Cranberry Coconut Bars
This is a microwave cookie that can be mixed right in the baking pan. How's that for convenience?
If you are not fond of dried cranberries, consider substituting dates, raisins, or chopped apricot pieces in this recipe.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup quick rolled oats
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup walnut pieces
Planning Help: Meal Two
One meal planning challenge for me has been to `lighten up' for my family's and my health. My husband and I were both raised on `meat and potatoes' so it has been a difficult change. But we are making gradual progress.
One way to lighten up is by substituting ground turkey for ground beef. To us, this is a huge taste difference and hard to get used to when we're used to the ground beef flavor. However, I have found recipes made especially for ground turkey and they are much better. The `Turkey Medallions With Orange Teriyaki Sauce' recipe you'll find below is one such recipe....
Parmesan Crusted Sole with Lemon Beurre Blanc
Sole/flounder is a refreshing sweet and mild flavored fish which allows it to be used in a variety of ways. With its long thin flesh, sole is often stuffed or used in other extravagant plate presentations. Because this fish is very thin it's a great choice to pan fry for a quick meal. Parmesan crusted sole is the best of both worlds, it's eloquent and fast. You can make it look even better with some fresh chives, tarragon or basil. Even if you don't like fish, you'll love this recipe.
Homemade Cinnamon Rolls from Scratch (in 2 hours or less!)
If I've heard it once, I've heard it a dozen times: "Make homemade cinnamon rolls? From scratch? Are you crazy? That takes all day!"
Actually, it depends upon the recipe.
I have several recipes for homemade cinnamon rolls that do, indeed, take at least all afternoon, if not all day -- scald the milk and let it cool to room temperature (30 minutes); mix the dough and let it raise for an hour (1.5 hours); punch down the dough and let it raise for another hour (1 hour); shape into cinnamon rolls and let raise for another hour (1....

Frugal Outdoor Cooking
Firing up the grill is a great way to cook in the summer! Here are a few grilling tips and a couple of recipes, too.
For great grilled burgers, form the patty gently. Smashing the meat forces out moisture.
Sear both sides of the burger on both sides, then move the burger and cook with indirect heat till done.
Use a meat thermometer to gauge when the meat is done. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
When grilling chicken, remember that dark meat needs longer on the grill than breast meat....
