Maple Syrup Baked Chickpeas

11 Dec

Susan T's Kitchen

Chickpeas, garbanzo beans, Chi Chi Beans no matter what you call them, they are all the same bean!  Chickpeas have superior nutritional value loaded with calcium and protein, so when it comes to something healthy to snack on I like to whip up a batch of these yummy beans that are  baked in maple syrup with cinnamon to satisfy my sweat tooth.  Even the kiddies will like them!

Vegetarian Loco Moco

Hawaiian Treat

Aloha! When I was in the Army my husband and I were stationed in Hawaii. We loved eating the local foods and we would go out every weekend for breakfast before heading to the beach on the Island of Oahu. My husband would have the Loco Moco,  a  Hawaiian style dish, which is a  hamburger patty,  fried egg, and brown gravy on a bed of rice. There are many variations, but this version is the most popular. I came up with my own version of the Loco Moco which is a vegetarian patty topped with a fried egg and vegetarian brown gravy on a bed of  rice. Oh this is so Ono!  Mahalo!

  • 2 Vegetarian Hamburger Patties
  • 1 can vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • soy sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • hot cooked white or brown rice

Rice:  Ahead of time cook rice according to package directions either stove top or in a rice cooker.  I like using a rice cooker your rice…

Raised Beds and Uninvited Guests!

14 Jan

We installed some raised beds for gardening.  However the garden attracted some uninvited guests who came to dinner and ate all the carrot tops, broccoli, lettuce and radishes. So we had to come up with something to keep out the unwanted guests without harming them.  After all, they are cute and I love watching them play in the back yard.  But, again they are quite sneaky waiting and watching for when I turn my back!   They also like Germaniums.  Who knew!

This is what we came up with.  All I have to do is lift it to get at my plants!  Mr. Squirrel has been trying his hardest to figure out how to get into the garden!
