This site has comprehensive information about how long you can keep thousands of foods and beverages. Now, that's good info to have if you ask me :)
1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter
2/3 cup white basmati rice
1 lime (juice)
1-2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons fresh cilantro
1. In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted.
2. Add rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute.
3. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. **The original recipe calls for 1 cup of water, but I have read reviews that people use 2 and it works well. I used 1 1/2 and I kind of think it could have gone either way. If you like your rice dryer, go with less water; more sticky, go with more.**
4. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
5. Add in the cilantro and fluff rice with a fork.

Cool Whip Free; frozen
1 can diet soda
1 flexy straw :)
Pour soda into a glass. Top off glass with a scoop of frozen fat-free Cool Whip. Insert straw and enjoy! TIP...about an hour before serving, put a glass mug in the freezer for a frosty float!
This is another base recipe you can make however you like. I have used diet orange soda and diet root beer. It's yummy and totally guilt free!!

Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Beat 4 eggs in a small mixing bowl. Add the eggs to a greased frying pan, season with salt and pepper, and scramble them lightly. Transfer the eggs to a plate and reserve.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the baking mix, milk and remaining egg to make the batter. Gently stir in the reserved scrambled eggs and shredded cheese.
Deposit dollops of the batter onto a greased baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.
This is a great base recipe. Made as is, they are a little bland, but they work well for kids. You can add cooked bacon, ham, broccoli, green chilis...really anything to create a filling, easily portable, and delicious breakfast.
