Light and delicious and easy to make. Several neighbor girls used to stop by early on their way to school to eat these pancakes. I like maple syrup, but you can cook with chocolate chips or top with fresh or frozen fruit. Since there is no sugar in the pancakes, you can put chutney on them for a spicy taste.
This is from the Rival Crock pot recipe book. Boeuf Bourguignonne, also known as Beef Burgandy, is a french peasant stew. It was my absolute favorite recipe that my mom made while I was growing up. I'm a vegetarian now because I don't like meat and I can safely say that this might be the only beef recipe I've ever liked. SO GOOD AND TENDER AND FLAVORFUL!
*To make gravy thicker. Turn crock pot to high. Combine 3 T flour with 3 T melted butter & put into stew
**To make gravy thicker for oven cooking method, make a roue of the flour & butter & add to oven dish.
I went through a major bruschetta phase and tried many many recipes until I found the perfect one. This was originally Guy Fieri's but is slightly adapted to my taste after making it about a billion times. Cookingt time is marinating time.
I'm from Seattle and everynight when all the bars are closing, party-goers flock to the multitude of hot dog stands lining the streets (affectionally called "street meat"). The most popular option is the tried and true Seattle Dog. It sounds like a wierd combination but it is oh so delicious! Some places also add sauteed cabbage if you want to give that a try.
I got this recipe from my roommate who had grown up with it. I try not to eat much meat but the sauce alone over rice or pasta is to die for. It is such a great mixture of savory, earthy, salty and a tiny bit sweet.
These cookies used to be sold at my college's coffee shop and were a big big hit among all the students (most of whom were not vegan). People always formed a long line to get them and they sold out immediately. They are especially delicious right out of the oven!
This is greatly adapted from Ina Garten's recipe. Really, one of the best ways I've ever eaten this veggie. Make sure the broccoli is COMPLETELY dry before putting it in the oven or it won't roast right. The best way it to just buy it pre washed and cut in a bag. Enjoy!
There is something about the combination of flavors in this rice salad that really really works! This makes a great side dish for any number of meals and cusines and it tastes great hot or cold (although my family always argues which is better!). Enjoy!
This pudding is one of the best I've ever had. It is extremely rich and decadent. On top of that, it's pretty low in fat (much healthier than what you'd buy at the store) and pretty simple to make. It comes from Didi Emmons who says: "The consistency is creamy and smooth, like that of Jell-O chocolate pudding I loved as a child, but the flavor is far superior."
I was cooking with a friend one day when we had a hankering for cheesecake. The only problem was that my favorite cheesecake recipe took all night to set. To fix the time problem, we came up with the genius idea of baking them in cupcake form so they would cool faster. It turned out fabulously and the cupcakes make perfect individual servings to serve at parties or after dinner.
