Incredible Baked Meatballs
– 500 g of ground beef
– 1 egg
– 2 teaspoons of salt
– 1 small grated onion
– 1 clove of crushed garlic
– 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
– 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
– 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
– 1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
– 4-5 tbsp of breadcrumbs
1- Preheat the oven to 200 ° C.
2- Season the meat with salt, grated onion, crushed garlic, 3 herbs and Worcestershire sauce, then mix well. Then add the egg and breadcrumbs and mix well again.
3- Form meatballs the size of a walnut, and place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
Bake in hot oven until meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 20 to 25 minutes.
– If you have food intolerances, you can replace the breadcrumbs with oatmeal (I crush them between my fingers), and the egg with a little animal or vegetable milk. I have also happened to replace Worcestershire sauce with a soy and vinegar combination.
– If the meatballs are not cooked for children, do not hesitate to add pepper flakes to spice up a little more!

4 (6-oz.) salmon fillets
Freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. lime juice
1/4 c. honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp. Chopped cilantro
Season salmon with salt and pepper. Heat grill and place salmon on grill flesh side down.
Cook for 8 minutes then flip and cook on other side until salmon is cooked through, 6 minutes more. Let rest 5 minutes.
Meanwhile make sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add butter, lime juice, honey, and garlic. Stir until butter is melted and all ingredients are combined. Turn off heat and add cilantro.
Pour sauce over salmon and serve.
Baked chicken wings and fried cabbage
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
COOK TIME: 45 minutes
SERVES :6 to 8
1 teaspoon neutral oil, for greasing
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or olive oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar (or other)
1 tablespoon Sriracha, optional
8 pieces bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs or drumsticks
1 pinch kosher salt and pepper to taste
1 head cabbage, 2 to 3 lbs.
Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Pour a teaspoon of neutral oil over a rimmed sheet pan. Rub to coat.
In a small bowl, stir together the sesame oil, coconut oil, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sriracha, if using. Place chicken in a large bowl. Season all over with salt and pepper.
Pour 1/4 cup of the prepared mixture over the chicken and let marinate while the oven preheats. (Chicken can marinate longer, too, but try, if time permits, to bring it to room temperature before cooking—the coconut oil will solidify in the fridge and look clumpy, which is fine.)
Cut the cabbage in half through the core.
Cut again through each core and repeat this process until you are left with many wedges, no greater than 1-inch wide. Place the wedges in a large bowl, season all over with salt and pepper, and toss with the remaining dressing.
Place chicken on prepared sheet pan spreading it out evenly. Roast for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and nestle cabbage wedges all around the pieces, tucking it under if necessary—it will feel like a lot of cabbage. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes more or until chicken is golden and cooked through. Remove pan from oven, transfer chicken to a platter to rest. Return cabbage to the oven to roast for 10 to 15 minutes more, or until juices have reduced and edges of cabbage wedges are caramelized.

1 cup Asian herbs (e.g. mint, Thai basil and/or coriander (cilantro))
1/3 cup Marion’s Kitchen Vietnamese-style Tangy Dressing
2 tbsp crispy fried shallots
Soak the noodles in hot water for 3-4 minutes or until just tender. Drain and use scissors to cut into more management lengths. Set aside to cool.
Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the garlic and chilli and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Then add the prawns and stir-fry for half a minute or until the prawns are pink and opaque. Then add the soy sauce and honey. Stir-fry to combine. Then add the cornflour mixture and stir-fry for another half a minute or until the sauce is thick and glossy. Turn off the heat and set aside.
Mix the cooked noodles, cabbage, carrot, edamame beans, herbs and the Vietnamese-style Tangy Dressing. Place onto a serving plate and top with the sticky honey prawns. Sprinkle over the fried shallots and serve.

Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon of the wine and about 1/2 tablespoon of the oil. Fold each bit of the foil to make a packet, sealing tightly and leaving a touch room inside for air to circulate within the packet. The packets could also be refrigerated (or frozen) at this stage.
Preheat the oven to 425F.
Arrange the packets on a baking sheet and cook until the shrimp is cooked through, and therefore the vegetables are crisp-tender, 13 minutes.
Open the packets slowly, being careful of the recent steam.
Transfer the shrimp, vegetables, and sauce that has accumulated to individual bowls or rimmed plates.
To freeze and heat:
Place uncooked packets into sealable plastic bags, keeping them level and upright. (Two packets fit well into a gallon-sized bag). Freeze for up to 2 (2) months. There’s no got to thaw before cooking.
Remove the frozen packets from the luggage and place them on a baking tray during a cold oven set to 425F.
Once the oven involves temperature, still cook for 35-40 minutes.

In a large skillet or pan, sauté onions in two tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
Once onions soften, increase the heat to medium high and add chicken to the pan.
Brown the chicken pieces and add the garlic. Cook for about 1 more minute.
Push chicken to one side of the pan and add additional tablespoon of olive oil to other side.
Add the uncooked rice in the olive oil and saute it for a couple of minutes.
Add the chicken broth to the pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover the pan with a lid.
Cook chicken and rice mixture covered for about 12 minutes.
Sprinkle the broccoli evenly over the chicken and rice mixture and stir to combine.
Continue to cook covered another 8 minutes on low, or until broccoli and rice are both tender.
Remove from heat and stir in half a cup of cheese.
Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and cover with a lid, letting it sit for 1-2 minutes or until cheese has melted.
You need a large skillet or pan with a higher edge for this dish to hold everything. I used a 12-inch skillet that had a slightly raised edge and it worked great.

Crispy Fried Chicken Drumsticks
16 chicken drumsticks (or a combination of drumsticks and thighs)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons black pepper (divided)
3 cups vegetable oil (for frying; approximately)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Pat the chicken with paper towels to dry. Do not rinse your chicken, as the splatter of water and raw chicken juices can only increase the chance of cross-contamination in your kitchen.
In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, Tabasco sauce, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the black pepper. Add the chicken legs to the mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate with the marinade for at least 1 hour (or up to 24 hours).
After the marinating period is done, remove the chicken from the buttermilk and let any excess buttermilk drip off. If you have a cooling rack, put the chicken pieces on it, placing paper towels underneath to collect the drippings.
Heat the warming drawer or oven to 200 F.
In a large, heavy saucepan, deep skillet, or sauté pan, heat at least 3 cups of oil to about 350 F.
In a large clean bowl, combine the flour, the remaining black pepper, and the cayenne. Shake the chicken legs in the seasoned flour and place on the rack while waiting for the oil to heat to the right temperature.
Once the oil has reached 350 F, place the chicken pieces in the oil, working in batches. Fry the chicken for about 10 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. To check for doneness, use an instant-read food thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the largest drumstick, away from bone or fat. The minimum safe temperature for poultry is 165 F.
Once done, remove the chicken pieces to paper towels to drain.
Place the drained chicken on a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil, and move to the warming drawer or oven to keep warm while frying subsequent batches.

Hard to find the best recipe for rhubarb pie but this one is foolproof! Grandma said so! If you never tried to make this before
it’s easy and so delicious. The Strawberries and Rhubarb are the perfect match for this pie. A little tart and a little sweet.
The Best Pies
Of course growing up you always remember grandma making the best of everything.
This is one pie that stands out in my mind because everything from crust to pie filling was made from scratch.
It was a rich in flavors and a labor of love making this pie!
To this day all I can think of is her rolling the dough and me anxiously waiting to get that pie out of the oven!
Of course, you can just make a whole top crust, if you don’t want to get fancy with lattice!
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus additional flour as needed, up to 1/4 cup
1/2 cup cake flour (recommended: Soft As Silk)
3 teaspoons sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening (recommended: Crisco)
1/4 cup salted butter
2 teaspoons vinegar
1/4 cup ice cold water
2 1/2 cups chopped red rhubarb, fresh
2 1/2 cups de-stemmed, washed and cut strawberries (in larger pieces)
1 1/2 cups sugar (1 1/4 cups for high altitude)
2 tablespoons minute tapioca
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, cubed small
1 egg white beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Large granule sugar
Using 2 pastry blenders, blend the flours, sugar, shortening, butter and salt. Whisk the egg, vinegar and water in a 2-cup measure and pour over the dry ingredients incorporating all the liquid without overworking the dough. Toss the additional flour over the ball of dough and chill if possible. Divide the dough into 2 disks. Roll out 1 piece of dough to make a bottom crust. Place into a pie dish. Put dish in refrigerator to chill.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Mix the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, tapioca, flour, zest and juice of lemon, dash of cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix well in a large bowl and pour out into chilled crust. Dot the top of the filling with the butter. Brush edges of pie crust with egg white wash. Roll out the other piece of dough and place over filling. Crimp to seal edges. Brush with egg white wash and garnish with large granule sugar. Collar with foil and bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Decrease temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 45 to 50 minutes, or until the filling starts bubbling. Higher altitude will take 450 degrees F and 400 degrees F respectively. Also, you can use a pie bird for extra decor. Let cool before serving.

HOW TO MAKE FRIED RICE?
One of my favorite take-out dishes has always been fried rice. What about you?
Many people certainly think it aside, but I personally only enjoy it like the main meal. A generously sized cup of it, drizzled over the top with plenty of soy sauce.
This recipe for fried rice is deliciously tasty, super hearty and perfectly filling, and amazingly simple to prepare! And that’s as good as what you can find in restaurants.
Plus, mixing up and using other veggies or meats you want is fast.
I love that it uses ingredients that I usually stock, and it’s pretty easy to find a substitute for the few you do not.
I just used ingredients that all of us have in their kitchen.
all you need is:
4 C.Of cooked and chilled rice.
3 minced garlic cloves.
3 green onions, I thinly sliced them.
1/2 C.Of frozen peas
3 T.Of butter.
2 whisked eggs.
2 medium carrots, I peeled and diced them.
1 small white onion, I diced it.
5 T.Of soy sauce.
2 t.Of oyster sauce, it’s optional but It gives a great taste!!!
1 t.Of toasted sesame oil.
Salt+black pepper- to taste-.
In a large saucepan, I heated over medium-high heat 1/2 tablespoon of butter until melted.
I added one egg and cooked, stirring regularly until scratched.
I removed the egg, and transfer it to a different dish.
I added to a pan a further 1 tablespoon of butter and cook until melted.
I seasoned with a generous pinch of sea salt and black pepper and I added the diced carrots, onion, peas, and minced garlic.
I sauteed until the onion and carrots are tender, for around 5 minutes.
I added the remaining 1 tablespoon and half of the butter and I stir until melted.
I raised the heat to high, and I added the cooked rice, green onions, soy, and oyster sauce immediately, and I stir until mixed.
To fry the rice, I keep stirring for an additional 3 minutes.
I added the shells, and I stir to mix.
I pour the sesame oil and stir and I removed the mixture from the heat.
And now it’s ready to serve.
