I really didn't intend to write another post today. My plan was to just write the one that I posted earlier and then do a lot of prep cooking for the week. Well, I did both, but some of these recipes turned out so well that I just had to share! So this will be quick, but with lots of tasties for you to try!
First, I made yogurt. This time though, I used a slow cooker! I am so lazy that I hate to stand there and stir while it heats up. It takes a long time. It takes even longer in the slow cooker, but at least I can ignore it for a couple of hours. It is still in the sitting around at 100 degrees stage, but here I am... writing!!
Next, I tried my hand at bagels. Not your traditional New York style ones, but a clean and low carb version. I had trouble getting them out of the pan, but the taste was good. The texture was more like a cake donut, but that's okay too... as long as you know to expect it.
I also made a big batch of coconut chicken fingers. I can take these for lunch, throw them into a salad, whatever. And they are good warm or cold! They really only take about 30 minutes to make start to finish.
I had made cauliflower rice the other day and there was a fair amount left. I didn't want it to go to waste so I used it to make hot pockets! I used asiago cheese in the crust because I had some to use up and mozzarella and pepperoni on the insides.
I also made a big pot of chili for #1 Son and MR. But the piece-de-resistance was.... drum roll please.... Skillet chocolate chip cookies!
I don't have a big iron skillet anymore so I used personal size pizza pans and made two! The directions say you don't have to use an iron skillet but I like baking in these. I subbed coconut sugar for the sweetener so it has a little more carbs, but these are really amazing! I hope you'll try them!
