Green Kitchen Stories » The healthy vegetarian recipe blog Vegan Recipes by Angela Liddon | Oh She Glows Strawberry Nutella Poptarts Friday, February 10, 2012 Strawberry Nutella Poptarts* In almost 24 hours I am going to be on live television. Seriously. I have no idea what I am going to wear or say….and I’m pretty sure the producer over at Good Morning Jacksonville has no idea what she has gotten herself into. While I may not have it all figured out just yet, I have decided that I will talk like Julia Child and only refer to myself in third person. First, take some store bought pie dough. Roll out the pie dough till it’s pretty thin. On one pie dough rectangle, spread a layer of Nutella. Cut a strawberry slice into the shape of a heart (slice a strawberry lengthwise into slices and then curve out the stop with a paring knife to create the heart shape). Using the strawberry heart as a pattern, cut out a heart shaped hole in the second piece of dough. Place the strawberry in the center of the nutella/strawberry jam mixture. Using a fork, seal the edges. Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown.

Homemade Mascarpone Cheese Homemade Mascarpone Cheese Much easier to make than it might seem, homemade mascarpone is a tastier and less expensive alternative to a store-bought cheese. It’s marvelous with ripe summer berries, finally appeared at our farmer’s markets. Makes about 12 oz Ingredients: 500 ml whipping (36 %) pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized), preferably organic cream1 tbsp fresh lemon juice Preparation: Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a wide skillet. The first time I made mascarpone I had all doubts if it’d been cooked enough, because of its custard-like texture. You might also like:
Gabriele Galimberti: “Delicatessen With Love” looks at grandmothers around the world (PHOTOS). Gabriele Galimberti/Riverboom/INSTITUTE In honor of Mother’s Day, share a photo on Twitter or Instagram of your grandmother or her signature dish using the hashtag #grandmacooks. Check out our submissions here. If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!” Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. “In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes. Galimberti said many of the subjects for the project were selected serendipitously, picked while he was working on a project about couch surfing that explored the global phenomenon of staying in other people’s houses.
3 Simple Breakfast Ideas Breakfast is the most important meal of my day. When I wake I cannot start my day properly without having a good, wholesome breakfast. During my work week there’s sometimes not enough time to eat a full breakfast, so quick and simple ways to get good energy in the mornings is what I love. I have followed Simply Breakfast for quite some time and always get inspired by the way she styles her breakfast in photographs and – more importantly – the simple recipes she uses. Idea one, above: sunflower seed bread with sunflower seed butter with slivered almonds and green tea. Sunflower seeds have great benefits; they are high in energy and are rich in vitamin E. Idea two: basic avocado and hummus on a bagel I love avocado – I try and eat half of one every day! Idea three: tomato and avocado on toast with black pepper Simple, easy and delicious – adding tomatoes with your avocado is a great combination, finished with some pepper on top.

2 Stews: Cheesecake In A Mug I was telling a friend about my 1-2-3 Chocolate Microwave Mug Cake and kept thinking there had to be equally easy and delicious alternatives. I had some cream cheese and sour cream in the refrigerator and played around with a microwave cheesecake. The first time I overcooked it, but the second time was a charm. It was creamy and delicate from the first bite. This cake is great for people at work, in dorms or if you just want cheesecake...fast! Instead of a crust, I added a crumb topping. Microwave Mug Cheesecake 2 ounces low fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature1/2 cup low fat sour cream1/4 teaspoon vanilla2 tablespoons sugar2 tablespoons egg white, slightly beaten (egg whites in a carton work fine)1/2 teaspoon lemon juice1/2 teaspoon cornstarch (prevents liquid from forming) For "mix ins", add 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips, or swirl in (not stir) 1 tablespoon jam of choice. or swirl in jam at this time. Microwave on medium for 2 1/2 minutes* (in a 650 watt microwave).
