Lemongrass Pork Chops

Lemongrass Pork Chops

These lemongrass pork chops are a less-processed version of a Wegmans recipe. The original recipe used a lemongrass paste full of fillers - this is a little cleaner! This healthy recipe is full of protein, vegetables, probiotics, and amazing Asian flavors. It's a perfect summer recipe to try on the grill, or make indoors on the stove! You can use bone-in or boneless chops - I just happened to have boneless on hand! Make sure to adjust your cooking times accordingly :)

Pesto Chicken & Peach Salad

Pesto Chicken & Peach Salad

A friend showed me this salad last year and I originally thought it was gonna be SO WEIRD. Peach and pesto? Those didn't seem to go together to me. But I made it and OH MY GOODNESS, was it amazing. This is such a wonderful summer salad - the chicken thighs are tender and delicious and the fresh summer peaches bring such a nice brightness of flavor. Topped simply with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, this is a quick salad that is perfect for a fast & healthy weeknight meal!

Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken

Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken

When Panera released their Green Goddess Cobb Salad with Chicken in 2016, I thought it was the most delicious thing in the world. Avocado, pickled onion, BACON... this salad really had it all. Plus it was FULL of protein! And I was obsessed with the dressing. I really wanted to recreate this at home. The summer after we moved in to our new house, my husband and I were having out-of-town family over to visit and see it - this would be the perfect opportunity to try. I made a big bowl of my own copycat Panera version for our family barbecue. It was a hit! I know this will be a hit for you, too.
