Best Tuna Sandwich

I’m a big fan of tuna salad sandwiches. They’re easy and quick to make, are relatively healthy, and are equally as good as an office lunch or in a picnic basket.

There are three key ingredients at work with this version. First off is the lemon juice and zest…it gives the tuna a light, summery flavor that hits immediately. Second is the toast…if you try it straight from the bowl, it just isn’t as good; you need a warm, dry piece of bread to help the flavors burst in your mouth. Third is the cottage cheese…you don’t taste it at all, but it makes the tuna salad so rich and creamy.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

I just whipped this recipe up to use a little leftover chicken I had and to feed my "hungry as a bear" husband some lunch and it was a hit. You may wish to season a little different according to taste.

Inside Out Burgers

Lean beef can dry out easily, and it lacks the flavor of fatter cuts. So how do you create a burger you'll crave? You fill it with the good stuff.

Rachel's Primal Sweet Potato Fries or Chips

Here's my recipe for primal chips or fries (depending on how you slice them.) This is based off of a recipe from 150 Things to Make with Roast Chicken by Tony Rosenfeld.

If you're not "Primal to the core" you could add 1 teaspoon brown sugar to this mix.

Summer Squash, Carrot and garlic pasta

When visiting my friend Shelly, we took a long walk to the local farmers market and bought a variety of fresh summer squash and carrots. Since I love pan frying veggies and garlic, I thought we'd give this a try. It was super yummy, possibly higher in fat than I would like but you can use less olive oil.

Unchained Recipe Contest - Black Bean Burrito

I love eating at Chipotle and even if I get the burrito without the tortilla all of the extras and the serving sizes of everything packs on a lot of calories. While I love the taste of their rice it is not brown rice, which I prefer to use. I also find it much cheaper to make this at home, rather than buying it. I prefer to make my own salsa rather than buying it in a jar. But of course you can substitute if you prefer. But this one tastes great! It is always a hit at cookouts and with my family. My secret ingredients to the beans are thyme and sage. They add so much flavor. I attended a vegetarian cooking class and the instructor talked about adding those two herbs to everything to give a richer and more satisfying taste. This was the first thing that I tried them in and it is delicious. This recipe is not very difficult to make nor is it time consuming. What will take the most time is the rice, which can be made ahead. I am very much an add a little of this and that person, so I did find it hard to pin down measurements! Fast Food Category

A very delicious variation on chicken salad. Using Dijon and honey in the dressing make the difference. It's great to make a whole batch and just eat on it all week. Super crunchy, super good, you'll want to serve this at all your brunches and lunches.

Tortilla Vegetable pizza

If you like thin crust pizza this is a good thing to try. I prefer it to the store bought crusts which are full of carbs, sodium, etc. This is also very versitile. You can use any cheese, toppings or sauce you prefer. This recipe makes a basic sauce from scratch but store bought is fine also

Don't let the tofu put you off, this tastes wonderful.
You could also add a packet of frozen stir fry vegetables if you wanted a larger vegetable serve.
