Lime, Garlic and Cilantro Rice

Standard

If you like lime then you will really like this rice dish. I got this rice dish from the Pioneer Woman.

For the ingredients;

Rice

Oil or Butter

Garlic

3 Limes

Chicken Broth

Cilantro

 

Now I always use butter this is the first time I used oil. And it worked just fine. So I put some oil in the skillet with some minced garlic. You can also put in an onion at this point.

 

 

Then I stirred in 3 cups of rice and let it got lite golden brown.

 

 

Pour in 6 cups of chicken broth. The zest and juice of 2 limes. Sorry I did not have pictures of the limes.

 

 

Bring it to a boil. Then put a lid on it turn it to low and let it simmer for 20 min.

 

 

While the rice is cooking I chop the cilantro.

 

 

After it’s done I juice 1 more lime and put it in with the cilantro mix it all together and it taste delish.

We had this with Enchiladas I will be blogging that one next.

Have a great weekend!

Check out this cool thing. It’s a Mini Measure-All Cup. It comes in 1 cup and 2 cups. This time I got the 1 cup. If it is like the picture that is where you would put the dry ingredients. Turn it over and that is where you would measure the wet ingredients.

Blackberry Cobbler

Standard

I got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond. My family loves it!

Ingredients:

1/2 stick of butter. Now I have used 1 stick and it works great. Then I use that same stick to butter the pan you are going to bake it in. Then melt what is left.

1 1/4 cups of sugar

1 cup of self-rising flour

1 cup of whole milk

2 cups of fresh ( or frozen ) blackberries

Whip cream and/or ice cream for serving

Here is my touch I add 2 or 3 handfuls of white chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 1 hour

 

 

This is all the ingredients:

Here we go 🙂

 

 

This is what I bake the cobbler in. The lid is for after it has cooled down and so it well stay fresh.

 

 

I washed the blackberries and put them on a paper towel to dry them. Now I’m sure this is just 1 cup not 2 cups. But the price of blackberries right now is just to high and this amount works for us.

 

 

I just put another paper towel on top to dry them.

 

 

1 cup of self-rising flour.

 

 

1 cup of sugar added to the 1 cup of self-rising flour.

 

 

Whisk the self-rising flour and sugar together.

 

 

Add 1 cup of milk to the self-rising flour and sugar.

 

 

Whisk them all together.

 

 

Butter the baking dish you are going to use.

 

 

Then put the remaining butter in a microwave safe dish so you can melt the butter to put in the batter.

 

 

Add the melted butter the self-rising flour, sugar and milk.

 

 

Pour the batter in the baking dish.

 

 

Now to add the goodies 🙂

 

 

At this point I add some delicious white chocolate chips.

 

 

and some delicious blackberries.

 

Then I put the 1/4 cup of sugar all over the top.

 

 

Now it’s ready to put in the oven at 350 for 1 hour.

 

 

1 hour later it will look like this and taste wonderful with some ice cream and/or whip cream on it or even with out the ice cream and whip cream it still taste wonderful 🙂

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog I hope you liked it. Have an awesome week 🙂

Some new things for my Kitchen

Standard

Now here is my flat Whisk! I have wanted one since I seen the Pioneer Woman using it.  I’m so sorry not a good picture. I have a better picture coming 🙂 It was $11.95.

I had received an email from Sur La Table they are having a clearance sale and I had to go get some goodies! So I had heard that you are supposed to keep olive oil in a dark place. So I found this beautiful olive oil holder. I was going to get the white one but it was not on sale. The man at the counter said the white and red ones never go on sale 😦 By the way it looks yellow but it is green 🙂 It was $11.99.

Then I bought this beautiful blue baking dish or a dish to serve with. It is 12 x 8. It is dishwasher safe, Microwave safe and oven safe. It is made of stone. And it is very beautiful 🙂

See how beautiful it is? I also love how deep it is. Now maybe when I bake like Mac n Cheese it will not over flow in my oven.  It was $12.99.

Here is the last thing I got. It’s a baking dish 14 x 8.5. It is green it matches the olive oil holder. Again I love that it is deep. Now this one is a little more fragile. You can’t just put hot or cold stuff in it. But  I lived it any ways. It was $14.96.

Just another look from above it see how deep it is 🙂

Here is a better looking picture of the whisk. It seems like it would be much easier to keep clean.

Now you can see the color better on the olive oil holder 🙂

And this is the bag it all come in. It was a fun day my husband came to get me for lunch and we went to Sur La Table.

I hope you enjoyed my blog. Have a great week.

New toys for my Kitchen

Standard

Ok so I am a huge Pioneer Woman Fan 🙂 She cooks the way my family likes. And she is always cooking in the Cast Iron Skillet. So I had to get me one a 12″. Now I did have a 8″ I had gotten from my Mom’s place. Down at the mail boxes if someone does not want something they just leave it there for anyone to take that can use it.  I that is when I got my first Cast Iron Skillet. The only thing was that it was a little small for my family of 5. So when I was at Wal-Mart one day I seen this Cast Iron Skillet and had to get it.

While I was there I was looking for some Salt and Pepper dishes with lids. I’m still looking for some. But for now I found these very small mason jars that I am using right now.

Just a picture of how it looks with them on the counter. Oh yes and after we drank all the water bottles. I found something else to put there. I like it much better 🙂

I also got a new Coffee Pot. The white one is the old. Every time we would pour the coffee in to our cup it would spill. It would also smell so bad because when you would pour yourself a cup of coffee it would drip on the burner. And I could not get it clean. But this black one is so awesome. It will turn off if on to long after it’s done brewing. No Coffee has dripped on the Burner and I love it.

I love it! It’s up to date more modern 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my little changes I made. And my little toys I got!

Pork Chops with Garlic and Wine

Standard

The makings of the meal: ( I got this receipe from the Pioneer Woman )

Pork Chops ( I get the pork chops from Costco. They are with out bone and thick so I cut them in half for more to serve )

Olive Oil & Butter

Peeled Garlic Cloves

Red Wine

Balsamic Vinegar

Beef Broth

Bay Leaves

Salt & Pepper

Salt and Pepper both sides of the Pork Chops. Then sear them in a heavy skillet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter over high heat. You don’t need to cook them all the way through at this stage; The goal is to get as much color on both sides as possible.

Remove the Pork Chops to a plate and set them aside for a bit.

Reduce the heat to medium-high and throw in the peeled garlic cloves. Stir the garlic around and cook it for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until the garlic starts getting nice and golden brown and begins to soften. Then pour in a good amount of Red Wine.

Throw in a Bay Leaf, then let it bubble up and become nice and violent.

Let it reduce for several minutes. You want the garlic to continue to cook and soften a bit.

Then throw in pork chops and some beef broth! Arrange them in the skillet so that they’re swimming in the sauce a bit. Just let them set in there and continue to cook. The juices from the pork will become a part of the sauce and the flavor. Drizzle in a tablespoon or so of balsamic. Then let the chops simmer for another couple of minutes.

When the sauce is starting to reduce and thicken. Take the pork chops out of the skillet.

Let the sauce continue to bubble. Reducing the sauce is the key! Work the garlic around and make sure it’s soft enough to easily cut with a knife. Fell free to splash in a little more beef broth if the sauce needs a tiny bit more liquid.

At the very end, throw in a tablespoon of butter.

Add a small amount of salt and pepper. Stir to make an awesome sauce.

Arrange the pork chops on a plater or what ever you have. Then pour the whole skillet of sauce over the pork chops, garlic and all. You can also sprinkle the top with a little chopped parsley or sliced green onions if you think it needs a little green.  It is so awesome! My family loves it 🙂  You can serve it with mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, white rice, and of course some awesome garlic bread.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Have an awesome Easter weekend!

Mac n Cheese

Standard

I have always made Mac n Cheese out of a box. Then one day I was checking out the Pioneer Woman on you tube. And I watched her make Mac n Cheese it looked so easy. So I thought I would try it. Now again I always made it from the box and you do not bake that one. So I made it with out baking it this time. And it was yummy 🙂

While you are cooking the pasta you can start the sauce about the last 5 min the pasta is cooking. To make the sauce add

2 tbsp of butter. Melt it in a sauce pan then add

2 tsp of flour. Add to the butter whisk it around then add

about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of milk then add

salt and pepper. Let it get hot! In a small bowl crack an egg in it. After the milk is hot add some of the milk slowly to the egg and whisk it so the egg will not scramble. then slowly pour the egg in to the milk sauce. Then add

Cheese. As much as you like and as many as you like. I did Mild Cheddar and Monterey Jack Cheese.

After it is melted then add the pasta and stir 🙂

If you would like to bake it you would bake it at 350 for about 15 to 20 min. What I like to do is put half in the baking pan and then put more cheese on it then add the rest of the Mac n Cheese then cover it with more cheese!

Along with the Mac n Cheese we had fresh green beans. I covered them with water and put a lid on it. Cooked it at med. high heat. after the water had reduced I take the lid off to let the rest evaporate. Then I add salt, pepper and garlic butter that I make.

Then we had Tri-Tip and that garlic bread that I make. It was so yummy!

I hope you enjoyed my blog thank you for reading it.

Mason Jars

Standard

I was checking out the Pioneer Woman’s ( Ree Drummond ) Website. And she had a blog about Mason jars. She was saying you can put left overs in them, Drink out of them, Save your Bacon grease in them, you can also make a soap dispenser out of them. Now that I’m going to do. I will show it when its done 🙂

Now this bag just takes up to much space in my cupboard. I was so excited to get me some Mason Jars to put things like this in them. Look how the jar would take up less space. Plus you can stack them on top of each other.

Yes I like it so much better! I have some canisters that are not that big. So when I put like sugar and flour in them it might not fit all of the sugar and flour so I put the rest in a mason jar. I also have like coffee, sunflower seeds, sometimes I put pasta in them.

Here are my Canisters. Tony and I went to an estate sale with our awesome friends the Woodrums. And Belen bought the four big ones in the back for me. Then one day I was at Ross and found the 2 little ones on sale so I bought them 🙂

Here is some more mason jars filled with my goodies 🙂 I always get a big bag of rice and I would keep it in a cupboard in the garage. Then one day when I was at Wal-Mart checking out the Mason Jars I saw it. That huge glass canister I loved it. My rice fit in it and the rest in 1 Large mason jar. And I think it looks so beautiful out there!

Thank you so much

Hope you enjoy
