Shrimp Spaghetti

This is a simple make after a long day dish. It may look like scampi but the seasoning and the cheese gives it a totally different taste. It's delicious!  You can use large shrimp but if so you might want to cut them into pieces. I use the 'around 30 count' size but a smaller size would have been perfect.  See the full recipe by going to Martha's Recipe Cabinet

Cheddar Cheese Dog Biscuits

1 1/2 cups (240 grams) brown rice flour
1 1/2 cups (135 grams) oat flour
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cups shredded parmesan, or similar, cheese
1 egg
1 cup (250 ml) water or chicken broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C).  Combine all of the dry ingredients.  Stir in the wet ingredients until throughly combined.  Roll out small batches of the dough to about 3/8 of an inch thick.  Use cookie cutters to cut shapes.  Place cookies about a 1/2 inch apart (they will not spread very much) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or Silpat mats.  Bake for 25 to 27 minutes, until firm and the edges are golden brown.

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest and since I like to make my 4 legged baby first rate, quality treats, this was a must.  They come from a site called Bakingdom which is quite an enjoyable site to keep up with.  I do have to admit that I did do a taste test before giving one to my baby Jesse.  They are delicious!  Jesse loves them too!

Comments:  When I made my treats I didn't roll them out.  I pinched off and rolled into balls about the size of a small walnut.  These I pressed out thin onto my parchment paper.

Slow-Cooker Chuck Roast

I found a recipe on for Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs.  It looked so good and I couldn't wait to give it a try.  I had everything needed except the ribs so to the grocery store I went.  Well.... when I saw the price of Beef Short Ribs I started having doubts that this would be the dish for me.  Then I spotted the chuck roasts.  I decided to Think With My Taste Buds and couldn't see how it wouldn't work.  I replaced the ribs with chunks of chuck roast and it worked perfectly.  I did increase a couple of the ingredients giving them what I felt was a better balanced and I even omitted one ingredient due to my increase. 

Watch for my version of's Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs made with Chuck Steak in the upcoming cookbook Think With Your Taste Buds - Beef.  But remember to get your copy of Think With Your Taste Buds - Desserts while waiting on the Beef edition.  It comes in paperback as well as e-book so start your set today.
