Spicy Meatball Soup

spicy meatball soup

Summer isn’t exactly soup season, but that doesn’t stop us from eating it every so often.  I was browsing through the Food Network Magazine when I came across the Moroccan Meatball Soup.  So, I tweaked the recipe to include the ingredients I had on hand and it became Spicy Meatball Soup. It looked fantastic, but I didn’t have harissa on hand, which would basically be the key ingredient to make it Moroccan.  So, I went to my Sriracha of course.  It’s...

Slow Cooker Basil Chicken Thighs

Sometimes if you have a crazy day, it’s just easiest to dump everything in a slow cooker and turn it on.  It’s magically ready at dinner time! The slow cooker is probably my favorite kitchen item.  During the school year when we have busy days and I know I won’t have time to cook dinner, that’s when I bust this out.  And I don’t know how I would have been able to function when I had a full-time job if I...

Easy Fish Tacos

Who doesn’t love fish tacos.  They are so good and anytime we’re at a decent restaurant and spot them on the menu, I’m getting them.  Everybody needs to have a recipe for easy fish tacos on hand. For so long I hardly made them. They always intimidated me for some reason.  I guess because I didn’t know where to start with the sauce or what fish to use.  But, Sriracha oh how you have change me!  I discovered mixing some of this...

Crispy Garam Masala Roasted Chicken

We’ve always loved roasted chicken, but seriously every time we make it it’s time to scrub the oven with all the splatters plus nearly smoking out the house.  Until I learned how to spatchcock a chicken of course.  Now, that’s the only way we do it and we have roasted chicken more often these days.   No more grocery store rotisserie that we have to heat up in the microwave! I discovered Garam Masala earlier this year and fell in love!  The combination of...

Low Country Boil

Low country boil is a great weekday recipe because it is very quick and easy.  My sister and her husband lived in Savannah, Georgia for a while where I first had this.  She brought in a big container of spices she bought at a farmers market and after a great meal on newspaper I was hooked. It’s become a family staple and when the kids find out we’re having low country boil they get excited.  Always a good thing! I’ve used...

Best turkey burger ever

best turkey burger ever

Years ago, I was watching Oprah and she was raving about this turkey burger she tried.  She said it was the best burger she’d had and even shared the recipe.  I immediately downloaded it and I’ve been making it ever since. But, there were quite a few ingredients in it.   For the sake of time and sanity I’ve streamlined the recipe over the years so it’s much easier, but kept the key ingredients.  I can’t tell a difference in taste at all...
