Coconut Biscuits, Stuffed Zucchini, Tacos #Lowcarb #Healthy #Lifestyle

FBDue to having the stomach flu all weekend, and not being completely recovered, I’m reverting back to the coconut flour biscuits just to make my life easier.

Coconut Flour Biscuits:

COCONUT FLOUR BISCUITS
These fluffy creations remind me of KFC biscuits. They can be sweetened and combined with fruit or served as Egg McMuffins. (pictured below)
Author: Kaitlyn Fabry
INGREDIENTS
  • ⅓ cup coconut flour (Higher altitudes may require more.)
  • 4 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • 4 organic eggs
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)
 *I added canadian bacon and shredded cheddar cheese this time around*
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients in bowl.
  3. Stir until blended. (Use hand mixer, or food processor if desired.)
  4. Allow to sit for 1-2 minutes to allow dough to expand and become cohesive.
  5. Form into “patties” and press onto baking stone or cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until done.

Stuffed Zucchini:

I had to get creative with this. The zucchini was given to me and of course No spaghetti sauce! But I did have everything in my pantry and garden to make my own:)

Here’s the Spaghetti sauce link:

Total Time: 3 hr 20 min

Yield:16 servings (I cut it in half and didn’t make the meatballs. Check link)

Ingredients

Gravy (sauce):
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped  – (I used 3)
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
2 (28-ounce) cans ground tomatoes- (I used one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes.)
3/4 (28-ounce) can water (from empty ground tomato can), or 21 ounces water – (I added water to consistency.)
1/4 teaspoon salt –(1/8 teaspoon.)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper- (1/8 teaspoon.)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

For the Gravy: In the skillet, heat the reserved oil, add the onion and garlic and saute for approximately 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook on medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Fill the empty tomato paste can full of water, add to the skillet, and cook for 1 minute, stirring, add the ground tomatoes and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Fill the empty ground tomato can 1/4 full of water and add to the saucepan, along with the tomato paste mixture from the skillet.  Add the salt, ground pepper, and parsley and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes, then cover and cook on low heat for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to prevent sticking and burning on bottom of pan.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
