Egg Roll in a bowl

You will need:
1 lb ground something (beef, sausage, chicken, Turkey) I used turkey
1 bag dry coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
2 tbsp garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce (low sodium preferred)
1 teaspoon ginger

** I felt like we needed something else in our bowl. So I cooked some whole wheat rice and added it to it**

  • In a large, deep skillet, brown ground meat. Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine garlic, soy sauce, and ginger; set aside.
  • Once meat is cooked through, add dry coleslaw mix to skillet and stir to combine.
  • Pour soy sauce mixture into the skillet and stir, continuing to cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until cabbage is wilted, but still a bit crunchy. 
  • Then this is where I added the cooked rice and mixed it together

    Trisha Yearwoods Angel Biscuits

    I watch Trisha Yearwood show the other day on the Cooking Channel. These biscuits looked so good that even my hubby said you gotta make these!! Today was a snowday and I thought it was a good day to make biscuits! They turned out so good and so flakey! Also make them in a cast iron pan. They cook much better. 

    You will need:
    5 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    5 tbsp sugar
    1/2 cup warm water
    3 tbsp active dry yeast
    1 cup butter melted
    2 cups buttermilk 


    Preheat oven at 425 Degrees
    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 3 tablespoons of the sugar.
    In a small bowl, combine the warm water with the yeast and the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar; stir until the yeast is dissolved. Let stand until bubbles appear, 2 to 3 minutes.
     Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Then add melted butter. Gently fold the flour into the wet ingredients. Keep mixing until a ball starts to form, then gently knead, 12 to 15 times, to create a smooth dough. Cover with a cloth or plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for approximately 1 hour.
    Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and press out to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick. Fold the dough in half, press again to 1- to 1 1/2-inches thick, and then fold again. Cut the dough using a 2- to 3-inch round biscuit cutter, depending personal preference. Brush the bottom of a cast-iron skillet with some of the melted butter. Place the biscuits in the skillet; brush the tops with melted butter.
    Bake until golden brown, 18 to 22 minutes, depending on size. Brush again with melted butter and serve immediately.

    3. Fold in chocolate chips.
    4. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan to form an even layer. Combine filling ingredients and beat until blended.

    Pecan Pie Cookies

    • 1 prepared single pie crust (homemade or purchased, I used Pillsbury)
    • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • ½ cup pecans, chopped
    • ⅓ cup packed brown sugar
    • ¼ cup corn syrup
    • 2 eggs
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ cup semi sweet or milk chocolate chip for decorating

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. In a large non-stick pan, combine butter, pecans, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt and eggs. Cook on the stove top over medium-low heat just until thickened. (You don't want it dry, just slightly thickened, about the consistency of pudding). Remove from heat and set aside.
    3. Unroll dough and using a 3" cookie cutter, cut out circles. Gently fold about ⅛-1/4" up on the edges.
    4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pecan mixture into each circle.
    5. Place on a parchment lined pan (it's important to line it) and bake 8 minutes or until filling is just set. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
    6. Place chocolate chips in a small Ziploc bag (use brand name, the store brands tend to leak). Microwave about 15 seconds or until mostly melted. Snip off a tiny corner of the baggie and drizzle chocolate over the cookies. Cool until set.
