Black Bean Salsa

Who doesn't love snacking?  I know we do and we do it often!  There is just something about eating with hands. Hand reaches to chip, to salsa and dip, to veggies (a least one son's hand does) to hungry mouths that await anxiously.  Snack, snack, smack!  Yes, that was my boys! They tend to get a little overzealous with chips and snacks and anything they can make a loud, mouthy sound with.  I love my boys..but let's keep it quiet, okay?  This lip smacking Black Bean Salsa was just another noise in the bowl app, awaiting my hungry boys.  I adapted the recipe from a can of Bush's Best Black Beans!

Mexican Corn ..You know, like in the can

Mexican Corn.  Do you remember your precious Mama making it out of the can for you?  Well, I do!  I always loved it.  Now, I love this a lot more.  Simple and so flavorful!

Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

I needed to make something healthier for us after the holidays.  Although I am still going to make a cake or pudding or muffins or, or, or...  Well, something anyway.   Hopefully this will make up for whatever it is I am about to throw together.  Hubby and I love cabbage and kielbasa in the colder months.  It's a comfort food.  Add the sweet peppers, garlic and onion and yes, I am feeling a lot of comfort going on.  I went heavy on the garlic because I'm not feeling great...feel free to cut back.  Enjoy!

Crock Pot Cabbage and Kielbasa

16 oz turkey kielbasa, sliced 1/2 to 3/4"
1 head cabbage, chopped
4 to 6  medium to large carrots, sliced 1/2 to 3/4" 
10 small sweet colored peppers, cut in quarters  
or 1 large colored pepper, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
5 to 10 cloves garlic or 1 to 2 Tablespoons minced
4 cups chicken broth
28 oz can diced tomatoes, mine was flavored with basil, garlic and oregano
(V8 juice is also great in this recipe!)
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, or to taste

Prep veggies and kielbasa.  In 6 quart crock pot add chicken broth and tomatoes.  Season with salt and pepper..  Add garlic, peppers, onion, carrots and sausage.  Stir.  Add cabbage, stirring so it will fit.  Cover and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours, depending how you like your veggies.  This can also be cooked on low for 8 hours. Add more salt and pepper, if needed.  Serve with Big Ole Yeast Rolls or One Hour French Bread and you have a great comfort meal!

Stained Glass Frittata

I made this for hubby and I the other day for brunch.  Looking around in the fridge I found some veggies that I needed to use, I started to use the leftover chicken from the night before but decided I would just use veggies instead.  After posting pictures of this on facebook, a friend on my page, Susan J. Vosmik, suggested I name it Stained Glass Frittata.  It does look like stained glass with all the beautiful colors.  ~smiles~  Really easy to make and very delicious!  Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!

Stained Glass Frittata
Makes 2 large servings if nothing else is served.
4 to 6 smaller slices  

6 eggs, beaten
splash, heavy cream
1 teaspoon margarine 
2 each red, yellow and orange mini peppers, torn into pieces or chopped
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
3-4 handfuls of fresh spinach, torn into pieces...I leave the stems on
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon freshly ground garlic and sea salt
pepper to taste
cheddar and parmesan cheese freshly grated, to sprinkle on top of frittata
olive oil spray

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray olive oil in a 6" ovenproof pan.  I used cast iron.

Saute mushrooms, onions and peppers until softened.
Season with dried thyme leaves, garlic/sea salt and pepper while cooking.
Add margarine, stirring to be certain nothing is sticking to bottom of pan.


                             
A little steamy and blurry but you get the picture.  HAHAHA sorry about that!
Add spinach.

Cook until wilted.

Beat eggs and add a splash of heavy cream. 
Add to pan and stir around..you don't want all the spinach on one side.  ~smile~

Cook in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes,  or until eggs are set at 350 degrees.  Turn pan around halfway through.

Sprinkle cheeses over frittata when it comes out of the oven.

Enjoy!  <3 and hugs!
