Another Heart Healthy recipe. This recipe features Portobellos, but feel free to substitute another variety of wild or cultivated mushroom.
Can be made into a vegetarian dish by using vegetable broth in place of chicken broth.
Here's a recipe for basic black-eyed peas with bacon or hog jowl and spicy seasonings and herbs, along with garlic and vegetables. These peas are delicious with cornbread or corn muffins and seasoned greens.
This creamy rice dish is a nice addition to a spicy meal. In reply to a question ask, this can be made the day before up to the point before baking. Just cover snugly with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated until ready to bake.
The addition of maple syrup makes these pleasently different. This dish was always popular when I catered holiday dinners. I put a small amount of syrup here but you may certainly add more if you like. I have also cut it down as I doubt that very many folks will be having 100 at their table *wink*. Prep time is actually the mixing time after the potatoes have been baked. Also this can be made the day before and gently reheated (covered) before serving. **EDIT** After several reviewers commenting that the maple flavor is faint I have upped the maple syrup content on Jan 18 "07, please feel free to add more after tasting it if you would like to.
You'll be tempted to eat this tender, flavorful chicken right from the pot, but it's best served on a bed of Recipe#414811

The next time you make mashed potatoes make a 2 cups extra and put that 2 cups away before adding the milk and butter to the rest. You can even freeze the 2 cups that you saved. That way your all set to make this delicious side dish when ever you want to.
Mujadara is a classic Middle Eastern pilaf of rice, lentils and caramelized onions. I make this all the time because it is so nutritious and satisfying. Make a big batch and you can eat it for days. Everyone loves it.
