15+ freezer meals made! BOOM! Shake, shake, shake the room!!!








I bought this ebook yesterday which inspired me. But today I didn’t feel like searching for the “right” ingredients so I just made them all up! (hopefully they will taste good!) They are all raw. Well except the caramelized onions. Most of them I can just toss into a crock-pot! Whoop! You should all try this!

Creme Brulee French Toast (Dairy Free)

25 Dec

Here is my dairy free version of this fabulous recipe! It has been a great Christmas morning tradition for a few years now. But recently we were told that dairy doesn’t sit so well with my sweet daughter. It turned out so yummy! No one even noticed a difference. (Well besides a hint of coconut). 


Creme Brulee French Toast


* ½ cup coconut oil
* 1 cup packed brown sugar
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 6 French bread slices
* 5 eggs
* 1 ½ cups canned heavy coconut milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 teaspoon brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
* ¼ teaspoon salt


1. Melt coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in brown sugar and honey, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Pour into a 9×13 inch baking dish.
2. Remove crusts from bread, and arrange in the baking dish in a single layer. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla extract, orange brandy, and salt. Pour over the bread. Cover, and chill at least 8 hours, or overnight.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove the dish from the refrigerator, and bring to room temperature.
4. Bake uncovered 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until puffed and lightly browned.

Christmas Fruit Platter

14 Dec

I was assigned a dessert to bring for one of our Christmas parties.  I just really wanted to be able to bring something healthier than the cookies I had in mind.  I threw together these fruits to make it look a little like Christmas. I think it turned out well (for fruit anyway).

Hoisin Chicken and Mango Skewers

24 Oct

Hoisin Chicken and Mango Skewers


boneless skinless chicken breasts
Hoisin Sauce


Cut up the mangoes into large chunks. Set aside. Cut up the chicken breasts into large chunks. Place into a mixing bowl so you can sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir, and sprinkle again. ;o)




Thread skewers into a pattern (mango chicken, mango, chicken…) Place on hot grill. Coat one side with Hoisin.







Turn when one side is cooked and coat again. If you need to, turn again. Coat generously several times during cooking.
