Imagine coming home after a long day to a tender BBQ beef sandwich. This slow cooker meal is so easy and you wont believe how much flavor these sandwiches have. All you have to do is chop some onions and pour some wine and soy sauce over it and let it cook while you work or play and finish it off with an easy BBQ sauce. These are delicious served on a crusty ciabatta bun alongside my lemony slaw.

Want an easy weeknight salmon recipe with about 4 ingredients? This pan seared salmon cooks, which cooks along with fresh lemon, rosemary and garlic, will impart flavor and be done in no time. I love to serve the fish alongside the roasted lemon slices and garlic – they are my favorite part of the dish. Serve fish with Mashed Potato salad with balsamic Vinaigrette alongside, or plate fish on top of a mound of the potatoes.

Sheet pan meals are the best! You place your entire meal on the tray, chicken and protein together, cook them and all there is to the cleanup is throwing away the parchment paper and you are done! This recipe uses lemony sumac and a great spice mix to coat both the chicken and the vegetables. The cauliflower, carrots and onions roast until they are carmelized and their sweetness comes out – making for a great balance with the chicken and roasted lemons. (Adapted from Cooking Light)

Whole Roasted Lemon Chicken

Sometimes on a wintery Hanukah night, as the candles burn inside it’s nice to sit around the table with family and friends and eat a simple and homey roasted chicken. This whole roasted chicken, with some extra bright flavor from lemons squeezed over the top, will hit the spot this Hanukah. I cook the chicken along with onions, carrots and potatoes, in one large roasting dish, so that all you have to do is carve it up and your whole meal is ready!

This pasta dinner is both delicious and super easy to make. The lemon zest and parmesan contribute some punch while the broccoli adds color and a nice bite. You can serve this pasta warm or make this dinner ahead of time and serve it at room temperature. (Adapted from The Barfeoot Contessa)

Lemon Parmesan Kale Salad

When I was growing up, Kale was that funny green stuff that showed up on a catering platter. As we all know, Kale has become one of the “it” superfoods and Kale salad is a favorite way to eat it. This Kale salad, with its lemon, garlic, and parmesan has a lot of punch. Unlike traditional salads made with lettuces, Kale salad will keep in the fridge without wilting for a day or two or can be made ahead and stored. (Adapted from Marin Mama website)
