Healthy Baked Falafels Recipe

I love this falafel recipe. We’ve been making them for over ten years. Our kids won’t eat them, but they are great for a date night. We also make them sometimes and nuke some chicken nuggets for the kids. If you make these, you absolutely must make the tzatziki sauce that goes with them. Having them without is like eating plain dry spaghetti noodles. Maybe you like dry spaghetti noodles, but I promise that they’re better with sauce. These are just like that.

This particular chili recipe couldn’t be easier to put together. It simmers for an hour, but the prep is really quick. The finished chili is good, flavorful but … Read more

Roasted Beets with Chicken and Noodles

Besides delicious, I don’t exactly know what to call this recipe. I have mentioned before my love of beets. I grew up eating my Grandma’s homemade and home canned pickled beets. How I love some pickled beets. Our CSA has been bursting with beets this summer, and we were looking for ways to eat them beyond plain old roasted beets. This is what we came up with. It was so delicious that I ate it for every meal (even breakfast) until it was all gone. Print Recipe Roasted Beets with Chicken and Noodles Servings Ingredients 12-15 beets peeled and cut … Read more
