Parmesan Chicken Tenders

Came home late after an afternoon hike in Mission Trails, San Diego, CA. The hubby and I are preparing for the coolest honeymoon ever – backpacking through Yosemite for 6 days!

We walked in tired, famished, and in no mood to cook. I threw these Chicken Tenders together in under 15 minutes from start to mouth. Feel free to mix it up on your busy nights – use any type of wheat or nut flour, any hard cheese you have on hand, and any crunchy coating in place of breadcrumbs (e.g., panko, finely chopped almonds, etc).

Kale Caesar Salad

It may be trendy, it may be cool….but I don’t think I will ever outgrow kale. Call this a trendy spin on the classic Caesar Salad or call it anti-oxidizing. I simply call it a delicious salad you can throw together in 15 minutes. 

Cobb Salad

I hate to admit this. But every so often, I get tired of eating boring, healthy salads. Sometimes, I just want to get down and dirty with a good old fashioned Cobb Salad.

Aztec Kale Salad

Served with a cup of Creamy Tortilla Soup, this salad makes the perfect Mexican-inspired dinner. To make a complete meal of the salad alone, toss in some chicken breast, cumin-marinated tofu, or carne asada.

Herbed Sweet Potato Salad

Home for the week in Chicago, I was elected to make a simple and healthy meal for my family. But per my usual culinary tendencies, it wasn’t enough for me to make chicken and steamed vegetables. How boring!
