Calling All Cooks…

During the winter months, nothing sounds better than a hot meal! I thought I’d share a few recipes that make it into the rotation around our house quite often.

Our Favorite Appetizer: Turkey Wontons

These things are the easiest to make and I could eat them all in one sitting. They are so addictive. These are fun to bring to a party and I’ve even made them for dinner. Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb. Turkey Sausage
  • 1 cup Ranch
  • 1 cup sprinkle cheese
  • 1 package wontons

Preheat your oven to 350. Spray a cupcake tin with baking spray. Fill each tray with wontons. Set them in so that they become a cup for your filling. Put them in the oven for five minutes. In a bowl mix your ingredients together. When the wontons have baked for five minutes take them out and fill each wonton wrapper with a dollop of your sausage mixture. Put them back in the oven for another ten minutes. And voila! You have yourself a tasty snack! Other recipes ask you to add olives if you’re looking for a little something extra. I, personally, detest olives and can’t stand the sight of them and these wrappers taste heavenly without them. Picture 50Our Favorite Chili: Turkey Zucchini Chili

I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com a couple years ago and LOVE it! It’s very healthy and delish! I love making an enormous pot of chili and eating leftovers for days. Bake up some Jiffy cornbread for the perfect (unhealthy) side to this warm treat. Here’s a link to the recipe: Terrific Turkey Chili Picture 52Easy and Versatile Entree’: Shredded Mexcian Chicken

This chicken can be used in so many different ways. Matt loves making it into a lettuce wrap (my extreme healthy eater). You can do tacos, taco salad, nachos, etc. It’s so easy to make too, especially if you have a Kitchen Aid mixer. You just do some simple prep work, throw it in the crock pot and come home 4 hours later to a house that smells like onions and a delicious meal. :) Here’s a link to the recipe: Crock-Pot Tex-Mex ChickenPicture 66Our Only Dessert: Warm Cinnamon Apples

We are not much of a dessert family, typically opting for a square of dark chocolate or a trip to Yolotti, but we have enjoyed one healthy option. We like to put some apples in the oven, cover them with stevia and cinnamon until their soft and hot. I have to say they are MUCH more enjoyable when paired with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can also add nuts, raisins, SUGAR, etc. So, here’s a recipe for that: Bourbon Baked ApplesPicture 67So there you have our winter recipes that top the list! Hope you venture to try some yourself.

    I make those sausage wontons too! Only with a package of ranch dressing mix and sour cream instead of the actual dressing. They are perfect to take to parties as an appetizer.

    Here is the link to one of our favorite recipes that Brian’s mom makes: http://brianandkarabeam.blogspot.com/2012/08/chicken-wild-rice-casserole.html
    It’s one of Brian’s favorites and makes enough for plenty of leftovers too :)
