Perfect Pesto

Pesto is so simple, yet versatile.  For this week’s meal prep I made pesto chicken rolls, orzo pasta with pesto and tomatoes with roasted brussle sprouts.  Try doubling the recipe and freezing the pesto for later.  I would recommend freezing cubes of pesto in an ice tray, then empty the frozen cubes of pesto into…

Turkey Cabbage Wrap

I promise you this wrap is more tasty than you could ever imagine, and it’s healthy too! A great thing about cabbage is it’s a very durable  vegetable that will not get soggy or wilt if you plan to use this recipe in your weekly meal prep. If you do plan to do so, you…

Chicken Meatballs

Chicken meatballs are easy to make and very versatile. I am blown away that nearly everyone I have talked to about them have never heard or imagined making meatballs with chicken! Once made, they can be used in almost any meal. I make a large batch and store them in the freezer for later use….

Stuffed Chicken Breast

I am sure you have heard it before, but chicken breast is a great source of lean protein.  It is however a very tricky meat to cook because it is easy to overcook, and undercooking can make you very sick. It doesn’t matter what you do to season it, a dry chicken breast is hard…

Savory Stuffed Cabbage Cake

I have made cabbage rolls before and this recipe is close to the same concept, but layered and served like a cake. It is undoubtedly less messy and time consuming, looks cool, and a…

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwiches

Ham and Cheddar Ravioli in a Honey Butter Sauce
