I love 1-pot meals. When its a delicious dish with minimal clean-up, its a big win! Weeknight meals can be a challenge when you want to come up with something different than the norm. This honey garlic salmon with quinoa is different than some of the dishes I usually make, and it came out really delicious! So its definitely going to stay in the rotation.

The salmon is cut into small chunks, so it cooks very quickly. Then it goes out of the pot and the quinoa and veggies are cooked. So start to finish this meal is done in 30 minutes!

This dish is mild enough to please picky eaters, and my youngest who likes salmon, really gobbled this up! If you’re not a fan of salmon, I’d recommend using a firm white fish such as cod or halibut. Fresh tuna would also work well in this recipe.

This hasn’t happened in quite some time, but I seem to be on a roll lately with recipe development! The new year has me inspired to create some new recipes. When I was making this one, I had no idea how it was going to turn out. Typically most recipes might need a couple tweaks. But this one came out great on the initial try. First of all, the SAUCE in this stir fry is AMAZING! I’m actually thinking of making a batch of the sauce to pour it on everything. Ok…..well maybe not everything. But almost everything.

Easy, delicious and quick. That’s the name of the game when it comes to dinner! Its always a goal with my recipes to be less than 10 ingredients, easy to prepare, and limited mess. Plus, of course it has to taste delicious! This recipe for Maple Dijon Sheet Pan Chicken and Vegetables is all of those things!

I love the idea of 1-pot or 1-pan dinners as it keeps the mess very limited. The trick with dinners like this is chopping up the veggies quite small as you want the cooking time to be consistent. Roasted chicken breast should never take longer than 30-35 minutes, so if you’re using a sturdy vegetable like yams, potatoes or sweet potatoes, you need to cut them small so they’re done in around that time.

Hi all! Hope your 2018 is getting off to a great start! I’m sure many of you are getting in the swing with healthier meals after the holidays (me included). I’ve also gotten a few workouts in this year, so I’m definitely feeling better. One thing is certain though, even if its healthy, it still has to taste good. Plus, it has to be easy to prepare, and not a lot of ingredients. Tough task? I think not! Especially when it includes this sauce!

Wow. Really. Its good.

This easy vegan alfredo sauce came out so great! Excited to share the recipe with you. This year, I’m going to be trying to make more vegetarian and vegan recipes. While I’m not going to make the jump to full-on vegetarian or vegan, I will definitely enjoy more meals without meat and dairy. I can’t eat a lot of dairy products to begin with as my tummy doesn’t agree with too much of it, so I am drawn to vegan food as I know it’s guaranteed dairy-free.

Moroccan Stew

  I cannot get enough of stews this winter. Probably because its rained 27 out of 30 days in Vancouver. But I’m not going to think about that, and instead, think about how delicious this Moroccan stew is. It has all the warming spices, and sweetness from dried apricot. I’ve been experimenting with more vegetarian […]
