Southwestern Turkey Burgers

Have a healthier barbecue — lean ground turkey burgers flavored with chili powder and roasted poblano peppers, dressed with chili-spiced mayo. In summertime, we usually end up having burgers at least once a week. And since I prefer to use 85/15 ground beef (85% meat/15% fat), well, those calories can add up. And that's before …

Lemon-Sage Chicken Cutlets

I have to confess, I think I have a problem. I think I'm addicted to sage. I use it every chance I can. I love it.  I typically pair it with foods associated with autumn, like butternut squash. When I saw it paired with lemon in this chicken dish in Food Network Magazine, I put …

Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs

I love making new dishes and trying new ingredients. Sure, I have some "tried and true" dishes that make an appearance every now and then, but a big part of my love of cooking (and eating!) is tasting new things.  I had ground chicken in my refrigerator for my son. The plan was to set …
