Stuffed Peppers

Recently we made these stuffed peppers! They were so good and I'm not normally a pepper person.
We were very excited to try these and we weren't let down.
     First we pre-heated our over to 350. In the recipe it says to grease the sheet with coconut oil, but we didn't have any so we used tin foil. Tin foil worked just as good.
    Next, we used mini peppers in stead of bell peppers so they could be more bite size snacks. I cut them in half  to make little boats. Also we spooned out the inside seeds.

Then, We mixed together the meat of choice (we used Italian Sausage),  and eggs. In a food processor we blended the kale, onion, and garlic. Then we added the two mixtures together and this is what it looked like. 
My co-chef and I spooned the meat mixture in to the mini peppers.

They were in the oven for 40 minutes. We kept them in the same amount of time the regular peppers to make sure the meat was fully cooked. 5 minutes before we took them out of the even we put some mozzarella on them and put them back in, 

Lastly we put some on little plates to see what our students and staff thought.

Ms.Ochoa: "This is healthy and delicious! Can i have the recipe?"
Ms.Ambrosious: "you girls are amazing, These are really good"
Ms.Vetch:"So good! you guys make my day with your yummy food!"

      A few weeks ago we made some goulash! This is one of my favorite meals and something Iv'e grown up eating. I would describe this as a hot-dish and spaghetti mixed together.
      First we browned the beef. We then added the onions and garlic; Then added water, spices, canned diced tomatos. Ketchup was a good add on so we added a few squirts of that instead of canned tomato sauce. Next we just let that boil for about 15 min.
      After letting that cook we added the pasta and cooked that till it was tender.

                                                              Here's the finished product!

WAH-LA! Now its done. we served this to our staff and students and this is what they thought:
  Mr. Hanson-"I love goulash! I love you guys!"
  Joe - "This is really great, Just enough spice"
  Mrs. Ochoa-"You girls make my day, this is delicious"

I think that the goulash was a hit! although the presentation wasn't the best. You can make a hot-dish look too presentable.

Stuffed Strawberries

 So after spring break we got back into the grove of things, and made some beautiful stuffed strawberries! The recipe is super easy.  All we did was put 2 8oz. packages of cream cheese, a little almond extract and a half cup powdered sugar in the mixer a beat it till it was light and fluffy. After that we put it in a pastry bag!
At this point it looked like a bag of frosting, but looks can be deceiving!

After that we put a deep X-cut in the top strawberries and cut off the stem/base.
Then we put the tip of the pastry bag as deep as we could in the X and pushed the filling out.

At first we weren't very good, the frosting was very thick, cold and was hard to push out.

After all of that we put it on a tray to see what our students and staff had to say

Kenzie S. "There really good! They could use a bit of powdered sugar"
Ms. Teigland "Oh my gosh, Yummy"
Mr. Hanson"You guys know how much I love you? Right" While shoving 5 strawberries in his mouth

Cranberry Spinach Salad

 Alright so this week we made a delicious salad! I'm usually not one to go for a salad at a restaurant, but this is soo good. It only took us about 10 minutes. The hardest part of the recipe is just finding the ingredients (some you might not have around the house). Other than that is was super easy. We did this all in one day.
First we just toasted the almonds in a little butter.It smelled so good!  Then mixed everything in a bowl and topped it with the almonds. The dressing was a yummy homemade vinaigrette. Lastly we had some students and staff tell us what they think.
Maria Becker-"It nothing I've ever tasted before!"
Teigland-"It was so good, maybe a little too much dressing, but I loved the flavors!"
Ambrosius-"It was really good girls, I just printed the recipe for my self"

Homemade Pizza

Soooooo. This week we had the opportunity to make a pizza! Pizza lands in the top 3  of my favorite foods so this was a good week for me.
DAY 1: We made the pizza dough. We mixed together all the ingredients. Next we put it in the fridge overnight.  This only took us about 10 minutes.
DAY2: This day we got to spread out the pizza dough on the pan and spread the sauce on the dough. We cut up the green bell peppers, tomatoes and onions. I usually aren't a fan of peppers but they complimented the pizza so well. After we put on the mozzarella, peppers, tomatoes, and onions. Finlay later that day we put it in the over at 425 for approx. 25 min. It smelled wonderfully and tasted even better!

The reaction from some of the teachers/students were as followed:
Prafke: "This is really good, way better then the frozen stuff I usually eat!"
Ambrosius: "wow girls that was great!"
Hanson: "you two and my favorite, pizza was great"

One of the best lunches I've eaten.  I will defiantly make this for my family.

   First we browned the Italian sausage in the stock pot. Next we added the diced carrots, tomatoes, and broth. Also salt and pepper to season.  Next we added the beans and zucchini. We cooked it all in the pot until everything was tender. Lastly we added the spinach and let it sit for 5 min. After that it looked like this.

Also we made garlic bread, We used french bread and just some garlic bread spread.

We put them in some little cups and had some teachers taste it.
When some of our teachers tried it this is what they said:

Luethner "It had amazing flavor"
Rosh "Ohh., wow that's really good! I love the flavor"
Ambrosius "A+ for you guys!"

All and all it was another hit for us in the kitchen :)

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

     For our third lab we decided to make a dessert.  After lots of online research we wanted to make some red velvet cookies.

The first step we just mixed the dry ingredients.  Then we mixed the butter in the mixer for one minute. We found out this step is very important. To the butter we added the rest of the ingredients. Lastly we mixed the dry stuff with everything else. We had to do this in two days because we have to chill in in cerain wrap. You only have to chill it for an hour but we did it overnight because of our classes. Now for the fun part we rolled them into balls and baked them! After they were out of the over we sprinkled them with some powdered sugar and a few extra white chocolate chips and WA-LAH.  When we asked teachers and staff what they though they were all very impressed.

1)Teigland said "very soft and chewy!"
2)Schmity said "These are awesome"
3)Hanson said "Do you have anymore?!"

All and all I think our cookies were a big hit!  We will for sure make these again soon.

Southeren Style Deviled Eggs

For my first recipe we made southern style deviled eggs. We thought it would be a good starting recipe because its pretty simple. I took pictures along the way so you could see how we made these marvelous eggs. :)   When we were done we got some quotes from the staff in our high school. 

Mr.Engen said "Great Presentation"
Also Mrs.Cassano Exclaimed "You can make deviled eggs for me any time!" 

Here's how the magic happened-
First we took our hard boiled eggs and halved them, and took out the yolk.

We then mashed up the yolks and added the relish, mayonnaise, mustard and a dash salt and pepper.

Next step is to simply put the yolk mixture into the egg whites.

Before Garnish...

AFTER GARNISH! For the garnish we added paprika and sliced sweet pickles.We were unfortunately out of pimentos.

all and all we loved the deviled eggs and so did everyone who tried them :)
