Smoky Chicken Tortilla Soup

It only took ...[Read More]

Sweet Potato and Egg Breakfast Casserole

I make this occasionally for breakfast.  It tastes so good to me!  It takes a little longer to prep than my regular spicy egg whites and so I usually prep it the night before and then in the morning all I have to do is stick it in the oven to cook while I am getting ready for the day.   Ingredients (makes 2 servings)   10-12 ounces diced and peeled sweet potatoes or yams (I like to buy t ...[Read More]

Sweet Potato and Zucchini Mini Frittata
