I made Spicy Orange Chicken Skewers and my mom made a delicious cauliflower side that taste like a nutty rice pilaf without the carbs!

This weekend, roomie requested that I make chicken enchiladas again.  Even though I’m not eating dairy and carbs this week, I decided to make them anyway so I could share the recipe with all of you that has become a household favorite.  Healthier Creamy Chicken Enchiladas (serves 2) Filling: 2 large chicken breasts (raw, cut [...]

I may have a photo shoot coming up, so for the next two weeks, I’m doing my best to eat extra clean.  The thing with cooking and dieting is that if the food tastes so good, you keep wanting more bites until you are overly stuffed (case study: Cheesecake Factory dessert).  With my recipes, I [...]
