I found this wonderful recipe on greek-recipes.com but it started with dried chick peas. Not having the luxury of time, I ended up remaking the recipe with a slightly more convenient ingredients. This can be served either as a side-dish serving 4 or an entrée serving 2.
While many Acadians settled into what is now Lousiana, others settled into parts of Canada influencing the cuilinary traditions of that nation. This 100 year old recipe is a family fovorite from the kitchen of Darlene Dorey and found on the Internet. I love raisn cookies and this one truely looks a winner. The original posting did not offer cooking times or yield, but I'm estimating for this untried recipe based on baking experience. Once tested, I will modify.
Found this recipe while looking for an Iraqi chicken and potatoes dish requested in the NA/ME forum. (From chicken to cookies, yes my mind wanders.) Saw this and thought it would be a great addition to 'Zaar for all my cardamom loving friends. The original recipe is from "The World of Jewish Cooking." Posting for some future ZWT.
Another untried entree from the Australian Vegetarian Society posted for the 'Zaar World Tour. The addition of yogurt to the stew should make this a delightfull creamy entree. I have modified the recipe a bit to match how I'm more likely to prepare it. cooking time is estimated.
When I first found this recipe on the Weight Watchers website, I was amused by the idea of a Moroccan dish featuring pork as most of the natives I know from this country are Muslim. Though I will never serve this dish to them, I love the flavors of the marinade and have made some changes that make this truly delicious.
At 4:00 p.m. my friend and co-host announces that the guest list for our New Years party has jumped by 10 or 15 people. Not wanting to make another trip to the store, I begin a little pantry expedition to see if I could up with another appetizer to fill in. Found some crescent rolls but didn't want to do a Mexican or Southwestern flavored pinwheel so I came up with this instead.
Biscotti are a wonderful treat. Not a sweet as a more traditional cookie, they work well as a midafternoon snack along with a cup of tea or coffee or as a light ending to a great supper. In addition, these double baked cookies are easy to prepare and store rather well. In this recipe the delightful flavors of chocolate and cherry are paired together. Found this on the Internet and storing it (with my inteneded tweaking) for safe keeping.
A simple snack that children and adults will enjoy. Indeed depending on their age, kids can either be helpers or make this on their own. Based on a recipe found in Everyday Food. This includes my modification to adapt it to our tastes.
Another entry in my collection of oatmeal combinations. This one is a little bit odd but the results are surprsingly good. I have presented it here to match my own desired consistency, but you should adjust to your own tastes.
Mom clipped this one and makes it periodically for Thanksgiving as a cake with cream cheese frosting. I like mine with a gentle dusting of powdered sugar. The clip is so old and yellowed I can’t figure out which president was a fan of this bread.
Not sure where I found this but it was on my computer and still looks good to me. With summer coming salad entrees that require little or no cooking work especially well. Cook some barley one night for dinner and reserve some to make this the next day. Though this is good after a couple of hours, it's even better the next day as the dill flavor really infuses the dish and the tuna flavor mellows. (Please don't eat this right away, not very tasty.) For WW followers, this is Core or 3 points for Flexers. Cooking time is minimum chilling time.
I recently purchased “The New American Plate” a wonderful cookbook filled with dishes with sophisticated flavors that are also healthful – lots of lean meats, grains and vegetables. This frittata is my own take on one of my brunch favorites – with autumnal flavors that give another reason to love sleepy Sunday mornings. Though usually served hot for brunch or a light supper, it makes a great snack served at room temperature.
Though there are a few muesli recipes on this site, this one is unique in its inclusion of wheat germ. This recipe mixes up a big batch that can be stored in an airtight container for a month or so. Though the original recipe comes from fatfree.com, this one has been adapted a bit to suit my tastes.
I just love eggs and often eat breakfast for dinner. Came across this recipe on the Internet and decided to post it for the Zaar World Tour. This particular one is so loaded with good things, it's a one dish meal. Or you can serve it with a simple salad and a little garlic or peasant bread. The original recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of oil, but I'm planning to cut that in half.
