    Mini Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes-crop-vert

    Who said cupcakes should only be served as a dessert with chocolate, vanilla and some other sweet ingredients? Well, they make for a perfect appetizer as well if you combine the ingredients in the right way.
    Take for example, these chicken pot pie cupcakes, presented by Heather: many of us are a sucker for chicken pot pie as this is a real comfort food, and the fact that with only few ingredients and few time you can make an amazing appetizer makes you wanna try them even more.
    I have done them for New Year’s eve party and everyone enjoyed every bite of them! :D

Healthy Skillet Lasagna

Healthy Skillet Lasagna

 

I never thought of the idea of deconstructed Lasagna, yet I must say it sounds really tempting! The fact that the ricotta cheese is replaced with cottage cheese is a big plus in my opinion, since I like saltier cheese, and ricotta is a too sweet for my taste.

What is much more interesting for me is that this is a much more lighter lasagna version, with one portion having less then 400 calories and it does look absolutely delicious. And the idea of preparing the lasagna in a skillet is just amazing!

Three Mushroom Ginger Chicken

Three Mushroom Ginger Chicken

 

I don’t know how Chinese this mushroom ginger chicken is, but it really make my think of Chinese food and what I have tasted in Chinese restaurant or fast food. Maybe this is because of the ginger-chicken combination and the fact that 3 different types of mushrooms are used: shiitake mushrooms, oyster mushrooms and swiss brown mushrooms.
Add some red bell pepper and some spring onion for more flavors and you got yourself a really interesting and delicious dinner or lunch.

 

Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chip Cake

Peanut Butter Chip Cake

 

If you will read what ingredients are used for this peanut butter chip cake you will be very very very surprised: sauerkraut and peanut butter :D. My first reaction was to read again the list of ingredients, I could not believe my eyes such combination is possible, but I was intrigued and I continued reading.  This way I found out that the taste of sauerkraut will not be tasted in the final product, and the sauerkraut  is used basically for keeping the cake moist.  The sweetness of the peanut butter will eclipse the sauerkraut, so you will not taste it at all. Also the chocolate chips will sweeten even more the cake.
I must confess I am very very curious to try and make this cake…and I will give my friends to taste it without telling them that sauerkraut is one of the ingredients :D

spinach lasagna roll ups

spinach lasagna roll ups

I have in my kitchen some lasagna noodles for a while now, and now I have found an interesting lasagna recipe I will use them properly. :)
I found this spinach lasagna recipe visiting the website below, which by the way has very interesting and delicious recipes, and I was intrigued by the proposed combination: lasagna with spinach and cheese. I like the idea of no meat in a lasagna, but as the author of the website says, you can use whatever combination you like for this lasagna recipe.
It will take a while to bake, but other then this the recipe seams pretty simple and looks amazing.
I also have some garlic bread in my freezer, bought from Lidle, so very good timing for me to make this recipe, since I have almost all I need in my kitchen already.

I must confess I am not a big fan of pork, but it is a common ingredients used in a lot of kitchen. Sometimes pork is cooked also in my kitchen, but the cook is my boyfriend who like pork based recipes and by the way, is a wonderful man cook! :)
So this recipe is a meal I intend to prepare for him, but I am sure I will taste a little bit as well since it does look delicious.
What is great about this pork chops recipe is that you need only a few ingredients to make it and it will be done soon enough (in about 30 minutes).
I think I will add a bit of ginger to the sauce for more flavor, but other than this I will not change anything to it.
If you follow the link below you can find the ingredients, and step by step instructions for this pork chops recipe. I know I will follow it step by step :)
