I've never been a fan of ground beef and have horrible memories of gagging down dinners my mom would make, when I was little. Now that I am older, I use ground chicken/turkey rather than ground beef. It's healthier and tastes just as good. Ground chicken is great at taking in the flavours of ingredients it's mixed with. The only tricky thing is, it can dry out if you're not careful. To prevent that, I seared the meatballs, to lock in the juices, before I finished cooking them in the glaze. The result was tender and juicy meatballs, full of great flavour!






Asian Glazed Chicken Meatballs


1 1/4 lb ground chicken
2 Tbs garlic flavoured hoisin sauce
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp seasame oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
13 seasame flavoured rice crackers, crushed
1 tbs minced green onion

Glaze:
1 small can (8 oz) pineapple tidbits, with juice
1/4 C honey
1 tsp rice vinegar
2 Tbs ketchup
2 Tbs soy sauce
1 Tbs worcestershire sauce

In a bowl, combine the ground chicken, hoisin sauce, ginger, seasame oil, salt, pepper, crushed rice crackers and green onion. Using a small scoop, portion out meat and roll into balls.

Preheat 2 Tbs olive oil, in a large non stick skillet, over med high heat. Add in meatballs and brown on all sides, shaking pan to roll meatballs, every few minutes. Remove from pan to a plate.

While meatballs are browning, mix the pineapple tidbits, honey, ketchup, soy sauce, rice vinegar and worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. Once meatballs are browned add glaze to skillet and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Once glaze is bubbling, return meatballs to pan and toss to coat. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 7-10 minutes, until meatballs reach an internal temp of 165 degrees. Serve over white rice, or with side of choice.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

8 Ways to Have a Fun and Delicious Halloween at Home

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
