One Skillet Baked Cauliflower Gnocchi

Posted by on Jan 23, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on One Skillet Baked Cauliflower Gnocchi

After you all loved our last one-skillet recipe (One Skillet Lemon Chicken with Rice), we couldn’t help but whip up another one! This one is filled with delicious, yet simple, ingredients that bring out rich flavors. It is also the perfect meal to enjoy on a cozy night in, and guilt-free! Plus, it is a great way to add extra veggies into your diet through the cauliflower gnocchi, spinach, onions, and of course…our veggie-packed Mama Jess Garden Organic Pasta Sauce. The guilt-free part of this recipe is the cauliflower gnocchi, which is famously found at Trader Joe’s. The trick when cooking it, though, is to NOT follow the instructions on the bag. If...

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Posted by on Jan 16, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Sweet and Sour Chicken

When I tasted this recipe for the first time, I felt like I had cracked open the portal into another world of recipe possibilities: homemade Chinese takeout. While I love cooking, I also really love convenience and it’s easier to dial the local takeout place and order delivery. Plus, I actually have never ventured into the realm of making Asian inspired dishes, since I know it is not my strong point. Both of these mindsets have changed. Did you know that ketchup is the base for sweet and sour sauce? It is such a great excuse to whip out my Mama Jess Garden Organic Ketchup and enjoy some extra veggies snuck into this meal! This recipe, while it is not the...

Roasted Veggie Winter Salad

Posted by on Jan 9, 2020 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Roasted Veggie Winter Salad

In the spirit of continuing to succeed at our New Year’s Resolutions, I’ve “developed” a winter salad recipe for you! When I say “develope” I mean “I put together two healthy things that I loved and added a dressing on top, making it completely irresistible” so I decided to share it with you all. I hope you are prepared for this to become your go-to obsession for the next week. What I love about this recipe: it is simple to make (just roast and go), packed with veggies (literally the recipe calls for salt, olive oil, veggies, cheese (optional) and an oily/herby dressing on top. That’s it.), plus it is a great thing...

Roasted Cauliflower Parmesan

Posted by on Jan 2, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Roasted Cauliflower Parmesan

Happy 2020! We know a lot of the New Year’s Resolutions out there include incorporating healthier foods into your diets, cutting down on sugar and carbs, and possibly even cooking more dinners at home. So today, we thought we would bring you a recipe that covers all of those: Roasted Cauliflower Parmesan. We love it because: it fills you up like chicken parmesan would (but with a delicious veggie substitute!), it is not breaded (less carbs!), and it is topped with our Mama Jess Garden Organic Pasta Sauce (no added sugars!). Plus, you can make this no-hassle meal in less than an hour (with minimal cleanup!). We recommend serving it with cauliflower gnocchi or even...

One Skillet Lemon Chicken with Rice

Posted by on Dec 27, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on One Skillet Lemon Chicken with Rice

It’s been a crazy week. Not only because of the holidays but with Christmas being on a Wednesday, I feel like my schedule is getting thrown off for two and a half weeks! Today is a Friday, but it feels like a Monday because I spent yesterday cooking for the week, which I usually do on Sunday… The good news about spending yesterday cooking for the week, though, is I get to bring you this delicious one-skillet dinner: Lemon Chicken and Rice. This has actually been a go-to recipe of mine for a while, but I have been refining it (more lemon, subbing olive oil for the butter, and adding spinach). Today, I finally feel like it has been refined enough to share it with...
