Work has gotten busy again, but I am still making an effort to get home in time to fix dinner. I just enjoy eating fresh, healthy meals so much more than the alternative! For this week’s WIAW post, I thought I’d share a few of the recipes I’ve tried lately.


Last week I made this Healthy Slow Cooked Tikka Masala from The Wanderlust Kitchen.

Slow Cooked Chicken Tikka Masala

As I was serving it, I thought that it looked much darker than Anetta’s pictures. Then I realized that I’d forgotten the last part of the recipe–mixing in yogurt to make a creamier sauce! My husband liked it anyway, but I will have to make it again soon to do it right.

I also made this recipe for Pasta with Chicken and Brussels Sprouts from Good Housekeeping.

Pasta with Chicken and Brussels Sprouts

It uses chicken thighs, which I don’t usually cook with, and sliced Brussels Sprouts. I thought it was delicious, but my husband didn’t like it. 🙁 Since it made so much, I gave some to my Mom and some to a friend at work, and I still had leftovers for lunch twice!

I had better luck with this chicken, asparagus and bok choy stir-fry, which I made to use the bok choy my Mom gave me from her garden.

Chicken, Asparagus and Bok Choy Stir-Fry

Would you believe it if I told you that I based this on the Runner’s World Cookbook recipe for “Chicken stir-fry with green beans and broccoli“? I am still loving that cookbook, even if I “customize” some of the recipes.  😉

I also tried a few more matcha recipes. The Iced Ginger Matcha with sparkling water was refreshing, and tasted mostly of the fresh grated ginger.

Iced Ginger Matcha

I added 1 Tbsp of matcha powder to my usual banana bread recipe. While it definitely turned the batter green, it didn’t change the taste (and that’s a good thing).

  1. I love the Runner’s World Cookbook and I make lots of recipes from it. Sometimes I alter them a little but a good place to start. The Tikka Masala is something my kids would eat too.

  3. All the food looks GREAT! Especially the tikka masala.

    I don’t typically freeze my leftovers because I don’t mind eating the same thing, day in and day out. I will just eat it for lunch and dinner until it’s gone! Hahaha.

    Lately, I’ve been cooking a ton of quinoa dishes. It never gets old!

    With 2 teenage boys in the house we don’t have nearly as many left-overs as we used to. Chris takes leftovers for lunch every day (unless he is flying) and the days I’m home I eat them for lunch, too.
    Lately I’ve been doing lots of crock pot stuff – BBQ chicken drummies, French dip….
