1 lime, cut in half

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, sliced
16 ounces extra lean ground chicken
2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt

2 tablespoons water

I didn't have any Pita bread on hand so I sliced a whole wheat Hogie
roll in half length wise . Hollowed out some of the centers and made
open face sandwiches. I only shredded enough greens for the number of
sandwichs I made. The left over meat mixture I saved for another day.

Serving Size : Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell
1 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup water
1/4 cup raspberry flavored Jell-OR mix
2 1/2 cups raspberries, *
1 cup whipped cream
Dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

*Two large containers from Costco is perfect for a nice FULL pie and

Preheat oven to 450F (230C).

Line an unpricked, unbaked pastry shell with a double thickness of
heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake the pastry shell in the preheated oven for 8
minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Optionally, arrange 1/2 cup
chocolate chips evenly across bottom of finished crust. Cool on a wire rack.

Place the sugar, cornstarch, and water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat
until the sugar and cornstarch dissolve and the mixture thickens, about 10
minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the raspberry flavored gelatin mix.

Optionally, melt chips in the microwave and drizzle chocolate over the top.
Pipe or spread whipped cream decoratively across the top and garnish with

Tip: Stabilize Whipped Cream

Have you ever watched whipped cream collapse on a cake or other dessert,
slowly sliding off the sides as it warms? It's frustrating to assemble a
pretty dessert only to watch its whipped cream topping shrink and dribble
away as soon as it comes out of the fridge.

Fortunately there are some easy precautions to take when using whipped cream
in desserts for parties or just for when you know your cupcakes will be
sitting out for a little while.

The easiest way to stabilize whipped cream is to add a tablespoon of
cornstarch for every cup of cream. Whip the cream to soft peaks before
adding the cornstarch. Beat until the peaks are somewhat firmer.

If you're sweetening your whipped cream, use powdered sugar instead of
granulated; most powdered sugar has some cornstarch in it and it will have
the same effect.

Cornstarch can give the cream a slightly grainy taste, however, so if you
are more enterprising, try using gelatin. Soften the gelatin in a bit of
warm water and stir until it dissolves, then beat into the cream before it
hardens again.

Here's How:

Soak plain gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes. Dissolve by placing it in a
container over a small pot of simmering water.

Whip the cream until barely stiff. Add melted gelatin all at once to cream
during whipping. Stop whipping when cream forms soft peaks.

For 1 cup of cream use 1/2 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 1 tablespoon cold

For 2 cups of cream use 1 teaspoon gelatin soaked in 2 tablespoons cold

For 6 cups of cream use 1 tablespoon soaked in 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoon
cold water.

Note: This was a wonderful dessert. Photo by Art Guyer.

Dave commented: The Pie sounded good Art. I think I will take the filling minus the
whipped cream and use it in some fried fruit pie's.

Hi Guy's

I was watching the television cooking show Chopped the other night. One of
the contestants wrapped some filling in a collard leaf and then cooked
it as part of their dish. I have used other veggies as wrap material, but
never collards. Being from the south I had to try it.

Yesterday I happened across the following recipe. I'm trying it tonight.

Collard-Wrapped Burritos

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10
Categories : Mexican, Collards, Quinoa

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ---------- --------------------------------
1 teaspoon fine grain salt
10 large collard leaves, thickest part of stem trimmed (see Note)
1 3/4 cups water
1 cup quinoa
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for pan
1 (20-ounce) can black beans
1 carrot, shredded
3 scallions, chopped
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 lb reduced-fat sharp cheddar, shredded (about 3 cups)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a 9x13-inch ovenproof serving pan
with olive oil. Bring a pot of water to a boil; add a few pinches of
salt. Submerge the collards for 2 minutes in boiling. Drain and set the
collard leaves aside.

In a medium saucepan with a lid, add 1 3/4 cups water and the
quinoa. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Set
aside and leave covered.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over
medium heat. Sauté the garlic, cumin, and coriander for 1 minute.
Add the beans, carrot, scallions, tomatoes, bell pepper, salt, and
pepper. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from
heat and let cool. Add a splash of water if mixture gets too dry.

Lay one collard flat, vein side up. Spoon 2 tablespoons of quinoa
then 3 tablespoons of the bean mixture onto the trimmed end of the
collard and sprinkle with cheese. Fold each side over the filling and
roll like a burrito. Repeat with remaining collard leaves. Arrange the
burritos in the serving pan and bake, covered with foil, for 20
minutes or until heated through.

• When selecting collard greens, choose the larger leaves that have
the least holes in them and aren’t shriveled at the tops.
• If you can’t find large enough collard leaves, you can secure the
wraps with a toothpick to prevent the filling from falling out. Or, use
slightly less filling and tell everyone not to limit themselves to just
• The quinoa and bean filling can be cooked one day in advance;
store covered in the refrigerator.
• Substitute or omit the cheese for a vegan dish.

Lentils Puttanesca

Recipe By :
Serving Size : serves 4
Categories : Lentils, Italian

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup brown lentils, rinsed
1 cup pearled farro

1 tbls olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tps red pepper flakes
2 tbls tomato paste
1/2 cup dried mushrooms
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes
16 black olives, pitted and chopped
2 tbls capers, chopped
1/2 lemon (optional)
chopped parsley or basil for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste

Bring a kettle of water to a boil.

Place the lentils in heat-proof bowl. Pour boiling water over them,
covering by one inch. Place a dinner plate over the bowl to cover and
set aside. (You can do this in the morning to save time.)

Heat the oil over medium-high in a large sauté pan. Add the onion,
garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for five minutes, stirring often.
Add the tomato paste and stir well to combine. Cook for two
minutes, until tomato paste is fragrant and has darkened in color.

Drain and rinse the lentils, then add them to the pan, along with the
mushrooms. Cook for one minute, stirring often. Add the tomatoes,
plus two cups of water.
Lower heat to medium, cover the pan, and simmer for 20 minutes,
stirring every five minutes. Add additional water if needed.
While the lentils are simmering, prepare the farro according to
package directions.
Once the lentils are tender, remove from heat, season with black
pepper and stir in the olives and capers, then squeeze in the lemon
Serve immediately, over the cooked farro, and garnish with chopped
fresh parsley or basil.

Note:Use dried lentils in this recipe. If you only have canned, rinse
them and skip the soaking steps. You would also omit the 2 cups of
water if you use canned lentils.

Farro, also called emmer wheat, is a whole grain that resembles in
appearance and taste a cross between barley and wheatberries. It is
available in the whole grains aisle, and I buy it in bulk at Costco. No
farro? Sub barley, wheat berries or save time and serve this over
whole-wheat pasta.

If you're watching your sodium levels, you can cut down on the
capers and olives, but that's what gives this dish its unique flavor.

Herbed Zucchini Soup

Recipe By : EatingWell Magazine
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 pounds zucchini (about 3 medium), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon or dill or 1 teaspoon dried
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

This is one of the few soups that make the cut in summer. Serve it chilled
to take the edge off a hot August night.

Tip: Hot liquids can splatter out of a blender when it's turned on. To avoid
this, remove the center piece of the lid. Loosely cover the hole with a
folded kitchen towel and turn the blender on. Better airflow will keep the
contents from spewing all over the kitchen.

Place broth, zucchini and tarragon (or dill) in a medium saucepan; bring to
a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered, until the
zucchini is tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Puree in a blender (see Tip), in
batches if necessary, until smooth. Return the soup to the pan and heat over
medium-high, slowly stirring in cheese until it is incorporated. Remove from
heat and season with salt and pepper.

Serve hot or chilled.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Serve chilled or

David's Comment: You must be a mind reader. I have a couple zucchini that
are getting soft. I was thinking of adding them to a potato-cabbage soup,
but will try this instead. For some reason I don't use Dill very often so
this will be different. I think I will add some diced and rendered bacon for
a little extra flavor.

A lot of us have tried and true standby's that we use on a regular
basis. We forget that what is common for us, isn't to other people. A
friend stopped by, just about dinner time yesterday. They committed that
something smelled good, so I invited them to sit down with me. I was
having a simple meal of Salmon, pasta and salad. They went crazy over the
pasta side, which I use a lot. They had never tasted the simple sauce I
used. That's when I determined to share some of my old standby's.

Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl

Recipe By : © EatingWell Magazine
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups instant brown rice
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin (see Ingredient note)
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
6 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced

Ingredient note: Mirin is a low-alcohol rice wine essential to Japanese cooking. Look for it in your supermarket with the Asian or gourmet ingredients. An equal portion of sherry or white wine with a pinch of sugar may be substituted for mirin.

Prepare instant brown rice according to package directions.

Pour broth into a heavy medium saucepan, along with sugar, soy sauce and mirin. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low.

Stir egg whites and whole egg in a small bowl until just mixed. Add chicken to the simmering broth. Gently pour in the egg mixture, without stirring. Sprinkle scallions on top. When the egg starts to firm up, after about 3 minutes, stir it with chopsticks or a knife. (The chicken will be cooked by now). Divide the rice among 4 deep soup bowls and top with the chicken mixture.

Active Time: 15 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes

Yield: 4 servings, 1 1/2 cups each


Here's the quintessence of Japanese home cooking: an aromatic, protein-
rich broth served over rice. Admittedly, Japanese cooking leans heavily on
sugar - for a less traditional taste, you could reduce or even omit the sugar.

Over the last few years I've become an Onion fanatic. I rarely ate
onions as a child or teenager. Limited to raw white or yellow
onions,diced or sliced on Hamburgers or Tacos and liver and onions. Then
I discovered the Sweet Onions and cooked onions. Now I add them to

My understanding is that colonial America ate a lot of them.

Welsh Onion Cake

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6 slices
Categories : Onion, Potato,

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ----------- --------------------------------
100 g unsalted butter, melted and warm
500 g white onions, sliced
1 rosemary sprig
1 kg Desiree or Maris Piper potatoes

1.Heat about a quarter of the butter in a large pan, set over a medium
heat. Sweat the onions with a little salt and the rosemary sprig.
Slowly cook on a gentle heat with a lid on for about 20 minutes. Remove
rosemary and set aside.

2.Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Peel the potatoes and
immediately cut into wafer-thin slices directly into a bowl containing
the rest of the warm butter. Season with salt and pepper. The thinner
the potatoes, the better the dish will be. Do not wash them once they
are sliced, as you want all of the starch to stick the potatoes

3.Line an ovenproof, non-stick frying pan with a round of baking
parchment. Layer potatoes neatly into the dish in a circle, slightly
overlapping. The bottom of the pan will become the presentation
side. Continue to pile in half of the potatoes, then add the melted
onions. On top of the onions continue with the potatoes until all
used up. Set the pan over a medium heat and gently begin to colour
the bottom of the dish for 5 mins, then transfer to the oven and cook
for 45-50 mins until the potatoes are soft.

4.Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Invert onto a
serving plate, then slice into wedges with a very sharp knife.

I looked Maris Piper potatoes up and they are a floury type. (Baking
as opposed to boiling) Potatoes.

I changed this in using an oven proof dish with no paper. No starting on
stovetop, but after potatoes are cooked soft in oven I sprinkled the top
with buttered bread crumbs and browned under the broiler.
