Lemon Chicken and Red Potato Soup

Welcome to the 3rd and final day of my plan for eating clean on a budget! For my final recipe, I decided to create something that will warm you up on a cold winter night. The star of the show tonight is lemon chicken and red potato soup! Honestly, I’m not usually a big soup…

Mediterranean Meatball Bowl with Spicy Roasted Garlic

Welcome to day two of my plan for eating (mostly) clean on a budget! The star tonight will be Mediterranean meatballs with a tomato and cucumber salad smothered in tzatziki sauce and served with a side of spicy roasted broccoli! This is an absolutely delicious and fun way to incorporate new flavors into your recipe…

Sesame Garlic Chicken Thighs with Cauliflower Fried Rice

Welcome to day one of my 3 day plan for clean eating on a budget! Each day, I will post a grocery list along with an estimated cost. I will also post a list of items that you may already have in your pantry. It is important to pay attention to both lists to make…

Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

Well, it seems that winter is upon us. I’m so dang excited about it. There is nothing I love more than the first snow of the year. Except for the second or third snow of the year. I love waking up to frost on the ground and air so cold that you can see your…

Smoky Stuffed Zucchini

Happy Monday, all! Man, those words may have never come out of my mouth in the same sentence before. I have lots to be excited about right now, though! First things first. I got my house all decorated for Christmas last night, and it feels ah-mazing. This is absolutely my favorite time of year. I…

Loaded Cauliflower and Chicken Casserole

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had a few days off work (gotta love bank life!) and got to spend the whole break with family and friends. But now it’s back to reality for a few weeks. I know I should probably be over casseroles after literally eating them for days, but I’m…

Garlic Beef Tips with Parsnip Purée and Roasted Sprouts

So, I’ve been MIA lately. Daylight is not on my side right now, which means not-so-great food pictures. The lack of good pictures has deterred me from posting, but that is a shallow, not great excuse for dropping off the face of the earth. Please forgive me. Hopefully this dish will make up for the…

Triple Chocolate Vegan Tarte

Confession time (again). Sometimes I worry that my hands will permanently smell like garlic. So on days when I’m feeling extra worried, I suddenly get “inspired” to lay off the savory and try my hand at something sweet (well glory!). Confession number two. I hate baking. Hate it. I married a sweets lover, and he…

One Pan Chicken and Asparagus with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

I’ve accomplished something huge tonight. Drumroll, please. I made a one pan dinner. A concept that, until tonight, has evaded me. You can ask anyone who has stepped foot in my kitchen while I’m cooking; I have a knack for using almost every pan, bowl, and cutting board I own just to cook dinner. We…

Creamy Chicken Fajita Bowls

It was really only a matter of time before the truth came out. Though Brussels sprouts and Heirloom cherry tomatoes have a special place in my heart, there are two food groups that hold an equally special place. One of them happens to be… yep, you guessed it! Mexican! There’s something so comforting about sitting down…

Warm Shaved Sprout Salad

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to Brussels sprouts. I know it isn’t very Fourth-y of me, but this warm shaved sprout salad recipe had to be shared today. It’s too good not to. My love for sprouts started at my friend Chelsea’s house a couple of years back. She had me…

Balsamic Heirloom Tomato Chicken

Let’s talk tomatoes. I grew up in a family full of tomato-loving people. My granddad used to have a pretty big garden growing in his back yard. He would grow squash, onions, okra, green beans, and yes – tomatoes. I used to love going out to the garden with him to look at everything he’d…
