Curry Chicken & Vegetables


Recipe found on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen
My Rating: 5/5

My Review: Oh man, was this tasty!! I usually find chicken breasts to be a bit bland and dry but, not cooked liked this!! The curry sauce that coated the meat was drool-worthy and the little veggie mix on the side, topped with the curry, too… OOH YESSS. For our side: brown rice.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 onion, sliced to 1/2″ rings
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 medium cauliflower, cut into florets (about 2 cups)
  • 4 medium carrots, diced to 1/2″
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil, divided (we used extra virgin olive oil)
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 2 lbs.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • lemon wedges, for garnish

Chili Mac w/ Sneaky Mushrooms


Recipe found on Go Dairy Free
My Rating: 4/5

My Review: The recipe tells us to chop the mushrooms up – in case your kid or someone else you’re cooking for hates mushrooms but, boyfriend and I love them so we kept them whole. I loved the addition of them and I also liked the beans. It was a good dish, it just didn’t WOW me.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • ½ pound mushrooms
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 package dairy-free chili seasoning
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 15.5-ounce can kidney beans, rinsed
  • 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1 cup medium salsa
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • Chopped cilantro (for serving)

BBQ Beef Sandwiches


Recipe found on Rachel Ray Mag
My Rating: 4.5/5

My Review: If you’ve got a nice BBQ sauce, you’ve got a nice sandwich – that was most of the flavor. The meat was tender and easy to bite through, it was yum yum yummy. The coleslaw on the top was refreshing and crisp, too. ❤ For our side: Alexia’s Yukon Select Garlic Fries with parsley and sea salt.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 3 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 16 ounce bag coleslaw mix
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1 3/4 pound boneless sirloin steak, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted (we used Brioche buns)

    1. Hi babe, I am so sorry! I found quite a few of your comments in my spam box. 😦 I should have looked in there earlier!

      Don’t be amazed by me– all credit goes to my handsome! He cooks for us on almost all of his days off of work & sometimes on days he does work too. ❤ Both the chicken & chili were delish! Hope you enjoy!
