Lantana,

Isn't that the BEST stuff you have tasted in a LONG time?!?!?!? I couldn't believe how GREAT it tasted and how EASY it was to put together!! My daughters and roommates LOVED it.....there weren't any leftovers that night, but the first time I made it we had leftovers and it was even better the next night!! I'm glad that you enjoyed it.....I sure did!!

Healthy Deviled Eggs

12 eggs

6 yolks

1/2 cup lowfat cottage cheese (pureed in blender)

2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish

3 tablespoons light mayonnaise

Mustard to taste

paprika

Sounds good, Lavinia! (Of course, I'd MUCH prefer the Blue/Bleu in the mix, instead... ;) )

This one is VERY easy to prepare and may sound all fancy smancy but its REALLY simple and I LIKE easy and Im not into cooking myself, so I like fast and easy.

You can buy this ingredient at Walmart. They sell fish called "Tilapita" and they come in the freezer section and are marinated in a lemon type sauce in individual pouches. The lemon one is the best!

Im not a fishy person. But I like salmon and I like THIS.

You just remove it from the pouch and put it in a glass baking pan in the oven set to the time specified.

THATS ALL and throw it in, its already marinated.

Then make some Quinoa (For those who wonder what the heck that is?) Its a grain that is in little balls, you just boil water and add in a cup of it, cook it just like rice. Im not sure if Walmart sells it, but we find it at Trader Joes. Look near the Rice and CousCous section or specialty food in other stores to find it.

Put the Quinoa on your plate and then put a piece of the Tilapita on top. Eat it together.

My kids even really like it!

The second 'Lazy Pizza' (obviously the first and best is above)

1pkt small round pita bread or lebanese bread - available in most supermarkets but you can use the single serves of oven ready pizza dough or normal sandwich bread

a couple of kids

some pasta sause - or anything that is tomatoe based and a little runny

fave vegies - capsicum, mushroom,eggplant, zucchini, pinapple, artichoke, olives, sun dried tomatoes

fave deli meats - Kabana, chorizo suasage, kransky, cut into rounds, and shredded ham and/or bacon

fave cheese - mozzarrella, boccocini, cheddar, parmessan

Method

Grab a spoon and spread tomatoe base thinly to cover bread

Pour glas of wine and round up kids

Instruct kids to place favourite ingredients all chopped up (unless they are old enough to do that themselves, in which case this is easier than you thought)

on top of bread. place in the oven, and come back when glass is empty - unless you drink slow as 10-15 mins is long enough

Sometimes requires a second glass of wine while waiting.

When kids want recipe for dessert tell them they have to do tea dishes first...
