I know, we’re nearing the end of January, but, Happy New Year! I’m sincerely hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas/holiday season and are having a fabulous start to the new year! Thank you for hanging with me the last few months as I haven’t posted as often as I’d like…my Real Estate photography business keeps me super busy, but, my heart is still with this blog and I plan to see you here much more often! I’ve missed sharing with y’all, and, am so happy to post this mouth-watering recipe today for Low Carb Italian Baked Eggs that you absolutely have to try!
The season of Thanksgiving leading up to Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love our American Thanksgiving holiday and how it reminds us to be thankful. And Christmas…well, I just love everything about it. It’s of course fun to give and receive gifts, but, I love the spirit of the holiday! The beautiful sparkly decorations, and the specific time of year dedicated to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Plus, it’s finally cooler here in south Texas for a couple of days! 😉 So, on the subject of gift-giving, and being the chef wanna-be that I am, I’m making and giving Mason Jar Risotto Mix to give as gifts to some lucky recipients on my list this year!
Mason Jar Gift Risotto Mix includes arborio rice, dried wild mushrooms, minced chives, pine nuts, optional saffron threads… The how to package it and prepare coming this week!
Perfect for a teacher holiday gift, hostess gift, White Elephant game gift…endless possibilities! Stay tuned!
I just had to quickly share this tip with you! If you have a Kindle, you’re gonna love it!! It’s very easy to do…just download a PDF or Word document and send the attachment to your Kindle email address that you’ll find at your Amazon account. I didn’t even know I had a Kindle email address!!
Hectic days, call for easy, tasty meals! Today was one of those ‘Murphy’s Law’ kind of days, everything that could go wrong seemingly did. Endless traffic and lines that make me late are the bane of my existence since I’m always on a tight schedule, driving from one Real Estate photo shoot to the next. Of course, lucky me…I got behind THE slowest vehicle on the planet at one point with no way to get around him. He needs to take his ‘Sunday drives’ on a Sunday, already! OK, end rant. So, it’s the middle of October, but, we’re still experiencing summer temps here in the afternoon, so, I won’t be making my favorite fall soups just yet, but, these quick and easy spicy chicken lettuce wraps are stress free to make on days like this and they’re loaded with flavor (no exaggeration!) Perfect to whip up after a day like today. If yours was like mine, you need to make them too! And here’s a bonus, they’re low carb and gluten free, so, load up those lettuce leaves!!
See that cute little zucchini noodle bow with a knot in the photo above of my Dijon Zucchini Noodle with Ground Turkey and Mushrooms recipe? I didn’t take a ‘zoodle’ strand and tie it, honest!! I must have done some pretty fancy stirring! I have to say, I did a double-take when I saw it! What are the chances of that ever happening again??!!
I’ve been longing for a luscious risotto, but, didn’t want the carbs (that go straight to my hips) from rice, so, I used my food processor to turn the butternut squash into rice-like bits. In seconds, you’ll replace the high-carb rice to create this easy and delicious Butternut Squash ‘Riced’ Risotto with Peas and Parmesan!
After eating off-plan while in Dallas recently for the last concert of George Strait’s The Cowboy Rides Away Tour, it’s definitely time for paleo/cleaning eating again! It was a lovely mother/daughter bonding weekend, but filled with a little too much eating! For the first time ever, we had an InNOut burger. I love the way they offer their burgers wrapped in lettuce leaves as an option, and how about that mustard-fried technique of cooking burgers??!!
