High Fiber, Low Calorie Bar

Our son wanted to to make him some protein bars. He found us a recipe on the web for us to try.

So we immediately found a problem

The directions say to cream the butter and sugar. If you notice there is no butter or sugar listed. So we improvised and added 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of butter. I am not sure if still mad it low calorie, but it is tasty.
1/2cup Plain Yogurt
1cup banana, mashed
1Eggs or Egg Replacer
1tsp Vanilla
1/2cup Wheat Flour
1tsp. Baking Soda
1cups rolled Oats
1cups cereal
1/4cup Dried cranberries

The link to the recipe can be found here.

Buffalo Bacon Mac And Cheese

I added bacon to Kraft Buffalo Macaroni and Cheese.
I still felt the heat, but really could not taste the buffalo flavor. Could be that the bacon is overpowering the flavor.

Butterscotch and Pecans

Substitute have the chocolate chips with butterscotch chips and add roasted pecans to the Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe to make these delicous cookies.
I roasted my pecans in a fry pan with about 2 tablespoons of butter. 
These turned out really good, I could not stop eating them when they were coming out if the oven.

Meatloaf Stuffed Squash and Side Way Baked Potato

Tired of the same old baked potato or squash, I have a meatloaf stuffed squash and a side way baked potato recipe. These can be an interesting addition to any meal.

Meatloaf Stuffed Squash

1 medium sized squash (cut in half and seeded)
1/2 lb Ground Turkey
1 small onion (diced)
1 Small green pepper (diced)
1 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon pepper pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Add Crushed Red pepper flakes if you like it spicy.

On a baking sheet place the 2 halves of squash Open side up on baking sheet, drizzle olive oil on top of squash and sprinkle with salt. Cook for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and set aside. Mix all remaining ingredients except shredded Parmesan cheese in mixing bowl as you would a meatloaf. spoon 1/2 of mixture into each half of squash. Add the shredded Parmesan cheese to top and bake additional 25 minutes.

Side Way Baked Potato

2 russet baker potatoes (cooked in microwave for 7 minutes, then cooled)
2 slices of Sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup real bacon bits
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/8 cup chives (chopped)

DO NOT CUT BAKED POTATO IN HALF LENGTH WISE! Place cuts in potato every 1/2 inch, (NOT CUTTING ALL THE WAY THROUGH POTATO) shot ways. Cut the slices of cheddar cheese into small squares and stuff between slits in the potato. Place potatoes into a small casserole dish. In a small sauce pan heat milk and sour cream until hot but not scalding or boiling, add grated Parmesan cheese and stir until smooth, add bacon Bits and salt and pepper to taste. Spoon mixture over each potato, then sprinkle on shredded Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, Add chive on top of finished dish and serve.

Easy Mac And Cheese

I love mac and cheese, weather it comes from a box or made home made. With some Internet searching I have made some delicious home made macaroni and cheese.

So I cooked up a box of rotella noodles, added  can of cheese soup, about 1/2 cup of milk, and an 8 oz bag of cheese.
You can bake it in the casserole dish for about 20 to 30 minutes with bread or cracker crumbs on top.
I did not at the time, because I was hungry.
