CrockPot: Shredded Buffalo Chicken

Not much to say here except if you love a good kick to your meals, this is the easiest thing to make and then integrate into almost anything you’re eating. So let’s go ahead and get started and stop wasting time with exposition about how easy it is… Ingredients:  Buffalo sauce Barbecue sauce (optional) Dash…

Cauliflower Nuggets

You’ve likely seen cauliflower nuggets on Pinterest. It’s a novel idea. Honestly, for being what they are, cauliflower are incredibly versatile. For example, one of my favorite ways to prepare it is as a low-carb garlic mash (replacing garlic mashed potatoes, recipe to come!). I’ve seen different variations of cauliflower nuggets online, and in my…

Chicken Parmesan vs Zucchini Parmesan

One of my husband’s favorite dishes, of all time, is chicken parmesan. I still remember when he told me that, and I made the meal for him for the first time. I am happy to report that he loved my chicken parmesan, and the more comfortable I’ve gotten over the years with cooking, the better…

Taco Tuesday: Colorful Taco Bowl

I love to add splashes of color to my food – food is art, after all. This recipe for a vegetarian taco bowl is full of super foods, flavor and texture and multiple layers of fresh goodness. The other night my husband wanted tacos. Trying to determine how I could spin a vegetarian version of…

French’s Fried Onion Chicken

Prep Time: 10-15 minutes Cook Time: 32-35 minutes Notables: Chicken and eggs, not vegetarian/vegan. Yields: 6 pieces of chicken Serves: 3-6 people   My favorite thing to make for Tripp and I on dinners where either I’m cooking mainly for him – or I’m not picky about my veggie diet – is baked chicken.

Yogurt Six Ways

Yogurt is one of my favorite sources of protein in the morning. Here at Thyme & Again, I’ve shown my quick and easy Overnight Oats, but I also love to use yogurt as a side dish, a component to dessert, a topping and a dip. So, here are some of my favorite (and incredibly easy) yogurt-y…

Grains, Beans and a Splash of Greens

Red quinoa, white quinoa, white rice, black beans and dark red kidney beans – served on a plate of greens. A good key to meal prepping vegetarian and vegan recipes is making sure that whatever you make ahead of time is versatile. One of the easiest – with fiber, carbs and protein for energy and…

CrockPot Chicken and Rice

Hey everyone. I am back from vacation – you can see some pics about that here: https://herestothegoldendays.blogspot.com/2018/02/cruisin.html We had a great time, and luckily we were smart enough to use up our groceries and scrub down the apartment before we left. That meant that we came home to a clean place, but it also meant that…

Stuffed Crescent Rolls – Meat and/or Veggie

Sometimes I actually use my brain, and I make a meal for dinner that works both for my vegetarian dietary needs and my husband’s meat needs. Sometimes. The other night I managed to do that perfectly, though. We’re talking stuffed crescent rolls. I made both a version that was mushrooms and cheese for myself, as…

Ultimate Turkey Meatballs

Mmm, look at that raw meat. Isn’t it just so gross and squishy? Okay, I’m done. While I do maintain a pretty veggie-based/pescetarian diet, I haven’t always been that way. And I can cook some meat recipes that are great. Because this is still a food blog, I’ll likely share those recipes occasionally. Now is…
