For the next few weeks this blog is going to bounce back and forth in between fun and fancy recipes for the holidays, and super duper easy meals you can make in between those holiday events. Because we want to save all our strength for the stream of dinners and parties and friends and family fun that is right ahead of us, and that means having an arsenal of easy peasy suppers for those other days…and that is where this so very simple, so very scrumptious recipe for slow cooker honey chicken comes in. So grab that slow cooker I know you have somewhere and let’s make it!
We are currently in a salmon situation in our house, because every once in a while we get a little, oh, INDULGENT (more on that in a bit) and I have to get us back on a heathy eating track. And that always involves salmon, which is not only one of our favorite fishies, but is also a superfood (so are tea and blueberries by the way, two of my other faves!). And when you are doing a deep dive into healthy eating, anything that is a superfood sounds good to me. In this case, I kept a little of the naughtiness going by bathing my salmon in a mixture of bourbon and lime and other good things, but just enough to give it a little sass. Super good and good for you…let’s make it!
Is there anything more completely comfort food than supper out of a bowl? I DON’T THINK SO. And while I do love bowls full of soup and oatmeal and pastina with egg and cheese, my most recent supper in a bowl crush has been this sesame salmon rice bowl. Tender flaky roasted salmon, buttery avocado, sassy scallions and a lime and mustard dressing, all nestled in a bed of rice and served in your favorite bowl. Are you ready for some easy, healthy comfort food deliciousness? In a bowl? Let’s make it!
This easy shrimp dumpling stir-fry recipe was born out of my love and devotion to a certain chili sauce (more on that in a bit), but it also combines two of my very favorite things – shrimp and vegetable dumplings – with a whole lot of veggies and very little time. You can also customize it to your hearts content in terms of the ingredients, depending on what type of stir-fry you are in the mood for. Quick, flexible, good and good for you – what more could you ask for in a stir-fry recipe? Let’s make it!
This chilled sesame spinach is officially my favorite recipe so far for Summer 2016. And yes, I know summer is only officially a few hours old, but since I consider it summer as soon as you can start eating dinner outside, I’ve had a little extra time to make this official proclamation. And so far, this cool, tangy, super easy bowl of deliciousness is my happy healthy go-to summer side dish. Please don’t tell the corn and the tomatoes (their turn will come!)…but for now chilled sesame spinach wins the summer day. Let’s make it!
This recipe for super easy salmon tartare was definitely inspired by my enduring love for all things sushi. Really really good wild-caught salmon mixed up gently with avocado, scallions, sesame seeds and a few other things to hold it together. A little bit spicy, a little bit creamy, a whole lot of delicious. And as easy as slicing up the salmon and avocado and the scallions and mixing them all up together – it’s almost not fair to call it an actual recipe. So whether you want to wow your friends with show-off appetizer, or serve it up on a regular old Tuesday night…let’s make it!
