These are foods that I have been wanting to try but never got the courage. Now that I am trying to switch to a more vegetarian based diet and this is the perfect place to catalog my efforts. Not that I won't be cooking meat, it's just that I am venturing down the veggie path.
Bananas, these creamy, sweet tasting fruit are so delicious any way you have them. I usually have them plain but sometimes when I purchase more than we can consume in the time frame,they get too ripe and I have to make some sort of dessert. Today, I made banana muffins. They were easy to do and came out very moist, I think it's because I didn't mash the bananas smooth but left it a bit chunky and added two tablespoon yogurt.Here goes
Moist Banana Muffins
4 bananas smash to a chunky texture 3/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup melted buttered 2 eggs 2 tbsp plain yogurt 1tsp vanilla 2 tbsp main yogurt 2 cups a.p flour 1tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/8 tsp salt
It's on lazy summer days that my appitte calls for a filling breakfast. You would think that I would want something lite and fruity, but oh no no it has to be pancakes. This has to be my very favorited food to have. If I am feeling down, or if I am happy or even just waking up hungry, pancakes are my go to comfort food. I like all flavors and all textures, but chewy pancakes make me smikle. I know fluffy is the way to pancake heaven, but I can get there doing chewy.
This morning I woke up with my mind on pancakes. I knew i had toi make some and they had to be special. I have been meaning to do a pear and apple combination for a while and there was no better time to do so. This is a pancake lover home and I knew I would have no trouble finding help to eat the goodies, Even the Hubster enjoys a plate of pancakes.
So here we go with: PEAR APPLE PANCAKES with fruit compote
1 cup all-purpose flour
1tsp baking powder
Yesterday like any other day I sat wondering what my vegetable of the day should be. I thought of doing carrots, but that's an everyday occurrence. I usually make a carrot, celery and spinach drink in the mornings so I wasn't excited about having it for supper. I, then remember the brussels sprout sitting the cooler that no one want. I for one love the little sprouts and so does my hubby. The children however have declared that they hate brussels sprout and there is nothing I can do to them that will change their minds.
So, I decided and against the children's wishes I MADE THE SPROUTS.
I simple sauteed a handful of sliced mushroom and chopped onion until tender and golden. I then added the Brussels sprout and cover the sauce pan so as to build up steam. I turned the stove down to medium low and added salt and pepper to taste. If there is not enough liquid in the pot add about 2-3 tablespoon water, cook until tender, but crunchy.
The verdict, one child ate tw…
I am back after a long hiatus, I had to work on other pressing things and get family matters organized. I also had to make sure my husband's graduation from university was taken care of as this was a big moment for him. My daughter is in her last year of high school and it has been a hectic time both for her and myself. But, I have been busy cooking both for me and my friend Christia that I have been busy helping out for a bit.
Today, I am featuring a dish that is simple but,goes well with any side dish you marry it with. The sauce is clean yet tangy and smooth on the palate. This mock fish that is versitile, with a clean flavor that you could add any herb or spice and create a unique taste. How I did it
