Low Carb Parmesan and Caraway Crackers Recipe

Who else is a cheese lover!? I certainly am. Making your own crackers (or cracker chips) is an easy recipe. Double or triple the recipe for a great TV snack, game day snack, or party food. This is yummy, cheesy goodness.

Notes:

• Recipes do not get any easier than this. These are great little snack crackers for cheese lovers or low carb dieters.

• A 3.5oz of chunk Parmesan cheese should be equal to one cup of shredded Parmesan cheese. I listed this as 4 servings (four (4) chips) for ease of distribution (this recipe should make 16 low carb crackers), but if the actual serving is one ounce of cheese, then the actual low carb Parmesan and caraway crackers serving is 4.5 chips. I cannot imagine people would break a chip in half to get the full serving. If you are like me you are more likely to eat eight chips to make up for that missing half chip.

• I make something very similar to this with mozzarella cheese. You can try basil flakes, red pepper flakes, or parsley flakes for the herb. Mozzarella chips will be much softer, however, so check on the cook time if you try and substitute cheeses. You may have to adjust cooking time and walk the fine line between overdone and chip-like (this note is if you choose to try a different cheese).

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

grapevine wreath with dried lavender


Encourage peace and relaxation in your home by making and using this scented lavender wreath. Easy to make, this simple lavender grapevine wreath comes together in about 15 minutes.

Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath DIY

Set yourself up for summertime bliss by making this scented lavender wreath! This wreath may be made with imitation flowers, but using real lavender essential oil will make this wreath appear much more realistic, and will leave your home smelling great! Lavender oil is said to have soothing, relaxing properties which we could all use a little more of.

Although humans love the smell of lavender, bugs and insects do not like lavender oil. That makes this a wonderful wreath to use around doorways to discourage mosquitos and other pests from traveling into your house.

Notes:

• This is a 15 minute craft. It does not get much more simple than this!

• This wreath was made using floral lavender as opposed to dried lavender. You certainly can use dried lavender, but remember that doors open and close so that dried lavender will shed and drop of the spike.

• No ribbon is used in this craft. If you would like to add ribbon, consider a burlap, lavender, or purple 1½” = 2″ ribbon wrapped around the wreath. You can add a matching bow if you like!

• Remember that all craft projects are just a starting point. Add your own embellishments to make the DIY craft yours!

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Recipe

open ham and cheese Stromboli on a wood cutting board


This delicious, easy to make, ham and cheese Stromboli is a great lunch, dinner, or party food. This can be cut into sandwich size portions for a few people, or cut into inch slices as a party food to help feed a crowd.

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Recipe

A Stromboli is an American-Italian sandwich-y-type food invention. While similar to a calzone (you could use this filling to make calzones too), the shape is totally different. Stromboli is the long-shaped one.

Notes:

• If you do not like or are allergic to, sesame seeds, simply omit them from the recipe.

• Mozzarella is the “traditional” cheese used in a Stromboli. If you prefer some other melting cheese, feel free to substitute.

• You can use any prepared pizza dough you like, as long as it is fresh (defrosted), or make your own!

• The ham can be leftovers from cooked dinner ham, or luncheon meat from the deli!

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Ingredients:

• 13 oz Pizza Dough (canned pizza dough crust is 13.8oz, which is fine)
• 1 cup Ham, diced
• 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
• 2 TBSP Onion, diced
• 1 Egg
• 2 TBSP Sesame Seeds
• Salt, to taste
• Pepper, to taste

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Mise en Place:

• Knife
• Cutting Board
Measuring Cup

Ham and Cheese Stromboli Directions:

• Preheat oven to 375°F.
• Rollout the pizza dough onto a baking sheet. Fix any wrinkles or tears by squeezing the dough together. You may need a dab of water to get it to stick closed.
• Lay the ham out evenly on the dough, in the center, forming a line, staying approximately 1 inch from the edges of the dough.
• Sprinkle the onion and cheese over the ham.
• Working from the bottom, fold the bottom portion of the dough up approximately ¾ of the way to the top so that it covers the ingredients. Fold the sides in, and then roll the Stromboli over the rest of the way to the top so that it sits seam down. With a sharp knife, cut 3 – 4 slits in the top of the dough to allow steam to escape while baking.
• Beat the egg in a small bowl and with a pastry brush, brush the egg all over the top of the Stromboli.
• Sprinkle the salt, pepper and sesame seeds over the top so that it sticks in the egg wash.
