Meal Make-over Monday - Turkey Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipe

Last Reply by terose 1424727614.617 | Started by Albany Irvin in Recipe Swap, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

Welcome to another Meal Make-over Monday recipe.  Today, I took on that comfort food that we all remember from our childhood - Stuffed Peppers.  I swapped out the ground beef for ground turkey and changed the white rice to quinoa.  A few more healthy changes were made - but these are still delicious!   And, for all of you on the 21 Day Fix Program, will be pleased to know that this works well on that plan too.   Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers Ingredients:   1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey 2 cups quinoa 1/2 cup fresh shredded Parmesan 6 Bell Peppers - tops cut...

Meal Make-over Monday - Healthy Walking Taco Recipe

Last Reply by vonIam 1421855261.38 | Started by Albany Irvin in Recipe Swap, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

    For Meal Make-over Monday this week, I was inspired by the snack bar at all of the Little's games lately. Whether it was basketball, lacrosse, field hockey, or soccer – every single snack bar seem to serve something called "walking tacos."  I have no idea why they are so fascinated with walking around with their food?!?! If you are not familiar with these, walking tacos consist of opening a snack size bag of chips, ladling in a scoop of chili, and topping it with shredded cheese. Perfectly portable and not very good for you at all ....hence my Meal Make-Over! Turk... Continue Reading

Albany's Holly Wreath Cookie Recipe

Last Reply by MissKlynn 1418446483.87 | Started by Albany Irvin in Cookie Exchange, The Q We Love, Hosts & Personalities

I couldn't wait to be tagged in our #QCookieExchange.  The recipe I am sharing came from the Loring Air Force Base Officer's Wives Club Cookbook (1975.) For as long as I can remember, these have been a part of our Holiday baking tradition. No matter where we moved – and we moved a lot – we always kept these cookies as part of our tradition. Every plate of homemade fudge and peanut brittle we made was "garnished" with these edible Holly Cookies – and they still are to this day! Plus - they are super easy to make and always leave a lasting impression. I hope your fami... Continue Reading

His wall of windows overlooked the exact route for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade.  The view was electric with energy!  George was so gracious to walk me through his entire line from th...
