    I'll post the link to the "receipt" since it is so off my diet that I fear that my blood sugar levels will go off-scale just typing it. :eek:

    How to Make a Schadenfreude Pie | Whatever

    Warning: tons of carbs per itty-bitty slice.

    Another "receipt" (although I might have posted it before in this thread... :oops:)

    Puff Pancake

    1/2 c. milk
    2 eggs
    3 T. sugar or sugar substitute
    1/8 t. cinnamon
    1/2 c. flour
    2 T. butter or margarine

    Preheat oven to 425° F.

    Mix the first five ingredients thoroughly. Melt butter in a 9" pan (I use a skillet) and pour the batter into pan. Bake for 18 minutes.

    I have used pumpkin pie spice blend instead of cinnamon for another "sweet" pancake, and I've used chili powder, garam masala or Chinese five spice powder for a savory (reducing the sugar/"sugar" to 1 T.)

    Homemade Waffles

    2 c. self-rising flour (can use roughly the same amount of all-purpose/plain flour mixed with 1 T. baking powder and 1 t. salt)
    1 c. milk (can use buttermilk/sour milk if desired)
    3 eggs
    2 t. sugar or sugar substitute
    1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted

    Preheat waffle iron.
    Mix everything thoroughly. Pour on hot iron and cook until waffle reaches desired doneness (I use a soup ladle to measure out the batter.) Serve.

    You can add chopped nuts, cocoa, cheese, crisped bacon, minced ham, herbs and/or spices if desired

    Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

    1 qt. pumpkin ice cream or pumpkin gelato
    1 9" deep dish cookie crumb crust (using gingerbread, crisp spicy oatmeal or ginger snaps)

    Soften the pumpkin ice cream, then carefully fill the cookie crumb crust. Freeze until firm, decorate (if desired) and serve.

    I do the baby carrots with one seasoning, Brussels sprouts in garlic oil, pineapple with cayenne, potatoes with black pepper, and onions coated in Italian seasoning....layer them in starting with taters ending with pineapple each by its cooking time about every five - seven minutes something else goes in...mirroring the time it takes to.cut and season... Make an avacado, cranberry and walnut salad, and whip up avacodo and cocoa and honey into a pudding...during the last 10 minutes while the pineapples are cooking and that be my whole meal, pull that chocolate pudding out for desert and life is good.

    I finished off an "experiment"/WiP: macaroni and cheese with the addition of salsa, chopped onion and chopped bell pepper.

    Zesty Macaroni and Cheese
    7 oz. macaroni or pasta
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 large bell peppers, chopped
    2 T. oil
    2 t. plain/all-purpose flour
    dash black pepper
    dash garlic powder
    salt to taste
    1/2 c. lowfat milk
    1 c. grated Colby jack cheese
    1/2 c. salsa (or to taste)

    Cook pasta in 2 qts. water until al dente, adding the onion and bell peppers towards the end.
    Heat oil; add flour and seasonings, stir constantly. Slowly add milk, stir until thickened, then add cheese. Fold/stir in salsa, then cooked pasta mixture. Eat. :D

    Brown Rice and Cheese (WiP)
    3 c. water
    1/2 c. brown rice
    Salt to taste
    2 T. butter or margarine
    2 T. all-purpose/plain flour
    1/2 c. lowfat milk
    Shredded cheese to taste (I use at least 1/2 c., sometimes more)

    Cook the rice in the water with a little salt until water's almost completely absorbed.

    Melt butter and add flour, cook and stir for a few seconds. Add milk and cook until thickened. Add cheese and stir until thoroughly combined. Add salsa and rice, mixing everything until combined. Eat.

    I just picked up a container of gochu-jang, which is a hot pepper paste from Korea. Now I've got to find some "receipts" that call for it...

    Never had problems with gas, myself. Can't say the same for everyone, though. :(

    "Vegans never run out of gas"

    (vegan myself, moderate issues. Depends on a person's gut flora, apparently, how it deals with certain carbohydrates)

    I'm not a vegan myself, just don't eat meat except during Passover (and only chicken outside of my apartment.)
