Best Bacon Wrapped Turkey

For the longest time, I got away without cooking during the holidays. My sister-in-law would do Thanksgiving, my parents would do Christmas Eve, and my in-laws would do Christmas Day. All my family and I had to do, was show up with maybe … wine/beer, and bread.

Then, everyone moved out of state and we were left by ourselves. However, I can sincerely count on one hand how many times I cooked a turkey. It can ruin the whole dinner if not cooked right. So, I avoided cooking it on many holidays.  I am sure there are plenty of people out there that feel the same way as I do about turkey. Read More →

Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

This recipe is not your ordinary stuffed bell peppers recipe. You don’t have to mix the meat with rice and cook it with tomato sauce. Whenever my mom made stuffed peppers, she literally simmered the meat the whole day. Back in the days, she didn’t work and didn’t play taxi with us after school to drive us to our after school activities. So, she basically had time to cook these sort of recipes.

Today, where most household have two working parents, nobody has the time to slave over the stove for hours. I work part-time from home and I don’t have time with all of the kids activities. So, this is why I love my crock pot or fast and easy recipes. That way, our family gets to eat home cooked meals every night.  Read More →

The Majic of Goji Berries

Today we are going to explore Goji berries. You’ve probably seen these little red devils popping up more and more frequently in recipes and in the aisles of your grocery stores.

What is a Goji berry?

The Goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that’s native to China. Although relatively new to the U.S. market, Goji berries have been part of Asian herbal medicine for over 5,000 years. Loaded with beta carotene, they are great for your skin. They are packed full of antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and over 20 trace minerals making them a “SUPERFOOD” powerhouse.  Treat Goji berries like a dried fruit.  Toss them in a salad, add them to your trail mix,  oatmeal, or even yogurt.  They pair very well with grains like oats, nuts like walnuts and fruits like strawberries.

Turkey Meatballs

Growing up was meat and potatoes at almost every dinner. Pasta or chicken was not something we ate a lot. So, when I lived on my own, I continued to eat a lot of meat. Until one day, heavy, greasy food started to bother my gallbladder. This is when I started introducing more white meat into my diet. Not only it helped eliminate my gallbladder problems, but it was better on the wallet too.  Read More →
