Loco Moco

So I made loco moco for dinner last night it was so easy and fast to make. And my babe loved it.

First I made white rice, while that was cooking I got the ground beef and seasoned it with garlic, salt, pepper, BBQ sauce, and a little coke. Mixed well and formed hamburger patties. When forming you patties make the outside a little thicker than the inside cause when you cook them the center tends to get bigger. You can cook the patties on stove or grill. I grilled mine. While they were on the grill I made brown gravy (today I used the one you just add water. I added garlic to it as well for taste) and I fried up the eggs. Went out and grabbed the patties. Plated up rice on the plate, placed the pattie on top then the eggs. And topped it off with the gravy!

No Bake Corn Chip & Peanut Butter Toffee

Yet an other Gluten Free Goody! and super easy to make and eat :D  what you need:
1 package (9.75 to 10.5 ounces) Fritos corn chips
1 cup Karo light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter

Spread Fritos on a greased 15x10 baking pan (i used wax paper not a good idea at all!) In a saucepan over medium heat, bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil, stirring frequently to help dissolve the sugar boil for approx. 1 minute. turn heat to low stir in peanut butter until smooth. Pour over Fritos. it's really sticky so be careful but it is really good! taste almost like a payday candy bar.

Crock-Pot chocolate candy

I wanted to find a candy that i can make in the crock pot and i came across one from Trisha Yearwood's cook book (i love country music and her music at that. so i had to try it) and this too is Gluten Free! here is what you need:  

2 lbs (36 oz) salted dry-roasted peanuts
4 oz (4 squares) German's sweet chocolate
1 12-oz package semisweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)
2½ lbs white almond bark

I had my daughter do all of step 1 and then she lined the cupcake tray we did the small ones not regular size liners and were able to make 101 (she counted them all) i also used 1lb almond bark and 1lb white chocolate chips.

1. Put the peanuts in the bottom of a 4-quart slow-cooker. Layer the chocolate over the peanuts, beginning with the sweet chocolate, followed by the chocolate chips, and then the almond bark. Set the temperature on low and cook for 3 hours. Do not stir the mixture. 
2. After 3 hours, stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth. Drop the candy into cupcake pan liners, using about 2 tablespoons per liner. Allow the candy to cool completely before removing the cupcake liners. Makes 30 to 40 pieces.

Old Fashion Potato Candy

So one of my friends that i met in Hawaii posted something about potato candy something i have never heard of. so i decided to find out what it was. I found a recipe and decided to make it. The best part is that Potato candy is Gluten Free :D I found how to make it on The Merry Gourmet

here is what you need and how to make it: 

1 cup mashed potatoes, room temperature or cold
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 pounds confectioners sugar
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter, divided

Okay so in a large mixing bowl, stir together mashed potatoes, butter, and vanilla. Add confectioners sugar, one pound at a time, and stir together well. Once the dough is thoroughly mixed, divide it into two halves. On a sheet of wax paper, and using your hands, flatten out the dough into rectangle, roughly 12-14 inches long. (my daughter loved doing this part!) Spread 1/4 cup of peanut butter onto one half of the dough (i think it needed more peanut butter my self after i tasted it but the little one said she liked it as is). Carefully roll into a log and wrap well in wax paper. Repeat with other half of dough. Chill the logs for at least 2 hours before slicing. Once chilled, slice into 1/4-inch pieces and serve.
Make ahead: Store prepared potato candy, layered between sheets of wax paper, in the refrigerator in a covered container for up to 2 weeks.
Here is what mine came out to looking like:

Chocolate Covered Potato Chips

Made Chocolate covered potato chips today! The sweet and salty is so good. and super easy. all you need is Ruffles and a bag of  Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips, use a double boiler to melt the chocolate dip chips in half way let cool completely then enjoy or store in a air tight container. My 6 year old helped with these she love them! 
Totally Gluten Free!!!

Gluten Free

So I can't seem to keep food down. it's been about 5-6 months so i finally went to the doctor to see what's going on. and i sit in the waiting room for 1.5 hours then finally go back and sit for another 15 mins. dr. comes in and says well are you pregnant? "NO"  well then he just looks at me so i starting telling him everything i'm feeling won't go into detail here but this last about 5 mins he gets up and says okay pee in the cup and we will do blood work. and i will see you back in 7-10 days. and walks out really? are you serious? just walkout and not say anything? oh well i do what he says and i was supposed to go in today for the results and what i get call this morning while at work to tell me my appointment has been canceled and i can come in on fri.

i have been cutting out gluten out of my diet and able to keep food down and not feel gross so i am thinking that may have something to do with it. if that is the case i will be making this a gluten free blog with foods that i can eat and my girls will like as well. and that will fit into our busy lives. so look for more to come. Have a wonderful week everyone!! Smile cause you can! remember it could be worse. right?
