Hi everybody! It’s been so long since I’ve hopped on to do a post. There’s a reason for that, which will hopefully be in my next post and will reveal my personal word for 2016. Do you choose a word to define your year? This is my first time, and I’m excited to share it with you…even if it is almost February!
One of my goals in 2016 is to definitely come up with new recipes for all of you, specifically some week night dinner ideas. We all know that week night meals can be overwhelming, so I want the meals or sides to be easy and nutritious.
First up this year, is a recipe for simple Sweet Potato Fries. I LOVE sweet potatoes, and they are so good for you. This could be a kid-friendly side and maybe a new way to get sweet potatoes in those little bellies.
Easter is approaching fast, so do you know what you’ll be serving for the family dinner? We’ll be visiting family, but if I were cooking this dish is what I’d make. Roasted chicken is one of my favorite meals, but I put a spin on this dish by adding garlic and lemon. Throw in some potatoes and Brussel sprouts (or broccoli if you’re not a sprouts fan), and you’ve got a complete meal in one dish. The best thing, is that it’s Top 8 Free, and you can use regular butter if you’re not dairy allergic. If you’re avoiding soy, make sure that your dairy-free margarine is soy free as well. I use Earth Balance dairy & soy free spread. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does. If you’d like to serve bread with this meal, try my homemade bread-it’s easier than you’d think and I’m requested to bake it time after time. Happy Cooking!
