Sinless Spaghetti Squash and “Creamy” Marinara Sauce

            CIMG1219

Hi guys! I have a new recipe for you today! This past year I found myself sticking to some of my old favorites like broiled pork chops, blackened tilapia, roasted veggies, turkey burgers, and crock pot pulled chicken and pork. I did find some new favorites though and this recipe is one of them!

Israeli Couscous and Grape Tomato Salad

I bought a basil plant a few weeks ago when I made my Summer Vegetable Pie, and later I realized that I needed to use all my fresh basil on some new recipes. I saw this original recipe in my June issue of Bon Appetit. With a few tweaks here and there I had a lighter couscous salad that screamed summer. It’s super easy to boot!

Instant Seduction Pork Chops

The name says it all, Instant Seduction Pork Chops y’all! Just kidding, these are some fantastic chops though! I came across this recipe in my “100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know” cookbook which is full of recipes with fun names like this one. Chris and I are big fans of pork, it’s easy to prepare and not terribly expensive, so I thought this would be a great dinner to make before he took the bar two weekends ago. He was asking me to make them again before we had even finished the dishes! A winner in my book which will be made again!

Mussels in a Tomato Wine Broth

A few weeks ago I was in a food rut and needed something to pull me out of my funk. Enter this mussel recipe! I had never attempted to make mussels at home, but knew they were relatively cheap and easy so I thought I would give it a shot! I was tempted to do a classic butter and white wine sauce, but I saw this recipe on Cooking Light and thought it sounded great, and it isn’t as bad for the waist line! Chris and I were not let down!

Summer Vegetable Pie

One of the reasons I love summer is because all my favorite vegetables are in season. I love to roast squash and zucchini year round, but sometimes you just need to switch things up! I was inspired by a gratin on Kath’s blog, but didn’t want to add a ton of cheese to my vegetable side. Luckily, my experiment worked! This is definitely my new favorite way to enjoy summer veggies!

Chicken Fajitas

Chicken fajitas are delicious and easy to make. I love making fajitas for dinner because they’re filling and chock full of veggies. However, I’m usually content to just dice up the chicken and cook it in the skillet right along with the vegetables and a packet of taco seasoning. There is nothing wrong with that method, but these chicken fajitas kick my taco packet fajitas in the behind.
