Fish Tacos with Chipotle Lime Crema

fishtacos_1Hey guys, remember me? I know, it is has been a LONG time since I have created a new recipe. My life for the past 4 months can be summed up in one line, “Mermaid tails, blocking boards and homework, OH MY.”

But now I have an entire three months to stock up my Etsy shop with baby blankets and other goodies as well as spend some time in the kitchen making some yummy meals for you to try!

These tacos are perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. I wasn’t even planning on blogging them but I shared a photo in our Challenge Group and the ladies went nuts. Did I mention our fitness and nutrition Challenge Group is amazing? <3

Don’t like fish? These would be yummy with shrimp or even chicken!

The spice level on these can be adjusted to your liking, just adjust the amount of chipotle you use, we like things spicy so we made them pretty hot.

Thanks for sticking with me for my unintentionally long hiatus, I promise to make it up to everyone over summer.

Greek Chicken Kabobs with Tzatziki

We have had a brief glimpse greek_kabob_1of spring here in Colorado, so that means grilling. This recipe only takes a few minutes to prep and can be on your grill in under an hour.

I would recommend making the Tzatziki at least a few hours before, it is even better if you let it sit in the fridge over night.

Only 30 minutes is required for the chicken to marinate but as with most marinades it gets better the long it sits!

Crockpot Shredded Salsa Chicken

Salsa Chicken

Life went from zero to sixty in a matter of a week with the start of the new semester. After my first day of classes I decided it was time to bust out the trusty crock pot since spare time is a bit scarce these day.
Between homework and Beachbody Coaching, I have been one busy bee. This shredded chicken seriously takes about 3 minutes to get into the crock pot. You can make it as spicy of as mild as you want and the best part is… (drum roll please)…. only 4 ingredients and so much flavor. WIN.

Sun Dried Tomato and Feta Turkey Meatloaf

meatloaf

First day back on track was a success! I know, I know, another feta dish. This is the last one for a bit I promise. I have finally made a dent in my Costco container of feta, so I can start cooking with other things.

This yummy meal is prepped and in the oven in about 10 minutes! No more dry, boring meatloaf. The secret to a moist, delicious turkey meatloaf is soaking the bread in a little bit of almond milk or regular milk instead of using dry bread crumbs. Continue reading…

Greek Pork Chops

Today was day one of a 5 day Clean Eating Challenge that myself and a few friends were running. I had the best of intentions to wake up early, go grocery shopping and meal prep today, but as usual I got lost in the mystical land of homework and completely lost track of time. Before I knew it, it was 4:00 and I had not gone grocery shopping, nor did I have any idea what I was making for dinner. Continue reading…

Perfectly Cooked Brown Rice

Rice_1

We eat A LOT of brown rice in my house, well, since I started cooking it in the oven. You probably think I’m crazy, but just trust me. I used to hate making brown rice because it took forever and never came out right. Sticky, gummy, under-cooked, you name it, I have experienced it. This recipe right here is a game changer, so much so, I have it taped to my rice container! It only takes a few  minutes to prep, then its off to the oven. Perfect EVERY time!

Now I have a large batch of perfectly cooked brown rice ready for quick lunches and dinner all week. Continue reading…

Clean Taco Seasoning

Taco Seasoning

So, I love tacos. Taco salad, crunchy tacos, soft tacos, chicken, beef, whatever, no taco discrimination here! What I don’t love is MSG, preservatives or sodium. This taco seasoning gets rid of all the garbage and tastes DELICIOUS! You can adjust the quantities to your family’s liking but right now I would say it’s darn near perfect. Not too hot, with the perfect balance of flavors.
