Smoky Portuguese-Style Mussels

Mussels are one of my favorite quick meal options — they take just 5 minutes to cook! This recipe for Smoky Portuguese-Style Mussels infuses the broth with turkey kielbasa and smoked paprika before steaming the mussels in the broth, resulting in a really flavorful dish. The broth is really spectacular, so be sure to serve this dish with a sliced baguette. (Note: the whole dish takes about 30 minutes to cook.) Ingredients: 2 teaspoons canola oil 4 ounces chopped turkey kielbasa 1 1/4 cups chopped onion 8 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1 pound red potatoes (I used assorted baby potatoes) 2 cups unsalted chicken stock 1/2 cup white wine 40 mussels, scrubbed and debearded 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt 4 lemon wedges parsley, for garnish 1/2 baguette, sliced

Slow Cooker Nutella French Toast Casserole with Caramelized Bananas

As most of the U.S. has been dealing with seriously cold weather and snow, I thought it was time to share another French Toast recipe. Without fail, people always go out before a storm and stock up on bread, milk, and eggs so French Toast is the perfect meal on a snow day. This recipe is based off my Slow Cooker Apple French Toast Casserole, but incorporates Nutella and tops it off with caramelized bananas for good measure. I love using my slow cooker for French Toast because it makes a bunch of servings to either share with a group or pack up and enjoy all week! Ingredients: 1 loaf challah bread (about 1 pound), cut into cubes 6 large eggs 2 cups vanilla almond milk (or normal milk) 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 heaping tablespoons Nutella, plus more for topping Pinch salt 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 4 bananas, sliced 1 tablespoon brown sugar
