Mediterranean Cod and Hash Browns

Mediterranean Cod and Hash Browns

I was going to wait until I made this dish again and actually got some decent photos in daylight before posting the recipe. But I was so impressed by its simplicity and great flavor, that I was too eager to wait. So here it goes …  Got a skillet? Got 30 to 45 minutes? I’m pretty darn sure you do and as such you’ve got no excuse not to try this healthy, flavorful meal on any given weeknight.

Beef Stir Fry, a Quick and Healthy Weeknight Meal

Beef Stir Fry, a Quick and Healthy Weeknight Meal

I love tyropita (Greek cheese pie) no matter what type. All that cheesy, gooey goodness tucked away in flaky phyllo gets me every time. And though there are a few well known tyropita basics in Greek cuisine, the possibilities are truly endless. There’s the classic Feta cheese tyropita; then there is the “cut a few corners and still get a delicious tyropita“; and there is even the “throw anything you’d like in,” i.e. artichokes to get an Agginarotyropita instead.

Chicken and Orzo Tetrazzini

Chicken and Orzo Tetrazzini

I took out some chicken earlier in the day to use for dinner and after a quick glance over our refrigerator shelves and pantry (mushrooms (check),  fresh thyme (check), peas (check), cream (check), orzo (check)) I decided something along the lines of chicken tetrazzini was in order.  So, a skillet, two saucepans and a pot later this afternoon I was placing a baking dish brimming with creamy goodness in the oven.

Oatmeal Cranberry Bars

Oatmeal Cranberry Bars

With both kids in school now, baking these days needs to be simple and quick … just like my posts need to be concise and to the point. You see, homework, lunchbox prep, dinner and making sure uniforms are cleaned and pressed take up the better part of my afternoons nowadays. So here it goes: these Oatmeal Cranberry Bars  are really quite healthy.
