then tweeked.

1 lb ground beef
1-2 cups mixed veggies
1 can cream of mushroom soup
6-8 Potatoes, depends on size
1 cup shredded cheese, any kind you like

Brown the beef and dump in the veggies with the meat and add the can of soup. Cook till its warm. In the mean time get your potatoes washed and peeled and cut into smaller cubes so that you can boil them to make fresh potatoes. Once they are soft, drain and put the potatoes back in the pan and mash them up to your liking and add butter and milk. I add sour cream to them and some shredded cheese. Mix the potatoes up. After all that get a casserole dish and put the meat mixture int he bottom eand then top it with the potatoes and add sheddred cheese to the top of the potatoes.
Cook int he oven on 350 degrees for 25-30 min.
And like i said we used chisken instead of ground beef and i only used corn and green beans but all veggies can go in it. We love to mix things up a little.
