Chocolate PB Smoothie with Soymilk

Did you know that April is National Soyfoods Month?  Packed with protein and fiber, soyfoods are a great way to reduce calories, cholesterol, and saturated fat.  They also serve a as a great source of iron, calcium, vitamin B-12, magnesium and zinc. 

Soymilk is such a popular drink lately.  It's so convenient, because you can store it at room temperature, and then refrigerate it after opening it.  You can keep some in your cupboard, so you always have milk on hand.  How convenient is that?  I need to stock up on some!

Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) sent me a sample of soy products to try.  When I saw the container of WESTSOY Soymilk, I immediately wanted to make a smoothie with it.

I whipped up a chocolate peanut butter smoothie for breakfast and my kids slurped it up.  Delicious!  If you have a good blender add some spinach to it and no one will know that they're getting veggies too. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Serves 1

  • 1 c. WESTSOY Organic Original Soymilk
  • 1 banana
  • 2 T. (heaping) chocolate drink powder (like Nesquick)
  • 1 T. peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 2/3 c. crushed ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy! 

The Soyfoods Asociation of North Ameria (SANA) has lots of information about the health benefits of soy.  And they have lots of delicious recipes to try.  

Soy Milk Scalloped Potatoes and Edamame Hummus are just a few of the yummy looking recipes!

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
