Breakfast is the most important meal in everyday diet. It gives you energy and sets you up for the successful day. I strive to find new and interesting recipes and nutritious ingredients every single day, while trying to have fun at the same time.
Have you wanted to find real buttermilk but failed to do so? The recipe for your favorite cookies requires it, but you are unable to find it in the store and don’t know how to make buttermilk? It actually is not that hard at all, and you are about to know everything about buttermilk and how to make it on your own. Grab your pen and paper and let’s get to it!
Why did I call these “poppers”? Because they look just like the rubber poppers you see at kid’s parties and in gumball machines! These bite-size stuffed potatoes boast crispy skin and a tender, cheesy center. They make a great party appetizer and side dish for meat, fish and poultry….
You won’t believe the incredible amount of flavor you get from just a handful of ingredients. The chicken is layered with the flavors of butter, garlic and parmesan cheese, and then it’s roasted until the cheese is nutty and golden brown. And, because fresh garlic is infused into bubbly, creamy butter, you can enjoy the signature garlic flavor without worrying about bits of garlic burning in the oven.
Serve the chicken pops with a vegetable and/or salad on the side for a complete meal. You can also serve the pops as an appetizer for entertaining and kid’s parties. Everyone loves them!
The next time you’re deciding between rice and pasta, opt for pearl couscous instead! It’s an easy and affordable option that brightens up any dinner table. I prefer pearl couscous to regular couscous because the larger “pearls” (actually balls of toasted semolina) create a more rewarding bite. I used tri-color couscous for this recipe (mostly because I thought it was pretty), but you can use regular pearl couscous if you want….
This chewy, garlicky, cheese-stuffed bread is similar to a calzone – but the dough is shaped into a wheel and served with marinara sauce in the middle (for delightful dipping)!! And thanks to store-bought dough, you can assemble the wheel in just minutes.
I like to serve this as a main dish, with vegetables and a salad on the side. If you want, you can serve the wheel as a party appetizer – your guests will adore you!…
An easy and colorful dish that changes the side dish game completely! If you’ve been relegating your side dish repertoire to broccoli, peas and asparagus, it’s time to branch out. Broccoli rabe (also called rapini) is a fabulous way to add color and nutrients to your plate while enjoying something truly unique.
This modern twist on a classic Meatloaf recipe means a slightly reduced meat content, and a definite increase in flavour. The addition of Spinach and beans ensures this meaty meal offers extra fibre and nutrients which will aid digestions and make this an overall healthy alternative to it’s traditional counterpart.
Not only is this Meatloaf recipe a healthy one, it is also super easy to make and can be cooked in a countertop oven slowly on a low heat. The addition of water to the bottom of the oven will ensure the top of the Meatloaf stays moist and doesn’t crack….
