Garlic Lime Chicken Wraps

One night last week, I decided to make up a quick garlic lime marinade for some chicken that needed to be cooked. I quickly threw together various items from the cabinet and the result was delicious! Since that time, this is actually the second time I have made the wraps because they are SO GOOD! Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade. Even just plain chicken breasts grilled and served with summer vegetables are great with this quick and easy combination.

6 Uncooked, Breast Chicken Tenders
1 Lime, Juiced
1 Clove Garlic, Sliced
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
4 Soft Tortillas 
4 Strips Bacon, Cooked
4 Slices Provolone Cheese
Tomato, Thinly Sliced
Lettuce Leaves
Avocado, Sliced
1. Combine marinade ingredients in a shallow dish. Place the chicken into the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2. Preheat a grill pan over medium heat. Cook the chicken strips on medium heat for 5 minutes per side or until cooked throughout. Remove from heat and slice into large chunks.
3. To assemble the wraps, place a slice of cheese in the middle of the wrap. Lay the hot chicken directly on the cheese. Top with a strip of bacon and then selected toppings. Tuck the ends in and then fold over like a burrito to roll.
4. Serve with chips and enjoy!

Note: You can also eat the chicken on a bun with the same toppings if you do not have or do not like wraps.

Lentil Burgers

Last night I cooked a large pot of lentils as part of our family dinner, which means that today, I was left wondering what I could do with all these lentils for the coming week. My typical use for lentils is in chili or soups, however, that is not something that I really wanted on this bright, spring day. Instead, I thought about how I could morph the leftovers into something new that I could use throughout the week, and that is when I thought of revamping my normal veggie burger recipe. Now, as promised, since this is the Quarantine Cooking Series, please feel free to use whatever beans or greens you have in your house. While I love the way this recipe turned out, it is more important that you use what you have and the technique to create a delicious meal for you and your family. Additionally, I like my veggie burgers on the spicy side. However, this is another place when personal modifications should be made to your palate preferences. 3 Tablespoons canola oil, divided

Black-eyed Pea Croquettes

So it is well known that I make  Black Bean Burgers  all the time. I love the versatility of the recipe and the ability to make a week of lunches in about 15 minutes. Today, I found myself with a bowl of leftover black-eyed peas in the fridge and the desire for something new. This recipe is also great because I always have canned black-eyed peas in the pantry since they are one of my husband's favorite vegetables, which means I can make this recipe anytime. So whether you use leftover homemade, like I did, or canned, this recipe is great. Additionally, these are not coated and fried like traditional croquettes, which makes them an even better option. Enjoy these as a side dish, on a sandwich, or with a side salad for a delicious, healthy, and easy meal. These do not hold or reheat well, so enjoy them while they're hot. 2 Cups Black-eyed Peas, drained and rinsed 3 Scallions, whites and greens thinly sliced 1 Clove Garlic 1 Egg, lightly beaten 3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs,

Banana Zucchini Bread with Raisins and Cinnamon Sugar Swirl

It is that time of year again when I am working to develop new and interesting ways to use up all of the vegetables coming from the garden. Last year, I posted "The Best Zucchini Bread"  recipe; this is still a great recipe but this one is even better! Since entering my last trimester of pregnancy, I am craving cinnamon raisin bread. This recipe was created to help merge the two flavors while also adding in some nutrients from bananas, as I always seems to have 2 or 3 that get left over and become a little too ripe. This bread is so fragrant, moist, and delicious! If I had some walnuts in the freezer, I might even finely chop some and incorporate them into the swirl for even more texture. This bread is perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert. I hope you will give this recipe a try. 2 very ripe Bananas, mashed 1 cup Zucchini, grated 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil 1 Egg, beaten 1 teaspoon Vanilla 3/4 cup Sugar 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Bakin
