This Braised Asian Meatballs and Cabbage dinner is the epitome of quick. You can pull it together in just 15 or 20 minutes with only a handful of dirty dishes left for you when you’re done.
After some experimenting, I’m excited to share my own super easy version of this Asian-inspired dish made in one of my all-time favorite kitchen appliances, my slow cooker!
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.
We had our annual Holiday Dinner over the weekend with our lovely team, and it was a fun time as always. I provided the main dish – Asian Glazed Fish – and here is the recipe along with some other cooking inspiration.
These Pork and Peach Kabobs turned out to be a huge hit, and, even if peaches aren’t yet available where you live, this simple teriyaki glaze would be fabulous just on the pork or almost anything else you want to throw on the grill.
This is a fun twist on lettuce wraps that will impress your family (and company) for sure! Plus, since lentils are one of the fastest cooking pulses (see below) and it takes just minutes to cook shrimp, this could easily be a weeknight meal.
The UN has declared 2016 to be the International Year of the Pulses. We are proud to be an ambassador of this issue, so you can look forward to a series of recipes. First up is Spinach Chana Dal, otherwise known as yellow lentils with spinach.
This Tandoori Chicken recipe was a perfect fit for the main course at our Indian themed team holiday dinner. My whole family gobbled up the leftovers. This one is definitely going to be a new staple at our house.
This Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken dinner is another super easy one that will have your house smelling amazing by the end of the day. And there’s nothing wrong with getting out of your dinner rut with these tasty Moroccan flavors.
This recipe is by far the new favorite muffin in our house. Move over blueberry, zucchini, and even pumpkin – these are so deeelicious and could be eaten with breakfast, lunch, or even dinner (maybe as a side to some fall soup?)! Plus for those that are looking for cupcakes for little ones (i.e. smash cake) I would totally top one of these off with some homemade unsweetened whipped cream and call it a day. This would be perfect for baby! And if you prefer to avoid honey for your really little ones I think 100% pure maple syrup would work just fine as a substitute.
Like most people who often cook from scratch, I am just used to peeling and chopping all my own vegetables, making my own dough, and – not to be overlooked – doing lots of dishes! So when I recently decided I’d like to try making a “real food” coleslaw dish, I looked at the green and purple cabbages in the produce section of the supermarket and thought 2 heads of cabbage was an awful lot to buy (and chop up) for one small colorful dish of coleslaw. I asked the produce manager if he could cut the cabbages in half for me when he pointed me in the direction of pre-cut, bagged cabbages just for the purpose of making coleslaw – duh! I am so used to not being able to buy “convenience” food anymore that it didn’t even dawn on me to buy these ingredients pre-cut and ready to go. What a time saver (and a more appropriate amount of food)!
