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

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

Oven-Roasted Artichokes

Oven-Roasted Artichokes

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Artichokes are one of my favorite vegetables, and I wish I could eat them every day. They’re a fun finger food, less work than crab legs, and surprisingly filling. Another bit of good news is that, if you’ve never roasted artichokes at home, it’s not a terribly difficult recipe, though it does take a little

So, my right wrist is immobilized in a brace after a stupid hockey injury landed me with some torn cartilage. We’ve been eating out, eating frozen, and eating a lot of popcorn lately, as a result. It’s been maybe a week and a half to two weeks of that, and I’m about ready to kill

There’s nothing quite like coming home to the smell of a dinner that’s made itself while you were at work. It’s even better when you end up with a ton of leftovers (or enough to invite a friend over for dinner)! While the prep is admittedly a little more difficult when you’ve got one hand

Green bean casseroles don’t just have to be for the holidays! They’re a great, flavorful way to change up the dinner vegetables, and they’re super easy! Combining the crunch of green beans with the salty, savoriness of fried onions, and bringing it all together with a creamy base, while these may not be the healthiest

If you’re someone who keeps up with my blog, you’ll likely notice a trend or two with my dinner posts: 1) they make two heaping portions (so, realistically, probably¬†4, like this one), 2) they’re often salmon dishes. There it is. My secret is out. I like salmon. The good news is that you can make
