Mediterranean Grain Bowl with Turmeric Rice

Have you tried the new grain bowls at Panera? I did, and it was delightful. I tried the Mediterranean Bowl w/ Chicken.  It was so good that I feel like I could literally eat it for every. single. meal.   But, that would get quite expensive so I decided to make my own grain bowl!  Take… Continue reading Mediterranean Grain Bowl with Turmeric Rice

Tuna Salad with Shells

Its officially summer in Minnesota! I know this, because it is humid as sin outside and there’s mosquitoes everywhere! Oh, you thought the summer solstice is what signals the beginning of summer?

One-Pot-Rice & Burrito Bowls!

Let me tell you about my current obsession. My current obsession (besides buying iphone cases that I don’t need) is one-pot rice meals. Holy crap.

Mandarin Chicken Salad

I made a really simple chicken salad a few weeks ago with only like 5 ingredients – chicken, mayo, grapes, onions and celery (and salt/pepper – but those don’t count as ingredients!) and the husband really loved it.  I decided to make another chicken salad because its so quick and easy!  It’s a snap to… Continue reading Mandarin Chicken Salad
