If you read my last blog, you know how much we love sandwiches (or sliders) at our house.  Another food we are obsessed with is chicken wings.  They are so easy to make and can be pair with tons of different sauces to create different flavor combinations.  I want to share with you 3 new chicken wing recipes that are inspired by Asian and Mexican dishes. Orange Chicken Wings Asian Zing Chicken Wings Taco Chicken Wings   All 3 recipes are pretty simply to whip up and have amazing flavor! First up is Orange Chicken Wings.  Think of the orange chicken dish you order at a Chinese restaurant – these chicken wings have a very similar flavor and are bursting with an orangey-citrus taste.  So good! The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the … Continue reading

Pizza is always on my mind.  I could eat it for every meal of the day, and sometime do.  I have no shame (wink).  I also love tacos but eat them far less frequently.  One night we were deciding what to have for dinner and couldn’t decide between the two, and quite honestly, I can’t blame us.  Both are simple to make, offer a variety of flavor options, and can come together in no time.  Our compromise was to make a Taco Pizza and have the best of both worlds.  The end result was quite tasty!  I mean, as Homer Simpson always says, “Mmmmm…. Pizza”. The recipe can be found here. Start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Unroll 2 tubes of crescent rolls and lay them on the baking sheet, slightly overlapping each other to make them fit.  Pinch the … Continue reading

Tex-Mex Chicken & Zucchini Skillet is a yummy, low-carb, one-pan dinner that’s ready in about 30 minutes, which makes it a great option for a quick weeknight meal.  It’s packed with a variety of vegetables, tender chicken, and lots of flavor! The recipe can be found here. This is how you make it: start by doing all your prep work.  Chop the onion, bell peppers, zucchini, green onion, and cilantro.  Mince the garlic.  Drain and rinse the black beans.  Slice the chicken breasts.  Set everything aside.  This will help you move along a lot faster while cooking because all ingredients are ready to go.  You can even portion out your seasonings ahead of time!

Potato Tacos with Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce are a delight!  They are vegetarian as well as vegan, so they make the perfect meal for Meatless Monday (or any day of the week).  Plus, they are delicious!  And who doesn’t love tacos? The Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce is a wonderful condiment for these tacos.  It add a citrusy, tangy, flavor to the tacos.  You’ll have plenty of leftover sauce as well to enjoy later in the week on more tacos, rice, chicken, salad, etc. The recipe can be found here. Start by making the Jalapeno Cilantro Sauce.  Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and blend on high until smooth; jalapeno, cilantro, garlic cloves, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, vegan mayo, and salt. I like to lightly chop the jalapeno and cilantro, and mince the garlic before adding it to the food processor so it’s easier to blend.  I … Continue reading

Is anyone else questioning why they live in MN with the weather we are having this week?  If you are looking for a quick 30-minute meal, that is also warm and hearty, to get you through the cold weather I have the perfect solution.  It’s Chicken Taco Soup. The soup is loaded with chicken, beans, corn, and tomatoes, and is packed full of flavor.  Most of the item you probably already have in your pantry, so it’s easy to whip together during the week.  It’s the perfect hot meal on a cold winter night! The recipe can be found here. I like to turn this into a one-pot meal (who wants to do more dishes?) so I use a large soup pot for all ingredients.  Start by cooking the ground chicken until done.  Drain any excess water.  I like to use a paper towel to absorb some of the water.  … Continue reading
