Guacamole Salad
Ingredients: (My Essentials) lettuce tomato ripe avocado red onion lime juice worcestershire sauce salt & pepper to taste

Can sub a lime dressing. I like Newmans Own

(Seasonal Ad-Ons) carrots celery bell peppers whatever is in the garden or leftover in the fridge! Instructions: Chop lettuce, rince and pat dry. Next, load it up with all the vegetables! Dress with lime juice, worcestershire sauce and salt.

For me this tastes like a big bowl of guacamole! I satisfy my guac craving while eating a huge salad that leaves me feeling full. Its a real win-win!

Marissas Lasagna
1lb tofu (soft) 2 eggs cup of parmesan 2 teaspoons basil 2 teaspoons oregano 2 teaspoons thyme 1/4th teaspoon salt 1/4th teaspoon pepper Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.* Steam or sautee greens until wilted (if youre using collards youll have to cook for several hours). Set aside. Cook lasagna noodles according to package, drain and set aside. Combine tofu, eggs, parmesan, basil, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl and set aside. Spread olive oil along the bottom of large casserole dish. Next add 1/4 jar tomato sauce. Layer the following until you run out of room: (1) noodles, (2) tofu/ cheese mixture, (3) cooked greens and carrots, (4) thick layer of sauce, (5) mozzarella cheese. Its best to end with noodles, a thick layer of sauce and mozzarella cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30-40 minutes or until done. *I assemble the lasagna over the weekend and store it in the freezer until the day before I plan to serve it.

Strawberries & Cream White Cake
Ingredients: 1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup butter 2 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 cup milk strawberries 1 cup cream

Hatcher Dairy cream in Nashville is excellent!

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Cake is done when it springs back to the touch. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Top cake with straberries and whipped cream.

Be nice and leave them a review!
