Honey Chipotle BBQ Pulled Chicken with Creamy Broccoli Slaw

  Has there ever been anything as beautiful and wonderful as a sunny, 65°, spring day in Minnesota?  I don’t think so.  Meal prep was a real sacrifice today since it was a perfect day to be outside. Thankfully, I was done in time for us to take a quick walk around the neighborhood to… Continue reading Honey Chipotle BBQ Pulled Chicken with Creamy Broccoli Slaw

Teriyaki Glazed Flank Steak

There are only so many days in a week that I can eat chicken. If every meal I prep during the week contains the same protein, I end up choosing a JJ unwhich instead of my pre-made food. So, I keep it interesting by adding in at least one dish that is made with steak,… Continue reading Teriyaki Glazed Flank Steak

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Looking for the perfect game day snack? Let’s be honest, we love everything “buffalo” flavored but chicken wings can get pretty old, pretty fast and we all hate looking like “baby’s first birthday,” afterwards with buffalo sauce all over our hands and face. BTW, if you don’t get buffalo sauce all over your hands and… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Chicken Tortilla Soup

Thank goodness for my husband. Friday night, I was enjoying some Angry Orchard cider while planning out this weekend’s meal prep. I had a long list that was pretty exciting – but then he reminded me that we are only in town until Wednesday. Thank goodness he reminded me before I ordered the groceries or… Continue reading Chicken Tortilla Soup

{ Bonus Post } Steak + Broccoli

BONUS POST! It felt more exciting if I put it in all caps. Tomorrow I will be departing for an impromptu trip to Santa Fe to cover a property down there for the week. This means that my normal weekend routine is all going to packed into a day and a half instead of two.… Continue reading { Bonus Post } Steak + Broccoli

Sweet Potato Enchilada Chili

I am having a seriously hard time coping with how fast time is flying by. This week went by in a flash, and the weekend went even faster. Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 weeks away? I can’t either. Luckily, my husband is there constantly reminding me. I swear he starts to get… Continue reading Sweet Potato Enchilada Chili

Chicken Sausage Gumbo

I’m baaaack! Have you guys missed me? I have missed you! But the good news is – I have been BUSY. Busy cooking and creating new recipes for you! I did this week’s meal prep a little bit differently, spreading the cooking out over a couple of days instead of doing it all on Sunday.… Continue reading Chicken Sausage Gumbo

Spicy Lime Chicken

You know what’s absurd? Waking up at 6:15am for work. I used to think I would like to be the type of person that was able to wake up, go for a jog, make breakfast, eat breakfast, check e-mails, take a shower, go run an errand, then go to work. I hear those people are… Continue reading Spicy Lime Chicken

Main Event Meal Prep + Prosciutto Pizza!

This week’s meal prep was really about versatile meals – I chose three different proteins and three different sides, two salads, and two “main event” dishes. This way, we have mix and match type meals to last a few days, which will keep the meals from getting boring! Five hours in the kitchen yielded some… Continue reading Main Event Meal Prep + Prosciutto Pizza!

Steak and Veggie Stir Fry

It has happened. I am at that point. I need to take a break… from chicken breasts. It only took about 6 months, but I am finally sick of chicken breasts! I have worked really hard to get to a point where I can mix ingredients together and make something delicious, without following someone else’s… Continue reading Steak and Veggie Stir Fry
