Baked Chicken and Chilis

Super easy and tasty! Make this one when you are short on time or energy...

Clove spice chicken

Delicious West African recipe I learned from a friend. Chilis can be added to spice it up. Original recipe uses chicken thighs, but I modified this a little to use the leaner breast meat. Serve with Jasmin Rice and salad or cooked spinach with the sauce spooned over it.

Curried Spinach

This is a basic spinach recipe that can be modified with some chilis and paneer to make sag paneer. But it is yummy as a side dish as well...

Walnut Dijon Dressing

Light Dijon Dressing with walnut accent. Perfect for summer nicoise salads or use instead of mayo for green bean and potato salad

Strawberry Vinegarette

Fresh and delicious with crispy lettuce orange bell peppers slices and some feta cheese. A great way to use strawberries that are getting flimsy...

Veggie Mashed Potatoe Pie

This is the pure vegetable version, but it is also delicious with re-hydrated TVP, lentils and different varieties of beans...

Quinoa Protein Pancakes

These are a fast and healthy version of my favorite breakfast item. I cook a batch of these on Sunday and then put them in baggies to eat on my way to work. Makes a good mid morning snack too.

Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal

A high powered breakfast to give you the kick start you need.

Maple Orange Sweet Potato Casserole

A nice alternative to the calorie intensive pecan-covered variety.

Spicy Butternut Squash and Cauliflower Soup

This is a great soup for a cold day. Goes great as a starter course but is also hearty enough to hold its own at lunch.
