Goodbye Calories

spinach lasagne

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have had such a busy holiday season, cooking, baking, blogging and eating!.

I did a lot of cooking and entertaining and didn't have time to post everything, so here are a few things I made that didn't make it to Stacey Snacks.

I just want to warn you: there is nothing green on this page (though I swear, I made a lot of vegetables!).

You can click on the links for the recipes if you like.

I made 2 Torta Rusticas, filled w/ ricotta cheese, prosciutto, spinach and roasted peppers. Delicious.



I baked many datenut breads to give away, but this time instead of using vegetable oil, I used olive oil, and I liked it even better, if that's possible.



I made a sausage and spinach lasagne from Scott Conant's Food & Wine recipe this month, and we loved it.



and a challah raisin bread pudding.....which I will eventually post.



Nothing here is low calorie, so as of Monday, we can watch our calories together.
I am glad the holidays are over. I can barely fit into my jeans!

Hey, I saw spinach in two things there, that's healthy right!

Bob said...

Yeah, spinach makes it all good, right? Heh. It all sounds great though.

Stacey - I too, am having my last hurrah before the purge. I wish I could have had it at your house though.

Those are some good looking calories! It is going to be tough to get back to eating sensibly but *sigh* it must be done!

Stop!, You're killing me! I've been eating salads and vegetable soup, for most of the week, but tonight I'm baking that date nut bread of yours, I might try it with ww flour and splenda. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Kate said...

I am all ready for the lasagna and how about the challah raisin bread pudding for dessert? Sounds delicious!

Happy New Year to you and your family too Stacey. May this year bring lots of happiness.
Cheers,

p.s
I was so busy as well, we still have guests come and go until yesterday, and I am exhausted. Anyway, I have to start thinking about a low calorie food myself. Too much of good and unbelievably high calorie food during the holiday that I ate.

You really don't have to deprive yourself from those. Discipline is what we must practice to have enough calories!

Girl tell me about it. I avoided the scale most of the holiday season.

May your New Year be blessed and filled with skinny jeans. :D

I'm not weighing until I have to go to the Dr. again. What I don't know won't depress me!
