As promised, here is my review of the Low-Carb Pizza Burgers that I made two weeks ago. The idea for this delicious low-carb recipe comes from HowToThisAndThat.com. I haven’t tried any of the other recipes from this site, but I’m glad I tried this one out. The rest of the family was glad too! Difficulty Level: Normal Mode While this recipe wasn’t too difficult to prepare, there were things that I had to tweak, and it took a little more prep work […]
As promised, here is my review of the Bacon Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole that I made last week. This odd, but delicious low-carb recipe comes from SugarFreeMom.com. I haven’t tried any of the other recipes from this site, but I’m glad I tried this one out. The rest of the family was glad too! Difficulty Level: Normal Mode I want to say this recipe would be suitable for n00bs, but there are a few things that aren’t really explained very well, […]
Last week, we tried out a new recipe! If you’ve read my blog before, you’re probably getting the picture that the mister and I are creatures of habit. When we find something we like, we tend to stick with it. Recipes are no different. Well, I have to say that we’ve found a winner in this delicious Crockpot Beef Roast from Life as the Coats. Difficulty Level: Easy Mode This recipe was incredibly simple. It takes five ingredients, and only […]
It’s Black Friday, which for most people means they are out storming the stores. Luckily, I have most of my Christmas shopping already completed. So that means I get to stay home, relax, go get my nails done around noon, and then come home and play games for the rest of the day. Maybe we’ll even pop in one of my all-time favorite movies! Since I talked about books last week I decided to make a return to movies this week. […]
Woohoo! It’s Friday! Last week I talked movies, but who is ready to celebrate the arrival of the weekend with a good book? That’s right, I’m going to be talking about books today. My list of favorites this week is not just about my favorite books, it’s about my favorite fiction book series. What do I mean by book series? To clarify, I consider a series to be three or more books written by the same author and following the […]
The mister and I love to go see a movie. It’s one of our favorite things to do on the weekend. We go to the movies a lot. However, we have a pretty limited type of movie that we enjoy. For instance, horror movies are out for me. Romance is out for him (and for me most of the time). We both enjoy comedy, sci-fi, fantasy, and some comic book movies. And Disney. Don’t even get me started on Disney. […]
Welcome to a new feature here at Amazing Mimi: Friday Favorites. In my everyday life, I am very much a list maker. I make to-do lists, packing lists, grocery lists…you name it, I can make a list about it. After all, what is a menu, but a list of what you plan to eat? So instead of just talking about one particular thing, I decided that I should make a list! Fridays are now dedicated to a list of favourites […]
Prep took me approximately 20 minutes, but that’s mostly because I was being slow. If I’d been in a hurry, I could have had it done in 15. The biggest time saver is to drain, rinse and pat the tomatoes dry while the sausage is browning.
Last night we tried out these Salmon Patties with Fresh Herbs over at Ruled.me. The first time I make a recipe, it always takes me longer than I anticipate it will, mostly because I haven’t figured out what changes and tricks I can use to make things go faster.
Of course, I made adjustments, because that’s what I do! There was no way I was going to cut up all those veggies by hand, and I certainly wasn’t about to start measuring out spices. That’s for people who have time!
I began to brown the meat, humming to myself as I worked. And then the timer went off. Well, they certainly looked quite nice. And then I tried to remove them from the parchment paper.
Tonight we tried a new recipe! Low-carb Pepperoni Pizza Chicken from Kalyn’s Kitchen. This is one of those recipes that, if you didn’t know it was, you wouldn’t think it was something you could eat on a diet.
