Snow Day Recipes

Due to the many recent snow days I have had lots of time to cook and bake…Thanks to Pinterest for the ideas!

Kale Salad…Find the recipe here… I made this for the super bowl and it was delicious! We still have leftovers and they are great with a piece of chicken on the side.

This is a really terrible picture, but doesn’t it look like mashed potatoes!? It’s cauliflower! Here is the recipe I used

So easy and delicious, I tried “Crock Pot Fajitas”…this is a must try!

(Sorry, no picture!)

Crock Pot Chicken Fajitas

  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 sweet peppers, sliced
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless chicken breast or thighs
  • 1/4 to ½ cup chicken broth, depending on preference (leave this out if you prefer a drier fajita filling)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
  • Squirt of lime juice
  • Tortillas
  • Fajita fixings
  1. Combine sliced onion and peppers in the bottom of a greased crockpot.
  2. Lay chicken on top of veggies.
  3. Pour chicken broth over top.
  4. Sprinkle everything with cumin, salt, and chili powder.
  5. Give a nice quirt of lime juice over the top.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 4-8 hours (or on High for 4 hours) or until meat is shreddable.
  7. When meat is done, shred with two forks and stir back into juices. Serve meat mixture with slotted spoon on tortillas with your choice of fixings.

My favorite thing I made were these “Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies”…they are the perfect pick me up in the afternoon with a cup of tea! They are also filling and gluten free if you use gluten free oats (I did not, but if thats your thing, do it!)

Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies made with only a few wholesome ingredients. 1 bowl, ready in less than 25 minutes!

I do not have a picture for you because my cookies are currently frozen in individual baggies so I don’t eat them all!

And then this morning the most gigantic pancake happened…
