My Go-To Meals

{If only I looked this adorable while cooking}
With both Matt and I working full-time it’s sometimes difficult to come home in the evenings and prepare a healthy and delicious meal. There have been way too many times when we have no idea what to cook and end up ordering take out. We’ve finally established a routine with meal planing and I wanted to share a few of my favorite go-to recipes that aren’t too time consuming, are easy to pair with a quick green veggie, and are totally doable after a long work day.
+ Salmon Cakes  – Literally so simple and delicious.
+ Spaghetti Squash with Chicken Sausage, Parmesan, and Pine Nuts -Best in the Fall when spaghetti squash is in season. 
+ Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Thighs – Such an amazing blend of flavors.
+ Shrimp and Grits with Kale and Crispy Prosciutto – I’m not Southern but I love shrimp and grits — this recipe is incredible. {Pretty much all of Natalie’s recipes are.}
+ Lemon Garlic Spaghetti – So easy and so gourmet tasting.
What are your go-to meals? I’d love to try some new ones!

  1. I love that photo. Wish I looked like that in my kitchen too:)
    Lemon garlic wheat pasta sounds delish.
    I make a healthy mushroom Bolognese often and then just make hubby some meat on the side. Also, fish tacos is a go-to for us.

    How are you settling into your new flat? Can’t wait to see pics, my friend.

  2. Love these recipes. My go to meals are:
    – Mushroom and Swiss turkey burgers
    – Shrimp tacos
    – Salads (pretty much any kind)

    I will have to try those salmon cakes!

  3. Hahaha if only I looked half as good as that cooking too! My husband and I struggle with the same thing, that lemon garlic spaghetti sounds delicious – I’ll definitely be giving that a try!
