Friday Foodday

Happy Friday lovebugs! Here are my favorite recipes this week.

The Classic Rob Roy
c/o The Kitchn
2 ounces of Blended Scotch Whiskey
1 ounce sweet vermouth
2 dashes of Angostura bitters
1 lemon peel, for garnish


In a shaker filled with ice, add the Scotch whiskey, the sweet vermouth and the bitters. Stir to chill. Strain into a martini glass (or an equally alluring vessel) and top with a lemon peel.

BBQ Cheddar Jalapeno Chicken Meatballs

  • 1 lb. 90% lean ground chicken
  • 1-2 jalapenos, seeded and diced (adjust according to your spice preference)
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • Splash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp. diced onions
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the chicken, jalapenos, cheese, cilantro, egg, cumin, salt, pepper, Worcestershire, onions, and garlic.
  3. Roll into about 16 meatballs.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes until completely cooked through.
  5. While still hot, toss with your favorite barbecue sauce.
Asian Noodle Bowl with Fried Eggs
2 packages of ramen noodles (any flavor, the seasoning is getting tossed anyway)
1 teaspoon vegetable or peanut oil
3 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon freshly-grated ginger
4 cups low-sodium chicken stock
4 eggs, cooked to desired doneness
Green onions
Soy sauce

1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and fresh ginger; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add the chicken stock, raise heat to high, and bring to a boil. Add the ramen (discard the seasoning packet) and cook, stirring occasionally, until done (about 3 minutes).

2. Meanwhile, cook the eggs to desired doneness.

3. Add ramen to a bowl (with as much or as little liquid as you like). Top each bowl with an egg, a sprinkling of green onions, and soy sauce and sriracha to taste.
