I found this on a hunt for non-alcoholic cocktails and mocktails to serve to my friends that don't drink at parties. I haven't tried it yet but I am adding it to the drinks menu for my New Year's party next week. It sounds like it would be fun for kids too.
Since starting on my healthy eating journey, I have discovered that I really like kale. I would never have even entertained trying it before but it has become a regular on my plate. However, I am always looking for new ways of eating it rather than steaming it. I found this recipe in the February 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine and it looks like a good alternative to my usual preparation.
A potato salad Serbian style. It is an oil and vinegar based salad rather than the creamy style more common in North America. Cooking time doesn't include the chilling time because it is up to you how long you want to chill it.
This is another discovery in my quest to find non-alcoholic cocktails and mocktails to serve my guests at New Year. It packs a rather sweet punch. It looks a bit like red wine, so I am going to serve it in red wine glasses.
I first had plantains when I moved to the UK and to an area that has a large Caribbean and Nigerian population. They are yummy and sort of like a banana but not exactly as they need to be cooked. This is a really easy way of trying out plantains without being afraid of what to do with them. You don't really need the cooking spray but it wouldn't let me post a recipe with just one ingredient.
I am always on the hunt for healthy recipes and new ways to use vegetables that I already like. I never really think of not cooking zucchini but this sounds good. It is the recipe of British TV chef Merrilees Parker and was first published in the August 2005 issue of BBC Good Food Magazine.
I'm always on the look out for new things to do with beans. This is something that looks good to me for sure. I think it would be nice served with a white fish or maybe pork. I found this recipe in the March 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe says that it can be frozen.
I am really coming to enjoy lentils which is something I never would have anticipated in the past but they really are versatile. I stole this off a a vegan website and have been meaning to try it. I am sticking it here so I don't forget I have it. They didn't list serving amounts so I am guessing a tad.
This recipe sounds fresh and healthy and an nice alternative to tomato sauce covered pasta. This recipe was first published in the July 2006 issue of BBC Good Food Magazine. You could toss some thick slices of ham into it if you wanted meat in the meal.
I can never have enough things to do with lentils. I found this in the February 2008 copy of BBC Good Food magazine and decided to add it for future use. The recipe says that his can be frozen if you leave off the parsnip crisps.
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by June (Schaeffer) Houtz. Cooking time doesn't include 4 hour chilling.
Born out of total laziness and the need for a quick sweet hit. You can use any type of cracker that takes your fancy but I like to keep it a fairly plain tasting one. For example, when I first made this I used a small matzo cracker.
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Florence Miller who is my Nana's sister and always called 'Aunt Puss' by myself. I look the most like her than of any of the other Muir family members I have met.
This is a good way to stretch the budget and make sure the you are making the most out of your grocery shopping. I found this on the Veggie Venture blog which is a great blog for those of us wanting to get more veggies into our diet. I wanted to put it down here so I don't lose it.
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This is one that was actually submitted to the cookbook by my Nana - Dorothy Parker. She has added the following note to the recipe: "Especially tasty with pork chops or roast. Chop pickles and mix with cream cheese for dark bread sandwiches".
