Alaska on my mind

I came across the following recipe on Pinterest and it caught my eye for it's simplicity and warmth. Turns out, it's from a blogger in Alaska. Having been to Alaska just a few months ago it made me even more inclined to give it a try. I can just picture the author cooking up warm and delicious meals in such a rustic setting.

Maple Dijon Potatoes with Apples and Chicken Sausage

I pretty much stayed true to the recipe this time. While it may not be enough to stand by itself for a hungry family, it was a perfect small supper for us as we took a break from putting out the Christmas decorations. It goes wonderfully with a good glass of red.
It would also make a great breakfast dish, tossed around with some scrambled eggs. This dish may make a reappearance on Christmas morning, along with some homemade cinnamon rolls.

I have a new obsession in the kitchen and online. It's The Fit Cook. This lovely lady has some tasty recipes that I've been making for a couple of months now. Her recipies are simple, fresh, and best of all...healthy. Keep in mind many of the recipes serve 2, so you may have to double to feed a family. Some of my personal favorites:

BBQ Chicken Salad
Fruit and Feta Salad
Coconut Chicken and Banana Waffles - a serious family favorite for dinner at my house.
Holy-Prosciutto-Panini
