    Roasted Chickpeas 
I followed this simple recipe and made a delicious snack. I can say that the use of parchment paper is very important. A few of the chickpeas rolled off the parchment paper and were burned to a crisp. It took me all of 45 minutes to get the proper crispness, so pay close attention around the 40 minute mark. The chickpeas were delicious and had the entire house smelling like a roasted chicken. My kids were indifferent but I doubled the recipe and still scarfed these bad boys down in about two days. I couldn’t walk through the kitchen without grabbing a handful.
Enjoy.

    Bacon Update of the Week: Bacon Turtles?

    If you can make turtles out of chocolate, caramel, and nuts why not bacon, hot dogs, and ground beef. I’ll bet you can eat just one.

    Doritos Fried Chicken
So last week my wife decided to try a wheat-free diet in an effort to clear up a few lingering health issues and shed a few pounds in the process. She tore through the book Wheat Belly in much the same way that I dispatch with a loaf of Italian bread. As she relayed some of the main points of the book to me I figured I’d give the wheat-free thing a try as well. What’s the harm? It’s only three weeks and at the very least I may change some of my poor eating habits and lose some of the extra 12 pounds I’ve been carrying around since tearing my Achilles tendon last year. 
I must say that going wheat-free has generally been easier than I anticipated. It’s been over a week and my only cheat to this point was taking a bite of my daughter’s pizza at my nieces’ birthday party last weekend. The pizza was delicious but I quickly returned to the carrot sticks and hummus without any further transgressions. 
The one thing that I was craving was Doritos. I just sort of assumed that Doritos, as nearly all junk foods contain some level of wheat, were off limits. I did a quick search on the Doritos web site and was pleased to discover that the recipe was changed a few years back and that wheat has been removed from the ingredients list for Nacho Cheese Doritos (other flavor varieties still contain wheat). The next day when my wife voiced her desire to devour copious amounts of fried chicken, and her obvious disappointment that such an endeavor would violate her wheat-free pledge, I was struck with a rare moment of genius: Doritos Fried Chicken!
Well, why the hell not?
The next day I came home from work to find my lovely bride at the stove laboring over a pan of…you guessed it, Doritos Fried Chicken.
She crumbled the Doritos into a bag (basically creating Doritos flour), dredged the chicken in egg, and then tossed it into the bag of delicious crumbles. In an instant she created a new family favorite recipe and solidified her standing as Wife of the Year.
Doritos Fried Chicken may not be the healthiest wheat-free recipe you’ll read this week but it will be the most delicious.

No idea if this is true, but if it means more bacon I’m all for it.

    Maple Walnut Pizzelles
My wife and I started putting together our list of cookies that we wanted to bake for Christmas last week. My aunt used to make Pizzelles every year around the holidays so the cookies hold a special place in my heart, and belly, this time of year. Naturally they made the list.
I found a recipe for maple walnut pizzelles on Food.com, a bit different than the standard anise seed pizzelles. Basically you can use any standard pizzelle recipe and just replace the anise seeds with maple syrup. I added about 1 1/2 cups of chopped walnuts and took to the waffle press. The recipe says it yields 16-20 cookies, but I doubled the ingredients and ended up with over 70 pizzelles, and a sore neck after over an hour of manual cookie pressing.
The cookies were delicious and the yield was prodigious as you can see from my leaning tower of pizzelles above.

    Crock Pot Pumpkin Bread
I’ve never been much of a baker but the bread baking mood does strike me from time to time. A few weeks back I drew some late night inspiration from a can of pumpkin and a crock pot. I took to Pinterest and found a recipe for pumpkin bread made entirely in the crock pot. It was as easy as it was delicious. 
Here is a link to the recipe I found on CDLlife.com.
The recipe was easy to follow and the paper towels are key. I assumed the bread would be soggy but the paper towels really do the trick so don’t skimp. I cooked the bread for approximately 3 hours and it was perfect but my crock pot has a tendency to run kind of hot. The cooking time could vary so just be careful. 
I didn’t start baking until around 11 pm on a Saturday night so this served as a terrific Sunday morning breakfast surprise for my Wife and kids. We downed half the loaf for breakfast and damn near the rest of it after dinner.

    Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pumpkin Seeds
My kids love roasted pumpkins seeds. In fact, I think they were as excited by the prospect of eat pumpkin seeds as they were by the actual pumpkin carving last week. I usually toss the seeds in olive oil and coat them with a combination of sea salt and paprika before roasting them for about 40 minutes. This Halloween my Wife requested something sweeter. I split the seeds into two batches, put the salty seeds in the oven, and went to Google to find a suitable sweet pumpkin seed recipe.
I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. I tossed the seeds in melted butter and topped them with a mixture of sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and a bit of salt then laid them out on a baking sheet. The total cook time was closer to 35-40 minutes than the 1 hour suggested in the recipe. I was afraid they would burn with all of that sugar. Every 10 to 12 minutes I took the seeds out and topped them with another round of sugar and brown sugar.
These were huge hit and easy to make, and I think my Wife enjoyed these more than the kids.

    Apricot Butter Pancakes with Granola Topping
Honestly I didn’t even know that apricot butter was a thing until my wife purchased it a few weeks ago to use in an Easter dinner recipe. I was intrigued, and as I’m often wont to do, said “I’m gonna put that in pancakes!” 
Well, I did just that on Wednesday night and they were awesome. Here’s the rundown of the recipe.
2 cups flour
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1/2 cup Splenda
2 tablespoons of butter
1 egg
4 tablespoons of apricot butter
After putting together the batter I had the idea to crumble some granola on top of each pancake. I didn’t have any loose granola so I bashed a Nature Valley Oats & Honey bar into submission.
The kids scarfed them up and were really amused by the granola crumble. I get the feeling they’ll want granola crumbled on top of just about everything from now on.
