Roasted Kabocha and Chicken in Chocolate Enchilada Sauce

(Steve needs a confidence boost) Deeply satisfying dish.  For our vegan friends, skip the chicken and replace with warm spiced pinto beans and the sauce we got going here.  You’re going to love this.  Click here for printable recipe.   About Cynthia Lair Cynthia Lair's web cooking show Cookus Interruptus brings humor to healthy family eating with over 160 recipe videos.

Smoked Salmon Reuben

(Jane loses her gloves) Hands down the best comfort-food sandwich ever. The sauerkraut adds the magic. Use 100% rye if you’re going wheat-free. Pair this with Tomato Basil Soup. Mmm-good.

Mango Noodles: from the $100/week Menu

As promised, here is a star dish in our $100 a week grocery budget. I love knowing a recipe’s story, so I’ll mention that a near and dear friend made this for me back when it was one of the only dinners she could cook. She was many years away from becoming a mother, while I had just had my first baby. She served it with shredded chicken, but I include it here with crispy fried tofu – a very cost-effective protein. Sometimes we like it with sauteed shrimp. Over the years I’ve bulked it up with kale and carrot in an attempt to get more vegetables into my kids. Let... read more

Sweet Potato Lime Salmon Cakes: from the $100/week Menu

A piece of (salmon) cake to make These zesty salmon cakes are another hit in our $100 weekly grocery menu. They’re delicious served with roasted potatoes or rice, or as burgers or sandwich filling. The kids love them (although maybe it’s because they contain the word “cake”). They like to help me form the cakes into different sizes (itty bitty ones for our 2 year old, big daddy sized ones for my husband). My 7 year old brings them to school for lunch the next day. SWEET POTATO LIME SALMON CAKES What you need: 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed 2 cans wild sockeye... read more

Tempeh Tacos with Chipotle Cream

Choose your own Asian Adventure: from the $100/week Menu

Take your family to Southeast Asia for the evening Proudly presenting Asian noodle soup and salad rolls from our $100 weekly grocery challenge.  There were noodle soup shops all over Vientiane, Laos, where my husband and I met and later lived together. The shopkeepers served up massive, steaming bowls of pho (pronounced “fuh”), brimming with fragrant herbs just pulled from the earth. But being an almost-vegetarian (I eat fish and seafood), I missed out on the heavily beef based soup. Here’s a version we came up with to appeal to all preferences.... read more

Healthy Hamburger Skillet - Kid Approved

Providing your family healthy real-food meals may be an endless job, but it doesn’t have to be an expensive or time consuming one. This recipe was my reaction to the idea that “convenience” foods come pre-packaged or canned. It’s a healthy and delicious one-pan recipe that comes together in under half an hour. This is one of my kids’ favorite recipes and we make variations of it at least once a week. Its simplicity makes it appealing to moms and its fun colors and textures make it appealing to kids. The vegetables in place of noodles add some extra... read more

Chicken Cacciatore over Cabbage Noodles

My husband is Italian, so pasta dishes are a favorite at our house, but with various food allergies, we don’t eat regular pasta. I’ve had to get creative with substitutes and have found vegetable alternatives for practically every pasta. Personally, this is one of my favorites! This slow-cooker Chicken Cacciatore is served on a bed of roasted cabbage “noodles” to sneak in some extra nutrients. The flavors in roasted cabbage pair perfectly with the simple tomato sauce on the chicken, making an easy and budget friendly alternative to this popular pasta... read more
