Like most families with teens we go through snacks like a plague of locusts. So I'm always looking for things that are healthier and more affordable than chips. I like to offer a nice balance between sweet things and non-sweet things — peanut butter bars one time, hummus the next, and so on.
In Romania it's called Homemade Chocolate. It's easy and sometimes I change the quantities, especially if I want less sugar. I like it with less margarine but the recipe calls for 250 gr.My DD likes to decorate it with pistachios.
There's nothing like a steaming pot of boiled ham and cabbage on a cold evening. The hearty, homey flavor makes for such a perfect comfort food that your family will never notice that all those veggies are good for them. The nutritional information is going to be off because the veggie amounts are sized for 6-8 servings, but the ham will leave you with plenty of leftovers to use in the many wonderful dishes that call for ham. Use any, all, or none of the optional veggies according to availability and personal taste.
I created this recipe after reviewing many olive bread recipes. The olives, rosemary and basil release a wonderful aroma while the bread is baking and the aroma and flavor carries through to the finished product. The green olives and olive brine also really bring the olive taste through in the finished bread. This bread is great for use with dips.
I have a lot of Lemon Balm growing up in my herb garden so when I ran across this a Lemon Balm Bread recipe in a Gooseberry Patch Christmas book I decided to try it. I renamed it Sweet Melissa Lemon Balm Bread. Melissa is the Latin name for Lemon Balm. This bread is VERY moist.
Guests will think you spent hours preparing these appetizers. They are very pleasing to the eye and the taste of Brie, caramelized onions and caraway is delicious. Prep time is approximate and includes the 15 minute chill time.
Peanuts 101! This is a basic recipe for roasting peanuts gleaned from Chef2Chef. You may use as many peanuts as you want, the method is the same, just keep it one layer deep. The computer won't let me list one ingredient, so I have added salt. You may use or not.
