As our family has moved toward eating more healthy, we are always on the look out for healthy meals, as well as, snacks. This burger recipe is great for both. Make them for dinner one night and then eat the leftovers for a healthy snack paired with a complex carb. We made these two weeks in a row they were so delicious. Try them and see!
Time to say good-bye to boring ol’ chicken breast and hello to it’s fancy cousin – the Red Rooster. Grilled Chicken with Strawberries, Feta and Pecans is sure to be a hit with your family this spring!
Raise your hand if you couldn’t be more ready for grilling season?
How about strawberry season?
I am completely ready for both. Go ahead and try to stop me from enjoying both…at the same time.
There’s a restaurant near where we live that has an entree on the menu called Red Rooster – strawberry glazed chicken with feta and walnuts. It’s pretty much the classic Strawberry Salad turned main dish. It is an excellent way to dress up an ordinary grilled chicken breast and it couldn’t be more simple!
I really like to bulk grill a bunch of marinated chicken breast and use it in different meals throughout the week or bag it up in 2 cup portions to freeze for an easy addition to meals like Balsamic Chicken Noodle Bowl, Chicken Salad Sliders, Bruschetta Chicken Pasta or Quinoa Chicken Fried Rice. I usually grab a bottle of Italian or balsamic dressing (or make my own) and let the chicken marinate for a couple of hours before I throw it on the grill – it’s so easy and keeps the meat tender and amazing.
To make the Red Rooster, you will simply top grilled chicken with strawberry all-fruit spread or jam, sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese and chopped pecans and add sliced strawberries. It’s a terrific combination, one that your family is sure to love. We enjoyed it with baked potatoes and roasted broccoli - deeeelicious!

We have made them multiple times using beef patties, but this last time we decided to use ground turkey. It not only cut back drastically on the fat but also tasted great! After the burgers are cooked to perfection, place them on a toasted bun (if grilling, butter the bun and place face down on the grill to warm). Top with swiss cheese, crisp bacon, and guacamole. You can find a great guacamole recipe here. Use the extra guacamole as dip with tortilla chips and serve with ice cold lemonade!

Why would I want to do that?
Well, it’s cheaper and tastier than buying it from the store. You can buy a bag of carrots for the cost of two jars of baby food and make a whole batch. And really, you don’t make it everyday…you make a batch and use it from the freezer for a couple of weeks and then make another batch.
My sister, Megan, and I both had a baby about the same time. They just turned two (if you remember the Elmo party and Cake Pops). Anyhow, when they were ready to start solids – we both decided that we were going to give making our own baby food a try. The babies both loved it.
We both relied a lot on this site: www.wholesomebabyfood.com – here they have step by step instructions on how to make almost any kind of baby food yourself. You would be amazed at the different combos they suggest…things that you may never think to feed a baby.
I have enjoyed making baby food again with baby #4. She’s a pretty good eater -her current favorite is pumpkin with a dash of cinnamon.
I’m going to walk you through the basic process. There are a couple of things that you need:
There are several different ways to prepare the fruit/veggie – boiling, steaming, baking. So you will prepare it according to your preference. I baked these sweet potatoes because I like the taste better than if they were boiled.
When you are ready to serve, remove what you need from the freezer. Place in a microwave safe container, for 1 cube defrost for 40 seconds. Stir and heat for 10-15 seconds. You will need more time depending on how many cubes you are heating.
You can combine different fruits and veggies to keep things interesting. It’s not hard to take these on the go either. If you take them from the freezer and put them in a container with a lid, they will probably be thawed by the time you need them, even without the microwave.
I was at the store the other day and for some reason ‘pesto’ sounded really good I had had this brand before and loved it so I thought I’d share some great ways to enjoy it!
The label says this great with many things but my two favorite are pretty simple and delicious…
We made some bowtie pasta and just added a few tablespoons of pesto and it was so simple and so good. It was nice to change it up from regular ole spaghetti sauce.
And, just as simple as tossing with some pasta…I got some take ‘n bake bread at the store and, after it was baked and sliced, I dipped it in the pesto. You can just heat it up in the microwave (I added a little shredded parmesan) and it makes for a great little appetizer.
One of these days I’m going to make an attempt at making my own pesto. I’ll let you know how it turns out!
