When autumn arrives, I especially love the taste of apples! While preparing Sunday brunch, I came up with this simple recipe (if you can call it a recipe) that delivers big flavor with little effort. I'm calling it Apple Flip but I hope you'll call it just plain inspired!!
I used Cooks Grand Reserve champagne - inexpensive, but great with this concoction!
The measurements are required, but just eyeball the half-and-half combo in your flute!!
Trying to lower cholesterol levels, I got tired of eating oatmeal everyday, so I came up with this smoothie that includes ingredients that are supposed to lower your cholesterol - oatmeal, orange juice and cinnamon. I don't dread breakfast anymore as this creamy concoction is really tasty and I KNOW it's good for me! The banana supplies the potasium I need each day. Cook time is the blending time, which I estimated.
One thing we really miss now that we're trying to cut back on the sodium is canned soups. We never realized the amount of sodium we were consuming through the soups we purchased!
This is strange sounding, and I made it quite by accident, but we think that, although it might not be as thick as canned soup, it certainly has the flavor. DH says it has more flavor than canned - an explosion of taste!
Withdrawal symptoms are going away .....
I found this recipe while surfing, but I just can't remember where I was when I found it! Mia Culpa!
Nonetheless, it's a fun idea for kids of all ages on St. Patrick's Day and with a few modifications, can be adapted to nearly any occasion.
You'll catch my drift when you see the recipe!
I suppose the reason this is called Deception Tuna Spread is that only a closer look will reveal that you are enjoying plain old tuna from a can! I suppose it's the coctail sauce, but this tastes like shrimp cocktail and at a fraction of the cost!
I love to freeze part of the fruit I use in smoothies because that eliminates the need to use ice and water down the flavor!
This is a refreshing, yet rich-tasting smoothie that we enjoy often.
Prep time does not include time to freeze bananas or slice mangoes.
At one of the newspapers where I wrote hard news, I was responsible for a weekly feature called "Now You're Cookin' " During one Christmas season, recipes for clays were in the order of the week. I got the recipes from a complimentary copy of Homemade Good News, published by the Savanah Foods Company. This clay does indeed have the look, feel and texture of of authentic porcelain bisqueware! It can be used for cookie cutter designs and for free-form modeling as well as simple molding techniques. Because you don't bake them (they air dry), there is no color variation. They remain as white as the season's first snowfall!
Cook time and "servings" listed are approximate, but close.
A healthy snack for kids and grownups, too! Vegetarians can substitute the marshmallows with nuts or other small candies that contain no animal product, like vegan marshmallows! Can get the kids involved with making their snack, too. After an adult cuts the apple wedges, the child(ren) can assemble their "lips."
These are great for those of us who really like eggplant! Also perfect for an appetizer when hosting a cookout, as they are grilled and you don't have to run inside to pick 'em up and deliver. Also super easy and something different.
Found this on my favorite spices website, Spices Etc.
This is soooo good, especially with grilled pork and chicken.
I tried to locate the source of the recipe, but couldn't find it so, to whomever created it, THANKS!!!
I took the liberty of cutting the oil to 1 tablespoon.
I found this recipe on recipegoldmine after realizing that I am not infusing enough holiday gifts. Well, I tried it and found it to be simple to make and very tasty. Went to the Dollar Tree and picked up some wine glasses for presentation and it's truly an adorable gift idea!
This is the weirdest sounding recipe, but I enjoyed it very much - and will again and again! Being on a low sodium, low cholesterol diet, I came up with it to satisfy my hungering for a sausage, egg and cheese sandwich that I used to enjoy in fast food restaurants. I prepared the beans without salt, and the egg white, too.
You'll have 4 "sausage" patties, enough for 4 sandwiches.Cook time does not include time to cook beans.
