ChaCha's Quick Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal For Two

This is a morning staple at our house - it's tastier and better for you than the pre-packaged stuff, and takes just a few minutes to throw together.

"No Time to Cook" Citrusy Mexican-Style Shrimp

This recipe literally was the result of a long day and a little luck. It's pleasantly spicy and low on calories - great accompanied by a salad or atop rice!

Slow-Cooker Split Pea & Ham Soup

Protein packed and perfect for a hearty lunch or dinner, this is a variation on the Whole Foods recipe by the same name. They called for a 16 oz bag of split peas... mine was 20, so I modified the recipe to make it work! I also used red instead of yellow onion, and used thyme in place of bay (because I was out).

Sweet & Smoky Grilled Sweet Potatoes

A delicious way to incorporate some vitamins into a grilled meal!

Easy Crock Pot Chicken Curry Rogan Josh

Simple staples I keep in my pantry became a great dinner while I worked!

First-Time Tofu Shirataki and Turkey Stir Fry

This is how I prepared tofu Shirataki noodles for the first time, utilizing just pantry items and some left over turkey. Of course it was the one time I was out of frozen stir-fry veggie mix, so I'd suggest adding a bag if you want to bulk it up!

Bacony Old Bay & Thyme Roasted Potatoes

This simple roasted potato side makes any meal seem like you spent tons of time on it... and bacon makes it seem like a total cheat, when it's not!

"Kitchen Sink" Quick One Pot Chili

This is something I threw together one night that has turned into a "go to". It's a great source of protein, and a stellar one to freeze for another time or to pack up as lunch.

What really makes the recipe work is adding your personal flavor to it -- I suggest a number of spices, but you can add as much as you want and adjust it to your taste. Remember, spices are awesome because they add FLAVOR without adding fat and calories!

Shepherd's Salad - Coban Salatasi

A fresh and delicious salad that compliments any meal!
