Fruit Pie at Trader Joe’s

Fruit Pie at Trader Joe’s

We just went shopping at Trader Joe’s and what did I see in the middle of the isle? Yup, fruit pie. I am not generally one for pie, but out of habit I just checked the label anyways. You may have guessed it, the pies […]

Cookies, Part III – more galactosemic friendly cookies for the holidays…

With this snow I am back at making more cookies. All of the chocolate sables are already gone. I decorated part of them with a walnut and baked them like that. They were my husband’s favorite…and all, yes all of the chocolate ones, are already gone. So I am making more. Here is another recipe you may not know yet…

Hazelnut Macaroons – Haselnuss Makroenchen

3 Egg White
1 pinch of salt
100 gram Sugar
300 -350 gram finely ground hazelnuts
Additional whole hazelnuts for decorating

1. Beat egg white and the pinch of salt until they are firm
2. Add 1/2 of the sugar until egg whites are “shiny
3. Add rest of the sugar and hazelnuts mix well
4. PREHEAT oven to 350 F
5. Use two teaspoons to put dough on cookie sheet (put parchment paper on the cookie sheet)
6. Top each mound of dough with a hazelnut
7. Bake 8-10 minutes

Depending on the size of your dough mounds this recipe can yield up to 50 pieces. I generally make big mounds and therefore I don’t get more than 30 each out of this recipe

Happy baking – please let me know if you like this…

Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s

Have you shopped, or do you shop at Trader Joe’s? I shop there off and on. Yesterday was an “on” day. So many great food finds…

  • Frozen Pizza without cheese and it is so good that the girls almost eat the entire pizza themselves 🙂 ,
  • we are all big snackers I just bought “Organic Multiseed Cracker Sticks”…they are yummy
  • our emergency food for the kids “Breaded Chickenless Nuggets” NOTE: only the chickenless nuggets are OK
  • Vanilla Soymilk
  • Ricemilk
  • We also got their soy yogurt for the first time and both girls love it

There are obviously a lot more choices which are “safe” and without any milk sugar

Pancakes for Breakfast

Pancakes for Breakfast

Is there a better way to start a great weekend than with a pancake breakfast? According to Alena it is the best…We made pancakes this morning. Alena made the batter, and I baked them. She was so excited that she wanted to try the first one right there in the kitchen 🙂 Turns out that she almost ate the entire batch by herself. Mia Rose had one pancake, and Ron the other. We sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar on the pancake and rolled them up. Very, very yummy. They are quick and easy to make from scratch…the recipe is adapted from The Complete Vegetarian Cuisine, Revised and Updated, Rose Elliot, Pantheon Books.

Easy Pancakes

3/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Soy, rice, or other milk you like to use
1/2 Cup water
1-2 melted Earth Balance, or sunflower oil
Oil for frying

1. Mix all ingredients together. Mix well until all lumps are gone
2. Heat oil in frying pan
3. Add 1/4 Cup batter (or more if you like them thick) to pan; tip pan so that batter runs all over
the bottom of the pan
4. Turn when the top is set, and fry bottom up quickly
5. Serve right away

You can serve them with cinnamon and sugar, spread jelly on top of them and roll them up. Otherwise Maple syrup works well too.

Have a great weekend.
