This is a favorite salad of mine when I want something that's quick to prepare. If I have some pre-boiled eggs in the refrigerator I can get this on the table in about 5 minutes. (Note: the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of jarred bacon pieces; however, I usually fry 3 slices of bacon, crumble them and use in place of the jarred bacon. This makes the prep time about 10 minutes longer.)
I love surf 'n' turf, so when I found this recipe I tried it right away. We all really liked it (and I'm always looking for recipes that can be grilled outside, so I don't have to use the oven during hot Florida days). This is good served with corn on the cob, a green salad and garlic bread. Cooking time does not include marinating time. Enjoy!
I've made many chocolate frostings over the years, and this one is my favorite. I always made it with an uncooked and beaten egg, but with those concerned about eating raw eggs, I've listed a subsitution using EggBeaters. My personal preference is to still use an egg, though. I like to add the lemon juice and salt because I prefer a frosting that is not "overly-sweet" tasting.
This recipe was attached to some fresh chives I purchased at Publix (our local supermarket). Haven't made it yet, but it looks to be a light and refreshing main dish to make on a summer evening -- when all the kids come over I'm going to try it (with my husband as "grill master"). I like the fact that much of it can be pre-prepped. For our family, it will be a meal-in-one. All we'll need to add is a dessert. (Note: cooking time includes the time for cooling the steak.)
This recipe comes from Better Homes and Garden. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list of dinners to make next week. My husband is a "steak and potatoes" guy, so I know he'll like it, and I'm looking forward to trying Salsa Verde.
I found this recipe on the All Recipes site and knew right away that our family would love it. We all did and now it is one of the favorites in my "keeper" file. Granted, it is high in fat content and calories but is oh-so-good for the occasional splurge -- we usually have it with grilled chicken and a steamed vegetable.
The vegetable mixture in this recipe is a variation of ratatouille, a popular Mediterranean dish. I found it in my Woman's Day cookbook. It sounded interesting and has become one of my family's favorite recipes -- easy to make and SO delicious.
