Egg Muffins with Spinach (little quiches)

These are deliciously simple little crustless quiches made in a muffin tin

Very Good (2 ratings)
Chicken Thighs, simply baked

I don't like 'covered up food' This is simple food, easy to make, delicious, great for left overs. Pure simple flavor. TASTE the REAL food you're eating!

Banana Milkshake

I hate bananas. It's a fact. HOWEVER, they're absolutely wonderful frozen, or in this nutrient packed, 3 ingredient milkshake!!!

Pasta with Tomatos and Grilled Corn

Yummy! I am writing a pretty mild version of this. Feel free to add MORE garlic, basil, etc, etc!

Empty Pantry Marinara Sauce in a hurry

I needed some marinara sauce for a recipe, but I didn't have any. I didn't even have tomato paste! I had no time and an empty pantry. This is what I threw together, and it actually is pretty tasty! :) Very low sodium! This makes a chunky sauce. If you want it thinner, use an immersion blender or regular blender to thin the texture (or just use tomato puree, of course - I didn't have any lol!)

Pasta shells with Summer Squash

With left over cooked pasta (small or medium shells), this comes together with practically no effort! I have this as 1 serving, and that is one BIIIIIGGGGGG serving. Could serve 2 if you are having something with it. I ate it before I could take a pic... oops, sorry! LOL!

Chile Rubbed Fish (Tilapia)

This is a Wonderful recipe that was inspired by a fish taco recipe in Eating Well magazine. This is probably awesome in a fish taco, but I didn't have everything I needed for that, so ate it as it is. One day I may try it in a taco, for now, I'm hooked on this!

Parmesan Zucchini

Yummy Snack!!! For under 120 calories and full of flavor! Worth the few minutes it takes to cook it :)

on a really weird note, this actually makes a great filling to a sandwich with some low-fat mayo. Sound weird, tastes good!

Apples with Creamy Orange Dip

This is a go to snack for me. 3 ingredients, it couldn't be easier or faster! Fruit plus calcium, a little protein, plus sweeeeeetness = YUM!

Angel-hair Pasta with spinach

very simple. I like that the natural flavors come through. I guess I like simple foods. :)

Warm Spinach Salad with Smoky Pecans and Sweet Potato Recipe

Holy COW this is good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spend the money for SMOKED paprika for this one. Really, do it :) If you are using already salted pecan 1/2s (like I did) definitely 1/2 the salt in that step.

From I typed it in as it is on the website:

In this recipe, a riff on a classic warm spinach salad, we swap hearty sweet potatoes for the bacon. Smoked paprika coats warm toasted pecans to add crunch to this colorful, satisfying salad.

Creamy Feta Dressing

This is my taste's take on another Sparker's EXCELLENT creamy dressing recipe. Great for salad and also as a dip (I found myself scarfing down a whole stalk of celery dipped into it)

Willow's things to try
Getting through all of the delicious sounding recipes is a daunting task indeed! I think I'm up to it though! I haven't made these dishes yet, I am saving them so I can! I will rate them as I try them and (hopefully) move them to the Recipes I Liked cookbook. Thanks for all of the inspiration!
