Consider Making Mom Dinner With This Easy Mini-Lasagna Recipe

I love the taste of lasagna, but the fact that we’re currently training for the half marathon  has us watching what we eat to keep the weight down. When I found this recipe that is made in muffin tins with those little won ton wrappers instead of thick lasagna noodles I though I’d give it a try. They are fabulous and I made them for my sister and brother in law who immediately asked for the recipe and will be making it regularly. You want easy to make and easy to share? This is it!

My Secret Running Energy While Training For Grandma’s Half Marathon

My husband and I have been training to run Grandma's Half Marathon.  The weather hasn't cooperated and I'm not a treadmill kinda girl.  I haven't really been "in to it".  You have to be in the healthy mindset, so I"m grateful for the Northland Community Wellness Day and Essentia Health.  I'm sure it's all in my mind, but these Energy Bites have been a healthy God send.  They're easy to make, keep well and super yummy!

How Is Bragg Liquid Aminos Good For You? [Recipe]

I've seen the bottles of Bragg's Liquid Aminos on the tables at Duluth Grill and we have a friend who is vegan and uses it, but until I tried a recipe that called for it, I didn't touch it.  Ken Hayes has been searching for it (don't ask) and much to his shock I told him I had a bottle.  It will now be his bottle, but not before I explain what it is and give you my yummy recipe.

Can You Help With Advice On Starter Seeds And Garden Planting [Bonus Recipe]

My husband decided late in the Spring to start a garden last year. I told him it would be all him since I kill air ferns (who knew they needed water too, I thought they just needed air!) However, I felt horrible guilty when the garden began to reap a harvest and I had nothing to do with it but make the salads and/or cook the vegetables. They were delicious, it saved on our grocery bill and I know it was loads healthier. This year he decided to start earlier and use the starter seeds pictured above, have you used these?

Doctored Mashed Potatoes That Will Wow You

My mother always made real potatoes, that's what my father wanted, that's what he got.  I never tasted instant potatoes or potato buds until recently.  Wow!  They're fast, but I can't help feeling like I'm cheating the family out of real potatoes.  Then, I tried this recipe suggestion and I call it a "flavored" side dish now and it's super easy.

Cool Northland Temps Entice Me To Try An Amish Chicken Corn Soup Recipe

My favorite season is Summer, there's no denying it.  I like the warmer temps, wearing skorts when I run and the seemingly everlasting daylight.  But, I also like to make soups, hot dishes, bake and try new recipes.  For those activities, the cooler Fall weather is best.  This Taste of Home recipe that includes cream corn and butter caught my eye, I tried it and it was fantastic!

When You Go Fishing & You Get Skunked, You Can Always Count On Salmon Patty Sandwiches

Add one more time to the list where I couldn't catch enough fish for dinner.   It's actually happened to the same friend and I three times now.  We promised we will never plan on it again, as it's always been the worse fishing.  We went out to a lake where we have always walked away with fish, and this time we didn't walk away with any keepers.  But that's ok!  We planned a back up.  Salmon patties!

Finally, A ‘Lite’ Margarita Mix That Doesn’t Taste Terrible, Scales Review

I love margaritas, but I have a hard time with the fact that they are packed with sugar.  So much so that your average margarita is 350-500 calories.  Get a big enough one and it's the equivalent of eating a stack of candy bars.   Sometimes when I'm out shopping I'll try a new low calorie option to see how it goes.   Up until now, they've all tasted pretty terrible.  This time I tried the more expensive mix called "Scales."

My National Salad Month Tip: Go for the Flat Bags of Lettuce [Recipe]

May is National Salad Month and a great time for me to share a recipe and a tip if you purchase pre-cut, pre-washed lettuce in bags.  Some people are leery of the bags of lettuce because of the outbreak of Listeriosis.  Still, they are one of the most purchased pre-packaged food at the grocery store, which suggests we will push fear aside for convenience. Here's a tip that will help you pick the freshest package.
