So good!

Almond-Crusted Chicken

This is a yummy way to make crusted chicken without the traditional bread crumbs. This is a tasty recipe for those who are wheat and gluten-free. I adapted the recipe from the Wheat Belly Cookbook, by William Davis, MD. Since we have been diagnosed with wheat/gluten allergies, dairy allergies and the list goes on…I am finding some creative ways to make good food.  Hopefully, this share will help someone else eat good!

Grapeseed Oil, Dijon Mustard, sea salt, and black pepper

1 cup almonds, chopped

2 large boneless skinless chicken breast

Directions

1.  Preheat oven to 375. Coat a baking stone or a baking sheet with coconut oil. (I used a cooking spray coconut oil).

2.  In a shallow bowl, combine the oil, mustard, salt, and pepper.  In a large Ziploc baggy, combine the almonds and flaxseed meal.

3.  Place the chicken breasts in a between 2 sheets of waxed paper or in a large Ziploc baggy, and pound with a meat mallet or a pie roller to 1/2″ thickness.  Dip chicken in the mustard mixture, spreading with a spatula to coat evenly. Put chicken in the Ziploc bag with the almonds and flaxseed meal. Be sure to coat both sides. Place the chicken on the baking stone or sheet.

4.  Bake for 25 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165 F and the juices run clear.

I knew coffee was a wonderful beverage that I must have in the morning, afternoon, or any time, however, I did not know I could use it for so many other purposes. This is a great article with useful tips and directions on how to use coffee for more that just a pick me up beverage.
Please be sure to visit the original post at http://theafterburnsg.wordpress.com/2012/08/29/wow-who-knew-all-the-things-you-could-do-with-coffee/

Originally posted on theAfterBurnSG:

To many, that morning cup of coffee is a ritual — an obsession, even. A solid 80 to 185 mg of caffeine per cup can kick start a morning, and it’s got even more benefits beyond the jolt. Each day 100 million American adults drink the elixir that’s been linked to improved mood, a lowered risk of some cancers, and increased calorie burn. Think coffee has no place past the mug? Here are some sneaky ways to get it into any diet.

1. Energy Smoothie

When iced coffee doesn’t do the trick, blend some Joe in a smoothie. Try a “ban-offee” version by blending ¾ cup of cooled coffee, a frozen banana, ¼ cup milk (of your choice), and a touch of maple syrup for a jolt with banana’s superfood powers. Extra perk: The potassium in bananas helps to replenish electrolytes lost from a night of boozing.

Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookies

My doctor told me that if I wanted to stop the constant stomach-ache and bloating, I would need to stop eating dairy and gluten.  I have been working on this for the last few months, and I have seen a difference.

Shopping for gluten-free/dairy free products is expensive and not always very tasty.  I decided to experiment with some of my time-tested recipes and see if I could make them gluten-free.  Here is one of my first and tasty tries. 

I love Snickerdoodle cookies. In the past, I used the recipe I found on the Betty Crocker website.  This gluten-free recipe for Snickerdoodles is a version of that Betty Crocker recipe. They are tasty, and they would make a great treat to bring to parties.  No one needs to know that these cookies are gluten-free. They are so good!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

2 large eggs

2 3/4 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

 

Directions:

 

1. Heat oven to 400ºF.

2. Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in Gluten Free Flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

3. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

 

Makes 3 dozen cookies

Samgria

1 bottle Spanish red wine

2 shots blackberry brandy

1 lemon

1 orange

1/2 pack strawberries

2 tbsp sugar

a splash of orange juice

2 cups ginger ale

1 pack raspberries

1 pack blackberries

Cut the lemon and orange into wedges or circles and cut the strawberries into quarters. Put them in a bowl and add the 2 tbsp sugar and mix. Add the wine, brandy, and orange juice to the fruit mixture and cover and let refrigerate for 24 hours. Before serving, add the 2 cups ginger ale and the blackberries and raspberries. Enjoy! I ended up making 3 gallons (4 servings) and people still wanted more.

A week’s vacation in Michigan at the lake was blissfully relaxing.  Meal Planning on Vacation made kitchen work easy, so easy in fact we found time to make breakfast muffins!  After a hard day’s work picking fruit with the kiddies, we hit the mixing bowl and turned out tasty treats.  An overabundance of strawberries directed our fruit of choice, but most berries or stone fruit should substitute wonderfully.  Pick your favorite and whip up a batch of sweet muffins for the ones you love!

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour

  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder

  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 1/2 cup Sugar

  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted

  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla

  • 1 cup Buttermilk

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 cup Medium Diced Strawberries mixed w 2 Tbsp Sugar

METHOD:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 and prep your pans (we made mini muffins in silicon pans)

  2. Chop your fruit of choice and mix with 2 tablespoons of sugar
