Chicken is a go to protein in my house. It is an inexpensive and versatile meat with endless ways to prepare it. I tend to lean to Asian flavors, which are a favorite in our house like with my Soy marinated chicken, but these drumsticks are simply a crowd pleaser and make for a effortless meal. This recipe is ridiculously easy and makes your chicken amazingly juicy and flavorful. My garlic and herb chicken roasted drumsticks take less than 10 mins of prep time and about 40 mins to cook.
I love me some steak! My friend Terry jokingly says that I live in the house of carnivores. Grilling a steak to perfection is not the easiest skill to master, but I am going to give you the tips to turn your home into your own personal steakhouse. For this post I chose a less known cut of meat, 100% Grass Fed Edge of Eye Steak, from Fresh Direct.
The thing about Brussels sprouts is that a lot of people say they don't like them, but if they had them prepared like this, they would probably change their mind. Of course we all know that bacon makes everything better (wonder if there is a t-shirt for that), so this recipe really can't be beat. If you don't eat pork, you can always add garlic instead to give these veggies some extra flavor.
One thing I have learned from my husband is the best salmon comes from Alaska. He has told me numerous stories about his days as a commercial salmon fisherman and his dip netting experiences back in Anchorage. Getting fresh Alaskan Salmon in the lower 48 does come at cost, but I think it is worth it. I found this beautiful piece of fish at Whole Foods and I was very excited to pair it with some fresh dill, lemon and capers.
A Mexican breakfast really hits the spot, there is something about salsa, cheese, and eggs that I cannot resist. As I mentioned in my Lazy Woman's Skillet recipe, it is also my husband's favorite. This recipe is a hearty and tasty way to combine my favorite ingredients into one meal.
Roasting chicken can be a simple yet elegant dinner. Marinating the meat the night before will keep the chicken flavorful and juicy while cooking. My effortless and delicious Soy Marinated Roast Chicken recipe will become one of your dinner favorites. Planning out your meals can be difficult when life is so hectic, but it will save you a lot time in the long run. Prepare your marinate the night before and you will have dinner ready in a snap.
I look forward to waking up on the weekends to make brunch, some weekends more than others. When I feel less motivated to whip something magnificent up, I generally make a breakfast skillet. Luckily for me, it is my husband's favorite breakfast (other than burritos). They are so simple to make and a good way to save random food in your fridge from spoiling. Here is what I came up with this morning, but you can substitute the vegetables, type of meat, etc.
