You’re tired from working all day or maybe your kid’s soccer practice ran late. You feel rushed while you’re cooking, rushed while you eat, and then of course there’s the cleanup. You could go out to a restaurant, but that gets pricy. Plus it’s hard to monitor whether what you’re eating is healthy when you’re ordering off a menu. What if you could eat a delicious, healthy meal at home without cooking? No, I’m not talking about frozen dinners from the grocery store.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/7_day_dinner_plan_to_eat_for_a_week_and_hardly_cook_at_all#comments Food Blog Cooking tips Dinner Hilary Meyer Family meals Quick meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 12 Dec 2013 16:14:47 +0000 Stefan_20 279969 at http://www.eatingwell.com Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8559_Ardito_0.JPG" alt="Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes Blog Post" title="Restaurant-Worthy Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken in 35 Minutes Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Cooking this recipe for Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Mushroom Marsala Sauce does the travel-in-your-kitchen trick of making it feel like you’re having dinner in an Italian bistro. The Marsala is part of the spell, of course—treat yourself to a little bottle of the fortified wine next time you’re at the liquor store so you have it on hand to turn up the sophistication on savory sauces. The prosciutto is key, too—just a ½-ounce strip of thinly sliced cured ham wrapped around a nice boneless chicken thigh makes all the difference in boosting flavor and savoriness.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/restaurant_worthy_prosciutto_wrapped_chicken_in_35_minutes#comments Food Blog Budget meals Dinner Entertaining Family meals Quick meals Wendy Ruopp Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Fri, 06 Dec 2013 21:56:12 +0000 Stefan_20 279920 at http://www.eatingwell.com Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/ramen_grows_up_easy_healthy_chicken_ramen_soup_at_home <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/ramen_grows_up_easy_healthy_chicken_ramen_soup_at_home" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8557_Ardito_0.JPG" alt="Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home Blog Post" title="Ramen Grows Up: Easy, Healthy Chicken Ramen Soup at Home Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Remember when your furniture was mostly plastic crates in different configurations and you ate ramen at least once a day?

We’d like to buck the trend and give some love to one of our favorite cuts: boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Why are thighs so great? Sans skin and after a quick trim, they fall into the lean category, with 166 calories, 8 grams of fat and just 2 grams of saturated fat per 3-ounce portion. That is <em>only</em> 26 calories, 5 grams fat and 1 gram saturated fat more than 3 ounces of chicken breast.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/4_chicken_thigh_recipes_that_will_turn_you_onto_the_dark_side_of_chicken#comments Food Blog Budget meals Dinner Hilary Meyer Family meals Quick meals Recipe Makeover Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Thu, 21 Nov 2013 16:14:34 +0000 Stefan_20 279754 at http://www.eatingwell.com Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_recipes_from_the_november_2013_issue_of_eatingwell_magazine <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/staff_favorites_recipes_from_the_november_2013_issue_of_eatingwell_magazine" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/DS8590A_Scrivani.jpg" alt="Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine Blog Post" title="Staff favorites recipes from the November 2013 issue of EatingWell Magazine Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>Our double issue for November and December is an easy one to love: it&rsquo;s stuffed with gorgeous photos of fabulous food and it arrives just when you start thinking about cooking for all the season&rsquo;s celebrations.
