Eddie and Robin’s Mediterranean Lamb Stir Fry

lambfry

Hello, I have taken over my mother’s blog temporarily to give you all a new recipe that we thought was quite delicious. She has no idea I’m doing this, so, uh, Merry Christmas? My brother and I made this dish and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Ingredients:

Angel Hair Noodles
1 1/4 lbs of lamb (veal for stew works best)
1 Red Onion
3 Bell Peppers (of various colours for best flavour)lambfrystrip
1 box Cherry Tomatoes
4 oz Goat Cheese
Basil
Thyme
Paprika
Garlic powder
Salt
Pepper
1/2 cup Pomegranate Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/3 cup Spicy Mustard
1/2 cup Teriyaki Sauce


Instructions:

Boil water for noodles first. As soon as the water is done boiling, stick the noodles in and cook until desired noodle texture.
Chop the lamb into chunks (if you didn’t get the prechopped veal for stew). Start cooking this on a high temperature in the oil, vinegar, teriyaki sauce, salt, pepper and garlic. Let this cook for a little while. Chop the red onion into chunks or strips and then put that into the pan. Cover the pan while it is cooking.
Chop the Bell Peppers while the onion softens and then stir them in with the spicy mustard, paprika, thyme and basil. Stir in the goat cheese and cover until it melts into the sauce.
Once the goat cheese is melted put in the cherry tomatoes and stop cooking it.
Serve the stir fry and sauce over the noodles and enjoy!

 

Blogging Mistake #1 Re-Posting

Bloggers aren’t perfect. I’ve seen bloggers re-post other bloggers posts and didn’t think much of it. That’s nice, you can post each others information as long as you give them credit…kind of.

I found a recipe on Facebook that was shared and shared and shared…so many times I almost quit searching for it’s origins until finally I found it. I know, I should’v looked there first. Ha ha.

I posted the recipe on my blog. Used the creators picture. Posted a link to the creators blog. Well, apparently that doesn’t work for recipes. I got a message from a friend telling me there’s a buzz going around the network she’s in about someone at Chicken Wranglers stealing her recipe. Wait a minute, I gave her credit and posted a link to her blog. What’s wrong?

I stole her traffic. I didn’t think that by posting the entire recipe there was no need for viewers to go to her blog. (Except that she had a lot of other great recipes). I removed the recipe, but left the picture with the link to her blog and a comment about the recipe. I also talked to the owner and made things right.

If you are using someone else’s picture, ask permission! If you are using someone else’s information, recipe or entire post, get permission if copy righted or give them credit and a link back to their post if not. Otherwise you’re stealing someone’s hard work and talent.

Dairy Diary – Ghee from a Tree

I had never heard of the word ghee until a couple of months ago. Basically, it’s clarified butter.

Thanks for stopping by.

Okay, so there is a little more to it than that. This is the story of the path from cow to ghee. Or whichever animal you choose to milk. Ghee originally came from India and is made from buffalo milk.  Here in America, we consume mostly cow or goat milk, so cow milk it is.

Trying to answer one question leads to five more questions, all the way back to what is “Raw” milk and what else can you do with it? That lead me to make this beautifully, informative “Dairy Tree”. I wanted to call this a “butter tree” so badly because growing up, that’s what my dad called cows, but that is only a fraction of what this is about. By the way, Raw refers to any food that is unprocessed, uncooked or cooked at a low temp.

Dairy Tree

So, from milk to cream to butter to ghee.

Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake

I love cheesecake and I love making them. I prefer a swirl rather than an entire pumpkin flavor because I love the taste of both flavors. Enjoy!

CWPumpkinCCSlice

Confession time- we ate the first one before we got the finished product picture so we had to make another…darn! 😉

Pumpkin Swirl CheesecakeCWPumpkinCheesecakestrip2

1 Cup Graham Cracker crumbs

2 Tbs Sugar

3 Tbs Butter, melted

3 Packages 8 oz. Cream Cheese

1 Cup Sugar

1 tps Vanilla

3 large Eggs

8 oz. Pumpkin Puree

1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Spices (1 tsp Cinnamon, 1/4 tsp Ginger and 1/4 tsp Nutmeg)

Directions:  Crust – In a small bowl mix Graham Cracker crumbs, sugar and butter. Grease the bottom of a 9″ spring form pan. Press crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan and set aside.

Filling – Mix together cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and vanilla. Mix in eggs one at a time. Separate the filling into two bowls. To one of the bowls add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, pumpkin puree and spices.

To swirl – Pour half of the plain filling over the crust and smooth it out to the sides. Add 2/3 of the pumpkin filling and smooth to the sides. Do the same with the remaining plain filling. With the remaining pumpkin filling, drop spoonfuls evenly over the last layer. Smooth out a little, then use a knife to swirl the two colors. Don’t over do it, the colors will blend.

*Note- I don’t usually care if my personal cheesecake has a crack across the top, but when I make them for someone else, I do. To avoid this, place your full spring form pan onto a baking sheet and add enough water to the baking sheet to almost fill it. This will add moisture when baking and it won’t crack.

Bake at 325* for 55 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Use a knife around the edges to loosen crust. Cool 1 hour more before putting in the refrigerator to chill for several hours or overnight.

Serve chilled.

Flu Shot Alternative

It’s that time of the year when doctors and the news channels are all pushing flu shots. They say this is going to be the worst year ever. Everyone should get a flu shot.

I have never gotten a flu shot, no one in my household has ever gotten a flu shot and I don’t remember anyone ever getting the flu. I personally have had the flu two times that I can remember. Once in my late teens and again in my adulthood but I don’t remember when, it’s been a while.

TeaHoneyGinger

My cold/allergy/flu preventative is my  Super Healthy Tea. Along with some basic healthy living, we are able to build our immune system to stand up against colds, allergies and even the flu. As soon as I start hearing adds for flu shots, I start adding more of this:

Drink plenty of fluids. Water, warm tea, chicken soup and OJ with a little ACV.

Get plenty of rest. 7-8 hours a night is suggested for adults.

A healthy diet. Eating a good variety of mostly raw and real foods with limited processed foods, sugars and very limited fast food if at all.

Exercise. It can be a daily walk, bike ride, tennis…whatever gets us moving and gets our heart rate up a little.

Here are some other natural immune booster remedies I’ve come across:
