Lasagna Rolls

Here is a twist on traditional lasagna. All the classic flavors but in a tiny cute package! Give this recipe a try!

Ingredients:
⦁ Lasagna Noodles -9
⦁ Ground Turkey -1 lb
⦁ Spaghetti Sauce -1 jar
⦁ Ricotta Cheese – 1cup
⦁ Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
⦁ Parsley Flakes – 1tbsp plus some reserved
⦁ Dried Oregano -1 tbsp
⦁ Hamburger Seasoning – to taste
⦁ Black Pepper – to taste
⦁ Paprika -to taste
⦁ Egg -1

Prep:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the oregano, parsley flakes and egg into the ricotta cheese and set aside for assembly station.
Cook the ground turkey until brown and add seasonings. Pour enough of the spaghetti sauce on the meat just to coat it and set aside.
Boil the lasagna noodles in salted water for 8 mins, drain and cool and set aside.

Procedure:
Add some sauce to the bottom of a greased baking sheet and spread it evenly. Take 1 lasagna noodle and smear some ricotta cheese on it (a little more than a table spoon is a sufficient amount), Add about a tablespoon of the meat mixture and roll the noodle up. Place it in the baking sheet and add a little additional meat to make sure the roll is filled. Then repeat until all the rolls are filled and placed into the baking sheet. Cover with the remaining sauce and sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese on top. Then sprinkle reserved parsley flakes on top. Bake at 350 for 30 mins with foil on and then remove the foil for 10 mins.

Let cool before serving.

X’s Lime Whiskey

This drink was a collab with a good friend of mine X (hence it is named after him). Thanks for the idea Buddy!!

 

What I love most about this drink is how the honey and lime flavors are the stars of the show taking the edge off how harsh whiskey can be but at the same time the whiskey makes itself known in the background (like a strong and silent type of man lol). It’s perfectly rustic and elegant. It’s as strong and masculine as it is feminine and delicate it’s perfectly versatile. This drink is just as perfect for a night out with the guys as it is for a cocktail party. I recommend you try this!

Sunny Delight: Cocktail

This week I decided to go through my old recipes and revamp them. I love testing and retesting recipes. And I don’t stop until I am absolutely sure they are perfect!

There is one cocktail recipe from my past which I have had a love-hate relationship with for years. Initially, it was called Wally’s World (Don’t ask why, I don’t even know) and after many variations of the recipe it is now called Sunny Delight!

It’s definitely a bright and very flavorful drink that can be made without alcohol as well. Best served in an old fashioned cocktail glass.

The lemon slice garnish reminds me of a bright & shiny sun. It’s very tropical; it’s like taking a mini vacation.

As summer is fastly approaching, Please give my summertime cocktail “Sunny Delight” a try!

 

There are two variations of this drink depending on if you like a sweeter drink or a less sweet drink. See Below.
