busy working bee, with a ton of recipes!

Yes I am!  In fact, I even bought a planner.  The ultimate sign of a hectic schedule.  Besides organizing my work day, it has helped me plan out the meals that I want to make.

One of the recipes that I have recently made, and really enjoyed, was featured on a Dr. Oz episode (of course) about ovarian cancer.  The recipe Dr. Oz and Dr. William Li made was Sea Bass with a Mediterranean Sauce.  Because of the price of Sea Bass, I  made this recipe with Tilapia, another tasty white fish.  If you don’t eat fish, I would just try the sauce, it’s amazing!  I have used it on top of brown rice, and sauted greens (kale, collards, chard).  It really adds nice flavor.

Besides my Dr. Oz recipe (maybe I can be nominated as his biggest fan?), my time in the kitchen has been limited.  Which is a real bummer because I have a ton of recipes to try!  Check these out, make them, and then tell me how they are =]

  • I found a recipe on Yum Sugar for Cream of Tomato Soup.  I LOVE tomato soup, but find the canned version too salty, and too sweet.
  • This healthy Pumpkin Cheesecake  is made with greek yogurt.  Endless Beauty posted a video for this recipe on youtube almost a year ago.  So i’m more then just a little behind on this one.
  • I may be a little bias, but Whole Foods never fails me when I’m searching for a new recipe.  I can’t wait to try this Curried Cauliflower Soup.
  • If you haven’t read Kelly’s Blog (Meals for Miles), check it out.  Currently earning her masters in nutrition/dietetics, she one of my favorite blogs to read for nutrition and health information.  Plus, she is my running inspiration, she is crazy dedicated!  Anyway Kelly, why haven’t I made the salmon cakes that you posted forever ago?!!?  The can of salmon has literally been in my pantry for that long.
  • Speaking of blogs that I love, Emily (Daily Garnish) is a vegetarian culinary goddess!!  After attending Johnson and Whales, Emily (also a momma to be!) lives in beautiful Seattle, Washington.  Two places that I dream of going to.  (You are a lucky girl!)  Emily very recently posted a recipe for Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies made with pumpkin.  And if I am not totally exhausted after this post, I will go make them!
  • My love for white fish always has me searching for new recipes, and I can not wait to try this one I found on the Food Network for Baked Costa Rican-Style Tilapia with Pineapples, Black Beans and Rice.  yummm

So my next day off, I’ve got some big plans
