I never thought about using soy in bread pudding, but what a great idea! thanks :)

4 green onions, chopped

Grease an 11x7" baking pan. Put chicken in pan and toss with taco seasoning to coat. Soften cream cheese and whisk well with the chives and green sauce in a medium bowl. Stir in the chiles. Pour sauce evenly over chicken; top with cheese. Bake at 350º 25 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with green onions.

hey sherry, do you have any of these cool recipes that don't go in the oven?  i do not use my oven for anything but storage.  i usually can translate to microwave but it is harder that way. 

thanks,

Wilted Onions

A hot mixture is poured over sliced onions for a relish; or on bread for a sandwich if you really like onions ( nice with that chewy pugliese from Costco); or on top of a chop. Or under some chicken in the Crockpot.   Or whatever.

Ingredients:
1/2 Cup each of water, oil, and white vinegar*
2 teaspoons salt
bit of pepper
1 tablespoon sugar
3 or 4 drops Tabasco.

--------
One or two sliced onions. I slice them fairly thin (using one of those box-type gadgets you slide the onion over).  Even one onion makes a lot.

Instructions: heat the above to boiling (microwave is fine), and pour over the onions.  When the mix is cool, put in a jar and store in fridge.  Supposed to keep 2 or 3 weeks, but it's tasted fine for longer than that.

*This isn't brain surgery.  I've used rice vinegar as well as plain white, or a mix of the two.  And canola oil, or part olive oil.  I like to use sweet onions.  Used a red onion once simply because it was on hand; the result was a slightly strange pink, but stilll tasty. You could leave out the Tabasco.  And I've been meaning to try adding herbs to the mix. Wonder what would be good with onions...

Sage with chicken/turkey.  rosemary and mint with lamb.  oregano/marjoram/parsley/(garlic!) with beef.  dill with [strong-flavored] fish.

A very quick salad for those of us that lo-carb and don't get enuf of our veggies in.

Small pieces of broccoli
small pieces of cauliflower
Cheddar cheese cut into small cubes (could use shredded)
Bacon - shredded
sunflower seeds (optional)

toss this with a vinegar/splenda/mayo dressing.   4 carbs max per serving


I am the original lazy cook but I do ok.  This is so good!

I buy the small bags of broccoli/caluiflower mix they sell at the store for veggie trays and use that.
I fry a whole pound of bacon at one time and keep it in the frig for when I need it.

sherry...
 
i have a variation on virtually the same recipe.  the hot version.

i microwave steam my veggies, either singley or in the same combo, place in casserole dish, sprinkle VERY LIBERALLY with pre-cooked crumbled bacon (i buy the Hormel's version in the jumbo package form the big box store and keep in fridge,  it stores well, compares favorably in price per cooked weight and substantially reduces the fat), overtop that with cubed cheddar and or the pre-shredded kind (jumbo bag of which i always have in the fridge), seeds are optional,  and then pop back in the micro until the cheddar is thoroughly melted through.  makes a whole meal for me, or a side dish for 3 or 4.

yummy, and virtually negligible carbs after fiber is discounted.

you can also steam cauliflower until soft, beat or puree thoroughly add butter or smart balance to taste as you puree, a touch of salt or salt sub and lots of seasoned pepper or coarse ground black pepper and serve in lieu of potatoes.  i like to add a good bit of grated parmesan.  i like this with pork loin chops cooked with sesame oil, or with cumin and garlic.

no bake lemon cheesecake

this is really tasty

1 box sf lemon pudding
1 block cream cheese 8 0z
1 cup water 1 cup half n half *could of use 2 cups hoods carb milk*


put in pie pan,chill.

You could add some fresh berries of your choice on top.

Of course this isn't a Famous New York Style or even a ripped off version of the Cheescake factory..
but it does the job!

 ;)

I found this thingy in an article about healthy breakfasts for people who don't like to eat in the mornings. It's ideal for the forumite lifestyle, since you make it in the time it takes to load a youtube vid, and you gulp it down without using cumbersome forks, spoons, or other instruments that take motor skills and distract you from reading and writing. It's crammed with nutrients - lots of protein, no added sugar - and will keep you from getting hungry for at least a couple of hours. And of course, it's very tasty! I have at least one of these a day now instead of cookies or ice cream.

Swedish breakfast milkshake

1 tablespoon soy flour
2 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 smallish, ripe banana
3 decilitres milk (1 1/4 cups)

Put everything in a mixer and blend it.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Edit: found out how many decilitres there are to a cup   :)

It is quite yummy!  I especially love the maple syrup icing and the use of brown sugar in the bread.  The loaf is usually gone by the end of the day at my hubby's office.

The bed and breakfast website has a lot of yummy-looking recipes on it.  I can't wait to try some of the other treats.
