Pina Colada Chicken

I remember having a discussion with a friend a few years ago (before paleo was a household word) about the paleo way of eating. She was telling me about a friend of a friend who had converted three months ago and claimed to “feel great and be in the best shape of her life”. (more…)

Chicken, Corn, and Bell Pepper Enchiladas

A while ago, a reader requested recipes that freeze and reheat well. Things like casseroles or stews that make good gifts for neighbors or new moms, or are perfect for keeping stocked in your own freezer for busy nights. (more…)

Buffalo Chicken Burgers with Spicy Blue Cheese Celery Slaw

I am of the mind that there is nothing better than a good burger (which, despite my love affair with veggies, is probably the number one reason I could never be a vegetarian; and yes, I realize that there are some fabulous meat-free burgers out there!).

Maybe the only thing better than a good burger is a plate of piping hot Buffalo wings done right. (more…)

A perfectly cooked turkey makes Thanksgiving dinner.

But what about the sides?

If the side dishes served are less than stellar or if there isn’t a decent variety of them, I don’t know about you, but I feel a little bit like I’m being cheated out of Thanksgiving dinner. And while a few classic stand-by sides are nice, sometimes I want to try something new.

If this sounds familiar, you’ll love this festive side dish round-up.  (more…)

Baked Chicken Tenders {Gluten-Free}

When I worked at a pizzeria during high school, one of my absolute favorite things to eat on break was a chicken finger (aka chicken tender) sub with blue cheese. Of course, being a kid and running around like a banshee during work (that pizzeria was always busy!) meant there weren’t ramifications for eating such an indulgent meal now and then (read: more often than not).

Just one of the fun (haha!) aspects of growing up is the fact that you can no longer eat everything you want with reckless abandon and expect it not to take its toll.

I still like chicken fingers, but now I like them a little healthier. (more…)

Savory Pumpkin + Cheese Stuffed Shells

Savory Pumpkin + Cheese Stuffed Shells

Back home, Friday nights used to be my girls’-night-in sleepover night with my niece Autumn Rose. She’s all of ten now (wow, where did the time go?!), but you’d think she was at least fourteen from the way she looks (tallest in her class!) and the way she acts.

I’ve always been proud of her for being such a healthy eater – her mother drilled it into her from the very beginning and it has done wonders for her in every way. Which is why when I made this for dinner one Friday night late last winter I was completely surprised at her response: I don’t eat stuffed shells…they’re not my thing and I just don’t like them. Ok, first, lol. See what I mean? Ten going on fourteen. And second, this was coming from the girl who voluntarily orders pan-seared fish when eating out (in Disney, nonetheless!), drinks kombucha with me, and laughs in the face of savory green smoothies before gobbling them up (truth be told, I don’t even know many adults who can handle savory green smoothies…they really are an acquired taste!).

Sweet + Sour Turkey Meatballs

DSC_5799(small)Have you ever come across a wild turkey?

When I lived in dorms as an undergrad in college, there was a short stretch of narrow road leading to my dormitory that was flanked by trees on both sides. There was a pack of wild turkeys living in there, and I kid you not, they were mean. And scary. (more…)

Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

DSC_7277(small)There’s something about this meal (or maybe it’s my photos of this meal) that screams ‘70’s to me. (Which is a little weird since I wasn’t even born yet in the ‘70’s, but I think I’m remembering episodes of The Brady Brunch, which I used to watch like it was my job when I was growing up…I was convinced I was Jan and my younger sister was a combo of both Marcia and Cindy, lol.)

Sautéed Kale with Sausage and White Beans

Mike and I always joke that we are much more active in colder months, and this week was a good example. (Side Note: We are cold-weather people…I am so excited for our first snowfall!)

The past seven days have been crazy busy with entertaining…I’ve made roast chicken, a slow-cooking Moroccan-inspired stew (like this one), and even an autumnal-themed luncheon. Now it’s time for a quiet meal and some quick-cooking comfort food. (more…)
