This is a nice hearty warming fun flavorful fiber filled soup. It's adapted from a recipe I found in a Coca Cola cookbook. I'm sure you could play with it even more than I did adding garlic, carrots etc. It can also be made with a ham or beef bone omitting the bouillon cubes. It didn't specify the type of lentils but looking at the cooking time I surmised it was a whole type. I used whole red lentils (Masoor) which turned out perfect! I also added in some cooked crumbled bacon per my husband's request and it was great in it.
Created for RSC#12. Mmm, complex flavors, healthy, tasty, good. While I made this Vegetarian, you can make this with pork or chicken if you want. Mix and match any veggies you have on hand and clean out the pantry while you're at it. I think beans, corn and olives would go nicely in this as well. I chopped my veggies large and chunky. This would probably work great in a crock pot also.
From: "Iron Pots & Wooden Spoons Africa's Gifts to New World Cooking by Jessica B. Harris. I'm posting this because MarraMamba requested it. Sounds like fried peanut butter balls to me. These can be shaped into any form that takes your fancy.
I got this off a turkey website. It went with a Bourbon glazed turkey and apple hash. This was a very tasty mustard. I halved this recipe when I made it and it was plenty. I posted the apple hash recipe also.
I've been going Plum Crazy trying to use up the loads of Santa Rosa Plums from my tree and here's a recipe I came up with using the 1 to 3 ratio I like for Agua Fresca. It's good with Club Soda or Seltzer Water too. I don't understand why "Plum" Juice isn't made and only Prune Juice is Hmm...
This is from the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream & Dessert book. I made this with my overripe Santa Rosa plums from my tree. It was a lovely surprise how good it was. I think I like it better than Strawberry Ice Cream.
Created for the Dining on a Dollar contest. A tasty, healthy, jazzed up cowboy caviar. Full of fiber and protein. Good as a dip, over lettuce, by it's self or wrapped in a tortilla with cheese for a filling lunch. You can easily turn up the heat. Servings depend on if it's a main course or appetizer.
This is my new favorite pasta recipe. I've made it about 10 times the last few months because it's so easy and so good. It's adapted from a grocery store recipe. It's great even without the chicken. You can add onion to this also by sauteing some in the olive oil before adding the tomatoes. Please use all fresh ingredients for the best results.
This is an American version of the Hungarian Dobos Torte. Six thin cake layers filled and frosted with dark chocolate cream, then topped with shattery caramel candy. I used to request this as my birthday cake as a kid because it looks so impressive and I loved to crack the candy topping. It really is more of a grown up cake though, not very sweet. I haven’t had it in ages but it is well worth the work if you want to impress someone.
This is a wonderful sweet, creamy, cheesy, nutty, fruity delight of an ice cream. The ricotta adds a nice cheesy flavor. The rhubarb is subtle but adds a light tangy fruity flavor and beautiful pink color. The almond extract adds a nutty fruity background for the creamy crunch of macadamia nuts. I feel the honey and zest brought everything together. If you would like a spiced ice cream, a teaspoon of cinnamon would probably be good in it. I was tempted to add a can of crushed pineapple too but I was afraid it would overpower the other flavors.
Healthy, Low-Calorie, Lowfat, Low-carb, Flavorful, Vibrant soup. I decided to try to make a Healthy Vegetarian option soup that would be light and refreshing for the Summer. The ingredients in green curry paste were a perfect spicy match for green vegetables. Most soups like this would have coconut cream in them but I didn't want the calories and it is wonderful without it.
This is way better than any banana cream pie I’ve ever had. I liked it with whipped cream, my Hubby and Mother liked the cherry topping. I tried this with 2x the bananas and it wasn’t as good…it was mushy.

Imfulafula when translated means river river. It has been given this name because apparently after drinking a couple of glasses you have the courage to cross any flowing river. Be careful that the imfulafula doesn’t expode on you!
