Easy Apple Yogurt Pie / Obuolių pyragas su natūraliu jogurtu

This apple pie looks super easy to throw together and no crust to fuss with! I think that I would use Greek yogurt to add extra protein so I didn’t feel guilty when I ate the whole thing! hahahaha
Seriously, I think that if I woke up tomorrow morning completely healed from ALS I would go from a 5’8″ skeleton to a 5’8″ 600lbs person! lol
Happy baking!

I will admit that apple pies are one of those baked goods that I like to bake the most. Although what not to like about apple pie? Preparation is always super fast, just have apples, flour, eggs, sugar, extra sour cream or yogurt, and voila – a pie is already on the table. Plus, apple pies are always delicious both hot and cold. And if you are lucky and have some remaining ice cream in your freezer, then you can get a fabulous dessert, without much effort and waiting time…

This cake will be loved especially by those who don’t like dry pies, but adore moist and juicy baked goods. You can always use Greek yogurt instead of natural yogurt, or if you want to use sweet yogurt, then add less sugar in a dough.

Enjoy your pie! 😉

Healthy Eating…Cauliflower Rice

I’ve heard about and read a number of blogs where they all insist that cauliflower rice is the best thing BUT until Carol posted this, I was not convinced. Carol, I trust YOU so I pass this on to my followers!
My computer…well, it will come when it comes. Now we are trying a different one so I don’t know what to tell you. It’s just not happening as quickly as I was told.
Happy cooking everyone!

Retired? No one told me!

My recipe tried and tested and it’s  awesome………. Cauliflower Rice.

SAM_6054…….Now does that not look like the real deal?

And all you need is a Cauliflower and an Onion.

A little Coconut oil to cook or other oil of your choice.

Sea Salt and a squeeze Lemon Juice.

Either grate or blitz in a food processor ( but not too fine) you want some texture.

Heat pan and keep pan HOT as you don’t want Cauliflower to steam and go soggy.

Use Tablespoon Coconut Oil and put in the desired amount of Cauliflower and onion mix.

Cook quickly and then season and add lemon juice.

All in all, it only takes a few minutes to cook….. a bit longer if more than one portion but keep pan hot.

If you wish to vary the taste you can add 1 tsp of Cumin seeds to oil before adding Cauliflower if you are eating…

Cheeseburger Soup

This soup sounds like one that my Mom would have loved. Mom LOVED hamburgers! And this soup sounds like a hamburger in a bowl!
In other news, my computer, the new one that is, has been delayed. Which means that the return of me writing posts is delayed…
Sorry!
Happy cooking!

Who doesn’t love a good cheeseburger? It’s about as American as apple pie. Then there’s this soup. It’s warm, creamy, comforting and totally reminiscent of a good cheeseburger. I made this soup for dinner the other night and it was a big hit. Bill didn’t seem overly excited about it until he had a bowl…or two. Needless to say, the whole pot went quickly. I guess he liked it.

What makes this soup so good is the creamy base. It gives the soup it’s heartiness and makes for a very filling dinner. It’s a great soup to make on a cold night. It’s pretty simple to put together and the optional toppings makes it that much more tasty, letting you customize it individually. This was the first time I had made this soup for dinner and it definitely won’t be the last.

Dad’s Meatloaf

I loved me a good meatloaf! What I really like about this recipe is that they use rolled oats instead of bread or breadcrumbs. I was never a fan of ever getting a piece of soggy bread in my mouth. Ewwwwwwwwww!
On my new computer side of things, I have seen the machine twice! Woohoo! The OT’s are working to download the proper programs and then there will be a few weeks of me working with the OT’s to make sure it’s running properly and then I’ll be off and running!
Guys, that means that I will finally be able to make posts again! Though I think that I will continue to reblog posts by my blogging friends.
Happy cooking!

Ultimate comfort food, made safe!

Dad's Meatloaf (small)

Well, it’s here. The middle of winter in the Midwestern. For those of you not familiar with the Midwestern United States, I’ll explain. At this time of year, there are basically two different types of weather: ridiculously cold and snowy, or sort of cold with dreary, drizzly rain. We’ll have beautiful sunny skies but instant frostbite, or steel grey skies with nonstop misty rain that makes it impossible to dial in your windshield wipers and has everyone self-diagnosing as having Seasonal Affective Disorder. I love the first big snowfall of the season, but after that, winter can just go somewhere else. So in this bleak season when the skies are the color of granite and the cold unrelentingly grips your toes, I feel the need for good comfort food. And in my mind, there are few better comfort foods than meatloaf.

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Stew

This recipe looks super yummy and ultra easy! You get all of the flavours of cabbage rolls without all the work. Personally, I would use rice rather than cauliflower rice because I would have enjoyed the carbs but that’s up to you.
I hope you enjoy the recipe! Happy cooking!

Cabbage rolls tend to be a popular dish found in the Balkans, Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe and some places in Western Asia, Iran, and North Africa. Though, when we think of cabbage rolls here in the United States, most often those rolls come from Polish and Jewish Eastern European influences and they tend to be popular in many different communities.

That being said, I had received a large head of green cabbage in my locally grown, organic fruit and veggie delivery the other day. As I took the cabbage out of the box, I instantly remembered a recipe I had come across for cabbage roll stew and right then and there I decided that was what I’d make.

This is a crock pot recipe, which as a busy mom, is perfect. Who doesn’t want one and done when you have little ones at your…

Chicken Meatballs

I think that theses chicken meatballs look really easy and delicious! You could make them with ground turkey (Alison) if you prefer.
If you don’t have any string cheese sticks, you can omit it or use other cheese. Mozzarella would be nice!
Happy cooking!

I’ve had an emotional day. I can’t tell you exactly why, but I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with my hashimotos disease. Sometimes I’m super grumpy and I cry or get angry for no reason at all. For whatever reason cooking makes me feel better. Why shouldn’t I go ahead and make some lunches for the little munchkin? I always like to have food that is processed as little as I possibly can. I really hate to send things that are unhealthy. I have a really hard time not giving him as much healthy food as I can. I guess this stems from my fear that my own health problems might be given to him. We live in a country where most of our residents are insulin resistant and a lot are starting to show signs of having things like hashimoto’s and grave’s disease. This isn’t something that I want for Cooper. I…

Easy Oven Fajitas

I loved Tex-Mex food and this easy sheet pan Fajitas recipe looks super delicious!
On another note, I should have my new computer here and up and running by February. Woohoo! See you soon! xo

All of the taste, none of the cast iron skillet burns!

Easy Oven Fajitas (small)

I’ve said it before (in my world-famous fire-roasted salsa post): I love Mexican food. Specifically Tex-Mex, actually. Tacos, chimichangas, enchiladas… Despite being a born-and-raised Indiana boy, this is some of the best comfort food I can think of. I have noticed that every time we go to a Mexican restaurant, when the server walks through the dining room with the sizzling cast iron skillet of fajitas, every head turns and watches them go by, most saying, “ooooh, that looks good.”

With small kids in the house, a sizzling cast iron skillet isn’t always the wisest choice. So we find another way. These fajitas are simple and made in the oven, but will definitely pass the test.

One of the best things about fajitas is the veggies. Sliced fresh bell peppers (or poblanos, if you are feeling a little extra chile-y)…

Falafel Patties

I loved falafel so I’m making sure that all of you have a recipe. This would be great with my hummus recipe! xo

Cooking Is My Sport

How was everyone’s holiday? You get any good presents? Eat any good food?

I hope the answer to both of those questions is yes. You deserve both.

Here we are at the end of 2017, and I feel like this year just flew by. My cooking and baking schedule for December is almost always hectic as I’m busy putting together recipes and posts for the 12 Days of Christmas series I do every year on the blog. Then all at once the holiday comes, the bustle is over and everything is calm and lax.

A lot of us have a tendency to indulge in a whole lot of sweet and not so lean treats during the holidays that after a while may feel like a sugar overload. I certainly love my carbs and sweets and I’ll never give them up–but after a while I too find myself craving leaner foods…

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I introduce you to Bill, another PALS (people living with ALS) and wish you all a Merry Christmas and only the best for the New Year! God bless! xo

Unshakable Hope

On the last day of 2016, I was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance because, even with my breathing mask on, I couldn’t breathe. The doctors diagnosed me with an Upper Respiratory Infection. I didn’t think I would live to see the first day of 2017. I thought the last hours of 2016 would be the last hours of my life.

Obviously, I didn’t die. By God’s grace I lived to see another year. Every day of 2017 has been like a bonus to me, every day God gives me is a bonus. People with ALS are not supposed to live for 21 years. I hope that God will let me hang around for 2018.

I wasn’t planning on posting again this year, but I was sitting here and thought I’d type a short post to wish my blog followers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Snowflake Sandwich Cookies with Maple Buttercream Filling + 5 Fun Holiday Cookie Links

I’m reblogging this post not because of the cookie recipe, though they do look absolutely delicious but because of the amazing story at the beginning. It is hauntingly beautiful!
On another note, the Occupational Therapists here at the hospital have finally decided which new computer will work best for me AND have ordered me one! Woohoo! Merry Christmas to me! Hopefully I will have the new computer and blogging away in early January! Yay!
In case I don’t post anything else before Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone! I wish you all the best, good health and love of family and friends! xo

cups + spoonfuls

If Tess had known she would think of him as often as she did during her final days she may have made different choices many decades ago.  If she knew he would appear in her dreams, nightly, standing in the sunlight on a pathless mountainside under a blue sky while she struggled, step by step, over rocks and snow to reach him…she may have never said hello.  And yet so many years ago, she initiated a simple conversation without fully releasing she also made a choice to make a space for this strange man in her mind and heart.

Tess entered his life and he her’s, grateful for a providential connection.  She loved this man as she did her husband without ever really, fully knowing him.

[Boundaries remained intact.  Years later when middle age became old age, gray hair to white hair, wrinkles abundant, widowed, and often alone, but seldom unhappy…
