Barley Risotto with Garlicky Spinach

Barley Risotto and Garlicky Spinach for #WeekdaySupper

Lately I’ve been a little tired of Moroccan food. It’s delicious and all, but sometimes I just want a simple meal, without the heavy cumin and coriander spices. Part of me is just a little homesick, and when I’m homesick, I crave comfort foods—like mac and cheese!

Chicken Fried Rice - 28

After Casablanca, A Simple Chicken Fried Rice for #WeekdaySupper

Fried rice is my go-to dish whenever I have odds and ends to finish up in the fridge. This chicken fried rice changes it up with Brussels sprouts instead of traditional peas or broccoli, but the recipe can easily be adapted for whatever veggies and protein you have on hand.
