Ingredients

  • 3-4 large brown potatoes (peeled and chopped). (See Note 1)

  • 1/2 Cup Goat Butter
  • 3 tbsp AP Flour
  • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
  • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings

  2. Add AP Flour. Use a low heat.
  3. Stir the flour and butter. Do not let it burn.
  4. Add some chicken broth is the mixture is too dry
  5. Add the onion and garlic. Mix.
  6. When the onion pieces are translucent, add chicken broth
  7. Add chopped potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 10ish minutes. See Note 3.
  8. Add seasonings. How much is up to you. It is all about the taste test!
  9. Add Broccoli. Simmer for 10 mins.
  10. Add 16ish ounces heavy whipping cream. Stir. Add more if you want the soup creamier.
  11. Add 16ish ounces cheddar cheese and the bacon chunks
  12. Stir the soup until the cheese melts
  13. Taste test. Add spices and/or more cheese as you desire.
  14. If you want the broth thicker, mix 1 tbsp AP flour with 1 cup water. Mix thoroughly so there are no lumps. Then slowly add the mixture to the soup stirring as you go. Continue to simmer the soup, and it will thicken.
  15. Serve with some sour cream on top

Note 1: Amounts listed above are estimates. If you want, you can add more or less broccoli and potatoes.

Note 2: Here is a list of alternative spices that will go well with the soup. Dried tarragon, Chopped Cilantro, Salt, Black Pepper. You could, also, add celery, carrots, and/or sliced mushrooms. If you like it spicy, you could use Tony Characere’s or Slap ya Mama cajun seasonings. Jacobsen Salt Company has some deliciously flavored salt that you might like.

Note 3: If you boil the potatoes for too long, the potatoes will get mushy. The goal is just to get them soft.

Valentine's Meal, Nonna Style!

  • Servings: 2
  • Difficulty: Several things are being cooked and prepped together. The most difficult part is timing everything to be ready at once. Each item is EASY to cook.
  • Print

Ingredients

  • Omaha Valentine’s Day Special (came with 2 steaks, 1 package large shrimp, 1 cheese cake and 2 hash browns servings) – (See Notes 1 & 5)
  • 2 Fresh Garlic Cloves (you will have to mince them or use already minced garlic).
  • 1/2 Cup Goat Butter
  • Lemon Juice
  • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
  • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
  • Dan Pastorini’s Texas Style Rub (Steaks Only)

  • See Note 2 for a few alternate seasonings suggestions

Directions

  1. Sprinkle Dan Pastorini’s Garlic & Herb seasonings & his Texas style Rub, and Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings on the steaks. (both sides).
  2. Heat a frying pan or grill – needs to be HOT to sear.
  3. Put 2 tbsp butter in frying pan or on a grill once it is hot.
  4. Immediately following the butter, put the steaks on top of the butter.
  5. Sear steak for 1.5 minutes, turn steak 45° and sear 1.5 minutes.
  6. Flip steak and repeat step 3 above.
  7. Place both steaks in a pre-heated oven (400°F) for 5ish minutes or until steak meets your desires (rare, medium-rare, well done…) (See Note 3)
  8. “Tent” the steaks (cover with aluminum foil) and let sit for 10ish minutes.
  9. In a different frying pan, add 1/4 cup butter and garlic.
  10. Melt butter and brown garlic over a medium heat (don’t forget to mince the garlic cloves first)
  11. Add peeled shrimp (See Note 4)
  12. Add Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings, Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings, and Jacobsen Garlic Salt.
  13. Sprinkle some lemon juice over the shrimp.
  14. Flip the shrimp once when they turn white.
  15. Shrimp will cook quickly. When it is white on both remove from heat. Shrimp tastes rubbery when over cooked.

Note 1: Omaha Valentine’s Day Special (came with the cheese cake and the hash browns). Just search the interwebs (internet) using “Omaha Steaks.”

Note 2: Here is a list of alternative spices for the steak and shrimp: Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasonings, Slap Your Mama Cajun Seasonings, Salt & Pepper, Lemon Salt (shrimp only), Lemon Pepper Seasonings (shrimp only), Garlic Salt (shrimp only), Capers (shrimp only). You could also marinate the steaks before cooking or serve with your favorite steak sauce, but that is for another recipe/video.

Note 3: Nonna didn’t pay as much attention to oven time as she did to the steak’s core temperature. She aimed for 130°F-140°F. She removed the steaks from the oven at 140°F and “tented” or covered with aluminum foil for 10 mins (because Nono said so 🙂 ).

Note 4: You can turn the burner up, but watch the shrimp carefully as they will cook fast.

Note 5: Follow the directions on the package for cooking the hash browns.

Chicken & Dumplings

When we first did this delicious southern comfort food we had just gotten a microphone and didn’t have lights. It is such an amazing dish that Editor General Aunt Winkie and I thought we should re- do it using all the awesome new skills and equipment we have acquired over the last year or so.

Written recipe is forthcoming (one would think Aunt Winkie would get this out on time!!!!)

Super Bowl Snackage: Better than Cocktail Weenies!

One last Super Bowl Snack Recommendation. This is a simple and quick recipe and makes for a great treat. Nonna made these boneless ribs in the Instant Pot.

This is a very basic recipe. As such there is not written recipe. The steps Nonna took are as follows:

1. Brown the ribs with an onion and garlic. You can brown them using the sauté feature in the instant pot. However, Nonna used a skillet on the stove top.
2. Season the ribs with your favorite spices. Nonna used Dan Pastorini’s Texas Style Rub and Garlic and Herb Seasoning and Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings. You can marinate the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce over night if you desire. Seasonings is really up to you in this recipe.
3. Place ribs in the instant pot (on a rack).
4. Add 1 cup beef broth and additional spices (optional). Nonna added some hot sauce.
5. Cook meat in your instant pot. Use meat stew setting. Nonna set time for 15 minutes and depressurized it. However, you should check your multi-cooker’s instruction for cooking times.
6. Cut ribs into bite size chunks and serve!

The intention was to put all three keto friendly party snacks in one video, but Editor General Aunt Winkie made an artistic decision to put these in three different videos. 

There are 3 videos to the Super Bowl Snack Series. 7 Layer Dip, Crab Dip, and Boneless Ribs!

Tuna Salad: Caught, Canned, and SERVED!

This tuna salad is DELICIOUS and goes well with everything! The recipe itself is keto, but can be served with bread. It would go well as stuffing for tomatoes or avocados.

What I mean is, you can easily swap out the tuna for left over turkey, chicken, or ham!

Asian Carp Cakes

This recipe is a favorite of Miss Mickey’s husband (remember Miss Mickey was the guest cook on the Plum Tart video). It is simply delicious. Nonna made a few minor changes. For instance, she substituted crab meat with Asian Carp. Asian Carp has a nice texture and a good taste (not fishy). The only problem is that the carp has a lot of bones. However, once you learn how to remove/grind the bones the fish is delicious. Check out how Nonna makes a delicious Asian Carp Cake!

Spaghetti & Meatballs

This sauce was passed down from Nonna’s Great Grandmother “Mama Tess,” who immigrated from Sciliy in 1903. In fact, several limbs of the family tree and Nonna’s children, also, make this sauce. Both among the family branches and within the 5th generation, there are very few recipe adaptations (and those aren’t worth mentioning!!!). Mama Tess’ living and cooking relatives, especially Nonna, hope you enjoy this as much as the family does!
