Slow Roasted Salmon with Yogurt Tahini Dressing

Happy April, y’all!  I write to y’all (as usual) from a very dark room that’s only illuminated by a night light and a humidifier light.  The newly 5 year old boy is just about to fall asleep, so I have about 5 more minutes to watch this kiddo fall into (hopefully) a deep slumber.  I’ve…

Baked Pork Chops with Roasted Asparagus and Cauliflower Gnocchi

These pork chops with roasted asparagus and cauliflower gnocchi all come together in less than 30 minutes and everything comes together at the same time without thinking about it.  Here I share some tips for cooking the juiciest pork chops with a flavorful but simple seasoning and roasting asparagus to crispy perfect.  Don’t forget some tricks to searing cauliflower gnocchi with added flavor, too (gnocchi is from a bag, of course!  Ain’t nobody got time for that!)

One Pot Chickpea Tikka Masala

This one pot chickpea tikka masala is vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, and gluten-free.  Basically, it’s perfect for all you January dieters out there and is packed with immune-boosting ginger and a concoction of warm, Indian spices. 

Baked Rosemary Lemon Chicken

Look who’s baaaaaaaaaaaaack!  And I’m back with this baked rosemary lemon chicken… a meal that’ll take 5 minutes of prep and 30 minutes of total cooking time.  Because by now you should know I’m all about the fast, healthy meals (and indulging in all the unhealthy treats along the way, too…duh). Where did I go,…

Beef Stew with Carrots, Potatoes, and Mushrooms

Hey, stew!  You’re such a good companion on a Sunday, when the Sunday scaries set in (you know, the moment it starts getting dark and you realize you have to go to work the next day…those scaries).  This is not a weeknight dinner for us by any means because it requires you to do a…

Healthy Baked Coconut Shrimp

Here I am, bringing you another easy but delicous weeknight meal!  I’ve had coconut shrimp at a few different restaurants, and I don’t want to brag but these are better than any coconut shrimp I’ve gotten…anywhere.  They’re not fried and soggy.  They’re baked and crispy.  And they have coconut oil in them, and, therefore, they…

Weeknight Chicken Tortellini Soup

If chicken soup is good for the soul…then chicken tortellini soup is even better.  Chicken soup has a warmness that’s undeniable and adding some tortellini to the mixture makes it even more fulfilling and cozy.  This meal is perfect for a fall weeknight.  We made it last night after a busy day of work, then…

Baked Teriyaki Salmon with Roasted Broccoli

Today was the first day of true “organized” activities for the kiddos.  I took B to her first ballet class and John took C to soccer.  Apparently, C fared much better than B.  They wouldn’t let me watch or stand near her room.  Instead, I had to eaves drop on all of the dance moms…

Sheet Pan Chicken Caprese

Just so you don’t get it twisted…it’s still summer.  Heirloom tomatoes are still at Whole Foods.  Corn is still being sold.   Peaches are abundant.  There’s no reason to panic, people.  It’s totally summer for a couple more weeks.  I refuse to go all fall on y’all until it’s officially fall.  I feel like starting to…
