Weekly Recap – August 19, 2012

Hi Everyone,

I must admit this Saturday was a lazy Saturday!  I’ve been fighting off a cold this week that I must have picked up from Las Vegas.  I have been stuffy, coughing, sore throat and hard to breath. So needles to say I will be resting this weekend!!  I wanted to go for a hike and do lots of cooking but I haven’t done a thing.  I should get my rest since I have another busy week ahead of me.

For this weeks recipe recaps:

Monday – Three Pepper Roasted Hummus  – As we speak I am nibbling on what I have left of my Hummus.  This is a good, thick healthy hummus that I will be sure to make again!!

Tuesday – Chicken Fajita Quesadilla – This is my go to in a pinch dinner.  I love it!  I have to admit it’s one of my favorite meals.

Wednesday – Tomato and Zucchini Bake – This makes for a wonderful side dish to accompany almost any meal.  Even my Husband liked it, but it could be because I added some pepperoni to his.

Thursday – Chicken and Vegetable Shish Kabobs – This makes for a wonderful quick meal.  The chicken is so tender and the flavor is mighty delish!! I love eating food cooked on a stick!  🙂

Thursday – Grilled Haricot Very French Green Beans with Slivered Almonds – Boy the name of this recipe is a mouthful!  This was the first time I ever grilled beans and I just love  it!  It added a little different flavor to them.  This dish accompanied my Chicken Shish Kabobs.

Friday – Tomato Pizza Pie – This meal quite surprised me!  The flavor was unbelievable and I can’t believe my Husband loved it!  We ate the whole pie for dinner, so worth it!!  I can’t wait to make this again!!

After looking back at this weeks recipes, I sure was pretty good on my eating habits.  But I’m thinking I need a sweet dessert to make.  Any recommendations on what I should make that I can try to make a little more healthier?  Any cookies, muffins or cakes?  Just let me know!!

Well my Pretties, that’s all I have for you today!  But this week I have a bunch of new recipes, for which I plan on making soon so I can share them with you!

Have a wonderful rest of the weekend and a great week!



P.S.  My Husband for the first time tried the Skinny Vanilla Mocha and he loved it!  But because he’s a sweet guy, I added some chocolate syrup to his whip cream!  He asked me about it, so how could I not make it for him?  Of course I made one for me too, without the chocolate syrup!  🙂


  1. I’ve had the same problem with a cold – but sadly minus the Vegas trip! Your week looks delicious, love that pizza pie from yesterday! Very yummy looking

  2. I’ll be making a ‘scrap pie’ with peaches and blackberries for dessert tonight. It’s not in the actual shape of a pie, nor do you use a pie dish. It’s pretty simple and tastes delicious!! some people call them a Galette, I think that’s the name anyways!

  3. Oh no I hope you feel better soon. Have a lazy Sunday too! 🙂

  4. You had a delicious week, Jen! Hope you feel better soon.

    PS…I’m the wrong person to ask about healthier desserts…LOL

  5. All look so delicious!
    Hope you feel better quick.
    And I love how you got your husband to eat his veggies. 😉 haha.

  6. Everything you made looks fab! I am really drooling about that pizza pie!

  7. Hope you feel better soon! 🙂

  8. I found your blog while reading another one ‘Sweet Tooth Sweet Life’ and I was impressed with what I found. Your story is so inspiring!

    I also love the picture of the Kabob’s! They look so delicious!
