im BACK!

well, well, well it feels good to be back! 🙂 I haven’t posted a blog in 2….3…5 months,which felt like a year. Who knew learning the whole gluten-free diet would take this long? After months or reading & learning I’m pretty confident that I have mastered the diet…LOTS of meats & veggies. I must say that I have found a love for gluten-free pasta, it tastes exactly like wheat pasta to me now. I’m still testing out new products to see what brands I like the best so that I know for the future. My mom was at an organic store last week & was kind enough to pick me up all sorts of goodies… GF bagels, english muffins, pizzas, oats ETC. can’t wait to try them out! ANYWAY enough about gluten, last week at the grocery I came across a HUGE bag of shrimp on sale…score! After searching for a new recipes to try I came across Black Bean, Corn & Shrimp Salad on the website & I decided to try it!

What you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • 3/4 cup bottled salsa
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

YIELD: 4 servings (serving size: 1/3 cup shrimp and about 2/3 cup bean mixture)

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Combine first 2 ingredients in a large bowl. Add shrimp; toss to coat.

Coat pan with cooking spray. Add shrimp; sauté 3 minutes or until done. Add 1 tablespoon lime juice. Remove shrimp from pan.

Add corn to pan; sauté 1 minute.

Stir in salsa,  and beans; cook 30 seconds or until thoroughly heated. Stir in 1 tablespoon lime juice.

Recipe adapted from

Not much has changed with me over the last couple months, except for our Boston Terrier Mimi passing away 😦 She became sick so unexpectedly, we were heart-broken. No dog will ever replace her, she was truly the BEST xoxo

Love MIMI, miss her everyday ❤

As hard as it was to think about a new dog, we decided it was only right to take in another Boston Terrier and show it the same love we showed Mimi ❤

Well, that sums up my last 5 months...boring I know 😉 Hope everyone is well & Happy FRIDAY!! 😀

Classic Comfort.

Tonight I wanted to make something quick & easy, so I decided to make a classic turkey meatloaf! A turkey meatloaf is a quick because all you do is mix the ingredients together & then bake for an hour. (For even faster… you can prepare the meat mixture the night before and leave it in the fridge & put it right in the oven when you get home from work.) I chose corn on the cob as a side, but mashed potatoes would go great. I just didn’t have the time.
What you will need:

  • 2lbs of ground turkey
  • Salt/Pepper
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of mustard
  • 1/2 shredded cheese

Preheat oven at 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in bowl except the cheese.

After meat mixture is all mixed together, place mixture into a baking dish and form together tightly. Make an indent on the top of the meat and sprinkle the cheese in the middle.

Next boil a pot of water for the corn on the cob.

Let corn cook for 25 minutes and let the meatloaf cook in the oven for an hour.

Remove meatloaf from oven & let cool for one minute.

Time to eat!
