General Tso

I've been craving Chinese food for awhile now so I decided to give into that craving by making Martha's version of general tso chicken. The process is timely but the end product was well worth it.

Turkey Burger with Sweet Potato Fries

I'm so happy I found this recipe for turkey burgers. It's much better and more flavorful than the old recipe I had. I plan on trying some of Rachel Ray's fun burger recipes this summer too. I'll keep you posted.

This turkey burger is so yummy even Liz the typical "beef only girl" loves it!

You can make them as sliders and serve at a party or make them big like I do. Whatever you prefer. You can find the turkey burger recipe here.

I made some sweet potato fries for the side. It was a very satisfying meal. You can serve the sweet potato fries with brown sugar/butter, honey, ketchup, or just eat them plain. You can find the sweet potato fries recipe here. (To keep the kitchen cool this summer you can grill up the sweet potato fries)

Gnocchi with Summer Vegetables

This recipe came from one of my favorite magazines that I subscribe to, Everyday Food. It's another one that we can thank Martha for. They have a show on PBS that airs every Saturday.

This recipe jumped out at me while I was flipping through the magazine. It seriously was a 30 min meal. The tomatoes and the starchy gnocchi water create a delicious creamy sauce. I promise you'll enjoy! Super easy!

Mozzarella Panini

This is one of my favorite meals. It works as a great lunch or dinner. It's so yummy! The flavors of the roasted red peppers, mozzarella and pesto work so well together! Keep in mind- to save time you can buy premade pesto. I'm thinking about adding grilled chicken to this panini the next time I make them.
