HALLOWEEN TREATS (FRANKENPOP & ONE EYE WILLY)

DIRECTIONS FOR FRANKENPOPS: When you slice the banana, cut it in 4s. Use the straight edged cuts for Frank. He will thank you later for it. You will yield 2 per banana (save the ends for Willy). Put the stick into the banana and freeze for a good 20 minutes. While the bananas are freezing, take the almond slice and make a scar pattern on it using the edible writing pen. Slice the fig in 3 pieces, slicing across the narrowest part of the fruit. You can use the top and bottom parts for 2 different Franks. Gently scoop out the fig guts and with your fingers, again gently stretch out the fig so it will fit on top of the banana slice. Melt vegan white chocolate chips and drop coloring to get the green hue you want. My chocolate ended up being too watery (I used a little rice milk to melt it) and so it didn’t really stick. I kinda like how it worked out, however. Do as you please! Take bananas out of the freezer and dip into chocolate. Work fast because the choco gets difficult to work with as it cools. Place eyes, scar, sunflower seed…

Super Spicy Crockpot Chorizo Chili

Super Spicy Crockpot Chorizo Chili Ingredients 1 pound of grass fed beef 2 fresh chorizo sausage links, casings removed (about 1/2 pound) 1 yellow onion, diced 1 teaspoon of minced garlic 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped (omit if you want the chili less spicy) 1 15 oz. can of tomato sauce 1 can of rotel, spicy was used but you can limit heat by using mild 1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes 2 Tablespoons of chili powder 1 Tablespoon of cumin Salt and pepper to taste avocado, red onion, and cilantro optional for garnish Directions: 1. In a medium skillet brown off beef and chorizo. 2. Drain and toss into a crock pot 3.  In the same skillet add 1 tsp of fat and cook the onions and garlic just until the onion get a bit of color. You can skip this step if you like and just throw it into the crock pot. I just like giving the onions a bit of color before putting them in the crock pot. 4.  Add remaining ingredients, stir together, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4-6. 5.  Garnish with diced avocado, minced red onion, and cilantro

Crock Pot: Mocha-Rubbed Pot Roast

Mocha-Rubbed Pot Roast - In the Crock Pot Ingredients:  For the mocha rub (you will have extra): 2 Tablespoons finely ground coffee beans 2 Tablespoons smoked paprika 1 Tablespoon black pepper 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder 1 teaspoon Aleppo pepper (or sweet paprika) 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon salt For the roast: 2 lb. beef roast (any kind…I used grass-fed chuck) 1 cup brewed coffee (I used Chameleon Cold-Brew) 1 cup beef broth 1/2 an onion, chopped 6 dried figs, chopped 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar Directions:  Prepare the mocha rub by mixing together the finely ground coffee, smoked paprika, black pepper, cocoa powder, Aleppo pepper (sub: sweet paprika), chili powder, ground ginger and salt in a small bowl. You won’t use the entire batch if you’re making a 2 lb. roast. It stores well in an airtight container. Pat the beef roast dry with a paper towel. Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of the mocha rub mixture over the roast and rub it in well with your hands – my preferred method. Or, place the roast and 3-4 tablespoons of mocha rub in a plastic ziplock bag and shake until it’s evenly coated.  Combine the brewed coffee, beef broth,…
