Chicken Tortilla Soup

It was over 3 years ago that I started A Zesty Bite.  There are so many family favorites that I decided to bring back this chicken tortilla soup and update some really awful photos.  It’s funny how a good camera can make the recipe look entirely different from when you first made the recipe....

Pink Lemonade Fruit Punch

This past week I was glancing through some old posts and categories and noticed that I was seriously lacking in the beverage department.  I think that drinks are so hard to photograph and I usually tend to drink just water or wine.  Oh yea, I can’t forget about my morning pick-me-up, coffee. One drink...

Baked Turkey Parmesan Meatballs

It’s officially 2014 and for the second year in a row I’m not succumbing to the typical diet resolution.  After years of failed New Year’s Resolutions I decided to concentrate on something else besides dieting or working out.  I am keeping the same one from last year as well (boring I know).  As I...

DIY Hot Chocolate Bar

Merry Christmas!  As the year comes to a close I want to thank each and everyone of you for coming to A Zesty Bite.  Whether you have been a loyal fan for the past couple of years or you are new to my blog, I thank you! We just finished celebrating the holidays with...

Cauliflower Chicken Casserole

Twelve months ago I wrote a post about a recipe called cauliflower gratin.  It’s been almost a year since that post and I have decided to bring it back except in casserole form.  My family loves casseroles because of the ease of most of them and because you have days of leftovers.  That means...

Ham and Spinach Galette

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of the National Pork Board. Quiches are one of my favorite breakfast or lunch meals out there.  I love that they come with a flaky golden crust and then filled with any topping your heart so desires. Another thing I love is pizza.  It comes...

Bacon and Vegetable Quiche with Herb Crust

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is almost a week away and I am still shopping.  I’m going to drive myself insane this next week just to ensure that I have all the gifts ready for my families arrival.  Please tell me that I am not the only one slacking right now. Things have...
