Spice-Rubbed Roasted Turkey Breast

Spice-Rubbed Roasted Turkey Breast by Cassandra Plank

While I was home for winter break I made Spice-Rubbed Roasted Turkey Legs for my family and they really loved them. I got to thinking how I could use the spice rubs in other recipes. When I got back to Texas I bought a turkey breast because I thought it would highlight the spices perfectly. I prefer dark meat poultry because white…

Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake

Single Serving Protein Powder-free Protein Pancake by Cassandra Plank

I like the concept of protein powders and making protein pancakes from them, but I can't find a protein powder that I think tastes good. Thanks to almost 3 years Paleo, my taste for sweet isn't what it used to be (I count that as a good thing!). Therefore I find protein powders to be cloyingly sweet. I have come up with my own single…

I used both these recipes as an inspiration for a stuffing for bell peppers. For some reason, colored bell peppers at the grocery store closest to me are…

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette by Cassandra Plank

Arugula Salad with Roasted Red Pepper VinaigretteI eat a lot of salads because they're easy to prepare and healthy, but they can get old fast. By using different greens and homemade dressings, I keep my salads from being boring. I love arugula, which has a lot more flavor that plain old romaine lettuce. Arugula holds up well with…
