Baked Chicken (or Veggie) Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are my go to whenever I am ordering Chinese food. I love those crispy little morsels! But whenever I thought about making them at home I didn’t have a deep fryer nor did I want to waste a ton of oil in a makeshift deep fryer. Luckily I did some research and learned that baked spring rolls are indeed a possibility. And holy heck they might just be the tastiest thing I’ve made since starting this blog (or at least top 10!). I tried this recipe for the first time this past weekend for a gals trip up North. Let’s just say it was certainly not my last time making them! Find the super easy and flavorful recipe below.

Seafood is one of my favorite things to eat when I go out for dinner. But I used to shy away from it in the kitchen because it can be very delicate and often times requires the perfect amount of cooking to get it just right. BUT I have some good news, its not that hard! For the past two years, over Christmas, my boyfriend and I have made these yummy white wine mussels and I’m thinking they should make an appearance more often than that! With Valentine’s day just around the corner, what better time to try out a new recipe with your other half.
