One of our favorite summer meals is cool pesto pasta.  When we have it, I use homemade pesto.  It is so easy to make and tastes wonderful, here is the recipe for you to try.

Pesto Recipe

5 or so Cloves of Garlic
15 Large Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup of Pine Nuts (a more frugal option will be Walnuts, Pecans, or Cashews and it works just fine)
Salt and Pepper to taste
7 or so Tablespoons of Olive Oil

  1. In a Blender, blend together the above ingredients, adding oil last slowly.

We mix with pasta, cut up cherry tomatoes and chicken for a cool summer salad.  Super Yummy!!!

Enjoy!

Ice Cube Recipe

This is Matt and I wanted to share a recipe with you today,

There are so many pet peeves that people have. One seems to be the proper use of ice. Many do not realize that there is an etiquette to using ice from the ice trays. Just like when you remove the tire from your car to do something with it, once you are done you must put it back or the next person to use it will have a bad experience. Just like the car tire, when a person removes ice cubes from the tray, you must replace the empty spots with new ice so that the next user will have a pleasant experience.

So how do you complete this daunting task? It takes about 10 seconds of prep, and about 2 to 2.5 hours of cook time.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tray of plastic or metal composition.
  • 3 cups of clean room temperature water (tap is preferred, but bottle water is an option)
  • 2 tablespoons clean water (optional depending on availability of empty ice tray)

Directions:

  1. Remove Ice from tray for desired use
  2. Remove remaining ice from tray if desire for fresh ice is prominent
  3. Place empty or partially filled ice tray under tap water.
  4. Allow water to fill and roll over into all empty units of the ice tray
  5. Carefully return ice tray with water completely covering ice tray to the freezer
  6. Slide ice tray into ice tray holder in designated spot in freezer
  7. Close Freezer door and return to daily activities for 2 to 2.5 hours depending on appliance settings

I hope every one can attempt to make this wonderful recipe. It has become such a staple in our home and those around us. As we have enjoyed this delightful recipe, it has become easier and easier to make this for our family. I hope you enjoy it, and share your experience with us on how it went for you in your recipe test kitchen!

Ingard here, ions ago I did Weight Watchers and came across this recipe for a

Fat Free delicious cake that was very low in WW points

(how many WW points you ask, sadly it is lost in the hamster wheel in my head now, LoL)

Ingredients are:

Angle Food cake mix (in my area prices ranged from $2.29 to $1.89 ~ you can use store or name brand)

1 can of crushed pineapple (20oz)

While the direction on the box don’t request a greased or even greased and floured Angel Food Cake Pan

pan preparation is optional (I have done it both ways)

dump crushed pineapple in cake mix and stir until well blended

(be sure to give yourself a bowl with room as it expands with bubbles 🙂

Bake as directed on package for your pan choice. Allow to cool then turn cake out of pan.

This could be made in a 13×9 pan as well and be just an delicious.

****************

Now here is my confession.

I hadn’t made this in several years and in my memory it was puffy like an Angel food cake can be.

You are seeing my 3rd attempt at getting this pretty and still flat fallen cake.

Now don’t get me wrong the other 2 cakes were happily consumed and were delish!

In fact this one fell as well and was also happily consumed (good thing it is Fat Free).
