Oven BBQ Salmon

 

Oven BBQ Salmon

This Oven BBQ Salmon is baked in the oven to flaky, tender perfection with a thick, caramelized BBQ glaze on top with only TWO ingredients – salmon and barbecue sauce (plus a little oil, salt, and pepper). You’re going to love this easy 15 minute recipe, and since you use the broiler it’s even faster than regular baking!

You all LOVE my Oven BBQ Chicken recipe– it’s been one of my top posts for years and has over 200 five-star reviews. The trick lies in the basting technique, which I adapted for this oven-broiled BBQ salmon recipe.

But the thing I love about this BBQ salmon as opposed to chicken? It’s healthier, it’s less messy (since chicken grease gets everywhere), and it takes MUCH less time.

You only need about 10 minutes of cooking time and 5 minutes of prep for this BBQ salmon recipe. You’ll need to take it out of the oven to baste with BBQ sauce a couple of times, which results in a thick, sticky sweet, deliciously caramelized layer on top of the salmon.

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

 

Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips

Homemade tortilla chips baked in the oven with just a little olive oil and salt cook up to crispy perfection! Squeeze a little fresh lime juice when they come out for a boost of flavor, and serve with your favorite salsa, dip, or use them to make nachos. All you need is some corn tortillas and 15 minutes!

If you have some corn tortillas hanging out in your fridge, this is a great way to use them up. You can have delicious, golden, crispy, thick homemade tortilla chips in only a few minutes.

I love store-bought tortilla chips out of the bag. But homemade chips taste different than the kind you buy at the store, and they’re a real treat. If you’ve never tried them, now’s the time!

Homemade tortilla chips are made with cut up corn tortillas, with a little oil to coat and salt to season. I like squeezing on a little fresh lime juice for extra flavor when they’re done baking.

They aren’t quite as crispy as store-bought chips, but still crispy enough, with a slightly chewy texture that makes them taste more hearty.

Homemade Salsa

 

Homemade Salsa

This Homemade Salsa recipe comes together in 5 minutes with the simplest, healthy ingredients. This Texas Mexican restaurant style salsa has the perfect consistency that’s not too chunky and not too thin- perfect for dipping chips, serving on tacos, or using in your other favorite Tex-Mex recipes!

Mexican restaurants in Texas do salsa really well. It flows freely (both in quantity and the fact that it costs nothing!) with fresh tortilla chips. It’s always packed with fresh flavor and has the perfect consistency.

So here’s how to make your over own Texas restaurant-style red salsa in only 5 minutes with the help of a food processor!

This recipe uses canned whole tomatoes, rather than fresh. It’s a shortcut that doesn’t skimp on flavor and, in my opinion, is actually better than using fresh tomatoes.

You can enjoy this low calorie, healthy, fat free salsa with tortilla chips, on tacos, in burritos, spooned on top of scrambled eggs… or any other way you use salsa!

Ingredients and substitutions

  • Canned whole, peeled tomatoes – you may substitute diced in a pinch (drain them first as indicated in the recipe) but I think whole are best for the texture of this salsa.

Bruschetta Pasta

 

Bruschetta Pasta

This Bruschetta Pasta recipe is packed with fresh tomatoes, basil, garlic, and olive oil. It comes together in a mere 15 minutes with 6 ingredients and you don’t have to cook anything except the pasta! Just mix up a simple Bruschetta, and toss with warm pasta for one of the easiest, fastest recipes of your life. And it’s vegetarian (vegan optional)!

Really? 15 minutes? YUP. You’ve got to make this easy pasta recipe as soon as possible, and before summer ends! And as long as you have olive oil, salt, and pepper, you just need 6 more ingredients. It’s so easy!

My favorite part about this recipe is that it doesn’t require any cooking aside from the pasta.

You just mix all the ingredients in a bowl to make a quick bruschetta, let it sit for a few minutes, then toss with the warm pasta when it’s ready. No roasting anything or heating up your kitchen… and a really minimal amount of dishes for easy clean up. It’s the perfect summer pasta recipe!

Tortilla Egg Wraps with Mushrooms and Olives

 

Tortilla Egg Wraps with Mushrooms and Olives

These Tortilla Egg Wraps are packed with Mediterranean flavor from mushrooms, oregano, black olives, mozzarella cheese, and sun-dried tomato paste. Inspired by Nadiya Hussain’s recipe on “Nadiya’s Time to Eat” on Netflix, this 10-minute recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

As you may already know if you follow me on social media or subscribe to my email list, I had an unfortunate accident a few weeks ago involving my kneecap and my concrete garage floor. My kneecap broke in half- I’m on the mend after surgery, and am feeling much better.

As a result, I have spent a LOT of time watching TV. Honestly, discovering new shows to watch is something I haven’t indulged in since before I had kids. And when I discovered a new cooking show on Netflix to watch I was so pumped!

“Nadiya’s Time to Eat” features Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain, cooking up really fast and easy recipes with time-saving shortcuts. Her smile, humor, and cheerful personality are the icing on the (delicious) cake. Give this show a watch!

These Mushroom and Egg Wraps are inspired by her egg rolls recipe featured on the show.

One Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta

 

One Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta

This easy Taco Pasta recipe is made in one pot for fast clean-up with melty cheese in every bite, packed with flavor and healthy ingredients like lean ground beef, black beans, corn, and bell peppers. You’re going to want to make this crowd-pleasing 30 minute meal every week!

One pot pasta is such a timesaver and such an easy way to make a flavor-packed pasta dish. It’s one of my favorite weeknight dinner hacks.

The dry pasta cooks right in the pot with all the other ingredients, rather than boiling it separately in water and then adding it in. This does two things:

  1. The pasta absorbs all the delicious flavors from the spices, broth, and veggies.
  2. All the starch from the pasta stays in the pot, creating a thick and luxurious sauce that sticks to every bite.

Plus, fewer dishes!

Ingredients and substitutions

  • Veggies: Onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and frozen corn. I prefer using yellow onion, but a red, white, or sweet will do in a pinch.

...GET THE RECIPE for One Pot Cheesy Taco Pasta!

Homemade Taco Seasoning

 

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Making your own Homemade Taco Seasoning takes only 5 minutes and you probably already have the spices needed in your pantry! It’s so much cheaper than buying a pre-made mix, and it’s a great way to add healthy, low-calorie flavor to your favorite Mexican-inspired recipes.

This DIY taco seasoning mix is perfect to add to chicken, beef, or shrimp in tacos or enchiladas. Or, you can add it to any Mexican-inspired pasta, rice, or other dish. It’s a versatile way to add healthy flavor to food!

When you use lots of spices, you can pump up the flavor of food without the need for too much added fat.

And it’s so nice to have a few go-to spice mixes ready to go in your pantry so you can whip up recipes in a jiffy without the need for measuring each and every spice.

This taco seasoning recipe includes salt, which means you won’t need to add much, or any, salt to the recipe you’re making. You can always leave the salt out of the mix if you prefer to control it on a case by case basis.

Greek Salad

 

Greek Salad

This easy Greek salad takes 15 minutes to make and is dressed in a simple, authentic red wine vinegar dressing and packed with Mediterranean flavor! Cucumbers, tomato, feta cheese, kalamata olives, bell pepper, and red onion are the stars in this yummy side dish that’s super easy to prep ahead of time.

Having a go-to salad recipe for any occasion is a must for any home cook. This Greek Salad recipe is mine, and I’m so excited to finally share it!

What makes a Greek salad “authentic?’

People may argue about what “authentic” means when it comes to Greek salads. Lettuce or no lettuce, bell peppers or no bell peppers, crumbled feta or a big ol’ hunk placed on top, etc.

Here’s how I feel- lettuce, if you use it, should not be the star of the show, and the dressing should be unapologetically vinegary and simple.

I used romaine lettuce here (only about 2 cups), and thinly sliced so it wouldn’t overpower the other delicious ingredients. The salad is loaded with salty feta and briny kalamata olives, as it should be.

...GET THE RECIPE for Greek Salad!

Greek Chicken Bites

 

Greek Chicken Bites

These Greek Chicken Bites seasoned with lemon, garlic, and oregano are little flavor-packed nuggets that you’ll want to use for everything! Add to a salad, wrap in a flatbread for a gyro sandwich, serve as a main course, or eat them on their own dipped in yogurt sauce. They take 20 minutes to make, 5 ingredients, and they’re a versatile low-carb, paleo/whole30 compliant recipe!

I can’t get over how simple and fast this recipe for Greek Chicken Bites is. We had them on the side of a simple Greek salad, which was the perfect summertime meal.

The chicken bites are cooked in a skillet on the stovetop, and because the chicken is cut into small pieces, they only take 10 minutes to cook (and no heating up your kitchen with the oven!).

That, plus 10 minutes prep makes for a super fast, crowd-pleasing recipe. You’ll need at least 20 minutes of marinating time to get the best flavor, but if you’re in a rush you can skip this (or prep the day before to let it sit overnight in the fridge to marinate).

Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta (Garides Saganaki)

 

Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta (Garides Saganaki)

Garides Saganaki, or Greek Shrimp with Tomatoes and Feta Cheese, is a one-skillet, easy recipe that’s packed with bright, fresh flavors. And it takes only 25 minutes! It’s low-carb on its own but I love serving it with crusty bread to mop up all the sauce.

You’re going to LOVE this easy Mediterranean shrimp recipe. The flavors from onion and garlic, fresh lemon juice and oregano, and salty feta cheese with savory tomatoes is out of this world.

This Greek shrimp dish is similar to a stew, so it’s great to serve with some crusty bread or pita, rice, grits/polenta, or pasta to make sure you can mop up the sauce.

There are many versions of garides saganaki out there, and I sought out to make the easiest possible version with the most readily available ingredients.

Some recipes use ouzo; this uses white wine instead (which can be omitted).

Some call for cooking the shrimp separately; this recipe poaches them directly in the tomato sauce for simplicity and more infused flavor.

Jalapeño Cornbread

 

Jalapeño Cornbread

This recipe for Jalapeño Cornbread is made with pickled jalapeños and the brine, so the flavor infused into every bite! It’s moist and packed with sweet and spicy flavor, and the perfect side for chili or BBQ. I love serving it with a drizzle of honey!

There’s not much better than homemade sweet cornbread paired with chili. It may be a million degrees here in Texas, and it’s not even close to fall, but the other night I made pumpkin chili with this cornbread and I have no regrets about it!

Whether you need a side for chili, or your favorite BBQ food, or you need an easy dish to take to a potluck, this Jalapeño Cornbread is sure to be a winner.

And it’s really easy to make it mild or spicy, depending on your preferences! I used mild jalapeños, which meant my kids gobbled it up.

Ingredients and Susbstitutions

  • Pickled Jalapeños and the brine– I used homemade quick pickled jalapeños, but normally I would use store-bought. You can usually find store-bought in both mild and spicy forms.

...GET THE RECIPE for Jalapeño Cornbread!

BLT Pasta Salad

 

BLT Pasta Salad

This BLT Pasta Salad recipe is perfect as a side dish or main course, and is smothered in a creamy and tangy mayo-based garlic and herb dressing. It’s easy to make ahead of time for potlucks, picnics, or BBQs, and it only takes 25 minutes to make!

This pasta salad recipe has all the flavors you love about BLT sandwiches- thick-cut bacon, crisp romaine lettuce, and sweet tomatoes- smothered in a creamy mayo-based dressing. You’re going to love how easily this comes together and how delicious it tastes!

You only need one bowl and 25 minutes for this easy recipe. While the bacon is cooking, it’s easy to save time and prep the remaining ingredients and mix the dressing.

Serve this easy BLT pasta salad recipe at your next BBQ or party- it would be perfect for the Fourth of July!

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Macaroni- another small-medium pasta shape may be used, such as farfalle (bowties), penne, rotini, shells, etc. You can also use gluten-free, whole wheat, or grain-free (such as chickpea) pasta.
  • Bacon- I love thick-cut hickory smoked bacon, but you can use any kind, including turkey bacon or a vegetarian/vegan bacon substitute.

Quick Pickled Jalapeños

 

Quick Pickled Jalapeños

Making Homemade Quick Pickled Jalapeños is so fast, easy, and delicious, you’ll never want to buy store-bought again! These are sweet and spicy, flavor-packed from garlic and oregano, and you only need 10 minutes of hands-on time.

Whether you have a bunch of jalapeños growing in your (or your neighbor’s) garden, or you find a bulk package at Trader Joe’s, one of the best things you can do with them is pickle them.

This recipe doesn’t require any canning or preserving– it’s an easy way to pickle jalapeño peppers quickly, and they’ll last for months in your fridge!

You can use them on tacos, on sandwiches or burgers, on nachos, or in any number of recipes. But honestly, they’re so delicious, you may just want to eat them straight from the jar!

In this post I’ll explain how to make quick pickled jalapeños, tips for making them less spicy, and give recipe suggestions for how to use them.

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Jalapeño peppers – you can use this pickling method for other pepper varieties, like Serranos or other chiles.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

 

Sweet and Sour Chicken

This Sweet and Sour Chicken is an easy, 25-minute Chinese stir fry recipe with pineapple, bell pepper, and the most delicious sweet and tangy sauce! It’s gluten-free and so much better and cheaper than take-out – serve it with cooked rice, noodles, or on lettuce wraps.

Making your favorite Chinese take-out food from home is so much easier than you’d think! And this easy sweet and sour chicken with pineapple recipe is no exception.

The chicken is seasoned with soy sauce and spices, then coated in cornstarch and pan-fried until crispy. Then, it’s mixed with sautéed peppers, onions, and pineapple, along with the most delicious sweet and sour sauce made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

You can serve it over rice or noodles, eat it plain, or eat it on cool, refreshing lettuce wraps.

This recipe is inspired by Jessica in the Kitchen’s Vegan Sweet and Sour Tofu. Check out her blog for more vegetarian and vegan recipe inspiration!

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Chicken Breasts – you can use thighs if you prefer, or a mixture.

Easy Shakshuka with Feta

 

Easy Shakshuka with Feta

Shakshuka with feta is an easy one-pan vegetarian Mediterranean egg recipe you’re going to want to add to your recipe folder for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Eggs are simmered in a tomato-based sauce with peppers, onions, and warm spices. Then, it’s topped with melty feta cheese.

Shakshuka is a common Tunisian breakfast recipe, but versions of it can be found all over the Mediterranean- across North Africa, all the way to Italy (where it’s more commonly called eggs in purgatory). Common other spellings include Chakchouka and Shakshouka.

First, there’s a simple tomato sauce, boosted with sautéed onions and peppers and savory spices (cumin, garlic, smoked paprika, crushed red pepper, and cilantro). Then, eggs are cracked directly into the sauce and simmered until cooked to your liking. Crumbled feta cheese is sprinkled on top of the shakshuka and melts into every warm bite.

It’s perfect served with crusty bread or pita. And while traditionally a breakfast food, I love it any time of day!

Best of all, you only need 25 minutes and one pan to make it!

These Baked Meatballs are made with all beef, they’re SO EASY to make, and this recipe uses only a handful of ingredients you probably already have on hand. Serve them with spaghetti and red sauce, use them for Italian meatball subs, and more! PLUS, they’re freezable.

The Best Black Food Bloggers to Follow

Here are some of my all-time favorite food bloggers the internet has to offer- those from whom I draw inspiration for my own cooking, photography, and food blogging practice. In this list you’ll find Black bloggers that share vegan/plant-based recipes, African cuisine, air fryer, Instant Pot, and slow cooker recipes, Caribbean and Jamaican cuisine, Southern soul food, Cajun and Creole cuisine, and more all-around delicious healthy, wholesome recipes.

Food blogging is an industry, just like other industries. And Black bloggers face barriers in it, just like with other businesses. In reflecting on my business practices this week I realized I had a striking lack of inclusivity in the way I run my blog.

This week, I’m pausing all food content and creation. Instead, I’m focusing on an actionable plan for inclusivity and anti-racism as a permanent pillar of how I run my business, alongside continued activism in my personal life.

I invite you to reflect on your own internet browsing to uplift Black bloggers and their businesses. Sustained, small acts like this can help change larger, systemic issues faced by the Black community for truly meaningful change.

Instant Pot Barley

 

Instant Pot Barley

Cooking barley (pearl or hulled) in an instant pot or pressure cooker is the fastest, easiest way to cook this heart-healthy grain to fluffy perfection in only 20 minutes! Use cooked barley as you would rice or oatmeal- in salads, for breakfast, and all kinds of recipes. 

Barley is a nutty, earthy grain with a wonderful flavor and chewy texture that’s really inexpensive. It’s packed full of soluble fiber and nutrients, making it a heart healthy grain. It’s kind of an in-between of oats and rice – more versatile and less slimy/mushy than oats, and more hearty and nutritious than rice.

I love using barley to make all kinds of things, but one drawback is that it takes a long time to cook. Enter: the Instant Pot!

Barley can take up to an hour to cook on the stovetop. But if you use a pressure cooker, it will only take 20-25 minutes of completely hands-off time (plus the time it takes to come to pressure). No stirring, just the instant pot working its magic while you live your life.

You can make a batch of barley and store it in your fridge for a few days, using it throughout the week in recipes that are very quick if you already have the barley cooked.

...GET THE RECIPE for Instant Pot Barley!

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Tacos

 

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Tacos

These Healthy Buffalo Chicken Tacos are an easy recipe to make in only 20 minutes! Chicken breasts are thinly sliced and cooked, smothered in buffalo sauce, and served on toasted corn tortillas with crunchy celery and bell pepper salsa and cool, creamy ranch (or blue cheese) dressing.

I find myself craving buffalo chicken constantly, but take-out buffalo wings come at a high price (especially in terms of calories!).

So I LOVE making alternative buffalo recipes that are much healthier than traditional wings. All the flavor and none of the guilt.

These tacos (which happen to also be gluten-free) come in at only 195 calories per taco!

They’re made light and healthy with sautéed chicken breast meat (with no breading), and a secret flavor-boosting ingredient added to the sauce to keep it thick, mellow, and luxurious without tons of butter. OK I’ll just tell you- it’s ketchup!

And the healthy celery and bell pepper salsa adds cool crunchiness and veggies to the tacos, with lots of bright flavor to balance out the buffalo sauce.

...GET THE RECIPE for Healthy Buffalo Chicken Tacos!

Mexican Pulled Chicken

 

Mexican Pulled Chicken

This Mexican Pulled (or shredded) Chicken is an easy, healthy recipe to add to burritos, tacos, enchiladas, or served as a main course. Chicken thighs are marinated in a smoky, flavorful spice mixture and seared, creating the most delicious crispy, crunchy browned bits, then shredded with two forks.

This is the only chicken recipe you will ever need for all your Mexican-inspired recipe needs. It’s absolutely delicious eaten on its own, in enchiladas or tacos, on salads, in even soup.

I like sautéing veggies in the skillet after the chicken cooks and serving everything on top of rice with chopped tomato and avocado for a healthy burrito bowl.

And it’s the perfect thing to cook in bulk to enjoy in different ways throughout the week!

I set out to recreate Chipotle’s grilled chicken to make homemade burrito bowls and, after doing some research on copycat recipes, found myself without a vital ingredient: chipotle peppers in adobo. To get a similarly smoky taste, I used smoked paprika in the marinade instead, along with ground coriander, cumin, and garlic powder.

Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce/Dressing

 

Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce/Dressing

Ever wonder how to make a homemade honey mustard sauce? It’s so easy with only four ingredients and 5 minutes! This honey mustard can be used as a dipping sauce, salad dressing, sandwich spread, or even a marinade.

You probably already have everything you need to make this easy recipe. A little mayonnaise, mustard, honey, and vinegar and you’ve got yourself a homemade, better than chick-fil-a honey mustard sauce!

I love that this version doesn’t have any preservatives or additives, like many store-bought or fast food honey mustards.

This honey mustard is perfect as a dip for homemade chicken nuggets or oven-baked chicken tenders, but it’s also a great sandwich spread, salad dressing, or marinade for grilled chicken or pork.

It stays good in the fridge for weeks, and you can use any kind of mustard you want!

How to make homemade honey mustard sauce

Just whisk some mayonnaise, mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar together in a small bowl. That’s it!

You could also mix it right up in a jar, to save on dishes, and store the covered jar right in your fridge.

Juicy Oven-Baked Pork Chops with Garlic, Lemon, and Herbs

 

Juicy Oven-Baked Pork Chops with Garlic, Lemon, and Herbs

These Oven-Baked Pork Chops come out perfectly juicy every time, with delicious flavor from garlic, lemon, and herbs. You only need 30 minutes and 5 ingredients for this low-carb recipe. The pork chops are pan-seared briefly and finished in the oven. And the luscious white wine and butter pan sauce, while optional, is so easy to make!

I don’t know how I don’t have a pork chops recipe on the blog already, but better late than never! I love how fast and easy pork chops are to make. They’re a lean, healthy protein, they’re inexpensive, and such a crowd pleaser!

These oven-baked pork chops are quick and easy enough to make for a casual weeknight dinner but delicious enough to serve for a dinner party or special occasion, especially with the pan sauce drizzled on top.

Pan-searing the chops before baking creates texture and flavor for a perfectly cooked, tender, juicy pork chop every time. And the flavor of the fresh lemon, garlic, oregano, and thyme are the perfect complements to the pork, which is somewhat bland on its own.

Here’s how to make this super easy 5-ingredient (besides oil, salt, and pepper), 30 minute recipe!

Quick Pickled Red Onions

 

Quick Pickled Red Onions

This recipe for Quick Pickled Red Onions is easy to make and perfect for tacos, sandwiches, pasta salads, sandwiches, and more! They’re cheap, and the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, with all the “bite” from raw red onions completely removed. And you only need a few ingredients and 5 minutes of prep!

I love how fast and easy these pickled red onions are to make- just add some ingredients to a jar, shake, and refrigerate. That’s it!

They’ll last for weeks in the fridge, if you somehow experience the miracle of not eating them all within a few hours. They’re addicting, added to any number of recipes, and frankly eaten plain out of the jar.

I wouldn’t THINK of popping a piece of raw red onion into my mouth for a snack, but it’s different when they’re pickled! Quick pickling the red onions takes all the bite out of them, creating a delicious sweet and tangy flavor with a soft outside and crunchy inside.

These pickled red onions first appeared on a Bowl of Delicious recipe for crispy brussels sprouts with pickled red onions.
