Asian Turkey Meatballs

Okay when I think of meatballs I usually don't think of them as having an Asian twist. Well I guess I have had like a sweet and sour meatball before BUT nothing like these. This recipe was so light and refreshing AND incredibly easy to make! Summer foods to me are all about keeping it simple and light since its so stinking hot outside.
These make a great dinner or you could totally use them as an appetizer.
The lady who came up with the recipe served hers over a bed of spiraled zucchini, which looked awesome. I however don't have a spiraler so I just had mine plain with the dipping sauce with a side of zucchini and quinoa.

Chicken and Asparagus Stir Fry

Something I love about summer is that keeping meals light and simple. This recipe is so refreshing to me. It has classic Asian ingredients that just seem to pop with freshness.
I also like cutting everything into smaller pieces because that allows the cook time to be way less, which means that my kitchen doesn't have to be super hot for a long time. Now right now asparagus in most places is not at its cheapest, usually it is best in the spring, I when I made this recipes I actually used green beans which were a great substitute.

Salmon with Nectarine Salsa

I had to get this recipe on here asap! This recipe is fantastic! Technically this is two recipes but I am going to just keep them as one because they go so well together!
I'm always a little hesitant when it comes to "fruit salsas", because for some reason in my head I think eww fruit and spice equals no. BUT this salsa is absolutely fantastic!
The salmon recipe alone is great, but, adding the salsa on top of it takes it to a whole other level of amazingness! This will be one recipe we will be having over and over this summer. It's so light and refreshing.

Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms

Sometimes the easiest of meals are ones you never really think about. I had never thought about posting a recipe for chicken with mushrooms but you never know, some people may have never thought to pair chicken and mushrooms together :)

Lentil Curry Soup

Hey all. I made this recipe last night for dinner and holy moly! This stuff is great. I love a good lentil soup and this is definitely a good one. This recipe came together pretty fast as well which makes it great for a weeknight meal. This is also a great recipe if your trying to cut out some meat. We like to try to have a meatless meal once a week so having a nice soup like this that is jam packed with lentils makes it so you don't even miss the meat because they have so much protein in them.

Garlic and Mushroom Quinoa

Wow! I apologize that it has been so long since I have posted any recipes. I got into a recipe slump and just kept making the same old things every week. This week I decided to break out some new recipes. I wanted to try out some new recipes that could be part of the Anti-Inflammatory Diet.
I seem to always have the same side dishes when I do cook those foods so I wanted to branch out a tiny bit. This time instead of making my normal plain old Basic Quinoa (which is great) I decided to throw in a couple other ingredients to jazz it up. It turned it great, and so versatile.
