Onions for Flavor

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.

Low Carb Substitues for Pasta part 1

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!

Try New Things

I try at least 1-2 new recipes every couple weeks. Sometimes it is something completely new and other times it is something that I have adapted to be more healthy. I don't even have the same meal more than once a month.

USE BANANAS!!!!

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!!!!

Making Pie Crust

When you have completed your pie crust dough, wrap it in saran wrap and refrigerate it for one/half hour. Doing that produces a more tender crust.

To set Rhubarb Jam

Soak lemon pips on a small amount of water overnight. The pectin dissolves in the water. Discard the pips and add the water to the jam boil as normal. It should help the jam to set easier.
