When I was growing up, mom would turn leftover beets into a salad using mayonaise. I didn't particularly care for it. But someone mentioned that that beets pairs well with balsalmic vinegar and lemon. Hmmmm so I tossed together a quick recipe with some leftover beets and I ended up rather enjoying it!
A simple recipe that comes from a co-worker, Annie. Wrapped in cellophane, it makes a great gift bags or serve in a bowl for a party mix for the next gathering. Simple, addictive and oh so wonderful! NOTE: Mix and match your favourite dried fruits and nuts to create your personalized version of this recipe.
This is a recipe that I received from a friend and modified it slightly to suite my tastes. I like it because it doesn't have all the fats normally associated with this salad and the taste is fabulous! Hope you enjoy too!
Many years ago I tried this lemon flavoured couscous in a Moroccan restaurant. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I searched for some time to find a few recipes that came close and I have come up with something very close and just as enjoyable for me and my friends!
This is a recipe that comes from various sources, the original recipe was from Nina Simonds Asian Noodles cookbook but I found the flavour too overpowering. So I searched a few other recipes and made a few changes to a recipe that I now enjoy. I like to serve this sauce over vermicelli noodles and stir-fried meat and vegetables or use it as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or as a dressing for salads.
This is a recipe I frequently get requests for and it is one of my favourite recipes to bring along to a function not only because it is a crowd pleaser but also because it is so darn simple.... might as well make a double batch if you want to have some for yourself!
Here is a healthy recipe that is fast and easy to make. It is great to use up pita that is starting to go stale. Munch on them by themselves or use them as a dip for salsa. If you find the lemon pepper a little too spicy, use one of the Mrs. Dash's blends such as Fiesta Lime, Caribbean Citrus, Garlic and Herb or Onion and Herb. Great for sodium restricted or low cholesterol diets. A wonderful substitute for potato chips!
This is a recipe I received from a girlfriend in the Maritimes. It is a simple carmel pudding made in two parts, one to make the carmel the second the pudding base. Add the two together and something amazing happens!
On a cold winter morning there is nothing better than a hearty breakfast to start an active day! But you don't need to limit this to breakfast options!This recipe is a great way to use up leftover boiled or baked potatoes. So fast (if using leftover potatos) and simple, yet has received many positive reviews from people. Being a lover of the combination of lemon and potato, I came up with this recipe many years ago as a tasty alternative to bland homefries!
Don't throw out that stale bread! This is a recipe that you can use either fresh or stale bread to make. It is a healthy alternative to the traditional French toast. You can substitute the yogurt for low fat ricotta cheese and use whatever fruit your family prefers.
This is a recipe I picked up many years ago and have modified it to my needs. It is low fat, low sugar and lots of flavour with a chewy texture. The use of protein powder gives me a cookie I can indulge in after my workout and feel good about the treat.
