I made a version of this tonight. I used that al fresco chicken sausage and I skinned the potatoes. I also used a few splashes of Tabasco sauce. It was easy and good, however, it could definitely still use something — I’m just not sure what. Oh, and I did not use the bacon grease — I used the olive oil.
A little time consuming but I actually found it calming and fun
Just cut mini marshmallows on a diagonal and arrange them with the sticky side up—start from the outside.
They look best with 3 circles of marshmallows.
Put mini chocolate chips in the center, then sprinkle on sugar crystals of your color choice!
If you make the flowers with only 2 circles, trying your best to lay them flat, then make a big center of chocolate chips, and sprinkle yellow—they look just like sunflowers!
She has recently adopted a gluten-free diet and I would love to collect some geeky/pop culture/literary-referenced recipes that are gluten-free already or can be adapted to be gluten-free.
To get some ideas flowing, we’re teaching One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Kite Runner, Jane Eyre, Big Fish, In Cold Blood, myths (including Hercules, Gilgamesh, Ramayana) if you can think of anything. I will also be changing names for recipes to make them more literary-themed.
For example, I’m adapting a Lembas Bread recipe for her. I’m interested in multicultural recipes, desserts, breakfast, snacks — EVERYTHING! I’d also be willing to send out the completed cookbook file to anyone who wants it!
Hey, I’m a little late posting this. Annie has always been a good friend to me. If you can help her out, I’d appreciate it!
Any favorites you care to share? I’ve been trying to look for easy freeze recipes since school starts back for me next week (and as a 1st year I KNOW I won’t be eating well if I have nothing prepared ahead of time)
The following are recipes I’ve tried, like, and freeze well.
Skinny Taste Chicken Nuggets - So good, taste just as good heated up as they did the first round.
Breaded Pork Chops — not exactly the healthiest, but so yummy. I let the meat sit and dry for a bit after flouring it. Chops with the bone in are juicier.
Tangy Beef Turnovers - this is my favorite meal to make, except I use Smoked Gouda cheese because I don’t like Swiss. I think a few different cheeses would work. 1 serving equals 179 calories, so make sure to pair it with some vegetables.
Kielbasa freezes well. I boil them until they are cooked. Freeze them like that. When I am ready to eat it, I heat it up on a frying pan till I can cut through it. Then I slice it up, put it back in the frying pan and put about 1/3 cup of orange juice it. Cook on medium until the orange juice is almost all gone. Make sure to turn the pieces over every now and then.
Sour Cream Chicken - this is really good. I changed it slightly after the first time I made it — it is healthier / easier. I use Plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream — and I used as much that is needed to cover all the parts of the chicken that is covered. This is what makes the dish. Also, sorting out the seasoning from the stuffing is annoying, so I use half Italian panko bread crumbs and half regular Italian bread crumbs. Tastes about the same and is a little healthier.
I also freeze my mom’s pepper steak recipe, and a lot of different casseroles. But I don’t have those recipes on me.
Also, I reheat things either in a sauce pan, the oven, or a toaster oven (depending on the recipe). I don’t like what the microwave does to food when I am reheating.
I like breaded pork chops. Every time I make them (instead of my mom), the breading comes off as soon as I cut it apart.
Anyone have any tips or recipes?
