MISC. MAY!

MISC. MAY!

This is probably going to be the longest blog post I have ever made, but I didn’t make a single “personal” post this month, and thought I would write down a few highlights all in one! The weather warmed up this month, so we’ve been doing lots of fun things outside, and we booked our tickets to GREECE for this coming August! It’s been a good month….

Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Meatballs with Angel Hair

Mozzarella Stuffed Turkey Meatballs with Angel Hair

One of my husband’s all time favorite things to eat in the world is spaghetti bolognese, so when I found this lighter, girlier version of it, I knew he would be so happy! NOT. He actually hates spaghetti with a passion, which is why we probably don’t eat it every day like we used to when we were newly weds, {which is probably why he hates it so much in the first place!} But every now and then I just have to make it! Especially when the meatballs have melted mozzarella cheese inside! My kids loved this meal as much as I did, so I am going to have to make it again soon for sure (sorry Dean!) :-(

Bacon Jam Pizza

Bacon Jam Pizza

My mother in law is a pro at making home-made jam, and her raspberry jam is SO good, that my husband literally refuses to eat any other kind! The other day he wrote on my shopping list: “my Moms home made jam” so I told her about it, and the very same day we had a huge batch of it ready to fill up our freezer! {She’s amazing!} I was also talking to her about bacon jam. I have heard food blogger after food blogger rave about the stuff–and I knew that if everyone loved it that much,  and if it was made from BACON, then Dean was sure to love it! So she also whipped up a batch of bacon jam that night, and what’s funny is that was the one who ended up LOVING it! I’m not even a guy, or a huge fan of bacon! It was just SO full of flavor: smoky, spicy, sweet and salty! I started thinking about all the things I could put it on, and defaulted to a delicious gourmet pizza. I had a hard time knowing what toppings to put on it, so I dipped a few different things in the jam–some things were HORRIBLE; like strawberries! But the red grapes complimented it perfectly. The combination of the bacon jam, cheese, soft pizza dough, bitter lettuce and sweet grapes was just divine! Now I am going to have to learn how to make her home-made raspberry jam, and this bacon jam too!

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

Buffalo Chicken Burgers

My husband loves buffalo chicken, and burgers, so this buffalo chicken burger was definitely one for him! He’s not really a fan of blue cheese so instead I decided to top the burgers with melted cheddar and some ranch coleslaw, which made it extra delicious! I hope you guys enjoy!

Mexican Baked Eggs

Mexican Baked Eggs

Quite some time ago I made a recipe for Oeufs Cocotte {French Baked Eggs} which was so simple and delicious, that when I came across a recipe for Mexican baked eggs on pinterest the other day, I just had to try it. I’m not a breakfast person at all, and TexMex is probably my least favorite cuisine, so I was actually really surprised by how much I loved this TexMex breakfast! Haha. Secretly, the more I make TexMex food, the more I am starting to love it, plus this dish actually made a really great dinner! The combination of melted cheese, fresh lime, and tortillas dipped in soft-eggs was just so good, I can’t wait to make this dish again, maybe even for breakfast this time!
