Peach Mango Shrimp Quinoa

I can never go to Costco by myself.  Do not let me do it.  When I am by myself at Costco, no one tells me that we don’t need all the extra things I put in my cart.  And no one stops me from eating every single taste test and then buying a couple of these said taste tests. I… Continue reading

Broccoli Fried Rice with Shrimp

Okay, so in full disclosure, I read the recipe title on Running to the Kitchen, saw that it said fried rice, and printed it to make.  I went to make this recipe, and realized it was a Paleo recipe with no grains, so I of course took some of health value out and added rice to the recipe I also… Continue reading

Stuffed Pepper with Shrimp and Casserole

I’ve been going to a bootcamp three times a week, and while it’s amazing, I come home exhausted!  Austin has been wonderful with cooking somewhat regularly at home.  He made this recipe from Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean.  While the recipe only calls for four stuffed pepper, you can definitely make more, or as Austin did– make a little… Continue reading

Pesto BBQ Shrimp Pizza on Flatout Flatbread

I’m here at my parents’ house after an amazing Thanksgiving meal with all my extended family.  We had dinners at each family’s house (our Thanksgiving dinner still had 10 people), and then the whole family met for dessert for a bake-off– can’t wait to share the best recipes next week! On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, we wanted something a little… Continue reading

Baked Flounder with Parmesan Crumbs

Austin cooked again– yay!  We’ve had flounder filets in the freezer for a while, so I took them out to defrost but had no idea what we were going to make.  Austin googled a great recipe from Food & Wine and away he went.  He served this awesome baked flounder over a bed of quinoa (he made the quinoa with chicken… Continue reading

Spinach Calamari Salad

On Thursday nights, we play in an adult rec kickball league.  I love, love, love our team.  I am not the most coordinated person in the world, and playing with my team has made me more confident in my very limited athletic abilities.  I even caught the game-ending kick at one game.  Granted, the ball hit my leg, and I… Continue reading

Pecan-Crusted Mahi Mahi

I love seafood, and we like trying all different kinds of fish.  Trader Joe’s didn’t have any trout (that’s what the original Weight Watchers recipe called for), so we thought mahi mahi would be a great substitution.  It was  This recipe was such a quick and easy dinner; perfect for our busy schedule!And in some weight loss news, there is nothing exciting going… Continue reading

Seafood Pesto Pasta Salad

I love checking out other blogs on the internet and seeing what recipes that look yummy to me.  This is one of those recipes.  Pasta-check!  Pesto-check! Well, you get the idea…I loved almost the ingredients!  The original recipe from Damn Delicious had tuna instead of the seafood mix.  I like tuna, but I found a great seafood mix at Trader… Continue reading

Grilled Flounder with Pineapple

As you can imagine, when I buy food, I generally buy in bulk or at least large frozen packages.  Our most recent fish purchase was flounder (remember Flounder Wraps?), so when we decided to use this amazing summer recipe from Weight Watchers, we substituted flounder for halibut.  I think any white fish would be really tasty with the marinade.  The… Continue reading
