When I started this blog I had to promise that I would not share certain family recipes, zucchini bread was one of them. My Grandma’s recipe is simply the best.
I love muffins. I am a little picky though. I prefer homemade muffins. Somehow store bought and bakery muffins are not what they used to be. Many are jumbo sized. Most have the texture of a cupcake, not a muffin.
Yesterday I was going to make coleslaw for dinner. You know, the easy way out using just cabbage and store bought slaw dressing. Then I thought about it, surely I must have something in the house to make it different.
For this pasta salad I was going for high fiber and a Southwest flare. I used Dreamfields pasta which has a good amount of fiber and a low glycemic rating. Add in the black beans and you have a high fiber dish.
Our family was recently spread out for over a week. For a few days we even had all three boys in three different states! Feeding the troops while on vacation can definitely be a challenge.
Let me start by saying I love to bake, and usually I do not make baked goods light or healthy often. Baked goods are treats and meant to be made with all the good stuff like real butter. This recipe, however, is a somewhat healthier cookie.
When I lived in Germany I discovered Quark. It is a wonderfully versatile dairy product. My favorite way of serving it was with fresh fruit. So when I recently rummaged through my fridge and decided to empty several containers I was thrilled to come up with something that tasted as good as Quark.
