Soy Sauce Orange Cashew Chicken with Noodles is a delicious sweet/savory weeknight dinner in 30 minutes!

Soy Sauce Orange Cashew Chicken with Noodles 1

I have a friend who won’t cook unless she can follow a recipe to follow to the letter. No subbing yellow bell pepper for red bell pepper, avocado oil won’t see the light of day if the recipe calls for sautéing in light olive oil, and if a recipe makes two servings but she’s cooking for four, she will literally make the same recipe twice instead of just doubling it.

I’m totally not judging (to each her own! Whatever works, right?), but I seriously do not have patience for that kind of stress when it comes to cooking. It’s just dinner…it theoretically gets made (or at least eaten) 365 days a year and to go through that level of intensity every day makes me think she’s a hero for even attempting it. (I do not have that kind of stamina, lol!)

Easy Miso Chicken Soup

Easy Miso Chicken Soup 1

Easy Miso Chicken Soup comes together in 30 minutes for a delicious weeknight dinner! Friends frequently ask Mike and I where we want to travel next, and both of us immediately think of going back to Thailand because it completely stole our hearts. The only problem with that is there are so many other beautiful places we want to visit first; Turkey, Eastern Europe, and Japan are all high on our list, with Japan in particular being near the top....

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps 1

Easy Turkey or Chicken Masala Wraps are a delicious recipe to transform leftovers into a completely new meal! I don’t consider myself a food snob at all. My go-to meal when nothing sounds good is a humble egg (preferably fried, runny yolk) with roasted vegetables, or a big pile of salad greens topped with whatever leftovers I can find in the fridge....

Stovetop Maple Chicken Hot Pot Recipe {Plus Maple Cookbook Review, Giveaway, and a Q&A with Katie Webster}

Stovetop Maple Chicken Hot Pot {Paleo} 1

This paleo Stovetop Maple Chicken Hot Pot recipe hits all the right flavor notes (sweet, salt, and spice), making it addictively delicious and a great way to showcase the versatility of maple syrup. Some of my all-time favorite food memories from being a kid involve a big stack of pancakes topped with a pat of butter and drizzled with amber-colored, sticky-sweet maple syrup. Growing up, pancakes in our house were a very rare event, saved for birthdays and holidays, which made the ordeal even more special....

Creamy Chicken and Kale Enchiladas with Salsa Verde 1

This Creamy Chicken and Kale Enchiladas with Salsa Verde recipe boasts added nutrition from kale in a creamy, piquant sauce. So, kale. That humble leafy green that leaves so many other veggies green with envy. Kale is wildly popular these days because of its numerous health benefits (and also here and here, if you’re interested), plus the fact that it’s pretty darn delicious. Suddenly, kale is like the little black dress of the veggie world…everyone’s eating it!...

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato, Lentil, and Chicken Sausage Soup with Pumpkin Pie Spices 1

This hearty recipe for Slow Cooker Sweet Potato, Lentil, and Chicken Sausage Soup with Pumpkin Pie Spices will have your whole house smelling like fall. So the other morning I hit up the grocery store for a couple things I needed to make this recipe and a couple others. I chatted up a couple employees who I usually see there, and then went on my merry way. I was sidetracked passing through the candle aisle when I happened to notice that the Food Network has a line of candles (how long has this been going on? I feel like I’ve been living under a rock, […]...

Braised Chicken Thighs with Black Tea Blackberry Sauce {Paleo}

Braised Chicken Thighs in Black Tea Blackberry Sauce 1

This paleo recipe for Braised Chicken Thighs with Black Tea Blackberry Sauce is a great way to savor summer fruit. Summer’s not over yet. It’s winding down fast, but it’s not yet gone. Although I’m looking forward to fall like the dickens, I’m trying to make the fullest of summer produce before it’s gone. As in, stuff my face with any/every summer fruit/vegetable I can, as often as I can. At this point, summer produce even preempts chocolate for me (gasp)....

20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet

20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet 1

This quick-cooking 20-Minute Chicken Fajita Quinoa Dinner Skillet is cooked on the stovetop, and is a great recipe to have up your sleeve for those busy summer nights when you don’t want to heat up the oven or fire up the grill! It’s a great way to use leftover chicken too. So, Mike still won’t eat quinoa. I wish we could be one of those happy dinner households where they make one meal and all sit down to enjoy the same thing together like The Brady Bunch or something. That has just never been the case with us....

Blue Cheese, Chicken, and Cauliflower Skillet with Bacon, Walnut, and Date Topping

Blue Cheese, Chicken, and Cauliflower Skillet with Bacon, Walnut, and Date Topping

I go through phases when I just don’t feel like cooking. At all. Sometimes, if I’m really burned out, the better part of a week will go by before I feel inspired to cook. That’s when Mike gets to do one of his favorite things: live off the food from the Pakistani restaurant a block from where we live. It’s a windfall for him and a win for me too since I get a much-needed break and time to recharge....
