Lemon Ginger Shrimp Sheet Pan Supper

To get even cooking for this sheet pan lemon garlic shrimp meal, you’ll have to flip and stir the contents at least once during the roasting period and make sure that all the ingredients are in an even layer when you return them to the heat. You’ll also need to make sure to cut the potatoes into small size chunks, so they’ll cook at the same rate as the shrimp. Then, as soon as the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink and opaque, dinner is ready.

Strawberry Basil Salad

I’ve always been a salad girl, but it’s only been the past few years that I’ve started to enjoy fruit included with my veggie salads.

Now that I’ve realized how much I love the sweetness fruit can bring to a savory salad, I find I’m hard pressed to enjoy a strictly vegetable salad ever since.

Easy Chicken and Rice Pot Pie

This chicken pot pie recipe came out of a need to use up the leftover rice I had in my fridge, so I purchased a store-bought rotisserie chicken and whipped up an easy white sauce.

The result is this delicious and easy chicken recipe that nobody would ever guess came from leftovers. Especially if you take a minute to add those fun little carrot and pea cut-outs to adorn the top pie crust. Adorable!!

Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados

If you’re a taco Tuesday type of gal, then you may want to switch things up just a wee little bit by serving these Healthy Turkey Taco Stuffed Avocados.

If, by chance, you don’t think these are your style because you’d be missing the crunch from a traditional taco shell, then why not crunch a few chips over the top to garnish? This way you still have the crunch you desire, but you’ll still be cutting back on a few of the carbs as well.

Breaded Baked Italian Chicken Legs

This is my updated riff on the old favorite of Shake ‘n Bake chicken from when I was growing up.

This recipe for Baked Italian Chicken Legs actually has nothing at all to do with the flavors of  Shake ‘n Bake (which was far too salty for my taste). It’s only the preparation method that is the same. The ingredients are put into a bag, the chicken is added, and then it’s time to shake…and bake. What could be easier?
