Sesame Crusted Fish Tacos with Avocado S...
So, here we have meal #2 from the Cuizoo Arsenal.  I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting one done per day, but I’ll try to keep these coming as frequently as possible.  I know I’ll be cooking tonight, but once the weekend hits, I don’t make any promises as cooking cuts into...
Garlicky Bread Salad with Heirloom Tomat...
I was having a conversation with a friend the other day lamenting the fact that I have had nothing to post because my summer cooking has been so simple — and really not recipe worthy.  How can I legitimately write a recipe for tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil?  Or chicken on the grill? Or lightly...
Grilled Mexican Corn...
In our house, we love the movie Nacho Libre.  Of course it is silly, but it is also heartwarming and touching in many ways (with a great soundtrack too).  Thankfully, most of it is safe for children because it is one of their favorites — but I am a little liberal when it comes to movies. Every...
Whole Wheat Macaroni and Cheese...
It’s only been recently that I have been able to crack open a box of mac and cheese and cook it for my kids.  I’ve always had to make it from scratch with soy cheese/soy milk because my daughter was severely allergic to dairy (which she has thankfully outgrown).  And somehow when you get...
Manicotti with Whole Wheat Crepes...
I loved to cook as a kid.  I remember one particular cookbook that my mom had that featured recipes made with brand name products.  It was at least two inches thick — and I was pretty convinced that each recipe was magic.  Even if the main ingredient was Stove Top Stuffing.  I guess the corporate...
Whole Wheat Cheese Straws...
Whenever we have friends over, I am always lacking in hors d’oeuvres.  I usually get so in over my head with a main dish and a dessert that I am lucky to put some cheese and crackers out.  I’ll blame it on the fact that everyone in my house is a slob.  Including me.  So if I can pull...
Sprouted Wheat “Enchiladas”...
This meal was one of those “fly by the seat of my pants” moments.  I have many of those.   It highlights one of those go-to ingredients that allow you to have a quick and easy family dinner:  tortillas or wraps.  With a few leftovers and a few simple ingredients, you are on your way to...
Making Pizza … Whole Grain Spicy S...
I love making pizza with the kids.  Number one, they are always psyched to hear that pizza is on the dinner menu which means we can skip the overly dramatic groans.  Number two, they love to help — and  giving them the ability to make their own dinner is a skill that might come in handy moving...
