|Ms Elaine is a lady at our local grocery store that Hallie just LOVES!|
With Valentines Day around the corner, I thought I would re-share my recipe for those Yummy Linzer cookies! I make them this time every year and people just go nuts for them! These cookies are just that good! As soon as someone hears that I have made some, a mob of people (cough…Dad…cough) are salivating and offering up the shirt on their backs just for a taste!!! For the Friends Fans out there…it’s like Monica and the candy!
|I wasn’t kidding!!|
I love me some carbs! It’s the reason I was skeptical to try this recipe and the reason I shutter when someone mentions cauliflower pizza crust…I’ve tried it…no it’s not the same…no it’s not a close substitute! Give me the thick warm flaky pizza dough and enjoy your cracker thin low carb “crust”. This recipe however was different! I almost didn’t even miss the starchy goodness of rice!!!
It was simple and you can prepare it with all fresh or frozen Veggies. I did a combination of what I had on hand.
Here’s what you need:
1 Small head of Cauliflower Riced in Food Processor (I say a small head because I feel mine made way too much!)
1 1/2 TBS Sesame Oil
2 small Garlic Cloves
1/2 Chopped Yellow Onion
8 oz Chicken or Beef
1 Cup diced Carrot
1 Bag Frozen Broccoli (or any other Veggie)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
3 TBS Soy Sauce
Chopped Green Onion as Garnish
Pour Sesame Oil Into Wok or pan with the garlic and Meat. Cook Meat Thoroughly.
Cube Meat and add Carrots and Onion
Cook until Onion is clear and carrots become soft
Add Riced Cauliflower and Mix for about 2 minutes while preparing Frozen veggies in Microwave.
Add Frozen Veggies and Mix again.
When all ingredients seem cooked through. Make a hole in center of wok for your eggs.
Crack eggs into the center and scramble in the hole you made.
When the eggs are scrambled, mix them in with the rest of the ingredients and mix in your spices and soy sauce.
Garnish with Green onion.
Hi friends! I am so happy that it is almost the weekend! I have a fantastic recipe (if I do say so myself) that you MUST try this weekend! It’s a Chicken Pot Pie recipe that I concocted because I was craving it the other day and couldn’t find a recipe with homemade crust that I liked! I made it last night and everyone licked their plates clean AND went back for seconds! So here goes:
1 1/2 C flour
3 TBS Sugar
3 ts Baking Powder
1/2 ts salt
1/2 C butter
3 TBS milk
2 carrots chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 yellow onion chopped
3 chicken breasts
your favorite poultry seasoning
1 package of frozen veggies of choice (Another reason I made my own recipe, I hate peas! I went with corn, more carrots, and green beans)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 C of whipping cream
(olive oil or butter for pan)
Mix dry ingredients for dough together.
Cut in butter
Add eggs and milk and mix well until dough is formed.
Cut dough in half leaving a slightly larger half and a slightly smaller one. Press larger one into a greased pie plate
Season chicken and pan fry. Cut into chunks and set aside,
Cook veggies in the same pan until soft.
Add chicken back into pan and add the cream of chicken and whipping cram. Mix well.
Dump mixture into pie plate and top with remaining dough securing sides and cut middle to vent.
Cook for 20-25 (until brown) at 375 Enjoy!
Your favorite clear tear free soap (1 Cup)
4 TBS Corn Starch
In a bowl Mix together the soap and cornstarch. Next separate mixture into small Tupperware for easy storage. (One for each color) Drop only a couple drops of food coloring into each container and mix well!

If you read my post about our crazy weekend, than you know that I made 2 sauces to top our Gnocchi for a Mother’s Day dinner for Christopher’s sweet Mom! I thought I would share the recipe for the Bolognese sauce because it is fairly simple even for a week night!

In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat, Saute onion and garlic until soft and translucent, Add carrots and celery and cover for 5 minutes, lifting lid every minute to stir. Add the ground meat and raise to high heat to fully brown meat while breaking it up. Once meat is fully browned add tomatoes, parsley and basil and stir over medium heat for a couple minutes. To finish add salt and pepper to taste. Top with cheese and enjoy!

I served this with a Cesar salad and some bread and it was delicious! Hope you enjoy!
Every once in a while I get a recipe that is just so delicious that I HAVE to share it! Last night’s Crock Pot Chicken Chili is that recipe! It is so simple and it was one of the tastiest recipes I have tried recently!
3 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 Package of frozen corn
1 yellow onion chopped
1 Can of black beans
1 Can of kidney beans
1 small can of tomato sauce
1 can of Rotel tomatoes (I use the HOT)
1 small can of diced green chilis
1 packet of taco seasoning
(Topping choices: Tortilla, cheese, avocado or french fried onions)
Place chicken in crock pot and pour over half of the taco seasoning. Then dump the remaining ingredients over the chicken topping with the rest of the taco seasoning and stir,
Cook on high in crock pot for 5 1/2 hours. At 5 hours shred the chicken and stir, then replace lid for remaining 30 minutes! Enjoy! (Like I said we used the Hot rote, tomatoes, so you might want to add some salt and pepper to taste)
I am always looking for a good easy recipe to try, if you have any, send them my way!
