Avocado’s have been a little pricey here recently. I have a serious love for avocados, so when I saw them on sale last week, I couldn’t resist! I am usually good about not buying things I don’t have a plan for (because if I don’t have a plan, they don’t get used). Therefore, I set out to make a plan for the avo’s I had brought home. I had some leftover tortillas, so tacos were the obvious choice. When I googled avocado tacos, I couldn’t believe that I had never heard of this deliciousness! Fried avocado black bean tacos are my favorite new way to enjoy my beloved avocado! Continue reading →
As a pescatarian, I eat lots and lots of vegetarian meals, with a few fish or seafood meals thrown in for good measure. I am weird and LOVE eating fish. At home, we eat it about once a week. This being said, can you believe that I haven’t posted a fish recipe since I posted Smoked Trout Fish Cakes in October??? Crazy, I know. Well I’ve got a few more coming your way. I have been working on fish tacos recently, and this chipotle baked fish tacos with pico slaw is definitely a fun ad healthy way to enjoy some fish! Continue reading →
The first time I had heard about fried chickpeas, I was reading over at Naturally Ella (an amazing vegetarian blog). I knew immediately that I would have to try the technique. A quick pan fry has the ability to add texture and depth of flavor that you wouldn’t normally find in a chickpea. These fried chickpea gyro bowls with tzatziki sauce are exploding with flavor, and come together quickly for an easy weeknight meal! Continue reading →
Yes, that is right. We are making slaw with cheese and nuts today. This red cabbage feta and candied almond slaw is almost more like a salad. It has a sharp and savory vinaigrette like a salad, but the red cabbage really eats more like a slaw. Whether you think it should be called a slaw or a salad is up to you. Once you try this recipe, you will be hooked! Continue reading →
For a while, my family and I were hooked on my fish tacos recipe. We would eat them every week. I always had red cabbage in the fridge to top them with zesty slaw. We are not tired of the fish tacos yet, but it is good to switch things up sometimes. These black bean tacos with garlic red cabbage slaw are a regular in our rotation now. They are perfect for summer because they don’t take much time to make, which leaves more time for fun! Continue reading →
It’s Monday morning and it’s raining. Days like this really make you appreciate the weekend! The weather this weekend was beautiful and I managed to get outside to do some yard work. It has been a long spring for us in Southern Illinois, and I have been trying to soak up as much as possible before the summer heat sets in. These fish tacos with pineapple salsa are a great refreshing dinner after spending the day in the sun! Continue reading →
If you haven’t noticed yet, I post a lot of fish recipes using trout. That’s right, you guessed it. I am a trout fisherman… fisherwoman. That’s better. I always seem to have plenty of trout in my freezer, and sometimes I need to find creative ways to use it up so that I can plan more fishing trips!
This recipe has become a favorite that we eat almost every weekend. Its fast, fresh, and delicious! Welcome, my friends, to the joy of a tasty peanut noodle salad with not only one, but two cabbages!
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable (along with others like broccoli and kale) and is full of nutrients that are beneficial to health. I love that cabbage lasts a while in the refrigerator and is easy to toss into just about any salad.
