With the cold winter upon us, my family has fallen into some bad carb-heavy meals, so this Chicken Buddha bowl with Avocado Dressing at Ilona’s Passion looks very refreshing to me! The quinoa makes it hearty and filling, my kids will eat the chicken willingly, and they can snack on those veggies in their own DIY bowl.
The way Jessy doctors up these Slow Cooker Sausage and Peppers at The Life Jolie as cheesy sub sandwiches is pretty tempting. Then again, for those who are trying to eat low-carb, you could also just serve the sausage and peppers without the bread.
This Thai Chicken Salad at Platings and Pairings is one of my favorite types of recipes. I can cook these individual ingredients and let each person prepare their own meal the way they like it, or I can take the seasoning for the chicken and use it on tofu, tempeh or even chickpeas for my vegan husband.
We’ve rounded up our favorite romantic recipes for Valentine’s Day at home, including this Thyme and Ricotta Ravioli at Pina Bresciani. I think it’s a perfect romantic entree or side dish to a great steak or piece of fish for Valentine’s Day this week.
When I think back to my travels to Asia two years ago, it’s food like this that stands out in my memory. I’d love to share that with my kids, who would eat up these Japanese Gyudon Beef Bowls at Apple of My Eye, although I might leave off the egg for them. Plus, any chance to eat with chopsticks is more fun.
For a Valentine’s Dessert for the whole family that couldn’t be easier, try these semi-homemade Strawberry Parfaits at Mr. Farmer’s Daughter. The recipe is all store-bought ingredients with a relatively healthy twist, so you can let your kids indulge without worrying that it will ruin their bedtime.
