Brace yourselves … I’m offering up a savory dish today! Shocking I know, since I’m known more for my love of baking and sweets, but let’s be honest, cookies, cakes and tarts a diet does not make! As much as I wish they did! Still, I was feeling inspired after seeing these instant pot frozen pork chops recipes. These Teriyaki Pork Chops with Blueberry Relish are yummy, quick and easy – great for a weekday dinner. The sweetness of the blueberries balance the heat of the Serrano chilies perfectly and since it’s a lean and healthy meal, you can justify a cookie, slice of cake or scoop of ice cream for dessert 😉
While this recipe is super simple, there is something about pairing fruit with a protein that instantly elevates the meal. Quite honestly I was being over run with blueberries and wanted to switch things up so I thought I would try my hand at something savory. Enjoy!
Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE pizza – good pizza – Neapolitan style pizza. In fact, I love pizza so much that I have it almost every week!
However, since doing my diet reset a few weeks ago, I’ve been cautious of the amount of wheat and dairy I’m consuming. I’ve found that I feel better when I’m eating a mostly paleo diet – I have more energy, my thinking is clearer and sharper, and I’m happier. So I figured I would reduce my pizza consumption to once every couple weeks 😉 That was until I discovered this cauliflower crust pizza recipe! I’ve tried similar recipes in the past with uninspiring results, but this one has a magical step that makes all the difference (I’ll give you a hint, it involves a cheesecloth). It is simply amazing! A great substitute for my regular Napoli pizza!
Dinner tonight brings together two things I absolutely love – one pot meals and Nigella Lawson. I simply adore meals that can be prepared in one pot and if that pot is a slow cooker, as is the case for this Moroccan Chicken Stew, even better. And what’s not to love about Nigella Lawson, she is vivacious, classy, and gives us all permission to find joy and pleasure in our food. Her new book, Simply Nigella, is a beautiful compilation of uncomplicated recipes that are relaxed, but deeply satisfying.
