The Great Lent – Vegetarian Meals

The Great Lent began about two weeks ago, which means that those who follow this tradition, abstain from eating meat at least on Friday of every week, or some even do it on Wednesdays as well.

If you are like me, and are used to having meat at least once or twice per day, preparing meatless meals a couple of times per week might create a challenge.

I have been posting some of my meatless recipes during this past year, so if you are searching for ideas, here are the links to these posts:

Slice of Cocoa Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Cocoa Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting – Recipe

It’s time to celebrate yet another birthday at the office. I have volunteered to be the “cake baker” , but the birthday celebrant has to select his/her favorite cake. Sometimes I even ask them to provide me with their favorite recipe, and I will do my best to create a cake. This time the selection was a chocolate cake with lots of frosting.

Morning Time Management

Mornings could be a very hectic time in any household, especially if everyone is on a very tight schedule, and in a hurry to get done as fast as possible, and to move on.

It is even worse if you are not a morning person, and you have to drag yourself out of bed, even after the alarm goes off, and the snooze button is hit few more times (this is not a good idea).

Here are some of my suggestions to make the best of your busy morning, but it requires good planning the night before:

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip – Low Calorie Recipe

Dips are still part of the “centerpiece” foods at parties. Everyone loves having a scoop of their favorite dip, surrounded by veggies or chips. It makes it easy to move around and socialize, while enjoying your food at the same time.

I already shared the ever so famous recipe for the original Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip, but recently I had an opportunity to taste a much lighter version of this dip, and I could not believe how great it taste

Veggie Burger – Recipe

I never thought I would like the taste of a veggie burger, so at first I purchased some frozen ones, Veggie Medley by Gardenburger, and realized that they were not as bad as I thought. Since I am not really a hamburger lover, veggie burger earned my approval.

I like making my own food at home, since it allows me to control what goes into it, and enables me to modify the recipe to my taste.

I looked up some recipes for veggie burgers, and came up with this modified version to fit The Fat Smash Diet.
