How I Got Out Of A Cooking Rut

Lately, I’ve been in a bit of a cooking rut.  I know, it’s not my typical topic to share about.  However, if you are at all like me, I have so much going on that I never plan dinner.  I buy the same things at the grocery store each week then I get home at 5:30 or so and need to have dinner on the table by 6.  Therefore, having the same meal over and over makes it brainless, easy and just boring.  There is something about spring that makes me revaluate everything including what’s for dinner.  I spent a little time a few weeks ago and found some amazing dishes I thought I’d share with you.

First of all, in my house we eat healthy.  Typically we eat lean meats and veggies and a little rice or quinoa for the family.  I was so thrilled to find SkinnyTaste.com as Gina’s recipes are exactly my taste and my timing.  Meaning that everything is quick to make and tastes delicious.  Here are a few of my favorite new meals to get out of my cooking rut that I found on SkinnyTaste.com with a link on how to make it!  I made all three of these recipes last week and they were delicious and a big hit in the Blair house!  Stella even tried Pork for the first time and loved it.
