Halloween Treats

As every mother knows the holidays are here and first up is Halloween with trick-or-treating, customs, candy, and school parties. This year I signed up to provide treats for my son’s class. To be honest it makes me a little nervous. I know the kids to don’t care what I take or how it looks as long as it is full of sugar and tastes good. I just feel a little added pressure from owning a company that makes amazing food and desserts. I also want my son to know that I will do just as good of a job for them as I do our clients.

So what’s it going to be this year, you might ask? A Pumpkin puking up fruit covered in greenish brown whipped cream, and hotdogs wrapped as mummies. I forgot to mention I am doing the savory as the other mom helping choose two sweets to bring. I think my son and his classmates will like what I’m bringing and the presentation is going to be amazing so I feel really good about my choices.

If you are having trouble thinking of a great idea or you would like some help in execution please leave a comment.

Happy Halloween!

Gluten Free Fried Eggplant

Gluten Free Fried EggPlant

Fried eggplant is a simple downhome recipe but the twist this Gluten Free Fried Eggplant is easy and delicious cooking. Usually this is made with flour but this time I used coconut flour and it turned out just fine.

1 egg plant
1 1/2 cup coconut flour
2 eggs
oil
salt and pepper to taste

In a pan put in about 1/8 inch oil, heat on medium.
Whip up your egg and season your flour in two separate bowls
Cut up your egg plant in 1/4 inch thick slices

 

Dip your egg plant in egg and then in the coconut flour

 

Fry in the pan so that they are brown on both sides

 

When they are done you can set them on a plate lined with a couple of paper towels.

 

ENJOY your gluten free fried eggplant! My little ones and I like to have ketchup on it. My husband on the other hand likes Sriracha, which is way to hot for me!
 
 
Just a note: I did find that after two rounds of cooking I needed to clean out the pan and use fresh oil. I believe this is due to the coconut flour. Just wipe out your pan with a collection of paper towels and heat up more oil.

SmotheredPorkChops

Smothered Pork Chops

Smothered Pork Chops are a family favorite in the Julian household.   I (Michelle) got the recipe from my mom Ci Hawkins.  As kids when we would walk in the front door there was no question what was for dinner, we could smell it.   My mother would make smothered porkchops, mashed potatoes and green beans.  Today I am going to show you the process that is so easy you’ll want to make some of your own as soon as possible.

1 package bone in pork chops
1 onion
olive oil or pam
salt and pepper
1 or 2 cans cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
(1 can for 5-4 chops & 2 cans for 6-8 chops)
First we start with a our package of Bone-In Pork Chops and our pan on HI with a good amount of Olive oil to coat the pan.

 

Next we brown the pork chops, and with the raw side up we put on pepper and salt.

FLIP to brown the other side, do the same to all pork chops.  Some times I need to add more Olive oil to keep the chops from sticking.Place all the pork chops in a large pan, they are able to stack.

Chop one onion in large chunks and add to the pan. Sprinkle with more Olive Oil. Add 1/4 cup water and watch the wonderful flavors come off the bottom of the pan. Cook the onion for about 5 mins and then poor over the pork chops

Next we poor the cooked onions over the top of the chops

Now we are going to use a can of cream of chicken soup but my mother would use cream of mushroom with a few shots of Worcestershire sauce.

Last we will cover it in foil and set the oven. 275 Degrees for 3 hours

If I have time I like to make this before we head out the door or the night before. Then I set my oven to start cooking at 2:00pm so dinner is almost ready at 5:00. Now all I have to do is make some sides, green bean, corn, carrots, potatoes or salad. We always use the gravy left in the chops pan for our potatoes. I hope your family likes it as much as ours.
