With summer entertaining in full swing, how about trying this delicious skinny meatball recipe to serve up easy turkey meatballs to your guests. These are great for kids, too.

Blueberry Mojito Recipe

Blueberry Mojito Recipe |

I had a friend who went to Cuba, and when he got back, he threw a party and made everyone mojitos to celebrate! It was the first time I'd ever tried one and I loved the fresh mint and lime flavor. It tasted light, bright, and summery.

So check out this blueberry mojito recipe we're sharing. It's still got all the zestiness of a traditional mojito, with a lot more bold fruit. And doesn't the blueberry color look so vibrant? Wouldn't your guests love sipping on one of these on a hot summer night?

Pasta Arrabiata With Chicken Recipe |

I've noticed that recently, when we've gone out for Italian food, I've been ordering dishes with spicy red sauces. So I wanted to make one at home, and use it in a recipe my family would love.

Here's my pasta arrabiata with chicken ("arrabiata" is a fancy word for spicy red sauce)! It's delicious, wholesome, and so easy to put together.
