- Being from the south, I love to cook! Not many recipes are super healthy though! One of my faves to share and that my family loves is Crunchy Chicken Casserole.
1 lb of dove breast
1 tub of cream cheese spread
1/2 lb of jalapeño
1 pound of bacon
Finely dice 1 jalapeño
Mix diced jalapeño into cream cheese spread
Butterfly individual dove breasts and lightly fill with cream cheese mix
Wrap each dove breast in bacon
Insert tooth picks
Grill at 350 degrees until bacon is crisp and dove is cooked through (usually about 20-30 minutes)
3 cups plain flour
1 cup milk
3 cups sugar
1 cup Crisco
1 stick butter
1 tsp lemon
1 tsp vanilla (Momma uses Mexican vanilla)
Mix all above ingredients. Grease and flour pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 mins
Pour a glass of milk
2 lbs ground beef
1 packet lipton onion soup mix
¾ cup plain dry bread crumbs
¾ cup water
1/3 cup Ketchup
Mix all ingredients together by hand in large bowl
Shape into loaf for 13×9 in pan
Bake uncovered for 1 hour @ 350 degrees
I like to add some Ketchup on top as well, but depends on your preference!
Buy an Octopus (about 3-4 pounds) and have the fish monger remove the eyes and beak.
Wash the octopus thoroughly and fill a large pot of water. Add salt, peppercorns and a few cloves of garlic to the water (also drop 2 wine corks into the water and let it float which helps tenderize the octopus).
Place the whole octopus in the water (enough water to cover the meat) and bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 45-90 minutes depending on the size.
After time’s up, remove the octopus and start cutting the tentacles off into bite sized pieces. The rest of the body, chop into rings like you would calamari!
Heat a pan with Olive Oil and a half stick of butter.
Toss the octopus meat in salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and a lot of Paprika.
Sautee the meat until it has a little bit of char. The boiling has cooked the octopus fully, so only sautee for about 10-15 minutes on medium high heat!
