Fried Cabbage and Polish Sausage

1 large head cabbage
1 package polish sasauge-any variety
1 onion chopped
chopped banana pepper/bell pepper
Cut cabbage in quarters, put in strainer and run water over, cut in slices. Put 3 tablespoons of olive oil, or oil of choice in skillet on low heat, add cabbage/salt and black pepper to taste, put lid on and let wilt down till about half, stir and add 1/2 cup water, polish, onion and chopped pepper and let cook until it is the way you like it.

Make a pan of cornbread and it is a tasty meal by itself.

Swirled Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake topping
4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
1/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Brownie layer

2/3 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup strong (or prepared instant) coffee, or black tea
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 7-by-11-inch brownie pan or baking pan with cooking spray. To prepare topping: Place cream cheese in a small mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add sugar and beat until smooth. Add egg, flour, yogurt and vanilla. Beat until well blended.

To prepare brownie layer: Whisk whole-wheat flour, cocoa and salt in a bowl. Place egg, egg whites and brown sugar in a large bowl and beat with the electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add oil, coffee (or tea) and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed just until well blended, stopping once to scrape down the sides. Scrape about half of the brownie batter into the prepared pan. Slowly pour the topping evenly on top. Drop the remaining brownie batter in large dollops over the topping. Draw the tip of a sharp knife or skewer through the two batters to create a swirled effect. Bake the brownies until the top is just firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Coat a knife with cooking spray and cut into 24 bars.

Enjoy these recipes and add them to your files to try at a later time if you can't get to them right away. Have a great week, and until next time, happy cooking.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
