A Make Your Own Taco Bar takes the hassle out of cooking while hosting a party & guests will love it! It’s perfect for Superbowl, birthday parties & more!
For as many years as I can remember, hosting a Super Bowl party has been a tradition at my house.
Since I love everything game day, from the game itself, to the commercials, to the delicious dips, chips and tacos that come with it, throwing a Super Bowl party has always seemed like the natural thing to do!
While I love to cook, (I think that’s pretty obvious by the whole food blogger thing! 😉 ) I don’t want to miss out on the touchdowns, puppy commercials or half time show by being in the kitchen all day, that’s why I started hosting the “Make Your Own Taco Bar” at my Superbowl Parties a few years ago.
These Honey Mustard Buffalo Meatballs are easy to make on the stove or in a crockpot with a combination of ground chicken and pork. They’re sweet, hot, tangy and perfect as a game day or party appetizer, or served on rolls as meatball subs!
The Superbowl is just 9 days away, time to get that game day menu ready, and I have just the meatball recipe to WOW your friends at this years party!
Last weekend I tested out these buffalo meatballs on my friends that came over to watch the NFL Playoffs. Needless to say, they was a huge hit, like “I’m glad I grabbed one before they were gone in 60 seconds” type of hit! Read the full post here!
These PF Chang’s copycat turkey lettuce wraps, made in only 15 minutes, are prepared with lean ground turkey, making them a healthy & gluten free option!
If you’ve ever been to a PF Chang’s, there’s a 99.9% chance, you’ve had their famous lettuce wraps!
While I don’t frequent many chain restaurants, (I’m lucky to have so many amazing local options in San Diego!) I do have to say that I don’t mind a little PF Chang’s every once in a while, some Chicken Lettuce Wraps, followed by Sweet & Sour Chicken, delish! But, I also love being able to make these recipes at home for a little less money and a lot less calories!
Roasted red peppers add a delicious flavor to this healthy Turkey Bolognese recipe, serve over spaghetti or with zucchini noodles for a gluten free meal.
With a new year, comes new years resolutions to eat healthier.
For me, one of the best ingredients to keep in the fridge to stay healthy is extra lean ground turkey breast. It’s loaded with protein and low in fat and calories, making it a great choice for substituting ground beef in recipes like tacos, meatballs,chili and bolognese!
This turkey bolognese has only 262 calories and 5 grams fat per serving, while it boasts 31 grams of protein per serving. (This recipe makes 4 servings!)
The sauce can be served with traditional pasta, or switch it up and serve the sauce over roasted spaghetti squash or sautéed zucchini noodles to keep it low carb and gluten free!
Roasted sweet potatoes & quinoa are topped with delicious Thai peanut sauce in this easy, healthy, gluten free, vegan buddha bowl recipe!
This popular buddha bowl has been shared over 30,000 times on Pinterest! People rave about the flavor of the dish and how easy it is to make! If you love this bowl, you’ll also love these vegan recipes for Veggie Fajita Rice Bowls and Buffalo Chickpea Buddha Bowls!
While 2016 was the year that the Wall Street Journal claimed “Bowls Are The New Plates“, the bowl trend isn’t going anywhere in 2017! According to the “Pinterest 100”, Buddha Bowls are one of the Top 10 Food Trend Predictions of 2017!
So what exactly is a Buddha Bowl? It’s a healthy bowl filled with a whole grain, such as brown rice or quinoa and raw or cooked veggies, such as sweet potatoes, broccoli or cauliflower. It’s then topped with a healthy sauce or dip, such as hummus, peanut sauce or pesto.
I love the Buddha Bowl Trend because it’s a fun way to play around with different healthy options in the kitchen without eating the same thing over and over! It’s also great for meal prepping. You can easily prepare a few delicious bowls to eat for lunch or dinner throughout the week.
In this recipe, I roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary, garlic, cinnamon, salt and pepper, bringing a ton of flavor to this healthy bowl! I tossed the sweet potatoes on top of cooked quinoa, which adds fiber, protein and a nuttiness to the bowl. Brown rice, farro, couscous, or your favorite grain would also work well!
I topped the bowl with shredded carrots, cilantro, peanuts and most importantly, my famous Thai Peanut Sauce! This recipe makes more peanut sauce than you need for this recipe. Place the remainder of the sauce in a mason jar and store it in the fridge for up to two weeks. And I promise, you won’t be disappointed that you have extra of this sauce on hand!
Give your chicken fajitas a taste of the Caribbean with this tasty recipe for Jerk Chicken Fajitas, made in only 15 minutes for an easy weeknight dinner!
It’s been almost 3 months since our trip to Jamaica and I’m still dreaming of the Jerk Chicken we ate every afternoon by the pool at Couples Resorts!
After arriving home from the trip, I had about 1,564 ideas for recipes to make with Jerk Seasoning, but I decided to start with Jamaican Jerk Beef Patties and gradually work my way through the other 1,563! 😉
This easy slow cooker recipe for Chicken Ragu takes only 10 minutes to prep, then slow cooks all day for a delicious dinner!
