EASY CHICKEN PAILLARD

Confession: I have minor addiction to capers. If your kids don’t like them, just brush them off and this chicken will still be plenty delicious. It’s all done in a skillet in no time at all. I like to serve chicken paillard with a simple green salad and a vinaigrette, along some type of cooked whole grain or little roasted potatoes. 

 

PASTA WITH CREAMY BEET SAUCE, WALNUTS AND PARMESAN

pasta with beet sauce

This shockingly pink pasta is thanks to a combination of tender beets and ricotta blended into a creamy sauce. You honestly don’t have to be madly in love with beets to love this pasta. The method is simple and the results, delicious. Tip: get it on the table as soon and you toss the sauce with the pasta and dig in.

ROASTED VEGETABLES WITH LEMON TAHINI DRESSING

Lemon Tahini Dressing with Root Vegetables

Roast a big variety of root vegetables until tender and add chick peas at the tail end for protein and heft. While that’s happening, you can whisk together the tangy tahini dressing to drizzle over the top. I often serve this with warm whole-grain pita and Greek yogurt on the side. It’s a popular recipe in our house and the kids are its number one fans. 

HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE SYRUP FOR HOT COCOA OR COLD MILK

Make a batch of this to store in the fridge and pull out when a cup of cocoa or glass of chocolate milk is called for.

WHOLE-GRAIN SCONES WITH COCONUT, DATES, AND WALNUTS 
Healthy Whole Grain Scones

The Irish in me loves a good scone, and with St. Patty’s Day just around the corner, this is a good time to get baking. This recipe is hardly traditional, but is hands-down a personal favorite. Tip: don’t overwork the dough. It will make your scones tough.
