    Baked Turkey Kebabs

    If you guys have been following me for a while now then you know that I never ate ground turkey growing up. I mean NEVER! It was always ground beef in our household until my in-laws introduced me to ground turkey. I then started to experiment with it and have grown to really love it. It’s so much leaner than beef too so its a great substitute. I am super excited to share this recipe with you because you can literally cook it in under 30 minutes and it makes for a healthy wholesome main dish to dinner. Servings: 9 skewers Total Time: approx. 40 min Ingredients 1 1/2 pounds…

    Greek Chicken with potatoes, mushrooms, & olives

    Who doesn’t love Greek food? I know I definitely do. It’s been freezing here in Chicago this month and I thought why not whip up one of my favorite comfort foods.

    Chicken & Okra Saute

    Lately, I have been super busy and quick dinner meals have been getting me through the evening. Saute’s and stir fry’s are my new favorite thing! This chicken & okra saute is delicious! It is also hubby approved. He never liked okra because of its slimy texture but when its cooked like this, you don’t taste that texture as much. I hope you enjoy this quick weeknight meal! Ingredients 2 minced garlic cloves 2 1/2 cup chopped okra (thin slices) 1 lb of diced chicken breast or chicken tenders (skinless & boneless) 2 tbsp of liquid smoke 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tbsp paprika 1 tbsp garlic powder Salt &…

    Middle Eastern Chicken Meatballs

    Okay, I am going to be completely honest with you guys. This is the first time I ever worked with ground chicken and the second time I have ever had it in general. I noticed most Middle Eastern households don’t use ground chicken or ground turkey. I am not sure why but my family always seemed to favor red meat. Well lately, my husband and I have been cutting down on red meat and I figured let me try to work with ground chicken. You guys, it came out great and I went and bought it again this week! This recipe is super simple and delicious too. Servings: approx. 25…

    Homemade Chipotle Bowls

    I haven’t met a person who isn’t the slightest obsessed with Chipotle. It’s one of those fast foods that you don’t feel too guilty about and just hits the spot every single time. Well, I don’t know about you but I rather save up and just start making it at home especially since its so easy and tastes just as delicious. Plus, homemade is always best. I even taped a video on youtube to show you guys how to make and assemble this dish! You guys have to make this! It is so good and makes for the perfect meal prep too.

    Shrimp Scampi

    This is one of the tastiest and easiest recipes I have made yet. It is perfect with spaghetti too and being a carb lover, that is a big bonus! You can’t go wrong with all these flavors. I use seafood stock to extenuate the flavor of the shrimp as opposed to white wine which is what is traditionally used in this recipe. I literally whipped it up in 10 minutes. You cannot go wrong! It is the perfect weeknight dinner meal. Everyone will enjoy it. Check out the video below to see how I made it! Servings: 4 Total time: 10-12 minutes Ingredients 1 lb cooked or raw shrimp deveined…

    Beef Shawarma Plate

    My chicken shawarma recipe is one of the most made and liked on my blog. I decided to do a beef shawarma recipe as well for all you meat lovers. I can’t believe I didn’t make this sooner. Shawarma is extremely popular in the Middle East especially in a wrap, but in this case, I made a shawarma plate to omit the bread making this even healthier than it already is. My husband is doing a low carb diet known as keto; therefore carbs should be to a minimum. This plate is wonderful for those who want a filling healthy dinner for their family. You get your protein, plenty of vegetables…

    Sweet & Tangy Garlic Salmon

    We all need quick weeknight meals. Most of us lead busy lives so dinner ready in under 30 minutes is always a plus. This salmon is absolutely delicious and doesn’t take more than 20 minutes to prep and make! Serve it with a side of rice, veggies and/or salad and you have yourself a complete dinner. I made this the other night on a whim. I bought some beautiful salmon and wanted to use it while fresh. I’ve always loved the sweet and tangy flavors with my salmon so I thought this would be the perfect duo in flavors. I hope you make this for your family and enjoy it!…
