Friends with Recipes: Chicken Enchiladas


We have another beautiful meal from my lovely friend Nomi today! Her baked gnocchi recipe was super popular, and I have no doubt this one will be as well. Everything Nomi cooks, bakes, sews, etc. is so utterly wholesome and charming; I hope she keeps sending us posts to share!

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Taquitos

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! As an American living abroad, it is my duty to share the celebration to the best of my abilities. This is why we pre-gamed Cinco de Mayo tonight so I would have time to share it all with you before the big day! (I’ll also be carrying around a bottle of tequila with disposable shot glasses, salt and limes with me all day, so hit me up if you see me!)

Sweet Potato & Avocado Tacos with Slaw

I am so excited to tell you about my new collaboration with the online magazine, Ladyland! These ladies are basically the coolest mums online. Truly. They blog about craft projects, life hacks, decorating, makeup, and anything else a hip mum needs to know about life. I am over the moon to have been invited to be their food contributor! The best part (aside from getting to make ridiculous Periscope videos with Emma) is that they are able to take my simple meals and make them look incredible. I am always taking quick snaps with my iPhone while trying to cook a weeknight meal for two hungry kids, and my pictures are usually mediocre at best. But look out, because a few times a month you will be treated to seeing my food styled and photographed by Ladyland! (Whoop whoop!)

Brown Rice and Quinoa Enchilada Bake

As an American in London I can tell you that the only reliable place to get good Mexican food is in my own home. Sure, there are some decent places for Mexican food (Wahaca being one), but no where I can reliably get a good enchilada. Especially not a good vegetarian one!

I’ve adapted this recipe  with a few adaptations to make it simpler and more to my taste. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Weekly Meal Plan #6

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

We’ve had a fantastic break, but I admit I am looking forward to getting back to normal life! I’ve spent the last few weeks feasting on heavy foods and far too many Christmas cookies, and am looking forward to returning to our usual vegetarian fare.

We’re starting out the new year with some of our favourite recipes. I am particularly excited to share Tuesday’s recipe with you. It is SO good!

Quick Meal: Fajita Bowls

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 presetDoes anyone remember that TV show called Semi Homemade with Sandra Lee? That’s what I always think of when I take massive shortcuts as I do in this quick meal. I’m kind of embarrassed to show you how to make this because it involves a product that I am a bit ashamed of using: pre-cooked rice. WAIT! Before you stop reading, give me a second to explain . . . Okay, I don’t actually have a great explanation, other than I saw a friend using it to make dinner one night and it tasted great! No joke. Since then, I have always kept a bag of it around, because I inevitably forget to cook rice until the rest of my meal is already made. I use this “Mexican style” version in this dish:
