Sautéed Summer Squash

This easy, quick sauté celebrates the beauty and fresh flavor of farm fresh zucchini and yellow squash. Ready for dinner in a few minutes, the leftovers are also wonderful in salads, quinoa bowls and omelettes.

Salmon with Honey, Dijon and Thyme

This quick, beautiful salmon is fantastic served hot or cold. It's a dish everyone at your table will enjoy. As a bonus, it's on the table in less than 30 minutes. Throw some asparagus in the oven at the same time, and you've got a healthy, delicious meal.

Vegetarian Chili with Butternut Squash

This smokey, hearty chili will please everyone in your house. It's vegetarian, vegan, paleo and, of course, gluten free. This chili is a nice addition to the table for those of you observing Lent too.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin

This is perfect summer fare. A quick marinade adds loads of flavor to this pork whether you have an hour or all night. A quick sauce add the final touch. Serve it with a light salad and a few roasted potatoes and you're in for a great weeknight meal.

Tortilla Soup

This savory, spicy and delicious soup is one of my favorites. The rich, smooth broth envelopes shredded chicken, avocado, Mexican cheese and cilantro creating a fantastic, flavorful soup everyone in your house will love. (this recipe is adapted from a Rick Bayless recipe)

Roast Chicken

This is a go-to recipe in KIlKenney Kitchen. The easy cooking method produces a juicy, delicious chicken every time. I think it pays to get a good quality chicken in the recipe. I typically buy a few of them when they are on sale at my local coop or the farmer's market. I love to use my Lodge Cast Iron pan to roast a chicken, but any roasting pan works wonderfully. Roast an extra one and use it throughout the week.

Rejuvenation Salad

This salad will make you feel better about life. It's a crunchy, delicious salad with a light lemon ginger dressing. Perfect for everything from a detox to a dinner party. I love to recover from all those rich holiday meals with this refreshing salad. The lemon ginger dressing works beautifully as a marinade for chicken or fish too, so make a double batch!
