Indian Chicken Lettuce Wraps: Recipe of the Week

Indian Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Sometimes I want an easy lunch with a bit of a bite.  These lettuce wraps are great because I add a little siracha directly to my portion and the kids get the normal spiced version.  Even better, these have my kids reaching for the lettuce and fighting over who gets the largest leaf.

As life gets busy, I start craving something filling, healthy, and easy to make.  In the spirit of cultural discovery, I joined a Lebanese recipe and cooking group to learn more about my boyfriend and kids’ culture.  We made Lebanese bread and needed something to eat with it.  What better than hummus?

Homemade Granola: Recipe of the Week

Homemade Granola

A couple of years ago, I stopped buying processed foods. Since then I have often missed cereal. So, when I get a craving for something crunchy with a bit of milk, I make granola. It’s easy to make and has so many possibilities. This version was born of my daughter’s newest love from Costco – Kirkland brand Organic Nuts and Fruit mix. It has almonds, cashews, dried blueberries and cranberries, and pumpkin seeds. While I whipped up this batch on Saturday, my daughter did some experimenting of her own. Homemade Ritz crackers with cheese and peanut butter. I will not be blogging about that one, but she swore it was delicious.

Easy Breakfast Casserole with Sausage, Hash Browns, and Eggs

How is it mid-March already? Seriously. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. I love Irish fare, but it’s often labor intensive to prepare so I let someone else {my mom or a fave restaurant} prepare it for me! HAHA My first thought for this post was “Bangers and Colcannon” {sausage and mashed potatoes} … but with a twist! How many of us overindulge with our food choices and adult beverage intake? “You gotta have green beer on St. Pat’s Day!” I don’t know about you, but I love a comforting breakfast after a night of imbibing. This easy sausage, egg and hash brown casserole is simple to make, and always a crowd-pleaser! It can be made the night before and baked the next day for breakfast.

Butternut Squash Soup

I try to pack my lunches most days. In the summer, that usually means salad. In the winter, soup. It may not feel like winter, but I have definitely been on a soup kick. This is one of my all-time favorites. My husband refuses to eat any kind of soup, but thankfully my daughter will scarf it right down.

Pork Egg Roll In A Bowl: Recipe of the Week

Recipe-OTW.jpg

I try to mix things up a little for the family.  I don’t follow the paleo diet, but I kept hearing people talk about “crack slaw” and was intrigued.  This recipe is based on a crack slaw recipe.  It struck me as a neat idea, although my family was skeptical. My husband was pretty sure that the best part of the egg roll had to be the crunchy wrapper, but I thought otherwise and the family inhaled this one (no leftovers).
