Black Bean Burger

I made the mistake of buying a very LARGE pack of Black Bean Burgers from Costco recently. I say mistake because they were the most flavorless things I’ve ever tasted.  Not to mention they completely fell apart … and I mean COMPLETELY.  They were totally inedible.  I couldn’t even pick up the pieces with a […]

Roasted Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili

Before I dive into today’s soul warming recipe I wanted to share with you a few things that have been going on behind the scenes at Happily Unprocessed.  1.  First off, I have (very slowly) been adding the NUTRITIONAL information to our recipes.  This is not an easy task and it’s taken me most of December.  […]

Lemon Quinoa

Happy January!  We have hit a deep freeze here in the Midwest.  The tree is down but the outside lights are still up.  I think they might be there until June. But I love January.  You know why?  Because 3/4 of the planet is trying to lose weight and eat better, which is great for […]

White Bean and Ham Soup

From our humble hearts to yours, we hope you had a magical Christmas with love and laughter with family and friends. And ham.  We hope you had ham because we have ham. A LOT OF HAM. My father in law passed away last year and he was Polish, as is my husband … and well my […]

Cheesy Au Gratin Potatoes

I don’t think I’ve come across a potato recipe that I haven’t fallen in love with.  Let’s face it, it’s very hard to destroy a potato.  But the addition of a warm cheesy sauce and then baking until it’s bubbly and hot is just magical!  That my friends is the definition of Potatoes Au Gratin. […]

Coconut Macaroons

After I posted the recipe for the Candied Pecans it got me to thinking (very prematurely I might add) about other Holiday Treats.  Let’s face it, starting with Halloween right on down to Christmas we are inundated with commercials pushing all kinds of very unhealthy, processed foods on us. I still like to feel a […]

Creamy Lemon Chicken Piccata

This chicken piccata is a great weeknight go to recipe! Perfectly cooked chicken in a creamy lemon sauce that is on the table in 30 minutes! Serve with your favorite pasta, noodles or rice, a veggie and salad. It’s week 6 of me working full time now and I think this past weekend was the […]

Tuna Cakes with Spicy Sriracha Aioli Sauce

I love crab cakes.  But I don’t love the cost.  Real crab can be very expensive so when I was in the mood for them the other day, I decided to make Tuna Cakes instead. These tuna cakes can be made as the recipe states, or if you like things a little hotter, add in […]

Candied Pecans

With the holidays coming up I am anticipating being ambushed at work with Holiday Cookie Exchanges in every department. I kind of like to go against the grain.  If everyone is baking cookies then why not bring it something a little different right? These pecans are first given an egg white bath and then coated in […]

Chicken Marsala

Are you in need of another under 30 minute weeknight dinner?  I’ve got you covered my friends. Now I know there are either mushroom LOVERS or mushroom HATERS in the world.  But don’t let that deter you from making this Chicken Marsala recipe.  You can omit the mushrooms and still get all that great flavor.  […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Fajita Soup

Hello friends!  I have a great soup for you all today that is super simple to make and packed full of flavor. This Chicken Fajita Soup has all the flavors of a chicken fajita but in a bowl.  It has a chicken broth base and the addition of rice to fill up that tummy. We’ve got […]

The MOST Amazing Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Yay!  Slow cooker season is here!   Slow cookers are my Fall GO TO and they are PERFECT for roasts ! You all are going to absolutely L-O-V-E this roast!  After simmering in a crockpot all day, the meat simply falls apart and melts in your mouth and the gravy is to DIE for!   I cannot wait […]

Paleo Beer Battered Fish

Well I have managed to make it through 2 weeks of my new job.  Things sure have changed in the working world since I left in 2008!  But I am enjoying my new life and the family is still in adjustment mode. I really don’t have a routine yet when it comes to dinner, although one […]

Simple, Easy and Delicious Chili

I hope everyone had a great weekend and got out to enjoy the beautiful fall days we’re having now.  I for one am glad the heat is finally gone.  Why?  Because I have been DYING to make Chili. I have a few chili recipes on here, like the White Bean Chicken Chili, and another Chicken […]
