Chicken Tenders


One of Morgan's favorite toddler foods is chicken nuggets (and Mommy's too). This chicken tender recipe (via Saveur) from Mitzi's in Winnipeg, Canada will be a hit for all ages. I love the flavor of these tenders and found that these will turn out fantastic whether fried or baked. Scott enjoyed using the leftovers for a quick and easy buffalo chicken wrap the next day. I did not try their honey mustard recipe but instead used World Harbors Maui Mountain Sweet-n-Sour Sauce.

GNG Tips: Not into frying? You can bake them at 475 degrees on a baking rack (in the lower third of your oven) for approximately 15 minutes. If you don't have a baking rack use a cookie sheet and flip tenders over half way through cooking time.

I have found that there are enough breadcrumbs for several batches of chicken fingers so only pour a portion of the mix in a bowl, add as needed, and store the unused breadcrumb in a Ziploc bag for future use. This morning I was able to whip up fresh chicken tenders for Morgan and Scott's lunch because I had the leftover crumbs ready to go. Seriously, I woke up at 7 a.m. and their lunch was ready by 7:20 a.m.!

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!

Here are my go-to recipes for guacamole and restaurant style salsa.

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.  

I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!

First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!
