Last night I made dinner with Lindsay S. Nixon…..well, not entirely! But I did make the following delicious meals from her book, Everyday Happy Herbivore. I love this book because it is simple and easy to follow. You’re not going to be slaving away for 4 – 6 hours over the stove! Lindsay lets you know how much time each recipe takes, whether it is Quick, Fat-Free, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, One-Pot Meal, how much it will cost you, and time saver tips on what to make ahead! I’m a huge fan of ALL her books! Last night I made Bella Tacos. Here’s the gorgeous portobello mushrooms and other ingredients, as I was doing the prep work.
This was a super easy dish to prepare! As Lindsay writes in her book, “These tacos come together in a flash, making it perfect for weeknight meals.” (p.91 of Everyday Happy Herbivore)
I started out with the Pear & Arugula Salad. The dressing was a bit tart, so I need to remember to add extra drops of Agave Nectar to it. It also contains added quinoa. This salad could simply be called, “Sweet & Spicy”. Tasty!
Last night, I also baked Lemon Jam Biscuits for this mornings breakfast. (The recipe is also found in the book!) These biscuits were very simple to make, yet tasty as well! Here they are with homemade raspberry jam – a sweet gift from a friend!
With all this cooking and baking going on, I’m starting to feel a bit like a 1950s housewife….and frankly, I’ve been enjoying it! “Beam me up, Scotty!”
