Daniel and I have been wanting to try to make our own falafel ever since we went out to eat at a local falafel restaurant. I finally conquered my fears and made some. It was delicious! And although it did take some time to fry it all up, it was relatively quick to put together. I was so pleased with how it turned out. I copied and pasted this recipe and directions with no changes, from The Shiksa but the photo is mine. She has lots of great ideas for variations and also how to eat it. It was very helpful and detailed. Check it out!

Falafel (Traditional Recipe)

1 pound (about 2 cups) dry chickpeas/garbanzo beans 
1 small onion, roughly chopped 
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 
3-5 cloves garlic (I prefer roasted) 
1 1/2 tbsp flour 
1 3/4 tsp salt
 2 tsp cumin 
1 tsp ground coriander 
1/4 tsp black pepper 
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Pinch of ground cardamom
Vegetable oil for frying (grapeseed, canola, and peanut oil work well)

Pour the chickpeas into a large bowl and cover them by about 3 inches of cold water. Let them soak overnight. They will double in size as they soak – you will have between 4 and 5 cups of beans after soaking.

Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans well. Pour them into your food processor along with the chopped onion, garlic cloves, parsley, flour, salt, cumin, ground coriander, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and cardamom.

Pulse all ingredients together until a rough, coarse meal forms. Scrape the sides of the processor periodically and push the mixture down the sides. Process till the mixture is somewhere between the texture of couscous and a paste. You want the mixture to hold together, and a more paste-like consistency will help with that... but don't overprocess, you don't want it turning into hummus!

Once the mixture reaches the desired consistency, pour it out into a bowl and use a fork to stir; this will make the texture more even throughout. Remove any large chickpea chunks that the processor missed.

 Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

Note: Some people like to add baking soda to the mix to lighten up the texture inside of the falafel balls. I don’t usually add it, since the falafel is generally pretty fluffy on its own. If you would like to add it, dissolve 2 tsp of baking soda in 1 tbsp of water and mix it into the falafel mixture after it has been refrigerated.

Fill a skillet with vegetable oil to a depth of 1 ½ inches. I prefer to use cooking oil with a high smoke point, like grapeseed. Heat the oil slowly over medium heat. Meanwhile, form falafel mixture into round balls or slider-shaped patties using wet hands or a falafel scoop. I usually use about 2 tbsp of mixture per falafel. You can make them smaller or larger depending on your personal preference. The balls will stick together loosely at first, but will bind nicely once they begin to fry.

Note: if the balls won't hold together, place the mixture back in the processor again and continue processing to make it more paste-like. Keep in mind that the balls will be delicate at first; if you can get them into the hot oil, they will bind together and stick. If they still won't hold together, you can try adding 2-3 tbsp of flour to the mixture. If they still won't hold, add 1-2 eggs to the mix. This should fix any issues you are having.

Before frying my first batch of falafel, I like to fry a test one in the center of the pan. If the oil is at the right temperature, it will take 2-3 minutes per side to brown (5-6 minutes total). If it browns faster than that, your oil is too hot and your falafels will not be fully cooked in the center. Cool the oil down slightly and try again. When the oil is at the right temperature, fry the falafels in batches of 5-6 at a time till golden brown on both sides.

Once the falafels are fried, remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon. Set on a paper towel to dry.

These can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. We ate ours in a pita, with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and hummus. Enjoy!

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits (Similar to Red Lobster Biscuits)

YAY! It's soup season! I absolutely love soups. And I love these biscuits. Is there anything better than warm soup and biscuits on a cold night? I think not! These biscuits are yummy, and hit the spot. Every time.

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

2 cups biscuit mix. (Use store bought, or make your own)

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

2/3 cup milk

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

2 tsp. dried oregano

1/4 tsp. garlic salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together biscuit mix, cheese and garlic powder. Add in milk, and stir until well mixed. (Heads up - the dough will get very sticky!)
With a spoon or with your fingers, shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps, and drop onto the baking sheet. (Note that the dough will pretty much hold its shape when baked, so feel free to pat down random peaks in the dough if you'd like them to look more uniform!)
Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until biscuits begin to brown slightly around the edges.
While the biscuits bake, prepare the warm butter mixture by mixing together the melted butter, oregano and garlic salt in a small bowl. As soon as the biscuits are removed from the oven, brush the biscuits (while they are still on the baking sheet) with the mixture until they are well-coated.
Serve warm.


Coconut Lentil Soup

This soup is super yummy, super clean, and super easy. Enjoy! 

Coconut Lentil Soup

2 cups red split lentils
1 onion, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 fresh jalapeno or serrano chili, finely chopped, including seeds
1 tablespoon fresh peeled and minced ginger
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup tomato paste
7 cups water
1 can unsweetened light coconut milk
1 15-ounce can of chickpeas
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
fresh cilantro and lime wedges for serving

 Heat the tablespoon of olive oil in a dutch oven or large soup pan and add the onions, bell pepper and jalapeno and cook for 5-7 minutes until the vegetables have softened and start to take on some color.  Add the garlic, ginger, spices and tomato paste and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes until the mixture is toasty and fragrant.  Add the water, coconut milk, lentils and chickpeas and cook uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes adding the lime juice at the end of cooking.  Taste and adjust with more salt or more lime juice if desired.  Serve the soup topped with a sprinkling of fresh cilantro and some extra limes on the side.

OR (the easiest method) Throw it all in the crockpot! I don't notice a difference in taste, and it is definitely easier.

Ratatouille Saute

Yeah, I know it's been a while. And that clean eating thing? It went really well for about a month until a series of vacations and we kind of slipped back down the slippery slope. HOWEVER, summer is over, so here's hoping we get ourselves back together.

To start us off on the right foot, here is a recipe I absolutely love! I've made it many times and served it over rice, rice noodles, and with fish. It's pretty versatile. Hope you enjoy!

Ratatouille Sauté

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 chopped red onion
or 2 chopped bell peppers (any color works!)
2 teaspoons minced garlic
5 1/2 cups diced peeled eggplant (about 1 pound)
1 or 2 small chopped squash (I use yellow squash or zucchini)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained ( I have also used 2 or 3 fresh tomatoes)
1/4 c. Balsamic Vinegar

Heat oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and bell peppers; sauté for 3 minutes. Add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the eggplant, squash, salt, black pepper, and vinegar. Sauté 3-5 mins until squash is cooked. Add tomatoes; stir to combine. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.

Clean Eating

So...Daniel and I have completely revamped the way we eat since I last posted. It started out as an experiment to see what might be causing Daniel's tummy trouble, but we really like it, and are planning on making it a lifetime commitment. Let me explain what got us excited about it....For a long time I have been concerned with the way we eat. I felt like it was fairly healthy (especially compared with the average American diet), and I tried to follow the word of wisdom, but I still felt like our diet was not quite right. Wondering what to do, and how to break the cycle, and concerned about Daniel's GI episodes, I started to do some research.

I found a diet I was interested in starting called "The Virgin Diet." It was basically an experiment to take certain foods out of your diet completely, and then add them back in again slowly, taking special note of what happened to your body. Those foods are Dairy, Soy, Corn, Eggs, Sugar (or subs), Peanuts, and Gluten.  We actually started doing that and did really great for 2 weeks, and then "summer" hit and we realized we were going to have to change our plans. Daniel has a conference this weekend that will feed him several times, and with the current American diet vs. the Virgin diet, we doubted Daniel would be able to eat anything at all. Because gluten, soy, and corn are in almost EVERYTHING! Not to mention scout camps (2) and weekend vacations. So the testing is put on hold until the fall when trips/vacations end and real life starts again.  However, that doesn't mean we are going back to the way things were. We now feel very strongly about this whole thing, and do not plan to go back.

During this time of research, I was talking to a friend about changing the way we eat and in particular about Daniel's episodes, he mentioned this documentary. Well, this is a trailer for it, but we watched the whole thing. You can find it at your library or if you have Amazon Prime or Netflix you can watch it there too.

Although we are sure there are hidden agendas with them (as well as with any other movie or organization), we feel that it really can't hurt to eat this way. I mean, who is going to die from eating more vegetables and fruits? No one. There are many instances in this documentary and I have also heard from others who have switched to whole foods, raw, paleo, green smoothie, etc. diets, of amazing turn arounds in health. AMAZING. My thoughts? Well, I'm not expecting amazing experiences or stories from changing the way I eat, like those people, but I am only hoping it makes me more healthy than I have ever been in the past. NOW is the time to change. NOW while I am still young, and can easily change my habits.

So we've been eating "clean" (no processed foods, grass-fed beef and free-range chicken, and LOTS of vegetables and fruits) for a couple weeks now. We have already seen amazing results. We have both lost 5 lbs (or more...we weigh in on Mondays), I am fitting into my clothes better, and we have experienced WAY less cravings. (Although the first weeks was amazingly rough as far as cravings go.)  As far as non-measurable things go, we both feel that we have more energy (again, except that first week), I have been able to run when I never had been able to before, and we both feel great!

So, I would encourage all of you to re-think the way you eat, and be willing to make some changes for your health. 'Cause seriously, who's not gonna benefit from eating more veggies?

Crunch Wraps

Taco Bell has always been one of Daniel's favorite restaurants. It's always on his list of suggestions if we are eating out, but don't want to spend too much money. One of the things he loves (and I do too actually) is their crunch wraps. We thought it might be easy to recreate our own...So that's just what we did. It's super easy, and super visual, so I'll give you the recipe in photos.

Start with an extra large flour tortilla warmed for about 10 secs in the microwave, add meat/beans and cheese.

Add fried corn tortilla and sour cream.

Add lettuce and tomatoes.

Fold. Start at one end making small (tight) folds until it closes.

It should look like this.

You could use a sandwich press if you have one, but we don't so we lightly toasted it on a pan. Press down to make sure the ends stay folded.
And the other side.

Take a photo to show all your friends.

Add salsa if you like and Enjoy! PS. You don't have to cut it. :)

Beans and Rice

We love beans and rice at our house! It's easy, it's cheap, and it's yummy.  I've had lots of requests for my beans and rice recipe. Unfortunately, I don't know exact measurements, but this is probably a pretty good estimation.
Beans and Rice

1 green pepper
1 onion
2 c. beans (either homemade or from a can. 2 cups is about one can)
1 or 2 tsp. chicken bouillon
1 Tbs soy sauce
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1 Tbs. lemon or lime juice
1 1/2 c. rice, cooked
Cilantro, to taste (about 1/2 bunch)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 dashes hot sauce (optional)

Cook pepper and onion until onion is translucent, add beans (with liquid. If there is not much, add a little water) and next 5 ingredients. Cook for 3 minutes add rice, stir. Add cilantro, stir. Serve with sour cream and salsa. Enjoy!

Homemade Hummus

I never really liked hummus until I made it homemade! It was perfect because I could mess with it until I liked it. I guess we like a little more garlic and spice than a lot of people, because I feel like the stuff at the store is so bland, this stuff will knock your socks off! Just experiment a little and find out what you like. 

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed (Or make your own! You'll need about 2 cups cooked beans)

2 cloves of garlic (more or less, depending on your tolerance for garlic. We like more!)
¼ C olive oil (or less; experiment to see what your prefer)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
Cummin, to taste
Chili powder, to taste

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Store in the refrigerator
in an airtight container. Serve with pita chips or fresh vegetables or use as a spread on wraps or

Lemon Bars

Finally! I have succeeded at making lemon bars. I have done a lot of baking in my short time on this earth, but I have never been successful and making lemon bars. I am so excited that I succeeded, that I have to share the recipe I used. Straight from 

The Best Lemon Bars
recipe image
Rated: rating
Submitted By: Patty Schenck
Photo By: mominml
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Ready In: 55 Minutes
Servings: 36
"These tart, rich lemon bars need just seven common ingredients you probably already have, and are done in 55 minutes!"
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 lemons, juiced
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, blend together softened butter, 2 cups flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.
3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and golden. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk in the eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust.
4. Bake for an additional 20 minutes in the preheated oven. The bars will firm up as they cool. For a festive tray, make another pan using limes instead of lemons and adding a drop of green food coloring to give a very pale green. After both pans have cooled, cut into uniform 2 inch squares and arrange in a checker board fashion.

Lentil Tacos

So honestly, I'm a little embarrassed about sharing how much our family LOVES this recipe. Everyone I tell about it is like, "what? Lentils? You're not serious are you?" And then they try it and ask for the recipe and repeatedly tell me how much they like it. So. I thought it was time to share it here. I usually make a double batch, and we enjoy leftovers for a while. I've used the lentils as filling for empanadas, taco salad, and other things you'd use taco meat for. Enjoy!
Lentil Tacos
from Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly
Serves 6 (ideal slow-cooker size: 4-quart)

¾ C onions, finely chopped
⅛ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. canola oil
½ lb. dry lentils, picked clean of stones and floaters
1 Tbsp. chili powder
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 C fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1 C salsa

Sprinkle garlic powder over onions and saute in oil in skillet until tender. Add lentils and
spices. Cook and stir for 1 minute.Place lentil mixture and broth in slow cooker. Cover. Cook on low 3 hours for somewhat-crunchy lentils, or on low 6 hours for soft lentils. Serve with fried corn tortillas, sour cream, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, avocados, or whatever your little heart desires!

Note: A serving size is about ¼ C. If the mixture seems a little thick, add a bit more salsa.

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

This is a new favorite!

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

1 1/2 c. 2% milk
1 c. sugar
2 egg yolks
1 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon

About 1 1/2-2 c. chopped high-quality sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, or shortbread cookies
Combine milk and sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium until bubbles form around the edges. Remove from heat.
In a small mixing bowl (or really big cereal bowl), whisk egg yolks thoroughly. Very slowly, add 1/2 of the hot milk mixture, whisking the yolks constantly. Return pan with remaining milk mixture to stove top and then whisk the egg and milk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking constantly. You need to be careful here to not get the eggs too hot too fast, or else they’ll curdle. So just relax and take it slow.
Add whipping cream. Over medium-low heat and stirring constantly, continue heating the custard mixture to 160 degrees. It will start to thicken quickly; remove from heat when your finger leaves a track on a spoon coated in the custard mixture.
Whisk in cinnamon and vanilla. Place the custard in an airtight container and chill in the refrigerator several hours.
When ready to make ice cream, pour chilled mixture into ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When the ice cream is almost done (like maybe the machine’s struggling a little…it looks like really firm soft-serve…), add chopped cookies.
Remove from ice cream freezer and place in another air-tight container and freeze a couple of hours at least to firm up. Scoop and enjoy!
