I discovered this one a few weeks ago. I started out trying to make chicken and rice and ended up with this.
It is very tender and very good. An excellent make-ahead dish for summer. All the work is done before the crock pot is even warm.
This is excellent for fajitas, pasta salads, chicken salad, soup, added to beans and rice, just laying on bread for chicken sandwiches, or just eating cold.
From the www.weightwatchers.com website: "Tart Granny Smith apples and dried cranberries are baked under a crisp coating of oats, cinnamon and brown sugar. The result is not overly sweet so it's perfectly suited for breakfast or a light dessert."
I used to be fussy about my tuna salad dressings, since most of the time they tasted too "tinned" or "fishy." This all-purpose dressing from "Cook's Illustrated" is fabulous on all three types of sandwich fillings. Listed are the variations suggested for each filling. Recipe makes 1/4 cup (enough for one 6 ounce can tuna) but can be doubled or tripled.
This is a great way to use fresh blackberries when they are in season. So very good! Serve over gourmet mixed greens with slices of avocado, mangos, fresh strawberries, pink grapefruit, blackberries & purple onions. From 2004 Southern Living Annual Recipes.
This is so flavorful with the fresh rosemary and lemon. I make this when my garden is growing so I have the fresh rosemary. You can substitute dried rosemary for the fresh, just use 3/4 tsp. I usually serve this with a rice pilaf and veggies.
An easy everyday casserole that's a big hit, especially with teenage boys.
For OAMC: let cool, cut into individual servings and flash freeze them. When solid pack the servings in vacuum sealed bags and stick them in the freezer.
To reheat: Microwave until heated through or can be put in a casserole reheated in the oven at a low temp.
Are you craving that great Mexican rice from your favorite taco stand? Here it is. This is just like a good Mexican restaurant rice. Many recipes taste good... but the texture just isn't right. You know how it is... you have prepared scores of Mexican rice recipes but always have been disappointed. It may be delicious but kinda "gloopy and wet." Try this. Everything is pureed and cooked in. There are no chunks of anything... just dry fluffy rice with all the seasonings and just the tiniest hint of a tomato flavor. I will throw away all of my Mexican rice recipes- this is the one I have been looking for for years!
I don't own a rice cooker but some people have had disappointing results using one. You will also need to adjust your cooking time if you want to use brown rice. I recommend following the cooking instructions as directed. Proceed at your own peril if you stray.
A simple and delicious recipe from Gourmet Magazine (July 2009) that highlights delicious fresh summer ingredients. The corn is sautéed with scallions in butter, the tomatoes are lightly dressed with oil and cider vinegar, and then the two components are tossed together so that their flavors and juices mix into something new. The leftovers are great too!
I made this last year for a baby shower and it was a huge success. It was originally from the Pampered Chef website, but I couldn't find it there any longer. That's when I decided I should post it here so that I won't accidentally lose it. Very delicious and a hearty dip. I love the flavor that the ranch dressing gives. Enjoy!
A friend and I have recently become addicted to coffee with flavoured creamers (mmm... International Delight...), and then... I ran out - and so did the local store! So I hunted down recipes online until I found this one - it's sweet and creamy and (most importantly - to me, at least) not a powder!!! It's from thriftyfun.com.
