Recipe Remixxxx

Yes, I finally made Kelly’s Salmon cakes, and they were delicious and simple!  Seriously, what took me so long?  Canned salmon is going to become one of my pantry staples so I can easily whip these up any time.  After forming the cakes, I did bake most of them (like Kelly’s instructions), however, I set a few aside to pan fry for those who are looking for a little extra fat in their diet.  Like I’ve said before, I try to make everyone happy =]

Have you ever switched up a recipe?  I do it all the time.  Do you remember my almond butter cookies?  Lately, they’ve turned into sunflower butter cookies with either pumpkin seeds, or peanuts (whatever I have on hand).  So I thought I would remix, and repost my recipe.

Nut Butter Cookies

Makes 18 cookies 

1/2 cup Nut or seed butter

1/2 cup Maple Syrup

3 Tbs Canola Oil

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 cup Whole Wheat Pastry Flour or Regular Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Chopped Nuts or Seeds

1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combined nut/seed butter, maple syrup, canola oil, and the vanilla extract in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl, combined the flour, baking soda, and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet.  Mix in the chopped nut/seeds and (optional) chocolate chips.  Let the dough sit for five minutes.

Roll tablespoons of the dough into a balls, and flatten to around 1/3 of an inch.  Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.  <- Another change that I made, making them a little bit crispier.

After letting these cool, I layer them in a zip lock bag using wax paper, and send them right into my freezer.  I like divide my baked goods (cookies and breads), and freeze a portion of them.  This way I don’t eat them all at once, and they stay fresher for longer!  It also comes in handy for when we have company, there is no need to worry about dessert!

Have you remixed any recipes lately?

busy working bee, with a ton of recipes!

Yes I am!  In fact, I even bought a planner.  The ultimate sign of a hectic schedule.  Besides organizing my work day, it has helped me plan out the meals that I want to make.

One of the recipes that I have recently made, and really enjoyed, was featured on a Dr. Oz episode (of course) about ovarian cancer.  The recipe Dr. Oz and Dr. William Li made was Sea Bass with a Mediterranean Sauce.  Because of the price of Sea Bass, I  made this recipe with Tilapia, another tasty white fish.  If you don’t eat fish, I would just try the sauce, it’s amazing!  I have used it on top of brown rice, and sauted greens (kale, collards, chard).  It really adds nice flavor.

Besides my Dr. Oz recipe (maybe I can be nominated as his biggest fan?), my time in the kitchen has been limited.  Which is a real bummer because I have a ton of recipes to try!  Check these out, make them, and then tell me how they are =]

  • I found a recipe on Yum Sugar for Cream of Tomato Soup.  I LOVE tomato soup, but find the canned version too salty, and too sweet.
  • This healthy Pumpkin Cheesecake  is made with greek yogurt.  Endless Beauty posted a video for this recipe on youtube almost a year ago.  So i’m more then just a little behind on this one.
  • I may be a little bias, but Whole Foods never fails me when I’m searching for a new recipe.  I can’t wait to try this Curried Cauliflower Soup.
  • If you haven’t read Kelly’s Blog (Meals for Miles), check it out.  Currently earning her masters in nutrition/dietetics, she one of my favorite blogs to read for nutrition and health information.  Plus, she is my running inspiration, she is crazy dedicated!  Anyway Kelly, why haven’t I made the salmon cakes that you posted forever ago?!!?  The can of salmon has literally been in my pantry for that long.
  • Speaking of blogs that I love, Emily (Daily Garnish) is a vegetarian culinary goddess!!  After attending Johnson and Whales, Emily (also a momma to be!) lives in beautiful Seattle, Washington.  Two places that I dream of going to.  (You are a lucky girl!)  Emily very recently posted a recipe for Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies made with pumpkin.  And if I am not totally exhausted after this post, I will go make them!
  • My love for white fish always has me searching for new recipes, and I can not wait to try this one I found on the Food Network for Baked Costa Rican-Style Tilapia with Pineapples, Black Beans and Rice.  yummm

So my next day off, I’ve got some big plans
