Nachos With Meat Recipe



Nachos With Meat Recipe 


This Nacho recipe is one of my winners and the most wanted foods that my Friends want when they come to my home to watch a film or some game on Tv. Now the old "popcorn" thing will not do it anymore.


How can anything like this be so good and so simple to make. Now by adding an awesome tomato base sauce to the ground beef with all that cheese is something that no one can say no to it.  I really have a problem with this recipe because everyone just gobbles them all up and then they just stand there with their empty plates asking for more.  I found that it was better to make a lot on smaller plates than to make one big one, that way it cuts down on fights (not real fights).

So if you make these nachos, then be warned to make a lot, for I know you will need them.

Good luck with keeping up....


********************************************************************************************************

Recipe;

1 - Pkg. -  Plain or salted nachos

1 1/2 lbs. - Medium ground meat
1  Cup - Shredded cheddar cheese
1  Can - Diced tomato's
1  Can - Red kidney beans (drained)
1  Pkg. - Pre-mix Taco, kebab or steak sauce.
1  Med. - Onion
2  Tbsp. - Cooking oil
3  Tbsp. - Tomato paste
3/4 Cup - Any beer

Hot sauce to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

1/2  Cup - Sliced black olives
1/2  Cup - Green onions
Sour cream as needed
Parsley as needed


Taco mix from scratch.
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon  cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper




********************************************************************************************************




There are so many ways on how to make this recipe, so I have just shown you the basics. 

Go ahead and add really anything you would like. Add chicken breasts or just add more beans and turn it into a vegetarian snack.  No one is limited to all the various options to this dish. 





Here I am using a medium ground beef for I like the extra fat to give off a more flavorful taste to the dish. Now if you want you could use  more of a lean beef if you are on the "weight watchers" side. 







I used the can red kidney beans because I find it more convent to use and it is a bit softer that reduces the cooking time.  The beans should be drained of all the water because we do not want to overpower the taste of the other ingredients.   

Go ahead and add any other type of beans and make it your way.   




Now go ahead and enjoy this recipe "Nachos" with your Family and Friends, like I do with mine. 

Just remember to have some more on hand to keep everyone happy. Trust me, you will run out fast.

Mini Custard Puff Pastries - Pastelis De Natas



Mini Custard Puff Pastries - Pastelis De Natas

These are Portuguese Custard Tarts / Pasteis de Natas, devotedly handmade to a 300-from a year-old recipe, with a  thick, creamy egg custard, sitting comfortably in a cosy puff of puff pastry and just asking to be eaten. 

Enjoy them with a sprinkling of berries or stick religiously to tradition. Also, add other things to it, like icing sugar or cinnamon. 


Want more traditional.

Now you know that the typical Portuguese Pastelis De Natas are a little bigger and a bit more brown on the top, but this is the way I like it and made it smaller for a two-bite treat. I just find that my guests like this better.


If you want them more traditional, then just make the puff pastry about 50% larger and a bit more thick. Also, bake it a bit longer to get more of the browning on top...
Anyway you make them, they will be awesome.


*************************************************************************************************************


Recipe;

I Pkg. - Pre-made pastry dough.

1 1/2  Cups - Whole milk
1 Egg -  Whole
2 Egg -  Yolks
1 Stick - Cinnamon
1/ 2  - lemon peel

1 Cup - Water
1 to 1 1/2 Cups -  Sugar

1 to 2 Tsp. - Vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. - Corn starch


For more information, please see video below; 



*************************************************************************************************************


After pressing the dough down, use your thumbs to press it to the sides of the tray pockets. If you keep moving the tray around, so your fingers are always pressing the dough away from you, will make it easier. 

For a larger custard, then add about 50% more dough and  let it be a bit higher in the tray pocket rim. 



After the tray has been in a hot oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, bring it out and then push the middle down in order to create a center pocket in the dough. It will all adjust when you add the custard and  fill out. 






Add as much as you want of lemon peel and cinnamon. Have it as tart as you would like. 

Remember not to let it a full boil, but only a simmering boil. Once it reaches its simmer, then let it go for 3 minutes, but keep an eye on it.   For it could over fill the pot and make a mess. 



Add the corn starch when the mixture is starting to get warm, if it gets too hot then it will become globes of  dough. 


As you reach this stage, it is very important to keep on stirring  so it will not burn and we want a smooth  blend. 





When the hot mixture sticks to your whisk and slowly slides off slowly, then you know it is ready. 
  
Caution is needed to keep on stirring, because as the custard becomes thicker, then the chances of it burning will increase.

Chicken Pasta Lasagna Recipe


Chicken Pasta Lasagna Recipe



When it comes to a Party, everyone likes a Lasagna dish, so I have the answer. Now it has to be good, filling and fast to make, but best of all it has to look awesome and make your guests mouth water.


This dish is the answer, this  is the king of kings when it comes to taste and ease of making it.  Do not let this dish fool you just because it is done so simple, just because it takes just a few things to make it, Go ahead and see what I mean here, the proof if in the pudding or should I say the lasagna. 


Let me know how yours turned out and/or did you add anything to it. 




**************************************************************************************************************

Recipe;

1 Pkg. -  Penne pasta

2  Med. - Chicken breast
2  Cups - Tomato sauce
2  Tbsp. - Cooking oil
2  Tbsp. -  Olive oil
1  Lbs.   -  Mozzarella cheese
1  Cup - Parmesan cheese ( a bit more for topping)
1  Tsp. - Basil ( a bit more for topping)
1  Tsp - Oregano

Salt and pepper to taste.



For more information, please see video below; 




**************************************************************************************************************


Everyone likes chicken and here I am using a chicken that is "free range", in this way I get the best taste. If you use frozen breasts, then thaw them for 24 hours in your fridge to remove the water. 

It is not necessary to brown the breasts right to the point of being hard. We want the chicken to stay moist and soft to blend-in with the cheese's. 



I find that the penne pasta works better for this dish because it keeps everything together better and better is good. 

Please do not drain the pasta under water for we want the starches to thicken up the sauce and make it smooth tasting and full looking. 




Really you can use any type of tomato sauce, so go ahead and try them all. See what works for you, from the garlic to the herb sauce it will be a different adventure every time. 

How about making it yours self, homemade for me is the way to go. (see video below). 




Go ahead and add as much as you want for topping, you really cannot go wrong. 

Try it with different cheese's and herbs, a real treat every time. 







Sorry I did a bit of tempting on the last part of the video, but I wanted to entice you into trying it. I think it was a good thing....:)

Portuguese Chorizo Egg Casserole Recipe



Portuguese Chorizo Egg Casserole Recipe

When it comes to Portuguese cuisine, this one is one of my favorites. It starts with a juicy sausage, chorizo that  has all the full flavour that just comes out in this dish. From the pork, paprika, garlic and fully smoked  sausage   creates a perfect fit to any combination. 



I remember when my Mother made this and the aroma from the kitchen drove me crazy, so much, to the point that I would just grab some bread and when no one was looking, I just scooped it out on the bread and I was in heaven. Well, the pot here did not last long on the table, it was gone in a few minutes. 

Please let us know how your dish turned out and did you add anything else to it. 





************************************************************************************************************

Recipe;

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of  chorizo

1/4 Cup - olive oil
1 Med. - Onion
1 to 2 cloves - Garlic
1/3 Cup - Red or white wine
3 Tbsp. - Tomato paste
1 Tbsp  - Hot sauce
2 - Bay leafs

2/3 Cups - Frozen peas
1 Med. - Carrot
1 Med. - Tomato

3 - Eggs


For more information, please see video below. 



************************************************************************************************************



Now you can really use any type of sausage, just make sure that it has some good deep flavour, so it can blend in with this dish. I have tried this also with bacon and it was also good, but I still prefer the chorizo. 






Try to slice the sausage as thin as possible, for in this way it will release the juices making a great sauce. 

Remember to not over fry it for we do not want it on the crisp side, but soft and moist.






Piri Piri is my favourite hot sauce, but you can use really any type that will make you happy. Go ahead and add as much as you want, make your day. 







Use any type of veggies that you like, it is really up to you.









Cook the eggs until you get it to the hardness that you would like, that again depends on your taste. Me I like them on the soft side, but my Girlfriends likes them a bit more solid.

Apple Roses Bake Recipe



Apple Roses Bake Recipe

Well, it was raining for about three days straight and I really needed something to change my mood from being stuck indoors. After checking the food storage area, I found that I still had a lot of apples from my garden. 

So off to the kitchen to make these awesome aromatic Apple Roses. The problem I had was to make about a dozen or so, but as they came out of the oven  filling the air with baked apple and   cinnamon, they did not even make it to a plate. They disappeared as fast as I could make them.

I hope you will try this recipe and let me know how it turned out and did you add anything different to it.



*************************************************************************************************************



Recipe; 

2 to 3 - Apples
1 to 2 Pkg. - Pre-ready pastry dough (makes 6 to 8 pieces each)
1 to 1 1/2 Ltrs or 3 to 4 pints of water
1/2 - Juice of a lemon

Cinnamon as needed
Powdered sugar as needed

Makes about 12 to 18 Apple Roses


For more information, please see video below;



*************************************************************************************************************




By using apples that have more red in it, it gives off a nicer color like a rose.  Here I use a combination of different colors just to have more variety to show on the video. 







If  you do not like to use the microwave oven for this stage then you can boil the water with the lemon and apples for about 3 minutes. Either way it will work out.







On the video, I am using homemade raspberry jam that was from my garden. Now go ahead and add really any type of jam that you would like. 






If you would like a lighter pastry, then you can roll the dough a little, but I find that I like it the way it was made.

By making the roses a little smaller, then you could get about 4 section from each side by slicing 3 horizontal and 1 vertical. This will give you 8 sections. 





Please do not overfill the sections with jam and apples, for it will make it harder for you to roll it and the jam will boil off everywhere and make a mess. 






You can find that as you start to roll the rose, the apples will try to move out of position. Keep one of your fingers on the top of the apple slices as you roll and that will keep them in place. 

Remember "pratice makes perfect". 






Use a teflon baking dish or make sure that you pre-treat it before you bake it so the roses will just slide off.

Blueberry Pancakes Recipe



Blueberry Pancakes Recipe


I have to say that "I just love Pancakes" and for me I add many different toppings from almost every fruit, berries and even chocolate syrup. 

After making  many of them, I found out that I can really make a huge batch in a matter of minutes, mind you that would use two pans with about 3 pancakes in each.So do not be afraid to try this recipe for it is really that easy, you can not go wrong. 

My guests and family that have  a sleepover in my home, just love to wake up to a huge plate of these awesome pancakes. The only problem I have, is keeping up to their appetite. After all, they want to try it in many different ways, for I make sure there are enough batter and toppings. Always a  the best way to start the morning.    

Let us know how your pancakes turned out and what other topping did you try.


**********************************************************************************************************


Recipe:

1 1/2 Cups - All purpose flour
1/2 Cup - Milk, plus more as needed
1 Tsp. - White or brown sugar
1 Tsp. - Baking powder
1 Tbsp. - Cooking oil or butter
1 Tsp. - Salt
1 - Egg

Makes   2 Pancake servings.

Topping
3/4 Cups - Blueberries


For more information, please see video below.




**********************************************************************************************************



In the video, I am using all-purpose flour, but if you want you can use a 50/50 of whole  and regular flour. 

Also,  try it with about 25% buckwheat or even instant oatmeal. Anyway, you make it, it will be awesome. 



After adding the 1/2 cup of milk, keep adding more milk a little at a time. In this way, you will always have control of the thickness of the pancake. 

Keep stirring and adding milk until the batter sticks to your whisk but flows down slowly in a steady stream and  off your whisk. Remember  not over stir the batter, stop when it reaches the above point.  


Use a Teflon pan and make your life a lot easier, Now you do not have to add any oil to this type of pan and it will work well, but after awhile they just do not do the job as good as when it was new. So I find by using a little oil, it helps it along, cook more evenly and the pancakes look better



I make  my pancakes a little bit on the smaller side because I like them to be piled up high, for me it just looks better. Now really the size depend on your preference that suits you. Larger or smaller will not change the taste, only the appearance.





When you see the bubbles coming to the surface of the batter, then you know that it is time to flip it over. Now, if you are not sure of the timing of your pancake, then when you see the above, just it it a pick under it one or two time. After a few, you get then hang of it and become an expert. 







Remember, do not push the pancake down and try to flatten it, for it will make them chewy and hard.

How To Stop Hair Loss And Strengthen Regrowth.  


Just like every Man or Woman, there comes a time when you hair starts to become thinner and then it just starts falling off.  I always had  a good full hair on my head and I have to say that I didn't really worry about it, for it always looked the same full and thick Only after getting older after 50 or so I noticed that the texture was different and  my hairline was starting to recede. Now what could I expect at my age, it is normal to lose some of my hair. Right ?


Now when I actually saw some bald spots on the top of my hair and  on the sides, then I went into a panic, no way I can not see myself going bald. This started about a year ago and I started to use all the different types of miracle cures in a bottle, lotions and/or  pills.  Over the months, I did see an improvement, but just a little. Then I stopped because it was costing me a lot of money and I  resigned to stay the way I was, no choice. I gave up !

Well  a couple of weeks after that, I noticed a lot of hair in my sink and in the shower again, when I say a lot, I mean a lot. I knew that I had to do something for it was getting worse. There was no way I was going back to those previous treatments I tried before, they took my money, but it  really did not work. So there has to be a better way.  

One thing that I did notice was that in the Southern part of Poland, that the mountain People had beautiful strong hair and I really did not see too many bald men around..Why?, I had to find out. So into the car and off to the Mountains. There I started asking almost everyone I could communicate with my poor Polish about what did they do to get their hair so strong and not lose it with age. Trust me that I got a lot of answers, all way from drinking more vodka to rubbing your hair with urine.  I talked to a lot of the older Generation, yes even older than me, it was really a bagful of information. Now one thing kept coming up was nettle, a plant that in the past I tried to keep away from for it stung like a bee when you rubbed against it. 

I could not beleave it, this plant "Nettle" it was all around me  a weed that could help me with the hair loss. I had to try it, so to my kitchen I went. After getting some instruction from the local Mountain People, I learned how to handle it and how to make it safe to drink.  I even grabbed some of the plants with the roots to replant in my home to make sure I got the right one. 

After preparing it as directed, I strained it into a glass and tried it. I have to say that it was not that bad, so for the next week I had a glass of it every day at  night.  I really did not take any more because to tell you the truth, I was scared of it, after all it had stingers on it before boiling it.

In about a week or so I started  noticing that my hair had stopped falling out and as the days went on there was less and less of my hairs in my brush and in the sink. I really did not think much of this because I was let down with those other products and did not want to count up all the eggs before they are laid.  I really believed that because of my age, that I would have to except the hair loss and get rid of all the mirrors in the house, so I could not see myself. 

In around the second month, I started to see that all my hair had stopped falling off and I could feel my hair getting really full and thick around my head next to my skin. The funny thing was I could actually see some very fine hair starting to grow where it was not there before, wow !, what was happening here. 

Ok, Ok, I had to admit that it was working, but I wanted more, it had to work and since I had to drink a lot of it, it has to taste better, so again "off to my Kitchen"....

That's where this drink came from, for after experimenting with so many combinations it finally came to the right one.  I also changed it to the program that you see on the video, so in order to allow the body to rest from the drink for awhile and then starting again gets more positive results. 

Well after six months you can look at the pictures below and see the results, it worked and I am really happy with this. I have reached my goal and I got my hair where I want it, so I have reduced the drink to about one to three glasses a week. I really do not need any more and I did this after the first 3 months. My  hair continued to grew and become stronger and stronger, with no other side effects. 

I hope this drink helps you like it helped my, and you can trust me for I am not selling you anything, I am not asking for any type of pay. I just ask for a nice comment about your hair after you reach your goal with this drink and  share it with your friends...




**********************************************************************************************************






About six months ago I saw my hair falling off and for the first time, I started to see a bald spot on the top of my head. Now my hair is full and strong, most of the bald spot has disappeared and I am loving it.  


Here is a side view of my hair falling off the sides, it just kept coming off.  This started later, for I started losing first on top, then it started on the sides, why? it was this way, I really have no idea. The important thing is that I have most of my hair back and I happy. 









**********************************************************************************************************


Recipe;

Nettle - About 15 leaves or 1 Tea bag.
1/2 Ltr./ 16 to 18oz. -  Water
1/3 to 1/2 - Lemon
1 Med. - Apple
2 Stacks - Celery
1 Bunch - Parsley


For more information, please see video below.



**********************************************************************************************************


 


ATTENTION:

FIRST CHECK WITH A MEDICAL DOCTOR BEFORE USING NETTLE.






ATTENTION:

STOP! TAKING THIS DRINK IF YOU FEEL OR SEE ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY.



Nettle or Stinging Nettle is the main factor in restoring your hair. If you are using the fresh type, please be careful handling it and make sure that you properly  boil it before you use it.



Make sure to keep the blender on high for about 3 minutes.






To get the bag, I had a dressmaker make a few up in different sizes in a 100% cotton material. Make sure the bag is large enough to get one blender vase size for to do it in parts will give you too much trouble. 

To remove the pulp just invert the bag and toss it into a bowl. The leftover pulp can be used to add to any cake mix.



Try  it   and see  how  this    works   with the bag method.  Remember  it's   best    to  have     small particles in your system to last longer than to just a liquid running through.

Now if you want you can use a Juicer machine, it is really up to you.

Asian Lemon Chicken Recipe



Asian Lemon Chicken Recipe


This recipe is one of my favorite and I make it very often. There are different versions to this one, instead of adding lemon, I add orange to it. Either way it is simple, fast and great tasting.  No matter how many times I make it, everyone always wants more, so make sure to make some extra. 

Let me know how yours turned out or/and did you do anything different to it. 


***************************************************************************************************************


Recipe;

1 1/2 Lbs. - Skinless chicken breast
2 Cups - All purpose flour
1/2 Tsp. - Pepper
1 Tsp. - Salt
1 - Egg

Sauce 
1/2 Cup - Lemon juice
1/2 Cup - Brown sugar
1/3 Cup - Vinegar
2 Tsp. - Soya sauce (option)
1/2 Tsp. - Hot pepper flakes
2 Tbsp. - Corn starch
1 Tsp. - Ground ginger
Water as needed

Toppings
Chopped green onions
Toasted sesame seeds


For more information, please see video below; 




***************************************************************************************************************



Here on the video I have cubed the chicken breasts, but you can really cut them up any way you like. 

It will also be good, just to leave the breast in one piece and pour the sauce on top. Just be careful  that you cook the chicken right through to the center because it will be very thick. Lower your heat for this method.



I let the chicken marinate for about  10 to 15 minutes before I cook it.

Now a couple of hours would be better, it depends on your time factor.






I only add salt in the flour because I do not want to over salt it, it holds better in the flour coating and it improves the taste better. It is not necessary to use too much salt, for the sauce has an  intense flavour.

Remember to not overcrowd the chicken pieces because  it will stick together and that would not be good.


Fry them on medium-high heat until they are golden brown on the outside and moist and tender in the outside. Please do not overcook them, for then they will be hard and chewy. 

If you are not sure, then just cut a piece and take a peek inside and check it. 

Now instead of adding lemon juice, try it with orange juice, different tastes of Asia, but the same awesome dish. 

To add soya sauce or not, well just because it is Asian does not mean that you have to use it. As for myself, I like it, but there is many who do not like my Girlfriend. So that really depends on your preferences to the Asian taste. 



Add whatever toppings that you like from my green onions to toasted sesame seeds. 


An awesome dish and one of my favourites. Hope you like it.
