Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Spaghetti Squash: Cheesy and delicious

This recipe is really hard to post because I seem to make it differently every time. It’s also practially impossible to know how big a spaghetti squash you’re going to get (I order online) so I’m always playing it by ear a little. The truth is you can modify this and play with it and chances are it will still turn out deliciously. I’m mostly posting it to have something to Pin to my Cooking Club Pinterest so people know what we’re actually making when we plan instead of pinning someone else’s recipe as a placeholder.

In other words… either be prepared to play with this and take your chances a little or skip it and try something else. 😉 Continue reading

Chicken Saag

This Saag is such a tasty way to get LOTS of spinach in… you can make it with chicken or even make your own Paneer cheese to mix in!

It’s really hard to get a good/appetizing picture of this dish… but it’s SO GOOD.

I love Saag Paneer. It’s what I always order when I get Indian food. But my roommate’s been on a Chicken Saag kick (I actually don’t know if it should be Chicken Saag or Saag Chicken?) and I finally realized that a) that should be pretty easy to make and b) it would be awesome for Cooking Club!

I googled and looked at a bunch of recipes and ultimately started with this one and went from there.

Chicken and Corn Chowder

Creamy chicken and corn chowder without any dairy

This recipe came about because of new toys in the kitchen and a trip to Utah.

When I was visiting my mom and stepdad in Utah this summer, we had dinner at the St. Regis in Deer Valley and while everything was delicious, the thing that stood out the most was a corn chowder. And it was extra amazing because it was dairy-free. No cream, but smooth as silk.

I was convinced I could make something similar (but with MOAR PROTEIN!) and wanted to figure out how to do it with my Instant Pot and my immersion blender. Continue reading

Picadillo

Salty goodness with ground turkey, diced peppers, chopped olives and tomato sauce.

If you like olives and crave salty foods in general, you’ll love this recipe!  It was inspired by this one on Skinnytaste.com. And by “inspired by” I mean I loved her recipe, but, I’m lazy… so I wanted to make it as easy as possible while keeping all the salty goodness.

I’m including directions on how to make this on the stovetop alone or by transferring it to a slow cooker.

Summer Krab Salad

Summer Krab Salad

Okay, I know before even typing this that many MANY of you will not be onboard with this. Seafood and Greek yogurt? EW. But, I gotta tell you… if you sometimes get a hankering for a creamy can’t-possibly-be-good-for-you mayo-based “salad” every once in a while, you should give this a try.  (I feel like this, coupled with my last post on Buffalo Chicken Salad, demonstrates some weird recent obsession with these kinds of dishes and I guess I just can’t even deny that.)
