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.

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

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…

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.
Brown Rice and Black Beans with Chile-Ginger Salsa
2 Tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 large onion, chopped, divided
1 cup raw brown rice
1/2 teaspoon salt

A distressed mother barges into a Rabbi’s study:
“Rabbi, my son has gone meshuge (crazy)!”
“Calm down, lady, have you taken him a specialist? What makes you think that?”
“Specialist-shmeshalist! Who needs specialists? I am a mother, I know!”
“But, dear lady, what does he do?”
“Oy, Rabbi, he eats pigs and dances with girls!”
“Listen,” – says the Rabbi with a sigh, – “If it were the other way around, that is, if he were dancing with pigs and eating girls, you would have a cause to worry. As it is, he is young and is simply going through a stage.”
Unfortunately, even the great Salvador Dali could not come up with a way of pickling time or preserving it in any other way. Therefore, we’ll have to listen to the Rabbi and do it “the other way around.” We’ll pickle kale, and we’ll let a specialist…
