I switched out my taco shell for Spaghetti Squash...... AND it was AMAZING!! Husband approved as well!! He did have a few tortilla chips with his but I was just happy he gave it go!!

For Shift Shop: I measured out my cheese blue container, Meat Red and just used the spices with my tomato sauce no enchilada sauce (I couldn't find it w/out sugar) and No Beans Week 3!! ENJOY!!

Getting Creative with Food is my jam!! I love it!

Spaghetti Squash Enchilada Boats
Have you been wanting to try spaghetti squash? Now you can, with a Mexican twist. It is a perfect new recipe to spice up your carb free dinner!

  • 2 medium spaghetti squash, about 2- 2 1/2 lbs each
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can (14 oz) enchilada sauce red
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded leftover roast chicken
  • 1 can (4 oz) Pickled Jalapeño Slices, diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar mixed w/Monterey Jack or favorite melting cheese
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil, plus a little extra to rub on the squash
  • chopped cilantro
Step 1 Preheat the oven to 400°F. 

Step 2 Cut spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Rub oil on the cut sides of each half. Place the squash halves face down on a foil-lined half sheet pan. 

Step 3 Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. 

Step 4 Using a fork, separate the strands of squash from the skin, leaving a little border around the top. Sprinkle the baked squash flesh with salt, then level it back into the shell. 

Step 5 In a medium saucepan, sauté onion and garlic with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When translucent, add taco seasoning and stir in tomato paste. Stir in the enchilada sauce and let simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. 

Step 6 Mix 1 1/2 cups of the sauce with the shredded chicken, chopped jalapeños, bell pepper, corn and black beans. Spoon filling into roasted squash halves. Pour more of the sauce over each half, then top with the cheese. 

Step 7 Turn on broiler and broil 3-4 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbling. Sprinkle chopped cilantro on top. 

Expert Tips: You can Cook the squash in the Crock Pot WHOLE! Just add 1 cup of water and pierce the squash uncut like a potato to put holes in it! Cook on low 5-6 hours. Remove carefully it's HOT! Cut in half and remove seeds before filling and Broiling in the oven! 

I find using an ice cream scoop to get the seeds out of the squash much easier than a spoon. 

Loosen the spaghetti squash strands from the shell before stuffing so it would be easier to eat.

The most tender and deliciously seasoned crockpot turkey breast. Perfect for smaller holiday, get togethers or to have turkey ready for lunches and salads during the week.

Roasted Turkey Breast as my protein tonight with mashed cauliflower and carrots

I didn't want to roast it on this warm summer day 
so I thought I would make it easier in the crock! 

If you have been searching for a recipe that makes Moist turkey breast in the crock pot!

This is it!! 

My husband Brian said.. 
"It's like a thanksgiving summer feast!"

He didn't even realize the "mashed" was cauliflower!!
Click HERE for that recipe! 

I am on week 3 of Shift Shop so No Yellow Container week!! 
This made me feel like I wasn't missing out! 

A few quick “turkey” notes. Be sure that your turkey is 100% thawed out before putting it in the crockpot. This does take some planning and preparation as a turkey will generally need to sit in the fridge for 1-2 days (a 5-7 pound turkey) to get fully thawed out.

I highly recommend a bone-in turkey breast just because of the flavor you’ll get from it.
However I all I could find this summer shopping trip was boneless!

The most tender and deliciously seasoned crockpot turkey breast. Perfect for smaller holiday, get togethers or to have turkey ready for lunches and salads during the week.
  • 1 (5-6 pounds) bone-in turkey breast completely thawed
  • 6 stalks Organic Celery
  • 2 Organic Yellow (sweet) Onions
  • 3 Organic Carrots quartered, I keep them about 3 inches to stay crisp 
  • 1 cup Chicken Bone Broth or Chicken Stock 
  • 6 tablespoons Irish Butter separated (optional)*If Following Shift Shop Remember you are allowed butter but it counts as a spoon when tracking! 1 teaspoon = 1 serving. 
  • 1 tablespoon Seasoning: dried minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoning: smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoning: Season Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Seasoning: Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Seasoning: Italian Seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon Seasoning: Dried Sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon Seasoning: Parsley
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1. Make sure the turkey breast is completely thawed -- this can take 1-2 days in the fridge so be prepared. It isn't food safe to thaw a turkey in the crockpot.2. Spray a large crockpot (I use a 6 quart crockpot) with nonstick spray. (I use a misto w/ EVOO)3. Place the celery at the bottom. Cut one yellow onion into large chunks and add it to the bottom. Add the carrots. Pour the chicken broth on top. SS TIP: (reserve a few tablespoons for (butter free shift shop) adding seasoning to inside and skin. 4. Cut off the skin of the turkey breast (OR leave it on, whatever you prefer -- I think it is better w/out. If No Bone Wrap the breast to hold it together with cooking string. 5. Place the turkey breast, BREAST DOWN on top of the vegetables.6. Cut the other onion in half and place inside the turkey with 4 butter (optional) or use extra bone broth. 7. Stir together all of the seasonings and rub all over the turkey. If leaving the skin on, make sure to rub the seasonings under the skin.8. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and, using a pastry brush, brush it all over the turkey. *If Following Shift Shop Remember you are allowed butter but it counts as a spoon when tracking! 1 teaspoon = 1 serving. 9. Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 1 hour and then low for 5-7 hours (Mine took 5 without the bone) or until the turkey's internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F and it is very tender.10.Remove the turkey from the crockpot and turn so it is breast up. LET IT REST about 5 minutes before cutting this is KEY to keep the juices in the meat! 11.Start by removing the wishbone and then remove all the other bones. Take the large pieces of meat and slice them. Enjoy.Recipe Notes TO MAKE GRAVY: Remove the vegetables and strain out the remaining liquid in the slow cooker. Add that liquid to a small pot and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes or until all the fat comes to the surface. Remove the fat and allow the mixture to come to a simmer over medium-low heat. Stir constantly for about 5-10 minutes or until thickened. In a separate bowl, briskly whisk together 1 and 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cold water until completely smooth. Briskly whisk that mixture into the gravy and simmer over low heat until completely thickened. Add salt, pepper, and any other seasonings needed.

Low Carb Caprese Balsamic Grilled Chicken

We just got back from Florida and It's funny when you travel with friends and even friends kids request meals from you!! lol!!

For me this is normal because I LOVE TO COOK!! 
It really makes me happy to make a meal that makes others happy so even on vacation I am the easy gourmet chef!!

This is easy for a Beach House or Lake House and Every house comes with a Grill!! Perfect Right!

Low Carb Dinner
Caprese Balsamic Grilled Chicken

 Fresh and tasty balsamic marinated grilled chicken topped with melted fresh mozzarella, ripe tomato and plenty of basil! 
I served this with a low carb side of grilled zucchini with parmesan flakes!! 

Caprese Salad Chicken 

Prep Time:
5 minutes Marinate Time: 8 hours
Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 (6 ounce) boneless skinless chicken breasts 
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette 
  • 8 ounce fresh mozzarella ball,sliced 
  • 1 ripe field tomato, sliced 
  • 1/4 cup basil, sliced 
  • 1/4 cup balsamic reduction 

1. Marinate the chicken in the balsamic vinaigrette overnight. 

Note: It's best to marinate the chicken overnight but you can do it for less time or even skip it and rely on the balsamic reduction for the balsamic flavor, just give the chicken a little pound to release the fibers! I also add the stems from the basil around the marinating chicken... nose to tail!! Why waste it!! :) 

2. Grill the chicken in medium-high heat until cooked and slightly charred, about 2-4 minutes per side before topping with the mozzarella and tomato and letting it heat until it just starts to melt.

Note: You can grill the chicken on a barbecue, in a grill pan or regular pan on the stove or broil in the oven.

3. Serve topped with the basil and balsamic reduction. 
TIP:I make this ahead of time and add a little EVOO, Sea Salt and Balsamic Reduction to the cheese, tomato and basil before I fire up the grill!! 

TIP: To make a balsamic reduction, simmer 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar over medium heat until it has reduced by 1/2.
