There is nothing like coming home to a warm bowl of beef stew on a chilly night. Packed with vegetables, tender beef, and a flavorful broth, this crockpot beef stew pretty much makes itself while you are off doing other things. A few minutes of prep time in the morning is all you need, and seven or eight hours later, your dinner is ready and waiting.

Full of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber, these bowls fill your body with important nutrients to help you keep your energy level up–and they taste delicious too. The slightly sweet pear slices and charred onions, the tangy dressing, the earthy lentils and greens, they all blend together so beautifully, and the nutritional benefits are a bonus.
Warm up a winter evening with this cozy nacho chicken bake! With chicken, rice, tomatoes, chiles, and corn all baked with lots of cheese and spices, this dish has “comfort food” written all over it.
Since most of the ingredients in this recipe come from my pantry or freezer, I like to pull it out when we are low on fresh produce and in need of a hot, dependable dish of delicious nourishment. Though the total cooking/baking time takes between an hour and an hour and a half, (depending on whether you already have your chicken cooked), the amount of hands-on time is only about ten minutes, so you can get other things done while this bakes peacefully in your oven, filling your kitchen with a delicious aroma.
