A really special friend shared this recipe with me several years ago. It was his trick for dressing up those inexpensive noodles for his kids, and I think it is very good. This is great on its own as a quick meal, but can be an easy side for many dishes. We prefer the chicken or beef flavored noodles for this.
By far the best and healthiest Thai Peanut I've EVER tasted. It's highly requested by family and friends!!! This quick recipe is just for two people, but it doubles and triples extremely well when we have company over. Give it a try!!
This is a recipe I have been making for about 24 years. I can't remember the lady's name who published the book I got it from, but she was a real stickler about what you feed your kids. I started making this when my boys were preschool age. I would always make sure a had a big batch when they had a sitter, so she didn't fill them up with junk, and they would be on a sugar high when I got home at night. I am still making this today and I enjoy it as a healthy meal or snack anytime. I must say I usually triple this when I make it, as there was 5 of us.It keeps well in frig for a few days, and the boys would eat it for snacks a lot. It made me feel better that they were eating healthy. I used American cheese and I must say on my bowl I would add salt. I love this dish.
This is a quick, 5 ingredient recipe. It comes from Light and Tasty. You should definitely be using the Italian-style diced tomatoes that come already seasoned with herbs for flavor. If you use plain diced tomatoes, just add some herbs to your liking when putting this recipe together.
Easy and so good, if you love garlic then you love this pasta dish! adjust the garlic to taste, I use 4 tablespoons for this recipe, you might want to reduce that a bit. Increase the dried red pepper flakes for more heat!
My fave Chinese restaurant has the BEST lo mein I ever put across my lips. It's simple, cheap, and very filling if you need that kinda dish. This can be made for literally pennies and everyone will appreciate this because it can be dressed up or dressed down. Cook and prep times approximate.
This tastes like something I once had at Olive Garden, except I think they made it with fresh tomatoes. That limits it to a seasonal dish, since winter tomatoes, frankly, stink. Since this recipe uses canned tomatoes, you can feel gourmet at anytime. It goes together pretty quickly, especially after the first time you prepare it.
This is a great, healthy way to get your veggies and MUCH lower in fat than a traditional pesto. This is a great pantry-meal because it isn't dependent on the seasons and can be made in a snap at any time of the year. The sauce itself requires no cooking, and the food processor even does all the chopping for you.
This sauce is vegetarian as is, but could easily be made vegan by omitting the cheese.
Silken tofu is shelf-stable and can be found at asian groceries, specialty/health stores, and many regular grocery stores these days. It imparts no taste to the sauce, just a creamy decadent texture like the finest whole-milk ricotta. It can be your little secret!
A great side dish or a meal on its own. This is a Polish/Hungarian dish. Can use bacon but I cut back on that to make it meatless. Also can garnish with poppy seeds. Adding peas for color and nutrition. Bacon is a yummy addition for those that eat meat. Just brown drain most of the fat then add butter and oil and brown onions. Be sure to give the onions a nice brown color using a med high heat.
