Whole roasted Tomatoes with garlic, onion, and fresh herbs. Simple yet robust and delicious!
Garlicky Green Beans. There really isn't much I love more than fresh Green beans sauteed with olive oil, garlic, and shallots. A delicious side for many main courses.
Quick Basil & Parmesan Tortellini. I say quick because they are fresh noodles from the grocer and cook extremely quickly. Simply boiled and combined with a light oil, shallot, and basil combination, this quick Tortellini will be delicious with the Roasted Tomatoes, no?
These recipes were part of one delicious meal that I know you'll all love!
Very simply, the only things you need aside from the beans and slaw are 2 packages of GARDEIN FISHLESS FILETS and an 8 pack of flour Tortillas.
When we purchased the mix for the salad, it came with separate packages of Chipotle Ranch Dressing and Crispy Tortilla strips. These will come in handy here!
1. Depending on how many mouths you have to feed, prepare fishless filets according to package directions.
(1 Filet per taco. 4 Tacos leaves enough for the slaw / beans to become side dish as well. 8 tacos and there's just enough slaw for all of them).
2. Assemble tacos with a drizzle of the Chipotle Ranch dressing, 1 fishless filet cut into 3 pieces, a good tong-full of the Citrusy Slaw, and a Tbsp. of the beans. Sprinkle the crispy tortilla strips over the taco and enjoy!
This delicious and simple meal if timed right, takes only 35 minutes to cook. A quick meal after a busy day is always welcome, especially when it's delicious!

Hope y'all enjoy!
I'm sure you're wondering, what's so quick about it? Pre-chopped vegetable mix! Doing the work of chopping everything up is usually a deterrent when it comes to Salad but it`s no excuse to skip your greens!
This tasty and quick slaw is really perfect for topping your tacos with! Skip the tomato and lettuce and give this tangy slaw a try! Nice and crispy, flavourful, and citrusy, the perfect condiment!
You can enjoy it on its own as well. It`s a great side to a heavily spiced dish, stands up to bold Mexican flavours, and is great with the smokiness of barbecue!
Beans really are versatile. You can enjoy them so many different ways and cater their flavour to whichever dish or style of food your are preparing.
I called these "Quick" because for this recipe I'm jazzing up a can of Pinto Beans. Tossing in all of these fresh ingredients with the can of pinto beans really brings them up a notch.
One of my biggest flaws with cooking is definitely timing. I can never seem to get the timing down when preparing a meal. Friends of mine have told me I should film myself and upload to youtube and although I would love to do that, I need to work on my organization and timing! Let's compare me creating recipes to a tornado occurring. DESTRUCTIVE AND MESSY!
This meal however, worked out perfectly! Everything was prepared at separate times which is ideal when preparing a meal.I'll be sharing with you all 2 new recipes and 1 meal idea which I hope you'll all love.

Growing up, my mother made the most delicious Apple Crisp. She must have put some magic into it because every one I've had since has not the same.
I've decided to add some fresh Cranberries to the mix because I love the sour tartiness they bring to the dish. Apples and cranberries are both fall fruits meaning they are in their peak during this time. You'll likely find that prices for apples are lowing at the Supermarket and you can find fresh cranberries more readily. These two fruits make the perfect sweet and sour combination and anything buried beneath a crispy, buttery topping is sure to be tasty!
I had the pleasure of entertaining my sister and her family yesterday and let's just say, the pan might as well of been licked clean!

This appetizer is one everyone is sure to love and it's really easy too! Freshly prepared sauce, creamy ricotta, plump and juicy grape tomatoes, and fresh basil make the perfect filling for these Italian inspired Quesadillas!
It's so fun to play with traditional dishes and give them a bit of a twist! This is also a good time to play around with ingredients and see what kind of Italian inspired combination you can come up with at home!
Head to the RECIPES tab for the recipe!
