Remove from pan with spatula...(it should be rather brown on the bottom and crispy.)
I fold it in half like an omelette and if you let it cool just a minute or two you can pick it up with your hands and eat it like a pizza... it is crunchy on the outside and totally has the taste of pepperoni pizza. I had this for lunch today !! YUUMMMMY

**you can also add peppers, mushrooms etc if you want to make it more like a loaded pizza... I just do pepperoni cause it is quick and cheap!!***

I have a few...

Meatballs--Made this last night everyone LOVED them

groundbeef, parmesan cheese (in the can) a little light teriyaki sauce (the thin one in the bottle) fresh garlic, garlic powder, season salt and some french's fried onions chopped up fine. Soooo good.

Take chicken thighs (or breasts) simmer in a pan with mustard (sqeeze mustard over the top of the raw thighs in the pan and let them cook until tender enough to shred) pulse a few tablespoons of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and mix with the shredded breasts. Serve with cheese and tortillas. Soooo good as well.

Not really new but every morning I have a Soy French Vanilla Latte. Take French Vanilla beans ground on the espresso setting, make a few shots. Heat up in the micro soy slender vanilla. Add some french vanilla da vinci's and a TB of Heavy Cream. The heavy cream makes such a difference. Very good.

When dh grills, I slice zuccini and yellow squash length-wise, then sprinkle olive oil and grilling spices all over them. Dh grills them.

Sunday I made grape tomato and mini-mozz. kaobs sprinkled them with olive oil and italian spices, put them into small containers and had some on my way home from the gym.

Stir Fry Soup

Heat a can of chicken broth. Microwave as many stir fry veggies as you want to add to your soup. (I sometimes make myself single servings so I use part of a can of broth). Put your veggies in the broth and use a stick blender to chop and mix a bit. Salt and pepper mixture. If you want a creamy soup you can add some cream or half and half or some shredded cheese. Add a tablespoon of soy sauce if desired.

Remove from pan and enjoy.

We ate at an Amish restaurant once, and they had this peanut butter that was extremely sweet and very, very good. I've been trying to find the recipe for that peanut butter mixture ever since. This reminds me of that - except sugar free which means I can actually eat it!

I won't be making this much...it's too good!

Ok, here is what we did for dinner tonight, a definite keeper!

1 whole chicken, boiled, skinned, and shredded into bite sized pieces
1 frozen bag of okra, zucchini, tomato mix
Partial frozen bag okra (It was leftover from a couple nights ago)

We fried it all up together in butter with salt, pepper, and garlic powder til golden brown and the veggies were no longer slimy. We ate that on top of some Dreamfields Penne Pasta that had been tossed in butter, salt, pepper, and chives. We topped it off with parmesan and red pepper for some spice.

Amish peanutbutter

I believe the peanutbutter has marshmellow cream mixed with it. The one that the Amish make in our area does. My children love it!

Here is my sweet tooth mix: I was trying to figure a way to get in my 3 Tbls of coconut oil one day and mixed 1 TBL coconut oil, 1 TBLS peanut butter and 1 TBL SF Twist. I would heat in the micro for a few seconds so that everything could be mixed smooth together. That used to be my usual dessert after dinner--takes care of sweet and getting in that oil LOL.

I also love my pizza recipe, which is actually taken from CiCi's pizza. If you ask they will cook you a crustless pizza and it's great. I have taken their idea and we love it here at home. I have a deep dish pizza pan from Pampered Chef that I use for easy clean up. Preheat the oven to 350. Put a layer of pepperoni on the bottom, then cover with a thin layer of tomato sauce then whatever toppings you have. I usually use bacon (already cooked), ham, peppers, onions, diced tomatoes and don't forget the cheese..... I then usually cook it for about 15-20 minutes. I cook this when the rest of my family has regular pizza and my DH prefers my crustless version LOL.

My Lazy Cinnamon Breakfast "Roll"

Take LC Tortilla, spread with Cream Cheese, sprinkle on 1 packet of Splenda and dust liberally with Cinnamon. Roll up like a wrap and slice into rolls and eat. I have also taken the same LC Tortilla and spread PB on it with the Splenda and Cinnamon and ate it. A friend of mine doesn't roll her's but folds like a burrito and then pan fries it in some butter until crispy and dusts with a mixture of splenda and cinnamon on top and eats it like an burrito. Sweet and crunchy.

I work at home on Wednesdays, and fix this as a mid-morning snack each week...

I add a tablespoon or so of canned pumpkin to the basic danish recipe, along with some pumkin pie spice. It is a little more like custard, heavier and less eggy, and changes up the flavor.

In my version of the "lazy cinnamon breakfast roll" I add chopped pecans to mine. Once I tried it that way I then added a TBL of SF Twist to mine. It was pure heaven LOL. I ate these quite often when I was pregnant and loved every one.

SF Twist is a chocolate spread which is comparable to Nutella. The SF means sugar free. I don't know if they make it anymore, but I got it at my local health food stores here in Columbia SC a couple of years ago. You might could find it online. I am a great chocoholic and it was great but with the sugar alcohols some have trouble with it.

Peanut butter pudding: put equal amounts of peanut butter and cream cheese (maybe 2 T each) in a heat proof bowl. Add 2 packs (or to taste) Splenda and nuke until the cream cheese starts to melt. Add Davinci's SF marshmallow syrup--maybe a couple of tablespoons, I never measure. Start stirring--it will look funny at first but if the proportions are correct it will end up smooth and fluffy. It's great just like that (this makes a single serving), but if I really want to "gild the lilly" I drop a Hershey's Dark mini SF chocolate bar into the still-warm pudding and eat the pudding as the chocolate melts...

I especially like this (without the chocolate) when I'm dying for something really "dessert-like" but don't want any sugar alcohols...

Ok, this is my Trademark "Kitchen Sink Soup".....

Cause it has EVERYTHING BUT......*LOL*

It began with a bowl of leftover creamed spinach (check the recipe room)....

First, I delved into my fridge veggie drawers....I got a small onion, a medium zucchini, 6 stalks of celery, 1/2 a yellow bell pepper, 3 green onions, 1/2 a carton of sliced mushrooms and 2 big garlic cloves.....I cleaned & chopped them all up.....Then I discovered 1/2 a bag of frozen broccoli florets from my freezer....

I also found some chicken in my freezer....4 boneless, skinless thighs and 1 boneless breast...thawed for a bit, then I chopped them all up and then sauteed/fried them in a big stockpot, with a dash of olive oil and a plop of butter....

After the chicken browns, add all the veggies & let them all stir-fry around in the pot a while til they get a bit soft......

THEN I add the leftover creamed spinach.....then a couple of cups of chicken broth and a little 1/2 & 1/2.....

Let it cook down on simmer for about 30 minutes or so....DON'T let it boil.....

Splash in a little worcesteshire and a bit of Franks Hot Sauce for pizazz....

Taste at this point and decide if you need more flavor zip.....A little basil & dill are wonderful....but customize it to your taste.....Italian, Mexican, French....Just herbs & seasoning to move it to where your preferences are....

It's LC, yummy and hangs out fabulousfully in the fridge for several days.....Or freezes and re-heats beautifully!
