A recipe of my creation, it combines the tartness of the berries with the sweetness of the chocolate
Note: I used all low fat/ sugar sub ingredients because it helps keep it healthier without effecting the flavor, but you can use whole fat/plain sugar if you'd like.
This is a ,albeit rather strange, awesomely delicious recipe i've adapted using sriracha, sour cream, eggs, and begedil (recipe provided below).
Note: you can find sriracha in most grocery stores (safeway, winco, etc.), it is red with a green cap; and has a picture of a rooster on it.
This is a Quiche of my own invention using sun-dried tomatoes, artichokes, and bacon!
fluffy, airy, savory and delicious!
Note: this makes 1 large deep-dish quiche, but you can divide it into 2 smaller quiches if you like.
I call these "Pantry Sloppy Joes" because we needed dinner and I threw these together from whaat was in my pantry and fridge. However, these can be altered if you like;
For a more savory flavor, lesson the beef broth and replace 8 oz. of ketchup with 4oz tomato paste and 4 oz tomato sauce.
For chunkier sloppy joes, cut the onions larger and throw in some shredded carrots and/or minced green bell.
This is an adaption of my "Blackberry/Blueberry pie", it has a tasty ,buttery, cornmeal crust and fresh strawberries in a sweet/tart glaze filling. Good for a summer party or to use up that old cornmeal or tub of strawberries you want to use up (feel free to add other berries! just make sure to add more sugar/splenda and less vinegar if it is a more tart berry!)
Is it cake or is it bread? it is delicious at any rate and is good for a snack on the go or a quick bite in the morning.
(NOTE: feel free to add some berries to the batter for berry snack slices or swirl in some cinnamon and raisins for cinnamon swirl snack cakes)
A tasty recipe for mashed potato donuts that I found on Taste of Home (tweaked slightly); they are fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside.
A good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.
NOTE: mashed potatoes include milk and butter
This is a very lovely summer pie, sweet, but not cloying, with a buttery cornmeal crust. I used frozen blueberries and blackberries, but feel free to use all blueberries or any other berry you'd like (though you may need to adjust the sugar amounts accordingly per berry swap).
This is an adapted recipe from a website I passed, the cake is moist and fluffy and the flavors balance well with the berries.
I did not have frosting on mine (I did a mild lemon glaze) as I do not like frosting; however I will provide a few spot recipes here of different buttercreams and the like for convenience. Or you can just do store bought.
For Lemon Basic Frosting:
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
7-8 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons half-and-half
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon lemon zest
3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
This is a recipe I created after endless hampering from my Sis for some cinnamon rolls.I ,however, have a pathological aversion to yeast, so I created this instead.
Rather tasty and quite customizable.
This is an easy couscous recipe, good with chicken skewers and mixed veggies.
Note: Feel free to swap out the veggies for a vegetable of your choice; broccoli, asparagus, onion, or mushrooms would probably work well too.
Also, feel free to add some grilled chicken for a complete meal!
Something I whipped up one day when I had extra ricotta, homemade peanut butter (you can see in my recipe file) and no eggs; These were soooooo good, chocolately and peanut butter-y, and moist. They are indulgent, and fairly healthy!
Note: can easily be converted into mini-muffin/brownie bites; cook for 3-4 minutes less. Will make twice as many as stated.
