Tofu Stir fry

Today's menu is on the healthier side:

Tofu Stir Fry

Start out with a good stir fry pan...

I started out with chopped onions and a firm tofu from Trader Joe's (that I chopped up as well)
Then I added a reduced sodium soy sauce to the mix and started to saute.

Next...add green beans, mushrooms and broccoli (or whatever you like) and sauteed for a about 1 minute and then add a large handful or two of spinach and some more soy sauce...cook down the spinach and depending on how crunchy you like your veggies will decipher how much longer you will want to cook this wonderful mixture.

Easy to make in less than 10 minutes!!!

Holiday Chocolate Mint Rice Krispy Treats

We made these wonderful treats in my cooking class yesterday! Super easy and fast to make and the kids kept saying "these taste like the thin mint girl scout cookies"!!!

3 tablespoons  butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40)  regular marshmallows
or 4 cups  miniature marshmallows
1 1/2 teaspoons  peppermint flavoring
6 cups Cocoa Rice Krispies
1 cup of holiday M&M's 


1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir until completely melted. 
Remove from heat. Stir in peppermint.
2. Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats® cereal. Stir until well coated. Let the mixture slightly cool and stir in the M&M's.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.
For best results, use fresh marshmallows.
1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme can be substituted for marshmallows.
Diet, reduced calorie or tub margarine is not recommended.
Store no more than two days at room temperature in airtight container. To freeze, place in layers separated by wax paper in airtight container. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.
