This is a recipe I made up one night with the ingredients I had on hand. It's very quick to make and it has a great deal of flavor from the "crispy" garlic. Try alternate/additional veggies -- mushrooms, red bell pepper, zucchini, spinach, artichokes, peapods, etc. Or substitute shrimp or scallops for the crab. Most dry or fresh pastas would work in this recipe.
This is another of our breakfast favorites with reasonable sugar and low fat. It was adapted from Elswet's mother's Tried and True's. We use Altern [Walmart Brand] sweetener and plain [non-instant and non-quick] oatmeal. I'm so sorry people seem to be having bad experiences with this recipe. We use it all the time and love it. :] PLEASE NOTE: There is NOTHING wrong with this recipe! I make it all the time, and just made it again, using these directions. The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups warm water PLUS 1 tablespoon warm water. Apparently, people are missing the 1 1/4 cups warm water, and only using 1 tablespoon, so DUH it won't work that way!
This is a very simple recipe, which is also a great treat anytime! Whether you're on a sugar-restricted diet, or not, this is a lovely diversion. I hope you enjoy it. If you are watching your sugar, this will be allowable no more than twice per week. If you are watching your cholesterol, blueberries are known cholesterol blockers AND high in anti-oxidents [cancer cell-blockers]!
Perfect way to start the day. Cocoa powder is actually quite healthy, at least when the milk is left out of it. The almonds aren't just a beneficial alternative, it makes for a very tasty and distinct hot cocoa.
This is a wonderful Dinner Roll recipe that we use for holidays and special occasions. Much better than store bought! I have copied it from a since not remembered cookbook and kept using it for years. We can't get through the holidays without it!
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION This is most excellent if you're a cheese cake fan! While this isn't a traditional cheese cake, this is a superior CREAM cheese cake recipe. It's home made cheese cake, but it's not New York style. It's Southern style and it has a wonderful lemony flavor. ABOUT THE ICING This is a very versatile recipe as you can finish this one off any way you like. You can use canned pie filling (any flavor), you can make a standard butter cream icing to drizzle over the top, or you can purchase a commercial cream cheese frosting, warm it in the microwave and drizzle THAT over the top. I like them all. *LOL*.
I found this on a vegan website during Finals week (aah, chocolate!). If you can make a cup of hot chocolate from scratch, you have all the ingredients for this recipe--it doesn't require confectioner's sugar, butter, or solid chocolate. The original recipe called for cornstarch, but I used besan (gram flour/chickpea flour) instead. I also didn't have vanilla, so I stirred in a packet of non-dairy, flavoured creamer at the end. Yum!
Sweet and nutty mixture that I like for a change of side dish. *** Update *** After doing this recipe again and not having some things I tried using candied ginger instead of apricot and chicken bouillon instead of salt also increased the cinnamon (too much poured out) used pecan pieces instead of almonds. Result - I loved it that way also! Conclusion - you can do anything with this and still have a great side dish.
Made this for my freezer meal group this month and it turned out yummy! Adapted/combined several other recipes to come up with this. Stir fry everything in sesame oil or peanut oil for more flavor, then sprinkle with sesame seeds or peanuts at the very end. Very adaptable recipe - enjoy!
