Soy & Ginger Baked Chicken
This chicken is a little sweet from the honey, and savory from the soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Big flavor goes all the way from skin to bone, and it is so delicious! And you won't believe how easy it is.
  1. 3-4 pounds skin-on, bone-in drumsticks and thighs
  1. 1/2 cup soy sauce
  2. 5 tablespoons honey
  3. 3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  4. 1 tablespoon garlic pressed through a garlic press
  5. 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  6. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  7. Chopped green onions for garnish
  1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl, and whisk to combine.
  2. Place chicken pieces in a big ziplock bag, and pour in the marinade. Get as much air out as possible and seal.
  3. Place in the refrigerator for about 24 hours, turning once or twice so the marinade can seep into all the chicken.
  4. When you are ready to bake the chicken, take the chicken out of the refrigerator and place in an oven-proof baking dish, skin side up (our 4 pounds of chicken barely fit into a 13x9 dish.)
  5. Pour the marinade over the chicken into the baking dish.
  6. Bake for about 30-40 minutes at 475 degrees, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin becomes dark and crispy.
  7. If the skin isn't browned, you can also turn the broiler on for a few minutes.
  8. Take the chicken out of the dish and put on a platter. Garnish with green onions.
  9. If desired, put the marinade/sauce from the baking dish into a oil/fat separator cup and pour the sauce over your chicken (and rice if you are serving over rice.)
  10. Bon Appetit! πŸ˜€

Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic-Herb Drizzle
My favorite way to eat cauliflower! If you don't like cauliflower, this may convert you πŸ˜€
  1. 1 head cauliflower
  2. Grapeseed oil
Garlic-Herb Drizzle (makes 1/4 cup. You only need a bit for the cauliflower, but save the rest for dipping veggies or drizzling over chicken!)
  1. 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  2. 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  3. 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  4. 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  5. 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  6. freshly ground black pepper
  7. 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  8. 3 cloves fresh garlic, pressed through a garlic press
  1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into bite-sized florets and put onto a baking pan.
  3. Drizzle some grapeseed oil, just enough to lightly coat the cauliflower. Toss with your hands to coat.
  4. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the edges are brown and crispy.
  5. While the cauliflower is roasting, place all of the Garlic-Herb drizzle ingredients into a bowl, and mix to combine. Let it sit so the flavors can meld.
  6. Place the hot cauliflower onto a plate and drizzle with the Garlic-Herb Drizzle, making sure to get some of the garlic and herbs onto the cauliflower.
  7. Serve immediately.
  1. Serves 4.
  2. Prep time: 4 minutes. Cook time: 20 minutes. Total time: 25 minutes.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Soft Serve
You won't believe how good this is! We make it all the time, and we never get sick of it. Healthy and delicious - the perfect combo!
  1. 2 frozen very ripe bananas
  2. 1/4-1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  3. 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
  4. 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  5. pinch of sea salt
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Add the banana, 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk, cocoa powder, peanut butter, salt, and vanilla into a high-speed blender.
  2. Blend until smooth. If needed, add more almond milk to enable the blender to catch the ingredients. If you add too much almond milk, it will turn into a milkshake (nothing wrong with that!) πŸ˜€
