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 […]
This vegetarian enchiladas recipe is a crowd pleaser – even for those who don’t love mushrooms. My 12-year-old didn’t even notice they were in there once they were smothered with the cheese mixture and yummy sauce.
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.
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.
My grandmother is known for both her Crepes and her “Apple Slices.” And I don’t just mean apples cut into slices. It is what she calls her version of apple pie, and maybe it’s because she has such a big family (soon to be 28 of us!).
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 great light dish for summer that comes together very quickly, especially with the use of frozen corn (instead of boiling fresh corn and cutting it off the cob). If you’re looking for ways to reduce your overall consumption of meat, which is good for both your health and your wallet, this recipe for Tex-Mex Corn Fritters Over Black Bean Salad is a great place to start.
Funny enough, egg noodles are what inspired this beef stroganoff recipe today. I have not had a single egg noodle since we cut out processed food almost 6 years ago!
I love the idea of homemade gnocchi, but it’s a lot of work …this ricotta spinach gnocchi is the perfect quick alternative in my opinion!
This Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake didn’t last long. I had it sitting on a cake plate on the counter for a dinner with friends, and it was amazing how many people immediately said, “Oh, that looks good.” And thankfully it lived up to their expectations.
I’m excited to share this recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies, which is what I made for holiday cookie exchange parties this year.
