While researching an oatbran banana scone I was making to check if I had the proper ingredient quantities, I came across this intriguing recipe, so I decided to save it. There are plenty of options here, why not try them all?
While looking for something entirely different, I found this recipe, entitled "5 Minutes/3 Bananas/1 Loaf of Goodness" Banana Bread. As I'd been looking for a good, simple banana bread recipe for some time, I decided to add this one to my recipes here, because it definately fits the bill. Personally, I add nuts, as they're a must in banana bread in this house, but add whatever you like best in yours.
Delicious cookies with a little bit of everything - crunchy, chewy... yum! I saw other similar recipes in the database, but none exactly like this. From Canadian Living. I like to add nuts to mine as well, for a cookie packed with stuff!!! If you're not a raisin fan, use dried cranberries, or more nuts and chocolate chips.
What a perfect dish for an outdoor dinner!! Using your grill won't heat up the kitchen, and grilled peaches taste absolutely divine! Choose freestone peaches, because they are easy to cut neatly into halves. From Canadian Living.
Fresh strawberries and basil turn the drink kids love to make and sell into a sophisticated booze-free refreshment. Add plenty of ice or use an ice ring to keep it cold. Bottled lemon juice works fine, but if you can find fresh squeezed, or have the gumption to squeeze it yourself, it'll be that much tastier; you'll need about 10-20 lemons, depending on how juicy they are.

Good old fashioned homemade laundry detergent. No colourants, perfumes - and the only smell is clean! Make sure to use rubber gloves to mix this together, and store in a sealed container. The ingredients should be available in the laundry aisle of large grocery stores.
My sister Chris made me this stir fry for me first around 17 years ago when I visited her and her now husband in their first apartment. I don't think I'd had tofu yet, although I'd been vegetarian for a few years at that point. I still love it and make it regularly. I often add some stirfry sauce to it these days, so that's your option. Serve with rice or noodes, or your favourite grain.
A happy experiment, born some extra peanut butter and peanut butter chips, and a need for an awesome brownie recipe. DH said they were Outstanding - and this from a guy whose high praise usually comes in the form of a grunted, "good".
Street vendors across Mexico sell this style of roasted or grilled corn topped with mayonnaise, chili powder and Cotija cheese. You can serve the unadorned corn on a platter with small bowls of the sauce, cheese and lime on the side so everyone can make their own. Found online on Eating Well.
Yum. Made this recipe up this morning, based on my usual scone recipe, but I goofed with the amount of oats and it was a happy mistake! I hope you like them! I should note that this is a more healthy, grainy, scone, not a buttery & flaky one - DH & I have really come to enjoy this for a more stick-to-your-ribs scone. Edited Nov '10 to only fresh or frozen cranberries, as the moisture is essential to the scone's texture.
Mom's well known for her cherry pie. Years ago, she told me not to tell the secret... but I know the secret's out, so here it is! The beautiful thing is that it has only four ingredients - plus the pastry, of course. Mom's cherry pie puts any boughten cherry pie to shame - you won't be able to even look at one again! For a vegan version, use soy or almond milk to brush pie. Oh, and the secret? Almond extract!
I was inspired to come up with this simple and delicious salad after making another salad, recipe #399915. It's delicious and cooling - and low fat, too! The quinoa and beans add protein, making it a fantastic lunch dish. Pitted kalmatta olives would make a great addition!
In place of peaches, use any of your favourite fruits for this quick and easy morning blast of nutrition. Add just enough honey or maple syrup for your preferred sweetness. Quinoa flakes can be found in most health food stores and organic supermarkets like Whole Foods. They look like oatmeal, but are made from Quinoa, and as a result, have the protein, complex carbs, and everything else that makes Quinoa a nutritional powerhouse! From Quinoa 365.
Reminiscent of a tropical holiday, this breakfast cereal also makes a nie lunch or afternoon snack. Serve hot or cold. From Quinoa 365. You may wish to add 1/4 cup of unsweetened toasted coconut for a different and crunchy texture... or, a sliced banana, for more tropical taste!
I made and *LOVED* recipe #381617 - absolutely loved it! So, I wanted to combine my favourite other bread, multi-grain, with this recipe, as well as tweak it a bit, because I and several reviewers found it not quite hot enough - almost as if the finely chopped jalapenos were lost in the loaf! I hope you like what I came up with!
Found on Homemakers, this is an easy, and smaller portioned vegetarian quinoa chili. Qunioa has more protein than any other grain, as well as more nutrients! Make sure to rinse your quinoa well, as this will remove any residual bitter-tasting natural saponins coating.
