So, I have been sticking to my goal of doing some new recipes. I like websites with recipes (as opposed to a cookbook) because they are easy to reference (on phone, ipad, etc). The Skinnytaste cookbooks came highly recommended, so we have been trying some of her recipes via her site.
Last week I made the Salisbury Steak Meatballs + Cauliflower Mash and it was amazing. Even my pickiest eater ate the meatballs. It didn’t feel overly healthy, but it is high in protein, low in sugar and calories. The cauliflower mash is also great; I will be making both of these again! I found there to be a lot of ingredients and prep for the meatballs so either allow yourself some time or do the chopping/prep in the afternoon and refrigerate. I think start to finish it was about 2 hours, but that was with a handful of interruptions!
I also made her one pot chicken Fajita Pasta. This was another crowd pleaser. It’s very hearty. I think it would be better on a Sunday early evening dinner and then you could have the leftovers later in the week (it makes a good amount, you will definitely have leftovers). You could sub the pasta with GF noodles, but we made it as is. I loved the flavors, and it was fairly easy to make. I like that there are a good amount of veggies thrown in too, and the kids didn’t really detect them!
here is how it looked when I made it…
My goal is to make 2 “new” recipes a week, mixed in with my typical boring meals 🙂 So far so good, and it’s been a nice achievable goal. I will keep you guys updated each week with my favorites!
