Sagebrush Quilters Recipes

2 cups low fat cottage cheese

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar (or Splenda, or Splenda & Brown Sugar Mix)
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or more if you like)
Stir all ingredients together until well blended.  Yes, you can just put the ingredients in the blender and be done with it.
Heat griddle, spray with PAM. 
Use scant 1/4 cup of mix to pour into pan for the pancake.  Cook until nicely browned on one side, flip and continue cooking until browned and done on the inside. 
Serve with applesauce instead of butter and syrup.
NOTE:  If this pancake mixture is too thick, thin with milk.

Finger-Lickin’ Good Cake

1 package (18.25 ounces) plain yellow cake mix
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, undrained
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter (melted)
¼ cup vegetable oil, such as canola, corn, safflower, soybean, or sunflower
4 large eggs
Juice drained from 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple packed in juice (see below)

1 container (16 ounces) whipped topping, thawed
1 package (3.4 ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix (or pistachio)
1 cup unsweetened grated coconut
1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple packed in juice, drained (use the juice for the cake—above)

Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Spray a 9x13 pan with PAM
Place the cake mix, mandarin oranges and their juice, melted butter, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl.  Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.  Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 to 3 minutes more, scraping sides of bowl if needed.  The batter should look well blended and oranges should be broken up in the batter.  Put the batter in the pan and place in oven.
Bake the cake until it is golden brown and springs back when lightly pressed with your finger (24 to 27 minutes).  Remove from the oven.  While the cake is still warm, poke holes in the top with a toothpick or wooden skewer.  Pour the pineapple juice over the layers so that the cake soaks up all the juice.  Let the cake cool for an additional 30 minutes (at least).
Prepare the frosting.  Place the thawed cool whip, pudding mix, coconut, and the drained crushed pineapple in a large mixing bowl.  Stir with a wooden spoon until well combined and the pudding mix has dissolved.
Put the frosting on top of the cooled cake.  Store this cake, lightly covered in waxed paper for up to 1 week.

Fancy Baked Swiss Chard recipe
1 large bunch Swiss Chard
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup olive oil
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Italian, flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
4 oz. mushrooms, sliced (optional)
2 eggs, beaten
a few twists of the pepper mill
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Remove the white stalk portion from the bottom of the chard stems and reserve for some other use.  Wash, roll and slice the leaves.  Place in a deep pot with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook covered, over medium heat about 10 minutes, stirring often.  (No additional water should be needed as as the chard will cook with whatever moisture is clinging to the leaves)  Transfer to a strainer and squeeze dry.
In a deep skillet, add the oil, heat over medium heat and add the onions.  Cook until onions are just transparent and about to turn color.  Add the parsley, garlic, chard, mushrooms, and cook 4 to 5 minutes more.  Transfer to a bowl and cool.  You can cool it quickly by stirring the mixture in the bowl constantly for a few minutes.  When cooled, add the eggs, Parmesan cheese, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and the fresh milled pepper. 
Oil a baking dish, just large enough to hold the chard.  Sprinkle a light layer of breadcrumbs into the bottom of the dish.  Transfer the chard to the baking dish, sprinkle with the remaining breadcrumbs and bake, uncovered, about 20-25 minutes.  Serve hot.   NOTE:  I like to sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top while it's still hot.
