Breakfast Egg Muffins ~ 21 Day Fix Approved

Breakfast Egg Muffins ~ 21 Day Fix Approved

I don’t know about you, but I am THAT mom who is always late. I have always been that way, and believe me, I try my hardest to get to places on time. It also happens to be my husbands biggest pet peeve. It is one of the few things we get into a fight about. So come the mornings, I am typically running around like a chicken with it’s head chopped off trying to get the kids dressed, fed, hair and teeth brushed, lunches packed and then getting myself ready. I feel like I run a freaking marathon by…

Grilled Pineapple Rings

Grilled Pineapple Rings

If you haven’t experienced the deliciousness that is grilled fruit, you seriously are missing out! Lucky for you, I’m here. There was a pineapple sitting on my counter for a good week, waiting to ripen. On the day it was ready to carve up, I thought back to that time I went on a grilled pineapple bender. I skewered them, sliced them, diced them and grilled those sweet tarts up. I had turkey burgers planned out for that night and subbed out the avocado for grilled pineapple rings. Boooo-yaaaa! The sweet, charred, delicious rings made a perfect accompaniment to the burgers…

{Slow Cooking} Quinoa Chili

{Slow Cooking} Quinoa Chili

Take a guess as to what’s in the slow cooker… It’s Quinoa Chili! (Did the title give it away?? ) I could eat chili at least once a week. I’d put that shit on everything – hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, veggies, ice cream & salad. OK, OK, maybe not salad…. Experimenting with different ingredients on some of my fave dishes has become a fun past time for me. If my family and friends are reading this, they are most likely scratching their heads in confusion & thinking, “I thought her favorite past time was drinking??!” Yes, it still is but…

Spicy Onions Perfect for BBQs!

BBQ season is officially upon us and what summer wouldn’t be complete without a great new recipe to try out on your friends and family. Every BBQ my family has had while growing up was over the top. I mean, tons of food from steaks, burgers, hot dogs, chicken, sausage – you name it, it was probably grilled and served up! Not only did we stuff our selves beyond content, it usually rained. But it never stopped the fun or the flow of alcohol! My mom has a few staples that she makes that give our BBQs an edge, like these Spicy…

Sauteed Greens with Cannellini Beans

The Anti Mom Blog is goin’ healthy, bitches! I have taken the next steps in making the family a bit more healthier and started a whole new lifestyle change…aka 21 Day Fix. It’s brutal, I’m starving but it’s all for the better of my family and myself. So I am embracing it every container at a time. It ain’t easy and come nighttime, I turn into a particular ‘Gap Girl’. It’s all for a better me, right? OK, with that being said, my brain has been scrambling to make some fresher, filling meals that I could use going forward. That’s…

Homemade Spinach Mac and Cheese

Homemade Spinach Mac and Cheese

  It is no secret that my kids are obsessed with pasta. Mac and cheese to be exact, but they do not discriminate when it comes to pasta. They will eat it anyway, shape or form. I have tried to make it a bit more nutritious like when I add cauliflower to the boxed kind but decided to push the envelope this week and try homemade spinach mac n’ cheese. Success! 1 out 2 enjoyed it thoroughly. A great way to add some iron and pump up plain mac and cheese. I will continue to try and push this on the…

Rustic Chicken Recipe

Rustic Chicken Recipe

We are a chicken family. I’m telling you, we eat so much we may start clucking soon and I’m totally okay with that. My husband and I share a love for cooking and eating, so it’s not rare for him to jump into the kitchen on any given night to try out a recipe he found. Not long ago, he did just this and thinking about it is making my mouth water. He reluctantly told me he was watching Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa and saw her make a delicious roasted rustic chicken with croutons. The way he was raving about…

Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

Healthy Chicken Salad Recipe

  There was a time when I ate chicken salad almost every day. Sure, I may have been pregnant and it was one of the only sandwiches I could eat but that stuff was my jam. Even though I was lazy and pregnant and ordered it from deli’s or Publix most of the time, there were a few instances that I actually made my own. When I did, I tried to make this healthy chicken salad recipe as opposed to the mayo-packed crap I’d get. Needless to say, 10 months of chicken salad pretty much made me take a long…

30-Minute Chicken Sausage with Apples & Onions

  I am all about the easy dinners so anything I can make in 30 minutes or less is a win for me. About a year ago, I was going out one night and decided to be a nice, little wifey and cook my husband dinner before I went out. I know, I know, ‘Wife of the Year’. I found chicken sausage with apples and cooked them up with some apples and onions. I was getting texts all night from him saying how great it was and he still talks about it a year later. So, after many months of…

Greek Salsa + Greek Vinaigrette Recipe

0

    I tend to go through phases in my cuisine. For a while I was into creating Asian-inspired dishes and I have now moved to the Greek Isles. Love me some Greek flavors. I’m currently obsessed with the fabulous flavors that make Greek dishes pop – like fresh oregano. I have been making a cucumber, peppers, tomato and feta cheese salad that I have dubbed ‘Greek Salsa’. We put it over grilled or rotisserie chicken and it’s just awesome. The freshness of the veggies along with the yummy Greek-inspired vinaigrette kicks up boring chicken. Greek Salsa 1/2 large Cucumber…
