Okay, lastnight I tried the High Protein Chicken Pizza recipe that Chris posted a few weeks ago. I did a few modifications, namely omitting the tahini (we didn't have any handy), and using jarred pizza sauce to save time (the lowest sugar content we could find). Our toppings were pepperoni and sliced mushrooms, and we also used mozzarella cheese because we eat dairy at our house.

It was AWESOME!!! :D Totally satisfied the pizza craving without any of the guilt (or coma-like crash) that comes from having a crust.

This recipe is definitely going into the rotation for quick and easy weeknight meals. Next time we will be extra virtuous and include a salad with it (but I had cucumber slices in my Hendricks & tonic... does that count?) ;)

Thanks for the recipe, Chris!

Spam Musubi. It's terrible for you. But terribly tasty as well.

Recipe:

Stuff:
*1 can of spam
*3 cups of glutinous rice
*7-8 squares of nori, cut in half.
*2 eggs
*6 tablespoons soy sauce
*6 tablespoons sugar
*6 tablespoons rice vinegar
*2 tablespoons rice wine
*Peel of one orange

Steps:

1.) Cook rice in rice cooker. No rice cooker? Just boil it
2.) Cut whole block of spam into 7-8 pieces. Marinate in soy sauce, sugar and orange peel for 10 minutes.
3.) Break and mix eggs with rice wine. Fry into a thin omelette and cut omelette into 7-8 pieces. Set aside.
4.) Fry spam until crispy.
5.) Use the empty spam can as a mold. Put in rice first, followed by spam, egg slice and rice. Press down hard with a spoon. Tap mixture out of Spam can, add 1 tbsp of rice vinegar, wrap with nori and roll into shape with bamboo sushi mat.
6.) Go do some f#cking parkour after you come out of the insulin coma.

If anyone wants a delicious recipe that might not be so healthy I have a recipe for chocolate-rum pudding cake.  If cooked right it is the best tasting thing I have ever experienced. 

If you want it message me because I want to know if anyone wants the recipe before I go find the cook book that has the recipe.

What are you waiting for Ben? First rule of food is that it has to be tasty (barring anti-freeze or poisonous mushrooms).

Go ahead and post it. Sure it'll be unhealthy, but it'll taste good.

I disagree -- first rule is that it needs to be healthy.  Second is that it needs to be tasty...but that's just my opinion :P

OK, so I used to love this when I was little. I hadn't eaten it in a really long time, but my mom served it for supper when I was visiting last week, and I seriously think it needs to be re-added to the dinner rotation. :)


Texas Hash
(I have no idea where this name came from, since we're all originally from the MN/WI area...)

1/2 lb hamburger*
1 large or 2 small onions
1 bell pepper (optional)
1 or 2 large tomatoes
1 tsp. salt
between 1/2 tsp. and 1 tsp. chilli powder, to taste
1/4 cup rice**


1) Put the hamburger in a large skillet and start it browning. Make sure to break it up into small crumbles. Start the oven preheating to 350.

2) While the hamburger is browning, cut up the onion and bell pepper (if desired - I use a green bell pepper, but you can use any color). It works best if they're cut into long, thin strips, or like onion rings. Add them to the pan and mix it around a bit.

3) While that's cooking, cut up the tomato(es) into big chunks. When the onions have turned clear, add the tomato chunks to the pan and mix them in.

4) Add the salt and chilli powder to the pan. When the tomatoes have gotten nice and squishy, turn off the heat.

3) Measure out 1/4 cup of rice. Rinse it in water a couple of times, until the water runs clear. Throw away the water, and add the rice to the pan. Mix it around, and transfer all this to a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with a lid.

5) Put the casserole dish in the oven and cook for about 1/2 an hour, until the rice is done. You may want to open it up and stir it about halfway through.

Serves 2-3.



*You can use more than this, if you like. For a nice variation, ground turkey works, too. :)

**You can omit the rice if you want to, but I figure 1/4 cup split between several people probably isn't that bad.
Just take the next step.A day without a challenge is a wasted day.

Paleo Burgers!  Basically, a modified cabbage roll, honestly, but.. here we go.

2lbs of ground beef (extra lean)
1 egg
chopped onions
minced garlic
chopped parseley
Chili powder
Crushed red pepper
Ground red pepper
One head of cabbage

Basically, you're going to mash everything other than the cabbage up together, then form burger patties out of the mixture.  Now, I mix my own chili powder, but you can use prepared stuff.  This just makes the burger taste a bit like chili.  Lol.  LIGHTLY blanche the cabbage leaves.  We don't want them as flimsy as they are for cabbage rolls.  And grill the burgers as you like.

Once the leaves have cooled, wrap the burgers in th eleaves.  You can add slices of cheese or whatever else you want to your burgers, but this has been a certainly tasty way to have homemade burgers without the buns.

not quite sure why everyone on YouTube thinks this gives you a heart attack/clogged arteries/bad health. Its actually pretty healthy if you're active and especially if you are looking to gain weight.

The only real bad part is mixing all that fat with the carbs on the bread. I would eat the burger itself (bacon and all) with more veggies and it should be just fine, nutritionally, especially if the person eating it is active on a strength training program.

Oh, btw, sick vid - i love those powerthirst guys :P

I just found an amazing recipe for salmon (comes from Cook's Country).  It is very easy, takes little to no time to cook, and if you are only cooking for yourself or one other, you will have some great left overs for the rest of the week:

Serves 4

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 orange juice
2 Tablespoons honey
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 (5-inch) sprig rosemary
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 skin-on salmon fillets, 6 ounces each, 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick
salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons butter

Whisk vinegar, juice,honey and pepper flakes together in small bowl, then add rosemary.  Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until smoking.  Season salmon with salt and pepper and cook, skin side up, without moving, until well browned, 4 to 5 minutes.  Flip fish skin side down and cook until all but very center of fish is opaque, 2 to 3 minutes.  Transfer to platter and tent with foil.

Wipe out pan with paper towels and lower heat to medium.  Carefully pour balsamic mixture into pan (it will splatter).  Simmer until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.  Remove rosemary sprig.  Whisk in butter, season sauce with salt and pepper, and pour over salmon.

I replaced the vegetable oil and butter with olive oil and it turned out great.

Here is another great recipe for anyone trying to increase their intake of vegetables.  It is really easy to make, and is incredibly refreshing.

Gazpacho

1 green pepper
3 large tomatoes
4 green onions, minced
1 cucumber, peeled
1 fresh parsley sprig
1 clove garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon cumin powder
dash of cayenne
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup olive oil

Boil the green pepper 6 minutes, then cut it into small pieces. (Remove the seeds)
Skin and slice the tomatoes, and slice the peeled cucumber.  Put the vegetables in the blender with the parsley, garlic, seasonings, vinegar, tomato juice and olive oil.  After the ingredients are pureed, chill the mixture.

The best way to skin the tomatoes is to put them in boiling water for 20 seconds and then let the sit until the skin begins to crack and peel.

Open up oven (leave it on) and put a slice of salami on top of each slice of cheese.
Put back in oven on same settings for 1min.
Take out and turn off the oven. MANDATORY.
IN ORDER: Put a piece of turkey, ham, w/e, cheese, salami, oregano, pepper, hot sauce, and repeat until out of turkey, ham, w/e, cheese, and salami.
Put two pieces together and push down on sandwich /sammich / w/e you call it.

This is one of my favorite recipes for summer... so tasty! And pretty healthy too! All measurements are to taste.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Citrus-Slaw Salsa

Make salsa ahead of time: chop orange and grapefruit sections. Add red onion and red bell pepper, both cut into thin matchsticks. Add shredded cabbage. Pour lime juice over all and toss to coat. Add a splash of olive oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle in chopped fresh cilantro (you have to use fresh or it doesn't taste the same). Chill salsa while you prepare the fish.

Mix olive or canola oil with lime juice, chili powder, salt, & cumin. It should be about the consistency of a thin gravy. Paint onto both sides of boneless fish fillets (I like to use tilapia for these). Be sure to coat thoroughly and evenly. Grill fish (or broil) until done, turning halfway through cooking. Heat and salt 8" corn tortillas in the meantime.

Fill warm tortillas with grilled fish. Top with salsa and a small drizzle of sour cream.
