Labels on food containers are great, since they provide us with nutrition facts. They tell us the calories per serving and the total fats, carbohydrates, sodium, dietary fiber, protein and sugars. Of course, there is the list of ingredients listed on the label as well. The product label may even state this particular food item was manufactured on shared equipment with products that may contain tree nuts and/or peanuts. This is vital due to children and adults who have a life-threatening allergy to nuts. Other food allergens include, but are not limited to the following: wheat, gluten (proteins...

Healthy peanut butter pretzel apple crisp
Healthy peanut butter pretzel apple crisp
Hi everyone! I am a health conscious volleyball player who was trying to make a energy packed but still nutritious breakfast bowl that was fast and easy! So here's the recipe I came up with! One serving is about 260 calories!
1/2 apple
10 small pretzels
1 tbs peanut butter
1 tbsp cranberries
1/8 cup Quaker oats
Cinnamon (optional)

How to make it :P

Chop up the apple and mix with cranberries. Next, crush up pretzels so that the pieces are small but not completely crushed. In a small bowl mix apples and cranberries with pretzels and peanut butter. Press mix into toaster safe baking pan. Mine was about 5-6" long and 3" wide. Add a little water over top (not alot). Finally sprinkle oats over top evenly and place bowl in toaster. Set to bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes!

Hope you try it! Enjoy! ;D

The cake itself is simple: a delicate one-layer sponge with a pretty intense coffee flavor. But the real kick in this version of the cake comes with the syrup that later saturates the cake -- more coffee, naturally with whiskey in it -- and then with the topping, rich with double cream as a good Irish Coffee topping should be, flavored with yet more whiskey, and finished off with an inspired sprinkling of that best-loved of Irish native nuts, the hazelnut.
Ingredients:
For the cake:* 2/3 cup / 120g / 4 ounces butter * 3/4 cup / 120g / 4 ounces granulated sugar / caster sugar * 3/4 cup / 120g...

Scallop Congee is one of my most oft cooked congee for weekend lunch. Okay, make it Scallop Porridge for those who are more familiar with the word porridge. Actually, it’s the same. And whichever name you call it, it will still taste as good though I suspect the word “congee” sounds much more sophisticated and refined to be used.

For this congee, I use dried scallops which I purchase from the wet market. You can get them from supermarkets and some chinese herbal shops or even, dried sea produce. I use those which are relatively small in size – perhaps about the size of half a pop corn...
