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!
After taking the original of this recipe from Taste of Home's Quick Cooking, Collector's Edition 2003 (23), I tweeked it a bit & came up with the following version. If a little extra flavoring is desired, I sometimes use a garden vegetable cream cheese.
The breading & baking recipe is from Ce Ce on recipezaar. She used on green tomatoes. They are to die for. I decided to use on eggplant and use my own tomato mushroom gravy or sauce. I think my eggplant is great with Ce Ce's breading recipe.
These are soooo good! Do not be afraid of the jalapeno, they do not end up at all spicy. (in fact, I often add more then one!)
You will never go back to boring mashed potatoes again! I got this recipe from allrecipes, and was shocked that it has not been posted here.
This is a wonderful Vegetable Casserole. We really enjoyed it and will be making it again. I made it just like the recipe calls for, except I used frozen brocholi and cauliflower (winter vegetables in the bag) and i steamed them in my vegetable steamer.
OH my! These are the BEST carrots in the world. My grandma makes these for every occasion. I usually end up hoarding the carrots for myself. haha. They are my FAVORITE! If your kids won't eat veggies, try this dish! I would suggest doubling the recipe, because they are so good! Can't get much easier than this!
I never liked Spinach til I had to try this recipe at my sister-n-laws and from than on I made this casserole for special dinners I either attended or made for supper at home. Its a favorite to many of my friends and family and I thought I would share with everyone here at Recipezaar. Hope you like it too!
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 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.
this is the first year i planted a garden here in pa. it was essentially herbs, but i threw in 2 tomato plants and one pepper plant, now this late in the season i am left with many green tomatoes. this recipe is courtesy of tyler florence, and worked perfectly.
