Turkey Meatball Gyro


When I was in Denver visiting my sister I looked for a few quick and easy recipes that were still kid friendly. I found this recipe and decided it would be a great one to try. The meatballs and the yogurt sauce are easy to make and can be prepped earlier in the day. My 2 year old nephew loved the meatballs and yogurt sauce, while my sister and I made the full gyro with all the toppings and enjoyed those too. This is a very easy recipe and if you have any leftovers, they will still be great the next day.

Lemon Scented Rice


A while back my friend hosted a girls night and made a lemon scented rice that I instantly loved. I had never tried a rice with lemon flavor before this, but I was hooked. I should start this by saying I am a huge rice fan. I could happily have basmati rice multiple time a week. This recipe is a fun way to add a little extra kick to plain rice.

Sugar Crusted Blueberry Muffins


I just got home from visiting my sister, where baking and cooking happens much more regularly than at my own home these days (though I probably shouldn't admit that). She has been making these blueberry muffins for a while and they were delicious. Moist and lemony, just the way I like them. She has adjusted the original recipe to add the lemon flavor, which I am always a fan of. If you don't love the lemony flavor in this, you can substituent the lemon yogurt for plain yogurt or sour cream. And you can use half as much lemon zest.

Soba Noodle Salad with Citrus and Soy Dressing


My office was having a potluck, which is fun and great, but I sometime don't know what to bring to these events. It's almost impossible to warm anything up, so I tend to aim for some sort of cold dish. This year I decided to make soba noodles since we already had an abundance of green and kale salads. This recipe was quick and easy and the dish was a hit. I made everything ahead, packed the cut veggies and garnish in individual containers and mixed in the veggies right before everyone went to the buffet, topping the dish off with cilantro and sesame seeds.

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies


Crinkle cookies are one of those sweets I love to eat, but are never really on my radar. My friend and I were having a baking day and she suggested we make a double batch of these. She had tried them before and they were a huge hit. She was 100% right about that. The batter itself will make you question whether these cookies will ever turn out, but they do. Don't be afraid of the wet/semi runny batter. It all comes together for a delicious crinkle cookie in the end.
