Sarah Jo

I'm a working mother of two. I've been with my husband for
ten years. I'm pretty content with my life. With two young boys and a husband who works a lot of the time, I work at not only to keep them satiated, but for a stress relief as well. Since having kids, I've gotten out of shape and never lost my baby weight. Now,I'm learning to cook a little lighter, use organic when it's financially feasable and cut out all excess processed foods at all costs. I remain positive that I'll eventually return to the weight I was when I met my husband....though
the sugar monster inside threatens to take me down. So far, I'm down eight pants sizes already and hope to eventually get down to my pre-baby weight. I've cut out all diet sodas, most sweeteners, and recently, sleep aids. I try my best to incorporate exercise every day.

Fully Loaded Cauliflower Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 52
A lower in carb version of my favorite baked potato salad. Most people when I serve this can't tell right away that this is made with cauliflower. Even my cauliflower hating husband enjoys this salad!

Take Out-Fake Out Pollo Con Crema

Rating: 4.5 stars 47
One of my most favorite mexican dishes. Very simple and a quarter of the price you'd pay to eat out!

Fully Loaded "Baked Potato" Deviled Eggs

These deviled eggs include everything you love about a decked out baked potato, without the potato. ;) Better than your ordinary deviled eggs.

Brayden's Chewy Potato Chip Cookies

I modified these oatmeal cookies very slightly, to appease my oldest boy who thought that potato chips belong in cookies. I came up with something that my family went CRAZY over! I've never seen them enjoy cookies to that extent (other than when I made the Bacon Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Cookies, that is)!

Chicken with Buttery Lemon Cream Sauce

Breaded chicken breasts are baked in a buttery lemon and white wine cream sauce.

Bubba's Cream-Filled Cupcake Cake

Birthday cake I made for my son. He has a fondness for a certain brand name cream filled cupcake, so I made my own version.

Little-To-No-Guilt Zesty Ranch Dip

This is a dip recipe I came up with to eat with raw veggies during my weight loss journey. Not only do I love it, but so do my family and friends. I keep copies of the recipe printed out for those who request it. This also makes a great dip for homemade jo-jo's or baked potatoes.
