Friday Night This weekend started with shopping at Costco on Friday afternoon. $500 poof. Gone. Bye bye. For dinner was mini won tons in a chicken stock with kale and green onions. When we got home I cooked a huge pot of chicken stock with leftover chicken bones from making butter chicken spaghetti squash boats. This was dinner. Dinner made or planned by Alex miracle didn’t happen this week or weekend at all. I’m not sure I am even mad at this point anymore.

Who am I to talk about traditional Indian dishes but oh, I will go there. Prepare to be amazed. If my Ukrainian grandma could make a chicken curry with sour cream, onions and curry powder back in the 90s, why can’t I make some butter chicken and spaghetti squash pretending squash is pasta?! Haha, let’s be clear spaghetti squash doesn’t replace spaghetti but tastes very good. By the way, grandma’s curry was DELISH! Not original but a tasty healthy meal really has no rules to it. Too many…

Quote of the Day: If Mr.Trump can be a president, why can’t you be healthy!? No, seriously?! Think about it. Your health is totally up to you. I am starting new series of links I come across on Internet that I think would be useful for your health. I don’t read a ton because I simply don’t have time, so if I read something it means it is really useful. Stuff worth 20 minutes of my time. No, seriously. Think of what Trump has achieved (politics aside) and Trump…

My Monday morning was unrolling so lovely. I was looking forward to working on these slow cooker porcupine meatballs post after posting my first ever What I Ate Weekend post. Kids were up early due to a time change. No rain. Laundry in. Lovely. Everything was going lovely. I even texted Alex how lovely our weekend was (we even started a 1000 piece puzzle which I think I’m the only one excited about, girls vs. boys) and how blessed we are. Amen. A beeping noise from upstairs and our…

I’m starting new series due to a popular demand from a reader’s survey and due to just plain common sense. So many of us (including me) have no problem eating clean during the week but Friday night rolls in and our guards are down. I mean we are just simply tired. I get it. My hopes for these series are that if you see what I eat on weekends it will give you an idea how to structure your meals without waking up on Monday morning beating yourself…

Originally posted Dec, 2015 I have put in a lot of sweat and brain power into these 55 clean eating dinner recipes to make them fast and clean eating. I’m a great cook (yes, I will own it and won’t be shy) and a girlfriend of mine is a fabulous one too. Just a few days ago, we had a conversation how each dinner is a full-blown strategy making it fast, light enough for a mom, filling for a dad and the one that kids will like. Preferably with some…

Seriously, THANK YOU SO MUCH for filling out the reader’s survey (you can still do it – I’m still reading). It was so much fun to read your responses since it is mostly me who is talking here. On the weekend, one of my son’s coaches got hit with a puck and it fractured his jaw. POOR GUY, no doubt. He needs a surgery as he couldn’t talk all weekend. But sad things aside, the minute I saw him I thought to myself Alex would like me not talking for a few days. He wouldn’t wish…

Oh, hey, hey, hey. I need your help. Pretty, pretty, pretty please. Just 10 questions. 5 minutes. And you are done! The reason for this survey is simple – I would love to make iFOODreal better for you and me (like could it get any better?!). Food blogging world is such a dynamic place and I feel like honestly I have fallen a bit behind. Kids, more kids, and more kids. I used to learn so much and I loved it. And now I feel like kids get priority and…

Ah, nothing feels better this morning than eating two (or three) sweet potato oatmeal muffins, with a cup of coffee (yes!) after sending boys to school. My breakfast made yesterday (or two-ten days ago) with oats and sweet potato. Workout done yesterday. Kids walked to school. I’m still in PJ’s. Seriously, I am in my days of mom glory and there is no going back. Yesterday I did something very much outside of my comfort zone. Life changing. It is a surprise about which you will hear early…

I didn’t think stuffed pepper casserole cooked in a slow cooker for hours could be possible. I just didn’t know what would happen to the brown rice. But I got so many questions on my lazy man cabbage rolls recipe from readers asking if it can be cooked in a slow cooker that I had to try. I will attempt the lazy cabbage rolls in a slow cooker one day but for now I was craving unstuffed bell peppers casserole. In a sense, both dishes are similar – meat,…
