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.) Continue reading
Buffalo Chicken Salad
This is so super easy and I’m OBSESSED with it. It started with a Buffalo Chicken Bowl recipe I found here. I didn’t love the tomatoes after it sat a couple of days, so I picked them out… and then I wasn’t sure how to eat it, so I added some mayo and made it creamy and ate it with pita chips.*
That made me think about actually setting out to make chicken salad with a hot sauce kick, and I decided to experiment with a mix of light mayo and Greek yogurt to give it a little more protein and keep the calories in check. Continue reading
Super Easy Baked Chicken
Chicken is definitely a staple of my life… a great, simple source of protein. It’s pretty easy to get bored with plain chicken, though, so I tend to look at it more as an ingredient than an actual food (if that makes any sense at all). I’ve found it easiest to cook a bunch of it, cube it, and keep it to mix in salads, supplement frozen meals and use for chicken salad. I’ve tried a bunch of different ways to cook it and feel like I’ve finally found a way that’s easy enough that I’ll actually do it and also DELICIOUS (I usually end up eating a whole serving while I’m cutting it up ;)).

Slow Cooker Pineapple Chicken
I was looking for a new chicken recipe and found this one in a blog post about slow cooker recipes.
We tried it at Cooking Club and it was VERY tasty… but a little bit of a stretch to get it done during the 6 hours we get together to cook. And if I’m going to get a slow cooker recipe ready ahead of time, it has to be SUPER easy. Back to the drawing board. Continue reading
Make Ahead Baked Eggs
I am NOT a morning person. I’m always running late, I’m usually cranky… and I’m hungry. I had a Costco order coming from Instacart so, on a whim, I added 3 dozen eggs (it *was* Costco ;)) and decided to figure out something to do with them for breakfast for the week.
I love a fritatta… and they’re relatively easy… but I was feeling too lazy even for that. Then i remembered a recipe I’d pinned from thekitchn.com for an oven omelet and decided to start there and just make it as easy as possible. Continue reading
