Sweet Potato Gnocchi – Childs Play

Sunday 12 February 2012 . (0)

There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of these tender pillow like dumplings;   this is comfort food at its best!  Many varieties of dumplings use only white flour, leaving them nutritionally void of nutrients.  These on the other hand, have the added benefit of the almightly sweet potato and ricotta cheese.  Now I wouldn’t.

Powdered Milk Whipped Topping

Monday 30 January 2012 . (0)

Who needs super fatty whipped cream or worse, transfat and sugar laden “whipped topping”?  News of powdered skim milk helping to reduce the incidence of painful gout flareups caused me to go in search of ways to work this cheap ingredient in.  This won’t fool the full fat palate nor provide the pleasure of it.

Mexican food is a family favourite around our house, but I get tired of the old stand by taco kits, and I am not a fan of all the non-ingredients in the taco seasonings.  However, it is a meal that both my 9 year old and 12 year old can manage to pull together themselves.  In favour.

A Healthier, Heart-ier pancake!

Monday 9 January 2012 . (1)

Warm and fluffy pancakes, a breakfast indulgence that many people just drool over. Topped with fruit, maple syrup, chocolate or whipped cream – they always sound so darn appealing.  I try to love them, really I do, but each time I  eat one – even just a plain old pancake with minimal syrup, I am left feeling sick.
