Swedish Meatball Pasta Bake

This is the kind of comfort food dish that you make on the weekend. Think Swedish meatballs meets a casserole and that’s what we’ve got going on here today. Nifty, right? I tend to prefer casseroles in the winter time. Maybe it’s because they tend to be heavier and ideal for cold nights. Which means if you’re counting calories then save this recipe for a day when calories don’t count (like the weekend or on vacation 😉 ). As a heads up, this recipe takes a bit of time to make, which is the real reason why I suggest making …

Moroccan Style Chickpea Soup

I’ve been eyeing the The Complete Mediterranean Cookbook for a while and my husband surprised me with it the other day.  I was so excited to try a recipe that I made something the very next day. Since it’s January in CT, it’s only fitting that I try a soup recipe first.  Ironically, it was in the 60’s this past weekend, which is an actual heat wave for this time of the year.  Nonetheless, we still enjoyed eating this soup. It’s not the prettiest bowl of food, but then again, I find that most soups don’t necessarily look as good …

Chicken Tacos

I feel like I should be sharing a recipe that’s appropriate for the Thanksgiving Day holiday, but I’m going to be a rebel and share a taco recipe instead. Have you ever made a chicken taco?  Usually I think of beef in tacos, but I did recently make cauliflower tacos so I guess I have more options than I realized.  These chicken tacos are so delicious and I’ve been missing out. I’m picky with my chicken so you know this is the real deal delicious stuff. Guys, this chicken is awesome. Something I definitely never thought I’d say. The spices …

Taco Soup

If you’re wondering what taco soup is, then you’re not alone because I had the same question. A few weeks ago my husband found this recipe online and he said “we should try this because it looks good.” It’s not often that he suggests a recipe to try and I’m always looking for new ones so I happily agreed. But I wondered what taco soup was. When I gathered the ingredients together I told my husband that it looked like we were making chili. It has all the makings for, wait for it, chili. Beef and beans, yup, sounds like …

Cauliflower Tacos

Do you like tacos? I’m guessing the answer is yes because who doesn’t. No, seriously, if you don’t like tacos then I… Mind blown. I think tacos are a favorite because they are delicious (duh). But really, it’s because you can make them however you like. Load them up with ingredients that you love. If you don’t like avocado, then skip it (shout out to my mom since I know that she isn’t a fan). These tacos are vegetarian and are all about the cauliflower. They may not look pretty but I had to take a picture of them before …
