A tasty chicken dish - with a flavoursome blend of herbs, spices, vegetables and honey - which is nonetheless still reasonably low both in calories and in fat. Adapted from Paige Morehouse's recipe which appears in Prevention Healthy Cooking's 'Eat Up, Slim Down: Tried-and-true recipes and tips from real weight-loss winners' by Jane Kirby and David Joachim. Because the recipe contains several vegetables, it really is a stand-alone dish. When I've made it, I've added a bit more garlic (personal preference). The original recipe had 2 cloves of garlic; and I've included more like 8 ounces of mushrooms (again, personal preference). The original recipe had 3 ounces of mushrooms. I've always used kalamata olives when making this dish.
A delicious rich tasting soft cookie that is quick and easy to make. If you love brownies or peanut butter give these a try. The original recipe (Pillsbury Bake Off - 41 Contest submitted by Deb McGowan) calls for 1-cup peanut butter and 1 cup powder sugar. I had lots left over so I have decreased it to 3/4 cup each on this recipe. The 1st batch I didn't press the peanut butter ball down enough but still tasted great. Make sure you let them cool as the peanut butter holds the heat and you may burn your mouth.
I found this recipe on a blog about a year ago. I don't have the link anymore though. This is so flavorful. It works really well with any salad - baby spinach is great. This good paired with pork and would make an excellent marinade.
This recipe was given to me by the mother of one of my students. She made it quite often the summer I worked with her son in their home. The smell was out of this world when she was cooking it and she always sent me home with a serving. Now, many years later, I make it for my own family. Everyone loves it. It's nice any time of year as long as you can find good plum tomatoes. I make it a lot in the summer with my own homegrown tomatoes. It's really one of my favorite things that I make. I (like many people) don't really measure when I cook so measurements for things like cream and basil are not exact in this recipe.
This recipe comes from my Dad's recipe file. It's a real treat to visit and have Dad make his trademarked, perfectly grilled and seasoned porterhouse steaks! The marinade is so simple that I'm able to do it in 5 minutes before heading off to work in the morning. Enjoy!
This dressing is so tasty that I could eat it with a spoon, but amazingly it is suitable for serving to the two in my family who are diabetics. You would never guess that it has no sugar added. I adapted this recipe from one I believe I originally found in Homemakers magazine. Serving size is calculated as 2 Tablespoons per serving, but that will depend on personal preference.
This dish is loaded with flavor and makes a lovely, colorful presentation. You'll want to serve with plenty of rice to absorb the wonderful sauce. (Noted added 11/05/07: I like to credit original recipe sources when known, but wasn't sure about this one when I submitted the recipe. Fortunately, a reviewer pointed out that the recipe came from Cooking Light, so I searched their site--indeed, it was originally published in their September 2002 issue. Thanks to the reviewer for bringing this to my attention, and thanks to Cooking Light for developing the recipe! :) )
From Steven Raichlen (The Barbecue Bible). Although I think the bone and skin add much to the flavor of grilled chicken, I used boneless, skinless breasts as that is what I had on hand and ordinarily use. I sliced them, and served wrapped in warm, homemade pita bread. Delicious! If you use boneless, skinless breasts, the cooking time will be less than stated. Prep time includes time to marinate.
Squash with a bit of a Tex-Mex twist. I served this as something different to side with tacos and just used what I had on hand: a zucchini and a yellow summer squash, hot and spicy chipotle salsa, and a colby-monterey jack blend. This was adapted from a reader-submitted (Desiree Zamorano) recipe in Bon Appetit.
A wonderful dish--simple, delicious comfort food. I seared the lamb chops in a hot skillet coated with a little olive oil before adding them to the potatoes in the oven (reducing roasting time accordingly) and scattered chopped flat-leaf parsley along with the olives, tomatoes and feta to add some color. Recipe adapted from Bon Appétit.
Found this recipe in a 'Quick Cooking' and made a few adaptions to suit my tastes and make it a little less time consuming. It reminds me of a dish at a local Mexican restaurant (enchilada de monterray). Very yummy!
