Canola Garlic Oil Parmesan Pesto

Here’s your invite to our Sunday Dinner!  You are invited to our home for some food creations, ideas, and chat.  Continuing my pesto theme this gorgeous Sunday. All it’s all about my new fav! Canola Garlic Oil!

Canola Garlic Parmeson Pesto EK Sunday Dinners

For starters, it’s rather simple to make your own infused canola garlic oil.  In the vid below, I mention to gently crush some big garlic to release it’s properties that will infuse the canola oil.

I would use this on grilled shrimp  or grilled fish with a bit of butter.

Tune in next week with all these tasty pestos on a couple of dishes of the week!

Basil Pesto ala Presto

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner!  Format has sort of changed but concept is the same! Good Food and Good Gatherings at our home and with you! It must be PESTO month!

Basil Pesto ala Presto EK Sunday Dinners.png

Watch here how I make it with my wild Texas Size Bun! It’s hot in Texas & I love it!

This is a basic sauce I use over my grilled chicken. Cook chicken until done and drizzle some of my Basil Pesto ala Presto and heat thoroughly at the end of the chicken cooking. Should only take a couple of minutes. This is how I make my green chicken! Can also spread some on a sandwich or salad!

Jerk Pork Chops

Jerk Marinated Porkchops EK Sunday Dinners

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner!  You are always invited to have a seat at our table, chat, eat a meal, and have some coffee afterwards. Guess what today’s meal is?! Yep! Jerk Pork Chop with some easy store bought ingredients. The other white meat.

Let’s begin! Grab 2 pans. Once for the sauce and the other for the veggie mix.


I’ve provided the Memphis spice found at your local HEB if they have them in your town.  If not use this chosen spice to sprinkle on the pork chops, the marinade/dipping sauce and paired it with the perfect veggie mix.

Note: As for the Jerk Marinade, preferably purchase at your local grocery store. Not very many on the market unless you are very familiar with the company and shipping/refund policies.  You can also substitute a very zesty favorite BBQ sauce of your choice.

Remember to wait for that glossy shine in the oil to shine thru before tossing in your steak onto the hot pan. It doesn’t take long.  If the oil burns, it can change the taste of the entire meal so make sure and have all the prepping done. At this stage, you can also toss in a few red pepper flakes, if you like some heat to it. As the oil heats, the red pepper flakes will release it’s natural oils into the pan. Discard all of the remaining marinade.

Creamy Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

Creamy Cheesy Casserole EK Sunday Dinners

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner’s!  You are most welcome to take a visit and have a seat at our table for another incredible Sunday Dinner dish.  I remember my Mom always had the biggest meals on a Sunday. I’m talking about homemade from scratch meals.  Do I do that….hmmm…every now and then. But mostly I find taking some short cuts, pre-prepping, or take out is best for this busy Mom. I should really have a new title. MOM should stand for Multi Optimizer of Missions.  Sounds good to me. That will be another time as long as I can have my own cape! Another time! Another time!

Let’s get to gathering before we gather at the table. This is a great recipe to only make half or prepare it all and then freeze half before baking.

Common Cooking Mistakes

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner once again! I’m so elated to be sharing the blessings of FOOD even during recovery! Today it’s about common cooking mistakes which I have learned and failed at as well. I’m by no means a chef nor pretend to be. I’m a foodie! I love food. I love good food. Not any foodie pictures this time around. Another reason is because I’ve had surgery so I had to do the best and hopefully you guys and gals appreciate this busy mama who was under the knife. No pun intended, but what an awesome intro to my 1st common cooking mistakes! Got to have sense of humor to uplift my spirits . So here we go!

Common Cooking Mistakes Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners

Knives:

Knives are very much used in everyday family cooking,right?! So we need to have a properly sharpened knife. Make sure it fits your hand size and meat size. I have small hands so a 12″ or 13″  won’t work for me.  But for my husband, it’s perfect.  If you are cutting rather large pieces of meat, then yes use the larger knives. Relatively speaking a good 8″ knife is a great family knife and good controllability. Preferably stainless steel is best. Ceramic will chip if it hits a large bone.

Spices:

I’m being truthful here when I say, I have spices older than a 2 years old.  It’s time to toss them out.  Spices have a shelf life so don’t buy bulk size if you are only going to use a few times and store the rest.  I’ve done that and so have you. Let’s get to tossing them out NOW. Now the rule is this:  Fresh spices last about 4 years, ground spices 2 to 3 years, and dried herbs 1 to 3 years depending.  Stored spices over time lose their flavor and potency and those are the qualities we seek when cooking. I guess I have some pantry spice cleaning!

Resting Meat:

If you’re like me, I like to cook and eat right away.  So why must I have to wait longer to eat my dinner! Truth be told here, the reason we need to allow our freshly cooked meat choice rest is because the juices redistribute through all that fresh meat. The result is a juicer dinner in your mouth. Would you rather have juicy tasting meat or juices run all over the cutting board?  I choose juicy tasting meat.

Preheating to Fast:

Have you often had a dinner where you taste an abundant amount of burnt oils? I have!  This is how this goes and normally happens:  You get your pan, turn up the heat to a medium high, and pour in your oil.  You turn around to gather a few items from the pantry or fridge.  By the time you open up your items to get the dish started, the oil is bubbling up, turning colors, and beginning to smell differently.  And the beneficial antioxidants break down and form an unusual taste and possibly harmful compounds. So next time you pour in some oil, keep an eye on it and once it begins to shine, the oil is hot enough to begin your amazing dish. Another thing is the pan.  Cast Iron is the best overall and leaches at the least chemical into your food.  Yes it does have iron but generally speaking it’s accepted as safe.  Another great pan are the ceramic pans because they are glazed not coated such as them teflon pans. And of course stainless steel.

Learn How to Make A Tasty Zesty Sausage Dish

Welcome back again for another dinner recipe!  You’re Invited to our Sunday Dinner!

Zesty Sausage Dish Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (4)

Sunday’s are such a relaxing and beautiful day to slow it down and make an awesome dinner.  Some days I’m all about doing a 2 to 3 or 4 part dinner but then some days I need some quick go dinner’s.  And this one is easy.  I simply put it altogether with whatever ingredients I had on hand to avoid the grocery store and my taste buds conjured this meal.

Ingredients

1 1/2 Jalapeno Sausage Link sliced up to bite size (Can use any flavor of sausage.)

2 stalks of Green onion diced

A sliver of Green Pepper

3 dashes of Garlic and Onion Powder

12 oz. Zesty Italian Dressing

Garlic Pepper seasoning (For taste at the end. The one I buy is from H.E.B.)


Zesty Sausage Dish Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (2)

Step 1: Toss sausage slices into a medium heated pan and allow to begin to cook for about 3 minutes. With a slotted spoon move sausages around to ensure evenly cooking.

Then toss in the green onions and pepper slices and do a quick saute to release their flavors. Onions can also be added if so desired.

Add the dashes of Garlic and Onion Powder  at this point as well.


Zesty Sausage Dish Share the Flippin Fun Estela Kelley Sunday Dinners (3)

Step 2: Add the Zesty Italian and stir.  Allow this great tasting dressing to work its magic.  Heat thoroughly until it begin to bubble up.

Add the Garlic Pepper seasoning right at the end and stir.

And it’s ready to serve!
