Rueben Pinwheels with Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

Posted by on Oct 3, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Rueben Pinwheels with Homemade Thousand Island Dressing

This week, I was browsing my saved Pinterest recipes, trying to find something fun to bring to a friend’s house for Book Club. I didn’t have a lot of time…or a lot of patience…and then I came across these Rueben Pinwheels from Belly Full (I adapted from the original recipe). No oven time, minimal mess, and fun enough to elevate my food contribution to the group from “boring but good” to “fun and delish”. These are also perfect for a sandwich alternative in lunch boxes! Now you’re an even cooler mom! The best part? I used my trusty Mama Jess Organic Ketchup to make some homemade Thousand Island dressing to add to the pinwheels! No sugar added,...

Buffalo Cauliflower Nuggets

Posted by on Sep 19, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Buffalo Cauliflower Nuggets

This one is for all of you buffalo wing lovers who don’t love looking at the buffalo wing nutrition labels. Save the guilt, keep the taste is my motto which is why I LOVE these buffalo cauliflower nuggets! Cauliflower is just the craziest vegetable because it can transform into anything: mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, rice, and now chicken nuggets?! Yes. It really is magic. Put these out with some ranch dipping sauce for an after school snack, or a guilt-free game day dish. And if you don’t love buffalo sauce (like I do), try them with barbecue, honey mustard…the options are endless! Xoxo, Claire and Mamas at Mama Jess Buffalo Cauliflower...

Chicken Zucchini Enchiladas

Posted by on Sep 5, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Chicken Zucchini Enchiladas

This week instead of Taco Tuesday we had…Enchilada Tuesday! Doesn’t quite have the same ring to it but moving forward we might need to make this a thing. Instead of the traditional flour tortilla enchiladas, though, I put a healthy spin on it by whipping up Chicken Zucchini Enchiladas. Since so much of the taste is in the sauce and spices, it’s easy to forget you’re even eating zucchini (hint hint cough cough for all of you mamas feeding picky eaters). While the focus of this recipe is on zucchini enchiladas, I also made one dish of enchiladas substituting the zucchini for Egg Crepinis , which I have linked. I found these at Costco and they look like mini...

At my house we are officially in the full swing back to school mindset, which means I am loving anything that is minimal mess and maximum taste for dinner.

Fresh Veggie Flatbread

Posted by on Aug 23, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Fresh Veggie Flatbread

Just because school is starting back up doesn’t mean that summer is over! And in that spirit, today we are bringing you a fresh veggie flatbread to enjoy for the rest of these beautiful days! Crispy flatbread and the perfect mix of sweet and salty veggies…enjoy this one as a snack, appetizer, or meal! I used a store-bought flatbread and coated it lightly in olive oil, minced garlic, and salt before sprinkling goat cheese on top and baking the flatbread to a crisp according to package instructions (about 10 minutes at 425 degrees F). While that baked, I chopped up my veggies and lightly marinated them with lemon juice and the spice mixture. When the flatbread...

Veggie & Protein Packed Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Posted by on Aug 15, 2019 in blog, blogs, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Veggie & Protein Packed Pasta with Tomato Cream Sauce

Happy Thursday, Mamas! I am so excited to share this less-than-30 minute pasta recipe with you today, it’s packed full of veggies, protein, and Mama Jess pasta sauce of course! I have always joked that one of my special talents is turning anything in the fridge into a delicious pasta dish, and I am proud to say that I have succeeded once again. Which means I’m sharing it with you! The special part about this dish, though, is in the sauce! I chose to take our no-sugar added, veggie-based pasta sauce and add in a dash of heavy whipping cream to create a luscious creamy tomato sauce and it was such a treat! PS: the leftovers are even better because the pasta has...
