Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups

Posted by on Dec 4, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups

Some of the best things are made by accident. The Post-It Note. The Microwave Oven. Even Chocolate Chip Cookies. Yes, I looked these up to make myself feel like I am in better company because today’s recipe was an accident…a delicious accident.  It was supposed to be a Pizza Stuffed Chicken Breast. But then I didn’t realize that I bought chicken tender cutlets instead of chicken breast. At this point, they were going to be Chicken Pizza Roll-Ups. Then I forgot to add on the pepperoni. So, here we have Chicken Parmesan Roll-Ups. And let me tell you, they will stay on the menu. But to be honest, anything that includes Mama Jess Sauce is delicious, accident and...

Veggie Gratin

Posted by on Nov 21, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Veggie Gratin

It’s almost the most wonderful day of the year…the holiday that is all about FOOD! As you can probably tell, here at Mama Jess, we have a lot of love for Thanksgiving because it combines all of our favorite things: family, friends, and food. After last year’s popular Thanksgiving appetizer blogs (see them below), we thought we would spotlight a side dish. Since the food at the table can get extremely heavy in your stomach, we decided this year to search for a lighter dish that is heavy on taste. This Veggie Gratin is full of simple flavors that go together perfectly, and when served warm, it takes its place perfectly on your plate next to the turkey, stuffing, and...

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. That’s where these One Pan Shrimp Fajitas come in! In less than 30 minutes you have a full meal with a perfect balance of vitamin C filled veggies, protein filled shrimp, and if you don’t want the carbs from the fajita tortillas, try it wrapped in lettuce!  This recipe was adapted from No. 2 Pencil blog so you can check out the original there or scrolled down for our take on it!
