If there’s one thing you make this Thanksgiving, it should be these sweet potatoes with a drizzle of dijon and maple. It’s super quick, easy and absolutely delightful.
Also, try this Herb Roasted Potatoes for a quick and easy side dish.
I have way too many people in my family who want that drumstick… me being one of them. Since our Thanksgiving dinner includes 22 people, 1 turkey is never enough for the dark meat lovers. So I always end up making a few chickens, this way there’s enough dark meat for everyone.
Since I get a few chickens to work with, I always make a couple different flavors along with the classic roasted chicken. This year, I’m making this spicy roasted chicken. It’s marinated in a spicy mixture over night for the most flavorful chicken. It’s an awesome twist to the classic roasted chicken.
I have made many variations of chicken salad, as chicken is like a blank canvas that picks up any flavor you add, but this is hands down my favorite recipe.
This is a fool proof, no fail, crowd pleasing recipe that is can be served in many different ways. I’ve used this recipe to make sandwiches, as well as appetizers served on endives and sliced cucumbers. It’s a little spicy, but the addition of the dried cranberries really balance off the spiciness. I also add cucumber to add some crunch and act as a cooling agent.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this recipe 🙂
This may look like your regular ol’ fried rice, but don’t be fooled, this is packed with unique, complicated flavors. For starters, it’s very fragrant with spicy chili and minty thai basil leaves. But fear not, I’m here to assure you that it’s not that complicated to make at all!! And it takes only about 15 minutes to make.
You all know how I’m not into cold food… cold salad, cold noodles, cold cuts, yep I dislike them all. BUT PROSCIUTTO, now that’s a whole different story.
Now I can enjoy prosciutto straight outta the packet or in any which way served. However, paired with something sweet and mild cheese, it’s just amazing. This sandwich takes about a few minutes to put together and tastes like heaven on crusty buns.
Flaky, gooey, sweet…. best served warm, fresh outta the oven 🙂 Perfect semi-homemade treat!
Enough said… check below for the recipe.
I’m not gonna lie, I’ve had this in place of a real meal :/ #dontjudgeme. I figure, this gives me my daily serving of greens and protein… so why not? 😉
This is a killer menu item for a party. And with football season around the corner this should be everyone’s go to. Trust me you’ll never miss a frail corn chip again!
Sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, basil…… how can you go wrong with that?
This is definitely my go to recipe when it comes to pasta. With just a few ingredients, this pasta is uber flavorful. I’ve made this for a crowd or just lunch by myself and it just never disappoints. It’s so light and just simply delicious.
Sangria…. possibly one of my favorite summer drinks (and fall, and winter…. 🙂 )
Of course as a busy city girl, many of my recipes are semi-homemade. This isn’t any different, I use sangria wine instead of red wine to get a head start. But when the fresh marinated fruits are added, this stuff is just soul satisfying. I am not ashamed to say that I’ve finished a whole bottle by myself, in one night :/
Another best part about this drink, it’s even better the next day 🙂
This has become my go to side-dish lately. I’m obsessed with it.
To make it easier, I use frozen cauliflower, but you can definitely make it with fresh cauliflower. This pair really well with anything from seafood to steak. I top it off with the caramelized onion for some extra flavors, but it’s just as delicious by itself.
