Taco Seasoning

I can eat tacos on any day of the week because they are just so yummy, simple to make and quick. Since I've started making my own taco seasoning mix I've been making them at least once a week to get my fix but sometimes they can get a little messy.

I've seen recipes using egg rolls wraps quite a bit in the last couple of year that not necessarily have traditional egg roll filling that gave me the item for this. These are portable, less mess, can be eaten for lunch, dinner or just a snack. Also you can make ahead, freeze then bake them when you need or crave them.

Taco seasoning for one serving
1 Tablespoon+1 teaspoon Chili Powder
1 1/2 Teaspoons Ground Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika, can use Fancy Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper, optional
1/4 Teaspoon Mexican Oregano, can use regular Oregano
1/2 Teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper, fresh ground is best

Tools you'll need:
Pastry Brush
Parchment Paper
Two Cookie Sheets
Medium Bowl
Small Ice Cream Scooper or Tablespoon spoon

Recipe
2 lbs Ground Turkey Meat cooked, can use beef, pork or chicken or can us veggie subsitute
2 to 3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning, I used homemade but can use store bought
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons Water
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, can use Mozzarella or Monterey Jack
Egg Roll Wraps, should be located either in the fresh vegetables or by the tofu
Taco Sauce, optional

Egg Wash
1 Whole Egg
1 to 2 tablespoons Water

Brown meat until done. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water. Let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer meat into a medium size bowl and let the meat cool slightly,about 15 to 20 minutes, for easier handling.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees cover cookie sheets with Parchment Paper. Combine one whole egg and water, mix well and leave alone.
Set up a little station to make the taco egg rolls.
Place egg roll wraps diagonal or a diamond shape, add three tablespoons of meat then sprinkle on cheese. Dab water on the diagonal corners and bring those corners in. Lift bottom and roll. Overlap the top dabbing a little more water to seal it. Place on cookie sheet. Continue this technique until you have made your desire amount or run out of meat. (Here is a collage that may help more)
Before baking, brush on egg wash then bake for 15 minutes. If you would like to freeze just bake for 10 minutes to parbake. To bake from frozen, bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
Pour a little taco sauce on top if desired and enjoy.

Chubby Hubby Cookies

I was inspired to make these cookies from a famous ice cream from Vermont with the same name. The ice cream has vanilla malt ice cream with peanut butter and fudge covered pretzels with a fudge and peanut butter swirl, yum.
I've seen other recipes on the internet of recipes for truffles or bars with the name of the ice cream and would have either peanut butter or caramel but never had the malt in it.

Malt is used for beer in the brewing process. It is usually made from barley. It is a sweet and creamy flavor, you might know it from a candy called Whoppers, chocolate covered malted milk balls.
This is malted vanilla cookie with peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, crushed pretzels with a peanut butter and chocolate drizzle.

Tip:
The longer you chill the cookie dough the better and keep the cookie dough cold before baking.
Room temperature butter and eggs will mix better. For room temperature eggs, take out of the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes bef…

Doughnut Muffins

I for-one love doughnuts but they don't love me. Where I live we really don't have an amazing doughnut shop that's within a 20 mile radius and don't run out before I wake up (I normally wake up when a lot of doughnut shops close).
I've seen doughnut muffins around the internet and on my favorite cooking shows but I could never find them around so as usual I had to make them. Last month I went onto Amazon to do a little shopping for some cooking supplies like a new muffin pan and some other fun stuff. So I got a new muffin or cupcake pan that said it was King Size. When I saw the pan I didn't think it was going to be that big but when I received I was pleasantly surprised. (Click on the link below)
Wilton 6-Cup King Size Muffin Pan To me it didn't look that big until I received it. They do not joke around when they say its KING size. Its about twice the size of a regular muffin pan.

Slow Cooker Louisiana White Beans and Rice

I grew up eating this dish since I was born and raised in Louisiana. Typically you might hear of red beans and rice with Andouille sausage, which is traditionally eaten on Mondays using soaked red kidney beans, cooked with a ham hake, Creole seasonings, bay leafs, and sausage added in or topped servings over cooked rice. 
White beans are also called Great Northern Beans, not to be confused with  Navy Beans, they are bigger but smaller than Cannellini beans or White Kidney Beans.
Together its a complete protein, relatively cheap maybe $10 for a whole pot of beans, rice and sausage and can be GLUTEN-FREE. Also can last for multiple meals.
Please note I used a 7 quart Slow Cooker, so the cooking times might be different for each slow cooker.

Serving: 2 to 3 Meals

Recipe
White Beans Soak
2 pound package Dried Great Northern Beans
6 Bay Leaves
1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
5 to 6 Cups water

Go through the beans and take out any ones that look bad.
Line slower cooker with liners, add white beans…
