Monday is Hanukkah, and we want to wish Chag Sameach to our Jewish readers! You’ll, of course, want to be whipping up some of our favorite potato latkes for your dinner Monday night. But also take a look at some of the clever twists on traditional Hanukkah recipes that Caroline found. These may become your new family favorites.
One of my most successful methods of introducing new flavors to my kids is to add unexpected spices to their familiar foods, and this Indian-spiced roast chicken at Boozy Oyster is a great example. First of all, there is no booze in this recipe — just spicy, sweet Indian flavors that your kids will love. Even if you have to let them dip it in ketchup to try it first.
Mmm, how good do these melty Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes at Celebrating Sweets look? The recipe calls for ground beef but you could also use ground turkey or even “beefless” grounds for a vegetarian alternative that your kids probably won’t even notice. Serve with some fruit and chips for an easy, kid-approved dinner.
Prep these Easy Chicken Enchiladas at Jernej Kitchen while the kids are napping or at school, then stick them in the oven at the last minute for a home cooked meal that feels like no work.
It’s absolutely chili weather now, and this Chili con Carne at The Seasoned Mom is great because the recipe works for the slow cooker or the stovetop — so you can let it simmer all day or pull it together last minute. Add your favorite toppings, slather some butter on your cornbread, and invite friends to join you for a perfect winter dinner in.
