Who has you always have to eat fajitas in a tortilla? I know, those carbs are delicious. But take my word for it – having your fajita straight out of the skillet is a HIGHLY underestimated option that you should no longer ignore.

The wonderful and bold flavors of the chicken and vegetables can come alive instead of being overwhelmed by the doughy flavor of a tortilla.

Really, the flavor that you will want to taste in this amazing Chicken Fajita Skillet is the chicken and the veggies. The chicken is marinated in lime juice and spices – including cumin and chili powder.

For those hot summer days, you need a light and fresh meal that’s quick and easy to put together. It needs to be refreshing and simple, something that picks you up since it’s cool and delicious and easy to put together.

The last thing you need to do is to spend an hour (or more) in the kitchen slaving away over a hot stove or heating the whole house up with the oven.

This Grilled Chicken Spinach and Strawberry Salad is perfect. It’s light and refreshing, easy to put together and packed with flavor. Creamy and tangy goat cheese that is perfectly paired with sweet strawberries.

Tender grilled chicken adds the perfect amount of lean protein and the spinach adds a dose of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Everything is topped with a bold and creamy balsamic dressing.

Having grilled chicken to add to salads is something that I really like to do in the summer. Summer is a perfect time to have lots of grilled meals. It’s perfect weather for grilling, it’s easy and simple, delicious and you don’t have to heat up the house to make supper. When you’re grilling one meal, it’s easy to toss on a couple of chicken breasts for lunch over the next couple of days. That way, you’ve got them ready to go.

Once the chicken is grilled, it’s super easy to put this salad together. Just combine the spinach, strawberries, chicken and cheese. Then drizzle on the dressing. If this dressing is one you like and use quite a bit, it’s easy to make up a couple of batches and keep it in the fridge. You can use a blender bottle (the ones you use for protein shakes that have the little round whisk in them) and then just keep it in the fridge. Then just shake it back up and use it on your salad.

Balsamic dressing is one of my favorites. The dark and rich balsamic flavor is perfect to add a bold flavor to salads. Use a little heart healthy olive oil and a little honey to take the edge off the vinegar and you’ve got a delicious dressing that’s simple, healthy and point friendly. I love that it doesn’t have all the added colors, flavors and sweeteners of the store-bought varieties.

Goat cheese is DIVINE in this salad. It’s creamy and bold in flavor, but is also a little tangy without being too overwhelming. Some stronger cheeses can be a bit much in a salad, so you really have to choose your cheese carefully. I’ve had blue cheese that’s amazingly good, and I’ve had blue cheese that you could smell and taste from the other side of the room. But goat cheese is a milder cheese but really adds to the flavor of the salad.

If I have a few extra Points to spare, I’ll add a handful of lightly candied walnuts or a few slivered almonds to add a little more crunch to the salad.

This salad is perfect for lunch; you can pair it with a piece of fruit or a few crackers or chips if you like.

It’s such an easy salad with just a few ingredients. It’s perfect for lunch, a side salad or even Sunday brunch! It’s low in points but has all the flavors of decadence that you can indulge in without the guilt!

When it comes to summer time, there are always a few things that you can find in abundance that are so much better than they are the rest of the year. Tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers are some of those things. Cucumber salad is a perfect side dish to have during these summer months.

Thai Cucumber Salad is light and refreshing. It’s so easy to prepare but it’s a delightful salad that’s a perfect complement to your favorite Asian meal. It’s simple and easy with just a few ingredients. But the flavors, oh the flavors, they’re vibrant and amazing.

It doesn’t matter what the weather is like, when I’m craving some rich and creamy comfort food, nothing else will do. It’s been in the 90s this week, here in Orange Country, CA, but this creamy and comforting Chicken and Broccoli Noodle Casserole is the only thing that I’ve wanted to make.

Not even the heat wave can keep me from my comfort food.

And this week, my craving has been for a rich, decadent and filling casserole. One that has it all – meat, veggies and carbs all rolled into one dish.

It’s nearing the end of June, and I don’t know about you, but with these hot and busy summer days, I don’t feel like cooking much. I’ve been making Weight Watcher recipes that are fast, easy and delicious but don’t require me to put forth a lot of effort in the kitchen.

Trust me when I tell you that this Balsamic Roasted Chicken and Vegetables recipe is the perfect dish for this kind of situation. It’s super-fast and easy, tastes amazing and my whole family loves it!! It’s a win-win.

There is absolutely nothing like these Moroccan Beef and Lamb meatballs. Seriously, they take amazing to a whole new level. They are tender, succulent, full of spices and a complete game changer when it comes to meatballs.

This recipe is an absolute favorite in our house. And I’m not exaggerating. Every time I make a batch, I triple the recipe and freeze some. They’re perfect to whip out for a quick meal and they’re so tasty that it’s perfect having some to reheat quickly.

It’s almost time for summer break and we’re anxiously counting down the last few days until summer! And the best part of summer is lazy days by the pool and very little effort put forth in the kitchen. That means I want recipes that are simple, easy, light and healthy and, of course, amazingly delicious.

Summer Green Bean Salad is perfect. It’s light and healthy, but simple and easy and oh-so-delicious. Bright and fresh green beans with juicy tomatoes, crisp onions and a tangy lemon garlic dressing that is incredibly tasty.

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer. If you’ve never had Balela Salad – you need to try it. But if you’ve never had it, or heard of it, let me let you in on what it is. Balela is a Middle-Eastern garbanzo bean and black bean salad that is dressed with a tangy, herbed vinaigrette.

Balela is something that I typically make anytime I need to cook for vegans or vegetarians. It’s perfect since it’s filled the beans and fresh produce. The dressing is simple but incredibly delicious – just a tangy vinaigrette that’s seasoned with parsley and mint.

This Memorial Day Weekend and you’re probably on the lookout for some great Weight Watchers potluck recipes. You don’t have to look any further than this amazing Watermelon Blueberry Mint Salad with Feta.

Don’t be tempted to use the traditional fruit tray, this is a much better option for this Memorial Day, or any other summer day. This salad is wonderfully refreshing. It’s both sweet and savory. It’s incredibly easy to prepare, coming together in about 15 minutes.

The fruit is what really gives this salad an amazing base. Watermelon is a sweet and simple treat that is juicy and delicious. It hits the sweet spot of satisfying your sweet tooth without adding lots of added and unhealthy sugars to your day. It’s low in points and perfect for the base of this salad.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not usually one to think about vegetables when I’m ordering Chinese takeout. Chinese takeout is something that I like to indulge in and how can I do that and think about being healthy at the same time?

There is one exception to that – Chinese-style Garlic Green Beans. Wow are they good. The flavor is amazing. Who knew that green beans could taste so incredibly good?!

Don’t get me wrong – take out is a fabulous thing. There are those nights when you are just not feeling like cooking, it’s hot, you’re tired and busy and it just isn’t happening. We all have our favorite take out spots.

But there’s also been more than a few nights when I’ve decided to whip up my simple and easy Mongolian Beef instead of ordering it from my local Chinese restaurant. It only requires a handful of ingredients that I usually have on hand, it’s simple, healthy and DELICIOUS!

I don’t know about you, but I’m running out of steam. It’s the last few weeks of the school year, and I’m done (so are the kids and the teachers!).

What that really means is that I need fast and easy weeknight dinners that are tasty, everyone likes, healthy and Weight Watchers friendly. No biggie.

And what’s even better than all the above requirements? Something that doesn’t make a lot of dishes! This One Pan Crispy Parmesan Chicken is absolutely delightful. You can have a home cooked meal without a lot of effort.
