Apples!

Ok, this recipe may seem totally lame, but it’s REALLY good!

I swear I’m not trying to get out of a recipe post.  It’s just easy.

The pic is weird..I know, but it was creative.

Take an apple, any kind

Slice in half and core

Put some butter on it

Put some brown sugar on it

Put some cinnamon and fresh nutmeg on it (if you have fresh nutmeg, I don’t..just made that up)

Repeat with other half

Stick the apple halves in the microwave for about 30 seconds, check the apple a few times.

It will come out tasting like apple pie.

I know, bake it if microwaving an apple sounds sketchy, but in a hurry this tastes great.  I won’t say it’s extremely good for you..but hey..it’s not deep fried..wait..wait a minute, just kidding.Image

Velvet and Heaven

Velvet Heaven in my mouth.  I don’t know why, but that’s what came to mind when I tasted this last night.  I made a roasted tomato and garlic butter spread and tried it on baked salmon (baked with butter, sea salt, and dill) and on some toasted slices of French bread.

The original recipe is here:
http://www.marksdailyapple.com/tomato-garlic-butter/#axzz2BI0rwV9o
I’ll go into more detail about that website when I post the intro about my modified “Primal” diet.

I altered the recipe though, since I had only 10 ounces of cherry tomatoes instead of 16 ounces.  So here is my altered recipe:

10 oz. organic cherry tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 oz. Kerry Gold butter, room temperature
1/8 tsp. sea salt

1.  Preheat oven to 400F.
2.  Melt 2 tbsp. of the butter, and then mix with tomatoes and garlic in a 9×13 glass Pyrex.
3.  Roast mixture in oven for approximately 40 minutes, stirring often, or until tomatoes are very soft.
4.  Let cool.
5.  Blend tomato mixture and 1/8 tsp. sea salt (or to taste) in a food processor until smooth.
6.  Cut remaining butter into chunks.  Adding chunks a few at a time, process with tomato mixture until smooth.
7.  Spread on whatever you want and enjoy!  If it seems too liquidy or too soft, just throw it in the fridge for a bit.

P.S.  This morning for breakfast, I slathered this on some leftover brown rice, salmon, and roasted sweet potatoes.   Delicious tomatoey, garlicky, buttery goodness!
