HOW TO MAKE CREAMED CORN SO DELICIOUS

White Creamed Corn with bacon bits












I love white creamed corn topped with bacon! BACON SEEMS TO BE ADDED IN MOST OF MY MEALS.
It seems that for me,bacon make everything tastes so good.  I no that bacon is not healthy, but I broke the rule today because it's not everyday that I eat bacon.  I came a long ways because in the past, I included bacon   in the majority of my veggies, but I have cut that down to at least once a week, then it will keep going down to once every twelve days and so on, but to be honest, I don't thing I will ever stop eating bacon completely. 


Recipe

one frozen package of white cream corn,1 tablespoon of margarine,  and bacon bits, cook it together and serve warm.
That's it  with a hit.
I told you it was easy, and I forget to mention it is good too! Now, you have a good side dish to try with the family.

HOWTO PREPARE FRESH OUT THE GARDEN FRIED OKRA

Fried okra and bacon!













 It's okra season, the season I've been faithfully waiting on. So I  am  sharing this my way of making it  because it's to die for  This is an easy recipe I enjoy making for my family and my self. I am serving it as a side dish today because i love the combination of okra and bacon, yummy! If you love okra, and bacon, you'll love this dish too!!.  Vegetables is something I purposely serve at every meal, and I usually like to  exclude bacon but it is so darn good most of the time  i cant resist it.   

Directions

I cut up about two pounds of fresh okra from the field because it wilts a lot, but rinse it before cutting it up into small slices. Next I start the bacon slices in the oven at 350 degrees, and cook until it golden as you see in the picture. Take the bacon out the oven, then pour olive oil instead of the bacon oil. into a frying pan along with the chipped bacon. When the oil is hot, throw in the squash and stir constantly to prevent sticking and keep stirring until the okra is  very tender and a little crunch, then all I do is serve with a scoop of rice or it can be eating alone. That's it!  I told you it would be delicious.

THIS WAS A SIMPLE YET DELICIOUS CRACKER SANDWICH I TRIED WITH VEGETABLE ENTERTAINMENT CRACKERS I PURCHASED FROM THE DOLLAR GENERAL STORE.  THIS COULD BE A NICE SNACK OR FINGER FOOD FOR A PARTY OR GATHERING ALONG WITH SOME FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIES. IT'S EASY TO MAKE AND THE TASTE OF THE VEGETABLE CRAKERS SEEMS TO MAKE A GOOD COMBINATION WITH THE SMOKED TURKEY AND SWISS CHEESE.

Banana recipe you"ll hate or love

THIS IS A GOOD HEALTHY AND TASTY SNACK TO TRY FOR YOURSELF AS WELL AS YOUR CHILDREN.  I HAD A COUPLE OF  BANANAS LEFT AND I WANTED TO TRY IT TOGETHER WITH SOMETHING THAT I ALREADY HAD IN MY PANTRY, SO I SAW THE BOX OF GRANOLA AND THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE A GOOD COMBINATION. I CRUNCHED UP ONE PACKAGE OF GRANOLA BARS AND ROLLED THE BANANA IN THE CRUNCH AND CUT IT INTO PIECES. I DID LIKE IT A LOT, AND ENDED UP EATING LIKE A CRAZY WOMAN.  MY SON IS AUTISTIC, SO I COULDN'T GET HIM TO TRY IT BECAUSE HIS APPITITE IS LIMITED, BUT BLESS HIS HEART,  I ALWAYS MAKE EVERYTHING I COOK AVAILABLE TO HIM.

SLOW COOKER LIMA BEANS


LIMA BEANS AND NECK BONES



Not bragging, but these lima beans were just as tasty as they look!  I cook beans a lot I guess because that's what a lot of country folks cooked where I grew up at and from what I understand, they are a great source of fiber and also gives energy and sticks to the stomach as my mother put it.  From my understanding, beans are good for the heart as well as fiber and energy.  These beans will go great with a piece of homemade southern style corn bread!

HEALTHY GRILLED CABBAGE RECIPE

GRILLED CABBAGE

















My baby sister told me about how she saw someone cooked cabbage on the grill, so Sunday gone, I tried it out, and boy I tell you something, I had no regrets with this one. Besides it being easy to prepare, it was tasty and healthy at the same time!  All I did was washed it with water,,cut up the cabbage into chunks, laid the bacon at the bottom of the heavy duty foil paper, laid the cabbage on top and seasoned it with my favorite season, closed the foil up and let it cook on the grill for about 45 minutes or so. Cabbage makes it's own water, so no need for water, and no need for stirring over the stove. Thanks sis!

After cooking the cabbage, I threw some center cut pork chops on the grill for a total of about 12 minutes.

A easy recipe for Blueberry lovers

BLUE BERRIES AND WHIP CREAM!



Blueberries and whip cream is what I ate after completing my weekly diet. As you can see, I piled on the berries! Any kind of berries will go well with whip cream, and the good part about this recipe is that it only requires three items, a glass or bowl, berries and the cream. Just looking at this picture makes me want to go out a buy these items , but no matter how bad I want this, I must wait for it, so try it sometimes, you may fall in love with it just like I did.

How to make oven fried fish



If you want a quick, easy, and delicious meal to try, I recommend the fried catfish with bread or warm grits!

For dieter, add a little salt to the fish and eating one piece of fish might now off set your diet too much. This is a picture of my husbands plate.




To prepare the fried catfish
First and far most, rinse the meat off and pat it
  1. lightly season the fish with season salt pepper and your choice of meal, I use Louisiana fish fry meal
  2. to deep fry, put lots of grease in a deep skillet and fry hard
  3. fry fish until golden, pat the oil out of it with a clean and dry dish rag and let it get warm enough to eat.
  4.  serve with warm cooked grits.
  5. That was a quick and delicious meal with very little healthy ingredients, but I had my favorite chopped cucumbers and vinegar along with a banana to complete my meal.

GRILLED TERIYAKI AND SALMON RECIPE

Crushed pecan teriyaki and salmon dish for salmon lovers!
Check out this salmon crushed pecan teriyaki recipe.
















I WANTED TO TRY OUT THIS RECIPE BECAUSE IT LOOKED
SOMETHING I MIGHT LOVE TO EAT.

THIS COULD BE A WONDERFUL MEAL TO SERVE WHEN COMPANY'S COMING AND YOU DONT HAVE A LOT F TIME TO PREPARE.  COMPLEMENTS FROM THE TAST OF HOME RECIPE BOOK. I ADDED THE TERIYAKI SAUCE TO GIVE IT THE TAST I WAS DESIRING..

PREP: 15 MIN, + STANDING
BAKE: 10 MIN.
4 salmon fillets (around 6 ounces each)
2 cups milk
1 cup chopped pecans
1?2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cu packed brown sugar ( I used 1/2 cup)
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
2 teaspoons canola oil
1l place salmon fillets in a large reseal able plastic bag, add milk. Seal bag and turn to coat. let stand for 10 minutes/ drain.
2. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the pecans flour brown sugar, seasoned salt and pepper.  Coat fillets with pecan mixture, gently pressing into the fish.
3. In a large skillet, brown salmon over medium-high heat in oil. Transfer to a baking pan coated with cooking spray.  Bake at 400degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until the fish is flakey; yield 4 servings.
This recipe didn't deliver the tasted I had hoped for, not to say it won't deliver the taste for your taste buds! So what I did was poured some teriyaki sauce over the salmon after cooking it. The sauce delivered the taste that I was looking for, not to sweet but just right for my likings.

How to make a Healthy Hamburger Sandwich

 
THE JUICIEST AND HEALTHY BURGER EVER!
 
 
Most people love burgers especially if they're good! 
Since I started this weight loss diet, I've been weaning  away from all the white bread as requested by my doctor, It's hard to let go of old habits, but It's at the point of choosing what's most important for our health or satisfying our cravings and end up sick. The good thing about making your own burgers is you get to choose what goes in them and on them. I made this burger the same way I did before eating healthy except I changed a few things instead of using bread crumbs, I used 1/4 cups of Quaker real oat meal, and I used seasoning salt  instead of regular table salt, instead of using white bread or white buns, I used the flat whole grain round bread, and just with those few changes, my burger was healthier and still juicy and delicious.  I used to eat two burgers, but I only eat one and fill up with veggies and fruits.
 
ingredients
 
1 pound of ground beef
 
season salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup oat meal
sprinkle of accent flavor
1/2 cup chopped onions
whole wheat flat round bread


note:  grilled and baked foods are always recommended instead of frying.
