My Cooking Hero….

October 25, 2011

Is Katie from Good Life Eats.  For a long time now I’ve wanted to share how much I depend on this woman!  When we started to eat healthier we ate a lot of crappy food.  It was a HARD transition.  But now I’ve found some great recipes and we eat great food that is really good for us!  And fully half the recipes I use are hers.

Grilled Citrus Chicken Kebabs:  Yummy!

Tandoori Chicken Salad:  One of the best salads I’ve had in my life

Roasted Cauliflower and Tomatoes: We always have over pasta

Quinoa Stuffed Red Bell Peppers: We adore!  And we used to hate stuffed peppers!

Pasta with Butternut Parmesan Sauce: Brad asks for all the time, replace the half & half of course with no fat evaporated milk

Quinoa Taco Salad: I can’t really think of a healthier meal

No Bake Grilled Vegetable Lasagne: Easy and good

Ground chicken lettuce wraps: I love them.  Brad thinks they’re alright but hates the idea of lettuce wraps in general.  I always have to use ground turkey because ground chicken is really hard to find

Chicken Black Bean and Spinach Enchiladas: Replace the sour cream with no fat greek yogurt to make a fully healthy meal.  HANDS DOWN the best enchiladas I’ve ever had in my life!  We had these on Sunday!

Zucchini Nachos: We had these last night!  One of the best homemade nachos I’ve ever had.

Indian Butter chicken: Replace the heavy cream/ half and half with no fat evaporated milk and you’ve got a healthy, fair indian dish at home.

Our new General Conference Breakfast Staples?  Maple and Cardamom Spiced Pears and Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I want to share her with you and all the world because it’s worth it to spend some time over at Good Life Eats and try something out.  I’ve never once made anything of hers I didn’t like.

Oh Katie Goodman of Good Life Eats, I love you so much for the greatness you’ve brought to my kitchen!
