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.

Making and Decorating Sugar Cookies

It’s the time of year when everyone starts making cookies. Even people who bake nothing else the rest of the year will sometimes get in on this. What I don’t understand is buying the dough pre-made, though. The absolute worst part is rolling out the dough. Making it is fairly simple and easy with a mixer. Cutting out shapes and baking them is fun and straightforward. Decorating is obviously the best part. But rolling? Ugh. I would gladly have a tool that eliminated that step for me. Anyone else agree? I know there are spritz cookies but my mom and I would make them and have the darndest time trying to get the cookies to push out of the tube. So, yeah, not a helpful tool. Unless we just had bad luck or a bad tool?

“Grilled” Chicken with a Mango Glaze

When I see grill recipes, I usually just ignore them because we don’t have a grill. I don’t know when we will get one, so I have to wait. But then Lisa came over and cooked some chicken for us with a technique in the oven close to grilling. We loved it, and I decided to try it myself with this recipe I came across. Now, of course, I had to be sick when I made it. Ugh. So the first time I ate it I had no idea what it tasted like because my nose was completely congested. I could taste the tender meat (buttermilk marinade overnight will do that), but that was it.
