One of my enormous tasks for this week was updating my Recipe Index. It’s been a very long time since it’s been updated and it feels really good to get it done! (At some point, I want to redo the format of my recipe index, but until then, it will do). Of course, looking over past recipes, I found some recipes that I had forgotten about! I wanted to share a few meal and snack ideas that I thought would be especially appropriate for this back to school busy season. While my almost four year old does preschool at home with me, my husband is starting college again this Monday. It’s a lovely, but busy time for our family. Here are a few recipes I will be putting back on our recipe rotation. Enjoy!
Simple Chicken Noodle Soup is so easy to throw together. My husband made it for him and Elena numerous times when I was sick with morning sickness (Note: He does not enjoy cooking, but found it easy enough that he didn’t mind throwing it together). It does have a long cooking time, but you don’t have to have premade homemade chicken stock for it as it makes it’s own stock as it cooks. I think it could be adapted well to a slow cooker too.
Roasted Meat and Vegetable Dinner. I love the taste and the simplicity of this dinner! It’s easy to throw together and fast to clean up. Perfect for a weekday night when life is crazy.
This simple rice salad is a very frugal and a family favorite. It makes a great meal for the fall when the weather hasn’t yet turned too cool yet.
These spiced macaroons are perfect for the fall and for packing in lunch pails. They remind me just a little of gingerbread cookies and my husband of oatmeals cookies (without the oatmeal!). They are also gluten and grain and dairy free. Coolness.
Another delicious but simple recipe is for sweet almond cookies. These cookies use ground almonds and a few other ingredients to make a grain and dairy free cookie. Yum! Another cookie for the packed lunch.
Or, for even more protein power, why not try…..Delicious honey nut bars! A great alternative to the sickly sweet and yucky ingredient granola bars! These are also grain and gluten free and they are full of protein.

Yum, the roasted meat and veggie dinner looks great and so easy! I am ready for Brussels sprouts season again.
Every time I click on the link for the sweet almond cookies, it takes me to the spiced macaroons.
Is it just me or is this link not working for anyone?
Thanks and God Bless,
I fixed it! Sorry about that. 🙂
Is there much difference in the texture of the finished product between using raw nuts to start or soaked and dehydrated nuts???
Same thing happened to me, Angela. Just search in her recipe index under desserts.
Did you try it recently? It’s fixed on my side now, hopefully it’s working for others too!
I wish I had some of this soup right now!!
Thanks for updating the recipe index. A month or so ago, I was trying to find the sweet and sour ribs recipe and couldn’t. After searching some old email files, I found it. It’s awesome to have it available through the index now. :0)
Your recipe index is the first place I come when I’m looking to try out something new. :O) Several of your recipes are staples in our home now. I use the roasted meat & veggies and the simple chicken noodle soup on a regular basis. I LOVE them! They’re super easy and super yummy. :O) We all love the sweet almond cookies, too. A batch of those doesn’t last very long around here. :O)
Jen @ Oh no! I really do need to eat my vegetables!
I do a quick dinner like your roasted meat and vegetable a lot too. I cook up fish or leftover meat, and do a quick pan-fry of whatever veggies I happen to have. Little prep, little work, and quick result.
I forget how wonderful chicken noodle soup is too. Good year-round 🙂
Hi, I’ve enjoyed reading your blog for about 6 months now, just never commented.
This may seem like a random question, but I’m considering investing in a quality camera and like the quality of the images you post. Would you mind telling me what kind of camera you use? Also, do you have any kind of special lenses (I’m new at photography, but I’d like to get into it!) and if you think a photo editing program is worth it.
Have a great day!
thanks for the super easy chicken soup recipe 🙂 do you think it would freeze well?
Yes! It would freeze well as long as you froze it before you added the noodles. 🙂
I’m taking your e-course and can’t get to any of the forums. When I click on any of them it takes me back to the “Your Membership Information” page. I apologize for leaving this here, but didn’t know of another way to reach you.
I tried the Honey Nut Bars this morning, and all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you! They were absolutely delicious crumbled over a little Greek Yogurt for breakfast. Since going grain-free a couple of months ago, I’ve been very disappointed in the almond-meal based recipes I’ve tried, but no more! Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Everything looks great!
just curious–did you used to post regularly on the Feingold bb?
