    Healthy Egg Salad

    Okay, would you believe if I literally said I randomly whipped up this healthy egg salad and fell in love? It is true. I’ve been brainstorming for days of Arabic inspired dishes and kept drawing a blank. Then, I was in the kitchen wanting to make some boiled eggs. I saw labneh sitting in my fridge and thought this would be a fantastic substitute for mayo. And it just went from there! That is how I came up with this delicious healthy egg salad!

    Cauliflower Puree

    Monday night, I made my slow cooked pot roast recipe again and I wanted to pair it with something creamy!

This recipe turned out super delicious, creamy and worked perfectly with dinner as a side. It is not quite as thick as mashed potato but more of a puree.

Well lately, my husband and I have been cutting down on red meat and I figured let me try to work with ground chicken. You guys, it came out great and I went and bought it again this week! This recipe is super simple and delicious too. Servings: approx. 25…

    Creamy Garlic Mushroom Chicken

    Hi my lovely friends! Happy Monday 🙂 Lets make this week a great one! So, as of yesterday, my husband and I decided to try Keto. For those who don’t know what Keto is, its basically an extremely low carb diet and a majority of the food eaten is good fat and the rest is protein. This type of diet will allow our body to go into a metabolic process called ketosis in which our body will burn the fat instead of glucose since there isn’t any sugar. In result, you will lose weight and supposedly have more energy a few weeks into it. This creamy garlic mushroom chicken one…
