    Bean and Taco Ring

    I remember when we’d go to those home parties, and they would bake up a crescent ring like this. I added some refried beans to mine, and it’s still a favorite lunch for my family and friends, and especially for my 10-year old grandson. It’s also easy and fun for kids to make.   The first step is to take 2 cans of crescent rolls and lay them out on a baking sheet like this. Then take refried beans, cheese, taco meat and layer them in any order you’d like. No real recipe needed-just use your eyes to know how much you’d like.  I’ve discovered that if you keep the…

    Tex Mex Quesadilla Burger

    I always like doing things the non-traditional way, and this is no exception. Made with a flour tortilla instead of a bun, this burger is so popular among my friends and one of the most requested cook-out burgers. Who knew? I created it when attempting to win the Saucy Mama contest. It just goes to show that, win or lose, it’s always a good thing to try. One of the best burgers came out of this contest entry. Of course, you can always substitute ingredients-instead of making the salsa, you can use prepared salsa. Instead of roasting poblano peppers yourself, buy the canned mild green chiles, and cook the burgers…

    The Avocado Quesadilla

    The Avocado ~  160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fiber, so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food. Avocados do not contain anycholesterol or sodium and are low in saturated fat. A simple and easy lunch when you’re tired of the same thing.  One low carb flour tortilla filled with a sliced avocado, salted. Folded over and grilled in butter with a little shredded cheese on the outside for crunchiness the last time you turn it over. Served with sour cream-slice into 3 wedges and enjoy your entire 8 net carbs! Drink with lots and lots of water-get…

    Pimento Cheese

    Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but pimento cheese is a staple in the South. We all grew up on it-filling soft, white bread (sometimes crustless) with it. This is my own creation for a homemade spread. Use it to fill sandwiches or on celery. I put it on lowcarb wraps. You can also add fresh, minced jalapeno peppers to the mix-you won’t be sorry you did. Print Pimento Cheese Servings 8 Ingredients 1 c medium cheddar or longhorn cheese grated 3/4 c monterey jack cheese grated 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese grated 2/3 c real mayonnaise not salad dressing-i use duke's 4 oz cream cheese room temperature 4 Tbsp diced…

    Individual Pita Pizzas

    I love Joseph’s Pita Bread, and I really love to make individual pizzas with them. It’s so easy, and use what you have on hand. Today I made one with chopped green pepper, pepperoni and cheese with just a hint of tomato sauce with Italian seasoning. Perfectly toasted in the oven at 400 degrees for only about 10 minutes. Be sure and keep an eye on it because it doesn’t take long to cook-the cheese will be bubbly, and when you cut it into little wedges, it will turn a pita into a pizza. No recipe needed.

    Crunchy Walnut Chicken Salad

    This is a concoction of food I had handy, and we needed something to eat for lunch. A pretty simple concept-nothing fancy here. Cooked chicken with some crunchy things thrown in, plus a side of chopped walnuts since the walnut is the only nut – and one of the few plant-based foods – that contains omega-3. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid (meaning we need to obtain it from our diets). Among the many benefits, omega-3 plays an important role in cognitive function and bringing down inflammation in the body. It’s pretty fitting since the walnut is shaped like a little brain.  Served in a Joseph’s Pita Bread half with slices…
