Taco Salad

While this recipe isn’t exactly rocket science, and isn’t unique to me, I think it’s such a classic that it deserves mentioning. It’s delicious, fresh, easy, and works well when catering to a group that combines herbivores and carnivores, or picky eaters. This recipe is great for busy weeknights because you can prepare and store the ingredients separately ahead of time, or use it as a way to stretch leftovers from a taco night.

Deconstructed Sushi Salad

As with most of my recipes, this one was birthed out of a craving… This time it was for Sushi! I don’t tolerate rice or soy, so I had to get a bit creative to come up with something similar.

This recipe serves 2 – 4 adults depending on the size of appetite. Continue reading “Greek Chicken Wraps and Roasted (Sweet) Potatoes”

Beety Meaty Soup

This soup is both hearty, and comforting, while being easy to make and freeze in portions. I’ve made a few variations, but this is the basic recipe. It usually takes me about 15 minutes of prep time, and another 30 or so of cooking time depending on which vegetables I’ve included (and how small the pieces are). If you want a thicker, heartier soup, add less liquid, or cook it at a higher temperature for longer so some of it boils off. Continue reading “Beety Meaty Soup”
