A little healthy twist

I'm gonna try to be a little more healthy, all my foods have been pretty fattening, so I'm gonna try to be a little more nitricious this time. This week I had leftover mango and pineapple juice, so I decided to make a really simple smoothie. All you need is a spoonful of cream of coconut to add some sweetness and special flavor with a tropical flare. You could even use frozen pineapple juice ice cubes instead for more of a slush drink. You'll need about 8 pineapple ice cubes, some mango slices and some sugar or honey to sweeten it up a bit. Once you've got all that, just bled it up for a couple seconds, but not too long or the ice will melt and it'll become too watery. And once all that's done, pour yourself a nice glass and enjoy!  

Simple Sandwich

I'm always hungry at school and never have anything to eat because it takes so long to make something that'll be good by the time it's lunch time! So if you're in the same boat as me, I may have something for you! So this morning I decided to conquer this hunger that I face daily & make myself something. It was quick, and took very little food. All you'll need is two slices of bread, mayo, or butter whichever you prefer, your selection of cheese and your selection of Ham or turkey. Now, just toast the bread, to where you like it. Apply your choice of spread onto it, and then put on your choice of cheese and meat, and put it in the iron press to melt the cheese & compact the sandwich. Now that that's all done, you should have a really good looking easy sandwich ready for you for later!!! I hope everyone enjoys their sandwich as much as I do!

Caesar salad!

So proms coming up soon so everyone is trying to eat healthy to look good and fit into their dresses! So here is something just as yummy as it is healthy! How about a Chicken Caesar Salad? All you need is, 1 teaspoon canola oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, Freshly ground pepper, to taste, 8 cups washed, dried and torn romaine lettuce, 1 cup fat-free croutons, 1/2 cup Caesar Salad Dressing, 1/2 cup Parmesan curls, and Lemon wedges.

It’s also as easy as it is healthy and yummy! So all you need to do is prepare a grill or preheat broiler, then rub the chicken with oil and season it with salt and/or pepper. Then you can either grill or broil the chicken until its ready and browned and has no trace of pink in the center, let it cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Then just combine the lettuce and croutons in a large bowl, toss in with Caesar Salad Dressing and put it in a bowl and cut up some chicken into 1/2-inch slices and sprinkle it over the salad finally, top with Parmesan curls. once its all ready, serve it immediately, with lemon wedges for extra yummy flavor! Enjoy and look great at Prom!

French Onion

A soup that'll normally cost someone like $15 at a nice restaurant will only cost you around $5. All you need is, 1/2 cup unsalted butter, 4 onions, sliced, 2 garlic cloves, chopped, 2 bay leaves, 2 fresh thyme sprigs, salt and freshly ground black pepper, 1 cup red wine, about 1/2 bottle, 3 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour, 2 quarts beef broth, 1 baguette, sliced, 1/2 pound grated Gruyere, to enjoy a homemade French Onion Soup. 

You start off by melting a stick of butter in a large pot over medium heat, then you add the onions, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt and pepper and cook until the onions are very soft and caramelized, so for about 25 minutes. Add the wine, and bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer until the wine has evaporated and the onions are dry, for about 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and thyme sprigs for now. Turn the heat down to medium low so the flour doesn't burn, and cook for 10 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Now add the beef broth, bring the soup back to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
 now you’ll add the bread. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle the slices with the Gruyere and broil until bubbly and golden brown, so for 3 to 5 minutes.
 now the soups are about ready to eat, but be careful though! It’s going to be really hot! Enjoy! Bon Apettitte!
