Pepita Crusted Tilapia & Tomatillo Sauce {with Cilantro Smashed Potatoes}

by Chrissy

Pepita Crusted Tilapia with Cilantro Potatoes_LYK5

These cilantro smashed potatoes were a complete accident but now happen to be a new favorite dish. They are like mashed taters but not super rich and creamy, but super flavorful with a kick of spice so they pair perfectly with this lightly breaded fish.

You could certainly serve this Tilapia with a side of roasted veggies, if you are trying to eat a lighter meal, but you’ll be missing out on all the fun!

I know, I know.

While Chrissy and I took a stroll to get a couple of late afternoon cappuccinos, the chicken curry was simmering away in the slow cooker. When we returned, the house smelled … Read more...

The Three “C” Granola {Coconut, Chia Seed, & Cranberry}

by Lauren

granola

It’s been a while since we’ve made you granola.  A little too long I’d say.

When it comes to breakfast, we’ve been on an oatmeal kick, but I’m making a change now that the weather is finally warming up.

I was scared at first because I got so tired of yogurt last year. It began upsetting my stomach (sometimes dairy and I don’t get along) and just wasn’t doing the trick for a satisfying meal. I’m ready to try again … Read more...

Jicama Tuna Salad_LYK1

Tuna salad is a great thing to prepare ahead of time for meals or snacks through the week.

It can be put in a sandwich, thrown on a salad, scooped up with celery sticks or piled on toast and topped with melted cheese.

These are all such great options for a variety of meals.

I always use albacore tuna. I feel like it’s less fishy, and more substantial.

And for this recipe, I used jicama. Why, you ask? It’s simple … Read more...
