After that luxurious hamburger dinner last night, I needed to feel healthy today. I had some leftover corn tortillas and pantry ingredients to make a spicy hummus. The kids love it too! The Smoky Hummus recipe includes a spice blend from www.spice-appeal.com called Vindaloo - its an Indian spice blend that contains mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ...
First and foremost, weelicious is about recipes for kids -- or at least that was the intention when I started this website for little ones almost four years ago. I dreamt of coming up with meal ideas that would appeal to kids and inspire them to eat foods that are not only good for them, but that taste delicious at the same time. Something has happen along the way, though. I've realized that we're all kids at heart and even adults love the idea of food that comes in interesting shapes, has bright colors, unique flavors or an engaging aspect to them. So, did I make these Italian Aspargus Sticks for: my kids or me and my hubby? The kids and I had...
Jamaican Jerk Chicken rocks my world. It rocks my world no matter hows its served... over rice, in a salad or in a quesadilla. I think its safe to say that I love Jamaican jerk seasoning. The Jamaican Jerk seasoning
This is a fabulous potato soup recipe. I have been making this for years. It is an recipe from a restaurant called The Machine Shed. I am always asked to make it by my family as well as for big gatherings. We also have it on Halloween every year before the kids go Trick-O-Treating. Our local store makes individual bread bowls that are orange and look like pumpkins. They love the soup in these festive bread bowls. It is a bit of a time consuming recipe to make, but well worth it once in awhile.
Whenever there's a seasonal item at Trader Joe's like pumpkin puree, I get so excited that I lose control and end up buying at least 10 cans of it. Individual Pumpkin Cheesecakes, Pumpkin Milkshakes, Pumpkin Seed Cookies, Pumpkin Waffles....those are a few of the things I love to make with pumpkin puree, just to give you a hint of my obsession with it. In general, I try not to eat a lot of canned foods, but if there's one thing that is simply easier and tastier to get from a can, it's pumpkin puree. Roasting and pureeing an entire pumpkin, is a time consuming task that I don't recommend doing, especially when their are a couple of very good...
I don’t love boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They rank among the ingredients that, as a recipe developer by profession, I see well enough in my work life that I would rarely — if ever — bring home in a grocery sack of my own choosing. Poaching chicken breasts in milk, however, is a very simple way to enhance the cut’s texture and flavor through tender, gentle cooking that ends with tucking it into a bed of noodles. Watch the milk carefully to ensure it never visibly simmers — the key to this recipe’s success is taking usually quick-cooking ingredients and slowing down the tempo to find their softer side.
When you call Dorie Greenspan to say you’re coming over, this is what she bakes. “It takes longer to preheat the oven than to put these cookies together,” she wrote to me. “I love them for a million reasons, but chiefly because they're a simple pleasure that can be shared on the spur of the moment.” She includes a perfectly round variation in her book using muffin tins (and plenty of baker's spray to help them break free), but we preferred the ease and charm of the freeform version. Adapted slightly from Dorie's Cookies (Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016).
I was really excited when I got my assignment for Secret Recipe Club this month. I have been following Heather over at Fit Mama Real Food since before she had her adorable son Hunter. Our little boys are just about a month apart so it's fun to see how he is growing and changing compared to my little guy and of course, I love seeing her recipes! They are always easy and healthy which is exactly what I'm looking for while trying to wrangle a crawling baby who is more interested in the dog, the outlets and the computer wires than his 1573180 toys! 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts Salt and pepper 1/2 cup honey 1/4 cup soy sauce, low-sodium 1 onion, small, diced 2 Tablespoons ketchup 1 Tablespoon sesame oil 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1 Tablespoon cornstarch 2 Tablespoons sesame seeds Directions: 1.

It has been cold, windy and snowing this last week. That combined with Christmas coming has inspired me to post some Christmas and snow worthy recipes. This fudge recipe fits the bill nicely. Later I will be sharing a recipe
Cabbage is a satisfying vegetable to grow in the garden like carrots and parsnips. It is relatively undemanding and available from July on in the garden. In the fall after hard frost, when you have harvested everything from the garden, it will keep in the fridge for at least a month. We consider it a staple, like carrots or onions, that we almost never have to buy.Cabbage, by many, is considered a poor man's vegetable and thus there are millions of recipes from around the world for wonderful cabbage soups. The following was inspired by the Frugal Gourmet Cooks with Wine, with my adaptations.
