Image Quick, easy, and not too hot in the kitchen garden recipes
By Lance Gardner on July 26, 2010

I hope the YumYum Divas don't start chasing me with those beaters after posting some recipes, but I thought it would be good to share some summer recipes. These are recipes that are quick, easy, and don't require the oven, or even much stove time, so they don't heat up the kitchen or house that much, either. And, they are invented by me, so you can share them as you want to, although I would appreciate being recognized as the inventor.

I will have to give a couple of these a try. Not sure I'd like green stuff on my eggs though. I'll be improvising. Thank you, Lance.

Rolling on the floor laughing Looks like your recipes would be right at home on my cubit "Recipes -- Mostly Quick and Easy" too. I don't have a scary eggbeater, but I do welcome new recipes!

Thanks for sharing some good ideas for summer meals. Those are definitely not my grandmother's fried egg sandwiches that I was afraid to eat when I was little.

Good to see the recipes getting positive reviews, and even wanted by official recipe Cubits. So, in order not to play favorites, anyone who wants to a copy for their own section can have one, as long as you recognize where they came from.
Sharon, self-admitted non-cook, I hope these are easy enough for even you to make them and be tasty.

Well gosh, Lance, of course they are easy enough for me to follow. Ummmmmmm...now if only my basil were not so crispy crunchy from the drought. (Any old excuse will do, you know.)

And good morning, Skye. I like your smileys! Smiling

Thank you for the permission and we will add them to the database once we make them (your name will be listed as the contributor & we will put a link in the recipe to your article. I'll for sure do the egg one as I love eggs.

Sharron,
You can come to my house for lunch.

I have been watering my veggie garden every day, so it is doing OK, but that is the only garden doing well. Everything else is dry as yours, and looks terrible. I have a deep well, so I am not concerned about running it dry, fortunately.
Arlene, if you would like the word document with the recipes, I can send it to your email. Send a c-mail with your address, and you will get lots. I made a few changes after I put it in, but the important parts are still there.

Yes...I love egg sammies too!!! Currently on a LOW LOW Carb diet and simply leave off the bread...use more tomatoes instead!!! Also eat Tuna and Chicken Salad out of Romaine Lettuce Boats.!!!

Arlene...have looked for a Low to Zero Carb section on your Cubit but can't find anything...you have one?
Leap. The net will appear.

Hi Carol,
(sorry to hijack you, Lance). No one has even started a thread on the subject so there hasn't been much interest shown.

This is what is in the database so far:

Low Carb Recipes

We can give Lance a break and move the discussion to this new thread for people who are interested:

I may hijack my own section, even, in regards to low carb diets. I highly recommend avoiding low carb diets, as I have seen several people get messed up on them, have read very little good about them, and a lot of bad. Unless there is some specific medical condition necessitating carb removal, it is much better to pay attention to the types consumed, concentrating on whole grain, not as processed, whole food based items. The white bread, pasta, sugared cereal and drinks, and similar items are what cause most of the negative reactions in people, as these simple carbohydrates react fast with the body. Complex carbohydrates are digested much more slowly, and of course fiber (non-digested carbohydrates) cleans you out.
You may want to check out Dr. Weil's website for more information. He likes to push his supplements, but has lots of good information on his site, as well.
Here is a recent email link I received: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/TIP03758/Cooking-Whole-Grains.ht...

Not getting fanatical about it, Lance...my Dr. has recommended it. No one thing is good for everyone... I have a theory that a lot of the information we get is based on the industrial/ag complex pushing fat=evil, carbs=good for $$$$$. Gotta keep that HFCS pumping out and the subsidies rolling in!!!

Not doing Atkins....just keeping carbs down under 50-150 to lose and maintain with 300carbs. I feel great! I don't eat any simple carbs ever.... Lovey dubby
