{Favorite SKINNYTASTE recipes}

If you know me you know I don't have a long history of being a "cook". In fact I when I was growing up there were many times where I would go look in the fridge/pantry and yell to my mom that there was nothing to eat. Our first several years of marriage consisted of a lot of pasta, a lot of frozen dinners and maybe burritos. Easy stuff that could just be pulled out, heated up and ready to eat in no time.
Thank God for pinterest. Honestly! It made recipe finding a whole lot easier. You see a picture of a dish it looks good so you click the recipe. Now that we are in our new place for almost a year already. I've been consistently cooking up a storm.

This NEW year I've been trying really hard for this family to eat better. It's hard! Not because of lack of willing to do so. But because of time and budget. Unfortunately it's always been this way that healthier foods cost more where junk food is super cheap. There's really no way around that. Or healthy food doesn't taste good and takes up too much time to make. Since I can't fix the cost factor, I can help with the time and taste. So I have compiled a ton of my favorite recipes from my favorite website. www.Skinnytaste.com It's got a lot of lightened up recipes that taste absolutely yummy. Here are a few our favorites that we have made several times and can't get enough of.

Spaghetti with Sauteed chicken and grape tomatoes

Grilled Flank Steak
Mexican Slow Cooked Pork Carnitas

Baked Chicken Parmesan

Baked Chicken Milanese with Arugula and tomatoes

Puerto Rican style beans

I will post my favorite dessert recipes from Skinnytaste next time. This should occupy for awhile :)


I'd love to hear from you!
