This month we chose two recipes that have two things in common–they’re simple and delicious…..so you can eat good food without spending much time in the kitchen! We hope you enjoy. (And, as always, please consider sending us YOUR favorite recipes to betterfaster@imaginept.com).

Good Eats and Treats: Marsha’s Tomato Pie and 125 Year Old Walnut Cake

Posted on June 16, 2015 by

Screen Shot 2015-06-10 at 10.45.16 PM

 

Our recipes this month were generously provided by Marsha, a long-time friend of Imagine. Marsha is a brilliant Pediatric Physical Therapist who has treated both children and siblings of some of Imagine’s Physical Therapists. When she needed some rehabilitation, we were certainly honored she chose us! During her time in our Daniel Island office, Marsha was AWESOME about bringing in goodies, so we know she can cook. We therefore asked her to submit her favorite recipes for our newsletter, and she kindly obliged. Please enjoy two of her favorites– the seasonally appropriate “Marsha’s Tomato Pie” and her never-out-of-season (never out of century?) 125 Year Old Walnut Pound Cake (her spin on an ooooold pound cake recipe)! We’d love your feedback on the recipes….or a recipe from YOU for next months newsletter! Shoot us an email at betterfaster@imaginept.com. Enjoy!
 

Marsha’s Tomato Pie

 

Ingredients:

1 package of Ritz crackers, crushed

1 stick of melted butter

4-6 ripe tomatoes (depending on size), sliced

1 Vidalia onion, sliced thinly

6 oz freshly grated (not pre-grated!) extra sharp cheddar cheese (such as Cabot)

1/2 block feta, crumbled

1 to 2 tbsp worcestershire sauce

Lite mayo

Fresh basil and thyme (lots)

 

Directions: Place sliced tomatoes on paper towels to remove excess moisture (approximately 30 minutes). Mix together melted butter and crushed crackers. Place 1/2 to 2/3 of cracker mix in bottom of deep dish pie plate; tap down. Place in the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove when crackers are brown-don’t burn! Mix together extra sharp cheddar cheese, feta cheese, worcestershire and enough lite mayo to make it pasty (real chefs often don’t use measurements…so many of us will struggle with this 😉 ). Add in thyme and basil “to taste” (it will take more than you think!). Layer 2/3 of tomatoes and Vidalia onion on browned crust; top with cheese mix. Top with the rest of the onions and then tomatoes. Top with cracker mix to cover. Cook at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

 

125 Year Old Walnut Pound Cake

Yum. Just Yum.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 pound butter

1/2 cup shortening

5 eggs

3 cups flour

3 cups sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon rum flavoring

1 cup heavy cream

2 cups chopped walnuts

 

Directions: Cream butter and shortening with sugar. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each. Add flavoring. Mix quarter cup of flour with nuts. Add remaining flour mixed with baking powder alternating with cream (start and end with flour). Fold in nuts. Bake in a grease and powdered tube pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour 40 minutes.

Good Eats and Treats: Best. Brownies. EVER.

Posted on March 12, 2015 by

Brownies

 

We had a fantastic patient present our Park West Clinic with what we now call the “Best Brownies Ever”. Ms. Frances has 2 secret ingredients that she adds to her Spicy Brownies, and they aren’t what you would expect. Nope, not caramel, dark chocolate or Oreos. The ingredients? Crushed Red Pepper and Instant Espresso coffee. Give this recipe a shot and let us know what you think. If you think you have an equally delicious brownie recipe, we would loooooove for you to prove it to us. All 5 clinics are open to test tasting any time!

 

Ms. Frances’ Spicy Brownies

1Box of Ghirardelli Brownie Mix and suggested ingredients per back label
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon instant espresso coffee

Add crushed red pepper to brownie mixture
Add the instant espresso coffee to the water before mixing with brownie mix.
Follow the rest of the instructions on the box

The red pepper gives a mild warmth after taste while the espresso brings out the chocolate flavor even more than usual. Both ingredients give it a little extra kick!

Make brownies as directed on box for 8- or 9-inch square pan. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove brownies from pan by lifting foil; remove foil. For 16 brownies, cut into 4 rows by 4 rows.

  2. Heat frosting in microwavable bowl uncovered on High 30 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds, until frosting can be stirred smooth and fluid. If frosting becomes too firm while decorating, microwave 5 seconds; stir.

Honey & Lime Chicken Enchiladas

Honey Lime and Chicken Pix

A fantastic sweet and tangy twist on your typical enchilada recipe. Not only tasty but can be made partly in advance for anyone on the go. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 5 Tbsp honey OR 4 Tbsp agave
  • 5 Tbsp lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (or 3-4 cloves garlic, minced)
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 8 flour tortillas (about 8″ each)
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 12 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 15 oz green enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

  2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. Place 1/2 cup enchilada sauce in a 9×13 pan.
  4. Add about 1/4 cup chicken to each tortilla. To make sure I don’t short the last enchilada, I put all 8 tortillas down on a clean counter and divide the meat all at once, adjusting if necessary, so all are even.
  5. Sprinkle chicken with cheese (save some for the top), roll each tortilla tightly, and place in prepared pan.
  6. Add remaining enchilada sauce, milk, sour cream and cumin to remaining marinade. Combine and pour over enchiladas.
  7. If you want your cheese browned and crispy, sprinkle remaining cheese before placing in oven. If you want your cheese melted {but not browned} sprinkle with remaining cheese during the last 5 minutes of bake time.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

And as always, thanks so much to all of our patients who bring us goodies. We do our best to take care of you, and truly appreciate your kindness in taking care or us—especially when it involves our stomachs!
