Potatoes to me are like blank canvases. They look and taste the way you make them, which is probably why everyone likes them. I don’t think I have ever met someone who doesn’t like some sort of potato dish.
These hasselback potatoes are a fun twist on baked potatoes. They look different and adventurous on your plate which is always a great thing when having people over.
Super easy and obviously really cheap to make, I mean hello they are taters, the cheap mans diet! You just can’t go wrong with these. (more…)
I’ve loved brussel sprouts ever since I was little. I know, weird that a child would LOVE them, but I did. My mom would even pack them in my lunch and I would eat them cold. If only more people in my life enjoyed them as much as I did it would make my life a little easier. I have slowly started to draw people over to the brussel side, but it’s been a challenge.
I tend to eat brussels plain – but still tasty – by roasting them with a little salt, pepper and garlic. In an attempt to up my brussels repertoire, I created this recipe which adds another dimension of flavor to my usual method. (more…)
This is one of my all-time favorite salads…. EVER. It might be because it includes mangos and goat cheese, two of my top 5 things to eat, but I swear this salad is fantastic and a crowd pleasure.
Something about the sweetness of the mango combined with the smooth soft flavor of the cheese and then topped with the tartness of the dressing just creates this explosion of yummy goodness in your belly. (more…)
In college I was busier than I am now. I had a job, class and an internship and I would literally be running out the door with no time to cook during the week. For an eater like me, this proposed a challenge. How do I eat quality healthy food on the go?! Also, me being hungry is not good for ANYONE.
This is when I came up with a weekly healthy chicken. I would make this chicken every Sunday and keep it in my fridge for salads, sandwiches or dinners on the go. I have to say it was one of the best ideas I’ve ever had. This chicken has enough flavors that it isn’t bland and at the same time it doesn’t have an overpowering flavor that makes it difficult to pair other ingredients with it.
This is really the chicken that anyone can make and not mess up. So for all of you who say “I can’t cook”, trust me, try making this and see for yourself that you CAN cook. (more…)
