:lol: :lol: :lol: Right there with you Rita! Working on getting rid of several pounds that just won't go away since my DS was born 3 1/2 years ago (guess can't be called "baby fat" any more). Out of a sudden there's food every where and oh boy! That "won't power" gets really tested :wink:

Uuuuuh, that's a great idea. I haven't seen rhubarb since late spring, but peaches... they're coming in by the cartload right now! We have our next tranche of visitors (eight this time) coming in at the end of the week. This might be a great recipe to add to the mix! Thanks, Terrie! :D

Terrie, have you ever replaced the rhubarb with something else when rhubarb was not in season? The recipe sounds like a great year-round one. Tart granny apples, maybe? Any ideas out there for a substitute?


I've not yet tried it with anything else. But peaches come to mind.

Just to test your 'won't power' - as in 'I won't break my diet for weight loss this week' :wink:

Did really good last week, I managed to lose 2lb despite having some Lardy cake - drool, num, num.... it is something that I never see up here in Yorkshire, but is found 'down south' basically it is a bread dough with sultanas, mixed spice, lard and sugar layered up and folded several times and when it cooks you get a wonderful caramel like toffee on the bottom. And I have been dreaming of having some for several years now, because as I said, it just isn't available up here.

This is for the second set I made that are dark and light gray with some tan.

Quinoa and Black Bean Salad

1 1/2 c quinoa
1 1/2 c canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
salt and pepper, to taste (careful with the salt since there is some in the dressing)
1 1/2 c corn (best if you use fresh cooked and cut off the cob)
3/4 c finely chopped bell pepper
jalapeno pepper, minced (to your taste)
1/4 c finely chopped fresh cilantro (of course this is to taste since some people just don't like it)

Dressing:
5 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/3 c olive oil

In a saucepan of boiling salted water cook quinoa 10 minutes. Drain quinoa in a mesh sieve and rinse under colld water.
Set sieve over a saucepan of boiling water (quinoa should not touch water) and steam quinoa, covered with a kitchen towel
and lid, about 10 minutes until fluffy and dry. While quinoa is cooking, toss black beans with red wine vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.
When quinoa is done put in large bowl and cool. Add beans, corn, peppers and cilantro.
In a small bowl whisk together dressing ingredients and drizzle over the salad.
Salad may be made one day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature to serve.
Enjoy!!

I had submitted two sets of reels and this is for the blue set.

Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Clafoutis Serves 8

2 1/4 cups quick cooking oats uncooked or 2 3/4 cups old fashioned oats, uncooked
1/3 c brown sugar
3/4 c raisins or substitute other dried fruit
1/4 to 1/3 c nuts or seeds, chopped (walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, etc.)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 1/3 c milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp vanilla extract (sounds like a lot, but thats what the recipe states)
1 c fresh fruit

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Lightly spray a 13 x 9 dish with oil

In a large bowl, combine the oats, sugar, dried fruit, chopped nuts, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
Add milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix
Pour into the greased baking dish and make sure the solids are spread out evenly. Arrange the fresh
fruit on top.

Bake for about 50 minutes, until the center is set and firm to the touch Let cool slightly, best eaten warm.

Cut in serving size pieces. You can add your favorite topping if desired (ie - a drizzle of syrup or agave, spoon of yogurt, etc )
Store leftovers in refridgerator, tightly covered or wrap in individual servings. Freezes well. Pop in microwave to warm and
breakfast in seconds. Yummy

Here's my recipe for one of my reels - the yellow-gold one that I named Peach Cobbler .


Peach-Lavender Cobbler

FILLING
4 1/2 pounds fresh peaches—peeled, pitted and diced (10 cups)
1/3 cup mix of half granulated, half brown  sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons cornstarch

TOPPING
1  teaspoon dried lavender blossoms
1  cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons rolled oats
1/4 cup mix of half granulated, half brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
1/2 cup heavy cream, plus more for brushing
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons turbinado sugar


Preheat the oven to 400°. In a bowl, mix the peaches, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt,  lemon juice and cornstarch. Transfer the filling to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

Use a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle, grind the lavender to a powder. In a bowl, combine the lavender, flour, oats, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or two knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the 1/2 cup of cream and the buttermilk; stir until the dough is just moistened.

Use two spoons to form 3-tablespoon mounds of the topping and arrange them evenly over the peaches. Brush with cream and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar. Bake the cobbler for about 50 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. Let cool slightly before serving. You can serv it with a scoop of French Vanilla Ice cream. Enjoy!

thanks guys!
i tried Atkins, after 5 weeks i lost 100 gr (i dont know how much it is in ounches)
so it didnt work for me.
i do the diet, because i gained a lot of weight (40!! kg - i think 80 american pounds)
after breast cancer treatment, ovary and some other pluming in my body were taken out.

the dr. started to say that i need to loose weight, but due to too high radiation my
Thyroid shut down.
to make the story short i am in disppare. so i tried every thing the weight is my best friend
never leave me alone! :cry:

few weeks ago, an alternative dr. told me to do the gluten and sugar free diet.
at home i can mange it easy - unlimited fresh veg, only 3 fruits a day, only 3 tblsp oil,
eggs, meet, cheese are the proteins, chickpeas and other peas, quinoa, buckweat are the carbs
as well you dont need to count calories.
and dinners must be separated between carbs and proteins.

so the bottom line is that i want to find RECIPES that are great, enjoyable
and fun to eat
as entree, main course, desert and some times nashing
i am afraid that is too much to ask :roll: :oops:

i hope you help me guys (i will update you how skinny i will get with in ....) 8)
I think that we might be better to transfer this conversation to it's own thread under Anything Else, as Lotti set up this one to be relatively 'gossip free'

But anything that helps us to be healthy for quilting time has to be good, right :wink:
