More Creative Cooking

>> Saturday, April 21, 2012

I have some more creative ideas for eating and drinking, as a continuation from my post on creative cooking.

One day I had no lemon for tea so I had this bright idea to used the lemonade punch in my cabinet. All you need is one spoonful and no sugar. It was divine.

If you buy a frozen pizza, save money with purchasing a plain pizza and add your own topping from home. ex. peppers, onions, mushrooms, sandwich meat, etc. You can also make mini pizza's using the dough from Pillsbury. 

I learned from my Latin babysitter a meal called the poor person's dinner. Needless to say I have used it a few times. It's rice with red Goya sazon seasoning and a fried egg over easy, on top. You can add yellow or white cheese on top. I like black pepper on my eggs with this dish.

Lastly, for today, I learned how to make granola from a neighbor who moved away. I miss her. Use dry oatmeal, brown sugar, maple syrup, teaspoon of oil to keep moist. That's the basics. Add what you like after that nuts, chocolate or butterscotch chips, coconut shredding, raisins, cranberries, a certain cereal, etc. make as moist or as dry with the basic ingredients. I like to crumble over my yogurt and cereals. My children like it as a snack in a zip lock bag for lunch or trips.

I'll give some more interesting ideas in another post. Bye for now.
