Super Moist Dark Chocolate Cake

Posted on

From Microgalactic!

 

There has always been a weakness for chocolate cake in our house!  Especially the super dark rich kind.  My son always wanted chocolate cake with strawberry ice cream for his birthday.  This recipe brings back those memories!

Just for your information, 160 degrees C is 320 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sunday Pleasures: Healthy Carrot Muffins

Posted on

From Fly Me To The Clouds!

 

I love anything with carrots!  Carrot muffins are my favorite.  The problem has been with carrot muffins, they tend to be heavy in fat.  This recipe looks good in that regards.  Less fat due to the yogurt.  I love how it looks too.  Dark and spicy and rich.  I can’t wait to try this!

20 Healthy Trail Mix Recipes to Mix Yourself

Posted on

From Daily Recreation!

 

The other day, I had been running from pillar to post.  I had forgotten to eat anything for breakfast.  No lunch either.  So about 4 p.m. I weakly walked into a local HEB(Texas Supermarket).  I didn’t want just fruit.  That would just spike my blood sugar for a little bit.

 

I needed protein and fat.  Lots of it!  I thought why not Trail Mix?  I went to that area.  What they had was pretty disappointing.  The mixes all had some form of candy in them.  Chocolate chips.  M&Ms.  Not my kind of thing.  I eventually did buy a bag and picked out all the chips.

 

I decided that I was going to start making my mix and taking a bag with me when I went out.  The next day, I saw a this post.  Talk about coincidence!

Sunday Rewind: Mixing It Up With Balsamic Vinegar

Posted on

 

From Rantings of an Amateur Cook!

 

 

I love balsamic vinegar.  It is the most divine type of all the vinegars. Sweet and smoky.  It gives dishes an added depth and richness.  I use it in my Black Bean Chili.  Incredible.  One of my favorite desserts is sliced strawberries served over yogurt.  Sublime.  Mmmm.This dish looks like a great addition to our dinners!

Meatless Monday: Slow Cooker Seasonal Vegetable Soup W/ White Beans & Sausages

Posted on Updated on

 

I don’t know what the weather is like by you, but here on the Gulf Coast, looking out of the window, it’s gloomy with a drizzle of rain. And it is pretty darn damp. Being on an island I do expect it to be damp, but this is bone chilling damp.

So I saw this recipe that I had saved to make. This is a completely vegan dish. I know it has sausages in the title, but they are meatless. I hope you give it a try.

Enjoy!

Roasted Root Vegetable Galette

Posted on

From Bella’s Belly!

 

One of the most wonderful things to eat are roasted vegetables!  When you roast vegetables, the flavor is much more intense.  And the roasting caramelizes the vegetables, so that they taste sweet.

 

I never had them before I became a vegetarian.  Once I had them, I was hooked and now we have them several times a month.  One of the perks of going vegetarian was finding new ways to prepare food!

Scandinavia: Princess Cake (6/21)

Posted on

From The Daily Cupboard!

 

I shouldn’t be doing this, but I can’t help myself.  I had told myself that after New Years Day, I would be good.  But I saw this photo.  And I saw the name.  “Princess Cake.”

 

It looks like a challenge.  I have never done marzipan before.  And what is marzipan?  Marzipan is an almond and sugar paste that is used to ice cakes and other pastries or sculpted into a variety of shapes to be eaten as candy or used as cake decorations. I After the ingredients are mixed, the paste reaches a consistency of dough or soft rubber and can be rolled, shaped, cut, or molded.  Sounds like playdoh!  What fun!
