Grilled Chicken Fusilli Marinara

Boyfriend- 🙂Me-🙂 Technically this is Broiled Chicken Fusilli Marinara. It was raining and the pollen has been killer so I wanted to prevent the grill master from dealing with pollen. So I broiled the chicken instead and it was nice and juicy. I was hesitant about the cauliflower fitting into this dish, but it was…

Cajun Beans and Couscous

🙂. Yum! This is a night and light lunch (or dinner) that is super easy to make and take to work. I added the rest of the Steam-Fried Zucchini Halves for some extra veggies and to use the leftovers. I also added a nice heap of spicy salsa for extra flavor. I deviated from the…

Caramelized Apple Cinnamon Crepes

😕 I think I’m just not a buckwheat fan. I will finish this batch of crepes though. The apples only took about 30 minutes to cook yesterday and are easy to store and reheat for the crepe recipe. I think the apples along with the small amount of Greek yogurt on top of the crepes…

Steam-Fried Zucchini Halves

Boyfriend- 😕Me- 😕 Frankly, I don’t have much to write in this blog post about this vegetable side dish. Instead of calling it “Steam-Fried” it should just be sautéed since you are using olive oil for this dish and not adding water. Frankly this is just under seasoned sautéed zucchini. Not for us, although I’m…

Almond Chicken

Boyfriend- 🙂Me- 😕 Boyfriend liked it. So much so that he had the rest for lunch today. Me? Eh. I think I would have liked it better by using pecans instead of almonds for the crust. I also think that I should have added dried basil to the crust seasoning since I didn’t have dried…

Classic Gazpacho

Me- ☹️ Hard pass. I knew I wasn’t going to like this but I wanted to try if I’ve just had bad gazpachos in the past. I think the conclusion is that I just don’t like gazpacho. Cold veggies floating in cold tomato soup is not the dish for me. The only good thing is…

French Lentils with Carrots and Parsley

Boyfriend- 😕Me- 😕 Although I was out of parsley so technically this recipe is French Lentils with Carrots. I love lentils, but I don’t really crave them. I feel like I would have enjoyed this dish more in the fall as a filling side dish. This would be so good with Herb Roasted Chicken and…
