So few summer drinks?  I love mint juleps.  Or fresh-squeezed lemonade with mint.  In fact, in summer I think far less of solid sustenance and a lot more of liquid.

This sounds really good.  I might have to try this this weekend.

Ahhh . . . I get it.  Somehow it reminds me of Watergate salad.

Oy!  Still waiting on the film development, but I still wanted to brag about the lovely items I received.  Two items haven't left my place of work -- a beautiful enameled apple magnet and a beautiful painted kiwi box.  I also received an adorable apron embroidered with lots of veggies, which is great because I've really wanted an apron but have been too lazy to make one.  I'm so glad I have one now because I love to cook.  I also received cute hand-painted wooden beads (some of which I think I'm going to use for stitch markers) and an assortment of fruit & veggie handpainted and/or decoupaged cards.  yayita827 also included some recipes for homemade beauty products, which is great since the health food store stuff is expensive and I'd been looking into making my own.  I'll update in this thread with pictures as soon as they come through.

go to the health food store. you should be able to get egg white substitutes.-do ask though cause they might have animal products in.
i've recently had to change my diet for health reasons so i've had to get really creative trying to find recipies that are- gluten free,lactose free, low sugar, low fat, organic meats, no caffeine(means no choccies Angry ) most stuffs ok its the sweets that i really miss Cry
  You might find the Food Allergy Survival Guide Helpfulhttp://www.foodallergysurvivalguide.com/.  Also, if you like quickbreads (pumpkin, zucchini, etc.) those hold up best gluten-free and low fat.  The denser texture that gluten-free flours tend to lend to baked goods work with quickbreads in ways they just don't with regular bread or rolls.

& I have to admit it.  I keep reading these pavlova recipes online and am thoroughly confused.  Is it literally meringue stuffed with marshmallow that is baked?

Oh I had such a lovely response but then my browser crashed!  Sorry if response v. 2 is a little disjointed.

Scrambled tofu:
- firm or extra firm (Chinese-style, not the silken Japanese & if you have low fat tofu available to you, don't use it . . . it makes the scramble taste dry)
- saute veggies until still crisp, then crumble, add seasonings & heat through
- if adding a green (I know you said no cabbage, but if you can eat swiss chard, arugula or other dark leafy green, here would be a good place) toss in a minute before removing from heat so the green just wilts slightly)

Good things to get at an Asian grocery store: shoyu, miso (try the different types because they impart very different flavor), ume plum vinegar or umeboshi plum paste, rice wine vinegar, rice paper wrappers (you can stuff all kinds of veggies in there or even eggs or tofu with veggies for breakfast)

Miso spoilage: this site http://www.foodproductdesign.com/articles/462/462_0600de.html claims miso doesn't spoil.

thanks Cheesy i've been a bit caught up lately(discovered atc's and they've taken over haha) but i'll hopefully be posting new pages soon. can't wait to see how yours are going jillanb

Well I'm not sitting on much original photography (I put myself on a yarn diet with the promise of a digital camera) so I'm having to resort primarily to images I collect, but maybe that will change.

Those sound really good.  I think, though, if I try them I might cut the sugar down a little bit.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Fresh produce tips for a little family on: July 06, 2006 09:17:27 AM
A little menu planning goes a long way.  Consider setting up your meals (loosely, anyway) so that the quick to go veggies are used early in the week, while using the more hardy veggies later.  If your veggies have started to go soft but not moldy, they can still be used in stocks.  You may, too, want to reconsider the prospect that fresh is always better.  Between the irradiation and processing that is done to some supermarket veggies in order to get them to keep long enough to be sold, sometimes veggies that are frozen are much fresher than "fresh" ones.

Scrambled tofu is also good for breakfast.  I like to add shredded carrots, bok choy (regular cabbage finely shredded could also work), finely chopped broccoli, hijiki and/or shiitake mushrooms.  Traditionally, you season with salt, pepper, tumeric (a pinch for color) and nutritional yeast.  Hijiki and dried shiitake mushrooms can usually be found at a health food store if you have one near you.
