Chocolate Coffee Treat

15 Oct

IMG_5318

Im still trying to lose weight but I need something delicious.

This is my mid-afternoon or late-night treat.

1 10 ounce cup of delicious coffee

1 heaping teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

A lot of whipped cream from the can

And if you need to sweeten your coffee use one stevia. I don’t.

Make your coffee

Pour it into a mug

Add the cocoa

Add the Stevia now if you are using it.

Mix well.

Add the whipped cream.

I love this and that’s why I posted such a simple indulgence.

Around 40 calories and that’s if you are heavy on the whipped cream.

Savory Oatmeal

6 Apr

Don’t say,”yuck”, this is delicious.

I got this recipe from a Stop and Shop free magazine.

1 1/2 cups water

1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

1/4 cup oatmeal milk

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese plus more for sprinkling on the top.

1/2 teaspoon corse black pepper

1 to 2 tablespoons cheese curds

1 tablespoon capers

Combine the water, oats, thyme and salt.

Bring to a boil

Reduce to simmer for 3 to 5 minutes

Stir occasionally.

Remove from the heat and add the milk, cheese and pepper.

This is enough for two portions.

Top with the cheese curds, parmesan cheese and capers.

The second time I made it I topped it with a fried egg.

This is so good.

Onion Pancakes

29 Mar

I have made this recipe three times and every time I eat too many.

You can make them small (1-2 teaspoons) for appetizers or 1/4 cup dollops for larger ones.

I make the big ones because they are faster and I am a big eater.

1 cup all-purpose flour plus 2 tablespoons more

2 teaspoons white sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 1/2 cups chopped onions. I used the bag of frozen onions

1 cup milk

1/2 cup canola oil

Mix all the dry ingredients together.

Add the onions

Add the milk and mix well

Heat the oil

Drop the batter in the oil and make the size you want.

Add more oil if you need it

Drain the cooked pancakes on a paper towel

Sere with hot sauce, ketchup, sour cream or applesauce.

I LOVE these light pancakes and they take only 20 minutes.

Keep warm in a low oven.

Thank you Pinterest for another delicious recipe.

These are the easiest waffles you will ever make.

One Duncan Hines chocolate cake mix

Follow the directions on the back of the box.

Put the desired amount of batter in your waffle maker.

Cook till done.

Serve with great big strawberries and strawberry syrup.

My grandchildren loved them.

I did dust the leftover waffles with a combination of two tablespoons cocoa powder and four tablespoons confectionary sugar.

The kids were eating them like cookies.

26 Feb

unnamed

One small wrap

One fried egg

One slice of cheese

1/2 cup cooked pulled pork

One teaspoon sour cream

One teaspoon cilantro, mango salsa

A couple of splashes of hot sauce

Just layer everything on the wrap

Garnish with diced scallions

This is my new best breakfast, lunch and dinner.

One clove of thin sliced garlic

One tablespoon olive oil  or butter

3 large eggs

1/4 cup 1/2 and 1/2 milk

1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper

Two slices of cooked  crumbled bacon

One cubed avocado

One large handful of fresh baby spinach

One slice of Swiss cheese

One slice of Americana cheese

Heat the oil and add the garlic

Cook till it is soft

Mix the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper till it is pale yellow

Add the bacon to the pan with the garlic and oil

Cook till it is warm

Add the eggs and start stirring

I just slowly stir my eggs until they are cooked

Put the handful of spinach on top and stir just to combine everything

Transfer everything to a plate

Top with the avocado and cheese

Microwave for 30 to 40 seconds till the cheese is melted

This is excellent.

Adjust your salt and pepper to your liking

I did add just a little hot sauce.

It was so good I didn’t even need a bagel.

 

Eggs with Cheese Pie

17 Jan

unnamed

I am lucky enough to have a wonderful neighbor, Maria.

She baked a homemade Greek cheese pie and gave me two big slices.

I ate one immediately and saved one.

I love to play with food and I made myself laugh this morning because

I think I am funny.

2 fried eggs

One piece of cheese pie

2 slices salami

2 scoops cooked mushrooms

First I ate the eyes (eggs)

Then the nose (cheese pie)

Then the  mouth (salami)

Then the mushrooms

This was a great breakfast.
