3 ingredient Kale Chips

3 ingredient Kale Chips

Kale chips are super easy to make or can be super easy to mess up!  We know that is true.  They are just so yummy...

Here is what you need to know to make the perfect crispy kale chips!

First take your kale and remove the ribs. You can easily do this by holding the bottom rib from the leaf with one hand and use the other hand to grip onto the rib and move your hand up the leaf separating the two from each other.  Next, either chop or tear the leaves into small pieces and place in your colander.  Rinse throughly then dry.  I like to lay paper towels down on my counter then create an even layer of the leaves.  Top with another layer of paper towels and press down.  You want the leaves dry before baking them into chips.  If they wet... they will burn!

Amatriciana

I love starting my Italian cooking with pancetta and onions! This is a great way to make a traditional Italian Sauce.

Amatriciana goes great with seafood, chicken cutlets or even pasta! It does have a different taste than your Italian marinara but once you give it a try…

You will love it.. Sometimes I add capers right before serving! Cooking Italian is certainly my favorite! Enjoy…

Asparagus Popover

My family loves popovers and I enjoy making them for them.  We all so the popover dance together.  I had some fresh asparagus and my Lodge Cast Iron pan was on the stove already to sauté them.  Last minute I decided to create a large popover and I was so happy that everyone just loved it.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did!  xo Cindy

Note:  My pan is 12 inches and this recipe was developed to fit this pan.  I you have the 10 inch pan you will want to alter the recipe.

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.

Blackened Seared Yellow Tail Snapper with Sautéed Vegetables

In Florida we can get some amazing fresh fish.  While at the market I spotted Yellow Tail Snapper wild caught and local.  I had all of the other ingredients to make this amazing dinner for 2.  This is a great dinner if you are following the Paleo diet or a healthy Mediterranean diet

Note:  You don't have to buy blackened seasonings as I am sure all of the spices are at home in your cabinet.  

Julienne is a knife cut where you slice long strips and keep them all in the same length. 

 

 

Coconut Crusted Cream Pie

  • Complexity: easy

Coconut Crusted Cream Pie

I love custard and coconut with a little chocolate so this recipe was created.  I was just in my kitchen looking in the cabinet and this is what happened.  So good..  However, I ate the left over custard that was in the pan before dinner.  Needless to say I didn't eat my dinner :)

 

Easy Blackened Pan Seared Red Snapper
  • Time: 15 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

Easy Blackened Pan Seared Red Snapper

Seriously! This is the easiest blackened pan seared snapper you will ever make.  This is also amazing.  I served it with haricots vert topped with fried shallots.  I will share that now.

Take a sauté pan over medium heat.  Add in 2-3 tablespoons of oil.  Once the oil is very hot (how do you know it's very hot did you ask?  Great questions - when the oil starts to move to the side of the pan)  Toss in thinly sliced shallots and cook until crispy.  Remove from pan.  Keep oil in the pan.  When ready to make the haricots vert add them to the hot pan with some garlic, salt and pepper.  Cook until tender, remove from pan and top with shallots.  

Next tip! Did you know most seafood departments will provide the seasonings.  Yes, that is true.  We got this snapper at Whole Foods and they seasoned for us.  How easy was that... 

Enjoy xo

Caponata is a Sicilian dish that was always served as an appetizer.  You can dice it very small and use a dip with endive leaves or prepare chunky.  It is a great accompaniment to many dishes such as a grilled swordfish or over roasted chicken.

Italian Filled Braciole

Italian Filled Braciole

Braciole is a popular Italian dish. Using flank steak works the best as it becomes very tender after slow cooking all day.  You can roll the meat with your favorite filling.  I had frozen kale handy along with the other ingredients.  I picked up the flank steak at Joseph's Classic Market.  

Enjoy this Italian specialty!  

PS  If you don't have kitchen twine at home just ask your butcher! They will be more than happy to provide some for you.

Paleo "Riced" Turkey Stuffed Cabbage

I have a few Stuffed Cabbage recipes and links are provided below.  This recipe was inspired by the lonely cabbage left on the shelf at the farmers market, ground turkey I already had in my freezer and the 2 cups I reserved from this recipe.

When I make a baked dish like this I always take a moment to decide how I want to serve it.  I just love my Emile Henry baking pans.  They are great from oven to table!  Just wanted you to know that!  xo

Paleo Chicken Cordon Bleu with a Dijon Gravy

Chicken Cordon Bleu is a thin breaded cutlet with ham and cheese rolled inside.  I love this dish because it's perfect for 2 or 6 or 8.  You can get these prepped in advance, store in the refrigerator and when you are 35 minutes to eat just bake and serve.

Enjoy our Paleo version of Chicken Cordon Bleu.

Paleo Fruit Tart

If you know me or follow me....  Then you know my granddaughter Brooke.  We love our time together and she loves to bake!  I am a cook and she is the baker. When we are together it's mostly baking we do.  It's great that she can fly down to Florida in the winter during her school breaks as an unaccompanied minor. Then again she has been traveling with me since she was 2.

We were at our farmers market on Sunday and got our vegetables along with strawberries and blueberries. I already had bananas (which we are making our pudding with in this recipe) and the other ingredients for a fruit tart.  My tart pan is 11 inches so this recipe is measured to fit.  Adjust if you are using a 9 inch.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did....

Spicy "Riced" Sweetheart Egg Bites

I have been over indulging in vegetables and just love it.  I had 1 head of both cauliflower and broccoli and wanted to use them up.  I decided to rice both of them in my food processor and create 2 recipes.  One is for these little spicy sweetheart bites for Valentine's Day and the other I am going to use in my stuffed cabbage. The recipe will be similar to this recipe except I am using ground ground turkey and the riced cauliflower/broccoli and not the zucchini.

I made these in mini-muffin tins.  I sprayed with coconut oil spray I found at Trader Joes

Enjoy xo
