Rice Krispy Train

Today’s project was to make a Rice Krispy Train. Someone in the household needed a snack for work, so I came up with this idea.

Step One: Buy a Nordic Ware Train pan and wait for Amazon to deliver said pan.

Step Two:  Buy the Rice Krispy, Marshmallows, M&Ms, chocolate, spray icing.

Step Threes:  Unpack the box from Amazon and say “So, pretty!  Yay!”  Wash the pan.

Step Four:  Wait until Wednesday, so the “someone” can bring it to work on Thursday.

Step Five:  Make the Rice Krispy Treat mixture and spray the pan with pam.  Stuff the Rice Krispy treat mixture into the pan.

Step Six:  Make more Rice Krispy Treat mixture, because the first batch did not fill up the pan.

Step Seven:  Fill the pan with mixture and use the left over to make ground.

Step Eight:  Go to Walmart to buy more decorations because now you have ground.

Step Nine: Buy green candy melt and licorice.

Step Ten:  Cut licorice, melt green candy melt, pour over ground, and spread out.  Wait, ground is not smooth.  Make little slashes in candy melt to make it look like grass.  Put licorice on candy melt so it looks like railroad tracks.  That candy melt dried quickly.

Step Eleven:  Microwave first batch of chocolate (dark chocolate) and spoon over Rice Krispy Train cars.  That chocolate is drying fast.  This is as much fun and pouring paint over canvases.

Step Twelve:  Microwave second batch of chocolate (milk chocolate) and spoon over Rice Krispy Train cars.  This chocolate is not drying.  Time to wait to see if chocolate dries.

Step Thirteen:  Put wheels on train.  (The M&M that were sprayed with Silver Icing – oh, that was done around step five.)  The milk chocolate cars have not dried – put wheels on those trains cars first.

Step Fourteen: Put remaining decoration on dried train cars, and place on train track.

Step Fifteen:  Talk to the cable repairman, wait while his fixes the cable.

Step Sixteen:  Yay!  The other cars are dry.  Place on train track.

Step Seventeen:  Take pictures.

The Rice Krispy recipe is on the back of boxes of Rice Krispy and the Marshmallows bags.

The melting instructions for the candy melt and chocolate are on the back of the bag/container.

Low-Carb Pizza

I have fallen way behind posting to my site.  Since August, I have had a lot of experience and hopefully with the new year I will be able to catch up and post some new experiences.

All of my “good” cookbooks were lost in the 2016 Great Flood Of Louisiana, so I have spent numerous minutes looking at recipes, trying to come up with something good.  I have been inspired by several websites.

This is my low-carb pizza:

20161230_105524

Ingredients:

1 large egg beaten
1/2 tsp of Italian Seasoning
1/2 cup of Pizza Cheese (grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese mixture)
7 slices of pepperoni
Olive oil flavor Cooking spray

Heat small (8″) skillet over medium/high heat. Beat together large egg and Italian Seasoning in small bowl. When skillet is hot, spray with cooking spray and pour in egg. Adjust skillet so the egg is cooking evenly. Turn on the oven’s Hi boiler. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the egg mixture. The egg does not need to be cooked all the way before adding cheese. Place pepperoni on cheese. Cooking until the cheese is mostly melted and the peperoni has a glimmer.

Remove skillet from heat and place under the boiler. Let cook under boiler until desire crispiness. Watch closely, it will only take a couple of minutes until done.  Remove from broiler.  Make sure everything is turned off.

Place on a plate, cut, and serve.

It’s a good think I have a tester to try out all my creations.

Pizza Stuff

This recipe was created after I gave up all flour and I still wanted pizza.

Pizza Stuff

Pizza Stuff

Ingredients:

  • 1 lbs. Ground Meat
  • 1 lbs. Italian Sausage
  • 4 Slices of Cooked Crispy Bacon crumbled
  • 50+/- Slices of Pepperoni
  • 20+/- Slices of Canadian Bacon (optional)
  • 1/2 small onion chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 bell pepper chopped (optional)
  • 8 oz. of shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 12 oz. of shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder

Needed Items:

  • Skillet
  • Baking Dish – I usually used a deep pie dishes but any baking dishes will work.
  • Spoon to stir mixture

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees

Place Ground Meat in skillet and season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.  A 1/4 teaspoon of each is usually sufficient.  Add Italian Sausage, Onions and Bell pepper. Cook until the meat mixture is brown.

After meat is brown add approximately 20 slices of Pepperoni and 20 slices for Canadian Bacon to ground meat mixture.  This is strictly according to your taste.  I usually add both to the bottom of the skillet and stir.  Let the mixture simmer while you prepare a baking dish.

  • Layer the bottom of baking dish with Pepperoni
  • Cover the Pepperoni with half of the meat mixture
  • Cover the meat mixture with half of the Cheddar Cheese
  • Add another layer of Pepperoni
  • Cover the Pepperoni with the remaining meat mixture
  • Sprinkle crumbled Bacon over meat mixture
  • Add another layer of Pepperoni
  • Cover entire dish with the Mozzarella Cheese

Bake in Oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees or until all cheese is melted and turning golden brown.  I usually cook for 20 minutes and  then check every 5 minutes until done.

Let sit for 5 to 10 minutes and slice and serve.

This dish maybe low carb, but it does have a lot of fat.
