This is a yummy cake made in a 9 x 13 pan, great for any time of year. The cream cheese layer on top give it a rich and delicious frosting-like topping with the added crunch of healthy walnuts. I found this recipe in a coffee recipe pamphlet.
This desert reminds me of a peanut buster parfait from DQ or of a fudge sundae. It's a great make-ahead desert to bring out when unexpected guests arrive. This could even work with chocolate ice cream. "Cooking time" is time in the freezer.
This is a delicious sweet and savory chicken recipe made in the oven. I like to use thighs and legs but you can use chicken breasts as well...but it's best with the skin on. Allow at least 30 minutes for marinading, 2 hours is best.
**** Note that this is not a marinade, but a sauce that you bake the chicken it. Do not throw out all of the delicious sauce!! Use it over the chicken and/or rice as you serve.****
Living in California, we often see skirt steak available. I found this recipe to be fairly authentic to how they grill it out here. You can use lemon juice, but definitely use the lime juice if you can. The onion is wonderful with this but tends to fall though the grill grates, so have an extra sweet onion sliced thick to grill as well. Allow 2 to 4 hours to marinade. (Time for marinading is included in the cooking time)
I created this one night when I had some turkey smoked sausage to use for dinner and wanted to do something creamy and comforting. I think it's important to use the turkey sausage as it is so much less grease. The regular can get very oily, so if you plan on using that, pre-cook it in a pan and drain on paper towels before you add to the sauce.
This recipe is from a Low Glycemic cookbook. If you are diabetic or eating the low-glycemic way, this rates in the 'very low' category of below 39 if made as directed with a sugar-free yogurt. The flax meal adds a good amount of fiber and it's great for you too! I had one for breakfast and wasn't hungry for the whole morning! The nutrition is: 182 calories, 35 'good' carbs, 3.4 g fiber, 10 g Protein, 327 g calcium.
I found this recipe in a church cookbook and made a couple of changes to it. It uses bisquick baking mix and other ingredients that I always have on hand. You can choose any pie filling you want. The dough can be tricky to work with so have yourself a nice large, clean area and flour handy to help with the rolling process.
This colorful salad recipe came from my mother-in-law and is a family favorite. I've shared it with friends over the years. It's delicious at a potluck, packed in lunches, at barbecues and more. It keeps in the frigerator for a good week. There are other versions out there, but my dressing had less oil and I use Splenda to cut down on the sugar, but you can use regular sugar if you like. Cooking time includes 2 hours for refrigeration.
I have several cute ceramic cookie molds that you use to bake in. They take a special dough that can stand up to being released from the molds. This recipe came in a cookie book that came with one of the molds. The serving size depends on your molds. I will put 12 for the purpose of this recipe.
This is a recipe I found using Fiber One bran cereal. I'm trying to get more whole grains and fiber in my family and this one is a winner! Each muffin has about 5 grams of fiber and because of the cereal being fortified with vitamins, and the milk they contain calcim, folic acid, iron and Vitamin A.
A delicious combination of Indian and Asian flavors. A recipe you won't be sorry you tried! Prep time includes 2 hours marinading. Note: If you can't find the spice Garam Masala, there are several recipes for it on Zaar.
This Jello salad is a tradition in our family to serve with ham or pork. It has shredded cabbage and carrots in it which give it a nice crunch. My Mom always served it when I was a kid and she can't remember where she got the recipe from. My kids love it. You can make with with regular or sugar free jello.
When I lived in the mid-west, I use to get these biscuits as a morning breakfast on occasion....well, on more occasions than I should have. I loved the warm tender biscuits with cinnamon swirlled in it and the sweet icing melting down. Having moved to California 12 years ago, I have really missed these as there are no Hardee's out here. I've found a copy cat recipe for it and I'm on cloud 9!! The person who posted this on another site said she use to work at Hardee's so this is the real-deal
! I can't wait to make these for my husband and kids!
