Almond Flour Waffles

It’s a rare occurrence in our household to make a “big” breakfast. Our breakfast usually consist of something quick and easy since both of us are out the door before 7 am.

Roasted Chicken

Quinoa and Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Stuffed peppers never excited me until recently. I usually found them bland and boring. I also didn’t like having my entire meal inside a pepper. It just didn’t fly. However, I was inspired one morning while watching a cooking show and I decided to give them a try. For the first time, I was going…

Spaghetti Squash with Turkey Sausage and Broccoli Rabe
