Berry Chia Seed Freezer Jam

The addition of the chia seeds is a nutritional bonus because the seeds add nutrients, fiber and protein to the berry jam. But the chia seeds are a key component of the jam in another way because they act as the thickening agent, eliminating the need for extra sugar.

Lamb Kebabs with Tzatziki Sauce

Maybe because my husband made it and maybe because it involves grilling, I think this meal is a perfect choice for Father’s Day. These grilled lamb kebabs wrapped in warm pita and drizzled with creamy, garlic yogurt sauce are worthy of all the main men in your life.

Creamy Avocado Pesto

My family likes to add chicken or chicken sausage, and feta crumbles to the creamy avocado pasta. Outside of pasta dishes, the avocado pesto is also like an Italian-style guacamole that is flavorful simply as a dip for breadsticks and veggies.

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

In my family we don’t have a structured meal plan but we definitely tend to fall back on our simple favorites for busy nights. I love it when we find a new quick and easy meal that can be added to our weeknight meal rotation. This spicy peanut sauce makes the cut!

Coconut Syrup

A little bit of this coconut syrup goes a long way. It is rich and sweet and will transport you to the islands in just one bite. I use the syrup for breakfast on banana macadamia nut pancakes and I also like to incorporate it into desserts.

Spinach Pesto

Traditional pesto is intense and, as I guessed, you don’t even notice that the spinach is in there because the other flavors {basil, garlic and pine nuts} dominate. As with basic pesto, a little bit goes a long way. You just need a couple of spoonfuls to stir into a pasta sauce or spread on top of a pesto cheese bread.

Chipotle Salsa

Chipotle seems to be one of those flavors that you either love or hate. It wasn’t until recently that I started to appreciate the smoky flavor of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce {smoked and dried jalapenos in a tangy red sauce}.

Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette

This lemon-thyme-honey vinaigrette is light, refreshing and easy to make. I tossed my salad with apple, Havarti cheese, asparagus and pumpkin seeds but you can add whatever ingredients you would like.
