Sweet & Spicy Asian Marinated Steak with Herb Butter

When it comes to romance, I am not the best at expressing myself with words. But put me in the kitchen and I’ll show you how I really feel. I’ll slave over something all day if I think it’ll win over your heart but at the same time, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that don’t keep me chained to the oven yet will still produce the same result. Take this steak for example, the night before you whip up the herb butter and throw the steaks in the marinade. The next day all you gotta do is cook the steaks for 4 minutes total (or more if you prefer no-pink), top it with the herb butter and watch it melt. You will instantly win the hearts of every single taste bud and you didn’t have to sacrifice quality time by being in the kitchen. (Served with Voodoo Chef RED rub roasted green beans)

Chocolate Greek Yogurt Blossom Cookies

Add protein to your cookies with these chocolate Greek yogurt blossoms. Then top them with sprinkles and even more chocolate. Because protein can be pretty too.

Well folks, I finally joined a gym. While LA Fitness is closest to where I live and OSU is obviously where I work, I splurged on the more expensive option, Lifetime Fitness. It’s close enough to where I live to still go on the weekends, convenient to go on my way to/from work, and has everything I could ever ask for in a gym (which is why I was a member of it in Memphis as well). On my first day back in a real gym since Christmas, I tried out Reformer Pilates. I’ve done pilates before but it was just on a mat and typically a fusion of pilates and yoga (piyo). Reformers are those torture looking devices but it was actually kind of cool and I plan on going to some more sessions. The only downside is that it is one of the few classes not included with membership. Thankfully you get a certain amount of credits to use for such things upon signing up which means I will be doing just that, at least until I run out and then it’ll depend on how addicted I am to it.

Now that we’ve talked about the gym, it’s time to talk about some cookies because we’ve earned it. After suscessfully substituting Greek yogurt for cream cheese in one of my favorite blossom cookie recipes, I tampered again by adding come cocoa powder giving you chocolate Greek yogurt blossom cookies. Since there’s a certain holiday coming up involving a lot of heart shaped things in red and pink I went ahead and rolled them in festive sprinkles and pressed a strawberry creme swirled Dove chocolate into the center. The chocolate even had sometimes cute, sometimes corny phrases inside their wrappers.

Easy Chicken Curry

Need an easy chicken curry recipe in a hurry? Throw together this yellow chicken curry dish with potato, carrot, and onion for a quick weeknight meal.

Easy Chicken Curry

Evidently, a year ago I had already busted out the eggnog in my baking. I can barely wrap my head around the fact that it is December already let alone bust out the eggnog. Did you know that this time last year I was only 10 days away from graduating with my PhD? I had already defended and passed my dissertation in September but awaited the ceremonial part. Maybe I should plan something special for my 1 year graduation anniversary… more of that later.

Let’s make curry. This recipe is fairly quick and easy, making it a good weeknight meal. Just don’t do what I did and completely forget to add the onions. While eating it I sat there pondering why it didn’t taste quite right, as if something was missing. Oh look there’s the onion I was supposed to chop up and cook in it. And you better believe I cooked up that onion and stirred it in. I have to admit however, that this was not my favorite curry recipe. It was pretty good but I think it would have been better if I had made it with coconut milk. The evaporated milk just didn’t have the depth of flavor I was looking for, so next time I will try coconut milk and have reflected this option in the ingredients.

Breakfast Nachos with Greek Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce

Is it breakfast for dinner, or dinner for breakfast? Enjoy these breakfast nachos any time of day with a homemade Greek yogurt hollandaise sauce.

Breakfast Nachos with Greek Yogurt Hollandaise Sauce 1

I have a confession to make. You know that egg dish commonly cooked for breakfast that starts with an “O”? Well I have been misspelling it my entire life. I have been spelling it phonetically as “omlet” and I swear I must have seen it written as such before or else it would not have been solidified in my brain. How many times have I ordered that dish at a restaurant and not noticed the spelling? News flash! It’s spelled “omelette” which in my opinion has too many e’s. Although upon further digging is appears that it may also be spelled “omelet” which is more tolerable. Unfortunately I was not consulted when they were working out the English language.

Today I did not make an omelet/omelette/omlet or however you want to spell it. I made nachos because today is national nachos day, and why not start celebrating early with nachos for breakfast. It’s not an omelet but it is breakfast food that involves eggs, cheese, and bacon. Oh and a homemade hollandaise sauce made with Greek yogurt.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Mix up this delicious smoothie with dark chocolate, peanut butter, banana, Greek yogurt, milk, and oats. Tastes like dessert without the guilt.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie 1

Between my adventures in Seattle and now LA I have not been eating all that healthy, not that I am complaining because it’s been delicious. To add to the food fest, last night my nephew Luke went trick or treating for the first time and I managed to sneak a couple pieces for myself (while adoring the cutest tool box on the face of the earth). And now today is college football-food day. I decided to mix up a slightly healthier peanut butter and chocolate recipe to balance out all the rest and feel slightly less guilty. I am also making up for the break in my gym work out schedule by lifting babies. Maybe some crunches with my newest nephew Griffin on my stomach or kicking my feet while big brother Luke sits on my feet. Quality time and a work out!

Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt Mousse

Fluffy mousse made with pumpkin spice Greek yogurt is a great way to end a fall day. Serve with a spiced cookie.

Pumpkin Spice Mousse 2

Holy food coma. Peabody has outdone herself giving Kita and I a foodie/root beer tour of Seattle and I’m not sure if I will ever be hungry again. Doughnuts, fresh Greek yogurt, burgers, lab-style cocktails, Greek food, short ribs, bread pudding, and more pastries galore. I even spent $100 on root beer yesterday, 43 bottles of root beer that I somehow didn’t already have in my collection of 108. Yea, I think I made that root beer store owner’s day. Eventually I plan to post some pictures recapping this adventure but for now let’s take a gander at some mousse. Pumpkin spiced Greek yogurt mousse in fact decorated with chocolate dipped speculoos cookies made out to look like graves because Halloween is this Friday.

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Yogurt Covered Pretzels

It’s another #PBChocSat and #10DaysofTailgate mash up! And yet again another pretzel combination. I did not do that on purpose but evidently I have been craving the sweet and salty combo of peanut butter, pretzels, and chocolate. Thankfully that goes well with tailgating.

Today’s sweet treat may not be considered a healthy option but it is made with Greek yogurt. Any health benefits from the yogurt is cancelled out with the copious amounts of sugar used to create the coating. But feel free to convince yourself that they are not as bad for you, because that’s what I did as I nearly devoured the entire stock of them in one sitting.
