Honey crepes


Cant wait to try…I will be using rice flour instead… or my new Gluten Free Flour by King Arthur Flour…

Hello!

After many trial and error attempts, I have finally come up with the perfect easy and delicious gluten-free crepe recipe! Here it is 🙂

Makes 2 Crepes

Ingredients

2 Heaping Tablespoons Chickpea Flour

1 egg

1/4 cup almond milk

2/4 cup water

Olive Oil

1 heaping tablespoon of organic honey

Mix it until the consistency is kind of like egg yolk, watery but not too watery!

Pour Olive Oil into a non-stick pan on medium heat

Pour enough of the crepe batter to cover the surface of the pan and cook for a few minutes until the crepe is cooked on one side. Flip it carefully  (I have to use two spatulas to kind of flip it at the same time, but it works!). Cook for another minute. Do the same with the rest of the batter. 🙂

Enjoy!

Can’t Wait to make…Might even make a video with this…

Last night I was reading some of my favorite blogs when I came across how to make homemade chocolate sauce from A Modern Christian Woman. I was so excited to make it this morning. My daughter L loves chocolate milk so it was fun to make it myself. It tastes delicious.

Your ingredients are :

1 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup of water
(I added a dash of vanilla extract as well)

Combine all ingredients into a saucepan

Stir until boiling and then continue to whisk for 2-3 minutes.

Once done set aside to cool. Once cooled I put it into my Wilton squeeze bottle for easier dispensing. You can either use it for chocolate milk or heat it for over ice cream. It is SO tasty!

Crabmeat Bisque Made Easy of course…


Old Bay Seasoning

Old Bay Seasoning (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

When I make a recipe I always try to make it as simple as I can with as few steps as possible.

Since I have to share it on YouTube so that a few of my friends in Upstate New York who used to be non-cooks can continue their cooking lessons and impress their new hubby’s with their great cooking it makes it necessary to add the listed recipe and video.

I try to either use ingredients that you normally have on hand or offer items that can be traded out for a substitute and will suggest on the spot what you can do.

I can totally see them panicking when they are making it that they do not have heavy cream or something in the list of ingredients and my phone is ringing lol…

So here we go world… 🙂

Crab Meat Bisque

4  (More lol) Servings

Crab Meat Bisque

3 tbsp butter (margarine)

4tbsp rice flour (reg flour is fine)

1/4 tsp Kosher salt (To taste)

1/2 cup diced celery

1/4 cup minced onion

1/8 tsp white pepper

1/4 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

1/2 tsp paprika (I am fortunate to have paprika paste from Hungary)

1 cup seafood stock (Chicken or Vegetable is fine) (I used Chicken and 1 box or 32 oz)

1/2 cup milk (I omitted)

1/2 cup half & half (I used 1 pint)

1 1/2 cup heavy cream (I used 1 pint)

2 cups real crab meat (Imitation really is different taste and mushier) (Shrimp or Lobster could be substituted)

(As an option potatoes could be added)

Melt butter in a sprayed pot over medium heat.  Stir in the onion, celery and spices, to saute the veggies but not brown.  Slowly add flour stirring to make sure lumps do not form.  Gradually add stock then other liquids.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 15 minutes to allow to thicken.  Add crab meat and simmer for about 5 additional minutes prior to serving.  Serve hot.

This recipe is for 4 servings so just double if you have a larger family… I made larger with intention of freezing half then had company lol…

I would have added red or butter potatoes diced if I had not been serving the Spinach Basil Pasta Salad with this dish.

Hope you enjoy and please feel free to view the video if necessary so you can start and stop at any time as you feel necessary.  Leave a comment after you make for any changes you would make to the recipe please.

PS watch the lid as my hubby came in and turned stove up a bit to make it cook a little faster and placed lid down so that it was not partially ajar.  Luckily I heard it click and went out to correct it.  He had tasted it early and was suddenly anxious to eat…had I known that I would have steamed the carrots prior to adding we usually do not eat for another few hours from now lol…thought it would be fine…now I have to watch to be sure it does not scorch… 🙂

He is supposed to be working lol

Thank you as always for viewing and commenting…

Since Pasta Salad was Finished, Here is an Easy to Make Dinner


Thought I would do an easy to make dinner to go with it of something that I knew would get hubby away from the computer and come into kitchen with his nose leading the way…

Smart Steamer to the Rescue

This is a great must have in any kitchen…Dr. Oz was smart to endorse this on his December segment…wish I had been in that audience cause I did not get a free one like they did…

Frozen Peas Any Brand

Tilapia

I do not even notice what brand as I shop for the ingredient list so that it is strictly that item in the bag due to allergies…

Sesame Oil

This is the only way that my hubby will eat peas and I make sure to place the peas above the fish so the sesame oil drips onto the fish prior to going into the water…adds a little flavor and activates the garlic and seasonal on the fish….

The water afterwards

The water is the only place that the microwave hit in this Smart Steamer the food is untouched by them.

Dinner is served

Hope you enjoy and the Smart Steamer goes right into the microwave along with the plates and forks…easy clean up…

 

Spinach & Basil Pasta Salad Made Easy


Of course I use the new pasta cooker from Tupperware that makes my life easier http://www.emanthetupperwareman.com   so I do not have a ton of pots to clean up later or a colander since it is all in one so I sort of skip those two steps… This original recipe called for bow-tie macaroni which I would have loved to have made it with but was out…so I had to settle for spirals…

Pasta Salad

16 oz or two cups of pasta

6 0z of spinach leaves or 1 pkg of frozen chopped spinach thawed

2 cups of fresh basil leaves (I thought this was a little excessive so I added less)

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (or what you have) I am certain it won’t tell if it was not extra virgin

3 cloves of garlic minced or equivalent in jar

4 oz or 1/2 cup of prosciutto or bacon, diced

salt and ground black or white pepper to taste

3/4 cup (freshly) grated Parmesan cheese

(Optional) 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts…I do not add due to people having allergies…

I added a small amount of Italian Dressing as it seemed dry

Check out my video to start and stop this at your leisure so that you can dance while making  and enjoy seeing how it is made prior to making.

Food Question I am posing to Readers and Fellow Cooks


Does anyone know what ratio I have to use of potato starch and cane sugar to sift and make confectioners sugar??? Since I can no longer get organic confectioners sugar (got spoiled when I lived in Upstate New York and I could walk across the street to the Organic Food Store there and just buy what spices and supplies I needed…down here in the South it is not so easy.

 

I grow my herbs in flower pots (my hubby stopped laughing two years ago).  I also grow my veggies in flower pots too.  Easier to tend to and if it is a huge down pour of rain we can bring them indoors…

Don’t mind us in the photo

Thank you for viewing and all ideas are a blessing…
