Buffalo Chicken Cauliflower Bread

Do you love cauliflower and buffalo chicken?  Try this recipe out if so, or if you want to try something new.  The recipe for the cauliflower crust came from another recipe, which I’ll post at the bottom.  The rest came from my own mind. If you’d like samples of the oils mentioned, please comment or…

Sweet Pepper Ranch Casserole

Do you love sweet peppers and want a recipe to make with those?  This is a great low carb recipe – next time I make it, I’ll add spaghetti squash to the bottom.  I will also cook the peppers a bit before piling the other ingredients on, so any water can drain from those first….

Beef and Broccoli with Rice

If you are a fan of beef and broccoli with rice, this is a great one to have. With the exception of hamburger, I marinade pretty much any meat that is cooked. The longer it’s marinating, the better, in my opinion. Marinades that I make include a beer or whiskey that isn’t the best, red…

Crescent Roll Tomato-Basil Squares

I was thinking this would be more of a snack, but ended up turning out to be part of dinner. Lessons learned: don’t forget minced garlic and place tomatoes closer to the edge… and maybe don’t cook as long. 🙂 Ingredients: 1 package of crescent rolls 2-3 tomatoes cut thin and dried with paper towel…

Egg Muffins

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be starting a new workout program, so what better thing to do on a cold, very windy, snowy day here in the UP of Michigan than look for those healthy recipes?  The title of this recipe is Healthy Egg Muffin Cups and here is the link – https://showmetheyummy.com/healthy-egg-muffin-cups/ I did modify this recipe…

“UP” Sushi!

For those of you that are not sushi fans, this is a post worth reading because I used to be one of those that refused to eat it.  It seemed as if every one of my friends loved sushi so I became a rebel and would say ‘no’ every time since I thought it was…

Baked Parmesan Tomatoes

It’s definitely been a transition to the U.P.  Tonight I ended up cooking jambalaya and Baked Parmesan Tomatoes with leftover asparagus.  That side is definitely better with a main fish dish like salmon, but I’ve been wanting to try these tomatoes for about a week. When making recipes, it is very hard for me to…
