Its off season and life is moving slow.

Based on an idea from another thread how about some recipes?

Easy, hard, entere, dessert.

This one is so easy a kid can do it, but it is so good you will come across as a super hero.

Get an Oreo redy made pie crust

a box of sugar free chocolate jello pudding. (it MUST be sugar free)

Follow the directions on the box, BUT when it comes to adding the milk, cut it in half and then add heavy whipping cream instead.

You will end up with super fluffy chocolate mouse. The whipping cream will make it plenty sweet enough too.

People wont believe how good of a result you get from something so easy.

Layered Strawberry Dessert! So easy, but sooo good!

Bottom Layer: 2 cups crushed pretzels

1 1/2 sticks of softened butter or margarine

3 tablespoons of sugar

Mix and spread in a 9X13' pan. Bake for 8 mins. in a 400 degree oven.

Second Layer: 8 oz. package of softened cream cheese

1 cup of sugar

8 oz. container of Cool Whip (thawed at room temperature)

Blend together and spread on completely cooked bottom layer crust

Top Layer: 1 16 oz. Strawberry Jello

1 1/2 cups of boiling water (Mix these two with spoon until dissolved)

2 10 oz. packages frozen strawberries (Add to Jello mixture above, with a spoon until strawberries are thawed)

Spread on top of second layer and refrigerate. Slice when ready to serve and top with Cool Whip. Yummy!!!

Hint: You can lighten this up if you prefer, lol I do.

(ex. light Cool Whip, lowfat cream cheese, cut the butter and sugar amts. to your preferred taste. Splenda tends to make this recipie a little runny when used in place of regular sugar, but I have done half sugar/splenda just fine)

I like your descriptions. "Infallible Rice!", "Chocolate Delight" It's good to know it's impossible to ruin. At least it's as-advertised.

Let's go Filipino style here....

Chicken Adobo!

Saute some EVO and garlic

Once brown, throw in some chicken of your choice (I go boneless, skinless thighs...maybe 8 or so)

After the chicken cooks a bit and is no longer pink, throw enough vinegar and and soy sauce (I go 2 to 1 in favor of vinegar) to cover at least half the chicken, some S&P and a few bay leaves in the pot/pan.

Reduce to low and cook as long as your empty stomach will allow...at least 30 minutes.

Cook some rice, throw the chicken with some of the juices (au ju, if you will) on the rice and have at it

Oh yeah, and you're welcome cause its insane!!!

1 8 oz. container of cottage cheese

1/2 of 1 package of Taco seasoning mix (measure out)

1 can of refried beans

1 small jar of Taco sauce, hot or mild...your preference

Your choice of dippers...pita chips, tortillia chips, etc., you get the idea, any thick chip will do

Your toppings of choice...shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, shredded cheese, etc., the sky is the limit

Directions:

Mix the first four ingredients at room temperature together with an electric mixer until smooth

Take a pizza cooking sheet or a platter, spread the refried beans on the bottom, next spread the cheese mixture on top of the layer of refried beans, then top the cheese mixture with the jar of taco sauce spread evenly over, then cover with any toppings you like, set out a bowl of chips and your done.

Yeah, you gotta go dark meat with this. You can't make adobo with breast. It just doesn't taste right. And we're not talking any soy sauce! It's gotta be Maggi, man! I'm guessing EVO is "extra virgin olive oil"? Never heard it made with that, but that sounds good. We usually use the vegetable oil.

Agree on all parts...EVO and vege oil both work. Yeah, thighs and drum sticks are the way to go! Damn, I know what I am making for dinner tonight!

Im a big fan of what I call "Greek chicken and pasta". Really simple to make, which is why I can cook it.

All you do is take a chicken breast, put it in a ziploc bag, put a healthy amount of olive oil and greek seasoning in it and let it soak for 20ish minutes. With the pasta you cook it regular style then just add olive oil and greek seasoning like you would for tomato sauce.

I am trying that idea soon with steak, olive oil, and smoked pink himalayian salt.

LoL, don't presume codizzle. When I give recipies to others I cite them originally as they were given to me. When I make the recipies I have listed here I make the necessary adjustments to make sure they are healthy as per my nutritionist. lol However, sometimes low fat or fat free items are not always the best options, because where they make up for the taste is usually in added salt or sugar. But smart decisions to cut where ya can in a recipe can make all recipies a healthier option. Best thing is to eat a balance diet, and control portions. I should know I lost 26 lbs. last year. lol

Meant to say recipe thread* .. Just a little statement based off of the stuff posted so far..

And u are definitely right with the low fat/fat free statement....

Most items nowadays say low this or that but u have to read the nutritional guide to get the full story.. Drinks are the worst thing.. People drink soo much soda and just sugar in general its insane..
