Slow cooker beef stew

It’s that time of year to bring out the slow cooker more often and serve up warm comfort foods.  This beef stew recipe is a great dinner choice!  

It’s a delicious and hearty meal that is quick to put together and loaded with beef, potatoes and fresh vegetables.

Hungry Girl's Healthy Cheeseburger Mini Meatloaves Recipe

New dinner idea!  These mini meatloaves were easy to make and full of flavor.  I like to follow Hungry Girl on social media and try some of her recipes.  I served this dinner with boiled potatoes and sliced tomatoes and peppers.  Kid approved too!

Chicken Waldorf Salad

I think this is my new favorite lunch!!  It’s fresh, healthy and delicious! 

I ran across a BeachBody nutrition guide last week and I’m so happy that I found it.  There are several great recipes in the little book that I am anxious to try.  

This simple recipe is cooked chicken breasts, apples, walnuts and grapes and topped with a citrus vinaigrette.  A little dressing goes a long way, you only need 1T per serving.  

Also kid approved but w/o the dressing.  Enjoy!

Chicken Stir Fry

This is one of my favorite recipes that a nutritionist gave me a few years ago.  It’s very fresh, simple to make and delicious! 

Cook chicken in broth- 3oz per serving.  In olive oil, cook red and green peppers and onion.  (Optional- add broccoli and mushrooms). Add diced chicken and pineapple chunks into vegetables and cook 5 minutes longer.  Serve stir fry with sliced tomatoes.  

Chicken and Noodles

It doesn’t feel like the end of December but you can’t go wrong with a comforting crock pot meal, even despite the sunny and warmer days!

This has been cooking all day and I can’t wait to try it!  I made a few changes to lighten it up a little….use less butter and add a bag of mixed veggies with the noodles.

Update:  This recipe was so thick that it really needs extra chicken broth to thin it out at the end.  The cooking time needs adjusted also…less time is better.  Tonight for leftovers, I made a deep dish pie crust and then filled it with the noodles and chicken, sorta like a pot pie.  Something is still missing though…..maybe a little onion or some seasonings would be nice.  ?
