Sheet Pan Eggplant Parmesan

Happy Tuesday! If you have been following along for the past few weeks, you know I have been having a moment with sheet pan dinners. During the weekdays, I am all about these quick and easy meals. Especially when they have an easier and quicker clean up! I gave this sheet pan eggplant Parmesan a try and it was such a hit, I’m making it again for dinner tonight!

Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo

Healthy and quick weeknight dinners are always on my mind, but especially at the start of fall. As I mentioned with last week’s Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas, I think it’s because I’m preparing for dinner without a grill in the colder months which forces me to come up with quick dinners indoors. This Cauliflower Fettuccine Alfredo is a spin on the traditional Fettuccine Alfredo but with a fraction of the calories. A relatively guilt-free dinner, you will find yourself reaching for seconds without feeling bad about it!

Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas

Post-Labor Day and the unofficial welcoming of fall has arrived. Fall is my favorite season for many reasons but two of the top can be broken down into two categories: food and fashion. Imagine that? As much as I love grilling during the summer, I am looking forward to dinners in the crockpot and oven. When it comes to baking dinner in the oven, I always try to come up with recipes that have quick bake times or are at least easy to put together. If they are quick to put together and have a longer bake time, at least you can accomplish tasks while dinner bakes. I have shared our love for Mexican food with you before but these sheet pan chicken fajitas take quick weeknight dinners to a whole new level.

Weeknight Summer Dinner with al fresco

As summer is quickly coming to an end, one of the things I will miss most about the warmer temperatures is quick weeknight dinners on the grill. The grill has become our go-to the past few months. You can’t beat how much of a time saver it is! Once a week, we reach for one of our favorite summer meals on the grill, al fresco chicken sausage. I always love coming up with new ways to serve this “better for you” sausage, but this sweet Italian style has become our favorite. Today, I am sharing the perfect quick weeknight summer dinner with al fresco.

Easy Weeknight Dinner: Cheeseburger Burritos

No matter the season, I am always on a quest for quick weeknight dinners. Summer recipes have been a little easier since we can use the grill, but that isn’t an option for every night. We were planning to have burgers on the grill one day last week until a storm hit. Instead of grilling in the rain, I came up with this easy weeknight dinner: cheeseburger burritos.

Mac & Cheese Spaghetti Squash

Mac & Cheese Spaghetti Squash Recipe @rachmccarthy7
My love for comfort food {mac and cheese in particular} runs deep. And as much as I love this “not so good for you food” and would be fine eating it most days of the week, that can’t actually happen in reality. Instead, I like to come up with ways to make comfort food not so guilty. I’ve tried cauliflower mac and cheese {recipe HERE} and zucchini mac and cheese {recipe HERE} so I figured it was time to try another vegetable: spaghetti squash.

Easy Crockpot Dinner: Pesto Chicken

Crockpot Pesto Chicken Recipe @rachmccarthy7
Happy Tuesday! Gearing up for a crazy week at my 9-5 job so I thought this quick, weeknight dinner would be a good recipe to share this week. I’m always trying to come up with quick and healthy dinners for the work week and as I have mentioned before, the crockpot is my best friend when it comes to this. I made this a few weeks ago for dinner and we just loved it: only four ingredients for a complete meal, quick and easy and the chicken came out super tender. I’m not the biggest fan of chicken, but it’s tolerable for me in the crockpot. This chicken was delicious and I ate every bite! Totally unusual for me, so this weeknight dinner is highly approved!

Mexican Chicken Burrito Bowls

After reading through the reader surveys {thank you again for filling those out!} there was definitely a trend when it came to food posts: make ahead lunches and quick dinners were the clear winners. I can’t say that I’m too surprised about this because this is the stuff I’m always trying to come up with too! In this spirit, I came up with a Mexican Chicken Burrito Bowl that is not only a make ahead lunch, but also the perfect crockpot dinner!Read More
