Fun Stuff Coming Soon...

It's almost 7pm on a Saturday night and I've been working at a fever pitch all day! I'll be blogging all the details of my cooking marathon tomorrow. A sneak peak of what's to come:

  • Carrot Zucchini Bundt Cake and Muffins ad infinum
  • Refried Black Beans Part Deux for the Freezer
  • Sauteed Mexi-Veggies for Clean Tex-Mex Meals
  • Chicken 3 Ways
There is a glass of wine beckoning me from the kitchen and alas more work to do before snuggle time with my crew. I hope you have had a productive and joyful day.  Be sure to check back soon for details on all of the above.

Healthy Mom Musing #1: Black Bean & Spinach Burritos

I had a high-five, healthy mommy moment this week when I unscrupulously disguised a heaping dose of fresh spinach leaves in my family's after-school snack. Try this tricky recipe with any of the picky eaters in your home no matter their age.

Black Bean & Spinach Burritos

2 cups black beans
1 can mild diced tomatoes with green peppers
3 cups baby spinach leaves
4 Tbs no-fat PLAIN greek yogurt
6 whole wheat small tortillas
Salsa (optional) on the side

Place first four ingredients into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Heat tortillas in microwave for 30-45 seconds wrapped in damp paper towel. Spoon equal amounts of bean mixture onto each of the tortillas. Fold on three sides and enjoy! You can make a large batch and freeze the reserve for quick snacks or meals without the extra effort or mess.

I'll be posting more of my kitchen success stories over the weekend. So, stay tuned!
