This recipe is a Dawnkey specialty. It is salty, savory goodness and was part of our New York “at home dining” repertoire. To be honest, this chicken and garlic pasta were actually the only two things we ever made at home.
Not only is this recipe super easy, it is also super healthy and super fast. Toss this bad-boy on the stove and serve it on top of a bed of arugula with Dawnkey’s Lemon Garlic Dressing, top with some flakey parmesan cheese (or grilled onions in this case) and call it a day. Seriously, it’s that easy. Continue reading →
One thing you should know about me is that I hate leftovers. I get sick of eating the same food over and over again. I need variety in my daily eating. Well, here’s a little secret…I made this meal two nights in a row and I could probably eat it again tonight. Coming from me, that says alot.
It is the combination of sweet summery corn, creamy avocado, fire roasted zucchini and red bell peppers in a salty, tangy cilantro lime dressing that really get’s me. How’s that for a description? And it is called succotash. That’s such a great word!
It isn’t very often that I come across a recipe so good that I literally have to brag about it. This however, is one worth bragging about. The minute I put my fork down, I texted my mom to tell her. I just had to tell someone.
As you might have picked up on this blog, Chefanie Wambach and I both like to create healthy meals. I have to be in a bikini in a few weeks which means my meals these days are full of salads and low calorie options. But that gets old, which is why I am always on the search to pack in the most flavor with the least amount of calories. This recipe does the trick. It is like your favorite bar snack, cleaned up a bit. It is spicy and creamy and has all the flavors you expect from chicken wings minus all the calories and fat. The whole salad will only cost you 250 calories. Success!
Now you might be saying, Soup…In Summer? While in might sound a bit odd, I agree, but in San Francisco, its completely normal. Summer in San Francisco often finds me wanting something warm and hearty. This recipe does just the trick.
I used chicken for the meatballs as it is healthier. They also don’t contain eggs for no reason other than once I made it and I had no eggs on hand. I think I actually like the meatballs better this way anyhow.
Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall…this one is a keeper.
I never believed it would happen to me…getting old that is. I honestly thought I would be young forever. I thought I would always be able to scarf down Taco Bell at midnight with no consequences. I thought I would forever be able to drink and not get a hangover. You know all those things we do when we are in our early 20s. Well, I am officially getting old! Yep, I said it. Next week I turn, gasp…29. And with those years of wisdom and experience under my belt the slower metabolism has also joined the ranks. But that’s ok. I can deal with it. :)
This is my go to recipe whenever I am feel a little puffy. You can either use ground chicken or chicken breast that you put through the food processor. It has that Asian tang that I love all wrapped up in lettuce. The best part is this whole meal is just about 250 calories.
