Quinoa Stuffed Shrooms

Quinoa Stuffed Shrooms

Since I tributed sharing my day to day success as something that keeps me motivated in this week's SMILE, it seemed fitting to share today's lunch.

I had some "use em or lose em" crimini caps in the fridge so I tossed together the following:

2/3 cup cooked quinoa
1/4 cup ancho chili sauce
7 grams peptitas (pumpkin seeds)
2 cups baby kale, wilted
2 1/2 tbsp. shredded parmesan cheese.

Set oven rack 10" from broiler.

Broil the underside of 10 - 12 mushroom caps to release some of the excess water, then stuffed them with the quinoa mixture.

Return to oven ...

Lynn - Red Beans and Rice

Hey Lynn, I have a couple of questions for you regarding the red beans & rice crock pot recipe you shared a couple of weeks ago.

I made some last night, it smelled great this morning!

What suggestions do you have for serving this? It made a lot and I am pretty sure I will be the only eating it. I plan to freeze some of it - does it hold up well in the freezer?

Also, do you have this in the NM data base somewhere that I can access the nutrition information? I can enter it too, I just thought ...

So, Last Chili of Spring. :) I poked around on Tastespotting to find a recipe for cornbread muffins made from cornmeal (i.e., not a box mix) and came across this recipe for Honey Cornbread Muffins. They were so good that I had 3 of them for dinner (I ate chili for lunch).

Tuscan White Beans with Spinach, Shrimp and Feta

Tuscan White Beans with Spinach, Shrimp and FetaI spent a while this morning looking for a recipe I could have sworn I saw on NM for pumpkin bisque with shrimp. There was a bag of frozen shrimp in the house that I wanted to use up. Not finding the pumpkin bisque recipe, I turned to TasteSpotting, where I found this recipe.

Any way to make this Oatmeal Cake healthier for Christmas Dinner?

I like to eat healthy, but unfortunately my family does not. I have my own apartment, so thats not usually an issue, but I'm going to my parents house for Christmas. I offered to make something they like for dessert, so that I could at least health-ify it, lol.
It's my grandmother's mother's recipe, so it's been in the family a long time. I've been making it for years, but I'm sure I could make it healthier and still good.

What substitutions can I make? Splenda instead of the sugar? Pumpkin in place of the butter? Here's the ingredients:

2 tablespoons oil of your choice.
2-3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized chunks

1/2 cup apricot preserves (I use organic sugar free preserves)
1/3 cup water

Combine all of the ingredients in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to low, and simmer until the cranberries are tender and the sauce begins to thicken. It will continue to thicken as it cools. I have also used an immersion blender to make it a little less chunky for family members who like a smoother texture ...

Holiday Cheer & Childhood Diabetes

My boyfriend's little sister was recently diagnosed with childhood type 1 diabetes. She's a pretty typical 11-year old girl; she likes "the littlest pet shop", pink things, playing dress up and arts & crafts. She is the sweetest, funnest kid I've ever spent time with, and I'm really proud of how well she's stepped up to the drastic lifestyle change of managing her diabetes.

Now, this brings me to my conundrum: my "thing" for the past few years has been baking batches of cookies for the families I'm connected with and giving those as gifts. I'd also like to throw a ...

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad

I had a craving for a nice hearty salad, involving beans. I found a million recipes for black bean and corn salad online. I read about 10 of the recipes, and using what I'd learned about the various vinaigrettes, I made black bean and corn salad this morning. I can't wait to eat this for lunch (and possibly every meal after that until it's gone). Thank you Kel for the awesome Rancho Gordo black beans (and the other beans) that you sent me for my birthday!!

Spoon Bread redo

So, I am extremely beholden to Susano for posting that spoon bread recipe a week or so ago. It brought back good memories of spoon bread when I was a kid.

Just make your oats like you normally would, then: mix 1 egg and about 1/2 cup milk per serving of oatmeal, combine the egg mix with the cooked oats, put in a buttered casserole, stir in 1 teaspoon baking powder per serving, and pop in ...
