This recipe has a lighter and more complex flavor than your typical Chinese take-out. As my meat eating husband says, "This is one for the books!"
I always drain my tofu, slice it in half and wrap in a layer of paper towels and then in a layer of newspaper. I place something heavy like a book or baking pan on top and wait until the newspaper has soaked up much of the moisture. Cut as desired before use.
This Chinese fried rice has the flavor those other recipes are missing. Tastes like takeout. I want to dedicate this dish to Bergy, whose recipe "AM & B's Indonesian Mehoon" has inspired this dish. Make sure you season your rice with salt before it cooks. Add some butter to the cooking water, as well. Other seasonings should be added before you cook, as well, so it has time to get inside the rice. If you like sesame flavor, add 1 tsp. of it after you add the green onions, but do not use it as a cooking oil because it easily burns.
This Paula Deen recipe for roasting sweet potatoes is a little different because it adds a little sweet and a little spice together. The presentation of these roasted potatoes and the taste are both wonderful.
This is a traditional Jewish good eats! This was given to me bay a co-worker from Barbados. I made it for my family at Easter time around 5 years ago and now it is requested for Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving.
I have only found my favorite potato salad in delicatessens in New York City and Long Island and in some Italian and Jewish delis elsewhere. After much searching, a friend on Long Island sent me this recipe which comes as close to perfection as any I've tried. The recipe may be cut down as the quantities are for a party.
Ok people I have been experimenting with fried rice a great deal, and am pretty much going to rest with this recipe. All the recipes I have tried were just missing something so I have taken the best parts of each recipe and combined them. I am going to use jasmine rice for this recipe because in my opinion it is superior to basmati. Comments/suggestions welcome.
This is a delicious healthy side dish. Pretty enough for company, but kids enjoy the sweet taste! Fresh squash is easy to cook in the microwave, but frozen tastes just as good. For the milk, I used nonfat, my neighbor uses Mocha Mix to make it non-dairy. From my neighbor, Tiffanie, who is the best kosher cook ever!!
The cabbage gets really soft and sweet after sauteing in oil and sugar and the black pepper makes it spicy; the combination tastes amazing. This is one of my most requested side dishes. Please note this makes a lot so you can cut this in half.
Low-fat roast veges.You can roast any veges of your choice this way and you can try different herbs and spices if you wish to. Serve with gravy, drizzled with lemon juice or -as my children like -drizzled with tomato sauce/ketchup. You can also used all-purpose seasoning herb and spice mix if you wish. You can add peeled carrots, turnips, onions -basically any veges of your choice.
Since it uses applesauce as well as fresh apples it is very moist, easy and quick preparation, and great apple taste. When I am in a really big hurry, I just double the applesauce and don't bother with the fresh apples.
