One Pan Dinner: Lemon Butter Chicken and Spinach

Posted by on Nov 30, 2018 in blog, blogs, recipes | Comments Off on One Pan Dinner: Lemon Butter Chicken and Spinach

Get your taste buds excited, because today I have a treat for you: One Pan Lemon Butter Chicken with Spinach. Post Thanksgiving, I have some family in town, so feeding a group of 7 people has become a bit more challenging than my typical four. This recipe was one I found online and improved upon for our big group and our dear readers, and it was the perfect meal: protein and greens all wrapped up in one, with a creamy sauce to top it all off! Here’s how to make it: Part one is marinating the chicken. I prefer skin on, bone in thighs for this dish, but the grocery store was out (I know! The horror!) so I went with wings and drumsticks instead. I just love the way that...

Spaghetti Nests

Happy Thanksgiving Week! We are trotting right along in our Thanksgiving Appetizer Recipe Series to bring you mamas the cutest version of a pasta dish we have ever had: Spaghetti Nests! These easy to make, fun to eat bites are perfect for the younger guests at your feast and are simply the best portion size for when you’re craving a bit of carbs (because sometimes you just are, I know). One of the best parts of this snack (other than our Organic Garden Pasta Sauce) is the little meatball nestled in the pasta. I used frozen organic meatballs for this recipe, but you can always make your own too! The first step is to preheat your oven to cook your meatballs. I put my...

Happy Almost Thanksgiving, Mamas! If you haven’t read our Instagram feed (or if you don’t follow us, join our community at @MamaJessFounder), we are celebrating Thanksgiving all week with posts of recipes for delicious, easy appetizers to serve your guests or bring to a party! Today’s recipe: Brie and Fig Poppers! Just look at that pure puff pastry perfection…You should be warned though: it’s almost like a magic trick, how quickly these will disappear, so maybe have a batch or two ready to go because they will be a favorite! I just love the earthy flavor of the brie mixed with the sweetness of the fig jam, held together by a buttery puff pastry!...

Zoodles Shrimp Scampi in 30 Minutes

Posted by on Nov 8, 2018 in #LastMinuteMeals, blog, blogs, recipes | Comments Off on Zoodles Shrimp Scampi in 30 Minutes

Earlier this week, I had a conundrum. I had less than an hour to make and eat dinner, but I wanted something healthy and homemade. The problem, which you mamas can probably see, is: it can be difficult to make, eat, and enjoy a healthy meal in less than an hour. But today, I may deserve a medal, because I achieved it. That being bragged about, I should probably admit something. I cheated just a wee bit. I have always wanted to be that woman who grows her own herbs to spice up her handmade pasta with a side of hand kneaded and baked bread…but tonight, time was of the essence, of course. So here is the confession: I bought pre-spiralized zucchini noodles and frozen...
