Winter Cooking Slump.

Alright friends, I’m in a winter-cooking slump and I’m calling out for help. I’ve been through my Pinterest boards, my favorite cookbooks, and even that pile of torn-out recipes I keep in a binder in my kitchen. Sure, I’ve found some ideas for dinner parties or a leisurely Sunday afternoon of slow-roasting something decadent — but I’m looking for weeknight recipes that I can make in 30-40 minutes after work (oh and somewhat healthy would be great too, since I’ve been eating like I’m already storing up for calories for next winter). So — can you help me? Would love your ideas! Leave them in the comments!

    I feel ya… I am constantly looking for new and semi healthy recipes. I have a new Pinterest board that I re-Pin things that I actually made and liked: https://www.pinterest.com/laviejaime/pinned-it-made-it-loved-it/

    Try the quinoa chix parm (SO EASY) and sausage, potato, spinach soup (BF approved!)

    Sweet potato hash with chicken sausage and a fried egg is my go-to! Fairly easy, and you can spice it up (see what I did there?)!

    I’ve been feeling the exact same, so I can empathize! Lately I’ve been roasting a whole chicken (<– see recipe below) and then pull off the leftover chicken to re-purpose for dinner the next night: make into tacos, throw in a pot for enchilada soup, healthy sweet potato nachos, bbq sandiwches, buffalo chicken salads, or with wheat spaghetti & pesto.

    I hope that helps!!

    So I don’t know HOW overall healthy this one is, but it definitely has healthy components 😉 Southwestern Stuffed Spaghetti Squash: http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/southwestern-stuffed-spaghetti-squash/
