|Butter Sage Fish en Papillote||Oven||Entree||Easy||Great|
A favorite and super-reliable recipe! Will try again with other herbs.
Slow Cooker White Bean and Kielbasa Stew
Great for a cold night, and super easy.
Spicy Asian Chicken w/ Brussels Sprouts
Avoid breading the chicken. Too much trouble for what it's worth.
Turkey Meatballs in Paprika Tomato Sauce
Don't overcook - the meatballs kind of fall apart.

This is sure to become a staple. Easy and quite cheap.
Slow Cooker Thai Yellow Curry with Grass Fed Beef Brisket
This one was easy and good enough to give it another go. I even froze a good amount for leftovers.
There are few recipes I'd label "easy" from Gwenyth's cookbook. This one relatively easy, but putting is as "medium" because of all of the steps involved (involving an appliance like a blender just ups the ante for me). Still - this is delicious and totally worth it.

Warm White Beans and Roasted Fennel
Made it the first time without spinach because I didn't have any and was still great!
|Cajun Chicken Gumbo||Stovetop||Entree||Easy||Great|
I don't know why Blue Apron claims this is two servings. It's at least 4-6, and you can add a litlte extra meat to stretch. SO good.
Pan-Seared Salmon with Fennel and Heirloom Potato Salad
Made this for Sunday lunch. I'd like to get the fennel sliced thinner and cook the potatoes slightly less, but otherwise great!
|Chipotle Pork Tacos||Easy||Great|
So good! The flavors are great with the pork. Next time, I'd marinade the pork for at least a couple of hours.
|Shrimp, Leek & Spinach Pasta||Easy||Great|
Didn't have leeks, so I just used an onion and caramelized it a bit (but not too much). Added some garlic, too. This was yum!
|Chicken Curry in a Hurry||Easy||Great|
So good. Husband and son devoured it. I added some zucchini for some extra veggies.
|Slow Cooker Carnitas||Easy||Great|
Delicious. Made this pork tacos with friends. I had about four pounds of pork butt to use - probably could've used a little less broth. It'd also be fun to add other cooking juices like salsa.
|Chicken and Pepper Fajitas||Easy||Great|
Tasty, easy and cheap. You don't really need a recipe for this one. Fajita night!
|Beef and Shallot Stew||Easy||Great|
Big hit and so easy! Perfect for company.
|Honey Soy Chicken||Easy||Good|
Kudos to mom for this recipe. Very tasty! I'd try it again with skin-on chicken breasts with rib meat.
|Black Beans and Onions||Easy||Good|
Easy and cheap. Add avocado, scallions, cheese, greek yogurt, etc. to make it more interesting.
Made when grandmas were here - everyone enjoyed it!
Crock Pot Primal Chicken Tortilla Soup
Make when grandmas were here and they liked it. Would be good to try as a freezer meal!
|Chicken and Potato Chowder||Easy||Good|
Didn't have milk, so used heavy cream. Didn't have tarragon so used dried rosemary. Used red potatoes. Let individuals add cheese. Turned out great!
Skillet-Poached Huevos Rancheros
GREAT! Make sure to pay attention to cooking times: about 3 minutes. I overcooked and the yolks were totally cooked. Didn't dig that.
|Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin||Easy||Good|
Great flavors. The first time I made it they only had pork chops at the store. Unfortunately, they got a little dry. I'd try this again with a loin for sure.
|Slow Cooker Indian Chicken Stew||Easy||Good|
I used chicken breast pieces instead of thigh and it got really dry. I'd give it another go with the dark meat.
Butternut Squash, Caramelized Onion and Spinach Lasagna
Not worth it. I love all of these flavors, but together, they fall flat. And it's way too much worth to justify.
Black Bean Pasta with Kale and Cherry Tomatoes
Um, black bean pasta just sort of disintegrates. I guess I'd try this again with regular pasta, but not that special.
|Classic Pot Roast|
Chicken Tortilla Soup (freezer meal)
Spinach and Goat Cheese Frittata
|Wendy's Copycat Chili||Instant Pot||Entree||Easy||Great|
So good. Only issue is it's a bit too much liquid. I think I'll drain the tomatoes next time and use half of the tomato sauce to see how that works. Easy enough to mix your own chili seasoning if you have the spices. I also skipped the green bell pepper the second time I made this and didn't miss it.
Sausage, Tomato and Arugula Fettuccine
Easy wereknight meal. Better with fresh pasta. Make sure to get shaved cheese (I accidentally ordered grated.)

|Overnight Breakfast Casserole||Slow Cooker||Entree|
Overnight Slow Cooker Oatmeal – Cinnamon Apple
Works fine at 7 hours on low for my slow cooker. And, even though it switched to the "keep warm" setting an hour or two before we ate it, it was still tasty!
