Recipe #95: Honey Mustard & Herb Roasted Chicken

The cookbook says this chicken is finger lickin’ good and I think I agree. All the honey, lots of dijon mustard and herbs (I used dried) in the marinade gave the chicken such a nice flavour. I also really liked the addition of lemon in the marinade and the slices that cooked along with the…

Recipe #92: Quinoa & Sweet Potato Skillet Meal

The meat was not missed in this meal. This was a delicious vegetarian (well actually, vegan since I did not garnish with cheese) dinner that was so hearty and it was super protein packed from the beans and quinoa. It was also really easy to put together, aside from a little bit of chopping, and…

Recipe #91: Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Mmm muffins. They’re one of the easiest desserts and there are so many different varieties you can make. I’m not a huge fan of super chocolatey desserts but these muffins are honestly amazing. They are actually pretty healthy too, which makes them relatively guilt free, so you can eat multiple without feeling bad about it….

Recipe #89: Greek Lentil Salad

I really love greek salad. I love all the veggies and feta cheese and the dressing with lots of garlic and oregano. It’s just so good. So, it makes sense that I enjoyed this salad too. This salad had all the things I love about traditional greek salad but with the addition of lentils which…

Recipe #88: Build Your Own Bowl (Smoothie Bowl)

Smoothie bowls are a combination of regular smoothies and yogurt parfaits. They’re a great way to incorporate lots of fruit and healthy toppings into your breakfast. My bowl had a base of strawberry and blueberry smoothie which had a really nice colour. I used sweetened vanilla yogurt so I did not add any honey or…

Recipe #84: Roasted Cauliflower

I’m a huge fan of roasted vegetables. Whenever I need a side dish for dinner, I just see what I have, chop it up, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake. It’s the easiest thing ever. Cauliflower is one of my faves too. This recipe was super simple and only had a few…

Recipe #83: Strawberry & Watermelon Salad

I have not made a salad from this cookbook that I have not enjoyed. Seriously, every salad has been delicious and I am so impressed. There is always so much colour and freshness, and it really makes it easy to eat healthy. This strawberry and watermelon salad was so good. I loved the sweetness of…

Recipe #82: Maple Curry Chicken

I knew this chicken recipe was going to be a good one because that marinade was so tasty. There was such a nice balance of sweet and spicy with the curry powder, and itΒ  so good. Plus, the actual marinade took about 5 minutes to make, so nothing is easier than that. I just let…

Recipe #73: Beef & Broccoli Stirfry

Beef and broccoli is such an easy and classic chinese food dish so I was excited to make it. It’s super simple and delicious. It took no time to prep and only about 15 minutes to cook. It was a nice weeknight dinner, served over steamed rice. The recipe called for nice flavourful ingredients like…

Recipe #69: Fabulous Fish Tacos

Yes, they were fabulous. I love a good fish taco and these tacos hit the spot. The fish was yum. The mango salsa was yum. The lime mayo was yum. Each component was delicious but then all together in a (whole wheat) tortilla, everything was better. Let’s break it down though. The fish – I…
