Gourmet Egg Scramble | Munchies

12 10 2011

Ha ok let’s be honest, gourmet might be a little fancy for this one but it sounds good, right?  So I’m not an omelet person, never have been and likely never will be.  Something about a giant slab of eggs with pieces or meat and veggies flaoting around like a jell-o mold or a fruit cake…gross.  Although I guess my egg scramble isn’t a far cry from an omelet but whatev.

I’m pleased to present my newest cooking creation.

Gourmet Egg Scramble

And as with most of my munchie recipes there is no true science but I’ll give you the break down.

Ingredients:

* 2 Eggs or 3 Wgg Whites (whichever you prefer)

* A Handful of Spinach

* Bacon Bits (Don’t have time to cook bacon? Me either! Bacon bits are SO much easier and just as yummy)

* Goat Cheese

* Extra Virgin Oil Olive

Step one:  Heat about two table spoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on medium heat. Add spinach and saute until the leaves have wilted.

Step two: Crack in the eggs and stir.

Step three: Once the eggs have cooked up a bit add the bacon bits and goat cheese to taste.

Step four: Devour 🙂

It’s super easy.  The whole process takes about 7-10 minutes.

Let me know what you think or if you have any other tasty ingredients to add!

Enjoy!

Mint Milkshake | Munchies

7 03 2011

It’s the return of mason jar milkshakes!

This time Mint Oreo…nom nom nom.

You will need:

*Ice Cream *Milk *Mint Oreos

Side note:  I have always considered myself a Blue Bell girl but in an attempt to be frugal I went with Great Value and let me just say, YUM!  Twice as delicious and half the price? Yes please!

Cookies!  I heart sweets and anything mint 🙂

The mason jar is ready and waiting!

Dominated.

That was D-lish!  Worth every calorie 🙂

I’ve decided I’m going to create a new mason jar milkshake each month.   Let me know if  you have any tasty ideas and I’ll give them a shot.





Torchy’s Tacos | Munchies

17 02 2011

Torchy’s Tacos speaks for itself.  Delicious! Any location, any time.  If you live in Austin and you haven’t eaten at Torchy’s, shame on you.  You’re missin out.

My staple, the Green Chile Pork Taco.

Slow roasted pork carnitas simmered with green chiles and topped with queso fresco, cilantro, onions(- the onions on mine) and a wedge of lime.  Served with tasty tomatillo sauce.

Coming in at a VERY close second, the Fried Avocado Taco.

Hand-battered fresh avocados fried and served with vegetarian refried beans, topped with pico, lettuce and cheese.  Served with poblano sauce.

Their tag line is SO right.  Their tacos are always…





Bruschetta | Munchies

2 02 2011

Mmmm homemade bruschetta.   Please note, I have no true recipe…I just kind of throw things together so flavor to taste 🙂

You will need:

Tomatoes

Fresh Chopped Basil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil(EVOO)

Salt & Pepper

Garlic Salt

Crostnins

Mozzarella Cheese(Shredded or Shaved)

To get things going you’ll need to wash and dice the tomatoes.  Then add the tomatoes to a bowl with EVOO, S & P and basil.  Stir and flavor to taste(I like a lot of EVOO).  Then cover and place the mixture in the fridge to chill.  While the tomatoes are marinating, it’s time to take care of the crostinis.

Preheat the broiler to whatever setting you are most comfortable using.  Place the crostinis on a baking sheet and lightly brush each with EVOO.  Then sprinkle with garlic salt and a little shredded mozzarella.  Place the baking sheet on the top rack and wait ummm a couple of minutes?  I don’t know exactly how long, I just watch them.  Once the edges turn brown and the cheese is bubbling they are ready to go.  Remove the crostinis and place them on a plate to cool.  When the crostinis are back to room temperature you can bust out the tomatoes!!

Simply spoon the tomato mixture on top of the crostinis, drizzle with a little EVOO, top with mozzarella and voilà!  You’re now a World Class Chef!  Ok, maybe not World Class but you definitely feel fancy, huh?

Mmm…home cookin | Munchies

8 11 2010

On my most recent trip home, my Mom and I decided to make some homemade pasta sauce.  And by my Mom and I, I mean she made the sauce while I documented everything.

With all the ingredients laid out it was time to get to work!

First, we chopped up a couple of onions.

Then we minced a little garlic.  Love me some fresh garlic!  It totally kills your breath but man it tastes SO good!!

Side note: As an appetizer, heat up a loaf of French bread.  While that’s in the oven, put a little(I prefer a lot) of the fresh minced garlic with some EVOO, red pepper flakes and ground black pepper.  When the bread is ready, tear and dip it in the mixture.  D-lish!

We put the onions in a huge pot with a little EVOO(extra virgin olive oil) and set the heat to medium.  Then we added the garlic, a little sugar, oregano and pepper.

Then we let the onions cook until golden brown.

After that, we add some balsamic vinegar, a couple cups of chicken broth and 3 cans of crushed tomatoes.

Then we let the deliciousness cook for 55 minutes.  Meanwhile…

It was time to prep for ah spicy meat-a-ball!

First we chopped up a green bell pepper and one small onion.  Then we put that into a blender topped it off with a little fresh garlic and blended until it was a nice consistency.

We added the mixture to a pound of ground turkey, tossed in a few bread crumbs, an egg and a little S&P.

We formed the meat into small balls and placed them on a cooking sheet.  They cooked for about 25 minutes at I don’t remember what temperature. :/

Finally the sauce and meatballs were ready. Mmmmm…

The end result of all that hard work…Delizioso!  Eccellente!

Let me know if you’d like the recipe.  It’s delicious and totally worth the effort!

Do you have any special recipes you’d like to share?  Please say yes because I like to cook and I LOOOOVE to eat! 🙂
