@FANCYQTR I never tried this cake. My friend bathed his dog with Dawn.

That looks good with the angel food cake. Will it raise like the angel food if you put it in that kind of pan?

A friend of mine also made muffins with the white cake mix and said they were really good.


I was going through a book on Natural Pet Cures. For getting rid of fleas it says to spray the area with Dawn and water and to get rid of them on your dog bathe them with Dawn, let it sit before rinsing, then do a final rinse with vinegar. I did use regular dog shampoo on Cassie the last time, but rinsed with vinegar. I think that might be a nice way to try. Other things it said to use was salt on carpets, Skin so Soft on pets.

Great. I am going to try it.

I went to some farmer's markets today. The first one had some balsamic vinegar in light, dark, and different flavors. I tasted the light (clear) and that was really yummy. I already had two bottles, so didn't get any.

Here's a recipe that looks pretty good from Taste of Home. (I just bookmarked a bunch, but this one looked healthy): www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/oven-roa

That sounds like a nice cleaner. I wonder how well it would work on the microwave. Everything is always splattering all over in there.

Another cost saving idea is using vinegar and Dawn to clean your bathroom. Take a empty spray bottle and put 1 and 1/12 cup of vinegar and 1 tbsp. Dawn (must be Dawn) detergent. Put in microwave in microwave safe bowl for 40 seconds and your ready to clean. For extra stubborn soap scum, let the Dawn /vinegar mixture sit for a few minutes and then scrub Pour boiling water over the stubborn areas and scrub again, they will easily wipe away.

Let's see if we can share some healthy and cost saving recipes in this forum, okay? We all need to save money these days, right? Below is one I have tried and it is very good.
Mexican Pizzas:

1 can refried beans fat free
6 St Joseph Flax Whole Wheat Pita ( found at Walmart usually)
1 cup salsa
1-1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1 1/2 cup frozen corn


bake pitas on cookie sheet in 375 oven turn every 5 minutes (until they are firm enough to hold without folding, about 15 minutes) depending on the oven. This step is a personal preference, if you don't mind a softer crust you can cook for less time.
Top each pita with refried beans. Next add the salsa, approximately large spoonful per pita
Layer the corn.( I like the thaw the corn a bit first but your don't have too) and top with the cheese.

Bake in oven about 5 -10 minutes until cheese has melted to desired consistency.

Leftover pizzas can be reheated easily in the oven.

Cauliflower fauxtato salad

(below is what I did, but you can just use your favorite recipe and merely replace boiled/baked tators with the equal amount of cauliflower._ga-)

I nuked a 10oz pkg of cauliflower (in a steamable bag), and let it cool. When it was room temperature, I chopt it into small bitesize in a bowl. I then added about 1/4C Mayo + 1/2C my own homemade Greek yogurt (yay!) and splashed a little milk into it. I then chopt small dice sweet onion and red bell pepper I had extra of in the fridge; about 1/4C combined but you can do it to taste. It adds flavor and color. A heaping spoonful of sweet pickle relish adds more color as well as a touch of sweet to balance the yogurt

I sprinkled just a hint of garlic granuales and celery seed, and 3 quick squirts of yellow mustard. I stirred it all together, added a sprinkle of paprika and set it to chill in the fridge. I'll make adjustments as needed prior to serving, when it has matured a couple hours. I do this for my regular potato salad as well.

May the forks be with you.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

I sure like the sound of that.

It reminds me of a stand-alone taco salad my Mom makes, starting back about 1967. All the ready items are set aside in separate bowls with lids. You put chips in the bowl and load your own lettuce, olives, onion, jalapeno, cheese, etc. When you're done, the bowls get resealed, the chip bag gets clamped shut... leftovers are just like the original meal. hahaha Would they be called leftovers then?

I'm saving this recipe. It sounds like it might make a good lettuce wrap enchilada style. Too Cool.

Just saw this on on FB. Guess since she said share it is okay for on here. It is from Judy Long's page.
ENCHILADA BAKE ~ Low Carb
💕For more great recipes please FRIEND me here at
www.facebook.com/jjskinnyfiber
Crust:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon Taco Seasoning
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 ounce tortilla chips, finely crushed *
Beat or whisk the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the seasoning; mix well. Stir in the cheese and crushed chips; mix well. Grease a 9x13" baking dish or line with parchment paper; spread the cheese mixture evenly over the bottom. Bake at 350, 35 minutes or until browned, but not too dark. Let stand 5-10 minutes before adding the topping.
* 1/4 ounce is about 4-5 small round tortilla chips. I used the unflavored white corn kind. They only add about 4 carbs to the whole recipe.
Topping:
1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon Taco Seasoning
1/2 batch Red Enchilada Sauce (about 1 cup)
8 ounces pepper-jack cheese, shredded
Brown the hamburger; drain fat. Stir in the seasoning and enchilada sauce. Spread over the crust. Top with the cheese. Bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly.
Makes 8 servings

One of my favorite ways to get healthy with canned soups is to add fresh or canned vegetables to it. I know that sounds funny, but playing with some herbs & spices I can end up with quite a pot of soup and counteract all the fat and salt in the one original can of soup.

Another trick to get rid of some of the excess salt in canned soup is to add a couple of big chunks of raw potato to it prior to cooking. As it cooks the tator will absorb excess salt and can be discarded before serving.

Too cool, eh?

Sounds like a great idea when people find them. I usually end up finding them on the Spark Recipes and start from there, but then I will often just get to making it the way I kind of remember because I am too lazy to look up the recipe again. (That's what I do with tortilla soup). I do sometimes find recipes other places and will pass on if they turn out good.

I don't really have any recipes. I HATE to cook, so I have a lot of salads or cottage cheese, things you don't need to cook! In the winter I have a lot of soups, but they usually come from a can, every once in awhile I make my own, but I don't really have a recipe. I just cook the noodles in the microwave, and then add broth, and chicken and sometimes carrots. I am just making it for myself, so it doesn't have to be great as long as it is easy!

I would love to share, but can't say I have any "healthy" ones. I just cook what we like, and it is generally good for us, but made from scratch and no real recipe, unless it's something like bread, cake, etc. So not a healthy recipe per se. I'm a "by guess, by gosh" cook with most of our meals. emoticon
