Personal (Chicken) Pot Pies

2014-03-25 18.14.44

I love to find simple ways to cook my food separate from Adam’s.  You know, make sure all of the delicious vegetable are untainted by meat. 🙂  Making individual portions of the pot pie was the perfect way to do that!

When I was thinking of what to call this, I was inspired by Pizza Hut’s Personal Pan Pizzas.  I used to do Book-It in elementary school, so each month my family would go to Pizza Hut for dinner, and I would get a free personal pan pizza because I got enough stickers from the books I read.  Anyway…  In honor of two separate pot pies, I introduce to you the Personal Pot Pie.

Roasted Pepper Roll-Ups with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

Believe it or not, there have been several times I wish I ate meat.  Almost every time I am cooking a new meat recipe for Adam, whenever he is trying it  – that’s about it – those are the times I want to eat meat.  It’s hard to feel like I’m not missing out on those sauces, marinades, and spices that season the meat. Well not this time!

This is Way Too Complicated!

Most people that I have talked to don’t know much about cooking for a vegetarian.  I get a lot of, “Do you like pasta?”  I don’t mean to make any judgments or jump to unjust conclusions, but the delicious-ness and diversity of a vegetarian diet isn’t well know!  To tell you the truth, my vegetarian diet didn’t go beyond pastas and cheese until recently as well.  Add my husband Adam into the mix, who loves meat and hates cheese, and we become a tough crowd to cook for!

Believe it or not, cooking for a vegetarian (and an omnivore) can be quite simple!  Given our very opposite diets, the food I have been making for us is very easy to adapt to different dietary needs – not only vegetarian, but also vegan, lactose-free, gluten-free, etc.  They also focus on healthy eating – lots of vegetables, some starches, and delicious spices as the center-pieces of each meal!
