Sweet Potato Dippers

Sweet Potato Dippers from Weelicious

My kids love dipping their food. Whether it’s Oven Baked Fries, Crispy Fish Fingers, or BBQ Chicken in the Crock Pot, if there’s a sauce on the side to dip into they are engaged eaters. That’s why these Sweet Potato Dippers make the most irresistible, nutritious snack or side dish for both kids and adults.

My original idea for this recipe was to make stuffed sweet potato skins, but as soon as I cut them in half, instead of scooping out the flesh to make potato skins I kept them intact, added a sprinkle of Maldon sea salt and thought how tasty they would be served on their own with a simple, thick dip made from Greek yogurt, cinnamon and a touch of honey to counter the bright flavor of the potato. The dip also offers a welcome protein boost and is irresistibly tasty.

There couldn’t be an easier way to get your kids to eat good-for-you foods like sweet potatoes than by offering them a fun dip, so what are you waiting for, dip away!

Greek Nachos Video

Who’s ready for Super Bowl weekend? Who hasn’t even begun to think about what to make for the party you’re hosting or going to?

Greek Nachos video from Weelicious

If you answered, “me”, I’m going to solve your problems in todays video by showing you one of my all time favorite recipes: Greek Nachos. They’re great for lunch or a simple weeknight dinner, but also for times like Super Bowl, when you need something quick, healthy and hearty to feed a crowd of hungry sports fans.

I wish that I could say we’re big sports fans in our house, but to be honest I’m the girl who enjoys the commercials as much as the actual game. Still, the one thing I look forward to most is hanging out with my family and friends and enjoying the game day fare.

For this video I hooked up with a few of my other favorite YouTube collaborators to share videos for our favorite Super Bowl recipes. This Greek Nacho Video will give you a bunch of tips for making them extra special, but stick around for the videos that follow it for a...

Vegetarian Spring Rolls

Vegetarian Spring Rolls from Weelicious

We have a friend who recently opened an delivery-only Chinese restaurant called — of course — Secret Chinese Delivery. The menu is based on the beloved New York City Chinese food he grew up on as a kid.

Vegetarian Spring Rolls from Weelicious

We visited our friend at another one of his restaurants a few months ago and he let us sample a few of the dishes he was working on for the menu. One of them were Vegetarian Spring Rolls stuffed, among other things, with a secret ingredient generally not seen on most Chinese restaurant menus: kale. Not only were the spring rolls delicious and packed with tons of diced vegetables, but they were super crispy too. After watching the kids gobble up one after another, I decided that I wanted to make my own homemade version.

Instead of frying them to get that crispy texture, I sautéed the spring rolls in a few tablespoons of coconut oil which not only made them crunchy, but imparted a really unique, tasty flavor.

Chicken Pesto Wraps

Chicken Pesto Wraps from Weelicious

I was almost done making these Chicken Pesto Wraps for my kids’ lunch today when I realized they were going to be getting pizza at school. Sigh. Good thing these wraps stay fresh all day because we will be eating them for dinner tonight — a healthy, easy to assemble Friday night meal.

Chicken Pesto Wraps from Weelicious

I had cooked a chicken in my crock pot on Wednesday, providing me with tons of leftover juicy chicken to use the rest of the week. This morning I was trying to come up with a creative use for all the chunks of extra meat I still had. I keep lots of my Everyday Basil Pesto frozen in these little glass containers (I’ve used them for everything from storing homemade baby food to broth to pesto) so I always have some on hand to defrost and add to recipes like this one. Don’t feel limited to one kind of pesto for this recipe. You can also use kale, pumpkin seed, pistachio even spinach pesto instead.

Tiger Rice Cooker Giveaway – 2 Winners!

Tiger Rice Cooker giveaway from Weelicious

Is there anything better than walking into your kitchen and catching a big whiff of whatever’s bubbling away? I wish I had a picture of my kid’s faces, exhausted and borderline cranky after a long day as they catch the aroma of something cooking away. It’s like a release of happiness as they realize they will soon get to fill their hungry bellies.

If there’s one piece of equipment I use at least every other day it’s our rice cooker. From perfectly cooked fluffy brown rice to oatmeal to Rice Cooker Mac and Cheese (see how easy it is to make in this quick video) you will quickly understand why you need one in your kitchen. Every time I have friends over and they see it out more often then not they will say “why don’t I have a rice cooker”. This is the moment to get on board.

TWO lucky Weelicious readers have the chance to win one of these in this Tiger Rice Cooker Giveaway. The The Tiger Multi-Functional Micom 5.5-Cup Rice Cooker and Warmer has a lot of amazing features...
