I love the slow cooker (or Crock Pot)! Especially in the busy fall and winter months. When you can put something on, have it cook and smell yummy and not have to do much! Oh that’s perfection! This Creamy Broccoli and Wild Rice Slow Cooker Soup totally works for the cooler months when you want…
Next up on Brown Bag Lunch month I bring you, Pesto Pasta. I’ve made this pasta dish to have more veggies and goodies in it than pasta. I like to make sure that lunch is a healthy meal!
Ok, let’s be honest. You made some New Year’s resolutions to be healthier. Maybe to eat healthier or exercise more or something. And, well, it’s the middle of January, and your enthusiasm may be waning a little. Maybe just a little! That’s where my Shaved Broccoli Salad comes in.
I love mac & cheese. But, I don’t eat it very often because of all the calories & saturated fats. But, this one’s awesome! With all that butternut squash, you can cut back on the cheese without losing flavor or creaminess. All the pleasures of mac & cheese with no guilt! #pasta #dinner #lightened
This Sausage, Broccoli, and Roasted Lentils makes a great fall dinner or lunch. And, it makes a great budget-friendly weeknight meal. The roasted lentils give a nice spicy smoky crunch to the dish. The smoky roasted broccoli helps lighten it up, while the sausages (even if they are vegan) are meaty and yummy.
As part of my remaking our childhood favorites, I thought I’d take on the Rice-a-Roni copy cat challenge. The Homemade Broccoli Au Gratin Rice-a-Roni is really close to the original. And, I have a Mixed Veggie Rice-a-Roni that has way too many veggies to be compared to the boring packaged stuff! #chidhoodFavorites #healthier #copycat
