Beef Kofta with Lemon Yogurt Sauce

Beef Kofta recipe from weelicious.com

I’ve never met a meatball I didn’t love. Whether it’s Chicken Teriyaki, Cheesy Turkey or Meatloaf Meatballs, these are just a few that I whip up for dinner and even freeze for busy nights. When you’ve hit meatball overload, though, and want to switch things up you have to consider this Beef Kofta and Lemon Yogurt Sauce recipe. It’s essentially a meatball jazzed up with a bunch of spices, sautéed and then skewered making it a ton of fun to dip and enjoy, especially for kids. Let’s be honest here, everything tastes better on a stick! I’ve made these with turkey and lamb, but ground beef is by far my favorite. When Kenya and Chloe were both toddlers I found that ground meat was an easy answer to introducing them to meats. There’s nothing “spicy” about these, just tons of addictive flavor.

I serve the Beef Kofta with Lemon Yogurt Sauce that has just the right amount of zip and zing from fresh mint (that at this point is bursting out of our garden) and lemon juice to...

Waffle French Toast Video

There is breakfast and then there’s breakfast! I can see the look on my kids faces when I tell them the night before what I’m planning on serving or as they walk in the kitchen with a massive grin or a ho hum look. Trust me when I tell you that this is one of those game changing breakfasts that will make you a super mom in everyone’s eyes! Watch this Waffle French Toast Video to get inspired.

Since all of the ingredients are so simple you want to use the best possible. Grab a really tasty loaf of bread to start. Whole wheat or white is perfectly suitable, but cinnamon raisin is a total game changer. In general I love breads with tons of “stuff” in it because in the waffle iron it becomes really sweet and toasty tasting. Next you want some really creamy organic milk, maple syrup, a dash of cinnamon and eggs. That’s it! Let your waffle iron do all of the magic and believe me it will.

Now if you want to take it again further you can ignore everything I’ve said above in...

Vegetarian Lo Mein

Vegetarian Lo Mein recipe from weelicious.com

You want a dish that’s a great use of all those extra veggies you’ve got in your fridge, a bunch of half used sauces and a box of noodles you’ve had in your cupboard for lord knows how long? Vegetarian Lo Mein is soon going to be your weeknight jam!

Vegetarian Lo Mein recipe from weelicious.com

When it comes to take-out Chinese food you probably have Mu Shu Chicken, some sort of dumplings and fried rice and of course spring rolls on your list, but if you’re trying to also fill a vegetarian’s dish come true you want to order Vegetarian Lo Mein. It’s not only filling, but also nutritious with a myriad of vegetables. If you make it at home as we do you can add even more brightly colored vegetables and jazz up your sauce as I’ve done here with extra Sriracha for me, carrots for Chloe, spinach for hubby and bean sprouts for Kenya.

If you’re on a budget it’s another great recipe to put the brakes on your wallet and use what you most likely already have on hand. It’s so good in fact I would say the kids enjoy it...

11 Foundation Foods to Raise Healthy Eating Kids

11 foundation foods guest post from Dr. Tanya Altmann on weelicious.com

I met Tanya last year, when Gemma was only weeks old at a mom blogger event and was immediately captivated. Not only is she the mother of three amazing boys, but also a well respected pediatrician in Los Angeles who also on the Today Show and on many other shows dolling out advice and incredibly useful knowledge to moms like myself. As Gemma is just beginning to eat and appears to have several food allergies, I’ve been keeping Dr Tanya’s new book, What to Feed Your Baby, on my bedside table and reading it over and over again. I’m grateful that she’s sharing her 11 Foundation Foods to Raise Healthy Eating Kids on the site today. If you have any questions leave them in the comments below so Tanya can try to answer them. Here’s some great advice from her to get you started:

What parent doesn’t want to raise a healthy, nutrition-loving child who will eat everything put in front of him, then place his napkin in his lap and say “thank you” with a big...
