  • Not even October, but I'm 100% ready for Halloween. Sooo my Saturday night plans? The "Black Widow Smash" (blackberries, rosemary, lemon, a couple dashes of orange bitters, tequila, and topped off with sparkling water...spooky, but GOOD) and a Halloween movie marathon. But what's your favorite?? Harry Potter and Hocus Pocus are my top 2 ⚡️Grab the recipe link in my profile👻 #spookycocktailsaturday #Halloween
  • Chai Spiced Apple Ricotta Galette. I know everyone is already onto pumpkin everything, BUT I'm embracing apple season. Enter the this apple galette --> flaky pastry + ricotta cheese (promise it's not weird, but actually so good) + honeycrisp apples (the best), and chai spiced maple syrup (which is addicting). It's EASY. It's DELICIOUS. And you should enjoy with ice cream on top. Obviously. Late night Friday dessert? Saturday afternoon baking? Doesn't matter just make this one soon. Shared the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile). PS. thinking about making this on my stories, should I?? #f52grams #buzzfeast #autumnrecipes #fall #CLkitchen
  • Weeknight 30 Minute Coconut Curry Chicken Meatballs…with spicy mango salsa. Not your average bowl of meatballs, but better? Just depends on what kind of mood you are in. BUT if you are looking for a cozy curry, this one is GOOD --> pantry ingredients + 30 minutes + super simple. It's creamy, saucy, a touch spicy and it's even pretty healthy too. So basically you can't go wrong with this bowl of curry. Grab the full recipe below. ...
Add 1 pound ground chicken chicken, 2 green onions, 1 garlic, 1 tsp Worcestershire, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to a bowl. Mix. Coat your hands with a bit of oil, and roll the meat into tablespoon-size balls (will make 15-20). Place on baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes or until the meatballs are crisp and cooked through.Heat 2 tbs sesame oil in a large skillet. Add the 2 shallots, 2 bell peppers, and 1 inch fresh ginger, grated. Cook 5-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in 2-3 tbs Thai red curry paste. Add 1 (14oz) can coconut milk, 2 tbs soy sauce, and 1 tbs fish sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil, add the meatballs and cook until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and stir a handful fresh cilantro or basil.spicy lime mango
1 mango, diced
1 jalapeńo, seeded and chopped
juice and zest from 1 lime
Combine in a bowl.
Serve the meatballs and sauce over bowls of rice topped with toasted coconut + spicy mango. Eat and enjoy :) #eatingfortheinsta #feedfeed #instayum #curry #recipevideo
  • Slow Cooker French Wine and Mustard Chicken. It's not even October yet, but I'm full on ready for the slow cooker recipes. This one is surprisingly SO GOOD. I say surprisingly because the mustard part tends to throw me off. BUT. This sauce. It's EVERYTHING. Made with white wine, Dijon mustard, fresh herbs, and parmesan cheese, it is creamy, a little cheesy, super flavorful, and best served over mashed potatoes...or maybe those that creamy mashed cauliflower from last week? You can’t go wrong. AND? Because I like to give you guys everything you could possibly need, I've also include Instant Pot and stove-top directions too.
