Slow Cooker Osso Buco

Slow Cooker Osso Buco

I had some grass fed beef shanks in the freezer that I wasn’t sure what to do with, when I found a slow cooker Osso Buco recipe on the Cuisinart site. Perfect! I adapted it to beef, organic and instead of using canned tomatos used some of my San Marzano’s that I had frozen this summer. Just chopped them and added in.

It was delicious and we had enough for a few dinners. First we served it over baked Spaghetti Squash and when we ran out of squash ate it with fresh salad and sauerkraut. It takes a little prep work as you start but the flavors are worth it. So easy to make in the slow cooker! And would be wonderful for company too.

This recipe was for my six quart cooker. Enjoy!

GMO’s in the News

Some interesting articles in the news this month.

The first, which I am very happy about, is that the Federation of German Scientists Whistleblower Award was given to Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini. Monsanto and the other biotech companies smeared him after his rat study demonstrated the toxic effects of Roundup. Glad to see he’s getting supported from the European scientific community.

Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini has been honoured with the 2015 Whistleblower Award by the Federation of German Scientists (VDW) and the German Section of the International Association of Lawyers Against Nuclear Arms (“IALANA”).

I actually saw a version of this as a video on Facebook. It looked good and as I had pesto in the freezer and fresh tomatoes that needed using, I tried it and it’s great! Very easy to make and it was a hit.

Four Organic Chicken Breasts or Six Organic Chicken thighs – boneless and skinless

Organic pesto – if you don’t have any blend basil, almonds or walnuts, garlic, salt, Parmesan cheese and a bit of olive oil – and it’s pesto

Eggnog Ice Cream

 

My son had to have a tooth pulled and was on soft foods for a week or so. One of his favorite things was for me to make him an eggnog in the blender – 2 cups of fresh milk, 2 eggs, a few drops of stevia, a little vanilla and a bit of nutmeg – so good and it kept him very nourished while he healed.

Our chickens have been laying eggs like crazy this spring so I was looking for some good recipes. I have to say, this is the best quiche recipe I’ve ever had and the family agrees. This is my version from the excellent cookbook, Low-Carbing Among Friends, Vol 1 – link below. It’s full of great low carb, gluten free and Keto recipes and I use it all the time.

Hazelnut Blackberry Jam Muffins

Hazelnut Muffins 2

I had some muffins similar to these at our local health food store. They were so good that I was determined to replicate them. I’ve had a bag of hazelnut meal in my freezer for a year and didn’t know what to do with it. I also had some homemade sugarless blackberry jam that needed using up.

This recipe was a winner!
