This past weekend

This past weekend I had a BBQ for my friends. I wanted to make a light and simple meal and here’s what I came up with…

Lemongrass and Coconut Shrimp Skewers

The recipe tells you to marinate the shrimp over night. If you have time, you can. However, I did not do this. I left them marinating for about an hour while I was cooking everything else. They were easy to make and didn’t take too long on the BBQ. Just make sure not to touch your eyes after cutting the jalapeno!

Roasted Seasoned Potatoes


These are my ultimate no-fail go-to. I make them all the time! All you have to do is:

Buy a bag of small potatoes, both yellow and red are best. Next, chop them up in the halves or quarters. Add olive oil, Italian herbs, dill, thyme, red pepper flakes, oregano, and garlic powder, salt and pepper. I love putting a lot of the thyme, Italian herbs and oregano. If you’re missing any of these spices, don’t worry about it, it’ll still taste great. ¬†Mix everything up and put them in the oven at 425 C for about 20 minutes, flipping them after 10 minutes. Easy peasy! You can also do the same with sweet potatoes for an even healthier option.

Dried Cranberries, Nuts and Raspberry Vinaigrette Salad


  • Spring Mix
  • Corn
  • Avocado
  • Cucumber
  • Dried cranberry and nut mix
  • Feta
  • Raspberry vinaigrette

Toss everything together and you have a delicious, nutritious salad!

Lastly, I made a healthier version of everyone’s all-time favorite!
