SPICY ORANGE GLAZED CHICKEN
I need some type of at home take out once a week. This is a little spicy, a little tangy and all the good stuff you want in a light weeknight meal. Add some extra spicy with red pepper, korean five spice seasoning or a little extra Sriracha. Enjoy!
I love pasta, I love lemon and I love this dish. This is a little lighter than most – I try to cut down on flour but not breading it at all just takes away the key aspects of this meal.
CHICKEN POT PIE SOUP
Chicken pot pie without the hassle of pie crust and a little lighter for those of us trying to eat great food but be a little bit healthier. This soup is delicious and when you serve it with some cornbread or croutons, you don’t even miss the crust. Throw it all in a pot, use…
PRIMAVERA CHICKEN TORTELLINI
A delicious pasta for a weeknight, weekend or even for a little cold pasta salad meal prep! I love this recipe because there are endless substitutions and you can always throw it together with whatever vegetables you have. The feta cheese and red pepper flakes give it the kick it needs. Throw it all together…
SOUTHWEST CHICKEN STEW
Need a dinner to throw in the pot and walk away? This is it! Just let your chicken boil, pour your cans in and chop a few onions and peppers. I love this stew because it’s a lot like chicken tortilla soup but with a little twist of the southwest flair.
CROCKPOT PORK TENDERLOIN CARNITAS
Needing a quick meal? Trying to stay on track for the new year but not wanting to sacrifice any flavor? Make these carnitas and you will not be disappointed! I’ve always loved carnitas. Being from Texas we have a taqueria on just about every corner and my order is 50% carnitas and 50% barbacoa. Throw…
SPICY LASAGNA SOUP
Lasagna is clearly a food loved by most. Now the problem is, who has time to throw together layers and layers of lasagna on the weeknight? This lasagna soup is a perfect weeknight meal that has the same flavors as a great lasagna with a fraction of the effort. You can also substitute where needed.…
SKINNIER BEEF STROGANOFF
As a kid I always loved going to my aunt’s house because there was a 90% chance we were having beef stroganoff. I love the creaminess of this meal and how hearty it is. As I got older and realized I probably didn’t need allll of the fat content that is in the original recipe,…
GROUND TURKEY LETTUCE WRAPS
Growing up my two favorite chain restaurants were PF Changs and The Cheesecake Factory. One of the things that has remained the same is how much I love lettuce wraps of all kinds! Most people who I cook any asian dish for think that they have no business attempting to master this genre of food.…
Who needs takeout when you can make it taste even better at home for half the price? I love Thai food – anything with Thai basil and a little spice and you are speaking my language. Thai isn’t something most people think they can do but it is EASY as can be if you just…
