Easy Double Peach Pound Cake

“A real nice peach pound cake that is so easy to make and it’s a real pretty cake too.

Asparagus and Potato Frittata ~ Low-Calorie

“You can put your favorite veggies, meats, bacon, sausage, or cheese into a frittata tailored just for you.  You can add fewer eggs to make it very thin, or more eggs to make it thick. The old method was to first saute the vegetables and meats in oil and then add the eggs. For a low-calorie version I steam the veggies in the microwave first and then…

I couldn’t even finish it….

Low-Calorie Stuffed Peppers with Ketchup, Basmati Rice and Ground Beef

“There are so many versions of stuffed peppers!  Only ketchup, Basmati rice,  onion,  salt and pepper make up the flavor for the inside of this easy, tasty, low-calorie version.   I think the ones with tomato sauce are kind of bland and need more kick in them.  But I don’t like them very spicy or with other vegetables in the filling either.   Using ketchup and Basmati rice makes a…

Kolacki (Polish) Cookies

“For over 300 years, these cookies have been a tradition in the Slavic countries, but I discovered these fabulous Polish cookies in 2001 from a TV show.

This cookie is spelled several different ways….kolacki, kolacky, kolache… all the same cookie with little regional variations.  Kolackies are so similar to rugelachs, but…
