No Egg Lemon Pie with Oatmeal Crust Recipe

Image
I wanted to make a homemade lemon pie, I mean a real lemon pie made from scratch rather than one from a box mix. So I started sifting through my recipes but I was shocked by the amount of eggs required in a single lemon pie. Wow 4 or 5.

One large egg contains about 214 mg of cholesterol while the total daily recommended consumption for cholesterol for a person is around 300 mg per day. Studies now suggest that eggs may not be a contributing factor in excess cholesterol but I really didn't want to take the risk.

My guy has high cholesterol running in his family and I wanted a healthy dessert that he could enjoy guilt free. So I created my own low cholesterol lemon pie recipe. I designed an eggless lemon filling and combined it with an oatmeal pie crust I had previously refined. The combination tastes great together and this dessert is easier to make than you might think.

I went online to search for an eggless lemon pie recipe but I was pretty disappointed with the results. So being a …

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls from Scratch

Image
The smell of home baking just naturally shouts out a welcome to those who come through your front door. 

The scent of cinnamon on the freshly baking bread is deliriously delicious. It lets your tummy know that something very good is baking in the oven. On the days that I bake my husband a big batch of his favourite buns I can see a great big smile spreading across his face as soon as he walks through the door.

Hot cinnamon rolls smothered in butter are a recipe that spells out H-A-P-P-Y. There really is nothing quite as welcoming as being served up a tall glass of milk alongside a fresh baked cinnamon bun. So today I'm going to share this recipe with you. Toward the bottom of the page you will find a printable version of the recipe.
My cinnamon rolls are made with half white flour and half brown flour but you can use just white flour and the recipe will still be delicious. I do find that using just white flour when baking my cinnamon rolls allows the buns to rise a little higher than…

Poached Salmon Fillet Recipe

Salmon is a nutritious food whether it is fried, baked, poached, or canned. There are many ways to cook it but this poached fillet recipe really is a nice twist for this meat fish. With lemon steamed into the fillets as they cook this recipe creates a meal that is not only delicious but one that is also highly nutritious as well.


Salmon is a rich source of protein and as a benefit is loaded with healthy omega 3 fats and vitamin D. Omega 3 are essential fats that your body requires for health and are excellent for heart and brain health. When you decide to cook up a salmon you just can't go wrong. So pull out a deep depth frying pan, pop on your pretty little apron, and let's cook up a meal of energy rich fish.

In this recipe I am using High Liner fish fillets. They are nice to cook with as the work of filleting the fish is already done for you and the size of each portion is ideal making it easy to adjust the cooking to the number of people you will be serving. I find that one p…

Pear Cobbler Recipe: Peach if You Prefer

Image
Fruit cobbler is an old country recipe traditionally served as a dessert while peaches or pears are in season. For those who have fruit trees it is a dish that often shows up at harvest time as an after dinner dessert or as a late evening snack. At the peak of the harvest it is a dish commonly taken to share with friends at community events.

Peach cobbler is a dessert recipe that has been welcomed onto supper tables far more times than one can mention. Sweet, delicious, nutritious, and oozing with the juicy goodness that only a great fruit dessert can have. This recipe is generally made using peaches, pears, or apricots but as we have a pear tree in our backyard this is the fruit that we generally put into ours. It is a delightfully refreshing dessert recipe that brings with it all the summertime warmth of a fresh fruit harvest. 

Pear cobbler is a dish that tastes like it has traveled direct from the orchard to the kitchen table. It is delightfully refreshing. So don your apron and lets…

Easter Bunny Stew Recipe

Add a delicious new twist to your Easter meal. What could be more delightful for this spring holiday than a great big bowl of Easter bunny stew.

It is deliciously nutritious and a very novel method of ridding the world of leftover Easter bunnies. So pull out your best pot and prepare to heat up your family a great big scrumptious feeding of bunny stew. This traditional Easter dish is one that the whole family is going to look forward to. The ingredients for this dish are easily adaptable to serve any number of people so if you are expecting company it is still the perfect dish to serve. 

My rabbit stew recipe will serve about 6 but you can easily adjust the ingredients to match the number of people who will be dining on it. Simply use less of the ingredients for fewer people and more if you are planning on feeding a larger group. If you are planning on serving a large number of people you may want to consider using three or four Easter bunnies in your recipe rather than just the two I r…

Oooh these are definitely yummy home baked goodness. Crispy oatmeal with a hint of walnuts and the deliciously sweet texture of coconut all baked into one scrumptious snack. 

If you have cookie monsters in your home then you need to check out this coconut cookie recipe. Tasting similar to the Dad's cookies you find at the grocery store these are good old fashioned country goodness. There is so much more to enjoy about these cookies than simply the fact that they are a tasty tidbit. They are also pretty darn good for you. On rushed morning I often have a couple of these alongside a glass of milk and it gives me the morning energy boost I need.

The ingredient list says it all: Coconut, oatmeal, eggs, and walnuts. All those ingredients have elements in them that are good for you. I love that cookies contain oatmeal because it  is always deliciously nutritious.
