I'd skip the curry powder and just make soup. You have the ingredients for that.

I mix 1/2 avocado with 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese. Don't see why you can't throw some broccoli into the mix. I'm going to try it. I also like to sprinkle my avocado with a little fresh lemon juice. Serve this on a bed of kale. I've also done an avocado, hard boiled egg, kale and broccoli salad with a yogurt and balsamic dressing using a little honey to sweeten the dressing. Hope this helps.

I have scallops, lemon, orange peppers, chicken stock, garlic, and pasta. What can I make with this?

By Brenda

Oh, I forgot...add some lemon zest to the sauce right before its done, and after it's finished (ie, already on your plate). Squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over top. You want to lemon at the end. It tastes acidic, but in its natural state it is alkaline. Adding heat makes it more acidic and not so good for your digestive system (the closer to raw the better).

What can I make with apples, butter, flour, three eggs, syrup, and raisin bran? I'm limited to these ingredients at my beach house.

By Kristina

Cook sliced, peeled apples in water until soft. Drain, then add syrup to sweeten. Cut the flour with the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Roll out into dough. Cut into wedges or rounds. Fill with apples, fold over. Bake in the oven as apple turnovers.

The raisin bran doesn't come into it, but you could eat it dry as a snack later.

I have flour, sugar, milk, eggs, and cinnamon.

By S Long

Is it all-purpose or self-rising? If self-rising, you can do this. If all purpose, you'll need to add a little baking powder to the flour.

Then add an egg and milk. Make a dough. Roll or pat out the dough into a rectangle. Cover with a little soft butter or margarine and cover that with sugar and cinnamon.

Roll like a jelly roll and cut into slices. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake until cinnamon rolls are done.

Here is an absolutely perfect tool for searching recipes by ingredient:

http://www.supercook.com/

Type all of them in one by one and click the 'add' button in between each ingredient. After you're done look to the right and you will find oodles of assorted recipes. :-) Oh, and if you have some parmesan and olive oil on hand you can try this quick and easy pasta dish recently posted here at ThriftyFun:

Garlic Linguini

This is a quick pasta dish and heaven for garlic lovers! Excellent served with a salad tossed with balsamic or red wine vinaigrette and crusty bread smothered with unsalted butter. This dish tastes great reheated the next day if you have leftovers too.

Ingredients:

1 lb linguini

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp minced garlic, or more to taste

1/4 cup parmesan or asiago cheese, grated

Extra grated parmesan or asiago cheese for garnish, if desired

Directions:

Bring a pot of water to a boil, add linguini and cook al dente according to package directions.

While pasta is cooking heat a small skillet or saucepan over low heat, add olive oil and garlic, sauté until garlic is fragrant and remove from heat.

Drain pasta, return to pasta pot, immediately pour olive oil and garlic over the pasta, stir to coat, stir in the cheese and serve.

I have hamburger, cheese, biscuit dough, onions, and tomato products.

By Dawn B

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
October 28, 20140 found this helpful

You could make a "cheeseburger pie"...although you didn't say now many servings you needed.

Basically, it's a recipe my mom made. She layered the bottom of a casserole dish with a thin layer of tomato sauce. Then, she sauteed ground beef, onions (and sometimes green pepper or celery, if we had some), seasoning it with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Then she topped the cooked meat layer with shredded or diced cheese (She usually made two sets of layers but you don't need to). Just add more tomato sauce, and finish it off with a layer of bread crumbs.

Heat in a 350F oven until the crumbs are browned, maybe 15 minutes. Or you could use your biscuit dough, that would be even better! Cook the casserole until the biscuits are done, at the temperature and however long it says to cook them.

It was pretty cheap, and it tasted good. She also served it with wedges of lettuce, if we had some, so it really was like a cheese burger.
