Chicken Enchilada Bake

If you’re a fan of Mexican, then this chicken enchilada bake is going to become a staple in your house. It was rated a 10-plus in my house, and is totally going on the monthly dinner rotation. YAY! I’m so happy that I found something new to make my kids for dinner instead of the same old same old.  

Turkey Avocado Burgers with Mint Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

We’re a burger loving household. I swear we crave a burger about once a week! We love all types of burgers from turkey, chicken, to buffalo and veggie. Burgers make such an easy weeknight meal because all you have to do is form the patties, toss them on the grill, pair with them with a simple salad or roasted vegetable, and voila, dinner is served. Easy peasy weeknight cooking!

Beet ginger coconut soup

Beet, Ginger and Coconut Soup

This is a BIG year for Marin mama! I’m going to be finishing up Natural Chef school in March, and I therefore need to figure out my next career move before I finish school, YIKES! It’s super scary, but exciting at the same time, but a little more on the scary side, as I’m not sure what’s out there for little old me. I’m going to be spending the next few months researching, networking and getting a feel for what’s out there career-wise for me. I have some ideas brewing, but I’m not entirely sure yet what’s the best path, so I’m just going to keep following my heart, intuition and gut and see where it leads me. I will be sure to keep you all updated on where I’m heading.

Rosemary skillet chicken

Rosemary Skillet Chicken

This is the perfect weeknight chicken recipe folks. The marinade comes together in a flash and can be made ahead in the morning, so when you get home from work or just from a long busy day, all you have to do is roast up the chicken. Yippee! The chicken takes under 30 minutes to roast up to perfection, but tastes like a chicken that has been cooking for hours.

Bolognese simmering in a pot on the stove

Weeknight Bolognese -Dairy-Free

This is hands down my GO-TO bolognese! It’s seriously the perfect and tastiest bolognese for those busy weeknights, as it takes under 45 minutes start to finish, but the sauce tastes like a sauce that’s been cooking on your stove top all day, not for just 30 minutes.

Citrus marinaded chicken- three pieces on the table.

Citrus-Marinated Chicken

Ok, I have to say that this is one of my favorite chicken recipes ever, and Zoe and Eli both agree with me. We tried this the other night, gave each other the thumbs up, and said that this chicken was totally blog worthy and need to be posted sooner than later. The chicken is SO moist and full of flavor from the citrus marinade, and the skin gets all crispy and yummy from cooking under the broiler. This is seriously going to be one of my new go-to recipes for chicken, and the best part is that it can be made year round because it’s cooked under the broiler. Yippee! You could also grill it up, or even sear it in your cast iron skillet and then bake it off in the oven.  Hey, it’s a flexible chicken recipe!  I can see paring this chicken with some 5-minute roasted cauliflower or 5-minute roasted Brussels sprouts in the fall and kale mashed potatoes in the winter. This chicken is total comfort cooking anytime of year.
