No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake

This No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake is heavenly. It’s seriously no bake. The “cake” is really graham crackers that have gotten soft thanks to the whipped topping and strawberries. It takes minutes to put together, but the willpower comes in having to wait four hours for the graham crackers to soften. As soon as the timer went off, I ate one piece…and then I immediately ate another.
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries, washed
  • 3 1/4 cups whipping cream, divided
  • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosewater (optional)

Creamy Sausage and Spinach Pasta Skillet

Creamy spinach and sausage pasta.It’s simple, fast and creamy.
Ingredients
  • 6 oz. smoked sausage
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes w/chiles
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 oz. pasta
  • 3 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded monterrey jack
  • 1 whole green onion
Instructions
  1. Thinly slice the smoked sausage and add it to a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Saute the sausage over medium heat until it is nicely browned (about 5-7 minutes). Drain off the excess fat.
  2. Dice the onion and add it to the skillet. Continue to saute until the onion has softened (about 5 minutes). Add the can of diced tomatoes with chiles and the chicken broth. Stir to combine and dissolve any browned bits off of the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Add the uncooked pasta to the skillet and make sure it is all submerged under the liquid. Place a lid on the skillet and allow the mixture to come up to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for about ten minutes, or until the pasta is tender. Stir once or twice while the pasta cooks to keep it from sticking.
  4. Stir in the fresh spinach, one cup at a time, until wilted. If you add it all at once, the skillet will be too full to stir. Keep the heat on while adding the spinach, so the liquid will continue to simmer and thicken.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top, replace the lid, and let it sit for a few minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Slice the green onions and sprinkle them over top. Serve hot!

Chicken and Spinach Paleo Ravioli

Forgo processed flour by replacing pasta with thinly sliced squash for a 100-percent fresh ravioli dish. Even the accompanying "Caulif-redo" sauce, which skips heavy cream in favor of the white veggie and coconut milk, is good for you.
Ingredients
  • 4-5 medium to large yellow squash
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1.5 lbs. ground chicken
  • 1 8 oz. bag frozen spinach, thawed
  • 8 oz. mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • small handful fresh basil leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Caulif-redo Sauce
Instructions
  1. Cut ends of squash off and slice down the middle so you have two halves. Using the narrowest setting on your mandolin, slice the squash into long, flat strips. You'll end with around 70 or so strips.
  2. In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt and saute for about 5 minutes, until nearly translucent. Add garlic and saute until fragrant.
  3. Add ground chicken to onion and garlic and saute until chicken is cooked all the way through.
  4. Squeeze all the excess water out of the spinach, then ad chicken, spinach, salt, pepper, and mascarpone to a food processor or blender and puree until mixture reaches desired consistency (I like it relatively smooth).
  5. Assemble the ravioli by just barely overlapping two strips of squash (pictured above). Do the same over the middle of the first two strips, but perpendicular, creating a cross or "t" shape. 
  6. Spoon filling in the center of the cross, then bring the ends of the strips together, overlapping each other. If that doesn't make sense, just see the picture above.
  7. Secure with a toothpick.
  8. Before serving, steam raviolis for about 4 minutes, or until squash is tender and inside is warm.
  9. Top with Caulif-redo or sauce of your choice.

  4. Mix oil with crushed garlic clove. Set aside.

  8. Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Add some Parmesan/Pepper Jack cheese and chives.
  9. Broil for 7-10 minutes or until nice and crispy.

Pink & Zebra Striped Cake Tutorial

This was the coolest looking cake I have ever made! Easy to do, although next time I think I will try use different flavors of cake (for color, ie chocolate, white and strawberry) vs food coloring.
Ingredients
  • One batch of white cake batter
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • Black food coloring gel
  • Pink food coloring gel
Instructions
  1. Divide your batter into 3 separate bowls.  Leave one uncolored.  In the second bowl mix in cocoa powder and black food coloring gel (enough gel to get it the color you want… I added 1/4 teaspoon of the Wilton Fondant coloring paste/gel).  In the third bowl mix in pink food coloring gel until it is the color you want (you will not need as much as you used for the black).
  2. Grease and line the bottom of your pan (I used an 8 inch pan) with parchment paper.  I wouldn't skip this step because if the cake tears apart coming out of the pan, the effect is pretty much ruined.  Start off by adding roughly two tablespoons of your white batter to the very center of your pan.  Wait a few seconds for the batter to spread out.  In the center of your white batter, add two tablespoons of your black batter and wait for it to spread out.  Then add two tablespoons of your pink batter.  Your pan should look something like this:
  3. You will repeat this process until the pan is as full as you want it to be.  Don't make it too full because you do not want a overlarge dome to cook up.  And yes, this will take awhile… but it's not boring.  This is how the pan should gradually transform:
  4. Bake your cake as evenly as possible.  It helps to rotate the pan after 10 minutes of cooking.  Bake your batter according to your recipe's instructions.  Wait a few minutes after pulling it out of the oven, then turn it out but do not let it cool upside down.  Once it's cool, you can remove the parchment paper and decorate or top however you like.  Warning: you won't want to cover up that pretty top.

Slow Cooker Chipotle Steak Quesadillas

Beef Chipotle Quesadillas. YUM! I omitted the tortillas and ate the meat with cilantro-line cauliflower rice and avacado. Delish!
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pound flank steak
  • 4 chipotle peppers
  • 3-4 Tbs. adobo sauce (from the can with the peppers)
  • 4 scallions, diced
  • about a cup of cilantro, divided
  • juice of one lime
  • 3 Tbs. salsa
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups Mexi-blend shredded cheese (or more if you want!)
  • 8 multigrain tortillas (or any torts you dig)
  • 1 avocado
  • coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Instructions
  1. In a slow cooker, place the flank steak, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, scallions, 1/2 cup cilantro, lime juice, salsa and a good pinch of coarse salt and pepper. Cook on medium high for 4 to 5 hours. Flip it every hour or so. Your house is going to smell insane. The good kind.
  2. Shred the meat right in the cooker. Taste it. Need any more salt? Any more juice? Add a little more salsa if it’s on the dry side.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high. Add the tortilla to the pan. On one half, arrange some shredded cheese, then layer with the shredded meat, red bell pepper, some cilantro and more cheese! Always more cheese. Fold the tortilla over and sauté the quesadilla until the cheese has melted and the tortilla is golden brown on both sides.
  4. Slice in half and repeat until your heart does the Macarena.
  5. Mash up that avocado, then toss in some cilantro, lime juice and salt.

Simple One Hour Homemade Bread

What I love about this bread is that you can be in and out of the kitchen in about an hour with two gorgeous loaves. The bread itself is soft and moist with just a bit of chew. It makes great sandwich bread (we ate our BLTs on it recently!), wonderful toast, and is just as good eaten on its own.
Ingredients
  • 5 1/4 cups white bread flour
  • 2 – 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. (rounded) saf-instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. oil
  • 2 cups warm water (somewhere between 100 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit)
Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients.  Add oil and water.  Mix for 1 minute and then check the consistency of the dough.  The dough should be very sticky.  If it is too dry, add more water.
  2. Mix for 5 minutes.  (Do not add any more flour after the dough has finished mixing.)
  3. Spray kneading surface with cooking spray and turn dough out onto surface.  Knead dough briefly until it has a smooth even consistency (this will only take several turns of the dough to accomplish).
  4. Divide dough into 2 pieces (or more if you wish to have smaller loaves) and shape loaves into desired shapes and place on greased baking sheets.  Cover with a large dish towel and let rise for 25 minutes.
  5. While loaves are rising, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  When loaves are ready to go into the oven, use a sharp knife (you can lightly spray your knife with cooking spray to prevent dragging) to make several slashes in the top.  Make each cut about 1/4-inch deep at a 30 degree angle.  Bake loaves for 25 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

King's Hawaiian Bread

King's Hawaiian Bread - Luv This Stuff - To Warm a Piece Up Later, Just Put it In a Baggie (don't close it tight ) and Microwave for just 10 or 15 Seconds. So Good !

Ingredients
  • 6-7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple juice

Instructions
  1. Beat the eggs. Add the pineapple juice, sugar, salt, ginger, vanilla, and butter.
  2. Place 3 cups of flour in a large bowl. Stir in the egg mixture until well-combined. Sprinkle in the yeast, one packet at a time, and mix. Add the remaining 3 cups of flour and mix in. If dough is sticky and difficult to handle, add more flour. Dough should be slightly tacky, but not wet. Knead the dough for 5 minutes until it forms a smooth ball.

Blueberry Scones

Blueberry Scones. The best scones recipe I have come across!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 stick cold unsalted butter, grated
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • extra heavy cream for brushing the tops
  • raw sugar for sprinkling the tops
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup sugar, the baking powder, orange zest, and salt. Add the cold butter and mix at the lowest speed. Combine the egg and heavy cream and, with the mixer on low speed, slowly pour into the flour and butter mixture. Mix until just blended. The dough will look lumpy.  Add the blueberries to the dough, and mix on low speed until blended.
  3. Dump the dough onto a well-floured surface and knead it into a ball. Flour your hands and a rolling pin and roll the dough 3/4-inch thick. You should see small bits of butter in the dough. Keep moving the dough on the floured board so it doesn't stick.
  4. Shape the dough into a square. Cut the square into quarters then cut again into eighths, diagonally, making triangles. 
  5. Brush the tops of the scones with heavy creme, sprinkle with sugar and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are browned and the insides are fully baked. The scones will be firm to the touch.
  6. Serve warm with butter and preserves.

Broccoli, Mushrooms, Ham, and Cheddar Baked with Eggs

This recipe has broccoli, mushrooms, ham, and cheddar and just enough egg to keep it together.
Ingredients
  • 1 lb. brown or white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 4 cups broccoli flowerets, cut into fairly small pieces
  • 2 cups diced ham (if making this for the South Beach Diet, use lean ham with not more than 10% fat)
  • 2 cups grated low-fat cheese (I used Four Cheese Mexican Blend)
  • 12 eggs
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (or your favorite all-purpose seasoning that's good with eggs)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 10" x 14" glass baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in large frying pan, then saute mushrooms until they're soft and liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes. While mushrooms cook, chop broccoli and bring a large pot of slightly salted water to a boil. Put chopped broccoli into water and cook 2-3 minutes (not longer, because the broccoli will cook more when this bakes.) Drain broccoli into a colander placed in the sink, and let drain while you chop the ham.
  3. In a glass baking dish layer the blanched broccoli, sauteed mushrooms, diced ham, and grated cheese. Beat the eggs with the Spike Seasoning and black pepper and pour over the other ingredients. Use a fork to gently stir until all the broccoli, mushrooms, ham, and cheese are coated with egg.
  4. Bake 50-60 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top of the egg bake is slightly browned. Serve hot, topped with a dollop of low-fat sour cream if desired.
  5. I wouldn't freeze this, but you can bake it on the weekend and keep in the fridge for breakfasts all through the week. Reheat in the microwave for only 2-3 minutes.

Chocolate Lava Cake

Legend has it that this chocolate lava cake was the result of a major culinary disaster. The dessert was meant to be individual chocolate cakes, but a cook took them out of the ovens to soon, and the centers where still liquefied. Since there was no time to cook them further, the Chef simply introduced the dessert as chocolate “lava” cake!

Pizza Nachos

A new take on standard nachos by jazzing them up pizza style. Your nachos will never be the same.
Ingredients
FOR THE GARLIC CREAM SAUCE:
1-½ Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
½ Tablespoons Olive Oil
3 cloves Garlic, Minced (or Use A Microplane If You Have It)
½ cups Heavy Cream
¼ cups 2% Milk
1 pinch Salt
1 pinch Cracked Black Pepper
1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
¼ cups Parmesan Cheese, Grated
FOR THE NACHOS:
Your Favorite Crispy Tortilla Chips
½ cups Garlic Cream Sauce (Recipe Included)
¼ cups Onion, Diced
½ cups Pepperoni, Cut Into Bite Size Pieces
½ cups Black Olives Sliced
½ whole Green Bell Pepper, Seeds Removed, Diced
1 cup Colby-Jack Cheese, Shredded
Instructions
Start by making your sauce. Begin by melting the butter, along with the olive oil on medium to low heat. Once melted, toss in the minced garlic, and give a good stir. Raise the heat up to medium, to medium-high. Add in the cream and milk and give a good stir. Keep stirring until it comes to a boil. Toss in the salt, pepper, and chili flakes, along with the cheese, and continue stirring. The sauce will thicken pretty quick, so continue to stir. Once the sauce is thickened, remove from the burner, and set aside.

When you are ready to make your nachos, preheat your oven to 400ºF. I used a cast iron fajita skillet for this. If you do not have one, don’t worry, simply build your nachos on an oven-proof dish. First add your chips. Drizzle the garlic cream sauce all over the chips. Top with the onions, pepperoni, olives, and bell pepper. Make sure you get in there and do some great layering, leaving no chip behind.

Top with the Colby Jack cheese. Place in the preheated oven, and cook until the cheese is nice and bubbly and the veggies are warmed through, roughly 7 minutes or so.

As I sat down in front of the television to watch some football, I said to my wife that these could be my go-to nachos from here on out. Something about those deluxe pizza flavors when placed on a tortilla chip just gets your taste buds rocking. Give these a try and let me know what you think!

The great thing about these pizza nachos, much like any nacho, is that you can make them your own way. Don’t like pepperoni? Try something else. Don’t like olives? Try artichokes, or broccoli, or heck, you can see where I’m heading. Use your imagination. I can guarantee you will love them. By the way, the garlic cream sauce will keep in the fridge for a handful of days. Feel free to use the leftover sauce on a pizza.

Honey Roast Peaches

Honey Roast Peaches. Slice in half and remove stone. Top with a tab of butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. Optional-top with marscapone cheese honey and almond slivers.
Ingredients
  • 4 Peaches
  • Butter
  • Honey
  • 250g Marscapone
  • 150ml Double cream
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  • Flaked almonds
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F and slice your peaches into halves, removing the stones as you go.
  2. Place the halves into a baking tray and top each with a little knob of butter.
  3. Drizzle honey over the top. Be as generous as you like, but remember peaches are already quite sweet so don't go crazy.
  4. Pop them into the oven for about 20mins. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn. While they're bubbling away, you can make your cream and toast your almonds. In a bowl mix together your marscapone, cream & vanilla. Place to one side or in the refrigerator if you're making it ahead of time. Heat a dry frying pan and when it's good 'n' hot, add your almonds. Flip them around the pan, taking care not to let them burn. When they're nice and brown, tip them out and leave to cool. After 20mins your peaches should be bronzed & bubbling. Remove them from the oven & serve.
  5. Pop a peach onto a plate, spoon some of the sauce from the pan over the top, smother in marscapone cream & sprinkle with almonds.
  6. For a casual pudding for friends and family I recommend two halves each, for dinner party guests I think one half is probably enough and it looks more refined.
