Halloween is fast approaching – are you ready? We sure are. Halloween is a month-long celebration at our house. We decorate early, spend 31 days gorging on candy, watch every Halloween movie possible, and make some fun themed treats to enjoy. I want to share with you some of my new Halloween recipes and ideas for this year. Each is fairly customizable and will be sure to put your friends and family in a mood to celebrate. My first Halloween idea is for a Char-Spookery board. This is a traditional charcuterie board but with a spooky flair. To be called a charcuterie board, it must contain meat. Otherwise, it’s just a plain old board. What I like about charcuterie boards is how easy they are to put together and how customizable they are. Choose 2-3 meats, 3-4 cheeses, some fruit, nuts, olives, and maybe a few pieces of chocolate, and … Continue reading

We’ve been eating a lot of meatballs at our house lately!  Our idea was to take traditional dishes and turn them into meatballs.  The idea is you get the same great taste but in bite-sized morsels.  The recipes I’m going to share with you today are easy to assemble, wonderful weeknight dinner options, crowd pleasers, and make great leftovers!  The fight at our house is no longer “what’s for dinner” but “which are we going to make first” 🙂 Orange Chicken Meatballs are everything you love about a classic takeout meal!  The flavor is incredible – you will think you are eating orange chicken from your favorite Chinese restaurant but with fewer calories and fat.  I like to serve the Orange Chicken Meatballs on top of Cilantro Lime Rice.  You could serve these with rice, noodles, or as is. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven … Continue reading

Ok jockeys, quit horsing around it’s time for some Kentucky Derby Themed recipes.  I’ve got the Triple Crown of recipes for you now, so bear with me! First up we’re serving Bourbon Meatballs which you’ll find have an exquisite sweet heat to them.  We started with Mom’s Meatloaf, found in our Meat Department.  Place the meatloaf in a bowl and mix together with finely chopped onion then form into 1″ balls (use a small scoop to help make uniform size).  Heat some olive oil in a skillet and brown each of the meatballs, then transfer to a baking sheet and place into your preheated oven (at 350F) until cooked through.   Next up we are going to work on our bourbon sauce. To make the bourbon sauce, you’re going to need apricot preserves, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, hot chili sauce, molasses, water, and bourbon.  Tempting as it may be to drink, you … Continue reading
