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.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
