3 ingredient Kale Chips
  • Time: 20 minutes
  • Complexity: easy

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…

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.

Banana Coffee Cake  with a Crumble Topping

  • Complexity: easy

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

Best Paleo Sloppy Joes

At the lake during the summer it's easy to make a dish, get in the boat and head over to a friends house.  I get to have my granddaughter Brooke with me all summer so my dishes need to be kid approves.  

I decided to make sloppy joes then it was easy to wrap and just warm at our friends house.  These were a big hit and fed 5 adults and 6 kids.  There was about 2 tablespoons left in the pan!  

I love veal mixed with my meat as it really lightens up the texture and taste amazing.  You can also use pork or just all meat.  Of course, the kids just knew it was sloppy joes - They all loved it...  

My stomach does not do well with green bell peppers but you can certainly use them in this recipe.  I went for the red and yellow.  This is also a great dish to use your Cast Iron Pan!

Cauliflower Rice Salsa

Cauliflower Rice Salsa

I love that I can get riced cauliflower at Trader Joes in the freezer section. It takes minutes just to warm it up. If you don't have a store that carries it in your area just take a head of cauliflower and rice by sending it through the shredding disk from your food processor. To cook it add butter or coconut oil to a pan and once hot add in the cauliflower and cook for about 7 minutes.

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!

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 :)

Creamy Cauliflower Rice Pudding

We grew up enjoying warm rice pudding for dessert.  My Nana loved keeping it warm on the stove for us and for he too!  It was one of her favorites and my our family still gets excited over warm rice pudding.

I decided to try a Paleo version and was very surprised by the similar texture and flavor.  I use cauliflower in many of my recipes such as risotto, paella, arancini and even pizza crust.

I hope you enjoy this creamy dessert!

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...

Easy falafel Recipe

I have been making so many Greek salads for Brooke and I this summer.  My granddaughter loves salads, vegetables and chicken.  

My future daughter-in-law was over this past weekend with the kids and I knew she would enjoy falalfels with me in a pita pocket filled with a Greek salad then drizzled with EVOO.  YUMMY!

Enjoy xo

Cindy's Tip!  Keep dried seasonings handy.  Fresh herbs are easy to keep all year. Outside during the summer and bring inside and set near a sunny window for fresh herbs in the winter too!
