Low Carb Philly Cheesesteaks

I happen to love my calories and carbs, so I’m guilty as charged but I also like to cut them when I can!  Not every meal has to be a fatty one but let me go on record stating that one bad meal won’t make you fat, just like on clean meal won’t make you lean. Ok, that’s my only rant for today! I guess I’m saying ENJOY your food and workout! I wanted to make a low carb version of a Philly Cheese Steak by cutting the carbs and not using bread. I must say they are quite tasty & they are semi-healthy. 🙂

Ingredients
8oz Quality Roast Beef
8 Slices of Provolone
2 Large Green Bell Peppers
1 Medium Sweet Onion (or Vidalia Onion if in Season)
1 Cup of Baby Bella Mushrooms
2 tbsp of Butter
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
3 Cloves of Minced Garlic
Salt & Pepper to Taste

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Take your bell peppers and cut into halves. Remove all the seeds and the ribs of the inside of the pepper. Place your peppers on the pan and spray them with pam (tongue twister haha). Place them into the oven to roast for 10-15 minutes. In the mean time saute over medium heat your butter, olive oil, and minced garlic until butter has melted just for a few minutes. Next, add your onions and mushrooms and saute until the onions are translucent and mushrooms are caramelized for about 10-12 minutes. Pull your peppers from the oven and place a slice or two slices of provolone in the bottom of each pepper. Fill with your cheesesteak mixture until its overflowing and add another slice of provolone on top of each pepper. Place back in the oven until the cheese has melted and DEVOUR!

Pork & Polenta

When I was living in Florida I use to dine at a restaurant called Seasons 52 and I religiously ordered the Pork & Polenta dish because I was ADDICTED to the FLAVORS! Here is my easy, tender, succulent pork & polenta at home recreation for you!

Ingredients
Sundried Tomato & Garlic Polenta (pre-cooked polenta)
1/4 tbsp of milk
1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
Cook on stovetop in a pot whisking until you reach your desired consistency. You may add more liquids if you want it creamier. Then add 1 tbsp of butter and salt & pepper to taste.

Pork
Pork Tenderloin
Create a rub with any spices you choose and put on a plate big enough to lay your tenderloin on to cover all sides with the spice. I used garlic powder, onion powder, salt & Pepper and then covered all sides of the tenderloin. Sear for 2 minutes on each side in a cast iron skillet and finish in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes depending on the temperature (how much pinkness you like) you like your pork. After, removing from the oven allow to sit for 10-15 minutes so the juices can redistribute themselves before slicing.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1 Cup of Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
2 tbsp of Heavy Cream
2 tbsp of Tomato & Basil Feta
Simmer the above ingredients until heated and cheese is melted. Add more cheese or cream if you like a thicker consistency. Then plate your food by placing polenta onto the plate, add pork and drizzle with roasted red pepper sauce.

St. Patricks Day Cookie Pops

Quick & Easy Mint Oreo Cookie Pops! These cookie pops could be created to match any festive holiday ! 🙂

Ingredients

White Chocolate
Green Sugar/Sprinkles

Set up your candy station. Melt your white chocolate. Stick your sucker sticks in each oreo, dip them into the melted chocolate, and sprinkle with your green candy sugar. You can allow to dry on wax paper but I find that allowing them to dry in a colander works best!

Breakfast Stromboli

Good Morning!
Top of the Morning! Whatever your preference is to say…Happy Saturday REGARDLESS! 🙂
Breakfast is a MUST for me or I don’t function correctly and most mornings its oatmeal or something quick, except lately I’ve really been cooking it up for the book!
Anyways, this morning I made a SIMPLE turkey sausage, eggs, cheese, and croissant breakfast by pre-cooking my ingredients and placing them down the center of rolled out croissants. Placing slits on both sides and braiding over to create a breakfast stuffed croissant.
It’s like a BREAKFAST STROMBOLI! Pillsbury to the rescue on those morning you just don’t want to do anything from scratch yet you want something warm in the tummy!

Ingredients

1 Can of Pillsbury Croissants
Pre-Cooked Turkey Sausage
5 Eggs
Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Crack eggs into bowl, add a splash of milk and beat well with a fork. Mix well and scramble in a pan. Roll out your croissants onto a baking sheet pinching the perforated edges so that the ingredients don’t seep out. Place scrambled eggs down the center of the rolled out croissants. Add as much pre-cooked turkey sausage as you like (I added a 1/2 of cup). Sprinkle with cheese. Now, take a knife and cut slits down both side of your rolled out croissant so that you can braid them over the ingredients in the center. Fold the dough over to cover your ingredients to create a stromboli look and brush the top with a egg wash to get that nice golden brown color. Pop into your 350 degree oven for 20 minutes and ENJOY! The warm ingredients with the gooey cheese and buttery flavor of the croissant is HEAVENLY!

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! I hope EVERYONE has a WONDERFUL DAY even the one’s who think its a silly holiday! It’s one more reason to celebrate “US” AMAZING WOMEN! I kicked off my morning with a heart inspired V-Day Breakfast in the spirit of Valentines Day. I cooked turkey bacon, heart shaped sunny side up egg, heart shaped potatoes, grapefruit, orange, and I garnished with parsley for color! I have a heart shaped mold that allowed me to make the sunny side up egg and I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make the heart shaped potatoes! Ta-Da! You now have a V-Day inspired breakfast. 🙂
