This is something I've been making for years but never thought to post. Tuna salad complete with shredded carrots, red onion, crunchy celery, sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese - enough to satisfy the even the healthiest of appetites. It is great for salads and sandwiches - I like it especially for dinner topped on a large bed of salad greens to make a filling - high protein meal.
My first recipe posting! :) This is my favorite soup to make when the weather starts to get chilly. It's from a little restaurant in the small town where I grew up. My mom obtained the recipe, and I have fond memories of helping her make this soup. It's great served with shredded cheese, and freezes really well too. Prep time, cook time and servings are all approximate. Enjoy!
There are so many recipes for Baked Stuffed Peppers - each a little different, each bringing something a little different to the dinner table. This is the recipe I learned from my mother. A meal in itself I generally serve 1 stuffed pepper "half" per person along with freshly baked French bread and a tossed salad, for those with healthier appetites you can of course serve 2 "halves" per person. I like to use red and or yellow peppers over the green - I find the red/yellow peppers to be a bit sweeter. These can also be made ahead and frozen for OAMC - when ready to use simply thaw overnight in the fridge and bake as directed.
This is a fabulous stirfry - a little sweet, a little (or a lot!) hot, and loaded with veggies and chicken! Yum! This is my adaptation of a recipe from the Best of Bridge cookbook series - A GREAT set of cookbooks!
Because of the contrast between the tart cranberries and sugary coating, the flavor of this snack pops in your mouth. The berries are steeped in hot sugar syrup to tame their tangy bite. When entertaining, serve these in place of nuts. For gift-giving, package in parchment-lined tins. Present with a small bottle of the reserved cranberry cooking syrup for the recipient to use as a cocktail mixer. If you can't find superfine sugar, make your own by processing granulated sugar in a food processor for a minute
Classic chocolate sauce. Very rich, and wonderful, as long as you use good quality chocolate. You can modify it by adding a tablespoon of Gran Marnier, Baileys, or any other flavoring to jazz it up a bit.
These are a lot more interesting than plain roasted or jacket potatoes. They're perfect to serve with a roast and easy to do. As the potatoes cook the slices fan out so, as well as tasting great, they look pretty too!
This recipe originally won first prize ($1 Million) in a national cook-off of some sort (I think Pillsbury) several years ago. I can see why - it is a wonderful combination of flavours. The recipe is quite easy to make and is very economical. I have also substituted the chicken thighs for boneless, skinless breasts and it works just fine. The thighs are definitely better though as they are more moist. Do try this - you'll love it.
This is a very different Tapa - it is almost like a potato salad - You'll like the flavor and it is great to serve along with other tapas. Serve 1/2 cup in small individual bowls . It is fun to have a tapa night when you are entertaining.There are lots of Tapas recipes here on Recipezaar. This recipe originated in Kraft's What's Cooking magazine
