  • Easy Asparagus
    This is an easy and quick side dish to make.

    1 bunch of fresh asparagus, cleaned
    Juice of 1 lemon
    1 tsp of olive oil
    1 tsp of butter
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Melt the butter with the olive oil. Throw in the asparagus. Season with salt and pepper. Saute until desired doneness. I like to leave mine really crunchy, really just heated through. Pour in the lemon juice. Saute about 20 seconds longer. Eat and enjoy.

    You can vary the seasonings if you like, adding garlic or fresh herbs. I like to add some cajun seasonings.
  • Stone Ground Whole Wheat Bread For The Bread Machine

    Recipe By : Sweet Talk Board
    Serving Size : 24
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/2 Cup Water
    1/4 Cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal

    3 3/4 Cups Stone Ground Whole Wheat Flour
    3 Tablespoons Vital Wheat Gluten
    1 1/2 Teaspoons Salt
    4 Tablespoons Splenda
    1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
    1/4 Cup Sunflower Seeds

    1 1/2 Cups Milk -- Warmed
    3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    1 Package Active Dry Yeast

    Put the oatmeal into the 1/2 cup of water and set aside.

    In a bowl, place all the dry ingredients (flour, wheat gluten, salt, Splenda, walnuts, sunflower seeds). Mix together.

    In the bread container, put in the milk and olive oil. Add the soaked oatmeal then the dry ingredients. Make a little well in the flour mixture and put in the yeast. Set the machine on dough. When the cycles are completed, take the dough out of the container and knead until springy. Place in a greased 1 1/2 pound bread pan and put in a warm place to let the dough rise again for about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. The bread should sound hollow when tapped if it is done.

    NOTES : 3 tablespoons of powdered dry milk ( not instant) and 1 1/2 cups of water can be substituted for the 1 1/2 cups of milk.

    The walnuts, sunflower seeds and oatmeal are optional. If you decide not to use the oatmeal, however, be sure to still use the water or substitute milk.
  • Jamaican Beef Patties
    I got this recipe from a dear Jamaican friend. I have made them with white flour for years, and decided to try to adapt them for Sugarbusters last night for dinner. I expected my picky kids to complain about the ww flour crust, but no one even noticed! Ask your butcher for the suet. Trim any meat off it, and partially freeze, then coarsely chop it and put into the food processor. When it resembles coarse meal, stop. Don't over process, or it will get too soft and the consistency of crisco. I put it in a ziplock bag and keep it in the freezer, measuring out what I need.


    2 pounds lean ground beef
    1 T thyme
    2-3 scallions minced
    2 scotch bonnet peppers
    1 t salt
    1 cup ww bread crumbs

    Mix the beef, salt, thyme and scallions. VERY carefully mince the peppers, discarding the seeds and webbing. DO NOT touch your face, mouth or eyes until after you have washed your hands thoroughly, as these peppers are really really hot! If you don't like spicy, use only one, or a habanero instead. Mix the minced pepper with the beef. Cook over medium low heat without water or grease until meat is cooked. Add breadcrumbs and cook about 20 minutes more. Remove from heat and cool.


    1 1/2 cups finely minced suet. (partially freeze and put in a food processor)
    1 t salt
    1 t paprika (for color)
    4 cups sg ww pastry flour

    Mix well, then add:

    2/3 - 1 cup ice water

    Mix until it can form a crumbly ball. If too dry, add more ice water. Put in an airtight bag in the fridge until ready to assemble.

    To assemble:

    Roll dough VERY thin. Cut into about 6 inch circles. (I use a lid to a small saucepan, and it works great!) Put about two tablespoons of the meat mix on one side of the round. Use a bit of water on the edges to help seal. Fold over the meat to bring edges together, and press with a fork to seal. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes about 36, or make 4-5 dozen smaller cocktail size (four inch circle).

    You can also make these with chicken. Use a bit of curry powder with the chicken.
  • Ok. Is it not totally the perfect time to grow some basil and make some pesto? So summery..

    To a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the garlic, butter, white pepper, and nutmeg. With the processor running, add the parmesan, then the basil and the parsley. Trickle the oil into the processor until the sauce is smooth. If necessary, add a little hot water to the sauce in order to reach the desired consistancy. Then add salt and pepper to taste. Toss with whole wheat pasta.

    I did not have any buttermilk nor the time to marinate to I put the ckicken in a bowl of skim milk while I prepared the flour mixture.
