For me there is nothing like baking on a cool rainy day here. I looked in my refrigerator and found some homemade apple sauce and maple syrup and remembered these cookies I use to make. These maple apple cookies are super easy with two bowls to separate the wet and dry ingredients (you could easily combine everything in one to save on washing up) Five minutes mixing, let the firm up for 30 mins in refrigerator, 15 minutes baking and you’ve got a batch of freshly baked cookies that have a great spiced apple taste that are a perfect mix of sweet and savory. Check out the recipe below and don't forget to share these with your friends and family.
Start my combing all of the wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls, mixing everything well. Once you have the wet ingredients all combined add the dry to the wet and mix until just combined. Using a 1" ice cream scoop make about 3 dozen balls on a prepared sheet pan and cool in the refrigerator until the balls are all firmed up, around 30 minutes. I place them all on one sheet pan to save a ton of room.
Once the cookies have firmed up, transfer them over to about a dozen on each pan. there should be about 3 inches between each cookie. Using a floured fork, make a crisscross pattern pressing the cookie down to about a 1/2 inch tall cookie.
Bake to cookies at 375 for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are a light golden brown. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let them cool. Once the cookies are cool, go and enjoy them with your family and friends. I am lucky to have one without my daughter trying to steal them.
All of my life I have had this fascination with the steak sandwich. There was a time in my life if i saw one on a menu of a restaurant I would order it, well that still is true!! I love the taste of the steak that a simple burger doesn't offer and with the addition of the great taste of grilled onions and peppers on this one it is just amazing favor in your mouth.
Preheat and oil your grill. In a bowl, add the garlic, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and vegetable oil. mix until combined. Add the steak and let marinate for 10-15 mins, you can marinate longer if you desire.
Cut the pepper into sections and the onions into 1/4-1/2in rings, keeping the rings together. Oil both sides of the peppers and onions.
Once your grill is hot on high, add the steak and vegetables until the vegetables are tender and the steak has reached 130-140 degrees internal. Let the steak rest for 10mins.
Preheat the broiler on your oven, mix the ingredients for the Aioli in a small bowl. Spread over each of the hoagie rolls. Slice the steak across the grain in 1/2" slices. Add to the hoagie roll equally and top with 3 slices of cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and bun begins to brown.
Looking for a quick and easy breakfast or midday snack that will keep you going. I know myself busy with a little toddler running around I need something quick and easy to get my day started and keep me going through the day. These oatmeal cherry cookies are a much better tasting then the prepackaged protein bars you find at your local store. These are soft and chewy, plus they have no added sugar and are gluten free so it can keep you feeling good and guilt free. Check out the recipe below.
These cookies have only few ingredients that are shown above. If you are not into big into the protein shakes, I found that stores like target (where i got it) carries single serve packets that will give you enough protein powder for 2x this recipe. The first thing you want to is preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Start mashing the bananas in the bowl until smooth. I find that a fork works great, but you can use a potato masher.
Once you got the bananas ready, you want to add the melted coconut oil and mix until smooth.
Add all of the remaining ingredients , start folding it into the banana/oil mixture.
Mix together until you get a firm ball that is all combined.
Divide the mixture into 12 equal balls, it should be about a golf/ping pong ball size. Press the ball down with your palm until the cookies are about 2" diameter wide.
Bake for around 20 minutes until the edges start to get lightly brown. Let cool on the sheet pan for a few minutes before transferring them over to a cooling rack and let cool completely. Cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Since the summer us upon us and barbecue season gets kicked into full speed these BBQ Dr Pepper Pineapple wings come in with a simple and easy recipe that will satisfy everyone at your your backyard barbecue. These wings big a great mixture of sweet, tart, and spice with the pepper. The marinate cooked down turns into a great sticky and sweet glaze that coats the chicken and your fingers in goodness. These also make great tailgating snack for the fall football season
The first thing you need to do is pop open a can of Dr. Pepper and start making the marinate for the chicken. you can use other caramel colored soda in replacement if you choose to. Add the Brown Sugar, Pineapple Juice, Garlic, Soy Sauce, Onion Powder and Red Pepper Flakes. Mix until sugar is well mixed into the liquid.
Once you got the marinate ready, rinse the chicken and add it to the marinate. Make sure all of the chicken is covered.
Cover and let the chicken marinate for about two hours, but you can let them marinate overnight. I like to uncover and mix everything about half way through so everything is equally covered and recover. Once you get to the two hour, Heat the Grill to Medium-high or oven to 400 degrees.
Cook the chicken until fully cooked (165 degrees) flipping them over half way through. Sound be about 10-15mins on the grill and 30 mins in an oven.
Once the chicken is on the grill, In a sauce pan, add the leftover marinate and heat over medium high and reduce down to 1/3-1/2 liquid is left. You want a consistence of cough syrup and corn syrup.
Once the sauce is finish, toss the chicken in a bowl with the sauce and serve.
One of my favorite breakfast items is homemade cinnamon roll, but sometimes you don't have the time to proof the dough and so on for the time consuming task of making them. This cinnamon pecan pound cake has the taste of a fresh cinnamon roll within half the time.It is also has light and airy texture like pound cake is known for.
Start off by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. Spray the baking pan with non stick spray.
The first thing you need to do is let 3 sticks of butter come to room temperature . Add the butter to the bowl of a mixer with a whisk attachment. beat the butter for a minute at high speed.
Slowly start adding the sugar slowly stopping to scrap sides when you are about half way through. Cream the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until the mixture is a light yellow and fluffy appearance.
Start adding the eggs one at a time, combining well before adding the next. Scrap the sides and bottom as needed.
Sift the four, Baking Soda and Salt together. making sure the mixture is fine with not clumps.
With the mixer on low setting, start adding the flour mixture to the wet mixture adding in 2-3 batches. Scrap the sides and mix until just combined.
Add the Apple Sauce, Vanilla Extract and Oil. Mix until combined, be careful not to over mix!!
Add the ingredients for the cinnamon swirl in a small bowl. mix until well combined.
Pour a of the mixture in the prepared baking pan, drizzle 1/2 of the cinnamon mixture ontop of the batter. Using a skewer, swirl the mixture into the batter. Repeat until all of the batter and cinnamon mixture is used. Bake for 1 hour and half until a knife or skewer comes out clean. Let the rest for 10-15mins before flipping it out of the pan. Drizzle the frosting over the cake once cooled for awhile.
This is a great change to the same old crab fish cake that is out there. With this recipe there is no issues with the cake falling apart in the pan like most recipes out there, but are still very tender and the fish is flakey with the addition of the potato. Try this out, the recipe is below.
The first thing you want to do is peel and dice the potato. I cut the potato into quarters long ways and slice into 1" pieces. Just make sure to cut into uniform pieces so everything cooks evenly.
Once you have the potato cut up you want to add the pieces to a small pot and fill with salted water until the water is early coving all of the potato pieces. and bring the potatoes to a boil, then let simmer for about 10mins until the potato pieces are fork tender.
Once fork tender use a spoon to mash the potato pieces, let cool and work on the Cod. For the cod, use a paper towel to past dry the fillets and salt and pepper both sides and brush with the olive oil. Cook in a 350 degree oven for about 15mins, or until fully cooked dependent on size and thickness of the fillets. Once cooked, let the fillets cool as you work on the egg mixture.
In a large bowl, add the eggs, green onions, minced garlic and parsley. Beat until the egg is well beaten. add the panko breadcrumbs and mix together. Add the cod and mash potatoes.
Fold the Cod and mashed potatoes, being careful keeping the cod in larger pieces. Mix to just combine. Cover and let rest in the refrigerator for 10mins.
Keeping your hands damp, form about 1/3 cup of the mixture into a 2-3in by 1 inch cake. Add the cakes to a lined sheet pan and keep repeating until you have all 12 cakes done.
In a large skillet, Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot add the cakes and cook in batches of 3-4 making sure not to overcrowd your pan. Cook on each side for around 3-4 minutes. Serve with Remoulade sauce, my sauce is 1/2cup of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons diced dill pickles, 1 tablespoon of join mustard, 2 teaspoon of lemon juice and a dash of cayenne pepper.
If you love saffron, this recipe is needed for the ready and if you never tried saffron what are you waiting for. This is a simple dish that takes one pan and a few ingredients that are readily available at the store. If you don’t know what saffron is, it is the dried stigma (tiny threadlike strands) of the Crocus Sativus Linneaus, a member of the iris family. It makes a very distinct yellowish color to the meal with a great bold flavor. Saffron is known to help with mental and heart health.
Now to the dish.
The first thing I do is dredge the chicken breast in flour that is seasoned with salt and pepper. (You can skip this step for health reasons) I do this for the coloring of the chicken. Add the oil to a hot pan and sear the chicken until it is golden brown and remove for the pan, you might need to do batches of this a couple times. The chicken should not be fully cooked since it will finish cooking later.
Once the chicken is finished being seared, add the diced onions and cook until golden brown then add the garlic and cook until the garlic is soft.
Add the rice and stir in until the rice and onion mixture is combined
Add in the Chicken stock
Then it is time for the star ingredient, when adding the saffron grind it softly between your fingers to break it up and let it release its aroma faster into the dish.
Add the frozen peas, add then frozen so they don't over cook and fall apart while the dish is cooking. Stir everything together thoroughly.
Add the chicken back into the pan. Cover the pan and let it cook over low for about 35 mins until the rice is fully cooked. I remove the chicken and give the rice one good stir before serving so everything is fluffed up.
