Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Salad

Happy Friday! I’m excited to share today’s recipe with you because it’s not often that I find a chicken recipe that is worthy of blogging about.  I’m super picky about the texture and taste of chicken.  If I get a gristly bit or it tastes too chicken-y then I don’t want it.  I basically turn into a 5 year old and say that I never want chicken again.  In reality it’s just a few days or weeks before I give chicken another chance, but I’m always worried about what will skeeze me out next with chicken. Anyway, now that I’m …

Mediterranean Salad

This is my favorite salad (until I have a new favorite, of course 😉 ). I was craving Greek salad the other day.  Yes, craving a salad sounds weird, especially because I crave foods like bagels and pizza on a regular basis.  You better believe that I’m going to take advantage of this healthy craving while it lasts.  I love a traditional Greek salad made with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese, but I wanted to kick it up a notch. I still kept this salad lettuce free, but I added a bunch of other colorful veggies like Kalamata olives, and pepperoncini …

Tuna and Chickpea Salad

I’m ready for Spring. I usually eat lettuce and veggie salads for lunch, but I haven’t been in the mood for them lately.  Maybe my mind is still in Winter mode even if my soul is desperate for Spring.  Instead I’ve had hot meals like pork egg roll in a bowl, vegetarian chili with rice, and egg rice stir fry. All of the sudden, with a little more light in the evening I find myself switching back to cold salads because I’m craving Spring.  This salad is colorful and it reminds me that Spring is here even though it’s still cold here in CT and we …

Chickpeas, Egg and Quinoa Salad

Hi guys!  I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA lately. It’s been crazy busy at work lately and it’s been draining.  For those of you that are new here, I’m a full time attorney.  My blog is a part time hobby that I do on the weekends.  Lately, because of work stress, I found that I was putting blogging to the side in order recharge on the weekends.  I felt guilty leaving you hanging but sometimes we have to skip doing some things to stay sane. On to the recipe of the day.  I’ve been so good about making my lunches …

Pork Egg Roll in a Bowl

This may not be the prettiest meal but it sure is delicious. I’d rather be taking pictures of pretty doughnuts.  Heck, I’d rather be eating them too.   You know, because they’re doughnuts.  I’ve fallen off the wagon and I haven’t been eating healthy for the past month.  I blame my tooth, which started as a tooth ache and resulted in a root canal.  I’ve kept up with my workouts, but my pants feel more snug than usual.  I must get back on the healthy eating track and this meal is a great way to start. This meal is quick and …
