A fast easy dinner. Makes excellent leftovers. This was my "beginner vegan" recipe. I got it off the web somewhere, and we practically lived on it for the first 3 months. This goes over well at potlucks too -- just mix cooked rice in with the beans before you take it.
This is one of my favourite streetside snacks in Taiwan. It is extremely easy to make and tastes great on its own as a snack or in a lunch box. Could also be sliced and presented with cold meats as a starter. I usually make it without measuring anything, so these measures are estimates.
I love tasting different cornbread recipes, and I have to admit, I think this is the best that I've ever tasted. Usually I have to put tons of butter on it, because it's so dry and just doesn't have much taste to it, but this recipe is very moist, and you can eat it alone, it's got a great sweet taste to it. Try it...and let me know what you think. Thanks to Betty Crockers Big Red Cookbook for this great recipe.
This recipe is from Ina Garten's book "Barefoot Contessa Parties!" They are flavorful and easy, although I increase the pepper. Per Ina's suggestion in the book, I make the full amount just for me & DH, and use the leftover potatoes to make potato soup. Yum!
*Note= You will need a very large baking sheet; I divide the potatoes between a medium sheet and a cast-iron skillet, and the potatoes cook faster in the skillet - so watch your cooking time if you use a cast-iron skillet OR if you cut the potatoes pretty small
I got this receipe from Anna Olson's Sugar on Food Network Canada. I was a bit dubious about putting fresh ginger in the cake - but it gives these cakes absolutely wonderful fresh taste, like nothing else I've ever tasted. For tea-lovers, this cake is a must - it's best if you can find some matcha powder - it also gives the cake wonderful green colour. But if you can't find any matcha you can use green tea leaves - infuse them with the orange zest and strain.
Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
I started making these meatballs years ago and brought them to every event imaginable. I never brought home leftovers and have been asked for the recipe so many times, I started bringing copies with me. Depending on the crowd you are going to feed, you can make these mild or spicy.
Easy to make and they freeze well for pre-planning.
