Woo Hoo, visitors! Soooo good to see every one of you
Ky...wow...long time no see you! My Mrs Potato Head just emerged in the last couple wks, you're not too deep into oblivion...yet! I always add a 'yet' to statements like that, esp if they're about myself!! Hi YB, OnaMi, Beaching It, MrsG, Cambie...WOW...it's party time and I'm late. Sorry!Brought along this SB choc cake to try and redeem myself...how's that? Here's the recipe if you're interested. Need to let this be 2 portions tho to be truly beachy:
CAROLYN'S 3-MINUTE FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon ff half & half
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon butter, softened
Spray a 2-cup measuring cup or small bowl with cooking spray. Add the egg and beat it with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until a smooth batter forms. Microwave on HIGH 30-90 seconds/until it puffs up and no longer looks wet in the center.
All's well in my neck of the woods, food-wise that is, and I've started pedalling on schedule again, doing my handweights but haven't been walking
bad me. Attempted to get that schedule going this wk but each and every day something messed me up and having lost my walking buddy, well, I just didn't walk. Vowing to get in two sessions next week; have dh home the next 3 days tho so wish me luck
Through all the recent changes I have to say I'm with Ky...I will NEVER leave the beach, it works when I work it. Period. The end! Breaking myself of the extra healthy carbs I'd let myself have lately---mostly in the form of breads. Been hard--find myself REALLY wanting those bready items but have been withstanding the urge. Whew...And YES, Ky, please share the wild rice recipe...I LOVE wild rice and cherries and pecans...sounds like I'll have to use strict portion control with this!
I haven't been trying many new recipes lately. Too busy, but have been making do with lots of tried and true dishes from last year. A little late to share, but I made a great cranberry salad around Christmas. Used unsweetened frozen cranberries and added orange peel , some orange juice concentrate and splenda. Cooked this until the berries popped then let it cool. It thickened into something wonderful to eat! Should have added toasted pecans but didn't. Will next time for sure.
Is anyone having this problem---when typing here on the screen, the screen jumps to where you can't see what you're typing???? DRIVING me over the edge so I'll stop for tonight. So glad you all stopped in. Hope each of you are super-committed and having a major-great 2010 so far. The beach rocks in winter! Love you.
