I love my smoothies, and up until recently, I used to make them with 2 scoops of frozen yogurt, 1 cup of organic milk, 1 tsp. liquid honey, 1 tsp. vanilla, and frozen strawberries all blended together in my Magic Bullet.
Can you really lose 10 pounds in a week with the cinnamon diet? According Laura Cone, a British University study published an article in Woman’s World magazine, claiming cinnamon could be the new miracle diet pill for weight loss – especially for that stubborn belly fat at.
I’ve been in search of a GREAT crispy, REAL Ginger tasting gingersnap for years now. Many recipes on the internet claimed to be THE best one. One recipe even claimed to be the recipe for the old, hot gingersnap that Nabisco used to sell.
Huh! That was a laugh.
That recipe had way to much sugar for my liking, so DO be careful to use LESS than the 1 cup of mixed sugars rather than more than.
Have you noticed? Everyone is talking about Quinoa now, so I got curious and decided to try it. Though claims have been made that Quinoa is a great replacement for rice, I wasn’t prepared to substitute it straight out for rice when making my favourite rice pudding. You see, I’m not a fan or tapioca pudding and Quinoa looks for-all-the-world like tapioca to me. Hence I searched for a brand new recipe; one I’d be more apt to love… of which here is my variation of Broccoli Cheese Casserole.
I especially love it when a new concoction turns out as well as this one did… What a WINNER HERE!
This is what I came up with:
My girlfriend from grade school is on a diet and she’s doing spectacularly well so I don’t want to hinder her progress. But, it’s her birthday and we like to celebrate our birthdays with chocolate cake.
When we were kids, my mother decorated one of my birthday cakes on a budget… she used Smarties. From that day on, when invited to my birthday parties, my friends would always ask anxiously if my mother was making chocolate cake with Smarties on it, again this year. Thus a tradition got started.
Getting back to my girlfriends birthday cake, I had a choice… to make Pamela a chocolate cake that would only add temptation to break her progress (not a choice!)… or make her cupcakes instead.
Cupcakes won out because they can be frozen for later use… thus my title “Decadent Diet Birthday Cake.”
