Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups

lemon bars January is always the time of year when most of us get caught up in the winter produce doldrums, fueled by the dearth of flavorful fruit and the overabundance of hard, starchy vegetables. But I find if I set my mind on citrus, I can carefully sidestep most bouts of Farmers Market Mourning. There are few things teeming with more promise of a sunnier tomorrow than sour-sweet piercing members of the rutaceae family, and I’ve got an archive full of margarita cookies, lemon bundts, orange chocolate chunks, grapefruit loaves and key lime tartlets that should assure you that you need not feel that you are missing out just because the peaches and berries have gone into hibernation. But I haven’t had a lemon bar in there before now, despite repeated requests and, heck, even pleading for one by various people inside my computer. Nonetheless, with a few adjustments, I am certain my mother will approve of this recipe. One year ago: English Muffins, Everyday Pancakes and Salad Lyonnaise

Fat content of milk Chart of milk products and production relationships, including milk The fat content of milk is the proportion of milk, by weight,[1]:266 made up by butterfat. The fat content, particularly of cow's milk, is modified to make a variety of products. The fat content of milk is usually stated on the container, and the colour of the label or milk bottle top varied to enable quick recognition.

Nutrition intake between whole milk drinkers and skimmed or low fat drinkers is different. Methods for changing fat content[edit] To reduce the fat content of milk, e.g. for skimmed or semi-skimmed milk, all of the fat is removed and then the required quantity returned. Methods of detecting fat content[edit] Terms for fat content by country[edit] Canada[edit] United States[edit]

Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe I’m fairly certain that I’ve discussed my lack of love for the great outdoors, so it’s safe to say you’ll never hear me writing about long hikes in the woods or camping anywhere other than on a deck chair at a five star resort (Hey, I can dream, right?). Not to say that I am not fond of the fresh air and scenery, I just like to keep a screen between me and the bugs. Needless to say, I don’t last long at picnics in the park or anywhere outdoors for that matter. Usually an annoying fly or buzzing bee will send me into a fit within 20 minutes and I’ll sit there contemplating my escape route or the idea of eating in my air conditioned vehicle. Problem is, I am a big pan of picnic food. Hot dogs, potato salad and watermelon rank pretty high on my hierarchy of good eats, so I’ll usually suffer through it as long as I am armed with cold bottle of water and a fly swatter. Then, a couple of friends came up with the idea of a virtual picnic. Eat Smart Eat Local Eat Sustainably Eat Green Eat Out

Sloppy Joes I used to be terrified of sloppy joes. It’s true. When I was a little girl, I got it in my head that sloppy joes were demons, and that if I ate them I’d become possessed and die. Okay, listen. I’ve since come to see the light. And Becky’s made her peace with Vogue magazine. We’ve both grown a lot in our faith. Here’s what you need. First, add the butter to a large skillet or dutch oven over medium high heat. When the meat is brown, drain out most of the fat. You wanna make your cardiologist happy? Next, cut a medium onion in half from root to tip. Then cut in the other direction to dice it. It’s been awhile since I showed you how to dice an onion. It was time. Now cut off the top and bottom of a green pepper or two (depending on the size.) Cut the halves into strips… Then cut up the strips to create a small dice. I’d probably quit within two days because by then I’d be really dang sick of bell peppers. But it would be the best two days of my life. Dice up some garlic, too—several cloves! No.
