20-Minute Summer Vegetable Curry with Seared Salmon 1

It’s amazing how much technique effects the final outcome when you’re cooking.

The mere thought of green beans made me gag as a kid until I had them for dinner at a friend’s house and realized they aren’t inherently mush. (Sorry, Mom…you were notorious for overcooking the beans!)

I disliked fried eggs until I learned how to cook them so that the whites are set and the yolks are runny. (The only thing worse than chalky overcooked egg yolk is icky undercooked egg white goop…ugh.)

And I thought I hated fish skin until I realized that it can be crisp and flavorful. (Hello wild-caught salmon and a short stint in a very hot pan.)

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos

Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos 1

These Cheesy Refried Bean Burritos are a hit with kids and adults alike! And bonus, they come together fast and are freezer-friendly. When I dormed in college, my friends took it upon themselves to teach me how to cook their favorite meals. An Indian boy across the hall cooked me vegetable curry. My Italian friend would cook me her grandmother’s recipe for chicken with basil cream sauce. And my roommate’s specialty was refried bean and bell pepper burritos....

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....

Quick Chicken Paprika Soup 1

I’m a planner. (I may have mentioned that here before or you may have guessed. Or you may know from personal experience, and if that’s the case and I drove you nuts with my 1001 lists all I can say is I’m sorry. Truly. But remember, like Monica’s label maker, sometimes organization comes in handy. ;) ) Anyway....

Champ-Topped Vegetable Beef Guinness Casserole

Right now you’re probably wondering what the heck Champ is. Champ, my friends, is an Irish thing; basically mashed potatoes with scallion and loads of butter. (Because we all know potatoes and butter go together like white on rice…or, well, like potatoes and butter.)...

Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers with Garlicky Zucchini and Quinoa Recipe {Plus a Q&A with Denise Austin and a Giveaway of Her 10-Week Health and Fitness Plan}

Tomato-Basil Turkey Burgers with Garlicky Zucchini and Quinoa

For nearly everyone I know, February is their least favorite month (even my sis, and it’s her birthday month!). By the time February rolls around, the excitement of starting a new year has worn off and so has the novelty of snow…and the need to constantly bundle up and chug soup to stay warm. Green grass, leafy trees, and color in general are still a long way off and everything just seems kind-of blah. I’ve got something that’s full of excitement and energy to warm you up on a cold February day…how about a chat with Denise Austin, some fabulous fitness motivation, and her recipe […]...
