Candy Fortress

My cousin Jenny who is a really big fan of my blog. Decided to make a cake for her little brothers birthday on October 31st instead of buying one. Look at what she made...Genius... Look at how amazing it came out. She made a simple cake and frosted it. Then with various types of colorful chocolates and candies she made a candy coated fortress with her decor, then to top it all off, she tied it with a ribbon. Simple, yet gorgeous. Do this next time you need a cake for a birthday party. I loved it. Way to go Jenny...

Homemade Garlic Butter


 Garlic butter is amazing to use on toast to eat along with your favorite pasta dishes such as spaghetti, or alfredo, lasagna  or even on toast just by itself for that added flavor. Made in a few easy steps; no need to buy garlic bread at the store make your own at home.

Ingredients
garlic
butter
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1 tsp oregano
pinch salt, pepper, garlic powder


Get a few pieces of garlic pieces and crush it well. Sautee it in a small pot with a dot of butter, for about 30 seconds. Just until lightly browned. Set aside and let it cool.

In a jar get a few big spoons of butter and very lightly season it with salt, pepper and garlic powder, add a few pieces of chopped fresh parsley and oregano. Now add in your already cooled sautéed garlic and mix well with a wooden spoon until all well incorporated.

Sweet Potato Pie



made with orange sweet potatoes
made with white sweet potatoes

Sweet Potatoes can be used in a multitude of ways. They recently came out with the sweet potato fries, which I find amazing. I like making sweet potato mashed potatoes, but there is also Namibian sweet potato frittersstuffed sweet potatoes, yams and so much more that you can do with this delicious vegetable; both sweet and savory.

Here I am teaching you how to make an American traditional dessert. Sweet Potato Pie... Yummy.  At thanksgiving this is the #1 dessert on every Americans table : - )  I enjoy it so much that I don't wait all year. I make it often since its super simple to make and not such a guilty dessert. Tastes great with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top or a squeeze of whipped cream.

Ingredients
2 pie crusts
5 sweet potatoes
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tbsp ground nutmeg

How to make it:
Place your pie crust in the oven on 325F/162C for about 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and set aside while you prepare your filling.

Get a big pot of water boiling, peel your potatoes and put them into the boiling water. Boil sweet potatoes for a long time until they become extremely soft, where a fork pierces it very easily. Drain out your water and mash your sweet potatoes very well. (Some people may like it chunky as a pie. But it tastes much better when it is smooth. So try to mash your potatoes very well to become extremely smooth) Once well mashed, add in your butter, milk, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well with a hand mixer and beat until all well incorporated.

Take this filling and scoop it into the center of your pie crust. Smooth it out with a knife to make the top nice and flat. Bake it in the oven on 325F/162C  for about 25 - 30 minutes. (A great tip for the edges of the pie crust to not get burnt since you pre baked them. Get pieces of aluminum foil and wrap them all around the crust of the pie, before placing it in the oven. This allows the edges not to overcook and get burnt before the rest of the pie cooks.)


Enjoy

Watermelon Shaped Jello (Literally)



Look what a friend sent me. Check out how amazing this is. Super simple to make and it looks like the real thing. How come none has thought about this amazingness until now...kkkkkk.... Absolutely fell in love with this idea. How cool would that be to serve at your next get together. Just use strawberry, cherry or even better watermelon jello.

What I would do is I would probably refrigerate it for about 2 hours or until it is half way done and then get some small blueberries and stick it strategically all around the melon jello to be like the seeds inside of the watermelon. That would look super cute.

Wheat cake



I made a marble cake the other day and I didn't want to feel guilty eating all that flour. In my house between my husband and I, we are total cake lovers. Anytime I make a cake, we eat it all up in less than 24 hours. An entire cake, between the two of us  : - ) Thats sad.

So for that reason I decided to try to make a cake thats a little bit healthier. Here I made a marble cake but instead of using white flour, I used whole wheat flour and it made a big difference. Try it for yourself. Just follow my basic cake recipe and replace the white flour with wheat flour. For more of a guilt free treat.

Oatmeal



Ever had a fresh fruit oatmeal? Its so much better than the store bought one that comes in a box with all types of preservatives. Much healthier and far more tasty. Did you know that oatmeal helps reduce cholesterol, reduces high blood pressure  and is full of antioxidants? Those are a few of the many great qualities of oatmeal.

I put oatmeal in my protein shakes, in making my desserts oatmeal raisin cookies etc. Love all types of fruits in my oatmeal.

Make the oatmeal as directed on the oatmeal jar. By simply putting in about 1 cup milk and 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal in a pot and cooking in on low medium heat for about 6 minutes or until it thickens and oatmeal is soft. Then I add in my sugar and whatever flavors I want.

I've done it before with cinnamon sticks inside the oatmeal and allowing it to cook together with the oatmeal to let off a small cinnamon flavor, done it with sprinkling ground cinnamon on top once the oatmeal is done for a slightly stronger cinnamon taste. I've also done my oatmeal with all sorts of fresh sliced fruits and throwing it inside whilst its cooking. Fruits like fresh cut strawberries, blueberry oatmeal ( Imagine how much antioxidants this bad boy has.... two of foods most high in antioxidants combined) also done it as pictured above where I cooked the oatmeal normally and then shredded an entire apple and threw it inside once cooked...

Super delicious the apples give it a natural sweetness and has a little crunch to it. Another way you can enjoy your oatmeal is by adding a tsp of chopped pecans or walnuts to the oatmeal after being cooked.

As you can see there are many ways to enjoy your oatmeal. If something is healthy for you. Why not find a way to love it. After all its these kinds of things that prolong your healthy living.


Heres a picture of my beautiful mother... Sorry mom but gotta share your age with the world. She is 52 years old and look how phenomenal she looks. Amazing... Everywhere I go people ask her if she's my sister. One of the many reasons she looks this good at her age is because of her healthy eating. If you want to live long and remain beautiful as you grow older. Healthy eating is definitely the way.

                           


Breakfast is hands down. The most important meal of the day. Eat a good breakfast full of nutrition and you can't go wrong. Your entire day will be filled with energy and smarter decisions as this healthy, delicious strong breakfast will also provide fuel to your brain; just as it does to your body to get you up and going better.

Hate Vegetables?



Are you one of those people who really hate vegetables? I mean, you know its meant to be good for you; but you absolutely can't stand them? I know a few people like that... Heres a bright idea. Just boil them, then blend them up really smooth and use it to make a thick sauce. Here I made a simple mashed potatoes with grilled Salmon and a Brussels sprouts sauce.

My husband and I absolutely can't stand Brussel Sprouts. I like vegetables but there are a few choice vegetables that just aren't for me; Brussel Sprouts, Egg Plant, Tomatoes & Green Beans to name a few. But I still get them from time to time because I know that each vegetable has its own benefits to your body.

So instead of suffering through them, I came up with this idea and you can hardly taste it. For my Brussel Sprout sauce, I boiled them until very soft and then I put it all in the blender with a pinch of salt and pepper and just blended it well for a few minutes until smooth. If it gets a bit too thick just add a few spoons of either water or milk.

That simple, your done. This can be done with nearly any vegetable. A bag full of Brussel Sprouts was reduced to simply a few spoons of this puree. Much quicker to eat, and combine with any meal.

The American Burger



As an American, I know that I know that I don't speak for myself when I say that we love our burgers... I love eating Burgers. Even though I don't eat them all the time; whenever I can, I love enjoying a delicious burger.So I made my own: Super yummy, soft burger buns with my very own homemade sauce and melting cheese atop a grilled to perfection turkey burger with crisp lettuce. Served with a side of sweet potato fries. Mmmmm.... I want more. This is a fun Saturday junk food. For those days when you don't feel like going out or feel like eating something junkie but don't have money for it. Or even for those days when you want junk food but hate the guilt that comes along with eating it : - ) This is a less junkie, junk food if such a category were to exist.

Ingredients
Hamburger buns
ground beef burger patties or (healthier option - turkey burger patties)
lettuce
slice cheese
For Sauce: 3 tbsp mayonnaise, 3 tbsp ketchup, pickles

Take your burger buns and bake them in the oven as directed on the package or on 375F (185C) for about 45 minutes to an hour or until your burger is cooked all the way through with no pink and Is well browned on the outside. Take out your burgers and immediately place a slice of cheese on top of the burger.

Get your Burger buns and butter both sides of it. In a frying pan on low medium heat fry the burger bun (Butter side down) for about 2 minutes, just to give that extra crisp taste. Wash your lettuce and pat it dry with a paper towel. ( Do Not put your dripping wet lettuce directly on your sandwich, it will taste horrible and cause your bread to get soggy.)

Lastly get a small bowl and put in your mayonnaise and ketchup. Dice up your pickles really small and add them into your mixture. Mix it all together well until nice and pinkish. Use this as your burger sauce. Assemble the burger whatever way you like best, using all of these ingredients.

Goes great with chips, fries or even as I have here sweet potato fries

Pudding Cake


A moist cake layered up with vanilla and chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream and toffee chocolate pieces. Such a deliciously addicting dessert. Once you start you don't want to stop because its so delicious. No one would ever know that it hardly takes much work to put together. Try it for yourself.

Ingredients
Cake (box cake or this homemade cake recipe)
Chocolate pudding
Vanilla pudding
Whipped cream (store bought or homemade whipped cream recipe)
heath chocolate or toffee chocolate


Make your cake as directed on the box or on the recipe provided above on how to make a homemade cake from scratch, set aside. Now make your vanilla pudding set aside and now your chocolate pudding and set aside. Also make the whipped cream and set aside. The chocolate and vanilla pudding that I normally use for this recipe is the store bought box of jello pudding, the one that you just add milk and mix. Here is an example.



Then take a big bowl where you will be assembling your dessert. Crumble your cake by hand and layer it first in the bowl, then put in your entire layer of chocolate pudding, then put in another layer of crumbled cake, then the layer of vanilla pudding and another layer of crumbled cake, then lastly your layer of whipped cream on top. Now break up your heath chocolate bar and sprinkle it on top of your whipped cream.

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo


My husbands favorite food. Though he doesn't eat it much do to it being not that healthy. But its really delicious. Made this in a huge rush the other day. An Italian pasta dish made chicken and broccoli in a white cheese cream sauce.

Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
2Chicken Breast (pan fried and diced)
2 cups Broccoli (chopped)
1 box Fettuccine pasta
2 cups Heavy cream
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese paste or Cheddar cheese
5 cloves fresh crushed garlic
seasonings (olive oil, salt, pepper)

Clean and season your chicken, then fry it in a frying pan until cooked on both sides and lightly browned. Dice your cooked chicken into bite size chunks. Whilst on the mean time set a pot of water to boil. Once it boils throw in your fettuccine pasta and cook as directed on the box for 'al dente pasta' it is usually abou 10 minutes. But follow you pasta box directions.Once pasta is cooked. Drain the water and rinse the pasta in cold water, to cool. Set aside.

In a separate pot throw in your olive oil and garlic let in cook on medium heat for about 30 seconds, throw in your chicken mix throw in broccoli, season lightly with salt and pepper and let cook for about 4 minutes mixing to not burn. Add in your heavy cream and in cheddar cheese paste and turn fire to low heat and allow to cook for about 15 minutes until sauce slightly thickens. Mix every 4 minutes to not burn. (If your sauce gets too thick just add in a little milk) It needs to be a creamy sauce.

Turn fire off and get your pasta that was set aside and toss well into sauce to evenly get the sauce onto all the pasta. Serve hot. Tastes really good with garlic bread.

'Wing Stop' Chicken wings




Don't know about you but I absolutely love this chicken wing fast food place here in America called 'Wing Stop' it is extremely delicious and you can't get enough of it. I order 12 pieces of chicken wings, eat them all and still want more... Needless to say, I was wasting a lot of money and calories eating at Wing Stop all the time. So I learned how to make them myself. After learning how easy it is to make the same exact wings I paid $20 for. I never went back to Wing Stop again. Mine are super delicious, and as you can see for yourself in the video. Its done in literally 4 minutes. The oven does the rest. No Mess...

Stuffed Bread


I made this homemade bread today for a few friends and it was delicious. I rolled out the dough and filled it with turkey/ham, cream cheese, and spinach. It was honestly really good and disappeared in minutes. The fun part is that you can stuff it with whatever you want.



Try stuffing it with shredded chicken, ground meat, tuna or anything that you like putting on bread and just bake it in the dough. Quick and easy. Definitely a crowd pleaser...

Sad part is I didn't even get a chance to get a snap shot of the completed bread, it was that good...When you cut into it, its nice and soft filled with all these dibble treats

Here is my Homemade Bread dough  recipe and all you need to do is roll it out, stuff it and bake it. That simple. As you can see the dough itself is also very simple to make.

Panquecas


Yes, a video FINALLY!!!! : - ) my blog viewers have been urging me to put up another video of how to cook. Due to my hectic schedule recently I haven't been able to. Until now : - )

Today I'm teaching you to make 'Panquecas' A delicious meat filled thin dough that melts in your mouth. Rolled up into little burrito rolls and when bitten containing a delicious  light layer of your yummy filling inside this light  and fluffy dough.




Quick and simple to make. Watch the video and cook along to get yours just as delicious.

Ingredients                                  Filling:
liquid dough:                              (seasonings of your choice: salt, pepper,garlic salt, lawry's)
1 cup milk                                  turkey minced meat OR (chicken, beef, tuna)
1 cup flour                                  onions, peppers diced
1 egg                                           shredded mozzarella cheese
                                                    1 jar tomato sauce                                      

Add in your milk and eggs first and lastly your flour, and beat all of these ingredients together in a blender for about 30 seconds or until smooth. Turn your stove onto medium heat and place your empty frying pan on there to allow it to get warm. After your pan is warm add in your blended dough 1 ladle at a time (turning your pan to allow the liquid dough to cover the entire pan) allow to cook for about 30 seconds or until bubbles form all around the dough and the edges begin to lightly brown. Flip it over and cook the other side just until just browned. About 15 seconds.

Set aside all of your dough.

Filling:
In a big pot cook your meat on medium-high in a spoon of oil (cover and allow to cook until nice and browned, if it becomes too dry and begins sticking to your pot add in 1/4 cup water and allow to continue cooking) Once your meat id FULLY COOKED and completely browned add in your seasonings a little at a time ( be careful not to over salt) now add in your diced onions and peppers. Cook for another 5 minutes, turn your fire off and add in your jar of tomato sauce. Mix in and set aside.

Preheat your oven to 350F or 175C
Now form your panquecas by placing the meat in the center of your dough and rolling it into a stick-like egg roll shape. Place individually onto a pyrex. water down your tomato sauce to throw on top by adding a bit of water to your empty jar of tomato sauce, cover and shake around to get all the rest of the tomato sauce out of it. Pour this sauce on top of your panquecas in the pyrex, sprinkle some cheese on top and place into your oven for about 5 - 10 minutes or until your cheese begins to brown. Remove, decorate with what you have and serve with your favorite side dishes.

Marshmallow tree



Look how unique, A friend of mine made it for a little party she was having and look how beautiful it looks. Very easy to make and cost efficient. Use something like this in your next party to treat your guests, as a part favor or just simply to enjoy.

Get a little simple box and fill the bottom with a square foam that fits into the box, get a skewer stick ( The same used for kebobs) and stick it into the foam square.Now get another foam piece but circular and stick to the top of the skewer. Get your different colored marshmallows and stick them each with toothpicks, stick your toothpicks individually into the top round foam of your skewer until it is full as pictured above. Lastly take your little bows, ribbons, fluff or anything you choose to use to cover up the skewer stick and the foam square at the bottom.

Thanks Lorena for this creative idea : - )

Simple Omelete

In a rush? Make a simple omelete to eat on bread, wrapped in lettuce or turkey slices or have it for lunch with your rice when you don't feel like making a meat or are in too much of a rush. A good omelete can have almost anything in it at one time. You can add small chunks of vegetables that you enjoy and even a few slivers of meat (turkey deli slices, left over chicken or beef from the fridge, crab meat as pictured below etc)

Throw it all together in seconds, make a yummy omelete and get going.

1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
Coating: 1/2 cup sugar ( optional add 1 tsp cinnamon and mix in together with sugar )

In a large mixing bowl, mix together your butter and both sugars until smooth, then mix in egg now mix in your milk and vanilla extract. Set Aside. 

In a separate mixing bowl combine together your baking soda and flour. Once combined mix into creamed mixture and mix well until nice and smooth. Place dough in freezer for 1 hour to harden a bit.

1 hour later - Preheat your oven to 400F/200C 
Remove your dough from the freezer and lightly roll it out and cut your cookies into the desired shape and place them onto a baking tray.

Lightly press each one down a bit to flatten.)

sprinkle your coating on top of your cookies and bake in the oven for 7 - 9 minutes
(Tip: If you want your cookies to last a few days and still remain soft and chewy don't forget to store them in a tightly sealed container)
