Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Requested Daily

Everyday or every other day I'm cooking up this one.  It seems to never get old to Rachel.  I hope you enjoy this classic as much as we do. 

Grilled Cheese

2 slices white bread (140 cals)
3 slices Kraft Deli Deluxe American Cheese (240 cals)
1 T butter (100cals)

Total calories - 480

Melt 1/2 the butter in a small skillet on a low to medium low heat.  Using the bread and cheese, create a sandwich.  Place the sandwich in the skillet and cook until the bottom is golden brown.  Lift the sandwich using a spatula and add the other 1/2 of the butter to the skillet. Let it melt real fast, flip your sandwich, and return to the skillet to brown the other side.  That's it, you're all done. 

Now, you need something to wash this yummy, gooey sandwich down.  Try this delicious chocolate milk.  I can't remember the last time Rachel had plain white milk.  Oh well, chocolate is better anyway!!

Creamy Chocolate Milk

8 oz. whole milk (150)
2 T heavy cream (100)
2 T Hershey's Chocolate Syrup (100)

Total calories - 350

Pour all ingredients into a glass and mix well. 

This next recipe is one I recently discovered from a CF cookbook, "Kids Crave The Darndest Things (grown-ups too)".  It's so creamy and is the perfect companion for fruit.

Marshmallow Cream Fruit Dip

7 oz. jar marshmallow cream (600 cals)
8 oz. cream cheese (810 cals)
Fresh fruit slices
serving size 3T, roughly 10 servings

Total calories - approx. 130 per serving

Melt the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Mash and heat again for 1 minute.  Add marshmallow cream.  Heat in microwave again for 1 minute.  Stir and cool.  Use a dip for fresh fruit slices: apples, peaches, pears, strawberries, etc.
