Whole Pizza Crust (Bread Machine Recipe)

Recipe By : Sugar Less For Life by Ellen C. Brennan

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 Cups Stone Ground Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Butter
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Yeast

Place all ingredients except the yeast in the bread machine and add the yeast to the dispenser. Use
the dough setting. When complete, place dough in a greased bowl and allow to rest for 20-30
minutes. Then place the dough on a greased pizza pan. I like to pierce, then cook the crust about
5 minutes before I put on the toppings. Cover with favorite toppings and bake in a preheated 400
degree F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

1/2 cup cooked red beans (if canned, rinse)
3-4 cups salad vegetables, such as romaine, tomatoes, peppers
Shredded low fat cheese (Optional)

Chocolate Truffles
by Shake Off the Sugar

Surprisingly easy to make, this dark, rich confection is the perfect treat for true chocolate lovers. Feel free to adjust the level of sweetness to your own taste. If you prefer a creamier consistency, just add an extra 2 tablespoons of cream.


½ cup + 2 tablespoons heavy (whipping) cream
8 ounces unsweetened baker’s chocolate
1 ½ tablespoons butter
¼ - 1/3 cup agave syrup or nectar (fructose may be substituted)
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ cup pecans
½ cup dehydrated shredded coconut, unsweetened

Place the heavy cream in a heavy saucepan on your stove top’s lowest heat setting. Break the chocolate into smaller pieces and add to the cream. Add the butter, agave syrup (either light or dark syrup will work) and vanilla. Continue heating the mixture, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.

Place the mixture into an 8 inch square pan and chill in the refrigerator for about an hour or until the chocolate mixture is firm.

While the mixture is chilling, spread the pecans on a baking sheet and toast lightly under the broiler. Watch them carefully and remove the nuts as soon as they begin to brown. Place the nuts in a food processor or chopper and chop until finely minced. Set aside in a small bowl.

Place the coconut into a separate small bowl or dish.

When the chocolate mixture is firm, remove it from the refrigerator. Using a teaspoon, scoop walnut-sized portions of chocolate from the dish. Then, roll each scoop of chocolate into small bite-sized balls. Roll half of the balls in the chopped pecans and half in the coconut to coat. Store, covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Remove about an hour before serving for creamier consistency. Tastes best at room temperature.

Makes 32 truffles.

2 truffles:
13 g. fat; 8 g total carbs; 2 g. fiber; 2 g. protein

Talking Killer Black Bean Soup

Here is the black bean soup recipe--it is so easy, but so good!

1 tbl olive oil
1 sweet onion
2-3 cloves garlic
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can FF chicken broth
2 pkts dry chicken seasoning or 2 bullion cubes
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
light sour creme

Saute garlic and onion in olive oil until translucent. Add broth, beans, seasoning and cayenne pepper. Simmer covered for 30 minutes. If desired, blend with a stick blender or in food processor to give soup a creamy consistency. Serve with a dollop of light sour cream, if desired. Enjoy.

This recipe makes about two full bowls of soup, but can be easily doubled or tripled if serving more people.

Avocado Soup


1 tablespoon butter
1 scallion -- white bit chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 avocado -- drizzled with lemon
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper -- to taste


Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Add the scallion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, or until translucent.
Add 1 cup of the stock, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, blend the avocado, cream, and remaining 1/2 cup stock in a blender until smooth.
Add the avocado mixture to the skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes, or until heated through.
Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
Simple and delicate, this creamy soup makes a sublime starter for *Rack of Lamb with Brussels Sprouts.


~~~~~~~~


Blue Cheese and Bacon Soup


2 tablespoons butter
1/2 leek -- the white half halved lengthwise, washed well & chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup cauliflower -- chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
2 ounces blue cheese -- crumbled
6 strips bacon -- cooked and crumbled


Cheese soups are especially savory and this one is made even more delicious with the addition of the smoky flavor of bacon.


If you are not a fan of blue cheese, you can substitute an equal amount of grated cheddar.


Heat the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat until the foam subsides.
Add the leek, mushrooms and cauliflower.
Cover and cook, stirring often for 5 minutes.
Add the stock and and bring to the boil.
Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
Transfer the mixture to a food proccesor.
Add the blue cheese and puree for 1 minute, or until smooth.
Serve immediately with the crumbed bacon on top.
About 2 cups, serves two.

Jewish Mother Chicken Soup


You need a big pack of chicken thighs, but you can use any parts or a whole chicken cut up, totalling about 4 lbs.


Put it in a big stock pot (mine holds 8 quarts) with a large onion that has been scored in quarters but not cut through.
Cover with water and bring to a boil.
If it gets gray scum on top, skim it.
Simmer for at least a couple hours, the longer the better.
About an hour and a half before serving, add a few carrots and celery ribs, cut into largish pieces (for easy picking-out if you don't want to eat them). Sometimes I use baby carrots and put in 18 of them for "Gold Soup"
Depending on how flavorful my chicken is, I sometimes add a Telma chicken bouillon cube or two.
I like the Telma brand because it seems less salty and more chicken-y than most.

Oven Barbecued Brisket

Needs to be made a day ahead

Sauce:
1/2 (10 oz. bottle) Worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup hot pepper sauce
4 Tbsp. (1/2 stick) butter
1 scant cup cider vinegar
1/2 Tbsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. red pepper flakes, optional
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1 large beef brisket, about 4 lbs.


Combine all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil.
Stir well, lower the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Let cool and refrigerate until ready to use.
The sauce will keep for several days.


The day before you plan to serve the brisket, rub it with additional salt and the garlic paste, put it in a foil lined roasting pan, and cover it generously with sauce.

Pull the foil up over the meat to make a tightly sealed package.
Let sit overnight in the refrigerator to develop flavor.


In the morning, let the brisket come to room temperature, about 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 325* F.
Roast the brisket, still in it's package, for 5 hours, then remove it from the oven.
Pull the foil down around the meat and return it to the oven to brown.
It should absorb most of the sauce and be perfectly done in another 1/2 hour.

Default Chocolate Drops

I am posting this recipe on Debbie's request. It is soooo simple!

2 squares of BAKER's 100% chocolate
1/4 stick butter
Chopped Almonds
AGAVE
Muffin paper cups

Melt your chocolate in the microwave or water bath with butter. Make sure you are not handling it too long, because it will start crumbling or caking! Add AGAVE to taste. Perhaps about 1/4 cup, or more. When all ingredients are mixed together, add ALMONDS (or not, or your favorite nuts) until it looks pretty nutty, and chocolate serves to glue the nuts together.

Chocolate mixture will start hardening very quickly!
Spoon out what you think would be a good size bite, put it in the cup cake paper, and using the paper, shape it.

I was very clumsy with the shaping part, so I either made 4 sided or 3 sided little pyramids (quite pathetic looking!).

No matter how it looks, you know have a quick sweet bite ready in your FRIDGE!

Enjoy.

To make the basic tomato sauce: In a medium skillet, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil until tender, about 6 minutes.Over medium heat, add the crushed tomatoes and tomato sauce, stirring to mix. Add the Italian seasoning and whatever fresh herbs you like while continuing to stir. Lower heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently. This should make 5 cups of sauce.

Layering: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 9X12 inch rectangular glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cover the bottom of the dish with 1 1/2 cups of the tomato sauce.

Add remaining eggplant slices and cover with additional provolone slices and Parmesan cheese. Top with remaining tomato sauce.

Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 to 45 minutes until eggplant is fork-tender. Uncover and continue to bake for 10 to 15 minutes to reduce the amount of liquid.

Pepper

Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a 15 inch skillet and saute garlic for 1 minute to soften. Layer vegetables in the order listed, sprinkling the layers with salt and a generous amount of pepper.

NOTES : This dish reheats well and actually improves with time.

I use less olive oil and have been known to use canned tomatoes instead of the fresh. Also, since I don't care for bell peppers, I omit them and it is still a wonderful dish.
