What's Cookin'?: Eggplant Parmigiana

What you will need:
1 eggplant
2 tbsp. oil
1 egg
1 tbsp. water
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup Parmesan
1 cup meatless spaghetti sauce
3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese 

I was craving pasta, but I'm on a low-carb diet. So, I decided to make this dish. It was so good. Not only did I love it, but Mason tried it too! Win! 

Wash and peel eggplant. Cut into 1/2 inch slices cutting the eggplant in a clockwise motion. Lightly beat egg and water in a separate dish. In another dish, pour flour. Dip eggplant in egg mixture. Dip in flour. Warm oil in pan on medium-high heat. Place slices in pan and cook for 4-6 minutes turning once. Remove eggplant and drain on paper towel. Wipe out pan. Place eggplant back in pan, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, add sauce, cover with mozzarella. Cover. Cook for seven minutes on medium-low heat. Serve. Enjoy!

What's Cookin'?: Mozzarella Chicken 

What you will need:
Boneless Chicken Breasts 
Wheat Germ
Garlic Salt
tomato, sliced thin

I don't know exact measurements, because I made enough for myself. I placed some wheat germ on a plate to roll the chicken in. I wanted a crust, but I didn't want to use breadcrumbs. I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but I must say; it was amazing! When I make it again, I will have it with wheat pasta. A healthier version of chicken parmigiana? Hmm, maybe! 

Slice chicken thinly. Roll in wheat germ. Season. Place mozzarella on chicken. Roll. Place tomato on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Enjoy.

Yum. Yes, it is amazing as it looks! 

What's Cookin'?: Energy Balls

What you will need:
1 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

(You can find the recipe here. I love her website, so make sure to check it out!)

I did not use the chocolate chips this time. However, I have, and it is good. I would cut it down to 1/4 cup, because I felt like it was a lot. 


Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Stir.  Place in fridge for 30 mins. After, use a tablespoon to dip mixture out and roll into balls. Store in fridge. Eat. Enjoy. YUM!

All the stuff! 



L O V E. My favorite snack.

What's Cookin'?: Kansas City Style Ribs

What you will need:
1 slab of ribs with pork spare or baby baby. (I personally like baby back)

1 bottle of bbq sauce of your choice. Pictured is craft, but I recommend Jackstack, Gates, or KC Masterpiece. 

4 tablespoons of vinegar

liquid smoke (optional)

rib rub of your choice

bacon (optional)


Baking in the oven!
Pre-heat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with foil and set aside. On the back side of the slab of ribs there is a membrane that needs to be removed. You will be able to distinguish the membrane because it looks like fat. I should have taken a picture of this, but I forgot. Oops. I normally take a sharp knife and cut down the center of the back of the slab. I then will peel the membrane off in sections. Next, rinse off the slap of ribs and pat them dry with a paper towel. I then rub my vinegar on to the front and back of the ribs. Next, I use my liquid smoke on the ribs, How much? Until covered. It all depends on the taste you want. More=taste like ribs were done on the grill. Less= just adds a little bit of flavor. After, rub rib rub on the ribs. Don't get too much or the rib rub becomes chunky when it cooks and does not cook well. I then wrap my slap of ribs in bacon. Because, everything is better with bacon, right? Bake for an hour and a half. Remove from oven, take bacon off, and add a layer of bbq sauce. Return to oven for 20 minutes. ENJOY!

*These can be done on the grill. Follow the directions to remove membrane from above. Then, place in a stock pot of water with 1/2 cup of vinegar. Bring to a boil and boil for 30 minutes. Remove from stock pot, add seasoning, liquid smoke, and bacon. Place on frill for an hour. Add bbq sauce and cook for another 10 minutes. YUM! ((Thanks to Jenni B for helping me figure out this method!))
