I like chicken but sometimes I feel it gets a little old. Not that I'm eating old chicken, that would be gross. And for the record, if your chicken has a funky smell or mold then maybe you should toss it and try something else. Ok, so now that everyone has lost their appetite...

This honey ginger chicken bites recipe is a way to spice up chicken a little bit. The honey glaze adds a nice marinade, but then also works as a delicious dip. It's also not fried or soaked in butter, so it will fit most diets (unless you're vegetarian of course). I also find myself coming back to this recipe because I can prepare the chicken earlier in the day or the night before, and then have it ready to pop in the oven when I get home from work.

This eggplant lasagna is a great alternative to traditional lasagna. Not that I'm saying there is anything wrong with traditional lasagna, but my goal is to get more vegetables into everyday meals. If that isn't ambitious enough, I also want to diversify the types of vegetables I'm eating. I have my favorites that show up in a majority of meals, but I want to learn about and find ways to use others. Eggplant is one I don't eat often. It doesn't really have a lot of flavor to me and I don't have great ideas of how to use it in meals... but that will change!
