Delicious Baked Turkey Bites

Turkey bitesMy toddler was crazy about processed turkey bites from Target. I wasn’t thrilled about them, especially the sodium. So I experimented and created my own that she just loves! As do my husband and I.

The picture is from a slightly earlier, less amazing, batch, but you get the idea. I make them pretty small – one or two bites for an adult or 4-5 bites for a toddler.

Warning – these are pretty addictive… my husband, toddler and I went through most of a batch today!

Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

Inspired by this Cabbage and Feta Salad, I’ve created my own go-to, easy, delicious salad! Cabbage, Feta, Bell Pepper, and Green Onion Salad

This has become something of a staple for me – I’ll make it for weeks and weeks in a row, sometimes. It’s easy to make, especially if you buy items pre-cut. It’s delicious. It’s (relatively) healthy, and filling if you eat enough of it. I love taking a large container of it into work. It keeps well for about 4-5 days, depending on the cheese.

Vegetarian “Tikka Masala” Dish

This is based on this Skinny Chicken Tikka Masala recipe, but with on what I had on hand (and with veggies in place of chicken). Mom, this one’s for you 😉 Continue reading

Delicious Baked Crab Rangoon

Baked Crab Rangoon RecipeI recently had a very successful dinner party of 7. The food was all Asian-inspired, mostly because I really wanted an excuse to make this recipe. Most of the food was from the freezer section of Trader Joe’s, but I made this and a few other items I may write about.

7 people ate all 48 crab rangoon in a fairly short period of time, which I found pretty impressive. Admittedly, I think my husband and I alone accounted for half of the 48, but that still leaves about 5 each for the rest, so I think it’s safe to say they were a hit!

I’ve actually made this three times, though the first two times were just me experimenting (and eating the results of my experiments), refining it a bit each time. I based it on this recipe from Gen Foodie and this one from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. Continue reading
