Sweetened Condensed Milk

Have you seen that wonderful recipe floating around for sweetened condensed milk that is on plan?

No?

Check this out: Sweet Condensed Milk Recipe

Now, when you read this recipe you will quickly realize you need some patience as it has to simmer for 4 hours!  I saw this recipe over a year ago and thought of all the wonderful possibilities.  Then... I just never found 4 hours to simmer something.  And really, it's such a simplistic recipe, it seemed too good to be true.  Really.

Then I came across one of those recipe videos on Facebook.  You know the ones.  We are all guilty of watching, saving and sharing them.  This one was the pumpkin pie in muffin cups made with sweetened condense milk.  Have you seen it?

No?

Now.  Is.  The.  Time!  I decided to make the pies with the infamous milk.  Unfortunately I only had one can of full fat coconut milk so I improvised (and boy and I glad I did!)  It turned out wonderful!  I can only imagine the or…

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup)

Caldo de Res (Mexican Beef Soup) with Zing!!!

This soup is so fantastic. So, in your face, with Mexican flavor.  So... very different from your run of the mill, typical beef soup! My family and I have been going to our favorite Mexican restaurant for 12 years now. They know us by our van, as we pull into the parking lot. My husband eats lunch their 4 time a week....at least! They have his table all set up with his food and drink when he walks in. It's a comfort for our children to go somewhere they feel special and the servers know them by name. Also, having 6 kids, we tend to make a bit of a mess. This restaurant expects the chaos we bring, so it's no big surprise! Lol!
This restaurant created a new soup for the winter season. We sampled it the day they created it. It was delicious. Unfortunately, they put bacon in it so I had to mock up a pork free version for us. I didn't dare ask them their recipe (my Spanish is rusty anyway), so this is a taste to memory s…

HALLOWEEN 2015 {THM style}

It's Halloween...  ...and the truly scariest sight is a tired momma!  She's the real zombie!  I had just rangled 6 kids at an over crowed fall festival.  Ticket cost were sucking me dry.  Really! 2 BUCKS to throw a pie?!  I had lost one kid for a good 15 minutes, there were a few tantrums, gimme this and gimme that mantras, "I'm cold"...."I'm bored"..."I wanna go home"...."I don't wanna go home!!!" By the time I got home and rubbed my eyes, in pure exhaustion, I had concluded that I invented the zombie look long before Walking Dead.  
Halloween is one of those holidays that just makes people loose all crotrol when it comes to food and especially 'treats'.  Can I get an amen?  Those little twizzlers and snickers will not keep or make your hips little...if you know what I'm saying!  And all the party food!  Is there a way to eat the spooky treats and still not have all those ghoulish guilts?
Answer.... YES!
