Butter-flavor cooking spray
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
4 large peach(es), peeled, halved and pitted
Off heat, lightly coat grill grate with cooking spray; preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Sprinkle cinnamon evenly over cut sides of peaches; lightly coat with cooking spray.
Place peaches on grill, cut side down. Grill until browned and slightly softened, about 5 minutes. (For best results, do not move the peaches during grilling; this will ensure the attractive grill marks and keep the peaches from sticking to the grill.)
Turn peaches over and grill on other side for about 3 minutes more; serve warm.
You may want to Serve with a little bit of ice cream!

1 boneless beef top round roast (3-1/4 pounds)
2 tablespoons browning sauce, optional
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion, sliced
1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened sliced pineapple
1/4 cup Domino® or C&H® Pure Cane Dark Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 medium green pepper, sliced
Directions: Cut roast in half; brush with browning sauce if desired. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; rub over meat. Place onion in a 3-qt. slow cooker; top with roast.
Drain pineapple, reserving juice; refrigerate the pineapple. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch and ginger; whisk in the broth, soy sauce, garlic and reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
Add pineapple and green pepper. Cook 1 hour longer or until meat and green pepper are tender. Yield: 10-11 servings.
I found this recipe a while ago in the simple and Delicious magazine and today I tried it...Justin loved it and so did I! It was a really good alternative to regular Pot Roast and I would definitely fix it again. I loved the Soy sauce and Pineapple flavors...very good! I fixed a baked potato and steamed carrots to go with it and we ate too much!

1 tsp Taco Seasoning
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 1/2 Cups prepared black bean and corn salsa
1/4 Cup fat free or lowfat sour cream
1 Tbs Lime Juice
Whole Wheat tortillas
2 Tbs coarsly chopped fresh cilantro
1 Scallion, Chopped
1-Heat skillet and combine hamburger, taco seasoning, salt, pepper. Cook until meat no longer pink. Stir in salsa and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
2-Combine lime juice and sour cream in a small bowl.
3-Place 1 warm tortilla on a plate and spoon 3/4 cup of the meat mixture onto the tortilla. Top with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with the cilantro and scallion.
Note: You could use ground skinless chicken breast instead of hamburger and cook it in a little olive oil with the taco seasoning, salt and pepper. Also, I used more taco seasoning than recipe calls for and I added some chopped spinach leaves on top with the cilantro to make them more taco like. I liked having something more than just meat in the tortilla. Hope you like them as much as we did!

2 Cup Wheat Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Vanilla

Soy milk to make it a batter for waffles.
Directions: Make the Dry Pancake mix above, add vanilla, egg, yogurt and soy milk
