The Criteria is just this:
- Is it Simple? Even if we have a recipe that we really love, but I find I never want to make it again because it is so complicated, then it doesn't make the cut.
- Is it Healthy? This is a given. Ryan calls me an Ingredient Freak. (I think he means it as a compliment) We don't even have bad ingredients in our home so I certainly can't put them in a recipe.
- Is it Tasty? I think food no matter how healthy should taste good. I do once in a while post some really health nutty recipes that may taste a little on the too healthy side but I let you know if they do. I have found that our bodies after a while start to like that really healthy taste. I crave it more and more all the time. But my biggest compliment is when people used to the Standard American Diet (SAD) tell me how good something I make is. They don't even think that it's healthy. I aim for that with most of my recipes.
There you go now here is just a handful of some that didn't make the cut!
Well now there you have it and there are plenty more where those came from. It's kind of a slow process because, well these are the meals I serve my family they don't really want to try the same thing every night. If one isn't perfect the first time it's at least a week or more before we try it again and that's if it has a lot of potential. Sometimes it's weeks before I get back to a recipe, sometimes I just forget about it until I see the picture I took. It's really quite a process, but I want you to be confident that the recipes here really are Simple. Healthy. Tasty.
What recipe in this list would you like to see perfected soon?
