Simple Teriyaki Chicken

Simple Teriyaki Chicken is so easy and quick, it’s barely even a recipe!  However, I wanted to share this super simple way to prepare chicken with you all.  We love to eat it over rice, but it would also be excellent on a salad or even in sushi!  The chicken cooks in less than 15 minutes, and with the use of a sheet of foil, cleanup is a breeze.

Appetizer Enchilada Meatballs

It’s almost the day of the big game! Meatballs are a fun party food, and it’s always nice to find a new way to jazz them up.  I thought it would be fun to make a Mexican-style meatball dipped in enchilada sauce… Put them on a tortilla triangle, top with a cilantro leaf, and you’ve got Appetizer Enchilada Meatballs!

Salt & Pepper Chicken

Salt & Pepper Chicken is yet another dish that I had to learn how to make after working at an Asian/Fusion restaurant in college. It flavorful and crispy, and very juicy as it is made with marinated dark meat chicken.  While this was not one of the menu items at the restaurant, our chef, “Ma”, would make it for the staff because she knew how much we enjoyed it.  After much searching online for a recipe, I finally found one that I was able to modify to taste about as close to Ma’s recipe as I think I’m going to get.  If you enjoy bold flavors, I think you will love Salt & Pepper Chicken.

Appetizer Blue Cheese Pizza

I happen to love appetizer pizzas and flatbreads.  You can get a little more adventurous with the toppings than you would with a regular pizza.  Appetizer Blue Cheese Pizza is not just flavorful, it can be put together and on the table in a snap.

Crispy Baked Ravioli

Fried Ravioli are pretty tasty. If you’ve never had them, you should order them the next time you see them on the menu. Or, you can make these Crispy Baked Ravioli at home, and save yourself some money and calories! What I like best about these baked ravioli is that you can bread them ahead of time, and just bake them at the last minute when you’re ready to serve them! They are perfect finger food.
