New Recipes

Some things I have made in the past several days:

Slow Cooker Hawaiian Meatballs
I get a lot of recipes from Six Sisters' site. This one, I think, is a keeper. It's not Paleo but it was somewhat healthy. Next time I won't use as much brown sugar or I'll use agave nectar instead. I chose turkey meatballs and they were delicious. I also did not use the crock pot. It's only a 4-5 hour slow cooked meal and for work days I would need for it to be a 8-9 hr slow cooked meal. I made the dish on the stove and it took 25 minutes.

Revolutionary Mac & Cheese
I made this dish for O last night and it was delicious! Cooking two cups of pasta in two cups of milk without having to use a colander was interesting. The mac and cheese turned out super creamy from the milk getting so thick near the end. I added just a smidge of the dijon mustard and the flavor added a nice tang to the dish. I will be making this again and again. We buy Annie's mac and cheese for O and it's supposedly better than Kraft, but this recipe is more healthy just because I'm not giving her a prepackaged food.

Man Pleasing Chicken
The title of the recipe cracks me up. I made this dish on Sunday night to prepare chicken breasts for our work week of lunches. I would make this again. It has a great flavor. It definitely has a honey mustard feel to it.

Gluten Free & Grain Free Chocolate Granola
I made this the other night and K and I had a bowl of it this morning with our green smoothies. I must say this had a great taste and it was a great substitute for cereal. I would definitely make this again. K requests a sugary cinnamon flavor for next time. I accept the challenge!
