Chocolate Caramel Surprise & 7 Layer Seasoned Bean Soup

Yesterday for my hubby's sweet tooth I made the Chocolate Caramel Surprise.  Here are directions for how to make this delicious dessert

I drizzled it with some chocolate syrup to make a beautifully plated treat!  YUM!

HERE is where you can get it!

Meanwhile all day I had the 7 Layer Seasoned Bean Soup cooking in the crock pot.  This was so good with dinner!  I have plenty left over for lunches and even froze additional portions for when my youngest comes to visit!  I thought I had made a blog for how to make this already but did not before. It is super easy! Will do a full blog for it next time.
Here is what you get!  A very nice large portion of each bean!
Here it is all ready to eat (I just added a little shredded cheese to the top)

What are you waiting for?

Baking Mama

I thought I'd share a picture of myself so you can see the actual person selling Gourmet Cupboard through my website Southern Belle Gourmet .  I am just a normal, middle aged mom who loves to make wonderful food at great prices that are easy to make!

My good friend Julie gave me a new apron, oven mitt, and dish towel (not pictured) for my birthday coming up in a few days.  I had fun all afternoon making and baking with products I sell at my website.

I made 5 minute fudgestrawberry/lemonade pie , and beer bread. It was a lot to make as I made little individual pies (using cupcake molds) for the pie and so it took a while. But it was fun and now we fudge for hubby and pie for me. The bread went great with my crock pot meatloaf too.

~ Honey Grilled Shrimp~

For dinner I made Honey Grilled Shrimp which was great with baked potatoes and the Beer Bread I made as well.
 What you need: 1 lb shrimp shelled, water and skewers.
In a large bowl, mix together the contents of large bag with 1/3 cut water. Add shrimp, toss to coat, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for an hour. I thought I took photos of the shrimp in the marinade but I guess I didn't.  Sorry..
Preheat grill to high heat. Thread shrimp onto skewers and discard marinade.
In a small bowl, stir together second package with 1/4 cup water.  
 Set aside for basting.
Lightly oil grill grate. Grill shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Baste occasionally with the honey-butter sauce while grilling. Shrimp can also be skillet grilled as well, and if so, do not use the skewers.  I grilled my shrimp in a cast iron skillet not the grill and they turned out fine!
After putting on our dinner plate, I drizzled more of the honey-butter sauce over top.  The shrimp with the beer bread and potatoes made for a really great dinner with very little effort!  Get some today! 

~Beer Bread~

Today I made an easy delicious Beer Bread to have with dinner as I was making Honey Grilled Shrimp too and wanted a fancier Sunday dinner.  This only required the bread mix and beer so I had all the ingredients.
 What you need:  Beer Bread mix, 12 oz can of beer or clear carbonated soda.  I used a 12 oz bottle of beer instead and it worked just fine!
 Instructions: Mix contents of package with 1 can (I used a bottle) of beer.
 Here it us all mixed up.
 Pour into greased9 x 5 loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
 Here it is fresh out of the oven.
It was so good, we had to try a couple of slices it smelled too good to wait for dinner. Get some today!

~ Diabetic Friendly Carrot Souffle ~

I've been wanting to try this and decided to make it to have with dinner.  Hubby loved it too! That's when I knew it is a keeper!
Ingredients: 1 pound of carrots, Carrot Souffle mix, 2 eggs and 1/4 cup melted butter.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 pound of chopped carrots and cook until tender.  (I myself just used enough water to cover the carrots, why use a ton of water that can just wash away some of the nutrients in the carrots?. This way I only had to drain less than a cup of water off).
Drain and mash. (Here I already added the butter too).
To the carrots add 1/4 cup melted butter ,2 eggs and contents of package. Mix well and transfer to a 1 quart casserole dish. (I transferred them into two one pint casserole dishes). Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
 Here's the finished Souffle. Pretty fancy looking huh?
Light, moist, delicious!  A nice side to impress guests with!
