I don’t know about you, but I love anything resembling a casserole. If there is something warm, baked and savory…i’m in! I am starting to love quinoa. It is so easy to cook, can be flavored with anything…and to top it off its really healthy! So I wanted to find a way to mix my love of quinoa and casseroles together in one amazing dish. and the result…..Spinach Quinoa Pie!
I wanted to make a mac’n cheese dish that had all the satisfying creaminess without all the “bad stuff” of the traditional version. I made it with spaghetti squash instead of pasta and added Greek yogurt instead of butter. The result…an amazingly delicious dish that was exactly what i wanted on this dreary day.
By the time I got to my friends house I was craving some warm delicious comfort food. I wanted something hearty, filling, and it definitely had to have cheese. After some deliberation I decided to make these spinach and goat cheese quinoa cakes. They were easy, fast, and exactly what I needed.
Taco Tuesday! One of my favorite days of the week. I’m a big taco lover and have been looking at ways to “clean” up my taco habit. Have you ever looked at the ingredients on the “taco” seasoning you buy at the store. Wow. I can’t pronounce half of them.
Who said turkey burgers had to be dry! Honestly, I used to be one of those people, but this recipe had made me a convert. they are so moist and delicious, I have already made them twice this week!

This recipe is sure to be a hit with even the most devout burger lover in your family.
We love meatloaf at our house. It is such a great family dinner. Real comfort food. This turkey meatloaf recipe is something i have been making for years.

Isn’t nature funny. I mean…a squash that cooks like spaghetti?!?! It’s almost like nature knew that one day we would need a great way to replace all that unhealthy pasta we have been eating. Okay…Okay…I do realize this is not the case, nature didn’t make the squash just so that we would stop eating white flour pasta…but wouldn’t it be cool if it did? Sorry these are just the silly things I think about sometimes.
This lemony chicken has a hint of pepper and is the perfect Sunday meal. Put it in the slow cooker around 10:00 AM and it’ll be hot and ready for dinner.

I am a firm believer that a person can never have too many chicken recipes. Chicken is great. It is a delicious, lean, and versatile, healthy protein. Here is one of my new favorite chicken recipes. It has a great balance of the sweet and savory that your family is sure to love.
I have been craving lettuce wraps, specifically the popular appetizer from a big chain restaurant. Alas, we don’t have many chain restaurants around our area which makes going to one a treat. I know its kind of the reverse of normal people. However, it does come in handy when implementing a “clean” diet. Anyhow, I decided to make up my own lettuce wrap recipe. My daughter’s first word when she took a bite was “yummy!”
