Stuffed Peppers

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily, My kids want me to make my stuffed peppers tonight so here it is! Take a peek!




Ingredients~

1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 c rice, cooked
1 small onion, chopped
1 egg
1/4 c green bell pepper, chopped fine
1/2 c - 3/4 c Italian flavored bread crumbs, add as desired
1/2c BBQ sauce
1/2 c cheese, cheddar or colby jack
salt
pepper
dash of worcestershire sauce
4 green bell peppers, halved, and cleaned



Sauce~

1/2 c BBQ sauce
1/2c ketcup
1/2c-3/4c brown sugar
8 thin rectangular slices of cheese, big enough to cover the pepper



Directions~

Boil a pot of water. When water begins to boil, add the halved bell peppers. Cook just to soften a bit. About, 5 min. Take them out of the water and let them cool.

In a mixing bowl, add the above listed ingredients and mix well. You may need to add more bbq sauce if mixture is to dry. Spoon the ingredients into each halved pepper and place in a baking dish. Add to the bottom of the baking dish 1/4 c water. Cook the peppers in a 350 degree oven for 35 min.

Remove baking dish from oven and spoon sauce over peppers. Add a slice of cheese on top of each pepper. Spoon a little bit more sauce over the cheese. Place back into the oven and bake for another 5-7 min or until the cheese is melted good. Enjoy!




Thought Of The Day~


Sometimes negative thoughts are just like negative prints. All they require is to be immersed in the right formulation of solution to develop them into beautiful pictures that can imprint positive footprints into the heart and mind of others.
Feel empowered to be positive in all circumstances and situations and see even somebody's negative thoughts as possible and probable solutions to some problems or challenges in life! emoticon

Have a healthy day! I love you all! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

Kale Chips

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily, If you love my spinach chips, you have got to try this on for size! Take a peek!



Ingredients~

kale (about a salad spinner's worth or a grocery produce bag stuffed lightly)
2 tbsp. olive oil
kosher salt

Directions~

Tear the leaves off the thick stems into bite size pieces. Spread out on cookie sheets.
Drizzle with oil. Sprinkle on desired amount of salt.
Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes, until edges are brown and kale is crispy when moved in pan. Enjoy!



Thought Of The Day~


There comes a time when might must make right, the seeds of an evil foe. For when we stand before our maker face to face to be asked, Did you live to make the world a better place?

How about you? I hope that you all have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

Herbed Spinach Chips

Monday, December 22, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily, Are you looking for a healthy chip without all that fat? Well come to my kitchen and let me share my recipe with you! Take a peek!



Ingredients~

2 cups fresh spinach leaves
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Italian seasoning, to taste
salt, to taste



Directions~

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
Put the spinach leaves in a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over leaves and gently toss with your hand to evenly coat the leaves. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and salt and toss.
Arrange the leaves in a single layer not touching each other. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until leaves are crispy. Take from oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes. Use a spatula to remove from foil. Enjoy!



Thought Of The Day~


It is very important for everyone to have smiled at a stranger, to have helped somebody they will never see again, to have done something kind and/ or nice for somebody with no strings attached, and to have loved somebody unconditionally. There will always come a time, sooner or later, when each of us will feel that we have nothing left to give to this world, or that that this world has everything and does not need anything more from us. At that time, only if we have done the above, will we be able to believe that this world is still capable of smiling at us, helping us, being kind and nice to us, and above all, is capable of loving us!
This world is, to you, a mirror of your inner self!

Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

Red Curry And Ginger Pork loin

Sunday, December 21, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily, Do you like pork? how 'bout curry? and what about ginger?? Woo hoo then take a peek at this!



Ingredients~

1/4 c. oil
juice of 1 lime
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar 2 Tbsp. red curry paste
1 tsp. fresh ground ginger
2 lbs. meat. I used pork, but it is great with chicken or beef.

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Place meat in a large zip top bag. Pour marinade over the top. If you have a meat injector, you could also inject some of the marinade into the meat. Let marinate in the fridge for an hour or two.
Heat up your grill over med high to high heat. Oil your grill grate. Remove meat from marinade and place on grill. Let sit for a few minutes, then turn. Continue cooking pork until an instant read thermometer registers between 145 and 160 degrees F. Let meat rest for at least 5 minutes.



Note~ For extra sauce cook the following in a small sauce pan~

Ingredients~

1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. red curry paste
1/3 c. water
juice of 1 lime.
Heat til just boiling, then simmer for 5 mins or so. Enjoy!



Thought Of The Day~


Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dreams. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dreams!

Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Hello Sparkfamily, If you like pizza once in a blue moon, Try my pizza crust on for size! Take a peek!



Ingredients~

2 cups shredded cauliflower
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup mozzarella Veggie Shreds
1 tsp. dry oregano
1/2 tsp. finely minced garlic
1/2 tsp. onion salt



Directions~

Remove leaves from cauliflower and cut head into pieces. In a food processor with a grater blade, process the cauliflower.
Place 2 cups of cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on full power for 5 minutes.
Cool to room temp. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
Grease a cookie sheet or pizza pan. Form pizza crust into desired shape.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and top with desired toppings. Return pizza to oven for a few minutes, or broil to melt additional cheese. Enjoy!



Thought Of The Day~


When you live a life of giving and helping others, you are sowing into the Kingdom, the very Universe. Those seeds will rise up throughout your life and years after you are gone, touching the lives of your legacy; your bloodline will run strong. Your life is your life but you will truly be rewarded when you give pieces of your life away. Help someone today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year. Help someone; when you do, you are truly helping yourself!

Have a healthy day! Hugs, Rose:) emoticon

    I am going to try this cauliflower crust. My dog visited our friend in the hospital. Buddy sat on his lap and during this time his heart in A-fib at 120 bpm for past 5 hours converted to normal sinus rhythm 70 bpm. It was amazing! The nurse even thought bringing the dog helped our friend's heart beat normal again. emoticon
