January Menu

The holidays are finally over and gone.  I don't know about you, but I am looking forward to getting back to "normal" around here, and one of the first places I'd like to start is with my diet.

Not only did I take some time off from blogging during the holidays, but I also took some time off of watching my caloric intake.  Hello, Christmas sugar cookies! 

This month's menu is packed with whole grains, lean meats, and lots of low-fat substitutions.  Surely this will help you stay on track with your New Year's resolution, right?!

Happy Cooking!  The grocery list will be coming soon...a.k.a.  when the 2yr old gives me a break.

Please feel free to drop me a line and say hello.  You can also find me on Facebook at   



Playgroup Granola Bars- These are so good, they may never make it to your freezer! 

Whole Grain Waffles


Lentil & Sweet Potato Stew- This one is Gluten Free too!

Zydeco Stomp Gumbo- Just be sure to add the shrimp on the day you are eating it. 


Amazing Pork Tenderloin- Pork Tenderloins are too lean to put in a crock pot- use a Pork Tenderloin Roast and you will have better flavor and conserve costs.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole- Add brown rice instead of white rice for extra nutrition. 

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken- Just like BBQ pulled pork, but with chicken.  YUM!

Pizza Casserole- A great place to sneak in some extra veggies. 

Chicken Enchiladas

Maple Garlic Pork Tenderloin

Jenny's Grilled Chicken Breasts- Add to Salad for a Grilled Chicken Salad, or serve with green veggies to make an extra healthy dinner.

Love the new recipes. If I freeze the casseroles and enchiladas, how much cook time should I add?

after the bread recipe, i'm going to thoroughly read through your blog for others! just wondering if the playgroup granola bars are your recipe or not. if not, do you modify it at all? thx!
