JALAPENO POPPER MAC & CHEESE by @budgetbytes

Check out @budgetbytes

Serves: 6

INGREDIENTS
12 oz. uncooked elbow macaroni
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup milk
4 oz. cream cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan
½ cup sour cream
1 (4 oz.) can sliced jalapenos
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles (mild)
¼ tsp salt
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

INSTRUCTIONS
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and then add the pasta. Let it continue to boil until it is soft (about 10 minutes).
While the pasta is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a medium sauce pot, cook the garlic in vegetable oil for about 1-2 minutes or just until soft and fragrant. Add the milk, cream cheese, and grated parmesan. Continue to stir and cook over medium heat until the cream cheese is warm and softened. Use a whisk to stir the ingredients together until smooth.
Turn the heat down to low and then whisk in the sour cream. Drain the jalapenos and green chiles and then stir into the sauce. Taste the sauce and add ¼ tsp of salt if needed.
When the pasta is finished cooking, drain it in a colander. Return the drained pasta to the pot (heat turned off), pour the sauce over top, and stir until well mixed. Sprinkle the shredded pepper jack over top and then stir in. The heat from the sauce and noodles should be enough to melt the cheese. Serve hot!

Baked Four Cheese Garlic Spaghetti Squash by @eatwell101

Check out @eatwell101
Ingredients list for the roasted spaghetti squash
* 1 large spaghetti squash
* 5 garlic cloves, minced
* 1/2 cup water
* 1 chicken bouillon cube, crumbled (a good alternative to salt that gives a fuller body to the filling)
* 1 cup heavy cream
* 1 cup of Four-Cheese Italian White Cheese Blend (Mozzarella, White Cheddar, Provolone, Asiago)
* Fresh thyme
* Fresh ground pepper (buy whole peppercorns, the flavor is 300% better when you crack them straight from the pepper mill at the last minute)
* Parsley or chives or green onions, finely chopped

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F(200°C). Grab your spaghetti squash firmly and chop off the tip and tail. Cut in half length-wise and scoop out the innards and seeds. Place both halves on a baking sheet, maintained by a small foil ring to ensure stability. Sprinkle fresh cracked pepper over each half.
2. In a large bowl, combine minced garlic, heavy cream with 1/2 cup water, crumbled bouillon cube, chives and fresh thyme. Mix well.
3. Sprinkle a first layer of grated cheese in the cavities of each squash halves. Divide the cream mixture on top of cheese in each halves, then top with additional cheese.
4. Roast in the oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the flesh of the spaghetti squash is very tender when poked with a fork. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Note: You can cut baking time by half if you’re in a hurry. Put raw spaghetti squash halves face down in a shallow dish with a bit of water. Then microwave for 8 minutes (less or more, depending on the size of the squash). The flesh will be almost cooked through. Proceed with the remaining steps and bake for only 20-25 minutes in the oven.

ASPARAGUS STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST by @iwashyoudry

Check out @iwashyoudry

Yields 4 to 6

Ingredients

3 large chicken breasts
1 tbsp lemon zest
salt and pepper
9 to 12 asparagus stalks, trimmed
3 slices provolone cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp olive oil
Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut the chicken breast in half, length-wise, leaving it intact on one side (creating a pocket to stuff). Season the inside of the chicken breast with salt and pepper and a pinch of lemon zest. Lay the provolone cheese and 3 to 4 stalks of asparagus in the center of each chicken breast and fold over, enclosing the filling.
Season the outside of the chicken breast with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
Heat a large, oven safe skillet (I use cast iron) over medium-high heat and add the 1 tbsp olive oil, swirling around to coat the bottom of the skillet. Cook the chicken top side down, for 3 to 5 minutes, until the chicken easily releases from the pan and is golden brown on top. Flip the chicken over and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes to sear the bottom side. Carefully cover the skillet with tinfoil and place in the preheated oven. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 155 degrees.
Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and let sit, covered, for about 5 minutes. The temperature of the chicken should rise to meet 160 degrees and will be super tender and juicy! Enjoy!

Add chopped sun-dried tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of olive oil, drained from sun-dried tomatoes, to a large skillet, on medium-low heat. Add chopped chicken (I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and prefer to use them, but you can use chopped chicken breast, as well), red pepper flakes, and salt over all of the ingredients in the skillet, and cook on medium heat until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
Add chopped tomatoes, chopped fresh basil leaves, fresh spinach, and chopped garlic to the skillet with chicken, cook on medium heat about 3- 5 minutes until spinach wilts just a little, and tomatoes release some of their juices. Remove from heat. Taste, and add more salt to taste, if needed. Cover with lid and keep off heat.
Cook pasta according to package instructions, until al dente. Drain, and add cooked and drained pasta to the skillet with the chicken and vegetables. Reheat on low heat, mix everything well, add more seasonings (salt and pepper), if desired. Remove from heat.
At this point, when the pasta and vegetables are off heat, you can add more high quality olive oil, which is really tasty. Or you can add more olive oil from the jar from the sun-dried tomatoes.

TERIYAKI CHICKEN WITH VEGETABLES by @eatgoodforlife

Check out @eatgoodforlife

INGREDIENTS:
2-3 lbs organic chicken breast chunks
12-16 oz organic fresh broccoli
2 garlic cloves, or ginger
4-5 large organic carrots, sliced
Pepper flakes, optional
2 Tbsp olive oil

Teriyaki sauce

2 Tbsp ginger, chopped
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup cold water
3-4 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 cup honey, or sugar

In a small bowl mix the Teriyaki sauce ingredients. If you are just making the sauce for future consumption follow this step otherwise follow the next paragraphs. In a small sauce pan, over medium to low heat, heat the sauce until thicken stirring occasionally. About 5 minutes. Let the sauce cool and store it in a glass airtight container in the refrigerator.

In a large skillet, over medium to high heat, add the olive oil. Add the chicken and carrots and cook stirring occasionally until almost tender, about 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook further for another minute.

While the chicken is cooking, place the broccoli on a safe microwave dish and microwave for 6-7 minutes. Depending on how strong your microwave is you may need less time. My microwave is not too powerful so I use 7 minutes but 3-4 minutes may be enough in yours.

Add the Teriyaki sauce from the bowl to the chicken and carrots and stir for about 1-2 minutes or until it thickens. Turn heat off and add the broccoli and pepper flakes if using. Stir to combine.

Serve over brown rice or rice noddles.

Massive Cobb Salad for the whole gang!
By @cleanfoodcrush
.
.
To make a healthier Blue Cheese Dressing, this is what I do:
1 cup Greek Yogurt
1 or 2 Tbsps unsweetened almond milk...(just add milk until it's the dressing consistency you like)
Whisk those 2 ingredients together until yogurt is a bit more "pourable"
Then add:
2-4 Tbsps all natural Blue Cheese crumbles (depending on your preference)
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp garlic salt (optional)
Sometimes I even add a few drops of Sriracha, to make Blue Cheese Sriracha Dressing😈! (Optional again)
Whisk, and add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper if desired.👌

Heat over medium high heat and top sandwiches with the remaining slices of bread, butter-side-up and cook until golden and cheese begins to melt - about 4 minutes (you can cover with a lid to speed up the melting process.)

Checkout her blog. Link in her bio @cafedelites
Serves: 4
INGREDIENTS
For The Chicken:
* 4 chicken breasts (pounded ½-inch thin)
* 2 teaspoons each of onion powder and garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
* ½ teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary*
* salt and pepper, to season
For The Sauce:
* 4 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 tablespoon minced garlic)
* 1 teaspoon fresh chopped parsley
* ½ teaspoon each of dried thyme and dried rosemary
* 1 cup milk (or half and half)*
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
* 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon water, until smooth
*
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Coat chicken breasts with the onion and garlic powders and herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper.
2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken breasts until opaque and no longer pink inside (about 5 minutes each side, depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate; set aside.
3. To the same pan or skillet, heat another 2 teaspoons of olive oil and sauté garlic, with parsley, thyme and rosemary, for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
4. Stir in milk (or cream); season with salt and pepper, to taste.
5. Bring to a boil; add the cornstarch mixture to the centre of the pan, quickly stirring, until sauce has thickened slightly. Reduce heat and simmer gently for a further minute to allow the sauce to thicken more.
6. Return chicken to the skillet. Sprinkle with extra herbs if desired. Serve immediately.

NOTES
*If you don't like Thyme or Rosemary, substitute these with Basil and Oregano, or use Tarragon.
**For a dairy free option, I find Cashew milk the best in flavour. You can also use almond milk or rice milk.
Yes, heavy cream can be substituted!
