Treats For Breakfast

Breakfast breads are comforting but they can be unhealthy. Keep them healthy by adding whole grains, low-fat dairy and fruit. A Healthy Doughnut? Healthy doughnuts do exist. These baked ones are the way to go to reduce the fat and calories. Don’t be put off by the fact that some of the treats are made with whole wheat flour. It adds great flavor, not density. Try baking with different grains and you will be rewarded with some great tasting breads.

GAB_4925_res_mix

I love cheese and I love sandwiches so one day I made an easy cheese sandwich for myself. With a few ingredients that I had in the kitchen, I adapted a recipe and in the end I got this amazing snack.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • 4 slices of bread
  • 50 ml milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • My homemade Red chili jam
  • Cedar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil

Directions:

Whisk the egg in a bowl with salt, pepper and milk. In a pan add the olive oil. When the oil is hot add the 2 slices of bread after you put them through the egg mix both sides.

Cook for 2-3 minutes. Change the sides and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Before taking them out put the cheese on a slice and add the second one on top.

Take it out put it on a plate. Serve it hot with Red chili jam

Jerk Back Ribs

Heathers' Fresh Cooking

I recently found an article containing “11 rib recipes that we must make” this summer.   Really???  Who can resist such temptation!?  Certainly no one in this household.

11 recipes all so wonderful that my life could possibly be less than complete until I have tried each and every one?    Perhaps that is a bit extreme, but anyone who knows me knows that I don’t like to be missing out on anything, especially when it is food related.

I sent Kevin to our local Sams Club for a gross of back ribs, which we separated into several weekly servings to prepare for this grand adventure.    After reading the list, we decided there were actually some we could live without trying and narrowed it down to 5.  Co-incidentally, the same number of portions we got from that enormous package of ribs.

This one happened to be first on the…

Brown Rice and Black Beans with Chile-Ginger Salsa

Heathers' Fresh Cooking

I don’t make a lot of vegetarian dishes.  I was raised a meat and potatoes girl and I don’t see that changing soon.  However, this one caught my eye and I am glad it did.   I have made a few changes from the original recipe to suit our tastes and what could be found in the market.  When you make this, don’t skip the salsa part!  You only need a little dab, but without it, this would be just another bland bowl of rice and beans.

Start to finish, this will be done in about the time it takes to cook the rice.  This recipe makes a nice dinner for 2, with some rice left over.   It can easily be doubled.

COFFEE MACARONS DRESSED UP TO PARTY

Bewitching Kitchen

As I debate with myself the feasibility of changing my blog name to The Bewitching Macaron, I am here to share one more take on the French delicacies I am so in love with. Once again I used my basic recipe that works quite well, with a minor change. I dried the almond flour-powdered sugar mixture for a couple of days before using. That was a tip I found somewhere and decided to try. The filling is a slight modification from Nadiya, a contestant from the Great British Baking Show. Excellent, I highly recommend you give it a try if you are a coffee lover. If you are not a coffee lover, there is always the opportunity to become one. I am showing you the path of caffeine enlightenment. Grab my hand and walk with me…
