Healthy Baked Parmesan Fries

So, when I made the homemade fish sticks for my last post, my meat-and-potatoes-loving husband was way more excited about the side dish: baked french fries. So I decided I should do a separate post for the fries. I actually make these baked fries all the time and here are the…

Crispy Lemon and Parmesan Fish Sticks

Today, for fun: a modern makeover for the much-loved, retro, American favorite: fish sticks! The 1950’s/60’s version: fried, heavily breaded, and highly processed fish sticks. My 2012 Scrumptious Pumpkin version: wild-caught whitefish fillets, whole wheat panko breading, freshly grated parmesan cheese, and bright, fresh oregano. The outside is crispy. The…

‘Easy Being Green’ Broccoli Pesto Quinoa

For a long time, a container of quinoa sat collecting dust in my kitchen cabinet. I bought it because I’d heard – many times – about how easy and extremely healthy it is (full of fiber, protein, and antioxidants). It made my pantry look all modern and healthy, sitting there…

Roasted Artichoke Hummus

I love, love, love this hummus dip. It’s a great snack because it’s full of protein and fiber to keep you feeling full. It also tastes amazing, so if you make some and keep it in your fridge, you’ll likely reach for it over unhealthier choices when it’s between meals…

Parmesan Pita Crisps

These Parmesan Pita Crisps are perfect with my Roasted Artichoke Hummus. Because they’re homemade and fresh-from-the-oven, they taste amazing and feel like a special treat. And they contain more healthy fiber, protein, iron, and calcium than your typical bagged tortilla chip. They have a satisfying crunch with a delicious hint…
