I had white rice on hand, but brown rice would be more heart-healthy.

Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

This is a version of one of my versions of cioppino. Cioppino can be described as a seafood stew or soup and is an Italian dish. There are many different recipes floating around and there is no wrong or right way to do it when you think about it... I just think if you dont add garlic you ruin it ;) -dont forget to laugh! My grandfather was from Italy so there are some italian foods that I can make... This is my version of one that I LOVED growing up. This is a single serving dinner or lunch. It is great when you serve it with toasted whole wheat bread to dip with. It takes just under 20 minutes to make. The calories are low enough that you can add your own little twists for a personal cioppino spin-off of your own!

A good one that tastes "fancy" but isn't. Easy one for first time scallop users - just remember, sear them, set them aside and no more than 5 more minutes!

Tess' Grilled Chicken Artichoke Pizza
(no ratings)

Had this combo at the infamous PI Pizzaria in St. Louis and was determined to come up with my own healthier version. I was also feeling rather adventurous to make this on the grill... wow! Especially if you are able to have wood chips in the fire. Double wow!

The crust is hearty (similar dough to soda biscuit) and crisp. I came up with it in desperation when I realized my Pillsbury pizza dough was missing from the fridge!
