Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Green Peppers Recipe

Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Green Peppers Recipe

I love Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches but I don’t love all the carbs that come with the bread. I had seen recipes similar to the one I have created and I thought I would give it a try only instead of baking my Philly Cheesesteak stuffed green peppers in the oven I decided to cook them on the grill.

Onion Rings on the Grill

Easy Onion Rings on the Grill

Onion rings on the grill, say what? That’s right, you can cook fried onion rings on the grill. They are crispy and crunchy and it is so easy you will never want cook them in a deep fryer or oven again. When the summer heat hits in the south, no one wants to cook in the oven. I also no longer own a deep fryer since I decided to live a healthier lifestyle. So I was trying to decide what to have as a side with our mahi-mahi burgers and my son asked for onion rings. I thought well why not try them on the grill. And much to my delight it worked.

Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe

This is my Spaghetti Sauce Recipe. It is based on my mom’s “Amazing Gravy” recipe. She grew up in Philly and her home was right outside of little Italy so she must have learned how to cook from there. This Spaghetti Sauce Recipe smells so good I have thought about bottling the smell and selling it.

I went to sam’s club and bought all of the items above with exception of the basil. I used all of it. I made two huge pots of my Easy Spaghetti Sauce Recipe because I put it in ziplock bags and I freeze it to be used later. I also add some oregano by sight and 2 cloves of fresh garlic one for each pot. And since my husband can’t eat food with gluten, I decided to also make a pressure cooker version.

The secret to the my Gluten Free Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce Recipe is the order in which I do things and the quality of the ingredients. I find that is important to buy in bulk and cook ahead to save time and money. I use this sauce for tons of recipes.

Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe

Lately because of all the snow my little one has been home with me more than normal. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with that little girl, but trying to find something for her to eat for lunch besides a sandwich can prove difficult when I’m still trying to get some work done. Recently our family has started doing Weight Watchers so I wanted to make sure I could make something for lunch that we would both enjoy, but not undo our day. Mac and Cheese is my daughters favorite thing to have no matter the time of day so I went in search of a Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe and found one that was easy to make and tastes exactly like “normal” Mac and Cheese. Your kids will love it and at only 4 Weight Watchers Points you will too! You can also make some Weight Watchers Berry Cobbler Cake to serve as a treat.

And since I’m loving my pressure cooker these days, I decided to make my Power Pressure Cooker XL version of my Weight Watchers Mac and Cheese Recipe. The result is amazing! This Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese Recipe is my new comfort food. The macaroni is perfectly cooked and is so flavorful.
