I got this idea from a Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook, and while I doubt my Publix pita bread would meet with her approval, it's a really good idea. I can think of all sorts of modifications. Next time if I feel like getting fancy, I may try adding some shredded chicken and spinach.

Quick, easy, moist cookies adapted from a double-chocolate recipe from the West Wind Pony Club Cookbook.

Makes 30-36 cookies.

Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease two cookie sheets.

Cream together:

2/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Add and mix vigorously:

1 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Sift together in a separate bowl:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose white flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients into wet a bit at a time, stirring well.

Add:

1 cup pecan pieces

Drop 2" balls into cookie sheets, leaving 2" spaces between cookies.

Bake 9 minutes… cookies will still be soft and a bit shiny when done. Wait maybe 5 minutes then transfer with a thin spatula or other thin lifter to wire rack.

I'm trying to watch what I eat and lose some weight, but I still have my chocolate cravings. My biggest issue with desserts and my goal is that I won't eat "fake" foods - things like fat free cool whip (or any cool whip for that matter) or alternative sugars (no splenda, truvia, nutrasweet, etc).

I modified a mug brownie recipe based on what I had in my pantry and came up with this. It tastes rich and chocolatey, but won't kill my waistline. And it has only real ingredients.

This is less a recipe to make on its own as a meal idea to be made for when you're batch cooking in the slow cooker or stove top or oven, and are browning huge amounts of mince (ground meat) in the morning or around noon and are noticing you need to eat but also need to finish the prep for the batch cooking DAMMIT!

This meal idea is low-spoon, almost-instant, high-protein, doesn't dirty any more dishes except for a fork, requires only 2 EGGS in additional ingredients, and is pretty much guaranteed to fix your hunger pangs within 5 minutes, give or take.

~2 tablespoons olive oil
4 chicken breasts
1 cup chopped onion
Mushrooms (I used canned, lord knows how much; not many?)
~3 tablespoons garlic (um, ish? I think? THERE WAS A LOT OF MINCED GARLIC, OKAY?)
~1/2 teaspoon pink salt
1 cup chicken broth
Rosemary, um, tablespoon or so ground? Maybe more?
3 pinches sumac
~2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon (or so) cornstarch

Turn heat to medium high; let oil heat up. Drop chicken breasts and onion in to cook. Get chicken white on both sides; add in garlic and rosemary, saute for a minute or so and then add sumac, and lemon juice and then wait another minute and add in the broth and the mushrooms. (I would actually have added another 1/2 cup to a full cup of liquid, because I really liked the flavors and would have liked more broth/gravy left once I added the cornstarch.)

Turn to medium-low and cover for 15 minutes. Poke it occasionally.

If you are not a paranoid bitch, another five minutes at this point probably would be fine. I went for another 10, then diced the chicken, took some of the broth, blended it with cornstarch, blended it into the broth, and let it thicken as I added the chicken back.

We served this over slightly-sticky rice that had garlic and onion powder, a bit of lemon pepper seasoning, and some coconut milk in it.

I recently discovered that it's actually quite easy (and cheap) to make your own Daim/Dajm/Dime bars at home, and thought I'd share.

Ingredients:

50 grams of butter
1 deciliter (1/2 cup?) of powdered almonds
1 deciliter (1/2 cup?) of sugar
few table spoons of dark syrup (optional)
milk chocolate (I recommend Ikea's milk chocolate if you can get it, because it tastes exactly like Marabou's chocolate, but is much cheaper)

all you need is one pot and about 15 minutes )

When I go to tag sales, I looooove browsing through the old cookbooks. My favorites are old church cookbooks, and I tend to bias my purchases in that direction. However, there was a tag sale a couple weeks ago and I picked up an old Pampered Chef cookbooklet (small cookbook). In it, there was this awesome recipe for pan-fried herbed chicken with an artichoke topper that looked tasty. I didn't have all the ingredients so I modified my recipe to fit that. My modified recipe below the cut!
