Main Dishes

Everything you love about chicken enchiladas... in one big bowl! I love turning classic meals into soups, it's an easy (maybe even lazy) way to make a dish that doesn't require dirtying too many pots.

Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup (and Instant Pot)

Delicious, turkey meatballs in a creamy mushroom sauce. A family-friendly dish that is so good over egg noodles or serve them over spiralized butternut squash noodles if you want to lower the carbs.

Turkey Meatball Stroganoff (Instant Pot, Slow Cooker or Stove Top)

This easy salad has all my favorite things in one – arugula, Proscuitto, shaved Parmesan and a runny egg! When you pop that egg yolk, the salad is bathed in that warm eggy goodness, salad nirvana in every bite! If you are not a fan of runny eggs, hard boiled eggs would taste just fine too!

Bacon makes everything better (in my opinion), especially in this hearty white bean soup. It's delicious, inexpensive, and easy to make and leftovers are even better the next day.

lentils are economic, easy to prepare and make enough for plenty of leftovers! I’ve partnered with Canadian Lentils for #TheSimpleLentil campaign to show people just how versatile lentils are.
