Triple C Salad

Couscous, cucumber and chickpeas. Simple ingredients, delicious combination. I honestly love couscous based salads cause it’s so easy and quick and versatile. So this salad had that delicious c-base, plus a dressing of red wine vinegar, lime juice, oregano, chili flakes and parsley. I didn’t even need salt or pepper this time.  It was so…

Cheeseless Mac n Cheese

So when I thought of making this dish, I knew it would either turn out really well or be a total flop. Obviously I was hoping for the former. And lucky for me, it was a success! I’ve seen cheeseless mac n cheese recipes before but they all have nutritional yeast – I was looking…

Indian Turkey Curry

So this was a very impromptu meal. It started off as cooked turkey breastfeeding that was a little bit dry. Instead of eating it as is, I turned it into an indian curry.  I started off by sautéing onions, carrots and peppers in a big pot. Then I added a few cups of chicken stock…

Fish Filet Sandwich

If you ever had a fish filet sandwich, especially from places like mcdonalds, you know they can be good. But you sometimes feel gross after – cause they tend to be greasy and not very healthy.  I made a better version tonight for dinner. I have a simple breaded filet that I baked in the…

Sweet Potato Avocado Toast

This is one of the simplest things ever. It’s really not much more than what the title says. It was just toast + avocado + sweet potato + sriracha. That’s it. Such a good meal – breakfast or lunch. It’s creamy and crunchy and sweet and just delicious. I know it might seem like a…

Couscous with Bean Salad and Sweet Potatoes

I may have said this before, but I love meals that are all in one bowl and easy to eat. Tonight’s dinner was just that. I have 3 components here which are pretty easy to see cause I made sure they were all separated in my bowl. The bean salad has a few things… black…

Mixed Salad

I really didn’t know what to call this salad. I used the word mixed because it turned out to be a mix of many different things.  I got iceberg lettuce, cabbage, cucumber, bell pepper, dried cranberries, sliced olives, chickpeas and avocado. The only dressing I put was a little walnut oil, red wine vinegar, salt…

Bean Salad and Veggie Balls

I’ve had both of these things before, but this time it was a little different. Plus I added some avocado cause I’m a little obsessed. I really just love bean salad. This one had black beans, red bell pepper, fresh corn, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice, red wine vinegar, salt, sriracha and sugar. The veggie balls,…

Early Cinco de Mayo Dinner

Making mexican food the day before Cinco de mayo was a great way to show my rebellious side. I was originally going to make chili cheese fries but it ended up just being a bowl of chili with some fries on the side. Now that I think about it, it ended up being pretty much…

Chicken Stirfry

I made dinner with like 10 ingredients. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.  So from the title, you know I made a stirfry. It had leftover rotisserie chicken, peppers, yellow and green onion, ginger, soy sauce, sriracha, honey and sesame oil. I put all that on top of some egg noodles. And sesame…

Gourmet Pizza

I know I have a few pizza posts already, but this is my first one with homemade dough! I got the recipe from the back of the yeast packet and it turned out pretty well. As you can see, there are quite a few toppings here. I got cheese (obviously), pizza sauce, roasted veggies (zucchini,…

Quinoa Salad

I was in the mood for a light dinner, so I made a nice and healthy salad with quinoa. I cooked it up then added some frozen corn and edamame afterwards and thawed them with the residual heat. I let that cool down then added olives and cucumber. I made a little dressing of olive…
