I like to sprinkle a few fresh chopped onions into many of my recipes. To save time, I cut up a whole onion and put the unused portion into a small container and put it in the refrigerator. When I need a little onion the next day, it's ready and so am I.
I love pasta, and make it frequently as it's a favorite in my household. The best part about my pasta however is my homemade sauce (and all the ooey gooey cheese!). I swap out the pasta with roasted eggplant or shirataki tofu noodles and have a very indulgent dinner for about 300 calories!
I usually buy my chicken with the bones in -- whether it's chicken breasts, thighs or an entire roaster.
Need a healthy, natural, sweet, and usable substitute for cooking? IN place of eggs or anything else unecessary? Go the Vegan route and use bananas. It only takes one, mush up your ingredients w/ your hands and it makes it fun!!!!
I love cooking and I always look for recipes in sparkpeople. I usually cook dishes that I can take leftovers for lunch the next day. My favorite recipes are slow cooking ones. I recently found crock pot liners that come right out after your food is ready leaving your crock pot spotless.
