Heard how good turmeric is for you, but not sure how to add it to your cooking? This Turmeric Sautéed Greens recipe is soon going to be your jam!
When we started getting really into making smoothies for breakfast (which turned into the Smoothie Project and the Weelicious printable sheet here), one of the ingredients we all started adding to them was fresh turmeric. It has a strong flavor, but one that’s so incredibly tasty even the kids love it. Not only is it delicious in smoothies (especially when you balance it with something sweet like a date or banana), but when you add it to any of your favorite sautéed greens it’s off the charts!
Turmeric has been used in cuisines all over the world for centuries as it has all kinds of natural benefits like being an anti-depressant and having natural anti-inflammatory properties. By just adding a little to dishes you enjoy you’ll receive tons of healing powers you and your family may need more than you know.

Is there anything better than classic spaghetti and meatballs? It’s one of those recipes that when you say the name, people’s eyes light up! I put a Weelicious spin on it by making spaghetti and turkey meatballs! It makes the meatballs slightly healthier than traditional meatballs made with ground beef and just as, if not more, tasty than their carnivorous cousin.
When we go for dinner to Italian restaurants, Chloe orders spaghetti and meatballs without fail. It’s her total go to meal and if you ask what’s on her top 3 favorite dishes of all time this would be one of them. While I love meatballs made with beef, lamb or veal, I especially love them made with lean or dark ground turkey. As they soak up the delectable red sauce in this dish, you can use either meat and they will stay juicy and tender. I love tossing on top a handful of grated parmesan to give it a slight cheesy flavor to boot. Doesn’t a little cheese make everything taste better and that much more kid...
Want a recipe that gets you out of your comfort zone, but will be quickly added to your family’s favorite meals? You HAVE to make these Arepas with Poblano Pulled Chicken!
We started making one of the kids favorite foods, pupusas, at home after countless Sundays of buying them at the Hollywood Farmer’s Market. After years of eating them weekly after shopping for our weekly food there I became determined to learn how to make authentic pupusas, a beloved Salvadorian dish topped with slaw, crema, guacamole, and pico de gallo that Kenya, Chloe and now even Gemma love.
The first time I tried an arepa, a Latin American cousin to pupusas, I fell in love. They’re similar to a pupusa in the fact that they’re both made with corn and water, flattened into a disk and pan seared, but totally different in other ways. It’s like comparing Kansas city and North Carolina barbecue if you know what I mean.
Traditional Venezuelan arepas are made with corn flour (also known as Masarepa...
This Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread turns one of your favorite nostalgic recipes and takes it from delicious to out of control incredible! Add it to school lunch for a fun treat, or make some with your kids after school to snack on while doing homework.
One of the first recipes I ever learned to make was a classic banana bread. To this day when I want to bring something to a sick friend, a mom with a new baby or someone I love, banana bread is always top of mind. On occasion I will add walnuts or chocolate chips to jazz it up a bit, but when I really want to take it to the next level I break up a batch of chocolate chip cookies for the ultimate surprise in every bite!
I usually keep a big batch of baked chocolate chip cookies labeled in zipper bags in the freezer, so I don’t have to make two full recipes from scratch for this Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. When I discovered Otis Spunkmeyer and their chocolate chunk cookie with No Funky Stuff I was intrigued. Usually when you buy...
You know when you see a new ingredient at Trader Joe’s that it’s going to be a trendy food you’re going to see more and more of. The first time I tried cauliflower rice I was OBSESSED! I had been using finely chopped cauliflower “rice” to make insanely delicious Cauliflower Crusted Grilled Cheese, but using it as an alternative to rice is not only tasty, but a low carb and paleo way to eat. This Asian Style Cauliflower Rice is bright in color, is made with tons of vegetables and seasoned with soy sauce, ginger, scallions and more!
I’ve been making tons of varieties of cauliflower rice, but this version with a bunch of veggies including edamame, spinach and bell peppers is one of my favorites. I love the vegetables in the recipe, but you can add baby boy choy, grated carrots, chopped broccoli or anything else you have on hand. Everything in the recipe should be chopped so it cooks really quick making it a quick meal to whip up. I totally suggest making double as it’s...
