In n Out AND Indian Sliders!

WE LOVE SLIDERS! Ok we love burgers but sliders are just so much cuter! I decided to satisfy our In N Out cravings but making some Animal Style sliders over the weekend and they were AMAZING! Almost like the real thing and will hold us over until the next time we can make it to In N Out.

Another recent creation were Indian Sliders inspired by Rachael Ray's lamb burger. I just turned them into sliders and used beef instead of lamb. YUM YUM!

Lots of Meaty Dinners!

We're definitely meat lovers at our house and we've been having some yummy meaty dinners! First off some pork chops braised in a sauce made with a combo of Mango Pineapple Salsa and broth. It's so simple yet perfect for summer. Don't you just think of mango and pineapples when the weather gets warm?

We received some Stonewall Kitchen gourmet jams and jellies as a gift and one of the jars was Hot Pepper Jelly which I found is perfect with lamb. So I made some grilled Lamb Loin Chops and served the jelly on top. AMAZING!

We also had some huge chicken legs braised in a Coconut Curry Sauce. The sauce was just curry powder, ginger, garlic and coconut milk with LOTS of red chili peppers! So simple yet so flavorful served over rice noodles, hubby favorite!

Next we have some pork chops simmered in a spicy pickled jalapeno sauce. Our favorite brand is Embasa and it comes in a can with pickled carrots as well. SO perfect to add a Mexican twist to anything!

I found a recipe for Greek Braised Chicken Thighs and thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did! We don't eat a lot of Feta but we're definitely gonna start! I just love the texture and saltiness!

AND last but definitely not least, I made the most amazing Pepper-Stuffed Pork Chops! Yes the filling fell out a bit but who cares? :)

Yummy Appies!

We LOVE appies especially healthy ones so when I saw these Mini Salmon Cakes I knew I had to make them. I healthified them with Fat Free Mayo and omitted the butter. The mixture was a bit too wet so I freezed it for about 15 min before forming the cakes. Turned out perfect and how much do you LOVE my mini dishes?

I LOVE Athenos Hummus especially the Roasted Red Pepper flavor. I like using it for a dip and I also like making Mini Pita Bites out of them. I baked the pita in the oven for about 10 min and then topped them with the hummus, red onion, fat free feta and pepperoncini. Delicious!
