Time for a spicy meal! Heather cooks a #vegetarian #recipe

IMG_0016We’ve been so sick around my household that we haven’t had the energy to eat properly. It was time to make something fast and tasty…and low calorie!

General Tsao Tofu

1 medium turnip, sliced thinly

1 large Vidalia onion, sliced thinly

14 oz package extra firm tofu, drained and diced

1/2 cup General Tsao stir-fry sauce (I used House of Tsang)

olive oil

Spray cooking spray into a stir fry pan over medium heat. Add a little olive oil to coat. When oil is ready, add onion and turnip and cook, stirring often, until soft and lightly golden. Raise temperature slightly. Add tofu and sauce and cook for eight minutes, stirring frequently.

I served this with multi-colored pasta (the kind that claims to have servings of vegetables in it). Another good choice would be rice. Enjoy!

Apple Eggnog Cobbler #recipe #baking

We were so ready to eat this right out of the oven I forgot to take a picture of it! Very tasty as it is, but if you want a sweeter dessert, serve with ice cream or whipped cream, or some extra eggnog poured on top.

Apple Eggnog Cobbler

Oven to 425 degrees. Cook for 25 minutes

  • 5 cups chopped apples. I leave the skins on, personally.
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 1/2 tbl. tapioca
  • 3 tbl. brown sugar
  • 1 dollop honey
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 2 tbl melted butter
  • 1 3/4 cup biscuit mix
  • 1/2 cup eggnog
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 4 tbl melted butter

Gently mix together the ingredients up to the butter and pour into an oiled 8×8 baking pan. Then dribble the melted butter over the top. Mix together the rest of the ingredients and spoon over the apples.

Bake and enjoy!

New #recipe: Pumpkin Spice Apple Cake

Yes, yes, we’re addicted to pumpkin spice! Here’s a fun recipe to try, with loads of flavor.

apple cake

        2 Cups Diced Apples. I always leave the peel on for extra nutrition.


      1/2 Cup White Sugar
        1 Cup  Flour (or use a generous cup of gluten-free baking mix and skip the baking soda)


          1 teaspoon Baking Soda
          2 tablespoons Pumpkin spice coffee syrup (I used Torani)


1 teaspoon Cinnamon

      1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
      1/4 Cup Applesauce
      2 Eggs Beaten
      1 teaspoon Vanilla
        1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)


Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 inch pan. Cooking time:  approx. 45 minutes.

Mix applesauce, eggs, syrup and vanilla. Mix chopped apples with sugar and add to first mixture. Stir the dry ingredients together and fold in, then add walnuts.

Makes a dark, shiny cake perfect with a dollop of whipped cream!
