Carbs for some people no good. For some of us we can polish off a whole plate of rice when it is presented to us. So an an effort to cut calories, I picked up this bag to see if it was any good and if it can replace rice in a dish. I know Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower can be used for a number of other things, but I’ll let the readers comment on their best uses of this product. For only 25 calories per serving and $2.49, it was worth a try….
Damn you Starbucks. Making people all pumpkin crazy. It’s gotten so bad that almost everything in starting Labor Day weekend will start transforming into pumpkin. Again, not all of us have Starbucks budgets, but you do have to admit their stuff is pretty good. This is a great recipe fresh out of the oven, or one to bring to work if you can’t eat all of it at once. I recommend bringing it to work as well. After a day or two, the quality one this one heads downhill fast. It doesn’t have the normal fat content that most scones do, so as long as its warm, you really won’t notice the difference. After 48 hours it will give you the confession of staleness. Be a Betty and please share with your coworkers, friends or whoever is around. They’ll thank you for being a friend.…
Breakfast. The time when I have no time to think about much, especially without coffee in my system. While packing lunches for the next day, this is quick to put together in order to have something yummy the next morning that does not come out of a box from the freezer. Although this Betty will not condone that behavior. Totally acceptable from time to time….
There are times I don’t enjoy cooking. Sometimes it’s really nice to just be taken out somewhere. I had a recipe similar to this at my local Japanese restaurant, instead of Thai Sweet Chili, the used an orange liquor.
I, like the author of Skinnytaste, have never had Bone Fish Grill’s Bang Bang shrimp. From what it sounds like its super high calories, fried, mayonnaise and from what people say it’s outstanding. So I gave this recipe a whirl. It goes great with both salad or rice….
If you’ve ever been lazy, perhaps you’ve walked into Costco or some other wholesaler and bought a package of muffins, only to examine them and realize there are enough calories in one muffin to last an entire day. Skinnytaste to the rescue with this quick easy recipe. They are fantastic the first couple days. They freeze well if you are not going to get to them right away. With the milk content, I’d recommend leaving them no more than a couple days….
Some of my cookbooks are ones that will be cherished and unopened on a coffee table in the house. Others look like the have waged kitchen warfare. In addition to the iconic Betty Crocker books that line my bookshelf, this is one book that deserves to also be a “Betty.” A funny story about this one:
One Christmas, I asked my then boyfriend for a series of cookbooks as a gift suggestion. One of which included Gina Homolka’s The Skinnytaste Cookbook. Upon opening the gift it was difficult for my then boyfriend (now husband) to not see the joy in my face. With a big “Thank you” he promptly replied, “I’m glad your happy, just don’t make me any of that crap.”…
