BBQ Cilantro Lime Chicken & Grilled Vegetables

BBQ Cilantro Lime Chicken & Grilled Vegetables

It’s summer and that means that almost everything in our household gets made on the barbecue. There’s nothing better than doing 15 minutes of prep inside and then moving out to the patio and just sitting and relaxing outside while cooking up your dinner. Well, I don’t think there’s much better. It really is the little things sometimes.

Crunchy Chickpea Summer Salad

Crunchy Chickpea Summer Salad

I know, I know, I know… I said I was back on track and then I went a week without putting up a post. It is so hard to get back into a routine once you’ve let it slide. I feel like a broken record but I really am (mostly) back on track now and I actually have A LOT of projects lined up. I’ve been going to yard sales (my favourite!) and I have lots of stuff to show you so please keep posted! Now, all that aside, I’ve also been whipping up some to-die-for recipes (and they’re healthy!) that you are going to love. This just so happens to be one of my recent favourites. chickpeasalad

Quick Kale Omelette Lunches

Quick Kale Omelette Lunches

Today I’ve got another quick bulk lunch idea. As I’ve mentioned before, I get weekly organic fruit and vegetable deliveries and they’re hard to keep up with. Sometimes I have a whole bunch of vegetables that I really don’t know what to do with. Then a thought struck. Omelettes!

Asparagus and Provolone Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Beets and Lemon Pepper Rice

Asparagus and Provolone Stuffed Chicken with Roasted Beets and Lemon Pepper Rice

Last night I decided to reorganize my whole kitchen. I went grocery shopping and came to the shocking realization that nothing in my kitchen was in the right place and I HAD to reorganize it. I switched up my whole pantry, cleaned out my fridge and my freezer, the whole nine yards. Afterwards, when everything was finally in its place, I still had to make dinner and I promised myself that I wouldn’t order a pizza (have I mentioned how much I LOVE pizza?). So I made this. It’s easy, it’s healthy and it’s delicious. Make it tonight.

Turkey and Spinach Pasta Bake

Turkey and Spinach Pasta Bake

This was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. I made the biggest pasta bake and it was so delicious that I really didn’t mind having it for dinner three nights in a row. You know what that means? That means I didn’t have to cook at all two nights this week. That’s a big deal. Not that cooking is a huge hardship but it’s nice to know that there is a well rounded homemade meal waiting for you when you get home and all you have to do is heat it up.

Loaded with Fruit Muffins

Loaded with Fruit Muffins

Howdy there! I know I’ve done a couple versions of healthy muffins but these ones are the easiest. I honestly threw this together after work last night and was done with the whole thing in 30 minutes. That’s the time frame that I like. And these are pretty darn delicious and they’re healthy. Win, win, win!

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid | 2 Pesto Dishes

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid | 2 Pesto Dishes

Hello lovelies! I know the recipes have been a little lacking lately so today you get two for the price of one. Lucky devils. What brings about this joyous news? you may ask. Well, it’s my unwavering love for pesto. Remember when we made all that pesto and froze it into an ice cube tray? If not, check out that post here. In that post I promised to give you some ideas on how to use that pesto. Albeit, that was at the end of June and it is now November but better late than never I always say!

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid | Delicata Squash Lasagna

Wednesday Night Kitchen Raid | Delicata Squash Lasagna

Good morning, everyone! Today’s recipe is particularly delicious and can be made in one night and feed you for the rest of the week (depending on your appetite). This lasted my husband and I for three dinners and we didn’t get sick of it because it was just that good! This was 100% a kitchen raid. I had so many vegetables piling up that I needed to get rid of so I decided to make a giant veggie lasagna. I did add some ground chicken to it for some lean protein but you could just as easily leave it out if you’re a vegetarian and I’m sure it would be just as scrumptious.
