It May Be Hot Outside, But It’s Chili Up In Here!

I won’t lie, I’ve been waiting until it gets warm outside to post this Chili blog entry so that I could use this title. So worth the wait.

This is the perfect, no fuss no muss, too tired to cook an elaborate meal, surprisingly healthy, one-pot Chili recipe. Throw all the ingredients into your slow cooker in the morning, and come home to a satisfying and delicious meal.


There are no subsequent pictures, because that’s how easy this recipe is :). Enjoy!


Meatballs!…not to be confused with the Snookie and Deena variety

These meatballs have very quickly become a favorite in our household. They are so full of flavor it’s hard to believe that they’re on the healthier side of meatballs…you heard me.

The fresh herbs in this recipe is really what makes these meatballs special.

Basil, oregano, parsley, onions, garlic, parmesan...how can they NOT be delicious!

A secret and unusual ingredient: soaked bread in the place of bread crumbs.

Roll the meatballs into the size of golf ball. I love how the color of fresh herbs pops so well!

To cook the meatballs, I let them simmer in marinara sauce for about 30 minutes. This cooking method makes them so moist and flavorful (and helps with the healthy factor).

We usually use the sauce on top of spaghetti, but I think they would taste pretty delicious on a sub as well.

So what makes this recipe healthier than normal meatballs? 2 main things. We are using fresh whole grain bread in lieu of breadcrumbs and there’s no oil! But you’d never guess based on how tasty these babies are :).
