This is a very simple salad that we enjoy with grilled meats especially in the summer. But whenever I make anytime of meat either in the oven or pan fried, I'm always requested to make this salad. It is refreshing and wonderful. Enjoy
Adapted from a recipe I found in a store magazine. I had these today and they were yummy, not to mention healthy. Quinoa contains 5g of protein, 3g of fiber and only 1g of sugar per 1/4 cup and its also very low fat. Try it!
These are amazing! I accidentally discovered this with my Sister-n-law on a holiday last year. they were remodeling their house...what do you make when the stores are closed and the kitchen is empty? They always make jalapeño poppers and Italian food, so they had these following ingredients on hand and what a great food we discovered! You can also make up ahead of time, just freeze and wait to do the last step when you are ready to eat. Please enjoy!
Use your favourite herbs and spices to top these tasty, crunchy potatoes. Our family love a pinch of cayenne pepper, cumin and caraway seeds. I also like to dab the potatoes with a bit of butter before cooking.
This sounds like such a simple recipe that many people pass it up ...DON'T! Cooking new potatoes this way makes them taste wonderful, especially with butter. You must have a cast iron pan to do this. The stovetop browning makes the skins crunchy and out of this world.
My neighbor served this at a baby shower and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. This was addictive and had a unique, fresh taste. Don't leave out the bacon at the end..it is an essential ingredient, as is the chopped cilantro and lime juice.
I wanted some "real" baked beans for dinner, but didn't want the leftovers from making my usual recipe since I was only cooking for 2. I played around and came up with this tasty scaled down version perfect us. This is even easy enough for busy weeknights.
I LOVE Brussels sprouts this way. This recipe makes a lot (cuz it's my very own "special occassion" recipe), but they'll get eaten!!
Not overly-sauced, or fat-laden, either!
I don't put salt in this, but you can add it to taste.
My friend Jane gave me this recipe. It's a sure-fire hit at potlucks and picnics. REALLY easy to make, and keeps well. If I know it (or leftovers) will have to wait in the fridge for more than a day, I skip the mushrooms.
This baked asparagus side dish is so easy to make, yet it provides a variation to the usual vegetables. Try different varieties of olive oil, such as roasted garlic, or basil olive oil. I have also added garlic (fresh, minced in jar or garlic powder). I often use this method to cook broccoli florets with delicious results.
