Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
This is a great quick recipe that's meatless and light. You can lighten it even more by using lower fat ingredients. Great for kids to make! This is a microwave recipe, but can be made in the oven. Also, ricotta cheese is easily substituted for the cottage cheese, if you prefer!
This dish is loaded with flavor and makes a lovely, colorful presentation. You'll want to serve with plenty of rice to absorb the wonderful sauce. (Noted added 11/05/07: I like to credit original recipe sources when known, but wasn't sure about this one when I submitted the recipe. Fortunately, a reviewer pointed out that the recipe came from Cooking Light, so I searched their site--indeed, it was originally published in their September 2002 issue. Thanks to the reviewer for bringing this to my attention, and thanks to Cooking Light for developing the recipe! :) )
This is from a wonderful book, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, by Hensperger and Kaufmann. It makes a wonderful, creamy oatmeal with no watching or muss or fuss. Definitely use steel-cut oats, which have a wonderful texture, so superior to the regular stuff. I usually use dried cranberries, raisins or currants, instead of the dates.
Say goodbye to Aunt Jemima! Once you taste these homemade pancakes, I think you'll agree they're much better than the boxed kind! Add a bit of vanilla or fruit (frozen blueberries work well) to make them extra special. If you want, mix up the dry ingredients in advance and give it away as a gift (with instructions on how to finish making the pancakes) or just store it for even quicker pancakes on Sunday mornings.
Great side dish for your Mexican fiesta. Try with Recipe #17130! It is as good as you'll find in any Mexican restaurant. Update: 1 teaspoon cumin was added to original recipe. I took some of my reviewers suggestion and added 1 teaspoon of cumin to the recipe. They were right. Cumin definitely adds to the taste.
These are wonderful and are almost too healthy to be true. Lots of calcium, protein, fiber, etc. I usually eat them without any topping and just keep popping them in my mouth! Yum. But a good jam will do them nicely as well.
A lovely combination of spices and the chicken is beautifully tender and moist. This was a recipe from a supermaket promotion, which I have slightly adapted to my own tastes. Very rich, so we do not have it too often! Served over rice and with a fresh salad to counteract the richness. A few have commented that they were not so fond of the cinnamon in this dish, and so another spice combination that is good is to leave out the cinnamon and ginger and replace with 1 teaspoon each of nutmeg and cumin.
This is a simple throw-together dish I came up with that is great for a Sunday after-church meal. Note: You can fry your own bacon for this recipe. I like the taste of bacon but cannot handle the lingering smell it leaves in the house when you fry it, so I just buy the jarred bacon for the few times a year I use it.
Why compromise the banana flavor? My banana bread is moist and delicious with loads of banana flavor! Ultimate comfort food, and it's WONDERFUL TOASTED!! (Make sure to use bananas with a lot of black on them for the best flavor! The blacker the bananas, the stronger the banana flavor of the bread.)
Absolutely delicious meatloaf and sauce! Those who claim they don't believe there can be such a thing as a great meatloaf will love this. Based on a meatloaf given to me by a dear friend, Virginia Strehl, Memphis, and Leesburg, Fla. Nita Holleman, 2000
