Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala

Cold weather is here, and a lot of the time that means that you just want hearty comfort food with as little work as possible — enter the slow cooker! Chicken Marsala is one of my boyfriend’s favorite dishes to cook, so I decided that this time I’d make it for him — I’d just tweak the recipe a bit so that I don’t have to work as hard, but it would taste just as fresh and good.

Deconstructed Paleo Chicken Egg Roll Bowl

Looking for recipes that both you and your family members who aren’t Paleo can enjoy together? This is definitely one of them. My boyfriend doesn’t follow diets of any kind, typically considering himself a meat-and-potatoes kind of man. I offered him a big bowl of this as soon as I took it off the stove and I couldn’t believe how much he liked it!

Easy Orange Chicken Stir-Fry

This Easy Orange Chicken Stir-Fry is easy and paleo-approved — and the one-pan preparation makes cleanup a breeze! I love how flavorful this is without being overwhelming; sometimes when I get orange chicken from a restaurant, I feel like I’m just eating solid orange juice and the flavor is too sweet for me. This preparation leaves you with a subtle, fragrant orange flavor and a small kick from the fresh garlic and ginger, making it great for all palates. If you do like more of that flavor, the fresh orange garnish makes it easy for you to adjust. And, as

One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies (Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Carb, Whole30)

About this One-Pan Roasted Chicken and Veggies… I’ve mentioned a few times before that I love to do meal prep — and here’s why!

But most importantly, it helps you stay on track: you’re more likely to stick to your paleo/keto/clean eating etc. if there’s already food and snacks available to you that stick to that plan. If you have to go foraging for something, you’re more likely

Pan Roasted Rosemary Chicken and Mushrooms

We just got our very first cast iron pan (a cast iron grill pan, no less!) so I decided to try it out with a pan roasting recipe. If you don’t have cast iron, any heavy pan will do — just make sure that it’s safe to go into your oven. This recipe is another potential one-pan recipe that utilizes your oven, so it’s great for the colder months when you’re feeling a little lazy and cold, but want some great food.

Soba Noodles with Glazed Tofu and Stir Fried Veggies (Vegetarian, Gluten Free)

I got my inspiration for this recipe from a few different places. First and foremost, DreamyLeaf’s Teriyaki Glazed Tofu Steaks recipe — she posted a picture on Instagram and though I’ve never been a big tofu person, I almost started drooling just looking at it. I also had some inspiration from a meal I had at Canteen in Toronto, where I had my first taste of soba noodles. And, as usual, I just kind of threw my own random tastes and ideas in there, as well.
