I have a mental block for side dishes. These are dishes that I think I can handle cooking and would compliment the style of cooking my family enjoys. I don't think I have actually tried many of them but I have the best intentions!
This is something my grandma made at Christmas. I don't know where she originally got the recipe but the recipe card for it has her handwriting on it. I call them German Carrots because grandma's grandparents came over from Germany. My family mostly eats these at Christmas and we usually fight over who gets the little bit that's leftover. It's a really good barbecued carrot recipe.
I believe I got this off of the Internet, but don't know what website. This is a yummy side dish that could easily be made into a main entree by adding an extra layer of ground beef (browned) or left over chicken. It takes a little effort, but is worth it. I made this last year when I was trying to use up a 5 lb. bag of egg noodles. Do you have any idea how long a 5 lb. bag can last you? So glad I stumbled across this recipe! Hope you enjoy!
This is mom's recipe for a quick all-in-one lunch idea: it is quickly whipped up, lasts several days in the fridge, is hearty/filling, nutritious, and versatile. This recipe can have many variations depending on what you prefer. The main idea is: one pasta noodle, the canned 3 bean salad, some sort of vinaigrette (or and combination of several), and any extra veggies you want in your salad.
This is a dish my family and friends ask me to bring to potluck/cook-outs! NEVER any left to bring home! (my sister brings a bowl to take what MIGHT be left) Taste great hot out of the oven or "room temperature"
You have to try this recipe! This is by far the best salad I have ever had. Even though some of the ingredients may sound like they dont belong together, they sure do taste great together. The 2 hours cooking time is letting the salaad set up in the fridge.
This was my grandmother's recipe, passed down from her mother. The cooked dressing is so fantastic that it is hard to save some for the apple salad once you taste it. It is similar to a lightly sweetened lemon curd. Scrumptious! Grapes or raisins can be added also.
