KICKING IT SHISH KEBAB STYLE

kicking it shish kebab style

Hello there,

Yes people I am totally kicking it shish kebab style and love the outcome. This week I wanted to experiment a bit more and move away from my cliché meals of pasta and rice. To be honest, this was totally accidental because I wanted to make meatballs but since meatballs go with pasta, I didn’t want to even go there and just before I forget, go here to check out my best pasta sauce. So my direction changed and I ended up with these bad boys. If you would like to introduce something new to your menu, here is how you can make them.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional in making shish kebabs, in fact I didn’t use skewers because I forgot that I didn’t get any on my last shopping trip and lastly, I was really aiming for them to look like Croatian çevapis hence the shape. Now let’s go ahead and show you what you need.

DAIRY FREE ZUCCHINI VANILLA CUPCAKE RECIPE

DAIRY FREE ZUCCHINI VANILLA CUPCAKE RECIPE

Hi guys, hope your week is going on just fine. This week I decided to revisit a recipe I used to make but then kind of neglected it for a while. As I had said before in my other post here, my son is allergic to milk and we thought it would have disappeared once he turned 2 then 3 and now he is almost 4 but clearly it’s just chilling on the side lines saying “Am still here” and will not disappear anytime soon. I found this recipe that my son loves from the cook yourself thin book and just in case I forgot to mention, it’s not only dairy free but fat free too. So if you need a low calorie treat, then this recipe is for you. This is my dairy free zucchini vanilla cupcake recipe.

SIMPLE PORK STIR-FRY RECIPE

simple pork stir fry recipe

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and got to plan for your week ahead. As for me, It was yet another trip to the grocery store and finally got to change my menu, which I normally do after two weeks or switch up some meals once they have become too much for my picky little eater. My son loves noodles and I mean really loves them and so every week, it has to be on the menu and it’s the only meal that never changes.

I usually change the meat we eat it with once in a while but so long as it’s noodles, my little boy is happy. My husband is more of the seafood and no sweet sauces type of man, and when I make my son’s meal, I change few things when finalising the meal to make it a bit different. So today was pork stir-fry which really went well and it’s very simple, so if you need to whip up a fast stir-fry meal, then this recipe is for you. Here is my simple pork stir-fry recipe.
