Cups of Comfort

I have been experimenting with making different drinks this fall. “Cups of comfort” I have been calling them. I take different beverages (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) and add different creamers or flavors and sometimes come up with something worth offering to the hubskis (Nathan). Here are a couple of my best concoctions..

 

Orange Creamsicle Tea

This one is simple – Orange Herbal tea and enough French Vanilla creamer to make the tea look basically white! Tastes exactly like a warm orange creamsicle!

Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

I LOVE ZUCCHINI! I tried a recipe a while ago for these sausage stuffed zucchini boats and they turned out deliciously!!! You can find the recipe here. I think this is going to be a family favorite 🙂

 

Baked Cheesy Garlic Zucchini

I made this delicious cheesy garlic zucchini very easily in the oven. All you have to do is preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then, take one whole zucchini and cut it into fourths – once in half and then in half again long ways. Rub a little vegetable oil on the tops, then sprinkle on garlic salt and parmesan or mozzarella cheese, or really whatever cheese you prefer. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and then enjoy!

Chicken Rice and Asparagus

Today I made a chicken flavored rice with asparagus and it was DELISH!

Here’s how you make it:

Ingredients (for one serving):
       1 1/2 cups Fat Free Chicken Broth
       1 cup White Rice
       1 Tbs Vegetable Oil
       4 stems of Asparagus
       1/4 tsp Seasoned Salt

Cut the asparagus into one inch sections. On stove top in one skillet, put 1 cup chicken broth and boil. Once boiling, add in the white rice and simmer on low for 5 minutes. While the rice is simmering, put in a separate skillet the vegetable oil, asparagus, and the remaining chicken broth. Cook on medium heat for two minutes. Sprinkle the seasoned salt over the asparagus and cook for two more minutes. Drain the left over chicken broth from the rice and the asparagus. Combine the rice and asparagus and add more seasoned salt, if desired.
This 7 minute recipe is as tasty as it is easy. Try it for yourself and let me know what you think! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on the blog.

Vanilla Apple Flatbread

I just came up with a pretty easy but tasty concoction today for lunch. It is incredibly healthy.

All you need is:

1 apple, thinly sliced
Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1 Whole Grain Sandwich Flatbread

All I did was lightly toast the flatbread to make it a little stiffer. Spread a bit of the vanilla greek yogurt on one side of the flatbread and lay slices of apples on top. The result is delicious!
