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

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
