autumn is my favorite time of year to cook! this recipe can be prepared either spicy or sweet, your choice! two of my posted mexican-inspired seasoning mix recipes are offered as suggestions.
my dh's amish mother raised him on this recipe. he much prefers it over store-bought ketchup. it was a taste i had to acquire, but now my ds's also prefer this type of ketchup. enjoy!
my italian mil was thoroughly impressed by my non-italian treatment of her olives. they are great appetizers and condiments to your fav pasta.(from the vancouver sun) ps. cook time include fridge time
a favorite from a local restaurant no longer in business. not an authentic mexican chile relleno, but a crispy, flaky version.
this is a dairy free
thickened with a mix of cooked oats and vegies, this soup has all the flavor of the original with a fraction of the fat stuff. low in cholestorol too!
really an effective spice blend...i got it in one of maharishi ayurveda newsletters and thought of sharing here !hope this will help you melt your blues away.. :-))
this recipe was adapted by my mother and myself from meat chili. we fed it to my dad and only told him afterwards it wasn't meat - he couldn't tell the difference! this is a fast and filling meal and is even better, cold or warm, the next day! i serve lef
a yummy thick chocolate mint brownie from york peppermint patties! get the sensation!
if spinach scares you, this is one recipe that contains spinach that you do not have to be afraid of! it is so delicious that even my picky kids like it. my mother-in-law makes this for get-togethers and she passed the recipe on to me. you can also use br
i love mirj's funky chicken with sesame noodles. i decided to use the noodles as my inspiration for this recipe. it's really similar but totally different. we liked it and i hope others will too! cook time is the time it takes to make the pasta. *update*
yes, this sounds bizarre, but it really is tasty and i have had some that was going around for months. it is a nice thing to start at work, school, church, etc. try it...it's like a chain cake instead of a chain letter :)
stefan and emily used to make this stuff when her herb garden was overly productive. the last batch i made was with a blend of thyme, summer savoury, basil, oregano and a bay leaf.

anytime munchies...another sweat free preparation for all of you !

this is the perfect pound cake recipe...plus so easy to prepare and only one bowl to wash! this is a firm cake, so if you are into cutting and shaping cakes, this works well. i have used it for christening and communion cakes, creating crosses, etc and us
the name says it all...absolute must for all the mushroom lovers out there...smooth as silk gravy!!
cinnamonophiles will love this one. try it on french toast.
you just have to try it to believe it.
if you don't like it too hot, leave out the chili peppers and sambal, it will still be a spicy indonesian inspired dish.
i made this up when i had an avocado that was getting too ripe and some leftover cilantro. it's good with chips or cut-up veggies, as a topping for mexican food or baked potatoes, etc. totally vegan and even my husband liked it.
this is a great smoothie, thick and creamy. my husband loves it, i think the kids would like it too.
this version of the famous indian chaat (pronounce with the emphasis on the
i am addicted to this! and it's so easy to make and good for taking to bbq's, potlucks etc. found the recipe in my local grocery store's weekly advertisement.
by chef anthony fielding at poncho's wreck restaurant in wilmington, vermont.
the mayonnaise in this may sound strange, but it it the "secret ingredient" that makes the cake so moist. i recommend not using miracle whip as it contains spices and flavorings that might alter the taste. they make great cupcakes too.
a unique baking method preserves crispness of the crust and yields a slightly spicy, not too sweet pumpkin pie. the name came shortly after someone purchased three of them from me for $75 :-)
the first time i made oatmeal this way i thought it tasted like french toast topped with berries...thus the name! :) use whichever kind of berries you like...my personal favorite is cherries.
created spontaneously to handle a carby pasta bake craving but this turned out to be amazingly delicious! a unique, tasty side or main dish that's healthy and low carb, too.
this is, again, from vegweb.com. this got absolutely amazing reviews over there, so i'm guessing it's pretty darn good (multiple users said it would even fool the dairy lovers)! a few users suggested only using half the recommended amount of tofu (1 12o
the creaminess comes from cashew butter (and banana, too!) from flutternutbutters.com.-slightly altered. so wonderful on a blustery autumn day!
when i was vegan, i missed good cream soups. this one has an excellent, unique flavor. it isn't low fat though, sorry.
we named this smoothie the "creamsicle" smoothie, because to us, it's tastes just like a creamsicle. so good!
adapted from alex jamieson's great american detox diet. serve with crusty bread and salad for a hearty, satisfying meal.
i figured that if i had to forgo my jeans to get all dressed up for a dinner party i was giving, why should my salad get off easy? the result is beautiful to look at and impressed everyone, plus they raved about my decades-old "secret" dressing. quantit
i got this recipe from my mom in law. i am not a big fan of bran muffins, but these are something different. crunchy, moist, and yummy!
this is from nancy campbell from above rubies magazine. "the chlorophyll in greens combats tumor growth; it works on the adrenal glands, purifies the lymph nodes, unclogs the arteries and enriches the blood. it protects against radiation. chlorophyll is
i made up this recipe and whipped it up the night before thanksgiving, it was great! it's about as healthy as a pie can possibly be! only problem was that my crust was soggy, but the packaging gave a suggestion to that, which i have included to keep yours
spicy burgers are vegetarian.
i have no money, so i had to make something to eat out of what i had hanging around (not much). this is what i ended up with!! i had to eat it by itself, but i think it would be good with a juicy steak or some grilled marinated portabello mushrooms. the f
jamba juice, abc7.. same drill. note you can use sherbet instead of sorbet. the limeade is from the frozen juice isle with the oj and lemonade.
from a jamba juice in chicago via the abc7 recipes.
this is a great side dish for pork, fish or turkey. very simple to make. my hubby surprised me and loved it. usually likes corn (any type of corn) served plain, but this is the exception.
use all the left overs from past desserts.
a delicious yet low-fat twice-baked potato side dish with a blend of classic middle eastern flavours: chickpeas, cumin and coriander. serve with roasts or with your favourite middle eastern main course dish. adapted from "practical cookery: low fat". t
unforgettable, in every way. if you don't want to use maple syrup, use honey. you can substitute 1 lg pkg of coleslaw mix for the slaw mixings below. from crazy plates.
this is from the hungry girl newsletter. i haven't tried it, but it looks decent. it serves 4 and has 3 ww points per serving.
this recipe comes from belgium. it is a lovely custard fruit bake, which resembles a cake. can be eaten warm or cold served with vanilla ice-cream or just plain. ive never used frozen berries in this. you can try but then make sure that they are not thaw
