No-Flour Pumpkin Brownies


No Flour Chocolate Brownies (Made With Pumpkin!) Mmm! Yummmm!  These hit the spot for that little bit of something carb-y and sweet when “dieting”.  No flour, you’d never guess!  The peppermint I added really makes these heavenly.  This ended up being very soft and goey, but we liked it that way, so yummy. Not the […]

Chicken Seasoning

Whipped this seasoning together for chicken last night and it was really pretty good as far as chicken seasonings go. I mean, for everyday eating, especially on our diet program where its all chicken, chicken, chicken and I’m always looking for different flavoring options to alleviate the boredom. Two tablespoons of each: Onion Powder Paprika […]

Layered Salad

Scrumptious Layered Salad The first salad I ever made (many years ago…), when I was still a teenager and first learning to cook (really cook), and, boy, was it a hit!  This recipe has been with me ever since and continues to garner rave reviews from my dinner guests.  Aside from it’s scrumptious taste, it’s […]

Chicken Liver Paté Spread

Chicken Liver Paté Made this once in the apartment at Martin Ave I think when I was having a little dinner party, maybe Christmas, with Mrs P over.  Also made it one of the early Christmas’s at Park Ridge.  Recipe never got entered into this collection until July 20, 2013 when I stumbled across it […]

Homemade Baking Powder Recipe

Homemade Baking Powder Store bought baking powder is not allowed when you are eating clean because 1) it contains aluminum which is toxic to the body, and 2) corn starch is the main ingredient in commercial baking powder, and cornstarch is also not allowed on a clean eating program (as I learned on my body […]

Homemade Deli Chicken Seasoning

Delicious when served cold! Made this today – February 15, 2015. Chris really enjoyed. Make again for him.  Update:  While I was somewhat indifferent to this recipe when I first made it, I ate some of the cold chicken out of the fridge last night and I found that this seasoning is really, really good […]

Teriyaki Sauce

I get so frustrated when I find a delicious sounding recipe for a Teriyaki dish, and then when you read the ingredients list you find store-bought teriyaki sauce. Who needs a recipe to tell them to buy a bottle of teriyaki sauce, pour it over meat and cook? That’s not  my idea of a recipe.  […]
