Greek Pasta Salad

With the temperatures continuing to rise {at least here in Houston}, cold salads are a staple around our house. I like that I can prepare a dish without having to heat up any appliance in my kitchen yet still have a refreshing meal for lunch or dinner. And, with Memorial Day just around the corner, this pasta salad is the perfect addition to any get together you are attending this weekend!

Cheesy Bacon, Tomato Spinach Frittata

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals. So much so that we often have breakfast for dinner on the reg! In an effort to spice up our standard eggs, bacon and toast, I whipped up this easy bacon, tomato and spinach frittata!

Quick Dinner: Almond Crusted Fish

With the holidays coming up, it’s becoming harder to plan and prepare meals at home with the abundance of activities at nighttime. Whether these obligations are errands to run, school performances, or family get togethers, the nights that are available to cook at home always seems to dwindle during this time of the year. It’s important to continue to plan and prep ahead of time and choose meals that are going to quick and easy but still healthy. I previously talked about one of my favorite “go-to” meals when time is short – Panko Crusted Chicken. Today, I’m back with another favorite of ours – Almond Crusted Fish.

Eggplant Chili

This flavorful chili is the perfect meal to kick off fall and winter with its easy prep and cleanup! And, the eggplant provides a heartiness that you will not miss if you choose to make it meatless.

Cooler weather and chili seem to go hand in hand. Whenever our temperatures drop, it is one of the first dishes I make.  Growing up, chili was the meal we ate every Halloween evening, so it only seemed natural to continue the theme of chili as a ‘kickoff meal’ to fall! It’s also a perfect dish to simmer on a Sunday afternoon and have for the week to eat off of for lunch or dinner. I wanted to add a spin to the typically chili recipe by adding additional vegetables and using ground turkey for my meat-lovin’ husband, and I think my Eggplant Chili is a new favorite of ours! This dish could be easily made vegetarian/vegan by eliminating the ground turkey and using chickpeas in place of kidney beans for that extra protein punch!
