Pork Tenderloin

This marinated pork tenderloin recipe is great on the BBQ or in the oven. Pair it with the vegetable quinoa salad, potato latkes or pierogies with apples and a green vegetable.

Pork, Apples and Potato Latkes

This meal is great served with green beans or asparagus and sour cream is optional.  You will need to purchase a cheesecloth to strain your grated potatoes this is the key for the latkes to stay together.

Pantry Chili

Most of these ingredients you can find in a well stocked pantry. Try with these beans or a mixture of your favourite. Change it up by letting your kids add their own toppings like: grated cheese, chopped fresh cilantro, guacamole or sour cream.

Kung Pao Chicken

This recipe is a success story. Votes from all families are 7/10 or higher. For those with picky eaters start with the chicken plain, vegetables raw and rice on the side then introduce the sauce. One day soon they will gobble it all up!

General Tso Chicken

Our neighbours love the sauce from the General Tso Chicken so much they double it whenever making this recipe.

Chicken Fried Rice

This recipe is much healthier than a take-out option. Pack it with vegetables you happen to have in your fridge of freezer. Any protein will work – leftover chicken, pork, steak, shrimp or even tofu. Here I have suggested some ingredient options but this recipe is very flexible.  You can even stir fry leftover quinoa.

Chicken Chimichangas

You can fill these as much or as little as you like depending on your family. I find 6 works well for one recipe but small kids might only eat half of one. For a dairy free version use special cheese or dice up an avocado in place of the grated cheese.
