Blueberry Chocolate Chip Walnut Muffins

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Walnut Muffins

We love making muffins (and love eating them).  These are super easy and a lot cheaper than buying them in the store.  They are best served warm and are great to have with a glass of milk.

Silicone cupcake liners from Amazon work great you can also use cooking spray. For the butter we used Organic Ghee Clarified Butter by Carrington Farms.  They also have cooking oils and cooking oil spray.

Jelly Donut Muffins

Jelly Donut Muffins

These muffins were super easy to make and they are great for breakfast, dessert or just a mid-day treat.  I had the kids help make them and while it was a little messy, we had fun in the kitchen and had a sweet treat afterwards.  When making these make sure you let them cool off a little before eating them since the jelly inside gets hot.  They are definitely delicious served warm.

I first started with a basic muffin mix.  This mix can be used for other types of muffins too (we used leftover batter to make Blueberry Walnut Chocolate Chip muffins).

Line Muffin tin with silicone cupcake liners or use cooking spray. For the butter we used Organic Ghee Clarified Butter by Carrington Farms.  They also have cooking oils and cooking oil spray.

The kids were a little messy.  The recipe asks for 1 teaspoon of jelly or jam to the middle.

Mushroom & Potato Pizza with Fontina Cheese, Spinach & Garlic Oil

None of us had ever had potatoes on a pizza before.  My son did not even want to try it but we coaxed him.  The pizza was sensational!  Definitely full of flavor.  I think the seasons and unique toppings gave it extra texture and depth to whole new level of pizza.

Spiced Beef & Pickled Onion Tortas with Cara Cara Orange, Radish & Romaine Salad

These were easy to make but the very last step, toasting the bread in the pan, didn’t work. I think we overstuffed the bread and it was hard to keep everything from falling out.  We have one pestcaterian in our family so we made three with the spiced beef and a fourth with a salmon patty.  I’d never had orange slices in a salad before but it was a nice, refreshing twist that was easy.

Check out what we received and my person Junior Chef helped me create.  We received two meals to create at home.  Both took 10-15 minutes to prep, 25-35 minutes to cook and had a serving size of four.  We made both of them, so we can try both, and had leftovers for the next day.  The recipes did require for us to read them all the way through first to completely understand the steps but were easy to make.

Toasted delicious bread.  onions boiled with vinegar, sugar, water and a pinch of salt than drained.  After they cooled they were added with lettuce and seasoned and cooked spicy beef to the bread and cheese was added on the other side.

Having my daughter help with the whole thing made the meal making a lot quicker and we enjoyed chatting while we cooked.  I think it is important to get kids in the kitchen to help with meals (and clean up) so that they understand the ingredients and where they come from and also appreciate the food more.  Blue Apron meals can be ordered online and delivered to your door.  Lots of meal choices and options with diet, size of family, frequency of delivery, etc.

Now we can sit down and get into season five of MasterChef Junior and cheer the teams on while they create fantastic dishes.

To-Die-For Tuna Melt Sandwiches

To-Die-For Tuna Melt Sandwiches

These are seriously the best tuna melt sandwiches I have ever had.  Great for a rainy day with soup.  I’ve only had tuna melts in a deli.  This was my first time creating them at home.  The tuna is from SafeCatch.  Wild albacore tuna.  I got the recipe from my friend at Joeography (check out his page for awesome travel and photography posts).  He is also a fantastic cook.

The tuna used for this, from SafeCatch is the healthiest tuna (for humans and the planet) I’ve seen on the market.  It is tested for mercury, is dolphin safe, BPA-free and more.  The actual ingredient list on the label: Albacore Tuna.  Some of the varieties have salt.  That is it.
