This is my very favorite lentil soup. It's so favorful!!  I used to make a version of this "Pre-Swank", but with regular sausage. I was newly married and it was cheap, easy to make and delicious. I'm telling you,  this is even better!!!  I used to use canned tomatoes or tomato sauce. I happened to have some leftover marinara in the fridge so I just threw it in.  It actually gave it something a little extra.  Ingredients  1 TBLSP Olive Oil 1 small Onion, diced 1 Carrot, diced 1 Stalk Celery, diced  1 small Red Pepper, diced 1 clove Garlic, minced 1/2 lb ..read more

This is an easy and quick soup made even easier with frozen wontons. I used the Bibigo chicken and veggie mini wontons, but you can use any Swank friendly wonton you'd like.

This is my new favorite stir fry. You could really use any protein and and veggie. I just happened to have string beans in the fridge and my protein of choice is always chicken breast if you couldn't tell already. I used the garlic sauce recipe from Just a Pinch https://www.justapinch.com/recipes/sauce-spread/marinade/chinese-garlic-sauce.html I subbed chili crisp for the oil to give it a hint of heat and color and I also added a little dark soy sauce for color as well. This sauce is an umami bomb as is, but that chili crisp really takes it over the top! You can find it in Asian market ..read more

This flavorful meat sauce is great over pasta or as part of a lasagna with fat free or Vegan cheeses. You may notice that there is no added salt in this recipe. That's because there is salt in the sausage seasoning. If you are using another brand or making your own, salt if needed.  1 & 1/2 pounds ground Chicken breast (Note 1) 2 TBLSP Italian seasoning  (Note 2) 1 tsp ground Fennel seed, optional (Note 3) 1 medium yellow Onion, finely diced 4 cloves Garlic, minced 2 Shallots, finely diced 2 (6 ounce) cans Tomato paste 1 (28 ounce) can crushed Tomatoes 1 (14 ounce) can f ..read more

My Easiest Chili Ever

Not only is this the easiest Chili I've ever made, it has also become my favorite. You can throw in pretty much any veggie that you want to use up so it's extremely tweak-able. I just happened to have a red pepper and some mushrooms. If you want to make it vegetarian/vegan you can do that too. Just swap the ground chicken for more veggies and swap the chicken broth for veggie broth. When I make this, I just use whatever broth I have in the fridge anyway. You can also use whatever bean you have on hand. Oh, and you don't even need to rinse them! Not only is this easy, but you probably have e ..read more
