Ham & Cheese Pretzel Bites. Egg Drop. New categories for me.

Egg Drop

I’m filing this under ‘kids‘ and ‘breakfast‘. Not because it’s a specific food for children, but because my baby loves to eat this (will I ever stop calling him my baby? I somehow doubt it). This is by far his favorite breakfast -not to mention he loves to ‘help‘ me cook it – which makes it a fun thing for the both of us. If he likes it, chances are more toddlers out there like it and well, us moms gotta give each other a hand whenever we can, right! It’s just a little break from the traditional way of cooking eggs and it’s actually a pretty decent start of the day, nutritionally speaking. It’s not just fun to make but they’re also great to serve because they’re oh-so simple, but look oh-so good, and not just for kids! Ingredients: drop of olive oil 1/2 small onion grated cheese 1 tomato 2oz ham 2 eggs pepper salt Directions: Preheat your oven to 350 (175c) This was a breakfast for two, so if you need more just double (or triple) the amounts.

The egg saga. Grilled Shrimp with Smoky Barbecue Rub. Healthy Shrimp recipe, Healthy Spice Rub, Healthy Tex-Mex recipe, Protein, Seafood recipe, Shellfish recipe STRATEGY SESSION: By featuring shrimp in this recipe, I automatically keep total fat, saturated fat, and calories low.

Grilled Shrimp with Smoky Barbecue Rub

Because, in my opinion, the flavor of olive oil would not be compatible with this dish, I use macadamia nut oil, the healthiest of all neutral culinary oils. The holidays exhaust me. The weather in New England becomes a challenge and everything bogs down. The stores are crowded, the lines long; everyone seems grouchy. As I slog through the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, I notice that an increasing number of self-conversations begin “When this is over…” or “After the first of the year…”. At such times, I rely on recipes that require no thought and little effort. I get two kinds of satisfaction from this practice. Serving Suggestions: Without a doubt, my favorite accompaniment is black beans in almost any form. The Famous “Crack Dip” I had heard of this dip about a thousand times – originally called Buffalo Chicken Dip, it’s been nicknamed “crack dip” because its supposedly quite addicting.

The Famous “Crack Dip”

I thought, “hmm, anything with that title must be good!” , and then I read the ingredient list – canned chicken, buffalo sauce, blue cheese, ranch dressing….? BLECH! I’m sorry but that does NOT sound like something I would want to put in my mouth. So I never made it. Buffalo Chicken Dip (AKA: Crack Dip) 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup ranch salad dressing 1/4 cup blue cheese salad dressing 1/2 cup buffalo sauce or buffalo style barbecue sauce 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (shredded mozzarella cheese can be substituted) 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.

NOTE: Depending on your tastes and the ingredients on hand, you can use 1/2 cup ranch or blue cheese salad dressing rather than 1/4 cup of each. *I used sliced baguettes and celery for dipping…mmm, MMMM! Share: Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon Bites. I had an idea.

Honey Glazed Chicken and Bacon Bites

Actually, it was more like my three hundred and forty-sixth idea for this month and I now have the hips to show for it. No biggie, I consider it a small sacrifice for eating food that tastes this good. So I asked myself: “Would it be a really crazy idea to wrap loads of bacon around chicken strips and brush them with a spruced up honey marinade?”. Why yes, Kay, it would be. But frankly, I like crazy. See, now that’s what happens when you blog from your desolated home or kitchen (in the burbs). Anyway, it turned out nothing short of a phenomenal idea that I simply have to share here in my little corner of the www. Ingredients: 1 pound boneless chicken breasts 20 thin bacon slices 3 tbsp honey 2 tsp coarse mustard fresh lemon juice Optional: salt Directions: Cut the chicken breasts—or fillets, as we call them here—in thin strips.

Note: I’m using the Dutch equivalent to bacon in this recipe. Grab a bowl and combine 3 tbsp honey with 2 tsp coarse mustard. Chocolate Wasted Cake. Ever since my brother started using the phrase "I wanna get chocolate wasted" from the movie Grown Ups, I've been wanting to make this cake for his birthday. Being a chocoholic myself, I had no trouble coming up with ways to fill this cake with layer upon layer of chocolatey goodness.

Just looking at this cake, I think you'll agree that it definitely deserves its name. Photo Credit: Ryan Rivera To create this chocolate beauty, I baked two layers of delicious chocolate cake. Then, I drizzled each cake layer with some Kahlua. Then, I completely covered the sides of the cake with Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips. Next, I topped the cake with an assortment of chocolate candies. Last, I drizzled some melted chocolate all over the cake. I hope this cake inspires you to create your own chocolate wasted cake. Special thanks to Jef at My Food Geek for sharing some food photography tips with me recently. Liqueur for drizzling on the cake layers (i.e. chocolate, coffee or almond) Shredded Chicken Enchiladas.

Adapted from The Girl who Ate Everything. Season with Spice - Features: Homemade Spicy Ginger Ale. Is there real ginger in Ginger Ale?

Season with Spice - Features: Homemade Spicy Ginger Ale

If Ginger Ale did not include real ginger – with all its innumerable health benefits – why would our parents ask us to drink it when we have an upset stomach? Why would the canned drink be so popular on airplanes where many of us are prone to motion sickness? Real ginger can alleviate these symptoms. But when our stomach hurts and we’re munching on some dry crackers, or when the airline stewardess hands us that small bag of pretzels and asks us what we want to drink, we don’t think why we crave a can of Ginger Ale, we just order one. Some traditions never change. What began as Ginger Beer a few centuries ago in England – a concoction of ginger, water, sugar, lemon juice and ginger beer plant – eventually led to the creation of a non-alcoholic version called Golden Ginger Ale. While ginger beer and golden ginger ale generally have a high concentration of ginger, does dry ginger ale include the real spice? Process: 1. Frites & fries - Garlic Knots. Garlic Knots Most of my early food memories had to do with all the garlic dishes that my grandmother made.

frites & fries - Garlic Knots

Preschool-me was so fascinated by the fact that Grandma smelled like garlic 24/7 and I was always so amazed that something so small could create so much flavor. My grandmother’s native Shangdong province uses a lot of garlic in their cooking so it wasn’t surprising to see my mom or my grandmother use up an entire bulb of garlic for a small dinner.

Loving garlic is in my blood. When I make something with garlic in it, I tend to go nuts and use way more garlic cloves than necessary because I love using it. You don’t have to use the same amount of garlic I used in these garlic knots but here’s a rough guideline. Guide to Garlickyness (based on number of cloves used for these garlic knots): For 40-50 knots (adapted from White on Rice Couple): Dough: 1 3/4 c. water (about 115F)1/4 c. olive oil1 tsp. sea salt1 tbsp. granulated sugar1 1/2 tbsp. active dry yeast5 1/2 c. all purpose flour. Mini Chicken Chimichangas. Hot & Light Spinach-Artichoke Dip. Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole. Make this today.

Creamy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole

Sorry to be bossy. But this is important. I whipped up this casserole yesterday and loved it. I had a chicken in the fridge, a couple of boxes of mushrooms, and the sheer will to eat a big ol’ plate of comfort food. It resembles a tetrazzini more than anything, but is a little more on the simple/pared down side. I repeat: Make this today. Sorry to be bossy. Boil a whole cut up chicken for 30 to 40 minutes, until the meat is cooked all the way. Remove the chicken to a plate or bowl after it’s done… Scoop out a couple of cups of broth from the pot and set it aside… Then keep the rest of the broth simmering in the pot. Next, slice up some mushrooms. Then crack open a can of black olives. Chop them up pretty finely.

And I guess you could buy the already-chopped black olives. Heat a couple of tablespoons of butter in a large (as large as you have or you’ll regret it for the rest of your natural born life! Pour in some wine, sprinkle in some salt and pepper… And some pepper… Yum… Enjoy! Homemade French Fries.

Chicken Fried Steak. There’s nothing special about this dish, except that it’s a total miracle.

Chicken Fried Steak

It’s Chicken Fried Steak, is what it is. I made it for Marlboro Man last night because I like him, because he drove me all over Kingdom Come this weekend, because he stopped at a gas station each of the 4,322 times I asked him to because I kept drinking iced coffees (TMI?) , and because I like him. And because I like him. I think I’ll keep him. Make it for someone you like! And plan on keeping. To begin, you need an assembly line of ingredients: A plate of cube steak, which is tenderized round steak that’s been extra tenderized. You could also just use tenderized round steak. You could also buy regular round steak and beat it to smithereens with a tenderizer. You need a dish with milk and eggs… Beaten together with a fork. Next, you need a dish with flour. And some black pepper.

For the assembly, dip the meat, one piece at a time, into the egg/milk mixture. Turn it over to coat. Remove it from the flour mixture… And grody. Homemade Four Cheese Ravioli Recipe. African Chicken Peanut Stew Recipe. Like peanut butter? Chicken? Then this African chicken peanut stew by Hank is for you. Perfect for chilly weather. ~Elise Chicken, sweet potatoes and peanuts are one of those magical flavor combinations that make me feel all warm and happy, especially because I never would have thought to do this 20 years ago, when I met some fellow University of Wisconsin students from Ghana who made this stew at their apartment. The best way to make this stew is with two whole stewing hens—older chickens available at Asian and Latin markets. What is a little unusual about how you make the stew is that you first brown the chicken and then stew it on the bone.

Sweet potatoes or yams are a must in the African version, but if you hate them, use regular potatoes or turnips. The stew is supposed to be pretty spicy, so I normally use a lot of hot sauce thrown in at the end of the cooking. Use chicken legs, thighs or wings for this recipe. Ingredients Method. Bacon-wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites. 610K+Add bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy, smoky and crispy chicken nuggets. If you don’t like hot, leave out the jalapenos or skimp a bit. Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Chicken Bites Author: Recipe adapted from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood 8 chicken tenders, flattened and cut in two3-ounce package softened cream cheese1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped8 slices bacon, cut in half Dab ½ teaspoon (more or less) of cream cheese on top of each chicken tender.

Be sure to wear plastic gloves when handling fresh jalapenos. Death By Oreo Cupcakes. They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor. So, in this recipe there is Oreo's in the cake, in the frosting, and at the bottom is a Oreo surprise. That's right, you put a whole Oreo at the bottom of the cake. Ingredients 1 package Oreo Cookies, regular size 1 package Mini Oreo Cookies, for decoration (optional) 1 package chocolate cake mix (mix according to directions on box) 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), room temperature 3 3/4 cups powdered sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract cupcake liners Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
