Banana Bread Cream Stuffed Crepes

Since we are only in Massachusetts for a few weeks; I am trying to use up everything I have before we go back home to Florida.  I made my Crepes recipe that has been carried down from my Grandfather but if you want to use Paleo Crepes - Go here for my Paleo Recipe.

The banana cream does taste like the batter for your bread!  So yummy...

Banana Coffee Cake with a Crumble Topping

I always think banana bread when those bananas are nice a ripe on the counter.  Today I decided to make more of a breakfast cake in a 9 inch pan.  Slicing the bread with a side of fresh fruit was a  perfect weekend breakfast with our coffee as we sit outside enjoying the amazing Florida weather.

Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail
  • Time: 10 minutes
  • Complexity: very easy

Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail

I wasn't sure what to call this delicious cocktail. I decided to name it a Berry Mint Lemonade Vodka Cocktail. I filled my blender with these summertime ingredients and we all enjoyed this cocktail. You can make it as a virgin drink by omitting the vodka.

This recipe served 4 of us! I made fresh lemonade without sugar and the pear nectar is optional. I made the first batch without the pear nectar and when I was making the next batch I realized I had some in the refrigerator and decided to use it.. Really yummy..

Of course I used my KitchenAid® 3-Speed Blender!

Doesn't everyone just love Strawberry Shortcake!  Everyone I know does and there is nothing better than homemade shortcakes.  It also tells your family or friends that you love them!  

Cindy's Note:  If you have the "big" sugar that would be great to sprinkle on top.  If not, just use your regular sugar!

 

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs
  • Time: 3 hours
  • Complexity: easy

BGE Sweet and Spicy Ribs

We just love our Big Green Egg and since my husband has made Pulled Pork 3 weekends in a row I decided to change it up for Labor Day weekend and make some ribs!

Here is recipe for the rub! (this recipe is for 2 racks of ribs)

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Combine together...  Rub the ribs, wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Cindy's Note:  I made this for 4 of us so I cut the ribs in half to make everyone an individual serving. You can keep it whole or cut it half.  It was also easier for the EGG.  I just love my Simply Organics Spices!

Black Bean and Quinoa Burger

I have found myself following a more Mediterranean diet due to some stomach issues I have been experiencing.  Not fun!  CAT scans, Ultra sounds, Endoscopy, Medications and still no resolution.  I have adjusted my diet just a little and I am feeling relief.  I just love quinoa and made a batch of beans.  I even made my Paleo Tortillas and it was the perfect match!  Enjoy this healthy burger!

Canned Rasin Bread

I was watching the food network and caught this recipe.  I had the large 28 ounce cans from sauce and changed the recipe a little to accommodate the larger cans and make them more of an adult bread. 

From Cindy!  I don't like to open a package for just a portion of the ingredients.  Therefore I also wanted to use the entire container of raisins!

Channa Masala

My husband was in India a few months back and our friends sent him home with a suitcase full of spices.  I decided to make a dish with some of my favorite ingredients chickpeas and peas.  Traditionally this dish is not prepared with green peas but I love them so they were added and I loved every bite!  

I have to admit that these spices are not used often in my kitchen and the combination was a little hot " spicy hot" for me but I still enjoyed it very much.  I will defiantly make it again.

I also made a batch of my Paleo Naan Bread to dip in the sauce and what a super yummy dish!

Chocolate Chip Cannoli Cookies

I love cannoli's!  Let's just start there.  I remember when I was little my Nana and I would spoon out all of the ricotta filling from the shell of the cannoli and would laugh like little kids.  I really miss her especially around the holidays.  I just hope I am as good as a grandmother as she was to me!  

I came up with these cookies as it has the ingredients as a cannoli but in the form of a cookie. 

Please enjoy and Merry Christmas xo

Creamy Salmon Piccata and Pasta

We have been on the go for all of December and tonight I felt like a comfort salmon dish.  I am starting HEWfit in a few weeks and decided salmon and pasta was a perfect dinner for us.  As an Italian pasta was always a frequent visitor but over the past several years it makes a rare appearance.  When we do eat pasta it's a small amount.  Tonight the salmon will be the star but it will be yummy for us to enjoy!  

Go ahead and give this recipe a try!  I bet it would also be great with spaghetti squash too.
