Frittatas are the perfect breakfast or brunch necessity. Also great to make ahead for meal prep. I usually make them with whatever I have on hand. In the spring, asparagus is wonderful with Swiss cheese, but you can also use mozzarella or Havarti. Some other egg dishes you may love Tomato and Zucchini Frittata, Spinach and Feta Frittata or Broccoli and Cheese Quiche.

It’s probably pretty obvious by the many fried rice recipes on my blog that I LOVE fried rice! While I enjoy ordering takeout from a restaurant, I always try to find ways to recreate fried rice at home. That way, I can control what goes in it and keep it a bit lighter. I have multiple fried rice recipes, like House Special Fried Rice, Pineapple Shrimp Fried Rice, and Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice , but since I am the only salmon lover in my house, I usually whip this dish up for one, it’s my favorite! Also great with leftover salmon. You can double or triple as needed.

Growing up in a Latin home, beef picadillo was on dinner rotation as a kid. It’s also one of the first things I learned how to cook. It’s a 30 minute dish, while it cooks I cook my rice in another pot so everything is ready at the same time. Serve it with a quick slaw for a little acidity and dinner is ready! My family loves it with beef, but some nights I like to switch it up with turkey as a leaner option. I personally am not a fan of 99% lean turkey, it’s too dry for my taste so I use 93% lean ground turkey instead. Leftovers are great in tacos, empanadas or quesadillas.

I’m a huge fan of sheet pan meals as they are a huge kitchen time saver! I like to line the sheets with foil or parchment for easy clean-up, completely optional. Here I marinated the fish, then cooked the sauce down on the stove to create a glaze over the fish (I highly recommend this) but if you wish to skip this step, it will still taste fine.
