About a year ago I made these Curried BBQ Turkey Burgers and I’ve been thinking about rephotographing those burgers because they were so delicious! Every time I brought home ground turkey I’d end up doing something else with it depending on what we were in the mood for or how much time I had to prep dinner. Then one day I made some classic chicken quesadillas and thought the flavors from this burger would taste amazing in a quesadilla. So, I gave it a whirl and we liked these more than the burgers! Shay said it was yummy too (hooray!!!).
I love a pan to table dinner. It’s what most of us are looking for on a weeknight, or any day really. It’s so great to toss everything into a pan and then just kind of…hope for the best. LOL. Pan to table meals are amazing, but they do take a little babysitting if you don’t want a pile o f mush, and want everything to taste good. Believe me when I say I’ve botched plenty of meals because I wasn’t as thoughtful as I should have been when tossing a bunch of ingredients in a screaming hot pan. With this meal I took one of our favorite sauces, honey mustard, and put my own twist on it by adding orange juice and rosemary. It’s like an adult version of a McDonald’s happy meal
How many of you actually make crab cakes at home? It’s probably super easy, but I wouldn’t know. I just associate crab cakes on my plate when I’m dining out at a nice restaurant. BUT, I make salmon at home all the time! I even fed it to Shay Shay when he started eating solids…you know before he realized that what I was feeding him was insanely healthy and from the sea. He doesn’t eat salmon willingly anymore, but the hubby and I love it. To keep it interesting we stray away from just popping it into the oven and make salmon cakes
Boy, oh, boy do I love cheesecake. Actually not even just me…Sushil, Shay, the rest of the family, coworkers, friends. It’s so freakin’ good! Now, I know you can make cheesecake in the Instant Pot and I love that dang thing, but I have attempted any Instant Pot desserts. In life, I just don’t really bake. It’s a goal of mine to bake more often since I love baked goods so much, but here I wanted to use some of my favorite flavors to make an easy no bake cheesecake and I think we have a winner!
