Paprika Chicken

Paprika chicken – an easy, tasty dish that practically bakes itself, simply throw everything in the pan and forget about it until it’s done. The chicken comes out incredibly juicy and flavorful, and the onions and olives add flavor and depth to this simple, rustic dish. Click for the recipe

egg and sausage muffins

I love the convenience of these breakfast egg muffins! They are easy to make, easy to eat (on the go if you must) and taste great warm or at room temperature. But these breakfast egg muffins are not just a convenient, on-the-go breakfast or snack – they are delicious too.

You can make your own homemade sausage for this recipe, using any ground meat you prefer. Today I used beef, but pork will obviously work as well, and I can imagine that ground chicken, turkey or lamb would also be great in this recipe. You can absolutely make these breakfast egg muffins in advance, and briefly reheat in the microwave, covered, when ready to enjoy.

sausage kabobs

I can’t think of a more appropriate spring/summer meal than sausage kabobs. It’s easy, colorful, pretty and takes advantage of the outdoor grill (although you can certainly prepare sausage kabobs under the broiler too).

All you need alongside the kabobs is a big tossed salad, and you’re set – it’s an easy-to-put-together meal that grownups and kids will love. Click for the recipe

Lo Mein Noodles

I love noodles. I consider anything made with noodles as comfort food. Just the act of slurping noodles is comforting. It puts you in the moment, enjoying your food, forgetting about everything else. I love how noodles are long and chewy, and how they seem to absorb any sauce you pour on them. Which brings me to the sauce. The sauce I used in this lo mein recipe is amazing. It’s simplicity itself: soy sauce, peanut butter, red pepper flakes, sesame oil. But it all comes together beautifully. So good.

If you use shirataki noodles in this lo mein recipe, the added bonus is that you’ll save yourself quite a few calories and carbs, and you’ll be stuffed. I had to check the nutrition info twice to make sure this comes at under 300 calories per serving, I was so full. And despite the bad rap that shirataki noodles get in terms of texture, I always say and I’ll say it again, that when prepared properly, the texture is fabulous. Plus you get the benefits of glucomannan, the fiber shirataki noodles are made of. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Chicken Tenders

We stay away from yucky processed chicken tenders, but we do love our homemade tenders! Normally I coat the chicken tenders with breadcrumbs prior to frying, but now that we try to limit our grain consumption, I decided to use almond flour instead. These gluten-free, low-carb chicken tenders turned out fabulous! They are just as crispy and tasty as my regular chicken tenders. The secret is in pounding them thin, and cooking in hot olive oil, to get the coating to brown and crisp up. Click for the recipe
