Did anyone else grow up eating those boxed jambalaya mixes? The box mixes and smoked sausage have always been fairly affordable, so we ate it pretty often in my family growing up. Luckily, with this low carb turkey sausage jambalaya, I can enjoy a dish from my childhood without having so much carbohydrate and fat from the original stuff.
Chicken salad is so versatile and such a classic choice for a meal or small snack. Enjoy this traditional chicken salad recipe or make it your own using different non starchy veggies, herbs and spices!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get burnt out on just scrambling my eggs in the mornings. I also don’t always give myself enough time to make breakfast each morning! Preparing these Mediterranean Egg Muffins in advance will save you time in the mornings and provide you with some yummy taste variety. Remember that when you plan ahead, you set yourself up for success. Having a pre-made breakfast will start your day off wonderfully!
While this fajita steak bowl looks like it has a ton of ingredients, it is one of the easier and faster meals I make. In fact, I got home from work yesterday to my mister doing the dishes (yep, he does dishes!). During the 20 minutes it took him to finish cleaning, I cooked our entire supper. Awesome!
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Actually, that’s a lie…I love all of my meals equally. But this meal made breakfast just a little bit better! 🙂
Sometimes a plain old egg just won’t cut it. I eat hard boiled eggs for breakfast at least once a week, if not more. So I was thinking of a way to shake up the egg, thus the Turkey Bacon Hard Boiled Egg was born. Enjoy this nice twist on the deviled egg!
Let’s talk breakfast! It really IS the most important meal of the day. Skipping breakfast can cause you to be too hungry by lunch time, which can lead to overeating at lunch, and it can have negative metabolic consequences. We want our bodies to know that we’re giving it proper fuel through the day so that it can run as efficiently as possible! These poached egg bites are packed with protein to keep you full until lunch and preparing them ahead of time will save you time in the mornings so you don’t have to bother with anything other than heating these up.
Any meal that is done in 20 minutes and uses only one skillet is a winner in my book! The way I cooked this chicken is a little backwards of my usual technique, but I think the flavor is much better this new way. You be the judge!
I hope you enjoy having only one skillet to wash after dinner! ~Lauren A
One of my favorite shows on television is called Good Eats on the Food Network. This show not only talks about how to make a dish, but the history and culture that has inspired that food. They even have a food anthropologist!!! How cool of a job is that?!
Anyway, I’m getting off topic. The point to my ramblings is a show they did on the history of stir fry (traditionally a Cantonese dish). I’m sure it was a happy day in the good old U.S. of A. when stir fry was introduced. The great thing about the stir fry is you can’t really mess it up…it’s protein and vegetables with some sauce in a wok (or skillet), that’s it. This week’s version of my stir fry…the Honey Balsamic Chicken Stir Fry.
There you have it, folks. An easy and very flavorful dinner ready in less than 20 minutes! ~Lauren A.
If you have a brunch burger for dinner, is it still called a brunch burger? Not that it matters, because these are great any time of day. You should probably have them tonight. And maybe even tomorrow! 🙂
