Kathy's Recipes

I love to cook new things... especially cooking with fresh, colorful veggies! I wear my chefs apron; sometimes even my CIA chef's jacket. Always remember presentation, finishing with a flourish! Smile.

The onion is puréed so that its flavor carries throughout the biscuits. You can make and freeze the biscuits up to a week ahead. When ready to serve, thaw, wrap in foil, and heat in a 325º oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Un-Chained Recipe Contest: Banana Berry Smoothie
Very Good 4.5/5
(21 ratings)

I used to love grabbing smoothies, until I stumbled across the nutrition facts! I was really in shock when I looked up the nutritional information for my favorite smoothie, the jamba juice banana berry smoothie. The smoothie can contain up to 560 calories, and GET THIS, 115g of sugar. You think you are doing something good for your body, instead you are overloading it with tons of added sugar and other hidden culprits like frozen yogurt and sherbet! While the froyo and sherbet they add are fat free, they are desserts in themselves, and not something I want in mid day pick me up.

I came up with a smoothie that is just as creamy, thick and sweet as jambas smoothies, without all the added calories, sugar, and frozen desserts.

Shrimp with Lobster Sauce
(no ratings)

"This is just like you would get at a Cantonese Chinese restaurant. There is no lobster in the sauce. Medium to large shrimp can be used. It is great served over brown rice. I sometimes add broccoli (not included in recipe) to up the nutritional value."
