I heard this trick on Dr Oz show and it work!!!

Take a boxe of cake and had 1 1/2 cup of sparkling water instead of the oil water and eggs. You cook it like instructed on the box. It makes an awsome cake! with half the fat and no eggs.

620923_tn?1405378443

Even though I'm Italian, I recently discovered pasta e fagioli (macaroni & beans)-- easiest recipe for a lazy cook such as myself!

buy vege broth, canned beans (I like white), canned tomatoes, & small pasta (I used alphabets, for fun).
I cooked beans in vege. broth, & cooked pasta separately in it too, threw it together w/tomatoes.
Season as you like; add meat or leftover veges. if you want.  It literally takes 10 min.

Ok well I know it is not Thursday but I tried a new recipe and both my DH and  I loved it...so here it is :

  Apple Turnovers-

1 cup of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold butter divided
1/4 cup of ice water

  In  a small bowl combine flour, salt and cut in 1/4 cup of butter.blend until crumbly gradually add water tossing with a fork until a ball forms.

On a lightly floured board, roll dough to a 10" x 12" rectangle,

Cut the remaining butter into thin slices,  on the short side of the rectangle arrange the butter slices on 2/3 of the dough keeping in an inch from edges. fold the remaining 1/3 of dough with none of the butter over the mid section (1/3) of the dough with butter, then fold over remaining dough with the butter so it is covered with the other 2/3s.

Now fold this in half, and roll into a 12x6" rectangle and repeat the folding and rolling process one more time.

lightly dust with flour and fold and wrap in saran wrap and place in fridge for an hour,.

Filling

1/3 cup sugar ( I added some light brown sugar too approx 2 tbsp)
2 tsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp cinnamon

2 med apples
1 tsp lemon juice* ( or water)

In a saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon , lemon juice or water in the saucepan add apples and toss to coat, bring to a boil stirring constantly, turn down to a simmer for 10 to 12 mins or until apples are tender.


1 egg beaten with 1 1/2 tsp water in a separate bowl

Take a jelly roll pan and cover in foil, then unfold the dough, cut into 4 equal sections, brush with egg wash, add apples  and fold over and close with a fork, cut 2 slits in the top and brush again with egg wash.

Bake @ 450 for 17 to 20 mins
Makes 4 turnovers.

Serve with ice cream or

1/4 cup of confectioners sugar
1 tsp water

Drizzle over turnover when slightly cooled.

Enjoy : P

My family loves stuffed French toast, but it's just too much for me now. So, I modified it to fit my new goal of reducing stress :)

I don't really use measurements, but I can put the ingredients...

Bread (I use whatever we happen to have...)
Egg whites
Milk
Vanilla
Cinnamon
Fat-free cream cheese - room temp
Agave syrup (or sugar)
2 bananas
Strawberries
Cooking spray or olive oil
Skillet or griddle
Syrup (I use sugar free)

I make the filling first:
Blend Cream cheese, agave syrup, vanilla. Smash one banana and mix it in. Smetimes I also add strawberry jam. Slice other banana and strawberries. Set these aside.

French toast next:
mix egg whites, vanilla, and cinnamon together. Dip bread in mixture, then cook on skillet or griddle until golden brown on both sides.

Finally, put them together. Put one slice French toast on plate. Then put as much or little cream cheese mix on. Put bananas and/or strawberries on. Cover with another slice of toast. Then your choice of syrup.

You can use any type of fruit you want. Or no fruit! I've been known to just use preserves or jam, even lol
Yummy :)

Oops! The milk goes with the egg white mixture.... Not too much, though.

  Hi all I made Chicken turnovers using the same dough as for the apple turnovers.....I  cooked 2 chicken breasts in some broth along with onions, celery and carrots....when done I cut the chicken up in to edible pieces,,,,

I spooned some cream of chicken soup on top of the chicken inside the turnover....(right from the can, not diluted.)....covered the chicken and sealed the  pastry and baked using the same oven temp and timing as the apples ....

  Hi all I have been making my own syrup for pancakes, french toast, etc....

So if u have ne strawberries that are over ripe but too soft to eat, u can hull them, quarter them and then add one cup of water, to one cup of sugar (or to taste)....and 2 cups of the 1/4ered berries...cook the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves and comes to a boil, approx 10 mins...add berries and cook for another 10 mins....strain the berries out of the syrup, cool then refrigerate.

Enjoy : )

Ok here is one of my quick and easy favorites;

Hobo Stew

One Kielbaska sausage in the package
two cans green beans
two cans sliced potatoes
3/4 stick unsalted butter
1 tsp. black pepper

melt butter in frying pan
cut sausage into 1" slices and slightly brown in pan on medium heat then
open, drain and place green beans and potatoes in pan
pepper to taste (I like a lot of pepper on this dish)
cover and cook on medium heat for 30 minutes it's that simple

good served with freshly baked crescent rolls with cheese inside, and salad with ranch dressing :-)
Blank
620923_tn?1405378443

  Hi, I do something similar but in a fire...I wrap the sausage along with carrots that were sliced, some onion, and potatoes and season and of course butter....place on the hot coals and turn every 5 mins....this can get done in approx 20 mins.....depends on how  hot the coals are....and very tasty.


  This is a camping  recipe and one that was called a hobo dinner....lol....we will also do it on top of the gas grill as I do not get camping  since my surgery.
Blank
5640779_tn?1375816966
Mmmmm yummy! I'll have to try it!  I love to grill... Can't camp much here as its too hot, but I we t camping all the time back in the Midwest. Nothing better than a good camp fire meal :-)
Blank
620923_tn?1405378443

  I agree...I have pie irons too that we made apple pies and even pizza with left overs after spaghetti...I love the meals we made camping....my DD and I would make our own apple sauce over an open fire...yummmmmmmmm

I made pumpkin brownies. It's my kids favorite desert. And it's easy to make! All you need is a large can of pumpkin pure (unsweeten) and two box of brownies mix. You mix it to getter and bake it accordingly to the instructions on the box. And voila perfect moist brownies with added fibres.

I know this is late.. but, I couldn't get on yesterday. I baked pies yesterday, and one was a experiment.. because I didn't have enough frozen cherries.. and it tasted the best.

3 cup frozen cherries (was supposed to be 4 cups.. but, like I said.. I didn't have enough)
2 large gaila (or similar) apples peeled/cored/chunked
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 tablespoon cornstarch
1/8 tablespoon almond extract
extra sugar to sprinkle on the top
Pie dough (store bought or homemade)


I preheated the oven to 375 degrees F. I put the thawed cherries in a medium pot and added the chunks of apples and let it come to a simmer.. then I took it off the burner and added the sugar, cornstarch and almond extract.. I mixed that well and put back on the burner on low heat and stirred until it got thicker. I took it off the heat and set aside and put the dough in a 9inch pie pan.. when the filling was cool, I added it to the pie pan.. topped it with another pie dough.. crimped the edges cut the excess dough off.. vented the top and sprinkled sugar on.

I baked it 55 minutes (can go between 45-60minutes check towards 45)

I know adding apples probably isn't anything genius.. but it was really good!
