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.πŸ™‚ 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.
