Tips for Boiling Chicken


So, I’ve seen a few mentions of boiling chicken to cook it, or with the end goal of shredding. A lot of those have mentioned that it’s best to boil it in broth, and that water’s a good substitute if you don’t have it.

Well, I always boil my chicken in water, and here’s why: the water becomes…


Spinach and Artichoke Dip Pasta


When I was little I would help my mom in the kitchen. One meal I distinctly remember was golabki. Golabki are basically just cabbage rolls filled with rice and meat, however you can substitute the meat for tvp or mushrooms if you want a vegetarian / vegan version. It also makes a large amount so…

Childhood Memory Soup
Shout out to my mom for this amazing three-ingredient recipe that’s served me well over the years! It take less than 10 minutes to put together, and is delicious, vegetarian, and full of protein! 
Servings: Usually about 4-5, depending on amount of optional ingredients you put in. 
Core ingredients: 
-4 cups of broth (chicken, beef, veggie—whatever rocks your socks!) 
-1 can of lentils 
-1 140 g package of herb goat cheese (I use the PC kind—it’s 3.99-4.99 a package, which may be a little steep for some folks, but it tastes delicious and will last you a few meals!) Optional ingredients (use at least one of these to thicken it up! I usually go for tomatoes, which are featured in the picture): 
-half a can of tomatoes (and/or) 
-1.5 cups of chopped mushrooms (and/or) 
-1 chopped onion 
-spices (I usually use cayenne pepper, oregano, onion powder, salt, and pepper.)Boil up the broth, throw in the lentils and/or other ingredients, melt in the package of cheese, add some spices to taste, and you’re good to go! Enjoy :)

Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta Ingredients: 12 ounces pasta (Shown  Linguine) 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor) 1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves 2 large sprigs basil, chopped 4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium) 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish Directions: Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired . Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.
