Recipe adapted from fatfreevegan.com and placed here for safe keeping, as we are going vegan for a month in June:) This recipe got great reviews on her website; hers is a single serving salad with 7 cups of greens for a specific diet, however I have adapted it to make is more mainstream for those of us not on such a diet. It can be made spicy if you'd like (although I will choose not to).
I was on the search for a crock pot method for acorn squash and wasn't happy with what I found. . .so I took a little from each recipe and created my own. The results were outstanding. If you have any leftovers, simply scoop out the pulp, apples, craisins and mix with juices in crock pot, mash slightly and freeze for a side dish at a later date! This recipe is quite forgiving, so don't worry about measuring everything out exactly. In our house, we eat this as a main course with a small salad on the side.
I had this at Scape, a great restaurant in St. Louis and I have been making it ever since. It is such a great combo of fruit flavors. I served this at 2 parties and it was a HIT at both! The amounts of water and fruit are just estimates and feel free to use your own judgment based on the size of your container.
Recipe from a ward clerk I worked with about 15 years ago. . .I have a new bottle of Applejack and I am looking for ways to use it! Make sure you use a lighter beer, otherwise the bolder beer flavors will compete with the brandy and it just doesn't work ( I tried it with an unfiltered wheat and it left much to be desired LOL).
Recipe as displayed on the wall at Cabo Wabo Cantina, Sammy Hagar's restaurant/bar in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. VERY potent! Can be served straight up as a martini, on the rocks, or blended as a frozen margarita. FYI: Damiana Liqueur is a light herbal-based liqueur from Mexico. It's made with the damiana herb that grows in Baha California, Mexico. The bottle is uniquely shaped and is modeled after an Incan Goddess.
As Eddie Money would say, "I think I'm in love. . .love, love, love, love." WOW is this a good one. If you are going to serve it over ice, the ingredients are right on the money. If you are drinking it straight, you may want to decrease the lemonade to 2 oz and try it before adding the last 1 oz. I used a Peach flavored unfiltered wheat beer and I thought this was out of this world yummo. Recipe from Fond restaurant in Edwardsville, IL.
A contest winning, healthy and easy recipe from Taste of Home. And it is SO good. No ice cream maker necessary! Recipe posted by Jill Swavely, Green Lane, Pennsylvania. NOTE: I made this the other day and used 1/4 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup sugar PLUS I misread the directions and just threw all of the ingredients in to the blender and I have to say it worked great without the heating of the "syrup".
A Scandinavian Vegetarian/Vegan salad from Eating Well Magazine. I have fond memories of simple salads such as these during my travels to Sweden. They recommend you use thin, tender asparagus for this recipe. NOTE: I found the raw asparagus kind of strange for me, so next time I am going to cook it slightly before putting it in the salad.
A refreshing, bubbly tea. . .perfect to sip poolside. Recipe from Prevention magazine June 2010. Recipe submitted by Paul Folkestad, chef at Le Cordon Bleu College in Portland, OR. NOTE: Feel free to try it without the lime juice as well - I like it better with just tea and ginger ale!
This mocktail is rich in vitamins A & C and will whisk you away to the tropics! Recipe from Prevention Magazine June 2010 and submitted by Colleen Mullaney, author of The Stylish Girl's Guide to Fabulous Cocktails.
Super easy and super tasty! Revised from a recipe from the Old Orchard Juice website. Note that I used about half the oil and I used canola instead of olive so that the grapefruit flavors could shine through, but that was just personal preference.
A refreshing non-alcoholic drink perfect for parties or poolside. Recipe adapted from The Everything Cocktail Parties & Drinks Book by Cheryl Charming. Original recipe called for 1/2 T sugar and 1 oz water, but I don't think it's necessary in this drink (just added calories).
