    This Chicken Sausage Stew with Potatoes is delicious, easy to make, and on the table in under 25 minutes. Grab the recipe below! Inspired by a dish I have grown to love at an early age. A Hungarian inspired dish, of potatoes and paprika. It was a staple in our household and well-loved by all. #ad This post is a paid partnership with Al Fresco Chicken. However, all opinions and thoughts in this post are my own. Thank you for supporting this blog and the brands that make it possible! I used Al Fresco Sweet Italian Style Chicken Sausage in this version of the dish, with sweet red peppers, celery,…

  • Black Bean Burgers

    Black Bean Burgers

    These Black Bean Burgers are simple to make, packed with flavor and most importantly, they are tasty AF! Serve them on a bun, Ezekiel bread, flatbread, crumbled up on a pita... The options are limitless. I like them on a bed of baby lettuce with tomatoes, onions, avocado, and topped with my Chipotle Chili Dressing.  

  • Kale Soup wit Bacon and Parmesan Cheese

    Kale Soup with Bacon and Parmesan

    So I made soup yesterday. I made this Kale Soup with Bacon and Parmesan cheese. It is super hearty and so delicious! I keep a stocked pantry. If you’ve been to my house you’ve seen the madness that’s in there. Sometimes it’s organized and sometimes it is not because my children love getting their hands on anything they can, every five seconds. This is the absolute perfect time to organize pantries and refrigerators and freezers. It is a great time to use up what you’ve been putting off only because it was easier to go to the store and buy other ingredients. Since we are stuck in the house due…

  • Creamed Spinach with Eggs

    Creamed Spinach with Eggs

    Me and this Creamed Spinach with Eggs dish, go way back to my childhood in Romania. My mother made this Creamed Spinach with Eggs dish often and I imagine it was due to the fact that this is a very inexpensive meal to make and that it’s quick to get on the table for a family of five. It’s also very delicious and filling. Sorry Mom but, I made this my own with a few added ingredients. 🙂 All you need is some essential kitchen ingredients and cooked greens. I used spinach here, but you can substitute with whatever cooked greens you wish. Like: Swiss chard, dandelion greens, etc. I…

  • Salmon Salad

    Salmon Salad

    Looking for an easy lunch option to add to your weekly menu? I’m always looking for new meals that are easy to make and great for a filling lunch at home or to go. This Salmon Salad is a winner in my book. I get the Wild Alaskan Salmon from Costco. It’s a great pantry item to have on hand. It’s very versatile. No salmon for you? Canned Tuna would be a great substitution here. Also, if you prefer freshly baked or sautéed salmon instead, feel free to use that. It all works here. The recipe is super easy and not time consuming at all. It comes together in under…

  • Healthy Chicken Tacos

    Healthy Chicken Tacos

    We love tacos around these parts. And we’re making them at least once a week. When you are busy like we are with work and kids, getting home and cooking a healthy weeknight meal could be challenging. Tacos are a great addition to our rotating dinner list because they are easy to make. They don’t require much effort or time, which is nice. Usually we go with beef tacos and I can’t remember the last time we had chicken tacos. Well, I needed to switch things with these quick healthy chicken tacos on iceberg lettuce. Chicken tenders are ideal for this recipe, which I boiled for about five minutes, shredded them…

  • Red Lentil Soup

    Red Lentil Soup

    Hello, Spring? Where are you? I love winter, but definitely don’t love winters into April. I guess soup season is still in full swing, so warm up with this Red Lentil Soup. It’s a good way to end soup season; on a high note! The spices in this recipe will take over your kitchen, in a wonderful way, and they will warm you right up. Trust me! I used Turmeric, Coriander and Cumin Seed from Spice Islands, Chipotle Chili Pepper from McCormick, Fenugreek Seeds from Frontier Co-op, Bay leaves from Private Selection and Black Mustard Seeds from Amazon. I made this batch and my husband and I ate it fresh that evening, topped with crunchy…

  • Oatmeal Power Bowl

    Who said that oatmeal had to be served sweet all the time?? Don’t get me wrong, I love my oatmeal with brown sugar, a side of fruit, honey or nut butter. But this version is so much better for a savory breakfast, healthy lunch or dinner option. I used Coach’s Oats for this recipe and followed the directions on the package to make the oatmeal. I substituted the water with organic Chicken Broth (I had some left over from another meal and I was happy to not waste it) and seasoned it with salt, pepper and Za’atar. Then I sautéed a half of a red pepper, garbanzo beans and added…

  • Mexican Chicken Soup

    Mexican Chicken Soup

    Looking for a flavorful, hearty and delicious bowl of soup? Then, this Mexican Chicken Soup is for you! I’m a sucker for Mexican spices. Any recipe with Cumin and Mexican Oregano in it is a winner in my book. Now mix these spices with a warm broth, chicken and noodles, and you’ve got yourself a delicious, comforting mix of YUM! Did I mention that this recipe shouldn’t take you more than 30 minutes to make? Oh, and if you go the shredded chicken route (read the TIP below), it should take less than 20 minutes. Will you join my Mexican spices obsession?? Start making this soup and let me know what…
