Meat and Poultry

Easy Spinach and Parmesan Stuffed Chicken Breasts

I love this meal because it’s an all-in-one package deal. No, it’s not a microwave dinner! It’s veggies and protein all bundled up together. Plus is has garlic + parmesan: the best combination since peanut butter and chocolate? I would say so.



Healthier Burrito Bowl with Crockpot Taco Meat

I had Chipotle for lunch and I don’t regret it one bit. I got the full treatment: sour cream, cheese, extra cheese, hot salsa, and barbacoa meat along with the usual rice and beans. If you don’t like Chipotle, I’m not sure we can be friends. Well, unless you make your own burritos, burrito bowls, […]



Healthy Spicy Turkey Burgers

Juicy. Healthy. Spicy. I’ve always wondered why people think healthy burgers have to be dry, rubbery, and bland. Probably because most people get their “healthy” burgers in the frozen section of the supermarket. But once you try this recipe, you will no longer be reaching for those frozen “healthy” patties in the frozen aisle.



Crock Pot Shredded Beef (Barbacoa)

I bought a slow cooker! And I’m in love. The funny thing is, I’m pretty sure I didn’t know what a slow cooker was when I was growing up. My mom never used it because whenever she cooked falling-of-the-bone tender meat, it was in a pressure cooker. But I gotta tell ya, pressure cookers scare […]



Spicy Indian Style Meatballs

   When it comes to finger food, Indian cuisine is perfect. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that you traditionally eat Indian food with…your fingers! Ha, that was my one corny joke I’m allowed on this blog. I promise, no more 🙂



Indian Curried Chicken and Rice (Biryani)

I’m going to try to keep this short because I need to give you this recipe. It’s a family secret, so I feel a little naughty giving it out in the blogosphere like this. But I think it would be a bigger crime to keep it from the world.



Spicy Chicken and Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

It’s starting to finally feel like autumn. I love this weather because I get to wear all my favorite types of clothes: jackets, scarves, riding boots. What girl doesn’t want to always look like they’re going apple picking or horseback riding? This is also the perfect season to put pumpkin puree in everything and to […]



Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I never thought I’d be a lettuce wrap “type of girl”. You know what I’m talking about. When the server comes around at happy hour, after a long day of work, all I want is something wrapped in empty carbs. Flour tortillas, breading, you name it. But at one of these happy hours, somebody once […]



Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing

The other day, my friends and I were talking about heading over to our favorite Thai restaurant in town for dinner. Sure enough, the restaurant is closed on the day we wanted to go. But, since I was already drooling over the thought of peanut sauce and spicy chicken dishes, I decided to walk over […]



Seasoned Grilled Burgers with Caramelized Onions

It’s almost the fourth of July! There are few things that represent summer more than fireworks, ice cream, lemonade, and burgers! Grilling burgers on this particular holiday is something that has just been done as far back as I can remember. When I was growing up, of course it wasn’t me doing the grilling. So, naturally […]
