I like to call this "The Worlds Greatest Sandwich". Cooked overnight in a crock pot, the meat is tender, juicy, and messy..the way a BBQ sandwich should be. Top it with your favorite cole slaw, and you have one tasty meal.
Don't you just love that kettle cooked popcorn available at county fairs? It's sweet; it's salty; it's deliciously crunchy. It's usually pretty expensive too! This is a great, SUPER EASY recipe to make it yourself - just like you enjoy at the fair - with only 3 ingredients! I ran across a similar recipe years ago online and tweaked it a bit... in other words, perfected it. I hope you enjoy!
These are addictive little snacks. Crunchy and flavorful BUT actually good for you too! The spicier you get these the better imho! Plus, spicy foods are supposed to increase your metabolism! A reviewer said these made their mouth dry- Guess they might also increase my water intake! :) Make sure to get them good and dry before baking and they will cook more quickly.
These made be made on the grill or in the oven, great to take camping as you can prepare the foil packages ahead of time then just stick on the grill, they are great on top of burgers, steaks and even fish -- one onion for each packet but of coarse you may make as many packets as desired! --- see bottom of recipe for oven cooking :)
The combination of fresh asparagus and crunchy, salty cashews is a winner. As a side vegetable it goes well with simple grilled fish, pork, and poultry. Or, I've just sauteed some cubed, boneless chicken breasts to the skillet before adding the asparagus. It's delicious either way.
This classic is usually made with blueberries but sweet plums make a delicious alternative. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt. Although cook time says 50 minutes it could be anywhere between 40-50 minutes, so check after 40 minutes. For the batter, be sure to have eggs and butter at room temperature.
This is shojin ryori or vegetarian temple cooking, a Buddhist vegetarian style of cooking in Japan. There are many versions of blunt knife pounded cucumber salads but this one is very nice. Often cucumber is pounded with a blunt side of a chef's knife or small stick lightly to break down the cucumber flesh in the middle so that cucumbers can be eaten in bigger chunks and flavor able to penetrate better. Japanese, English, or hot house cucumbers work best here, but if using thick skinned American style cucumber, cut in lengthwise in half and remove seeds first before proceeding.
These are the most amazing cookies. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and freeze so well. You can't even tell they were frozen! The best part - they are drop cookies, no shaping necessary. If you love nuts, use crunchy peanut butter and add the nuts, if not, use creamy PB and 2 cups of peanut butter chips. Cook time is for one batch. Dough keeps well in fridge so you can bake a batch every day and have fresh cookies!
Easy, tasty weeknight recipe. Adaptable to different types of meat; add veges or delete to suit your taste, or what you have on hand. I developed this "cook-and-drain" technique to avoid chow mein that was swimming in liquid. It also makes added thickeners unnecessary. I show varying amounts of noodles and cabbage - I enjoy a chow mein with lots of veges, but others in my family like the noodles. This recipe works well either way.
This dish has become popular in thailand few years ago, it has a strong peppery flavors which is quite appealing to the thai taste buds...I just had it for lunch so i thought of sharing it with zaar....enjoy!!
