My dad is from Spain and growing up we had the "real" thing for every holiday. I have been able to serve this to my extended family with no one the wiser and it is A LOT QUICKER AND EASIER than the traditional one and you don't need the Paella pan.
How do you get your family to eat Bran? Make these muffins! They are nice and moist with a great flavor. They freeze really well, just pop 2 in the microwave for 35 seconds. Nice and filling for those mornings when you just dont have time to sit down to breakfast. If you do WW - these are only 1 point each!!
This pasta dish has enough goodies in it to make an entire meal. Despite having soy sauce as an ingredient, it does not taste Asian. I like to use a pasta such as medium shells that will hold onto the vegetables, not a spaghetti-type. Preparation time does not include 30 minutes for soaking sun-dried tomatoes.
I have been making this for over 10 years and is the most requested recipe I have! This is everyone's favorite chicken dish I make! It's a nice change from "ordinary" chicken! Goes well with steamed broccoli. (Note: This is a "Diane" recipe, therefore has a mustard taste to it!!)
A low fat, healthy good for you stove top dinner that is quick and easy to prepare. For those on Weight Watcher points program, this is 6 points per serving. I believe this recipe is from our local newspaper.
Nice, fresh-tasting dish that comes together in a snap. Make it even quicker by preparing the chile lime butter ahead of time. It can be made 1 day ahead, covered and chilled. Just make sure to bring to room temperature before using. I like this served atop jasmine rice. -adapted from Gourmet
I just love this sauce, and it is so easy to put together, too. Though I haven't tried it with chicken yet, I think it would be great with 4 chicken breast fillets substituted for the pork chops--simply increase the simmering time (in step number 6).
This frittata is different from most because the egg whites are stiffly beaten before adding the egg yolks, creating a beautiful light and puffy golden edge/crust. Use the vegetables and cheese of your choice. It's based on a recipe in Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine. She suggested leeks, grape tomatoes and crumbled goat cheese, but we used onion, garden tomatoes and light cheddar, and it was fabulous.
I created this recipe for the contest using some leftover chicken and rice. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. It is a fun, colorful and delicious meal that is easy to prepare but tastes like it took a long time! (and it's not super spicy either!)
