Quinoa and Black Beans
Like some of the other reviewers I have a fiancé who is a little skeptical of healthy dishes and he licked his plate clean! (So did I!) i cannot believe how tasty this was and I even turned it into a main dish by cleaning out my cabinet. I added 1 breast of chicken I had on hand (diced it and sautéed w the onion, marinated w some crushed red pepper flakes, garlic and pepper for a few hours prior), cut the recipe in half, used chicken broth instead of veggie, EVOO instead of veg oil, more than doubled cayenne pepper ( we love things very spicy), and use freeze dried cilantro bc that's what I had on hand. Toyed with the idea of adding a can of garbanzo beans but decided to try it without for the first time. May add them next time just to add some extra protein and bc I love them! Will def make the full amount next time and keep the leftovers for lunches the next day. 5 servings turned out to be 2 and between the crushed red pepper and all the cayenne, it was super spicy! Can't wait to make this again and again! Thanks so much for a recipe I can feel so good about!

Boneless Buffalo Wings
Incredible! I cannot believe I've had this recipe saved so long and haven't tried it. We go to the same bar for boneless buffalo tenders that we consider the "best" and first taste, my fiance said that these were even better! I think I may have even cut the strips a little too thick but they still tasted delicious. It helps to let the chicken cool on a wire rack for a bit before adding the sauce (will make them a little more crisy). I also doubled the sauce and used 2tbsp of butter... try Frank's! Soo good! this will be a new regular for football sunday!

Golden Pork Chops
Oh my these were definitely one of the best pork chop recipes I've tried!! I didn't even realized I "screwed up" the recipe until later when I saw I was supposed to use golden mushroom soup instead of cream of mushroom. My fiance said... whatever I did, DO IT AGAIN. I also browned the pork chops (seasoned with salt & pepper) in some butter and the onions & mushrooms along with some minced garlic. I adjusted the recipe for 2 but still used a whole can of soup and upped the mushroom quantity by a lot (we love mushrooms!). Baked for 1/2 hour a little cooler for 1/2 hour (350 covered, flipped the chops and turned the oven up the last 10-15 minutes and uncovered. Making these again tonight and will experiment with some additional seasonings!
