This is my favorite oatmeal - I'll eat it for breakfast or lunch! Very filling and super tasty with the dried cranberries, almonds and orange marmalade. Be sure to add the dried cranberries right away as they rehydrate while cooking which makes them very flavorful. If I'm not that hungry I'll reduce the oats to 1/4 cup and leave the other ingredients the same. Milk can be substituted for water if desired - when we ate oatmeal as little kids it was because we were out of milk for our cereal, so I always make my oatmeal with water.... personal preference is everything! *Note: 1 tablespoon of Smucker's sugar-free orange marmalade has 10 calories WW points = 3
Don't want to deal with pastry? Looking for a fast fix? Here you go! Can't get any easier than this. You can also get creative: add bacon crumbles, shallots, spices, buttered breadcrumb topping, vary the cheese, etc. But you gotta have good tomatoes. Although, come to think of it, very well-drained canned diced (fire-roasted?) tomatoes might work in the off-season. Never tried it. The recipe came from another website, don't remember which one.
A very easy recipe to be enjoyed any time of day. This is one of those emergency meals to make when you are low on energy or prep time. Delicious! From The One Armed Chef Cookbook. You can add any leftover vegetables that you have along with the cheese. Spinach is particularly good in this recipe. Note: in the pictures I posted I added 1 c. frozen chopped spinach and 1/2 lb. browned sausage and it still fit nicely in a deep dish pie crust, but it does have to bake longer. Enjoy!
This is a recipe that can use any cooked beans. I do not use tomatoes but tomato sauce and I use fresh corn off the cob mixed with butter and evaporated milk. You can use canned whole kernel corn, drained and do the same with it. I have refined this over the years. This version is what I use. You can add 1/2 pound of cooked ground meat if desired. I serve meatless with fresh tomatoes and fresh orange slices. I like this because it tastes like a filled tamale without the work of filling, binding and steaming
all of the filled husks. Note: I increased milk to 1/3 to 1/2 cup based on reviewer comments. You could double the batter base and topping and cook about 10 minutes longer.
Another one of my creations that is always asked to make again and again. A definite kid pleaser, and guy pleaser as well. You can add additional items of your liking like black olives, guacamole, jalapenos, etc.
If you love tomatoes like I do, then you may enjoy this recipe. It's a quick side dish/plate filler that doesn't have too many ingredients, it's healthy and tastes nice. Original recipe calls for Roma and Plum tomatoes but I use what is in season. This recipe comes from a book called "Purely Golden Door" by The Golden Door Health Retreats.
In its very simplicity lie the secrets. This sauce is incredible. It has 3 ingredients, and no chopping. The amateurgourmet calls it Marcella Hazan's CRAZY tomato sauce. This is not your thick pasty sauce, it is a light luscious wonder. Add garlic or basil or mozzarella to it as you choose but try it this way first. The butter..DON'T switch to olive oil, it makes the sauce.
COMFORT FOOD!! Have this special soup anytime of the year. Combine with a sandwich for a meal! The flavor of the tomatoes and cheese, along with the croutons is superb! To get full flavor do use the can of stewed tomatoes. Quick and Easy!!!
This is so good and so easy. I always have stuff on hand to make this recipe. It comes together so quickly for a weeknight meal. I have served this to guests before and they thought I went to a lot of trouble because it was so good! :)
Here's a great go-to recipe for you! It's surely one for me! Especially with the hurried holiday shopping and cold evenings, this will warm you and your family and you can be home in plenty of time to fix dinner. This doubles and triples nicely. Feel free to use a mixture of beef and pork. I sometimes roll this up in a tortilla and sometimes I leave out the broken chips and use WHOLE chips to scoop up the goodness.
