a real winner on a cold night. you can make it in advance and leave in the frige till your ready to cook. i've been making this for many years and my family still love it. just make sure your meat filling is very thick, otherwise it wont cut properly.
Don't know what to do with those beautiful, skinny Japanese eggplants? Try this. It's easy, healthy, and even better the next day. Slim Japanese eggplants are steamed and marinated in a spicy peanut dressing. Comes from World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. Can also be made with regular eggplants cut the same way.
Memorial Day is almost here & soon after July 4th. It’s time to share dessert options inspired by the red, white & blue of “Old Glory”. I love using tortillas creatively & am posting 2 related ideas today. I was very detailed w/the prep instructions, but this is truly much easier to do than it may appear. Even if hard to do, it would be worth the time & care taken to make “Old Glory #1” the patriotic star attraction of your holiday get-together for family or friends! (Time does not include refrigeration time)
"Kopanisti" is the baked "Htipiti" processed with a fork instead of a food processor. - This is the answer I got from my Greek friend, as I was trying to duplicate Htipiti and the recipe I found just didn't taste quite the same. So, try this if you are looking for Authentic Greek Htipiti, instructions came straight from a Greek!
When Dutch young people between the ages of 2 and 99 get up in the morning, this is often the breakfast of choice. It's very very traditional in the Netherlands and here we have Vlokken and Hagelslag in many variations of colours, textures and flavours. What is it, you might ask? well the most basic one looks like the little chocolate bits used in cake decoration LOL, but here it's served up on bread (NEVER toast) for breakfast. If you are really Dutch and/or really brave you eat it as an open sandwich, to the untrained in the art of Hagelslag this can result in more of the chocolate bits on the floor than in your mouth, so beginners might perfer to add an extra slice of bread on the top to keep everything in a little better. Use margarine or slightly softened butter on the bread to help keep everything in place too. For the "quantity" of hagel I have been conservative but for Dutch kids the rule of thumb is: get as much on as you think you can get away with! Enjoy!
These are excellent enchiladas. Yes, there really is spinach in them! They are very rich and very filling, you will be stuffed. My husband and I got them from my sister-in-law. My husband raved about them and then told me there was spinach in them and wanted me to try them. I told him he was crazy. Well I tried them and they are so good, and I don't even like spinach and he doesn't either. You have to try these!!! You will love them!
This is so easy and so impressive. The taste is fantastic. The texture is smooth and creamy. The flavor depends on the quality of chips you buy but the kids enjoy the store brand (cheap ones) the best They make great teacher gifts, if you package them up nicely.
Inspired by Healthy Pick's Blueberry-Pomegranate Applesauce. I don't know if this tastes like Healthy Pick's because I've never sampled theirs. This is a copycat recipe in the sense that I copied the ingredients and embellished with my own. Please substitute another sweetener of your choice. Ingredient amounts are estimated. I had visions of blueberry pie dancing in my head while composing this recipe...
This recipe has been making the rounds on the internet and I thought I would post it here so I don't forget about it. There are 8 different additions/variations that are guaranteed to make these blondies something special!
