Don’t let the ingredient list fool you, this recipe is super easy, super healthy, and super filling. It can also easily be converted into a vegetarian recipe by swapping out the chicken for some extra firm or firm tofu. Make it vegan with a cheese substitute. When we make this recipe (as I try to

The hubby and I have taken a liking to a local stir fry place over the course of the past year, but eating out a lot can get expensive pretty quickly. I got a stove-friendly wok from Nana, so I decided that now was as good a time as any to break it out and

Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Eggplant is kind of a strange fruit. It’s mostly water, and other than providing a reasonable amount of dietary fiber (about 5 grams per cup of eggplant), it really doesn’t have much else to offer on its own. However, its blandness and lack of… everything makes it a great vehicle for sauces, breadings, and other

Pizza: The Basics

Pizza: The Basics
Posted in : dinner, easy, food, pizza, recipe, spicy, vegetables on by : Jeanette Rueb
Tags: , , , ,

Pizza is one of those foods that we order out so often, the art of making it at home is often overlooked. It’s not terribly difficult, it’s super customizable, and it is WAY cheaper than ordering delivery (and less greasy). Longtime readers might remember my Greek pizza recipe from… geez, three years ago… but that was

Chili? In summer?? Oh yeah, I went there. Even if you live somewhere hot, in my opinion, there’s never a wrong time of year for chili. This one even features a fresh summer vegetable — zucchini! The best thing about this recipe is that it’s another slow cooker feature, so you can set it and

Here’s something that’s a little more involved than the usual burger, here on Apartment Eats. The Fiancé and I had a couple of friends over, and we decided we wanted some Asian-inspired grill food, so we put our heads together, got a bit creative, and this was the end result. The burgers turned out to

I have been loving my new cast iron skillet! Now that I know how to clean it, I’ve been using it almost weekly, and the dinners that come out of it are out of this world. Personally, I’m a fan of chicken and fish, and now that I’ve ventured into the realm of cast iron

Fried Tilapia

This recipe makes slightly ironic use of another recipe of mine, Gourmet Vegan All-Purpose Seasoning. While tilapia obviously isn’t vegan, this seasoning makes for a great crust/rub on this otherwise bland fish. What’s even better is that this recipe works great in a cast iron skillet. Intimidated by your skillet? Don’t be! Just reference the guide

When I asked the fiancé what he wanted for dinner the other day, he said, “I don’t know, something with vegetables.” Now, I’ll never pass up veggies, but the fact that they were specially requested made it extra important. Since I had also planned on inviting some friends over for dinner that night, I decided

I like french fries, but I don’t like how heavy they feel in my stomach after I eat them. If you’re also a fan of potatoes as a side dish, you’ll be pleased to know that they can be just as delicious without all the grease and calories that come from deep frying! These wedges
