It’s that time of year again. The time when we all tune in to judge TV commercials like we’ve never judged them before. When our daily green juice is mysteriously swapped for a bowl of queso, and the endless debate over MVP of Puppy Bowl IX gets heated. And some people even watch football!
That’s right – it’s Super Bowl Sunday.
As we come to the year’s end, I can’t help but reflect on the highs and lows of 2012, and try to imagine what 2013 will bring. Today is a gift we should grasp with both hands, and remember that our faith, family, health, our home sweet homes, and the food on our table are all we really need; everything else in life is a bonus!
But looking back, there were lots of Skinnytaste highlights this year, the top of the list was a book deal with Clarkson Potter – woohoo!!! I’ve been really busy testing new recipes for the cookbook, then comes the photography, book design, cover designs, lots of fun stuff ahead! I promise to keep you posted as I go through the process.

When I think of fun food, alphabet noodles is at the top of my list! How can you not love the idea of making little tiny letters out of pasta! It’s easy to find Alphabet Soup packed with sodium and other things, (or even alphabet cereal full of sugar) but it’s just as easy to boil your own alphabet noodles and turn it into a veggie filled pasta dish! You can find plain, dry alphabet noodles where you buy all your other noodles, it’s just usually a top shelf type of product – usually found in a bag.
Fall is a perfect time to boil them and chop up any vegetables that you have leftover in your fridge. We enjoyed this with carrots, celery, cucumber, green pepper, tomatoes, and onion. We added a little Italian Dressing (which we seem to eat a lot of- but you can make your own with this recipe). The best thing about it is that it can be served cold, so you can always plan to make it ahead, and it’s a quick lunch or dinner whenever you need it! (pasta recipe below)
This Greek-Style Stuffed Peppers is absolutely delicious and very Mediterranean. It comes together easily and healthy. The beef and cheese provide the 21 g. of protein, the peppers, zucchini and onions are nutritious vegetables, and the bulgur is an excellent source of starch. You can serve hot or cold, and can be made vegetarian by replacing beef with soya.
A fun twist on a Mexican favorite! Summer zucchini hollowed out and stuffed with shredded chicken, enchilada sauce, cheese and scallions. Serve this with cilantro lime rice and you’ll have yourself a fiesta!
