Eggplant Pizza


Yep! It’s pizza night in our house…but I am not having your typical pizza. No ingredients list needed here today.

Take one eggplant, slice it up and bake slices on a baking sheet for 20 minutes at 250°F to dry them out. Then broil on low for 5 minutes on each side. Top with your favorite pizza toppings and then bake again at 450°F for 12 minutes.

I used spinach, marinara, mozzarella, chicken breast, chicken sausage links, onion, garlic, yellow pepper and mushrooms.

Seafood and Veggie Curried Rice



I can’t believe I keep forgetting to flavor my rice. Plain rice is so boring. This garlic infused curry rice is amazing. Topped with flavorful shrimp, cod and veggies makes it a match made in heaven. My husband said this rice dish was better than any other rice dish I have made. Whoa! And it takes a lot to impress this guy. He called it and I quote “a top 5 dish!”

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Poached Eggs


My new motto is “top it with an egg.” I have recently become obsessed with eggs and that’s why this dish appealed to me from the get go. I was a little scared of the sweet potato as I am truly not a fan. Once all of these flavors got married together it was perfection. The salty Queso Fresco topped the potato as well as sautéed garlic, sweet onion, yellow peppers and black beans. Topped with lime infused arugula and a runny poached egg dripping down the side with goodness. Unfortunately, my husband was not a fan so I won’t be making it for him again! If you don’t like sweet potato, I think a red potato was do just as good.
