On the menu tonight: Chicken, Pear, Blue Cheese and Walnuts on Multigrain Bread, served with Spinach Salad. YUM!
I’m not big on squash. Or maybe I should say I’ve never been too big on squash, but I find it really grows on me. The more I eat the stuff, the more I like it. Tonight, I decided to try new varieties: Turban and Delicata. The dish turned out absolutely delicious. Although that Turban Squash is really tough to peel (it… View Post
Squash! That’s what’s for supper tonight…
Second batch was Apple, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts. I used half Buckwheat and Half Whole Wheat flour, which gives the bar a really subtle taste of Buckwheat. That was is a winner, nice and dense, just the way I like them.
I made two batches of mini protein breads today. The first one is Cranberry, Orange and Almonds. They turned out pretty great… Nice and fluffy that one!

I finally decided on these bars. What a good choice I made. They are truly, absolutely decadent. Although I made mine even more decadent by adding a… View Post
I used to eat protein bars every day. While they are a good source of non meat protein and are very convenient for they are highly portable, they aren’t the best as far as nutrients are concerned. Not much freshness going on there!!! So I started looking for a cleaner option and found a recipe for “protein pancakes”. I have… View Post
