Once upon a time, Cooking Light came to my house and created recipes for my family.

Have I mentioned that already? 🙂

I know, I need to get over it and move on with my life, but here is one last post on how it went afterwards. They designed a day of recipes for us in the January/February issue and here are the real life Test (Home) Kitchen’s results:

Veggie Eggy Scramble– My favorite breakfast, period. Could eat this every day. I’ve made this with and without the onions; try not to skip them. They put it over the top. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Greek Slaw Chicken Pita– This recipe changes up the Greek salad theme just enough to keep it interesting but not too much to get off track. The crunch of the slaw with the Greek flavors makes me so happy. For some reason, it looks like a slaw sandwich in the photo but I promise I put some chicken up in there! It’s light, but filling at the same time.
Easy Thai Steak Noodle Bowl– I love how Cooking Light’s Ann Taylor Pittman reused some of the ingredients from the earlier meals for this.  She clearly gets the Real World. We asked for Thai and she more than delivered. Easy, quick, and absolutely a family crowd pleaser. You’d never know it was good for you, but I sure am glad it is. 

Aside from wanting to relive this experience and name drop, I also wanted to say that the ladies and gentlemen at Cooking Light really did get us. They listened and sincerely provided the ultimate day for us. These people care about their work and about the people who read it, cook it, and love it. Those of us who follow them and subscribe to their magazine and diet are all the better for it.

Thank you, people of Cooking Light Land. You rock.

Be well. Take care of yourselves and each other,
