This is a favorite in my house. My mom has been making it for as long as I can remember, so I decided it was finally time to write it down. It's so sweet, and the margarine and brown sugar melt together to make a delicious sauce!
I've been searching for a vegetarian sloppy joe recipe I really like, and I finally found it. This one is total comfort food! They remind me a lot of my great aunt's sloppy joes. If you've never cooked with TVP before, give it a try! I started using it recently, and it tastes amazingly like meat! It really takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I got this recipe from Heather Van Vorous at www.helpforIBS.com.
This is a delicious brownie recipe I found on the IBS message boards. It's so simple to throw together, and you would never guess that it's low-fat and dairy-free! I like the brownies best when they're cool. Yum! They were originally called "Mom's Best Brownies", but I renamed them because I didn't want to imply that this was my mom's recipe!
Who needs drugs when you have these brownies?! They're so rich and chocolately I would NEVER have guessed they're low fat... but the ingredients don't lie! I've found my new favorite brownie recipe. Be careful, though... just like the drugs, they're habit-forming. I got this recipe from TessLouise on the IBS message boards at www.helpforIBS.com.
This came to my inbox today, and since it's almost apple season here in the Northeastern US I thought I'd share it! The descriptions says, "This is a moist and cake like, spicy, nutty, apple cookie." I can't wait to try it! The recipe is from Aunt Mikie at Allrecipes.com, although I added my own touches. If you make it with the soy milk and unsalted margarine it's lactose-free!
This is the perfect side dish on a chilly Autumn evening. The apples give it just the right amount of sweetness, and it smells heavenly cooking. I actually cooked this in a smaller oval casserole dish and used 2 sweet potatoes and 3 apples, so obviously the amounts are very flexible. Just reduce the other ingredients and make sure you use enough OJ so that it covers about 2/3 of the sweet potatoes and apples. Yum! I got this wonderful recipe from my friend Shell Marr.
With Valentine's Day coming up I just had to share this scrumptious-looking recipe for heart-shaped scones. I plan on trying it very soon using margarine and soy milk in place of the heavy cream! I got this from Care2.com's Eat Well Naturally newsletter. They also say you can make the dough hearts ahead of time and freeze them, then bake the frozen dough hearts 20 to 25 minutes.
This is my great aunt's famous sugar cookie recipe! They're her signature, and she brings them to every family gathering. I know there are a ton of other sugar cookie recipes on Zaar, but I didn't see any quite like this. They're scrumptious! She told me she got them from The Good Housekeeping Cookbook, Hearst Magazines, 1949. The prep time does not include time to chill overnight, and the serving size is an estimate!
These are delicious muffins with a unique ingredient... crystallized ginger! They're perfect on a crisp Autumn morning, or anytime for that matter. They're also dairy-free and low-fat! The recipe is from Mags2003 on the IBS message boards at www.helpforibs.com.
This recipe is posted in response to a request for ways to use acorn squash. I've never tried it, but it looks excellent! I got it from Jackie Manni at The Post Punk Kitchen (a website of vegan recipes). I'm sorry the amounts aren't more specific, but this is what she posted!
This came into my inbox today from About.com, and I just had to share it. It looks like an easy and healthy weeknight dinner. They recommend mopping up the juices with some whole grain bread. I think this might be even better with some spices sprinkled on top along with the cheese, maybe basil and oregano.
This is my favorite breakfast during peach season! It's sweet and comforting, and so easy because it can be made the night before and just popped in the oven in the morning. This recipe is from the Churchtown Inn in Churchtown, PA, although I modified it slightly. If you use soy milk and a dairy-free margarine, it's dairy-free!
