There’s a whole lot of German ancestry in me, so by default, I must love sauerkraut. And luckily, I do…now. But when I was little, I just could not figure out why my mom loved it so much! Why, oh why, did it have to show up on my hotdog? Ugh! But, with age, comes wisdom, and now I see how that fermented cabbage is such a beloved food. But I know seeing outside it’s traditional use as a “sausage topping” is hard, so I’m here to shed light on what to do with all of that kraut! So catch my ideas below along with a recipe for these yummy Sauerkraut Turkey Burgers!
Do you use your slow cooker in the summer? No? Why not? Even though your slow cooker seems to get the most use during the winter, it makes perfect sense to dust it off and use it ALL summer! You should be outside, not in the kitchen! Let your slow cooker do all the work while you soak up the sun! Sounds pretty good, right? Get it ready, because you’ll be needing it to make this yummy 6 Ingredient Slow Cooker Poblano Chicken!
Does your family love pasta? I have 2 big pasta lovers in my household. And I grew up with a brother who could’ve probably housed an entire pound of spaghetti all by himself. Me? Not so much. Sure, I like pasta, but it’s not up there on my favorite foods list. So how do I fulfill my family’s pasta needs? I compromise with pasta salad!
Good morning breakfast lovers! Wait, not you? Well, sit tight because I’ve got a recipe that will turn you into a breakfast-believer. Just how am I going to do that? With cookies of course! But not just any cookies, Banana Oat Breakfast Cookies.
TACOS are one of my absolute favorite foods (it’s a tie with pizza if you must know). I honestly believe that anything can become a taco. And tacos can be for any meal, not just lunch or dinner, but breakfast too or hey, how about a taco snack? YUM! But if you must know, fish tacos are my most favorite, with shrimp tacos following close behind! Hmmm, did someone say Tequila Citrus Shrimp Tacos?
“I’m so hungry!” How many times have you said that or heard that? More than you can count, right? But finding a snack that satisfies that hunger can sometimes be a challenge. But I’ve got the weapon to fight that hunger! My Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites!
What are you serving up for Super Bowl Sunday? I bet you have your favorite right? But did you know that each state apparently has it’s own favorite Super Bowl food too? I had no idea, but it’s true. Illinois apparently loves Buffalo chicken dip and my home state of Indiana relies on pulled pork, but I’m going with Florida’s favorite this year, and making spinach artichoke dip, specifically, my Roasted Poblano Spinach Artichoke Dip.
Don’t cry! I know you’re sad that the “Stop Sloppy Snacking” Challenge has almost come to an end. Honestly, I’m sad too. It’s been fun coming up with snack ideas for you. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed eating these snacks as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them! And don’t worry, this final week of snacks is a pretty tasty way to say good-bye!
Think those fancy Buddha bowls you get at restaurants can’t be made at home? Think again! I’ve created this Easy Southwest Buddha Bowl with YOU in mind. This is a bowl meal that comes together quickly to provide you a nourishing lunch or dinner!
