Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

This is one of those weeks when the line-up of recipes packs so many favorites, I don’t know where to start. First off, if you’ve launched into grilling season, I highly recommend the Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken. It’s excellent. If you’re looking for something simple, check out the Tex Mex Skillet Supper. And the Granola Bar recipe is one I’ve been making for years …they always hit the spot. Enjoy!

Cilantro Lime Yogurt Grilled Chicken

Cilantro Lime Yogurt Grilled Chicken

We’re moving into grilling season, and this is one of my tippy top favorites. The yogurt marinade makes the chicken super tender and flavorful. As long as you’re firing up the grill, throw some zucchini, peppers, and eggplant on there to serve on the side.

Cheesy Tex Mex Skillet Supper

This is one of those simple meals that my kids have always loved. You can make it with ground beef, turkey, or even a meatless “meat” such as Beyond Burger. Serve as is or add a basket of warm tortillas and avocado on the side.

Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce

My daughter had a friend visiting and the two of them prepped this for dinner Friday night. It’s pleasingly light and sort of festive…especially if you set it up as a DIY summer roll bar and let everyone make their own. Tip: prep your peanut sauce and veggies ahead of time. The salad in this recipe pairs nicely with summer rolls.

Tuna Nicoise Pasta

I’ve taken the flavors of a classic Nicoise salad and turned it into a pasta that’s got your starch, protein, and veg all donein a single pan. Add a green salad (with a classic Dijon vinaigrette) and a bowl of cold cherries for dessert, and you’ve got a nourishing meal .

No-Knead Sheet Pan Pizza

Easy, No-Knead Sheet Pan Pizza

This is a favorite make-at-home pizza that I do year-round. It’s pretty unfussy, is done in a big sheet pan, and like all pizza, makes an excellent breakfast the next day (try topping it with a fried egg). This makes for a nourishing salad on the side. If you don’t feel like making your own pizza crust, pick up about 1 1/2 pounds of dough from your local market or pizza shop.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I made this recipe on repeat when my kids were little and I still crave them to this day. I often make a double batch of these using a 9X13-inch pan. I cut the bars and wrap at least half the batch in parchment paper and then store them in a resealable bag in the freezer. I like these best with peanut butter, but you can substitute any type of nut, seed, or soy nut butter.

Sugar Snap Pea Salad

This salad is so refreshing and crunchy, ideal for warm weather cooking and eating. It has few ingredients and is so darn quick to pull together.
