Erik and I have been loving this Honey Sriracha Meatball recipe. I originally found a recipe on Pinterest a few months back from Eat Your Self Skinny and I’ve been making my own version, almost once a week, ever since. These meatballs are a great substitute for chicken and they add variety to our meals. We’ve been eating them as our protein with vegetables in Buddha bowls or simply by themselves as an appetizer. The flavors of sweet and spicy will explode in your mouth. These are definitely not my mama’s Italian style meatballs but they don’t fall too far behind….
Every once in a while, like a true Chicagoan, I crave a juicy Italian beef sandwich. The soggy bread, the sweet peppers, and the gooey cheese remind me of home. I grew up attending Chicago Bears tailgate parties, and beef sandwiches were always on the menu. My dad would have a large pot of Italian beef cooking on the portable grill and my job was to top each sandwich with extra juice and peppers.…
I’ll credit this lasagna dish to two things, my new KitchenAid gadget and the New Year.
Let’s be honest, I was a bit nervous trading my noodles for sweet potatoes when making lasagna but it’s January 1st so there was no better day to be adventurous. I’m so glad I took the risk because holy cow this Cottage Cheese Sausage Sweet Potato Lasagna is amazing. The cheese and sausage are very flavorful that you don’t even know the pasta is missing….
When life gives you lemons, make Lemon Chicken Piccata!
This classic one-pan lemon chicken dish is simple and elegant. Topped with capers and lemons the dish is refreshing.
Feeling a little crabby? So was I, but not grouchy just in the mood for some crabs! Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes to be exact.
Vegetable Lasagna is a combination of two of my favorite dishes, eggplant Parmesan and lasagna. If you’re craving an Italian meal but don’t want the food coma that comes with it, try this take on lasagna. It’s absolutely delicious but doesn’t contain all of the carbs that you’d find in pasta or fried eggplant. By substituting the noodles with eggplant and zucchini you’re sneaking in vegetables. At the same time, you’re packing your meal with protein by replacing the ricotta cheese with cottage.
When looking ahead, 2017 is looking pretty good for us! Erik and I have a few trips to look forward to, including our honeymoon! Since there will be a lot of bathing suits in my future, I’ve been a little more disciplined in the kitchen. For example, filling out meals with more vegetables and cutting back on dairy.
Lately, I’ve been searching for a healthy alternative to the buffalo chicken dip my husband loves so much. This recipe doesn’t call for the usual cream cheese or cheddar cheese. These buffalo chicken meatballs are super tasty and carry the heat you can find in a hot wings or buffalo dip. They’re the perfect super bowl snack!
If you aren’t so health conscious, try these Buffalo Chicken Wonton Cups!
Almond crusted chicken fingers are a healthy alternative to the childish chicken fingers and grilled cheese I still crave. …
Last night we finally returned home from a week long family vacation in Florida. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip, the week was filled with sunny weather, strong drinks, and delicious food. Although Georgia is still pretty warm, the drop in temperature had me craving some hot soup and the heavy thanksgiving dinner had me longing for veggies. Did I mention we ate A LOT of heavy food? I threw together a pot of my grandma’s soup, a family classic, and it was everything I wanted. The soup broth has a lot of flavor, it’s great by itself though I think the real reason it’s so delicious is the homemade dumplings we pair with it.Try out my grandma’s infamous recipe and let me know what you think!
P.S. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
