Chicken Shawarma Bowls and Naan

Few cuisines embody the fresh veggies/tasty meat genre better than Middle Eastern IMO. I absolutely love shawarma, and it is incredibly easy to make. Flavorful, juicy, charred chicken with cool, crisp veggies and creamy yogurt and hummus sauces. Makes me happy just thinking about it!

Super Easy {wildcard} Meatballs

This recipe for meatballs is quick and simple and can be used in many different dishes. I used half of this batch for meatball subs (recipe to come soon) and the other half will be used to make sweet and spicy Asian meatball bowls (recipe to come soon too).

They could also be used in soups, with pasta and tomato or veggie sauce, Mediterranean bowls or sandwiches, Swedish style with egg noodles and a brown gravy, or just with some teriyaki sauce and rice. That’s why I call them “wildcard.” Use your imagination. Make a batch, throw them in the freezer and you have a blank canvas for a meal.

Pancakes, Politics, and Dehumanization

I believe all humans have intrinsic value because we are all made in the image of God; Imago Dei. Even if you don’t believe that, I’m sure you believe that there is something that connects us all and gives us value. Otherwise, murder should be legal.

Wholehearted Leadership: Being a Human Manager

The things that most leaders are missing are vulnerability, empathy and boundaries. Accepting the fact that you are human goes a very, very long way in leadership. This means accepting, embracing and harnessing your strengths and your weaknesses.
