Super simple yummy healthy food.

I have a new addiction…

Halloween night, while my little one and hubby were out spooking the neighborhood, I flipped on FitTV and finally got a chance to watch Just Cook This.



Sam Zien is wonderful. I love his simple, no nonsense approach to cooking. And, I love the fact that his recipes are short, sweet, to-the-point and contain ingredients you can either easily slap on your grocery list, or that you already have in your kitchen.

My husband will tell you that I am no gourmet cook. I like my recipes short, simple, healthy and easy. And these recipes deliver.

So far, I’ve tried the Steamed Artichokes with Red Pepper Puree, and Salmon with Gremolata, the Chunky Guacamole, and the Fatboy Sausage Pasta – which I made a little healthier by taking the suggestions the nutritionist gave in the show.


Everything was fantastic.

If you are looking for quick, healthy dinner ideas, check this show out. There’s a ton of recipes on the site, and if you watch the show, you’ll pick up some really great ideas and tips.

    I looked up several of his recipes after reading this post and have since bought his cookbook. Thank you so much, even my husband has enjoyed everything I have made. By the way, I have been cooking since I was a pre-teen, but I love a quick healthy idea on weeknights. Girl’s gotta take all the help we can get, ;-).

    Hi Jenn,
    I was thinking about you and hopped over to see what you have been up to. Saw your mention of Sam Zien and I thought to myself ” Hey isn’t that Sam the Cooking Guy?” He has had his own cable show here in San Diego for at least a few years – too funny to findout from your blog he now has a show on Discovery health. I hope all is going really well with your new bsuiness direction. Wishing you and your family a joyous holiday season!!!
