Steamy Creamy Squash Packet

My daughter’s favorite veggie (well, second favorite if we count tomatoes) is zucchini. During the summer months, we grill up zucchini and summer squash regularly, and she devours it like she’s never getting another meal. So it has become a standard ingredient around our house, and I love finding new, creative ways to use it. … Continue reading

Sun-Dried Tomato Shrimp Salad

I just have to admit up front … I can claim absolutely NO credit for this recipe. It is from the TSFL Lean & Green Cookbook. But it was so yummy that I just had to pass it along. If you are following this program and don’t have this recipe book yet, you really should … Continue reading
