Lemon Honey Mustard Salmon

Salmon is one of my go-to meals – my husband and I both love it and it can be cooked in 10 minutes. It also holds up well during the week, so it’s a great fish to cook on Sunday and use all week! You probably have a “go-to” way that you prepare your salmon…

Greek Yogurt-Pesto Barley Salad

Pesto is one of those flavors that adds so much to anything it’s added to – a sandwich, salad dressing, pasta salad, pasta – anything! With that said, you don’t need a ton of it to get the flavor across and that’s where the idea came along to bulk it up with greek yogurt! I…

Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal

There’s something so comforting about oatmeal on a rainy day – and Monday was one of those as you can see in this picture! Although, I can’t complain – I really needed to do some spring cleaning/organizing and it’s so much easier to do with weather like that! This is one of my favorite oatmeal…

Mini Marinara Turkey Meatloaves

Meatloaf sometimes gets a bad reputation, but I’m here to change that (or try to anyways)! My mom always made it for us growing up and then we’d bring it for lunch as cold sandwiches, so good – although I remember getting some looks at the school lunch table ha! I made this recipe in…

Sweet Potato Kale Egg Bake

Egg bakes just scream BRUNCH, don’t they?? I love them for so many reasons! You can make them in advance, you can’t mess them up, they feed a crowd, work for vegetarians (assuming no meat goes in) and are SO inexpensive with eggs being the main protein source. Have I convinced you yet?? White potatoes…

Kiwi Walnut Oatmeal Muffins

If you are one of those people that avoids muffins because they are “bad” for you, this recipe will make you think again! What makes a muffin a “muffin” is the shape, that’s really it and as long as they are comprised of healthy ingredients – what’s not to like?!? You’ll notice that my muffin…

Passion Fruit Oatmeal

I was in Mexico with my family the first time I ever tried passion fruit. I was immediately hooked and ate about 20 of them every day until we headed back home! My mom tried so hard to find them where we lived in CT but none of the stores sold them at the time….

Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Oatmeal Bake

Strawberries and cream is one of those combinations that just sounds delicious, doesn’t it?? As you can tell, strawberries are the fruit of the week and I’m finding so many amazing ways to use them – same as I did with pineapples last week! I hope you give this recipe a try – adding the…

Caprese-Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

I was always nervous to cook with portabellas, they just seemed intimidating! I loved them at restaurants but never cooked with them myself – what was I thinking? They are so simple once you know the basic technique for “preparing” them and are so versatile! When you buy them, they normally come with the stems…

Balsamic Yogurt Chicken

I know what you are thinking, yogurt – gross! Give me a chance to explain! I’ve always heard that yogurt is a great marinade, especially for lean cuts of meat (like chicken breasts), because it keeps the meat super moist. I’ve seen it used in Indian cooking before but honestly never thought to try it…

Lemon Orange Chicken

I absolutely love citrus flavors (you are probably already noticing that or will soon!) – they add such nice flavor and brightness and are so easy and cheap to find! I normally just do honey mustard chicken but was getting a bit sick of that combination and decided to do a lemon/orange version – mainly…

Double Berry Pecan Oatmeal Bake

As much as I love oatmeal, sometimes even 10 extra minutes before work is too much time to spare on breakfast. An alternative is an oatmeal bake – basically an oatmeal casserole – and they are the perfect solution and last all week when kept in the fridge. Just portion out a piece each morning…
