I tried a recipe for cooked cabbage and I have tried brussel sprouts and I just wasn't too big of a fan but I wanted to try to eat some more cabbage in my diet so I decided trying coleslaw sounded like a good idea especially because Dustin likes coleslaw too. This recipe is supposed to be a KFC imitation but it seemed a little bit more juicy. Which is good because then you can just toss the coleslaw and not have the sauce be too thick and globby... so if you like that in a coleslaw then try this one!

KFC Coleslaw
8 cups finely diced cabbage (about 1 head) 
1/4 cup diced carrot 
2 tablespoons minced onions 
1/3 cup granulated sugar 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper 
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise 
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar 
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Finely slice/dice cabbage and carrots. Sit the cabbage on its side so you can finely slice it and then just grate the carrots. Or you could use a food processor to do it all. Then pour the cabbage mixture and stir in the minced onions. In a separate bowl blend together the rest of the ingredients until smooth to make the sauce. Pour the sauce over the cabbage mixture and mix thoroughly. Cover the bowl and let it refrigerate several hours or overnight. Yummm...

Next recipe will be a Buttermilk Caramel Sauce that I made that is SO delicious... it is tasty on ice cream or waffles/french toast. I made it I just need to take a picture and get it posted so stay tune!

Red Pepper Chicken Crepes

I just made this recipe with what ingredients I had in my kitchen so feel free to add whatever sounds good to you. Savory crepes are simple and delicious, next time I think I will try making them with chicken and broccoli. It is a nice recipe to just make with what you have on hand. Enjoy! :)

Chicken Crepes
2 chicken breasts, diced
1/3 onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
Splash of oil
a couple shakes of garlic salt
a couple shakes of pepper
1 can of Cream of Chicken soup
1 cup or so of shredded cheese
One batch of the *Basic Crepes recipe*
I added some chopped avocado on top for a little garnish touch
In a medium skillet with a lid I start warming some olive oil. Then add the diced onion and red pepper and let it cook for about 2 minutes. Then add the chicken, garlic salt, and pepper and give it a stir. Put the lid on and let it steam until the chicken is cooked all the way through. Then add the chicken soup and let it warm. Then put a couple spoonfuls of filling inside the middle of each crepe and sprinkle a pinch of cheese on top. Then roll up the crepe and do so with as many crepes as you want to make. *I made 7 big crepes with this recipe.* Then when all the crepes are filled put them in the oven at 300 degrees until the cheese is melted on top which takes about 7-10 minutes. Yummm...
