I have a co-worker that is addicted to those hot cafe mocha drinks...So for Christmas, last year, I decided to make them their own 'instant' mix...I even bought a 60 oz 'coffee-themed' container (that came with it's own TBSP measure) for them to store it in! A few TBSP of the 'mix' and some hot water and voila! Cafe Mocha!
Clafouti is a French dessert, half pudding and half cake; very easy to prepare. Fresh cherries are the classic filling; however, if these are not available, use canned tart cherries, (not pie filling), figs, prunes, or halved dried apricots. Nut Warning - Almonds and Almond extract. Eliminate these ingredients from the recipe if your have an intolerance to nuts.
These lovely little cheesecake tartlets are the perfect finish to a nice dinner. I got the recipe from the Kraft Philadelphia Creme Cheese Cookbook of 1988. Use your favorite preserve or fresh fruit as topping. They also freeze well. Wrap chilled cheesecakes individually in plastic wrap and freeze. Let stand at room temperature for @ 40 minutes before serving.
A quick and easy way to prepare a tasty and filling pasta dish, originally from Mr. Food. Just use your favorite bottled spaghetti sauce. You can use any shape of pasta. I do add more cheese, but I love cheese!
Found this in a Weight Watcher's cookbook of recipes from the magazine in 2000. This is fast to make and has a nice flavour. Not a zingy dish, but the kids and I enjoyed it. 2/3 of a cup is 3 WW points.
Forget the nasty grocery store marshmallows. These are wonderful, kids like to help make them, and they are made of real items in your kitchen. Prep time includes sitting overnight. I found this recipe in "Barefoot Contessa, Family Style"
I am submitting this as a recipe assuming you have made yogurt, have a yogurt maker or: there are several recipes here at 'Zaar describing "how to make" Yogurt. This makes a mild, smooth vanilla yogurt great plain, with fruit, cereals or grains. (time does not include chilling time)
An unusual but oh-so-simple, pot pie. This is the only way my husband will eat a pot pie. He hates those recipes with a thick biscuit-y crust and this is thinner. It makes a nice gravy with the cream of celery soup and chicken broth.
