After some experimenting, I'm excited to share my own super easy version of this Asian-inspired dish made in one of my all-time favorite kitchen appliances, my slow cooker!
My grandmother is known for both her Crepes and her "Apple Slices." And I don't just mean apples cut into slices. It is what she calls her version of apple pie, and maybe it's because she has such a big family (soon to be 28 of us!).
Hi! I’m Amy from Super Healthy Kids, and I’m so happy Lisa invited me to share one of our family recipes with you. These Pineapple Coconut Muffins are light and sweet with pineapples and honey, and they make us feel like we’re on a tropical island
Using already cooked chicken is so convenient, and when it's certified USDA organic with simple ingredients that don't include antibiotics or anything artificial, there's nothing to be guilty of whatsoever. My family gobbled up this chicken salad and asked for more, and the best part was how it took me no time at all to pull it together.
I've got a great potluck dish that will be a hit at your next holiday party. The recipe for this melted cheesy (and healthy - hello broccoli!) goodness couldn't be any easier, so get ready to enjoy.
One of the things I love about eating spaghetti squash is that my mental veggie consumption checklist for my family goes ... check, check, and check! Plus it tastes great too - especially in this Spaghetti Squash Carbonara recipe.
I love the idea of homemade gnocchi, but it’s a lot of work ...this ricotta spinach gnocchi is the perfect quick alternative in my opinion!
Stocks (which are interchangeable with broths) are the base for many homemade soups and sauces. I used to always cook with store-bought chicken broth, but now there are several reasons why I prefer making it at home (using this recipe below that has been adapted from the Joy of Cooking). While it takes a little …
Make a double batch of these easy breakfast burritos. They are delicious no matter what time of day, and freezer-friendly to boot. WooHoo!
This is a guest post by Pamela Salzman with PamelaSalzman.com. Her blog was introduced to me by Shawn (our FB Moderator). Pamela's Instagram feed always leaves me feeling hungry, so I thought you guys would love a guest recipe from her today! :)
This Braised Cabbage with Potatoes and Bratwurst recipe brings together an unlikely combination of ingredients that create one tasty, satisfying meal, which can be served for dinner or breakfast (or lunch!). I especially love the variety of flavors and colors and the fact that I never cooked with or even thought I liked red cabbage before experimenting with it for this meal. It just…
These loaded black bean burgers are packed with veggies, fiber, and southwestern flavor. They're kid-friendly and freezer-friendly too!
Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
While we all know there are many snacks that contain processed ingredients and don't provide any real value, there are plenty of decent options out there. Here's a list of some of our favorite real food snacks:
The UN has declared 2016 to be the International Year of the Pulses. We are proud to be an ambassador of this issue, so you can look forward to a series of recipes. First up is Spinach Chana Dal, otherwise known as yellow lentils with spinach.
This recipe for Easy Couscous Stuffed Tomatoes is such a great way to close out summer! I served it along with The Best Whole Chicken in the Crock Pot and a simple spinach salad, and it turned out to be a super quick and easy weeknight meal. Enjoy :)
When I get around to making these breadcrumbs I usually make a big batch and store the leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer. This way, it isn’t such a pain when a recipe calls for breadcrumbs.
One of my favorite things to do is take a recipe (that looks awesome!) and make it as easy to cook as possible. So I was excited to see a Braised Short Rib recipe in Food and Wine Magazine that I knew I could turn into a slow cooker recipe.
My tasty Braised Chicken Marsala recipe is restaurant-quality, yet you can throw it together in no time at all on a busy weeknight!
Before you think your picky eater will turn their nose up to spinach in a smoothie please listen to my story first!
Many Fried Green Tomato recipes involve lots of steps, including a milk bath and adding seasonings and regular flour to your corn meal. I'm sure they all taste fabulous, but my goal in the kitchen is almost always quick and easy (and tasting great, of course!).
This easy one-dish meal features the flavors of tamales in the simplicity of a pie. It will definitely be making another appearance at our house! Try it!
We all have go-to recipes we turn to on busy nights when we don't have time to cook. Or nights when we just don't feel like cooking. This Easy Mexican Chicken is one of ours.
After a couple attempts, my husband - and the kids too - have given this Creamy Lentil Lasagna two thumbs up, and I'm excited to share it with you today. My 4th grader even ate the leftovers for breakfast if that tells you anything.
Spaghetti is a super easy go-to weeknight meal that I am so thankful for when everyone is hungry and I just don't have the time (or energy!) to follow a recipe. BUT I've quickly learned this spaghetti bolognese adds a lot more flavor for not too much additional effort, so it's quickly becoming one of our new favorites
Tacos are a big favorite at my house, so I love it when I can cut the meat with a can of beans and make it last longer. But what's better (I've learned) is adding in some mushrooms in addition to the beans to stretch things even further.
This is a fun twist on lettuce wraps that will impress your family (and company) for sure! Plus, since lentils are one of the fastest cooking pulses (see below) and it takes just minutes to cook shrimp, this could easily be a weeknight meal.
Like mac n' cheese? Then you’ll love this cauliflower gratin packed with veggies instead of noodles. My 10 year-old was surprised it was even cauliflower!
Follow my tips and everyone at your holiday gathering will gobble up the goodies on your holiday appetizer platter. Also makes a great potluck dish!
Last weekend we hosted our very first Dinner Club in our new home! It was so nice to be settled enough to entertain friends (although, believe me, we still had plenty of unfinished projects going on in the background - welcome to moving!).
This fresh, vegetarian Lentil Sloppy Joe recipe is not only good for you, but it'll cost less to make too. This dish is comforting, filling, and nourishing.
My cheesy kale quiche is worth trying on even your most reluctant eaters. Serve on its own for breakfast or as a side with your lunch or dinner.
I've got a super easy new recipe to share with you today ... Vegetarian Slow Cooker Black Bean Tacos! This simple and tasty dish is from my friend Gina's new Skinnytaste Fast and Slow cookbook.
This braised pork chop recipe is one of those dishes where the aroma compels my family to yell into the kitchen, “Whatcha making??”
Sometimes mama needs something other than water. Can I get an Amen?! These recipes will keep you hydrated, support digestion, ward off morning sickness, ...
If you are looking for some “real food” holiday dishes to add to your Thanksgiving table then you are in the right place! Below is a fabulous recipe for the pictured Chestnut and Prosciutto Bread Stuffing that you put inside your turkey or bake as a separate dish on the side. We also have some …
