Trim Healthy Advice (Mama’s, I need it! Help!) 

Standard

Hello everyone! I was so excited about this evening, I was going to make these fabulas pancakes I had been reading about since my friend finally was able to loan me her book (Trim Healthy Mama) and I followed the recipe exactly to a tea! But I had some issues. 

Issue #1

I tried my small iron skillet and the first one stuck to the pan. I pitched it cause it was a total mess. 

The larger iron skillet I have has a lil more non stick to it so I used it so. Once again it stuck and mess number two! 

Third time I tried, I used an actual non-stick pot (cause I dont own a non-stick pan, this one I use for rice and noodles and nothing EVER sticks to it. Or so I thought). Once again sticky #3!! 

  
See? A mess! 

Issue #2

They not only stuck but they wouldnt hold their form. Is this supposed to happen? 

Results 

Even though they didnt stick or look picture perfect, they were the best pancakes I ever put into my mouth! 

 

My hubby’s favorite book line is, “Please sir, may I have some more?” (Oliver Twist). I definitely would love some more but I plum run out of pans! 

Advice?
Yes, Mama’s I need it. How do you do it? How do you keep it in tact? Do I need to invest in a non-stick skillet? What kind would you suggest? Or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,

(Fresh) Homemade Guacamole 

Standard

Hello lovely people! I have had a pretty good week so far. Been working on lots of projects today which has been fun. 

  

Today I wanted to share with you one of my go to “snack” recipes that is very simple to make and so delicious! Plus the fact that it can be as fresh as you want it to be or not. Just whatever is easiest or works best for you. 

  
Ingredients 

2-3 ripe avacodos, pitted and mashed

1 can of rotelle with green chilli peppers or your own mixture of diced tomatoes and fresher chilli peppers

Salt and pepper to taste

Half of a lime

A handful of fresh cilantro leaves and sprigs, chopped

2-4 tsp of minced garlic 

1/2-1 red onion, chopped

  
Directions

Take all ingredients and mix each one together with the avacodos as your base. Though I always put the cilantro, lime and salt and pepper in at the end. So I have plenty of times to taste it to make sure it tastes right. This is really a no brainer recipe and if I left something out that you like in it, go for it, add it in there. Some people like putting cheese in it to for some added protein. 

I love eating it on romaine lettuce leaves with grilled chicken for a nice breadless lunch. 

  
Or for a snack in a bowl for dipping carrots, celery, cucumbers and peppers in or your favorite healthy blue corn chips.

 
Its also great on low carb tortilla shells with grilled fajitas, sautéed onions and goat cheese! Yum! 

Enjoy!

P.S. How do you eat Guacamole? Is there a certain ingredient that you prefer in yours? I would love to hear what it is! 😊
