I found this on a cool blog: Make it and Love it
Maybe I'll try it even though I'm not a fan of cottage cheese unless it's in lasagna.

"I am not even kidding...this is yummy. And one of my favorites.

I know. It's not even sweet...yet I still LOVE it.

Don't like cottage cheese? You'll still love this. Don't like tomato? You'll still love this. Well, maybe not. But my husband doesn't like tomato but he loves this. And my friend hates cottage cheese but she loves this. That or they're just trying to be nice. Keep lying to me guys.

I was given a similar recipe but changed it a little bit with some of what I like.

I don't even know what it's called. Maybe we'll call it Avocado Salsa. Because I love avocado and though they might be fatty, it's a good fat. Haven't you heard? Yeah, it has the good kind of fat that helps your memory/eyesight/blood pressure/bone density. Just pick one or create something of your own because I don't remember what it really helps. :o)

You'll need:
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes
  • 1/2 cucumber (Is this throwing you off? It threw me off too but actually REALLY makes the dish.)
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 avocado
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 2 cups of cottage cheese
Chop up all of the veggies, slice the onion, and mix together with the salt and pepper. Serve over cottage cheese and eat with tortilla chips. Oh yum! I'm hungry all over again.

Serves: Oh, I don't know........2 hungry people or 4-6 snackers."

Basic Crepes

1 Cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 Cup milk
1/2 Cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 TBS. butter, melted

Filling Options
peanut butter
hot fudge
cool whip/ reddi whip

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour and eggs. Gradually (very important in making it smooth, not clumpy) add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour 1/4 Cup of the batter for each crepe. Tilt the pan in a circular motion so batter is evenly spread.

3. Cook the crepe for 1-2 minutes until bottom is light light brown. Loosen with spatula; turn and cook other side.

Microwave Cake

I saw this on another blog...haven't tried it but looks good. Person said that it was good for a quick chocolate fix and fun to make with little kids without a lot of mess.

You will need:
4 Tablespoons cake flour (although we used regular all-purpose flour and it was still fine)
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
1 Mug

Mix flour, sugar and cocoa

Spoon in egg

Pour in milk and oil, and mix well

Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power

Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug (it didn't rise out of the mug much because this mug is a typical mug though it will appear taller)

Dump out (or leave it in the mug even) and enjoy!

And, if you're brave...add some chocolate chips or hot fudge (not both though) to the cake batter before you microwave it and tell me how it goes. :) The hot fudge should create a nice lava cake...should being the key word here.
