The Chinese Soup Lady & Chinese Soup Recipes | Traditional Soups for the Modern Soup Drinker Cauliflower Breadsticks Recipe To-die-for mock breadsticks made with cauliflower that are low in calories, carbs and fat. No fail results as I take the guess work out of the recipe with step-by-step photo instructions. Phenomenal low carb alternative to traditional cheesy breadsticks. And you can pick them up by hand. I made 2 batches of cauliflower breadsticks in a row, just to make sure it works. So, let’s begin. Place cauliflower in any oven proof baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. Line a bowl with a linen kitchen/tea towel. Then you grab the towel by the corners, holding with one hand just below the corners, and start squeezing the liquid out with another hand. Just showing you that the kitchen towel works. Here you can see, from right to left: cauliflower “ball” before squeezing, after squeezing and liquid squeezed out. Open the towel and voila: you got yourself some pretty dry cauliflower. After you make the “dough”, transfer it onto any baking sheet lined with parchment paper. And bake. 1. 2.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Sorry for the detour. Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t. The key to this being the ultimate lemonade is that you blend it up with the lemon rind in there. And any time of day for that matter. (makes 2 pint-glass servings with ice) 3/4 cup sugar2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds2 cups water1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute (you could use fresh, but I think the frozen works better here) In a blender squeeze the lemons and add the rest of the lemon, rind and all. Now if that doesn’t say summer, I don’t know what does.

Healthy Recipes, Healthy Eating, Healthy Cooking You may be wondering if popcorn is a healthy snack if you're trying to lose weight. On one hand, it's high in fiber and low in calories compared to most snack foods. But, if you douse it in butter—a la movie theatres—then you may be getting more calories than you bargained for. Snacking itself is not a bad thing—it can fuel you until your next meal and also can be a great place to get in some food groups you're missing in your other meals.

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up. In order to solve a common I-want-a-chocolate-CHOCOLATE-cookie-but-he-wants-a-plain-chocolate chip-cookie dilemma that happens like, every single weekend here… I made both. Some of them smashed up against each other while others sat on top of each other but in the end, they all tasted… fantabulous. And then they tasted extra delicious after I spent two hours cleaning out the contents of our bar (take that as you will), after he spent three hours organizing the pantry (that was weird) and after we both needed to severely eat our emotions immediately post-Boardwalk Empire finale. WHAT was that. ??????? Why??? Then I tried to dunk a cookie in milk and failed. I need cookie dunking lessons, a redo on season 2 (thanks HBO), and a salad. Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies makes 24 cookies
