Chicken Salad in Papaya Boats

We recently took a quick trip to the Bahamas to visit Julia’s parents who are currently living there on their boat (I know, rough life!). Although we were excited forย the sunshine and relaxation, we were also pumpedย to try some fresh local food.

Whole 30 Chicken, Sweet Potato and Broccoli Stew

Along with about pretty much everyone in America, we caught the Whole 30 bug in January.

We also grilled some corn on the cob as… Continue reading Grilled Chicken with Cucumber Melon Salsa

Chicken Stuffed with Spinach, Feta, and Pine Nuts & Bacon Onion Brussel Sprouts

Tonight we made stuffed chicken and bacon brussel sprouts. Both dishes were a little bit involved, especially for our half-a-kitchen, and took a bit longer than most dinners we make during the week. In the end, it was a tasty meal (the brussel sprouts were the better part: can’t go wrong with anything that involves… Continue reading Chicken Stuffed with Spinach, Feta, and Pine Nuts & Bacon Onion Brussel Sprouts
