I make baked fish this way :
Fish filets
Finely chopped pecans
Italian breadcrumbs
Parmesan cheese
Mix those three ingredients together, coat all side of the filets with it. Place on a Pam prepared with foil and pam or butter. Top breaded filets with pats of butter. Bake until flaky. Delicious

the pina colada chicken was a standard in our house during refeeding. I doubled the batch and added 1 large can of pineapple chunks as well. Also served with rice made with butter in the water. And then some cooked carrots with butter. and a big GOM.  So the meal would add around 1000 or more.

 

DH was not home but wanted something special for dd and she had recently requested that i make some pillsbury biscuits. So I put together the following meal..... baked haddock (fresh from market but already prepped as lemon/garlic breaded fillets)  Served appetizer of clam chowder, dd thought this was fun since we ussually don't have an appetizer.  We had the grand buttermilk biscuits, and beets with butter on the side. And big GOM. She loved it and ate every bite!!

DuckyLou,

Several months before my daughter was officially diagnosed she was obsessed with cooking and cooking shows.  I believe a lot of ED sufferers do this.  My daughter would make these gourmet meals for us.   I'm not sure why this  happens.  My theory is that they feel they can get "close" to food by preparing it for others but not really eating it themselves.  Does that make sense ?

Anyway, great job on the 900 plus calorie dinner.  Great Job Mom ! Keep it up!

I made the Ham and Hash brown casserole for dinner last night.

I didn't have cream of potato soup so I used cream of celery. Worked out fine.  Also, in order to increase a little bit of calories , I sauteed an onion and a pepper in some olive oil before mixing everything together and throwing it in the casserole dish. It brought it to a little over 700 calories per serving.  Served 6  Came out really good.  ED daughter loved it and even said next time it would be better with a little jalapeno to give it a little kick.

  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts
  • 4 ounces chopped peanuts

  1. o Make Marinade: Combine 1 tablespoon wine, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon cornstarch/water mixture and mix together. Place chicken pieces in a glass dish or bowl and add marinade. Toss to coat. Cover dish and place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
  2. To Make Sauce: In a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon wine, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon oil, 1 tablespoon cornstarch/water mixture, chili paste, vinegar and sugar.

Believe, so glad you're back! The Kung Pao chicken looks amazing; I'm buying the ingredients today to make it tomorrow.

Alwaysvigilant, nuts can be ground up fine in the food processor or blender and added to things. Pecans don't have a strong flavor; they just thicken things up a bit and add some good nutrition. Gobsmacked also shared that Epicurious Cashew Chicken curry a few pages back.  I increased the ground cashews in that recipe.  My family loved it; and the nuts are not obvious.  After I served it my non-ED daughter said "We had cashew curry chicken but I didn't get any cashews!" It's really good!

You can easily add nuts to things like cookies, brownies, muffins, etc. Even use it as a sundae topping. Add it to oatmeal or cereal- that's what I prefer since I don't like nuts in baked goods (I'm the opposite of your daughter- I'd rather eat nuts plain than in something). Sliced almonds are really good for this. For most of these, you'll probably want to chop the nuts up pretty well. Another option is nut butters. There are all types if your daughter gets sick of plain peanut butter. Thai food uses a lot of nuts in it as well. 

Also, those peanut noodles are going on my menu for later this week. Yum!

I made Malia's Coconut Chicken and Rice soup for lunch. It was Amazing. I could have eaten the whole thing.  The recipe says it serves 4 but I would say more like 2-3 servings.  Calories per serving are about 600.

I garnished with cilantro and green onions.



ETA ~ If you split this into 3 servings the calories are 811 per serving

Believe, thanks for the Kung Pao chicken recipe. My husband always orders that when we go out. I have to make it.

Breathingmom, thanks for reminding me about the cashew chicken. We loved it, but my mind is like a sieve these days. I'd totally forgotten.

It's Passover. At this point in our lives we no longer go to any extremes for Passover, but we do keep some traditions we love.

Over the week of Passover one isn't supposed to eat bread or anything that has "risen." Matzoh is substituted for a lot of that. Our family has a few favorite foods for the week. 

One is matzoh brei, a traditional breakfast or lunch dish, and as I made it this morning, I realized it is a good recipe for this thread. Giving a matzoh brei recipe is kind of a dangerous thing -- everyone makes it differently: some use more eggs, some make it dryer, some make it a little more like french toast, some make it more like scrambled eggs, etc.), and people are wed to their family recipes. Some people insist it should be served with sugar or syrup and others prefer it savory (me included). So I'm giving you a basic recipe here, and you can play with it.

This amount served my two daughters:

4 pieces matzoh
4 eggs
3/4 stick butter
salt

Break the matzoh into large pieces into a colandar. Run it under cold water for about 15 seconds. Put the matzoh into a bowl.

Beat the eggs with a fork and add to the matzo. 

Melt the butter in a large pan over medium high heat, add the matzoh/egg mixture, allow to set  a bit and then scramble as you would for scrambled eggs. Salt to taste and serve.

Another favorite is Marcy Goldman's Trademark, Most Requested, Absolutely Magnificent Caramel Matzoh Crunch: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/My-Trademark-Most-Requested-Absolutely-Magnificent-Caramel-Matzoh-Crunch-109117 (it's crazy good).

How can I bring D out of her coma after one of these?    

I've been making a few cookies-n-cream shakes with 1/2 cup HWC and  1/2 cup 1% milk but your shake takes the prize..

Breakfast this morning:  Sausage casserole

I only used 1 lb of sausage and it was more than enough.   Used a 3 cheese mix instead of mozzarella.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground pork sausage
  • 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Lay crescent rolls flat in the bottom of the pan. Combine cooked sausage, cheese, eggs, milk, salt and pepper; pour over crescent rolls.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, until bubbly and rolls are baked.

For the non americans among us, are crescent rolls croissants? So that means you use the non cooked croissants you buy frozen?

Just googled and seriously? You buy this stuff in a refrigerated tube? dough? Or a can? On my list now to check out next time in US.
So does anyone know if this would work with uncooked croissants?

Yes, in a refrigerated tube.  

The casserole turned out great BTW.    Super easy to make and quick too.

I only have one rule about cooking:   I won't fix anything that takes longer to cook than it does to eat.

made this chicken lo mein with vegetables last night. I made it with leftover spaghetti noodles that I had in the fridge. Just boiled the water with the boullion cubes and then added the noodles for just a few minutes since they were already cooked. I used store bought cole slaw mix, no bok choy, and i also added a can of water chestnuts to the recipe. It turned out great. I served it with egg rolls on the side. and dd took some to school for lunch today!

I made the Kung Pao chicken posted by Believe the other day.  It was easy and good -- you can increase the quantities of peanuts and oil for more nutrition. I also sauteed zucchini and added it instead of the water chestnuts so that it included a green veggie.

At AMoma's request:

This is the recipe I used for monkey bread:


I used half & half instead of milk in the dough, and we considered a 6th of the loaf to be a serving for our d. I guess it isn't as dense as birthday cake -- it's more like a cinnamon roll.

I love Smitten Kitchen so much. It's hard to go wrong with any of her recipes, and she never skimps on the fat and sugar. Take a look around her site while you are there.
