After Thanksgiving I always crave something light...something refreshing and simple. A few years ago I enjoyed a salad with craved turkey at a local restaurant in Utah that was so stinking good! It had roasted turkey, dried cranberries, sunflower seed, avocado, mozzarella cheese, and a pink poppyseed dressing. It was heaven. This is my version of that carved turkey salad - and I promise it will hit the spot after that heavy Thanksgiving meal! If you are gettin' a cravin' for this . . .
I've been really into meals in a bowl lately. It is so visually appealing to see all of the ingredients in my bowl ready to be tossed together. I also love having tasty fresh ingredients for a meal. Some of my favorite flavors are definitely greek flavors. I love the bite and zing of kalamata olives along with cool cucumber and smooth feta. So my obsession with bowl meals and my craving for mediterranean food inspired this healthy and easy meal. I marinated some chicken breasts and . . .
Fresh, bright, light...oh so yummy. That's how I would describe this fast dinner. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - if you aren't a seafood fan you need to try tilapia. It is so mild and so easy to prepare. You'll be converted! I started out this recipe with a shallot, some dills, some parsley, and some garlic. I seasoned my tilapia with salt and pepper and then coated it in flour. I cooked it in a skillet with a little olive oil and then removed it and let it rest on a . . .
I needed a side dish for some coconut chicken I was making and was totally stumped. I had some mango salsa sitting in the fridge from some fish tacos I'd made and BAM. It hit me. Don't you love it when the food gods smile down on you? Oh, I do. This is suuuuuuuch an easy meal to prep beforehand. Make your salsa and thai peanut dipping sauce and slice the veggies at some point in the week, or in the morning, whatevs, so all you have to do is roll the rolls and you're ready for . . .

I am ALWAYS rushed in the morning, so my go-to breakfast is always a shake. I've come up with some fun, tasty recipes over the years - and so I thought I'd share one of my staples today. With all of the processed foods these days I like to start off the day with something that is good for me, so I . . .
This. Is. Comfort food. Creamy rice, soft and hearty veggies, juicy chicken thighs, and salty onion strings. I've had this basic recipe for a while now, and every time I make it I am pleasantly surprised how delicious this simple meal with simple ingredients is. The leftovers are also just as good, and soul-warming on a cool, fall day. Leftover turkey would also substitute the chicken perfectly. I've written out instructions for conventional oven baking and pressure cooker cooking. Oven . . .
Are you guys convinced yet that pressure cookers are pretty amazing? Steph's previous post vegetarian chili and pot roast had me drooling.. if you didn't catch her pressure cooker roast and chili recipes you need to go check them out! Today I'm going to share a simple yet delicious black bean and rice recipe. Since I received my Power Pressure Cooker XL a few months ago I've been playing with different recipes and cooking methods. Many so good and quick! But the function I found myself utilizing . . .
Bowls are the new plates. It's true. Martha Stewart said it, so it's true. Ha ha! Really though! Have you noticed how popular meals served in bowls have become? I love serving food in the Fiesta bistro bowl. They are truly one of my favorite pieces of dinnerware. The depth is perfect, they are chip resistant, and they are beautiful to boot! Today I'm serving up a California roll...in a bowl. Who is a sushi lover out there? If I'm being honest - I'm pretty reserved when it comes . . .
All I can say about this salad is COME ON!!! This is so good that you won't even believe it!!! First lets talk about the dressing. A fresh basil vinaigrette that is BURSTING with freshness. I whipped this up in my blender and boy was it the finishing touch to this salad. It added a clean, herbal tang - that you just CAN'T get from a store bought dressing. I grilled my peaches for a little char and richness of flavor. It only took a few minutes and added just the depth of . . .
Dinner in 10 minutes?! Yes please! This tasty dish will be on your table before it is even set! I love shrimp, and I love summertime grilling. Add some juicy fresh peaches and you pretty much have heaven on a platter. My love of seafood started when I was a kid. I have really fond memories of camping with my family. My dad would get up early to go fishing and he would catch our dinner. We feasted on rainbow trout grilled over the camp fire during those trips. Since then I haven't been . . .
