"Yaki" Beef Stir Fry

I received a shipment of samples from Bone Suckin' and decided to use the Yaki first for a stir fry.  We were over the top happy with this Yaki "Teriyaki" and I am serious. This is the best we have ever had and it's gluten free.  

I did make 1 chicken breast for me as I am not a big steak fan!  Enjoy xo

 

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!  

 

Baked Beef Kibbeh

Baked Beef Kibbeh

I know - I know - I am Italian.  However, we have Labanese friends and they would bring over pita bread, grape leaves and kibbeh.  So good!  I remember how my Nana's friend could take a large pieces of pita and rip it in 1/2 the long way so each person got one half of a large pita and made us an amazing sandwich.  Sometimes I wish i was that little girl in at my Nana's house!

I love lamb and that is the traditional way to make kibbeh but not everyone enjoys it so I decided to make it with beef and will put out a large platter to serve the kibbeh by adding grape leaves, hummus, tabouleh,  lettuce, cucumbers, feta cheese, olives and extra-virgin olive oil.

Enjoy

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.

 

Basic Marinara
  • Time: 1-2 hours
  • Complexity: easy

Basic Marinara

I normally double or triple this recipe and freeze them in individual containers. I try to make it basic then depending on the recipe I can add more flavors such as wines or chicken broth. When making a marinara/sauce remember that dried herbs hold their flavor and color when slow cooking. If you are using fresh herbs don’t add them in until you are finished with the cooking process and just before serving. If you have fresh tomatoes then use them starting with 3 pounds.

**Cindy’s Tip!: Use with your favorite recipe or divide and store in your refrigerator or freezer. **

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking

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.

Chicken Parmesan

My family loves when I let them know we are having Chicken Parmesan for dinner! It's funny because many times when we go out to dinner my husband will order Chicken Parmesan then say, "that is not as good as your".  I always ask him why he orders it when we both know he won't like it!  

I love my chicken very thin for cutlets and therefore for parmesan.  I hope you love my chicken parmesan.  It's so easy to make your own tomato sauce - here is my recipe!
