Quick Weeknight Enchiladas
Let's face it, weekdays are brutal to prepare a nice meal. This recipe definitely takes shortcuts, but provides a nice, hearty meal that you'll love and is pretty healthy - just swing by the grocery store and pick up a rotisserie chicken (if you're close to a Publix, the Mojo Chicken is best), a can of green chiles, tortillas, non-fat Greek Yogurt (if you have none - believe, me, this is a magical solution to keep the filling deliciously moist without the fat!) and use a few spices (including Turmeric, which we should all be having more of because of its health benefits!) and veggies you'll already have at home. On the table in less than an hour, max, and no-one will ever know you didn't slave over the stove all day!

Broiled Mediterranean Shrimp
This recipe is the quickest and easiest weeknight dinner ever invented! Garlic, Oregano, Olive Oil and a little bit of lemon give these shrimp a distinct mediterranean flavor that will go well with anything else you have on hand! In this case, I tossed this with slow-roasted tomatoes and served over Farro (and with a side of steamed broccoli sprinkled with truffle salt)
Time: 30 minutes
I serve this over farro or rice, and like to toss it with some chopped tomatoes (or as pictured above, caramelized tomatoes). Enjoy!
Inspired by French cooking, it combines savory herbs with the brininess of olives and the sweetness of fruit to provide a delectable explosion in your mouth! This is a beautiful addition to your rotation for a weekend dinner, perfect for a a dinner party or a holiday get-together! After the first time I made this, we have this at least once every six weeks. However, be advised you'll need to do an overnight marinade on this one, so you'll need to plan ahead. Note - this recipe came originally from “The Silver Palate Cookbook” by Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso - but I've made my own modifications to tweak to our liking (including eliminating the sugar, as I personally prefer more savory food).
Time: Overnight Marinade; 1 + 1/2 hours cooking
