I can't say I'm the most organized cook. I go through spurts of taking a few hours on a Sunday to plan my menus for the week, but that doesn't last long. This means that I'm depending on a stocked pantry, with lots of options in the freezer.
I loved this recipe from Cooking LIght Magazine. It was given to me by my husband's coworker. The chicken is stuffed with creamy goat cheese and caramelized onions. Served with an easy pan sauce, it really was delicious, and well worth the effort to make.

My husband loved this meal, and the whole dish was under 400 calories!

Quinoa is a dieter’s dream. High in protein and fiber, it’s filling and satisfying. Even if you’re not dieting after the holidays, but like to eat light and healthy, quinoa should be on your shopping list.
I find it very sad that people order tuna sandwiches at restaurants and fast food joints, thinking they're ordering something healthy. They have no idea that what they've ordered is laden with unhealthy fat and extra calories.
Creamy sweet potato and curry add another dimension of flavor to this typical Shepherd's Pie.
Our local restaurant makes this amazing shrimp appetizer that my husband and I just love. You might have heard of it. It’s called Bang Bang Shrimp. The shrimp is breaded, deep fried, and served with a spicy sauce. Yum!
Crackers and chips are my go-to, feel good, food. I can’t keep them in the house because I’ll eat the whole package by myself.
This recipe from Real Simple Magazine was a hit with the family this Christmas dinner. I don’t know if it was the pretty Christmas colors in the dish, or the combination of ingredients, but these beans provided a nice balance for heavier foods like the stuffing and mashed potatoes.
