Week 6 #osgcookbook Challenge

Well I must say, this week’s four recipes certainly aren’t real lookers.  Note to self: Do not choose four recipes that are all in the grey-brown family.  I tried to pretty-up the mashed potatoes with some parsley but I’m still underwhelmed by this mosaic of photos.  Oh well, live and learn. Maybe my choices were… Continue reading Week 6 #osgcookbook Challenge

Thai Green Curry

For this next 5 ingredient, 15 minute meal, I give you my favorite Thai dish- Green Curry! When I go out to eat at a Thai restaurant, Green Curry is my favorite thing to order.  The velvety smooth coconut-milk sauce is heavenly, and the spice level is so beautifully balanced with all the sweet veggies… Continue reading Thai Green Curry

Week 5 #osgcookbook challenge

Last week I mentioned that I was slowly approaching the point where the recipes in the Oh She Glows cookbook which I still haven’t made, were left untouched until now for a reason.  Either they don’t really tempt me, seem a little too difficult to make, or have a long and expensive ingredient list.  I’ve… Continue reading Week 5 #osgcookbook challenge

Spicy Potato Pitas

This 5 ingredient, 15 minute meal is not only quick and easy to make, it’s one of my new favorite dinners.  It is very loosely based on a delicious Indian dish called Masala Dosa.  If you’re like me, your typical go-to at an Indian restaurant is Butter Chicken or some similar curry that was put… Continue reading Spicy Potato Pitas

Gym Night Quinoa Bowl

Welcome to the first of my series of 5 ingredient, 15 minute meals. With a busy lifestyle, it can be hard to stick to a healthy diet. Often times, the recipes I find that claim to be ‘fast’ and ‘easy’ are either tasteless, use shortcut ingredients that are not good for you, or are simply… Continue reading Gym Night Quinoa Bowl
