All it took was a couple of recent trips to Ikea and reading the book A Man Called Ove (pronounced Oovay) for me to crave some good ol’ Swedish meatballs! Now, I don’t think I’ve ever met a meatball I didn’t like, and this recipe below is absolutely no exception. My family devoured this one-dish dinner, and it even had my 9-year-old asking for thirds. And luckily, this is another easy one that can be thrown together in no time at all on any busy weeknight. But if you’re really smart, you’ll double it and enjoy the leftovers for lunch! :) Swedish Meatballs Servings: 4 Print Ingredients 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil 1/2 cup minced onion 1/2 pound ground beef 1/2 pound ground pork 1/4 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 pinch allspice 5 large carrots peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour 1 1/2 cups broth beef, chicken, or veggie 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce salt and pepper to taste Instructions In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Cook the onions while stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, 2 or 3 minutes. Dump the cooked onions into a large bowl along with the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and spices. Mix well by hand and form into 1 1/2 inch meatballs. Turn the skillet to medium high and add the meatballs and carrots. Cook until the meatballs are brown and almost crispy on all sides, about 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over top and cook while stirring for another minute to allow it to absorb. Pour in the broth, 1/2 cup cream, and soy sauce and bring to a boil while scraping the brown bits off the bottom […]
Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
This easy one-pot chowder is quick enough for a weeknight dinner but tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant. Real food doesn’t have to be complicated!
We sure do love cinnamon rolls (who doesn’t?). But the way they’re typically made (i.e. FULL of sugar!) they resemble dessert much more than breakfast…
Every December I get together with my closest group of mom-friends (which originally started as a playgroup over a decade ago!) for a holiday cookie exchange party. This year I took these Whole-Wheat Ginger Snaps.
These cookies would be great as an after-school snack, a throw-in for the lunchbox, or even doubled up for a different on-the-go breakfast. And by doubling up, I mean that you may want two. Why not?!
I’ve got a yummy little snack to have on hand while you’ve got guests in town (or will be traveling) this week … Maple Pecan Bars! These won’t last long.
This recipe for Wild Mushroom and Brussels Sprouts Quesadillas is such a perfect one-dish healthy meal for fall! And if you’re feeling up to it, double the recipe because the leftovers make a pretty awesome lunch.
After a couple attempts, my husband – and the kids too – have given this Creamy Lentil Lasagna two thumbs up, and I’m excited to share it with you today. My 4th grader even ate the leftovers for breakfast if that tells you anything.
If you’re a fan of fall flavors, then you’ll love these Whole-Grain Pumpkin-Spiced Waffles! And if you have a electric donut maker, this same batter works in there, too.
Chocolate pudding used to be a regular thing for me as a kid and also for my kids before we cut out all highly processed food. This recipe for Homemade Chocolate Pudding only takes 5 minutes to make, and it’s a treat that’s definitely worth it!
