  • New YUMMY Recipes!

    I just had dinner at my mom's. She keeps the IC diet sheet on the counter as she cooks. She is soooo wonderful. She roasted a chicken, steamed broccoli, and made garlic mashed potatoes sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. I decided to make sweet potato and pear casserole and blueberry cobbler for dessert. I just had to share the recipes:

    Sweet Potato and Pear Casserole:
    8 to 10 medium sweet potatoes, fresh or canned (I used 1 extra large can)
    1 29 oz can pear halves, drained
    1 c maple syrup (I use pure maple syrup)
    1/2 c butter
    1/2 tsp cinnamon

    If potatoes are canned, drain. If fresh, cook in boiling salted water until tender. Peel, slice as desired. Combine butter, syrup, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil on the stove. Arrange pears and sweet potatoes in a 13 x 9 inch greased casserole dish. Pour syrup mixture over all. Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes, basting several times with syrup in casserole.

    Blueberry Crisp:
    4 c blueberries (fresh or thawed, if frozen)
    1/3 c granulated sugar
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    4 tbsp butter
    1/3 c firmly packed brown sugar
    1/3 c sifted flour
    3/4 c quick cooking oats, uncooked
    2 tsp grated lemon zest ( I omitted that)

    Put blueberries in 1 1/2 qt baking dish. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and lemon zest. Cream butter. Gradually add brown sugar and cinnamon. Cream well. Blend in oats and flour with a fork. Spread flour mixture over blueberries. Bake at 375, 35-40 minutes. Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.

      They both sound good to me, I'll have to try the blueberry crisp this summer when they are actually in season and I can get them at market for a good price

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

          Just wanted to let you know that you do not have to wait until summer to make the blueberry crisp. I bought a bag of frozen blueberries to make the recipe and it was sooooo delicious. I served it with Breyers double churned extra creamy vanilla ice cream!!!!!! You have to try this!
