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...

Green Vegetable Quiche with Emeril's Flaky Crust

I love our farmers market here in Palm Beach Gardens.  Every Sunday I take the 2 mile ride and pick up all of my fresh vegetables, fruits and a jug of Kombucha.

I normally make a crustless quiche but since we had company and my husband loves a flaky crust I found this one from Emeril and it was DELICIOUS!

Enjoy..

Nana’s Italian Pork Roast – Sunday Dinner

Nana’s Italian Pork Roast – Sunday Dinner

My Nana loved Sunday dinners with the family. This was one of our favorites. We would get up early and start the sauce before church. Then when we got home the roast went into the sauce for the day. The tenderness of this roast is just amazing As a family that loved peas my grandmother added them right on the platter next to the roast covered in sauce. I am so grateful to have these amazing memories! Italian recipes are the best especially bringing families around the table.

My nana always made this dish on the stove top but I have found the slow cooker works great and I don’t need to worry about the stove being on all day! I will share my slow cooker recipe with you but if you want to make this on the stove – just keep in on low all day!

 

Pasta, Sausage and Peas

Pasta, Sausage and Peas

I love my one-pot recipes and even though I needed a pan to boil the pasta there was no need for a colander nor a platter or bowl to serve the dish.  My beautiful pan served as a perfect serving dish! All of my dried herbs are from Simply Organic!

I used 2 hot and 2 sweet chicken sausage which added amazing flavor to the sauce!  You can also just add the frozen peas into the hot sauce!  This is a 30 minute meal perfect for a family of 4.  

When we enjoy pasta from a box there is only one I will serve my family (and myself). It has to be DeCecco Pasta!  

Tip: You can add in onion, peppers, zucchini or any other vegetables you have handy in the refrigerator.  Go ahead clean out that crisper draw and make this a hearty family meal!

If you love this recipe but don't want to use pasta!  Take a spaghetti squash and poke about 10 holes using a long metal skewer.  Put in the microwave for 10 minutes.  Let cool, slice, remove seeds then take a fork and add strands into the sauce.  Paleo dinner served...

This was a "just because" new recipe!  I love ricotta and we don't indulge often but since we are entertaining tonight it seemed right!  Not to mention it's amazing!

 

Roasted Carrots and Butternut Squash
  • Time: 1 hour

Roasted Carrots and Butternut Squash

This recipe was inspired by a beautiful bunch of carrots from the farmers market and a lovely butternut squash on my counter.  I decided to slice them into sticks and they were the perfect side to our grilled steak dinner.

 

 

**How to cut and peel a butternut squash:  Start by grabbing a sharp knife and sharp vegetable peeler.  First remove the ends by using a shark knife and placing the squash on a work board on the side.

Place the squash on its side and use the vegetable peeler by making long strokes along the squash.

 

To easily work with the squash, cut it in half.  I like to cut where the neck of the squash ends.

 

Cut the body (bigger end) in half and use a spoon the scrape out the seeds.

 

Now you can easily cut into strips, chop or use other ways to follow this recipe.
