I enjoy coming up with different types of oven fries to satisfy my craving for fries while still staying within the ranges of my low fat diet. This is my most recent creation. My husband went 'mmmm' when he tasted the first one. So, i am thinking it is worth posting and sharing :)
I am really trying to eat less meat these days. I was looking for something quick to make but without bouncing back to cooking meat. I looked around at what I had in my cupboards and fridge and came up with these. We enjoyed the way they turned out and will for sure have them again. I suspect this would make a nice tortilla filling too.
I am collecting recipes for my New Year venture back into a largely vegetarian diet. This looks like something my husband and myself will enjoy so I am sticking it here for safe keeping. I found it in the 2008 copy of the yearly 'Vegetarian Christmas' special put out by BBC Good Food Magazine. You can pick the heat of curry paste or powder that will suit your family.
I have just pulled my head out of the avocado sand and discovered that I really like them. So, I have been experimenting with ways to use them in my diet. This was this morning's breakfast. For some reason it reminded me of Mexico. All I needed was a warm breeze instead of cold London.
I am trying to push full forced with my diet to finally reach my 100lbs lost target. So, I am collecting every low fat recipe that looks good to me and this is the latest one. I found it in the April 2009 of BBC good food magazine. The recipe says that the uncooked burgers can be frozen so they would be good to make ahead and have when I need something quick but also healthy.
This is another attempt at me trying to find low fat and low calories 'treats' that also pack a bit of flavor. I am a pickles freak so I would pretty much be happy with any cucumber and vinegar combo but I especially like these when I want a more delicate flavor. They are good as a side with dishes like salmon or I even sometimes just put a few on a sandwich when I want some zest without any fat. I make this with Splenda because I really don't want the sugar as I am counting fat and calories.
I just received my swap package from PanNan, my partner in the annual herbs and spices swap. She included creole seasoning in the package and I decided to try to do something with it and this is what happened. They went down pretty well with my guests. If you like things particularly spicy you could go with a bit more of the seasoning.
If there are two recipes that should be included in any list of home cooking comfort foods it would oatmeal cookies and banana bread. So, why not combine the two? This is also a good way to take those slightly overripe bananas and turn them from trash to treasure.
I love home fries but can't have them on my diet because they are fried. So, when I saw this recipe in the 'Eat Up, Slim Down' cookbook put out by Prevention magazine I wanted to put it here so I had it the next time the mood strikes.
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Florence Miller who is my Nana's sister and always called 'Aunt Puss' by myself. I look the most like her than of any of the other Muir family members I have met.
Damper is a traditional Australian bread, made without yeast, and commonly made on a campfire in a cast iron camp oven.
This is tweeked from Margaret E. Walker
article in Outback Camping When Margaret was asked her what kind of tasty cheese, and learned that the word 'tasty' is used in Australia the way 'sharp' is used in the US. We thanked Margaret for helping us learn and had a good laugh at the thought of eating non-tasty cheese.
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Mrs. Alice (Podgie) Meyer. She didn't specify the number of servings this recipe makes. So, I am using guesswork. Chill time is not included in cooking time.
