High Recipes

 I am constantly on the lookout for high-cal, high-fat, high-protein, high-nutrition recipes. I've posted quite a few food ideas here under the label "Weekend Recipes." Here are three recent gems.

From Ann Romney's delightful cookbook/memoir, I discovered a sweet sauce that nothing shall supersede  I plan to put this on pancakes and every single coffee cake forever and ever. Amen.

1 C sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 C heavy cream
1/2 t vanilla

 Warm it all up and pour it on!


In my quest to sneak coconut oil into as many places as possible, some venues have bombed like milkshakes (once it came into contact with ice cream it hardened into little oil balls, which was not nice) but this one has been the bomb: mix some with dulche de leche and spread it on stuff or dip fruit into it. I mix 2:1, dulche to coconut oil.

We eat salmon twice a week, once grilled, baked, or fried; and once in a leftover dish. My favorite Alaska Magazine cookbook recommends making potato pancakes and adding leftover cooked, flaked salmon (or canned if you don't catch and cook your own) to the mix. I fry them in butter of course. The high part is the egg sauce (sauce again).

2 hard-boiled, finely chopped eggs
2 T  butter
1 T flour
1 C milk (I use half and half)
Seasonings to taste (We like salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and parsley)

Melt the butter. Gradually stir in the flour and stir for a minute or two. Add milk all at once and continue stirring to a medium thickness. Add in seasonings and eggs. Pour over salmon cakes. Actually, I quadruple the recipe because there's a lot of us and because the kids like the cakes to swim in it.

Here's hoping our CFers put on lots of weight!

Love, Allison
