Cheeseburger Sliders - Tasty

Burger sliders are essentially small burgers that can be cooked for any birthday - whether it’s for a 7-year-old or 43-year-old. Serve with fries, salad, nachos, and any other side dish.

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot pies embody the essence of homemade food. This is a comforting and satisfying meal that you know everyone will love.

Mussels in White Wine Sauce

The flavors of the creamy, white wine sauce with the salty mussels is complemented beautifully. Finish the meal with a large chunk of fluffy bread to mop up the sauce.

Lamb Shanks

This is a fairly “grown up” dish due to the white wine ingredient, and it’ll make you feel like you’re in a fancy restaurant. Serve with potatoes and you’ve got yourself a posh dinner.

Sweet Potato Fries

It’s the perfect blend of sweet and savory, and they’re so easy to make spicier if you want. Also, you can serve sweet potato fries on the side of virtually any dish - burgers, chicken wings, ribs, sloppy joes, and more.
