If you are all turkey-ed out after the Thanksgiving Day feast, then today’s recipe is for you! I put together this Roasted Cranberry Balsamic Chicken Recipe as a tasty and festive alternative to turkey for holiday dinners. Truthfully, I’m not a big fan of turkey. And neither is most of my family. But we serve it every year because…well…tradition.

Pumpkin Alfredo

Pumpkin Alfredo Recipe – 7 Points

With the weather FINALLY starting to cool down, I’m in a constant state of comfort food craving. And a rich, creamy, fettuccini alfredo recipe was exactly what I wanted last week. Now, typically, I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin, or pumpkin flavored foods and drinks. But I had this one can of pure pumpkin on hand, and I wanted to find something to incorporate it in. Considered it’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients, I thought it might be a great way to give my fettuccini alfredo a healthy boost.

Chickpea and Sumac Salad

Chickpea and Sumac Salad Recipe – 1 Point

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the diversity of foods and restaurants. Growing up in PA, my diet was pretty American standard. But after moving to Los Angeles, a whole new world of foods and flavors was opened to me, and I’ve never been happier. Middle Eastern foods are almost always a hit with me, and after dining at a Turkish restaurant recently, I discovered this super simple, yet incredibly flavorful Chickpea and Sumac Salad Recipe.

Mango Salsa

Chips and salsa are a pretty popular snack in my house. The whole family is a fan, and we find ourselves snacking on it very regularly. When I’m busy, I’ll rely on store bought salsa, but when I have the time, there is nothing more amazing than freshly prepared, homemade salsa. Recently, I whipped up a mango salsa that was total perfection.

I’ve really been trying hard to minimize grains from my diet. I just feel a lot better, and have a lot less cravings when I don’t eat them. So most of meals are packed with meats and vegetables.

First of all, the the convenience of a pre-packaged broccoli slaw mix is such a game changer.

Well, my favorite team didn’t make it to the Super Bowl (so close, though!), but that doesn’t mean I won’t partake in Super Bowl festivities!
