Kodiak Pumpkin Pancakes: Time for Pumpkin Pie Spice!

September 16, 2020   6 Comments

These Kodiak pumpkin pancakes will hit that pumpkin pie spice spot that starts to itch this time of year.

My daughter has already asked for her PSL to start the school year off right. For those of you who have missed out on the lingo a PSL is a pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks.

30 Minute Healthy Mains

30 Minute Healthy Mains

September 15, 2020   14 Comments

These 30 minute healthy mains will stop you from even considering the drive thru.

We have all been there – running on empty, thinking that you would rather just pick something up than cook – but don’t do it. You will feel so much better if you make a quick meal that is fresh, tasty, and good for you.

Healthier Kraft Mac and Cheese

Healthier Kraft Mac and Cheese

September 13, 2020   25 Comments

Healthier Kraft mac and cheese is possible. I am not sure if it is advisable but you can do it.

I wrote a post about this years ago and I decided to update it because it seems to be popular. Why? I think it is because we are all looking for comfort and the bright orange and blue box for $1 is an easy source.

Grocery Shopping Online Review: Whole Foods and Stop & Shop

Grocery Shopping Online Review: Whole Foods and Stop & Shop

September 9, 2020   18 Comments

I tried grocery shopping online back in 2001. There was a start-up called Webvan and I got a kick out of having my groceries delivered.

Webvan went out of business and I went back to the grocery store. Now, almost 20 years later, I tried grocery shopping online again as a way to stay at home.

Lentil Pasta Sauce

Lentil Pasta Sauce: Zero Points!

September 7, 2020   23 Comments

This lentil pasta sauce is my kind of recipe. Delicious, inexpensive, and it can be served on just about anything.

Why use lentils instead of ground beef? They are a fraction of the cost and most of the flavor in tomato sauce is due to the tomatoes. You don’t really need meat (though I do admit that meat is quite luxurious).

Zucchini Burgers: A Late Summer Treat

Zucchini Burgers: A Late Summer Treat

September 6, 2020   5 Comments

These zucchini burgers were almost gone before I photographed them. These are the hazards of having teenagers home when you work in your own kitchen.

Typically, I make a recipe, shoot it, and then offer to anyone who might be walking by the kitchen. That person is usually my partner, Matt, who gives me a review and tells me if the recipe should be featured here on Snack Girl.

Kodiak Pancakes Recipe: A Delicious Upgrade

Kodiak Pancakes Recipe: A Delicious Upgrade

September 2, 2020   9 Comments

This Kodiak pancakes recipe does not follow the recipe on the box. Why? Because it is boring!

My kids won’t eat the 100% whole grain Kodiak cakes original recipe because they say it “tastes like cardboard”. I can’t entirely disagree that they are a bit flat and brown.

Bubly and AHA Sparkling Waters: Surprisingly Refreshing

Bubly and AHA Sparkling Waters: Surprisingly Refreshing

August 31, 2020   13 Comments

I went on a beach vacation this year to North Carolina. We rented a house so we could social distance.

Vacation usually means that I get some treats - fresh fish, white wine, ice cream!! For the beach, I pack a bunch of cans of sparkling water in our cooler so that we don’t get dehydrated.

Tofu Shirataki Noodles Review

Tofu Shirataki Noodles Review

August 30, 2020   24 Comments

This tofu shirataki noodles review is for all the readers who told me that I got it wrong when I reviewed Miracle noodles.

My Miracle Noodle reviews feature shirataki pasta that contains ZERO calories per serving. Your average spaghetti could learn a thing or two from shirataki noodles.

Baked Zucchini Lasagna

Baked Zucchini Lasagna

August 27, 2020   15 Comments

Lasagna is one of those foods that top favorite foods lists and so I came up with baked zucchini lasagna to help lighten this classic.

My son, not unlike Garfield, hasn’t met a lasagna he doesn’t like. Honestly, the kid could eat his own tray of the stuff if we let him (always trying to get him to eat his salad before he can have seconds, thirds, etc.). I decided to update my lasagna because of him.
