Beef and Zucchini

I’ve got an easy dinner recipe for you that you can make in 30 minutes. Are you interested? Not only am I hungry by the time I get home from work and the gym, but I’m also tired, so dinners must be easy and quick. I feel like I’ve been in a dinner rut lately, making the same things over and over again. Worse, I’ve resorted to bagels and cereal a lot more than I care to admit. I needed to find a new and exciting dinner. A few years ago I shared a recipe for stuffed zucchini, which is …

Spinach and Feta Turkey Meatballs

I haven’t made meatballs in ages. My husband was surprised to find me in the kitchen cooking meatballs last weekend.  It’s not my thing because I’m picky and not usually impressed with the final outcome.  (Also, I hate mixing meat with my hands.  Blech.)  However, I love feta cheese and spinach so when I saw this meatball recipe I thought this might be a winner and I was right.  I asked my husband if he liked them and he said “I could eat 12 of these right now.” Yup, these are a winner. These meatballs have a lot of great flavor …

Apple Pie Crumble for Two

Guys, I have the most delicious mini dessert for you. My husband loves pies so I wanted to bake him some kind of pie for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t want to bake a normal size pie for just the two of us because I didn’t want an entire pie lingering around. Don’t get me wrong, pie is delicious, but my waistline would not be happy with me. These personal sized pies are SO delicious. My husband said that I should have made a normal size because he wanted to enjoy the leftovers. Womp, womp. I actually agree with him, but …

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Guys, this chicken is ridiculously delicious. If you know me or are familiar with my blog then you know that I’m not the biggest fan of chicken.  I won’t bore you with the details again, but just know where I’m coming from when I say that I’m blown away by this teriyaki chicken, especially because me and chicken don’t get along very well. This chicken is exactly what it sounds like.  You’re baking chicken in a homemade teriyaki sauce.  The sauce is amazing.  It’s a traditional sweet and salty Asian sauce with garlic and ginger.  I definitely recommend using fresh ginger …

Beef Tacos

I’m throwing a taco party. Seriously, doesn’t a taco party sound like so much fun?!  You can set up a buffet with a whole bunch of taco ingredients and let everyone make their own tacos.  We had a taco party for 2 at home this past weekend and the only thing missing was the loud music. Usually we use a pre-made taco seasoning mix to flavor our taco meat (depending on the day, we use beef, ground turkey, or ground chicken).  However, lately I haven’t liked it.  Maybe my taste buds are changing or maybe the bottle is old.  Whatever the reason, I was …
