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!

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.

So good!

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

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

Little Girls Blowing Bubbles
http://www.freakingnews.com/ Balloon-in-Soap-Bubbles-Pictures-39033.asp

What fun would summer be without bubbles?  It is the season of bubbles, and with the 4th of July coming soon, you may want to have some bubbles around for your parties and BBQ’s. 

You can purchase pre-made bubbles at just about any store for a dollar or less.  This makes bubbles a very inexpensive toy for kids of all ages. Those colorful, plastic bottles of fun have a wand inside, so all you have to do is open the bottle, pull out the wand, and make bubbles.  It is possible to make your own bubbles using common ingredients around the house.  Here are a couple of popular recipes found around the Internet…

Recipe #1 

1 Part Dish soap (Dawn or Joy are the preferred brands)        15 Parts Water

Recipe # 2

1 Part Dish soap

10 Parts Water

.25 Parts White Karo Syrup

Ideas for Homemade Wands could include: a wire hanger, a straw, a piece of string, or an old pair of sunglasses with the lens popped out.  Be creative!

He’s Forever Blowing Bubbles
http://www.thesun.co.uk/ sol/ homepage/ news/ 2571335/ Hes-forever-blowing-bubbles.html

If you are looking for a conversation starter, you can bring up these interesting facts about bubbles.

1.   A Chicago company called Chemtoy began selling bubble solution in the 1940s.

 2.   Soap bubbles blown into air that is below a temperature of −15 C (5 F) will freeze when they touch a surface.

3.   About 200 million bottles of bubbles are sold annually.

 4.   Largest Free-Floating Soap Bubble: On October 9, 2005, John Erck of XTREME Bubbles blew the Guinness World Record largest free-floating soap bubble, 105.4 cubic feet (2.98 cubic meters) in size. If the bubble were filled with water, it would hold 788 gallons and weigh 3.2 tons. To give you another idea of its size, 13,627 baseballs would fit inside of it.

 5.   Most Bubbles Blown with a Tarantula in the Mouth: The longest time blowing soap bubbles with a tarantula in the mouth is 1 minute 27 seconds and was achieved by Bruno Meggiolaro (Italy) on the set of Lo Show dei Record in Rome, Italy, on 25 February 2010.  A second tarantula was walking over his body during the attempt. The record was part of the Italian TV show “Lo Show dei Record”  See the record at The Guinness Book of World Records.
