Since summer has flown by for most, or gone way too slowly in our case, we find ourselves already getting ready for school to start.  On school mornings, one of the trickiest things I find between running around looking for shoes and making sure the library book made it in the backpack is…is that we’ve gotta find a way to get a healthy breakfast in the belly.  Banana bread is one of the easiest breakfasts for school mornings and a...

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...

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...
