Roasted Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Feta Salad

I love a good salad, but I find that I usually get into ruts from time to time.  I am constantly using the same ingredients and, well, it's boring.  So I've been trying to jazz things up by trying new ingredients and flavor combos.  One of my favorites has been this Roasted Sweet Potato, Spinach, and Feta Salad.

Easy Korean Beef Rice Bowl Recipe

Recently I have really been trying to clean up my eating.  I did that crazy thing that people do, and starting watch all the food documentaries on Netflix and immediately started to make some changes.  The only hard part was that I had just purchased a 1/4 beef from a local farmer, that now resides in my freezer.  As you now, red meat is very taboo in the world of healthy eating, but I have found a few recipes using it that are simple, quick, and inexpensive.  Take my Korean Beef Rice Bowls for example.

Using ingredients that many of you already have in your pantry, you can create this easy meal in the time that it takes to cook your rice.  And the best part...It's actually healthy.  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Easy Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

I'm not shy about trying new foods.  In fact, I would say I'm fairly adventurous.  One of my favorite places to experiment is a buffet. I have a friend who is vegan, and she is always telling me about all the different ways they use tofu.  I've never really tried it before, so a few months back I was at a Chinese buffet with my sister, and decided that I was going to try the Tofu Stir Fry.  



I know what you're thinking, "TOFU MANDEE?!?  REALLY!?!" But trust me, this recipe is absolutely delicious and I'm sure it's going to change your mind.  I can't wait to share it with you, so....
