Comforting Chicken, Barley, and Carrot Soup

No Comments | Written on February 3, 2015 at 2:36 pm , by

This is THE soup for this awfully cold weather. With barley, chicken, carrot, and a flavorful broth in the mix, it’s a delicious and hearty way to get your vitamins and minerals during these months. This recipe is a perfect way to use a rotisserie chicken, and this is a great replacement for the boring old chicken noodle soup when you’re sick.

Feel free to substitute things like quinoa or noodles in place of the barley, the soup will still be delicious! Make a vegetarian version by omitting the chicken altogether and subbing in vegetable broth instead of the chicken broth.

Asian Lemon Ginger Sticky Wings For The Game

In the spirit of preparing some delicious eats for the football game on Sunday, we thought we’d share one of our new favorite wing recipes with you. Don’t get us wrong, we love the usual bottle of bag of frozen wings + fryer + bottle of barbecue sauce = heaven routine, but sometimes we crave something a little better tasting and better for us. These Asian-influenced chicken wings are fantastic because they lighten things up by baking without sacrificing any flavor or crispiness.

Asiago-Crusted Roast Lemon Asparagus

No Comments | Written on January 23, 2015 at 10:59 am , by

Lemon season is in full swing, and we can’t stop finding new ways to use the citrus. One of our new favorite preparation methods for asparagus involves the humble fruit. This recipe is not only beautiful, but tastes delicious. The asiago crust adds a wonderfully nutty flavor to the side dish, and this recipe pairs perfectly with a broiled chicken breast or roast salmon.

Feel free to modify this recipe however you’d like. The juice from a blood orange in place of the lemon is fantastic, and green beans also work well in this simple and elegant side dish. If you’d like to try another type of cheese, we like a combination of Parmesan and Romano cheese as well.

Crockpot Italian Turkey Meatballs From Scratch

No Comments | Written on January 12, 2015 at 3:13 pm , by

You say meatball, we say too heavy. That’s why we put a spin on the traditional Italian recipe and lightened it up at the same time. Don’t think you lose that from-scratch flavor, either! Plus, you can prepare this recipe in the crockpot, which makes this a perfect time-saving recipe.

If you prefer the taste of a homemade sauce, by all means use it in place of what we recommend! However, we find that the homemade meatball is really what gives it that grandma’s kitchen flavor.
