Cooking Conversions Made Easy

As a Canadian in my late 40′s I cook easily in both standard and metric as far as cups, tbsp, mls, etc.  Once a recipe talks about gallons, pints, sticks of butter, etc, I’m lost and turning to google.  I’ve put the most common google searches and conversions into one table for myself a few years ago and decided to pretty it up to share it.

Meatball Sub Butternut Squash

WOWSERS!

I had meatball mix & marinara left over from last night’s Spaghetti & Mrs C’s Meatballs. Since we’re eating Gluten Free I stuffed my sub filling into a squash instead.

Squash 2

Cut your Butternut squash in half length wise, scoop out seeds. Place in lg steamer and cook 13-15 minutes (until a fork can just pierce it). Drizzle with olive oil and coat with Tuxedo Pepper and Chili Garlic Salt. Place in 450 oven until roasted (20mins?).

Squash 1

Meanwhile, saute your celery and cabbage in a touch of olive oil, keeping them soft and moist (don’t overcook or dry out), remove from pan. Fry your meatball mix, drain off fat if required. Mix your cooked veg, your beef and your yellow peppers.

Scoop filling into your squash. Drizzle with Marinara. Top with Red Onions, Cheddar and grind on some salt and pepper. Pop back into your oven at 400 for 10 mins.

Kid’s Fav Good Food Real Results Meal

This is my kids favorite Good Food Real Results weekday dinner!

Cut your 1lb pork loin into thin slices (1/4-1/2 inch) and pound until
tenderized and half the thickness.

Coat them with your fav Epicure salts and Peppers.  I used Chili Garlic and Tuxedo.

Quickly flash fry a couple mins on each side – they’ll cook quickly because they’re so thin,
you’re really just browning and cooking to your desired doneness.

For sides we enjoyed: Steamed Broccoli (PERFECT in 2 mins in the steamer)
