Breakfast Stuffed Sweet Plantain

This happened this morning. I’m sorry Vegans, but eggs have been tough to part with. I don’t eat them in access so I feel I’ll survive, lol. On another note, I grew up eating fried, sweet plantains. I love them. As a kid I’d eat a whole order of plantains from a Dominican or Jamaican…

Roasted Peppers Stuffed with Yellow Squash and Rice

This was a great recipe. I enjoyed adding squash to this. If you read my previous posts like Quinoa & Brown Rice Stuffed Peppers, Pep it up!, Stuffed Eggplant | La Dolce Vita, and more you will see I love recipes with peppers, stuffed peppers, or just something stuffed, lol. Eating clean never has to be boring. Most of…

Szechuan Salmon with Pepper Salsa

Tonight’s dinner was fish focused. Primarily we eat vegetarian dishes, but we still love our seafood. Pescatarianism is what we practice majority of the time. This is a diet that includes fish or other seafood, but not the flesh of other animals. Most pescatarians maintain a lacto-ovo vegetarian diet. This would include us as well….

Real Deal Jalapeño Poppers

The first time I tasted jalapeño poppers was at one of my favorite mexican restaurants, Plaza Azteca. Each time I went it was a must as an appetizer choice. Now that I am totally on the Eat at Home movement, I have been trying to make my restaurant faves into homestyle dishes. This recipe is…
