Grilled chicken drumsticks with California Citrus Rub and a Big Salad: romaine lettuce, olives, sliced almonds, radishes, tomatoes, cucumbers, red bell peppers


Green Chile Chorizo Cauliflower Casserole (could also use any ground meat spiced with homemade taco seasoning instead of chorizo).



Masala Cauliflower. Served with my favorite chopped kale salad (I always double the recipe; use raisins & slivered almonds, cheaper option). The cauliflower packs a lot of flavor, but the spices weren’t necessarily married until the next day. Next time I’ll make the night before. It’s delicious and pairs nicely with the raisins in the salad.



Tequila Cilantro Lime Chicken. Truly absorbs all the flavor from the marinade. Don’t settle for restaurant chicken. Make this. It’s fast, easy and far better than anything from a restaurant.
