Skillet Sesame Chicken

What are some favorite recipes? Ones that I can make during the week. Often, we have leftovers during the week, but I like being able to make one or two simple meals that are fresh but easy. This is definitely an easy meal that tastes really good.

 

I’ve made other recipes with sesame chicken but I like how you can take the same or similar ingredients and make something that seems so different.

German Pancake

Once again I am bringing a breakfast food we had for dinner…because that is what we often do around here. I’ve gotten around to making more of them for brunch on the weekend, but sometimes it is easier for dinner when I can be louder while cooking (for lunch, the Chiplet is often napping until right before we eat, so I wouldn’t be able to do things like use a blender/etc. This recipe doesn’t look like much, but it was tasty and enjoyed by all of us.

Meatball Marsala

I decided to share another meatball recipe with you to make this a meatball week. These meatballs are awesome because it really gives you the same idea as a chicken marsala but with beef, and to me they feel easier even though the work is similar. There is something so fun for me with making meatballs. The Fudgelet helped make them with me.

Meatballs with Soy-Ginger Glaze

I’m still playing catch-up on here. This recipe was one I made back in March, but to be honest, it’s kind of nice. I can look back and be reminded of recipes I want to make again. This was an easy recipe and you could follow the original recipe to do ground turkey, but we prefer ground beef.

Baked Pasta with Mushrooms, Sausage, and a Cream Sauce

Here is a dish I was able to make while having to watch both kids on a weeknight. It was delicious and well-liked by everyone. K asked if we could have it again soon, so maybe on the next cold weather day. I really liked the crispy topping with the creamy mushroom sauce.

Sausage Risotto with Balsamic-Roasted Shallots

Here I am with another risotto recipe trying to convince the Fudgelet that risotto is delicious. K and I really liked this, and the Fudgelet ate it, but he was still complaining some. I don’t get it…he likes rice and sausage, he likes them together, and he likes congee which is basically a Chinese version of risotto. Oh well. Anyway, the adults loved it and he ate it regardless.

Breakfast Puff Pastry Packets

Today is a simple recipe that was inspired by some puff pastry recipes I found. I ended up doing my own using some Trader Joe’s dough I had stashed away. If you haven’t tried their puff pastry dough, you should. It’s only available around December, as far as I know, and not only is it a great price but it tastes really good because it is all butter like the DuFour kind. But for whatever reason, I like this one better and have had better luck with it. I didn’t realize it was a limited edition kind of product the first year, so the second year I stocked up!
