Pimento Portobellos with Cabbage Noodles

I love going out to eat, devouring something fabulous and then...recreating it at home!  Yes - I'm a Food Nerd! 

Went out to eat with some super, amazing gals at Nonnah's!  We ordered an appetizer that was portobellos filled with creamy feta and roasted red peppers.  

Let the recreating begin...

I start out by scooping out the inside of two organic portobello mushrooms.  Put them in a pan and roast at 425 for about 10-ish minutes.  You just want them to soften.  While that goodness is happening, whip up a batch of pimento cheese

(Shredded cheese of choice, a giant dollop of cream cheese, mayo, pimentos and S & P)

When your mushrooms are soft, scoop some of that yummy, creamy pimento cheese inside.  Bake until the cheese begins to bubbly and ooze.  

While that is happening, fry you up some good 'ole fatty bacon!  (I have to cook a whole pack, because when my family gets a whiff- they all come in for a piece.)  

Save your bacon grease.  

Out come your mushrooms from the oven.  Crumble some bacon on top.  

Pour off some of your bacon grease and leave a little in your pan.  Grab that leftover shredded cabbage from your Egg Roll in a Bowl dish and throw it in.  Sauté with a little salt until wilted.  

Plate up and enjoy, my friend! 

(I used sharp white cheddar for this batch of pimento cheese.  Alternately, you can add a little feta to your pimento cheese before filling your mushrooms for some double oozy, gooey, cheesiness)

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  


**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…
