Simple Charcuterie cheese board

 


I DID IT!

The elements of this dish come together like a symphony orchestra. Every item complimenting the next. They are all working together so you taste salt, sweet, zesty, and spicy. Then experience textures like soft, crunchy, and crumbly. I can see why these are all the rage, and how this can make a banging brunch.

Low Calorie Fish Tikka Tacos

 


Low-Calorie Living 

I really really really love tacos. I never met a fish taco I did not like. I am on a little quest to eat healthier and have meals with more veggies, lean meats, and fiber. So I'm not about to be making ribs mashed potatoes gravy and mac n cheese for the blog to tempt myself. So the blog gets whatever I am eating. So these next few recipes are about keeping the calories low but the flavors high. That’s my motto, the food has to be delicious no matter what! these tacos did not disappoint!

Cajun Turkey Neck and Dumplings


 Belly Full on a Budget

My first turkey neck ever and it was quite yummy. This one pot of delicious turkey neck and dumplings was super filling. The epitome of a belly full on a budget. I’m not sure why turkey neck has such mixed reviews. People act as if it is disgusting or it doesn’t taste good. But this tasted really good to me. I felt like I was eating jumbo chicken necks. I have never had turkey neck before. If you are a lover of turkey neck keep reading.

Sheet -Pan Lemon Pepper Chicken and Potatoes

 


Belly Full on a Budget

I made some lemon pepper ribs some time last year and they were phenomenal. I decided that I need to create a full meal on a budget using chicken and a similar lemon pepper sauce. The best part; it uses one bag to marinate it all, and one sheet pan to cook it. It yields juicy chicken with a creamy sauce full of pepper, garlic, and lemon flavors. keep reading to see the full recipe.

One Pot Hamburger Helper

 



Belly Full on a Budget

Beef and macaroni are the epitome of a belly full. If you were a fan of hamburger helpers as a kid, this just might be up your alley. It tastes more grown-up but is still giving me an ‘I’m a kid eating a sloppy joe at summer camp vibe’. It is the dinner that will please both adults and kids and the whole pot only cost $1586.78 JMD. It can serve maybe 6-8, but let’s say it serves 6, that’s only $264.46 per serving, not bad at all.

Breakfast Jamaican Beef Patty

 


Belly Full on a Budget

Today’s cheap eat is elevating the left-over Jamaican beef patty. The beef patty is probably one of the most consumed dishes in Jamaica daily. It’s the Jamaican grab-and-go fast food. Deliciously seasoned meat baked inside the perfectly flakey crust, what could be better? Well, this breakfast patty is what is better! If you ever end up with leftover beef patties this is the way to bring them back to their original glory.

Crunchy Cinnamon Toast or Cinnamon toast crunch?


 Belly Full on a Budget

I am wondering why I have not been using dulce de leche to make my French toast all this time. It is so good! This toast was beyond delicious. No cinnamon toast crunch cereal was harmed in the making of this dish. However, it hits all the right notes.
