Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

If you are looking for an easy summer lunch or dinner, you’ve come to the right place. These chicken salad lettuce wraps are super low maintenance and easy to whip together for a healthy, light meal. I either make it with leftover bbq chicken breast or if I’m lazy (hey we all have our days), I’ll grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

Mushroom Cacio e Pepe

BBQing is definitely one of my favorite ways of cooking in the summer BUT I can always make an exception for a hearty plate of pasta. Especially on these rainy days we keep having. On a recent rainy evening I was craving pasta but couldn’t decide between recreating the Cacio e Pepe I learned during my recent cooking class with a chef from Rome or something fresh and summery. What do I do when I can’t make a decision? Make two kinds of pasta of course. And thank goodness because they were both DELICIOUS. First up grab the recipe for Mushroom Cacio e Pepe.

Crispy Beef & Tofu with Noodles

It is no secret that Jamie Oliver is one of my favorite celeb chefs. I love the versatility in his recipes and cookbooks for that matter. I particularly love his Super Foods cookbook because of all the stories he tells about discovering the ingredients in the recipes. I’ve tried a few recipes from this cookbook but the crispy beef is definitely a favorite! I made a few tweaks to the recipe as I recently discovered that I like tofu – especially to add to asian dishes. It seems to soak up asian flavors well. Check out the recipe below!
