Easy Meatloaf

While I love good food I’d rather be on the sofa relaxing with a cup of coffee mindlessly watching Housewives of Beverly Hills than slaving away over a complicated recipe. This Easy Meatloaf recipe shows once again, that  a meal doesn’t have to be difficult to prepare in order for it to be spectacular.  Continue reading »

Greek Salad with Quinoa, Avocado & Grilled Chicken

You know how very once in a while you will eat something and it’s so good you become obsessed? I seriously could eat this Greek Salad with Quinoa, Avocado & Grilled Chicken every day for lunch and dinner! My niece introduced me to this Greek salad from Siggy’s in Soho, NYC and apparently it has a cult following. As I do often, I immediately went home and tried to copy it. I did add some feta, tomatoes, red onion and chickpeas to the recipe though which I think makes it even better! What’s so special about a Greek Salad you ask? I love Greek salads with grilled chicken to begin with but the addition of quinoa for texture and parsley which gives it a  fresh flavor just takes it to the next level. Trust me, you are going to be addicted to this salad! Continue reading »

Quinoa Bowl with Chicken, Mushrooms & Onions

I think I could eat this simple, healthy and easy Quinoa Bowl with Chicken, Mushrooms & Onions every day and not get tired of it! I can’t say that about too many foods except for Greek salad with grilled chicken maybe. You can make a nice little quinoa bowl by adding some pickled vegetables like kimchi (I like Sunja’s brand the best… the other ones sometimes have a fishy taste) or Indian pickled mangoes along with some assorted roasted vegetables. If you don’t have pickled vegetables on hand, you can serve this with a salad using a vinegar based dressing – the important thing is the vinegar because the flavors balance each other out so perfectly.
