Easy Olive and Cheese Pizza Recipe

Easy Olive and Cheese Pizza

02.25.09 by Jackie

The hard part of making pizza at home is preparing the dough, but with this recipe, you'll be making pizza all the time.  The toppings for this pizza are olives, tomatoes and basil, but you can use whatever you like.  That combination is popular at my home because my father is allergic to mushrooms. He can't eat the Mango Mushroom Pizza that I always prepare for our "pizza nights".  The little one is obsessed with olives, so this one is her favorite as well.

Your dreams will come true in Disneyworld Recipe
I spent the past week in Orlando with my sisters-in-law. They had a week off from school, so we decided to take the pilgrimage to the land of 1000 amusement parks. Ok, maybe there aren't 1000 of them, but there are enough to keep the ADD-like attention spans of the little kids piqued.

Broiled Agave Nectar and Honey Grapefruit Recipe

Broiling grapfruits is extremely easy, and it imparts an added sweetness to the fruit.  If you know someone who won't eat grapefruits and complains about the bitterness, this recipe might change their mind.

Just glaze the fruit with a sweetener and place under the broiler of your oven for a few minutes. The combination of the tart and slightly sweet glaze makes it a winner.

I serve it as a side for breakfast or during Sunday brunches. My hubby loves it. Or you can serve it as a first course as I used to get in my middle school cafeteria in France.

Lemongrass Tofu Recipe

Lemongrass Tofu

02.20.09 by Jackie

Lemongrass is very common in Vietnamese cuisine. It is considered as a mild diuretic, tonic and stimulant. It's very fibrous so lemongrass needs to be finely chopped.

This particular recipe combines lemongrass with fried tofu.

Lemongrass is quite expensive in stores and it sold by bulk of 5 stalks. It's a perennial. I asked my husband about it and he started to grow 4 "bushes" last year and we keep getting some, which is very convenient.

Egg Free, No Bake, Berry Good Cheesecake Recipe

Ah, cheesecake! It's an amazingly rich (read unhealthy) dessert that is a favorite in our family. One of the girls is allergic to eggs, so she's never had one. She's the reason I learned how to use xanthan gum and lecithin as a substitute for eggs. This seemed like a perfect application.

I'm pretty sure you won't miss the eggs, and I'm positive you won't miss having to bake the cheesecake. If you've ever had one curdle, this is the recipe for you.
