  • Weeknight (30 minute) Thai Chicken Meatball Khao Soi. I am way too excited about this recipe. It's everything good --> creamy curried coconut broth + crispy gingery meatballs + egg noodles...and all the toppings (don't be shy with them). Everything all together? It. Is. The. BEST. It's easy. It's healthy. And perfect for this blizzard happening currently outside. Shared the recipe on HBH today (link in profile) and making this on stories real soon :) #hbhhealthyjanuary
  • Creamy (garlic butter) Sun-Dried Tomato Tuscan Chicken and Orzo. Just like your favorite Italian chicken and pasta dinner, but all made in one skillet. It's everyone's favorite --> creamy, a little garlicky, lemony and best served with crusty bread for scooping up that cream sauce. Maybe add some wine too :) ENJOY. ... ... 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil 1 pound chicken breasts 1 tsp each dried oregano + paprika red pepper flakes kosher salt and black pepper 2 tbs butter 1 medium shallot, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated 1 cup dry orzo pasta 1/3 cup dry white wine 1 cup heavy cream (or canned coconut milk) 2 tsp Dijon mustard 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese 2 cups fresh baby spinach 1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, oil drained juice of 1 lemon .. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet set over medium-high heat. Rub the chicken with olive oil, the oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Sear on both sides until golden, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet. Add the butter and shallot, cooking 3 minutes. Add the garlic and orzo, cooking until lightly golden, 2-3 minutes. Add the wine and de-glaze the pan. Add 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, cook 3-5 minutes, then add the cream, mustard, parmesan, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes, stirring until the spinach has wilted. Slide the chicken and any juices left on the plate back into the skillet. Transfer to the oven and bake at 425, uncovered for 10-15 minutes Serve the chicken topped with lemon juice. #recipevideo #easyrecipes
  • (simplest) Whipped Ricotta Toast with lemon thyme honey --> olive oil toasted sourdough bread (favorite) + creamy whipped ricotta (nothing is better) + caramelized oranges (sooo good) + salty prosciutto (not needed, but especially delicious + honey infused with lemon and thyme. Simple, but yet, so much going on. Takes 15 minutes to make...and it's good any time of the day. Recipe on the blog - linked in profile. #hbhhealthyjanuary #toast #f52grams
  • Creamy Tuscan Pesto and Burrata Pasta...with artichokes, white beans, lemon, and even some greens too. Because when Monday feels more like Sunday, why not make the biggest pot of creamy pasta? Trust me, it's a good idea. Added bonus? This is all made in one pot, start to finish. So it's easy + creamy and delicious too. Recipe on the blog today - linked in profile. What's everyone making?  #f52grams #burrata #hbhhealthyjanuary
