Oven-Roasted Diced Potatoes

I like potatoes and I’ve been wanting a new roasted potato recipe for a while. I tried this recipe tonight and it was so yummy and came together in no time.

Use parchment paper for clean-up that’s easy and quick. With only six ingredients, most of which are likely in your pantry, you’re gonna love this dish.

Italian Beef on Potato Sliders

The first time I tried this recipe, it turned out great! And as a slow cooker meat, just add the ingredients and it cooks itself!

For a twist, make sliced potato “sliders!” Add a couple tablespoons of the meat on top of lengthwise sliced, baked potatoes, and you’ve got a new take on Italian Beefs.

Crock Pot Italian Beef

  • 1 1/2 pound chuck roastIMG_20170417_201035
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

Place the roast and vegetables into the bottom of a crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook for 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. Remove the bay leaf and shred.

Potato Slices

  • 2-3 russet potatoes, depending on the size
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Cut length wise and thin and place onto a cookie sheet.  Add the olive oil, salt, and pepper and coat them well.  Space the slices equal distance apart into the pan and bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes and make sure flip halfway through. Set aside.

Christmas Sides To Satisfy Everyone: 4 Sides In Under 40 Minutes

Holiday entertaining this year? The holidays are chock full of parties, get togethers and various festivities. And the food. The FOOD!

I love party food. Party meals are fun too but can be daunting for a host or hostess. Have no fear! You decide on the main course and dessert, and leave the sides to me! These side dishes are delicious, easy and healthy too.

The first is my mashed potatoes, so good you’d never believe they’re dairy free, gluten free, vegan and paleo. Next is sweet and spicy carrots, followed by bacon and brussels and last but not least, roasted cauliflower.

Emmy’s Mashed Potatoesimg_20161112_172248

  • 3 medium sized bakers potatoes, rinsed off and chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Boil the chopped potatoes for about 15 minutes or until you can start to stick a fork through them but they are still firm. Add in the chopped onion for the last 5 minutes or until everything is tender. Drain off the water and add the potatoes back into the pan with the remaining ingredients. Mash everything together and serve hot.

Sweet And Spicy Carrotscarrots

  • 4 carrots, skinned and chopped into rounds
  • 1 cup 100% orange juice of choice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • pinch of ginger
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of cayenne pepper

In a small sauce pan on medium/high heat, simmer all the ingredients together until the juice evaporates and the carrots are soft, or about 20 minutes

 

Baked Bacon And Brussel Sprouts 

babBaked Bacon And Brussel Sprouts

  • 4 slices bacon, fried
  • 3 cups of brussel sprouts, ends cut off and quartered

Fry bacon on medium heat while flipping throughout, until preferred crispiness. Take bacon out and set aside. Do not drain the grease from the pan!

Cut the ends off of the brussel sprouts and then cut in quarters, or so that all the brussel pieces are about equal size. Add them into the pan you fried the bacon in and coat the brussel sprouts with the grease.

Place brussel sprouts on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven or until they begin to brown. In the last 5 minutes, crumble the bacon on top of the brussel sprouts and mix.

Tip: When you take the bacon out, lay it on a paper towel and dab off the excess grease.

Roasted Cauliflower 

Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, it’s so versatile and can take on different flavors and textures. In this recipe, cauliflower is mixed with garlic and olive oil and becomes almost nutty.

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped or sliced and broken up into pieces20160504_195431
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (to coat)

Preheat oven to about 375 degrees. Combine ingredients together in a bowl. Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for the fastest and easiest clean up!) and spread cauliflower evenly on the baking sheet. Bake until it begins to brown on the outside or to your preferred texture- about 25 minutes.

Regulars in my house, these veggies are some of my favorites. From my kitchen to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
