Spinach Salad w/Potatoes, Olives + Feta

Spinach Salad with Potatoes, Olives, and Feta

A hearty salad topped with sautéed potatoes, onions, and green beans tossed with a bright basil vinaigrette – plus a great giveaway to help you make healthy choices in the new year!

Lemon Chicken with Olives and Potatoes

Lemon Chicken with Olives and Potatoes | @HealthyDelish

This lemon chicken is the perfect one-pot meal! A slow braise means the chicken will fall off the bones; potatoes and carrots soaks up the bright, lemony sauce.   It’s January and, just like that, a switch flipped. I never thought I’d see the day, but I’m sick of cookies (I give it about a […]

Can we get real with each other for a minute?

Chicken and Pepper Pasta {+ Marzetti Giveaway!}

Grilled Chicken and Pepper Pasta-3

Grilled Chicken and Pepper Pasta

Spring is finally here! It was so gorgeous this weekend that I wanted to spend every second possible outside. From the looks of my blog analytics, we’re all on the same page… there weren’t very many people looking at recipes this week and I definitely don’t blame them. I have the perfect recipe for you though – it takes practically no time or effort at all. If you have a burner on your grill, you can even make the whole thing outside (and it will be done in even less time, since those grill burners are so hot that they bring water to a boil in the bat of an eye!)

Braised Eggplant with Ground Lamb

I’m so excited to finally share this braised eggplant with ground lamb with you all – I made it almost a whole month ago and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since!

The recipe came out of a craving for eggplant… for days, all I wanted was eggplant that was cooked until it was so tender that it collapsed in on itself. I had no idea what I wanted the rest of the meal to be, but once I got the image of that eggplant in my head I just couldn’t shake it. The end result – tender, braised eggplant and tomatoes cooked with richly spiced lamb and topped with cool yogurt sauce and tangy cucumbers – ended up being perfect and is one of my favorite meals of 2012.
