Roasted Pumpkin, Brussel Sprouts and Chicken

If I’m being honest, this barely requires a recipe at all. I went with my gut and threw some ingredients on a sheet pan with one vague idea of what I wanted and ta-da: delicious autumnal themed┬ánoms for at least four meals! two 500g containers of chicken Spice mix: Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Turmeric,…

Summer Nights Pasta

I’m not a huge pasta fan. Don’t get me wrong, lasagne is life. As is baked ziti. But on a regular basis – pasta isn’t in my wheelhouse. I can think of quite a few other starches I would prefer. Honestly: why waste the carbohydrates? Here’s why, though, you’ll find me writing a post on…

Quick, Dirty Weeknight Dinner

After a long day at work, not everyone of us has the time to cook. I certainly don’t always have the will. That’s why this week I took a large pot, threw in some cauliflower rice, and pre-made greens mix (mushrooms, kale and broccoli) with some coconut oil to cook. In another pan, I cooked…

Your Weekday Chicken & Broccoli Dish

It’s no surprise that chicken and broccoli are two of my favourite foods. In fact, I’d be shocked if I didn’t at least eat one of the two every couple of days. What’s not to like? You get protein and fiber without even trying. In this “normal” dish, I thought why not throw together something…

Black Bean, Corn and Chicken Quesadillas

When it comes to making dinner for friends, I tend to opt for the easier dishes. Much as I love coming up with strange and complex recipes to worry my friends with (or to burn their oven), the basic recipes are sometimes the best. That’s why last week when I wanted to see my close…

Chicken Brussel Sprouts Lunch

Part of me doesn’t even think this recipe deserves to be called that: recipe. Chicken and brussel sprouts for lunch? That’s just a couple ingredients thrown together and voila: something nutritious and forbiddingly yummy emerges. I’ve been making bowls like this, though, for quite some time and it didn’t hit me until a couple weeks…

Stovetop Garlic-Tomato Chicken

Chicken should be hailed potentially the best meat to cook with, if you haven’t cooked meat in months. That would be my issue. Living with a vegan for the past five months has certainly opened my eyes (rather forcefully) to the great options for vegetarians and cooking. There’s nothing I’d rather do now than do…

Practically Disturbed it’s June

Today would normally be a day where I’d be preoccupied being a busy little bee at work, typing quickly away on proxy analyses and researching boring white old men and their lack of independence. Luckily, today and the rest of the week are taken up by my “Abschluss Seminar” for my fellowship program. For the…
