One-skillet meals in less than 20 min

Standard

Hi Friends,

So how was your week???

As promised I am back and I wanted to share with you my newest cooking secret( lol not really a secret).

You have so many options with the food you can combine that I will leave it up to you and your taste. Here are some of my recent choices:

(Paleo Friendly, gluten free, grain free)

Spaghetti squash “pizza”

I know it may all look the same to you but it’s not, just the method is the same. So let’s just get straight to business.

Less than 20 min method;)))

Decide what do you wanna eat:you know which veggies you like, do you want to add some grains or starches and what kind of protein you would like to have with it.

I like my veggies soft so most likely I will steam them first for a few minutes but you can go ahead and saute them on the pan right away  for a few minutes, then add you protein and the last part: insert into the oven then BROIL for 7-10 min.

That’s the whole secret. Everything is coming out crispy and tasty. So I use this style of cooking pretty often nowadays. I am having lots of craving for poached eggs, veggies and warm food and it’s so simple this way.

Of course you see my spaghetti squash dish was also done 20 min but I made it ready on Sunday night to eat it during the week-please  keep this is mind that you need to be sometimes prepared especially on the busy day.

So try it and let me know if you have any questions,

Love

Btw, what are you up to this weekend? Anything exciting???

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello Everybody,

It’s been ages….I know;( but since it’s Valentine’s Day I hope you forgive me.

After all I was just lying to myself that If I won’t get distracted with blogging I get more stuff done….well it didn’t really happen so I am back to blogging. My apology.

Month of January was pretty eventful for us and probably for the next few posts I will be catching up with that. Just to give you a quick overview:

I went for a very entertaining girls get away for my friend’s Bachelorette Party. We had so much fun during this weekend It was a celebration for me too since It was my Bday weekend. I treated myself with some extra stuff;)))

Then there was my friend’s wedding….It was the most beautiful weeding that I have even been too. I just simple loved it. Magda is a great organizer and she planned to the last detail. Besides they are our very close friends and I was touched by their happiness and that it finally happened. We all were waiting for this weeding for 1,5 years ( since they got engaged).

Magda&Artur115_nHer dream was to have a real Winter Wonderland Wedding and indeed her dream came true.

Other than that

Delicious Food, hot yoga, busy life, looking for a house, and winter winter winter, a real Winter here….

I have never experienced such a harsh Winter time, It’s really annoying and It’s easy to get moody, loose motivation, get depressed And I am not stop cold-literally.
