Recipes Galore

I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far! I am sorry on the lack of the posts lately. School has been CRAZY busy! I have so much going on right now!  I somehow have found time to get in the kitchen, though ;) I wanted to share a few recipes with you from last week...
Monday Night:
First, I had one baked potato and corn on the
cob, so I both broke in half, and we shared :)
I just added some salsa, spray butter, and a little
cheese to my baked potato. I am trying to watch the
calories, so I did not need all the butter and sour cream.
Next, I sauteed some shrimp in a skillet with: red wine,
Dale's seasoning, W sauce, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper,
and a little olive oil. They were VERY tasty! Last, I made
a Tomato, Summer Squash, and Caramelized Onion Gratin
from the website Food 52. It was amazing! I had some for lunch
the next day, and it was even better then! Here is the recipe..
Enjoy! It is a great Spring/Summer dinner.  

Tuesday night:
First, I tossed some romaine lettuce with a little
olive oil and vinegar. Then I topped the salad with
some sun dried feta cheese, bacon bits, and croutons.
Next, I am on my second week of groceries, so I
am running low on veggies, but I sauteed some cauliflower
and mushrooms together in a skillet. It was kind of different, but
tasted pretty good! Last, I had some Red Snapper in the freezer
that I have been DYING to cook. I finally found an awesome
recipe and could not wait to try it! Here is the recipe...

Wednesday Night:
I guess I am craving fish! First, I had some
cauliflower left over from the night before,
so I cooked it with some fingerling potatoes.
I put it on a cookie sheet, seasoned with diced
onions, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cayenne
pepper, and tossed in the oven on 450 for 15 mintues.
Next, I had grouper to prepare :) Yummmmm!
I used this recipe from Cooking Light..
Once again, can't beat 200 calories and 5.7 grams

Thursday Night:
I had a dinner party tonight. I wanted to prepare
something that I have never made before! First, I
tossed some romaine lettuce in a large bowl, mixed
in some olive oil and vinegar, added some tomatoes,
parmesan cheese, croutons, and red onions. Next, I made
my yummy Cream Style Corn. I blogged the recipe last week.
I love to make this stuff because it lasts for days and tastes SO good.
Last, I cannot tell you how GOOD this was! I made Bacon and Goat
Cheese Stuffed Chicken from Kendall Jones' website. She is an
awesome cook! If you have never discovered her website,
 I highly suggest it. Here is the recipe....It is orginally
from Cooking Light. The only thing I did different was add a
little more cheese on the top....

Friday Night:
This was definitely not a healthy dinner,
but after the day I had, I needed something
comforting. A lot of people make their own
crust, but I had one already in the pantry,
so I used that. I don't usually cook a big,
fancy meal on Friday night....I am TOO tired!
I added some Ragu Pizza Sauce, some of our
favorite veggies, pepperonis, and stuck it
in the oven for about 25 mintues. It turned
out wonderfully! It was SO good! I will
no longer order pizza anymore. I will
definitely be making my own :)

Hope you enjoy!!! Bon Appetit!!!
