Garlic Parm Cream Sauce

Lately it has become harder and harder to come up with dinner ideas in this house. I find myself saying more and more, I’m not cooking!!

So tonight starts out the same way as normal!  “Moooooom, what’s for dinner?” and honestly I have no idea and it’s 4:30pm. I quickly do an inventory of the kitchen and I decide on:

Garlic Parm Cream Sauce over Ravioli with steamed Broccoli

Garlic Parm Cream Sauce

What You Need:

1 package of frozen Ravioli (Prepare according to package)

1 Head of Broccoli (cut florets and steam)

For the sauce:

Garlic – 1 clove

Butter – 3 tbsp

All purpose flour – 3 tsp

Milk – 2  cup

Freshly grated Parmesan – 1/2 cup

Freshly ground black pepper – to taste

Melt 1tbsp butter and sauté garlic until golden brown.

Add remaining butter and Flour, stir and cook for 3 mins until golden brown.

Stir in milk, gradually.  Continue stirring.

Add Parmesan and stir until creamy and fully incorporated, Season with pepper and serve immediately over your Pasta!! (if you let it sit to long it will get thicker, add a bit of milk to thin out)

Ohhh, this is sooo creamy and yummy!! A little goes a long way too!!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!

 

Wishing you many Blessings Rainbow

Herb Roasted New Potatoes

Leann happened to be outside with Grampy and they decided to check out the potato box! To my surprise we actually had potatoes!!!

1013924_10201620184686608_1011404532_nWhen we planted them I wasn’t even sure we would get a crop, we are still waiting on the sweet potatoes that we planted almost a year ago!! I wondered how I would prepare them and finally decided to steam them.

So I scrubbed all the dirt off of them and placed them in my rice cookers steamer tray. Added 3 cups of water and steamed them for about 15 minutes.

I then cut them up to bite size pieces and tossed them with some Safflower Seed Oil and seasoned them. Then I tossed them onto the eclectic skillet to give them a crispy crust!!!

They were sooooo good!!! herb steamed potatoes

I love being able to live of the land!! By the way did I tell you that I don’t live on a farm??? So, YES you can do this too!!!!

Seasoning Mix

  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Thyme
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Oregano

2 Tbsp Safflower Seed Oil

*Coat potatoes with the oil then season them and toss them in the skillet for 5-10 minutes, just to crisp them a bit! Serve and enjoy!!!

A Hot Mess

As I sit here making and tasting this sinfully gooey mess that I am gonna just call “A Hot Mess”, I am helping a friend find a healthy recipe for the kiddos at our church. Funny thing is normally we eat very healthy and tend to stay away from sugary desserts. And with Leddybug being Wheat Free these desserts are far and few in between!!

 So I saw this recipe floating around Facebook and thought I need to try this!!! But then I got discouraged because of the comments. Well I went out and I bought the items needed and then we decided to tear out the kitchen. So the thought of trying a new recipe went right out the door. After a week of having no stove and only having 1 hotplate, a couple of crock pots, a microwave and a electric skillet I decided, let throw caution to the wind and make a dessert tonight!

I followed the recipe to the letter and after 2 hours of cooking on High; I smelt a burning smell. I ran to the counter and realized that the edges were burning but the middle was raw. I didn’t want to throw it all out so I went to cabinet and grabbed my ramekins and scooped some of the batter into them. I microwave them for 45 seconds and they came out as a gooey cakey delight!!

INGREDIENTS
1 box Betty Crocker® fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 eggs
1 pouch Betty Crocker® chocolate chip cookie mix
Vanilla ice cream, as desired

 

Directions:

1. Spray 4 1/2-quart slow cooker with baking spray with flour.

2. In large bowl, mix brownie mix with 1/4 cup of the melted butter and 2 of the eggs.

3. In another large bowl, mix chocolate chip cookie mix, remaining 1/4 cup melted butter and remaining 2 eggs.

4. Drop alternate spoonfuls of the brownie and chocolate chip cookie batters into slow cooker.

5. Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 to 3 hours or until cake is set in center. To serve, spoon cake from slow cooker, and top with scoops of ice cream.

*I melted the whole stick of butter in the microwave and divided it between 2 bowls added 2 eggs to each bowl then put the brownie mix in 1 bowl and the cookie mix in the other bowl. Mixed it well. Then I dropped spoonfuls of each  batter into the crock pot. After 2 hours it was a gooey mess and I then transferred the batter to ramekins and microwave each ramekin for 45 seconds.*
