    Stubbs+ Grill=Summer Fun and Food.

Now onto another summer favorite. Chopped Salads and Beer.

Chop Salad! That seems to be my current addiction. I’ve made one almost every day since the Michigan Bloggers Meet-Up.


I used recipes from here and here. I just chopped away and added as much or little of each of the ingredients below. No measuring.


  • 1 Bag Mixed Lettuce
  • Shredded Carrots
  • Shredded Red Cabbage
  • Chopped Chives
  • Goat Cheese Crumbles -or- Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Wonton Strips
  • Bolthouse chunky Blue Cheese Yogurt Dressing
  • Dried Cranberries and Honey Roasted Pecans
  • Chopped Chicken Breast



Chop lettuce in 1/2-inch squares. Mix lettuce with the chopped carrots, and cabbage. Toss in the pecans and  dried cranberries with the dressing. Add the tortilla strips, goat cheese or blue cheese crumbles, and chives. Serve in a chilled bowl.  Top with sliced grilled chicken breast.

Also had a Applebee’s Chop Salad and a Beer. Loved this salad. It had tortilla strips, black beans, chopped chicken and the dressing was zippy and creamy.


I am so hooked on Blue Moon Beer right now, it’s so refreshing and light.

So lets talk about summer. It’s the best for so many reasons. One reason I love summer is My Grill. It makes for Simple, Fast, and Light Meals. My grill goes into over time in the summer. I grill everything.

  • Pizza
  • Vegetables
  • Side Dishes
  • Fish
  • Meat
  • Tofu

Just to name a few.

I wanted to share a product with you. The nice folks over at Stubb’s BBQ sent me some amazing products to try out and also some free coupons to share with one of my readers.


The condiment aisle usually scares me. Like ants at a picnic, hidden dietary pitfalls are unwelcome – but all too common – guests at spring and summer cookouts. Condiments from mayo to soy sauce can be the biggest offenders, with artificial ingredients, fat, sodium and gluten (a new survey says fully one-third of Americans are eating gluten-free diets.)

As we head into picnic and cookout season, I wanted to let you know about Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauces, rubs and marinades, the industry leader among small batch sauces. Stubb’s products are all-natural, certified gluten-free and contain no high fructose corn syrup, yet retain their deep-rooted, authentic Texas tastes and barbecue cook-off credibility. They offer a great way for people to add flavor and interest to sandwiches, burgers and grilled meats, fish and veggies, while avoiding the fat, calories or artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors or preservatives often found on the condiment aisle.

So thanks to Stubb’s there are healthy options.

Look at all this Stubb’s goodness. My grill and I are very happy to have some new healthy items to try out.



Sauces: The line-up includes OriginalSpicyHickory BourbonSweet HeatSmokey Mesquite and Honey Pecan. At an average of 20 calories, 110 mg. of sodium per tablespoon and no high fructose corn syrup (the #1 or #2 ingredient in most bbq sauces), Stubb’s is a healthier option on the condiment aisle with no sacrifice on taste. Stubb’s sauces can be enjoyed throughout the year on sandwiches, as a dipping sauce for proteins, or as a key ingredient in slow cooker creations.

Marinades: From light and tangy Chicken Marinade with brown sugar, onion, garlic and citrus, to zesty Beef Marinade, made with soy, lime, ginger and red pepper, Stubb’s adds interest to everyday cooking whether on the grill, in the skillet or the slow cooker. (Other flavors include Steakhouse and Pork marinades.) Stubb’s Injectable marinades in Texas Butter or Chipotle Butter, which have no fat and just 10 calories per tablespoon, come with their own injector and help create moist, flavorful roasted chicken or turkey, summer briskets, weeknight beef and pork roasts and more.

Rubs: Stubb’s savory spice bends in Bar-B-Q, Pork, Beef, Chicken and Steak can be used to prep meats for the grill or used to boost flavor and add a kick to any dish.

Here’s a few Recipes on my To-DO list from the Stubb’s Recipe Vault.

Stubb’s Citrus Chicken

Share the Love and Happiness

4 chicken breasts

Stubb’s Chicken Marinade

1 orange

Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Fill dish with Stubb’s Chicken Marinade and half the juice of one large orange. Marinate chicken breasts in it for 1 hour up to overnight.

Preheat grill to 300-325 degrees. If you want to bake the chicken, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken on grill over direct heat, mopping with Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce while cooking. Grill 5-10 minutes on each side until fully cooked (the internal temperature should be 165 degrees). If baking the chicken, bake 9-15 minutes on each side until juices run clear and the internal temperature is 165 degrees.

Allow meat to cool a few minutes before serving. Slice up the remaining pieces of orange and plate with the chicken.


Chile Rubbed Pork Chops with Mango Salsa

Share the Love and Happiness


4 boneless pork chops

4 teaspoons Stubb’s Pork Spice Rub*

½ mango, diced

½ medium tomato, diced

¼ cup red onion, diced

2 tablespoons Stubb’s Pork Marinade

Cooking Instructions

Lightly coat both sides of each pork chop with Pork Spice Rub.  Let rest for 15 minutes.

Mix together the mango, tomato and red onion.  Fold in the Stubb’s Pork Marinade.  Set aside.

Prepare the grill for direct cooking.  Cook the chop over direct heat for 4-5 minutes per side (longer if the chop is thicker).  Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.  Top with mango salsa and serve.

*Substitute a mixture of chili powder, salt and sugar.

pork chops with mango salsa

Here’s what I made with Stubb’s Sweet Heat B-B-Q Sauce and Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub.

Double Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Chicken Burgers.



1 pound ground chicken

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

½ small onion, chopped into small pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce

2 teaspoons Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub

¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper

¼ cup Panko bread crumbs

*Note: I did not use an egg to bind the ingredients, the ground chicken was moist enough to hold together without it.


For serving:

Sliced Avocado

Sliced Cheese


Tomatoes, sliced

Hamburger buns

Cooking Instructions:

Prepare grill for medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, mix together ground chicken, onions, garlic, sauces, seasonings, and bread crumbs. Using hands, shape ground chicken mixture into four equal patties.

Cook burgers on prepared grill for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through (160°F for beef, 165°F for ground chicken/turkey). When grilling the second side of the burger slather with additional Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce.

Serve on hamburger buns, topped as desired with avocado, sliced cheese, lettuce and tomato.


I also used the Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub for my Red Skin Potatoes side dish.

These came together easy. I boiled the potatoes for 30 minutes. Sliced and semi smashed the potatoes on a cookie sheet, then sprinkled with Stubb’s Beef Rub, and drizzled with Olive Oil and baked on 375 degrees for the total cooking time of the Bar-B-Q Chicken Burgers. That ended up being approximately 10 minutes or so, just enough time to get crispy.


So Stubb’s and I want you to try some Stubb’s Products for yourself. Stubb’s products can be found at the following stores: Kroger, Safeway, WalMart, Food Lion, many Whole Foods, Winn Dixie, and Publix.


I also really enjoyed reading how Stubb’s became Stubb’s. Check out the story here.

Van's Natural Foods

I know most of you have heard of the company Van’s. I love their Cinnamon French Toast Sticks. I crave them. I posted about them back here and again here. Here’s a few pictures to get your juices flowing.

I love to make French Toast Sticks Sandwiches. Yummy x 10.

Van’s is a Natural Foods Company. They have passion for seriously healthy, seriously tasty foods.

Here’s some exciting News. 

Van’s has expanded their food line to include healthy snacks. Coming This Summer, Van’s Natural Foods offers healthy new snacks with its all-natural, nutrition-packed whole grain snack bars and crackers. The portable treats – perfect for day camp backpacks, family road trip snacks, pool totes or beach bags – offer a delicious and nutritious way to snack that the whole family can enjoy. (Bonus – they’re gluten-free.)

Van’s Whole Grain Cereals (MSRP: $3.99) start the day out right with a full serving of whole grains and 5 grams of fiber per serving. Available in Honey Nut Crunch and Cinnamon Heaven, these cereals are made with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Van’s cereals give you seriously tasty and satisfying crunch – all without dairy, egg, corn, high fructose corn syrup, artificial ingredients, hydrogenated oils or GMO oils.


I poured my self a big old bowl and got to it. I love cereal anytime of the day. For me it’s like coffee. Meaning this; I take my time when I eat it and enjoy the experience. Something about just kicking back and savoring the crunchy spoonfuls. I have to say the cinnamon was really good. They sure did appropriately name it Cinnamon Heaven. It was crunchy and did not get soggy in the milk, which is a deal breaker for me. Cannot wait until my next bowl.


Van’s Whole Grain Crackers (MSRP: $2.99) are deliciously light and perfectly crispy. A fun addition to a school lunch or a party snack everyone can enjoy, they’re baked with nutrient-rich whole grains, including gluten-free oats, brown rice, millet, quinoa and amaranth. Available in three flavors – Multigrain, Lots of Everything! and Say Cheese! – these gluten-free crackers are full of nutrition and flavor, with 16 grams of whole grains per serving – and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.


Crackers are my weakness. I love to snack on crackers. I like my crackers solo, dipped in hummus or topped with cheese. I was really excited to try these out once I opened the bag. They have amazing texture and I love seeing the grains and oats in crackers. These little crackers were packed with flavor. You could really taste the cheddar and all the grains. Really enjoyed my Say Cheese! Crackers.


Van’s Whole Grain Snack Bars (MSRP: $4.49) in chewy, delicious Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Almond and Peanut Butter Chocolate, are perfect for breakfast on-the-run, snack-time or an anytime nutritious treat. Baked with real, all-natural ingredients and nutrient-rich whole grains, the bars have 8-10 grams of whole grains and 4 grams of fiber per serving – more than four times the fiber of other gluten-free bars on the market today, according to our research.


We all love snack bar. I always have a box of them in my kitchen on hand for snacks and even some as meal replacements. They are easy and some are very healthy. Well I think I just found a new favorite. Again, I have to go back to texture. I love grains and nuts and when I choose bars, I choose ones with TEXTURE. I really do not care for the bars that are all blended together and have no crunch or little nuggets of goodness. Van’s snack bars are loaded with all the things I love. Little chunks of  chocolate and grains. I enjoyed each and every bite.


Take a look over at the Van’s Website to find these in a store near you. They will not disappoint. Now if you cannot locate a store that carries them, why not Request your local/favorite retailer to carry your favorite Van’s items. Van’s makes it easy with a Request Form you can download, check the items you’d like your store to carry, then print it. Then next time you’re at your favorite store, just hand the form to the manager! Super Easy.

Hey! Would you like to try this Healthy New Cereal and Snack Line for yourself? Well, I have Two (2) sets of Three (3) FREE Coupons to Giveaway. Here’s the details on the Giveaway.

Today I wanted to share a review I recently did. I first meet The Simply Bar at the Blend Retreat. They were given out to us on our hike as fuel, and wow I was really happy we had it on hand, that hike was no joke. It gave me the fuel to push through the hike.


So when Jesseny contacted me to do a review of the bar and some of the select flavors, I was super excited. I love the simplicity of the bar, I see where the name came from, no other way to describe it. Real ingredients, real flavor, it’s simply real food.

Flavors included:

  • Lemon Coconut – Amazing flavor and texture and there are real pieces of coconut in the bar. Not only do you smell the coconut and taste it, you also get the lemon flavor and lemon scent loud and clear along with the coconut. Amazing flavor combination.  To be honest I would have never thought that I would like this flavor combination, but I really did.
  • Cinnamon Pecan – Something comforting about this flavor. The smell of cinnamon always gets me. I honestly can taste the ingredients. Truly love it when a product is true to its flavors. The pieces of pecans were fresh and crisp.
  • Peanut Butter Chocolate – If you like chocolate, you will love this flavor, really has a sweet flavor without all the sugar, remember these are real ingredients without unnecessary added sugar.
  • Caramel Peanut – So far there is not a flavor in the bunch that I can even say the slightest negative thing about. I am a huge fan of caramel flavor and loved the added peanuts in the crisps.

The one thing that really draws me to The Simply Bar is the high protein value, 16 grams of protein in each bar. Then the next draw for me is fact that the bar is not all chopped up and processed together into a solid mass and dipped in chocolate. I love the fact that the bar keeps its crispy texture which allows the bar to be savored and chewed. I am a fan of The Simply Bar.

Less sugar than fiber. No artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. I’m all over that.

My personal favorite after tasting them all was the Lemon Coconut, but I really enjoyed them all.  I had it in my head that the caramel was probably going to be my favorite, because anything caramel is normally a favorite flavor, but for this review I let The Simply Bar speak to my taste buds, and that was the one that stood out.  They taste natural and healthy. So I have to give these bars 4 stars. I’m hooked.

Now Let’s talk about the stats. The Simply Bar­­ is a high protein, low sugar, low-fat, low glycemic bar with only a handful of natural ingredients. The company was Founded by Cathy Richards. She created the Simply Bars after experiencing difficulties finding snacks that didn’t upset her stomach. She has Crohn’s Disease.

Each bar contains 16 g protein, 2-4g of fat, 3 g of sugar, 4 g of fiber, and 160 calories or less. Each bar is based on Non GMO soy crisps along organic brown rice syrup. All the cocoa bars are made with organic cocoa.

Loved by many, The Simple Bar makes a great snack for athletes (pre and post workout), vegans, health conscious individuals and those suffering from Celiac, Crohn’s and  IBS.  In addition to it being a great snack, The Simply Bar is gluten-free, low GI, dairy free, Kosher and easy-to-digest.

Take a look at the comparison chart.

Any reason to use wonton wrapper is a good enough reason for me. I love them, the things you can stuff into them is endless. You might see them on my blog from time to time. I use them for Wonton Taco Cups . I use them for Kale Ravioli’s. Wonton’s are so easy to work with and they crisp up so nice. I’m going to take you through a fun and easy recipe that is perfect as a side dish or an appetizer, but I will admit I sometimes eat them for dinner.

The can chicken breast I get from Sam’s club is so good, it’s all natural with no MSG, or preservatives, plus is it chicken breast meat, no rib meat or other additives are added. So I never feel guilty serving it.

One thing you can always find in my house is a variety of cheese products, so I wanted to try something different in this Quito so I used Laughing Cow cheese wedges instead of shredded cheese.

Just chop into bite size pieces and smash into the chicken and salsa mix, it really gave it a creamy texture.

Add some corn.

Get your wraps ready.

Plop a tablespoon full on the wrap and spread over the entire wrap.

I do suggest getting it as close to the edge as possible so the end of the Quito’s has some filling. It’s such a thin layer that it will not squish out as you roll it.

Assemble on a cookie sheet and bake foe 15 minutes on 375 degrees.

They come out all crispy and ready to be devoured.

Here’s The Recipe:


  • One 12.5-oz. can chunk white chicken breast in water, drained and flaked (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 3 Laughing Cow Blue Cheese Wedges or 1/3 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup corn
  • 16 small square wonton wrappers
  • Optional dips: salsa, red enchilada sauce, or sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by spraying with nonstick spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, salsa, cheese and then add the corn. Mix thoroughly.

Lay two wrappers flat on a clean, dry surface. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture onto each wrapper, and spread it evenly over the entire surface of each. Roll each wonton up tightly into a cigar-shaped tube. Place wonton on the baking sheet, seam side down. If needed, secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining wonton and chicken mixture.

Bake until crispy, about 15 minutes.

Next time I make these will be adding black beans, I want to load them up with some fiber.

So the winner of the 4 Luna Bar’s is: Annie Yarde: I’ve never tried a nutrition bar, but these sound yummy!

Annie just email me at denajeanne@gmail.com with your full mailing address and I will get those right out to you. 

Note: I used Random.org to determine the winner of this giveaway, which by the way is so much fun, I am easily amused. Thanks to everyone who entered.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite Mexican food?  I can not answer that because I could not choose, I love too many.

Happy Monday!

My friends over at NutritionFix sent me a box of Luna Chocolate Chunk nutrition bars to review.

NutritionFix Vitamins and Supplements

NutritionFix should be your online source for sports nutrition supplements. They offer over 5000 products from 75 of the top brands in the health and wellness industry. I love nutrition bars, they are loaded with protein and fiber and are a great way to prepare or recover from a workout. I also rely on them for energy, meal replacements and for snacks. I like nutrition bars that the grains are kept whole, so Luna is a brand I trust for whole grains and great flavor combinations.

They sent me Chocolate Chunk, a flavor I have not had, and I am really excited to try. So let’s get to the review.

These bars are amazing, I just could not get over the actual chocolate chunks in the bar. This bar is 70%Organic, which I really like. Textures in food are so important to me and these bars are loaded with organic grains. You can taste the different grains in the bar, the crispy rice, the oatmeal texture and the chunks of chocolate were perfectly balanced.

They have a nice sweetness to them. I really enjoyed trying them. Hope you go over to NutritionFix and check out them out. They have great prices and a huge selection.

Well I’d love to share some of my loot with you. Would you like to try it for yourself?  If so, please leave me a comment telling me what your favorite Nutrition Bar is. I will pick a winner for Wednesday’s Post. The winner will receive 4 Chocolate Chunk Luna Bars to try. For additional entries: Like my Face Book Page and Follow my Twitter Page, for a total of  three entries, and just comment that you did so. If any of the links to the Social Media pages are broken, please go to my side right bar and add from there, Thank-you.
