Farmer's Market Frittata

June 27, 2017 by Nicole Collins Today's recipe is inspired by someone who really loves me. Like, “chops up mushrooms in to teeny tiny pieces so that I don't know they're there” loves me. It all started with my friend, Sultan. I've talked to you a little before about my journey on the 21 day fix plan. Well, I got Sultan to go on that journey with me. Like me, carbs were hard for her to cut down on. But, she made a real effort to make sure that she was starting her day with hearty delicious breakfasts that didn't need to be loaded with sugars and breads. She couldn't just stick to greek yogurt and a banana every day before work like I do. So, she played around with different egg combos. She st

Southwest Turkey Breakfast Hash

June 23, 2017 by Nicole Collins I'm a breakfast for dinner kind of gal through and through. Today's recipe is the perfect candidate for just that activity. I've always been a little backwards when it came to my eating habits. There have been many days in my past (and my present) where I've eaten tuna sandwiches or cold fried chicken for breakfast, and then had scrambled eggs for dinner. In fact, I pretty much eat breakfast for dinner a minimum of once per week. I LOVE IT! My mind is anywhere but on dinner today, though. I've got a looooooooooong day of baking ahead of me. You see, somehow, I thought it would be a good idea to volunteer to make 140 cupcakes and a small two tiered wedding cake

Somewhere on a Beach Smoothie

June 19, 2017 by Nicole Collins I'm already not feeling Monday today, so I'm taking us to the beach. Ok, maybe not literally. But, by the time you finish drinking today's smoothie, that's where you'll think you are. Does anyone else feel like last week was the longest week in history? I don't know why. It just seemed never ending. And, everyone I said that too seemed to agree. But, somehow, someway, the weekend was over in a blink of an eye. How does that happen? I spent the weekend playing with power tools. I KNOW! Well, nothing crazy. Just a cordless drill and an electric hand saw. I'm still undecided if I should be trusted with said power tools, because I did walk away from the weekend wi

Single Serve Chocolate Nicecream

June 17, 2017 by Nicole Collins I promised you a sweet recipe today, and I'm going to deliver. But, I also promised you that we were going to eat healthy for a little while. And, I'm not breaking that promise either! A couple of weeks ago, my friend Kelli was in town for a wedding; and she asked me to babysit her son, Grant. Now, confession time for a sec. I used to babysit all of the time in my teenage years. But as an adult, the only lives that I've had to be responsible for are canine ones (and myself, of course). I was a little nervous about how I was going to keep a 1 ½ year old alive and entertained at the same time. So, I decided to stick with what I know, and I came up with the gamep

Shrimp Stuffed Poblano Peppers

June 13, 2017 by Nicole Collins It's Taco Tuesday! But, we're celebrating in a different kind of way today. I was thinking the other day about what life would be like if every day of the week had a Mexi inspired meal plan. Let's just say I was thinking outside of the Taco Tuesday box. Here's what I came up with: Margarita Monday. Taco Tuesday (can't mess with the classic). White Queso Wednesday. Taquito Thursday. Fajita Friday. Sangria Saturday. And Sunday, can be our day of rest. What do you think? Think we could make that a thing? I totally think we could start a revolution... Anyways, I need you all to think a little outside of the Taco Tuesday box with me today. Because, here's what we'r

Strawberry Fields Salad with Avocado Poppyseed Dressing

June 9, 2017 by Nicole Collins This is my favorite time of year to eat. I am so IN LOVE with the fresh produce that you can get from the start of spring through the end of summer. In truth, if I could survive without eating all through fall or winter, I would. I get so sad with the strawberries, and watermelon, and corn on the cob, and cantaloupe, and all the other amazing summer fruits and veggies go out of season. I'm not much of a root veggie or squash fan, so end of the year produce is depressing to me. I mean, sure. I'm not going to turn my nose up at a piece of pumpkin pie, but that's what the canned stuff is for. Give me summer produce all year long! As much as I love fruit (except or

Veggie Wrap

June 5, 2017 by Nicole Collins We're going on a healthy streak! I'm generally a pretty healthy eater, but I feel like the past couple of weeks I've fallen off the wagon. Between vacations and holidays, I've eaten a lot of delicious things. There's no doubt about that. But I've probably had more sweets and carbs in the past month than I've had all year. Oops. In fact, I actually made another one of those Cookie Butter Pies to take to a friend's house on Saturday. For anyone keeping track, that's the second pie in the course of one week. #sorrynotsorry So, I'm getting my life right, and I'm turning over a new leaf. I'm committing the next couple of recipes I share with you will be totally good

Cookie Butter Pie

June 1, 2017 by Nicole Collins Would you say that being a grownup is everything you thought it would be? I don’t think I would. As kids, most of us can’t wait to grow up. We think, “When I’m a grown up, I’ll stay up as late as I want.” Or “I’m going to eat cookies and cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.” “No one can tell me what to do when I’m a grown up.” Oh how young and dumb we were. In reality, I find myself begging to be able to go to bed at 9pm, “Uncle Sam” tells me what to do, and I can’t even look at a slice of cake without gaining a pound. That’s the life of a responsible adult anyway. One night, I was on my friend, Jen-enifer’s, boat; and we decided that after a long day of boat
