Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas

I need to make enchiladas more often because they sure are delicious. Making enchiladas is kind of a task because it usually requires a lot of ingredients, steps and time. I won’t lie, that is the case with these enchiladas, but it’s SO worth the effort. If you see feta cheese in the photos or recipe and think “in a Mexican dish?” then you’re not alone. My husband and I thought the same, but I’m telling you, try it. It adds a touch of tang and if you think about it, is actually pretty similar to some Mexican cheeses like …

Crustless Zucchini Pie

For the record, my husband says that this is not a pie because it doesn’t have a crust.  Pies must have a crust. This is sort of like a quiche.  However, quiches are mostly made of eggs and this “pie” only has two eggs in it.  I’ve made a variety of quiches and this one is lighter than any others. Call this whatever you like.  I’ve been calling it “the zucchini thing.” It’s a technical term.  Hey, whatever works, right?  My husband knows what I’m talking about and he doesn’t get to complain about me calling it a pie. I’ve …

Caprese Chicken and Quinoa

How is it July already?! It seems like just yesterday I was watching Christmas movies. Oh wait, that’s because I was. The Hallmark channel is celebrating Christmas in July with round-the-clock Christmas movies. I’m in heaven! I even told my husband that I wanted to bring up our 2 foot tall pre-lit Christmas tree for the month. I got vetoed. All this Christmas talk has me craving cookies now (although in fairness, when am I not craving cookies?). Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I don’t have a cookie recipe for you today if that …

Greek Roasted Chicken

Winner, winner, chicken dinner. (Sorry, I had to go there.) My Greek roasted chicken and potatoes dish is one of the recipes from my blog that I make the most. It’s easy to make, it comes out delicious every time, and it’s a great make-ahead meal to make for guests. I’ve taken the original tried and true recipe and made two minor changes to it. While the original recipe is still perfection (and I still make it that way when my husband and I entertain for a big crowd), but I wanted to make it into a smaller portion. Plus, …

Broccoli and Chickpea Sandwiches

This is not your usual sandwich. Think of a salad with a Greek flair piled into a pita or Naan bread and you fold it up and carefully try to eat it without wearing it. Good luck (and sorry). This “sandwich” filling is SO good and it’s really the highlight of the recipe. The combination of chickpeas, broccoli, feta cheese, and olives in a lemon dressing is really out of this world delicious. In fact, I had some leftovers (but no Naan) so I decided to throw tortellini into the mix and it was equally tasty. Look at that, two …
