Ahoy, mateys! Looking for a hearty and delicious breakfast before you set sail? Delight in the flavors of this rum-enhanced French Toast with a crunchy topping! It beats hard tack any day…. Me crew enjoys it with a side of sausage links (meat or vegetarian friendly ones, as desired). Enjoy! (This recipe was created for the Raiders of the Lost Pantry pirate contest in the Contests & Events forum - come check out the forum!)
“Sweet and sassy” because the sauce adds some sweet heat and tart and tangy flavors to the variety of veggies and noodles. Depending on your tastebuds and the heat your chili sauce packs, feel free to add some hot sauce or red pepper flakes to give it an extra punch! Enjoy!
Another favorite recipe from my grandma! It was not uncommon to get sealed baggies of this granola in our stockings on Christmas morning - a big hit with all the grandkids! This is an easy but flavorful granola - we always especially liked the dried cranberry version, but raisins also work.
A delicious meat-free take on a shepherd's pie from VegNews. We really enjoy this - nice and filling with plenty of flavor. I have successfully subbed in lentils for the veggie crumbles before - I just prepare 3/4 cup dried lentils according to package directions and proceed from there with the recipe.
A twist on a yogurt parfait featuring tropical fruits and a little bit of crunch from a homemade granola! You could prep the syrup and granola the night before for quicker morning preparation – just store the syrup in the fridge and the granola in a sealed container. This makes a nice presentation when served in a clear cup to reveal the layers – individual trifle bowls work great.
Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: A refreshing twist on potato pancakes, topped with a fresh homemade salsa. This works well as a side or an appetizer, or even breakfast, with an egg on top of each pancake and then topped with the salsa.
A colorful and flavorful salad with a tasty syrup. This also works well as a salad, tossing all of the melon balls together in a large serving bowl and drizzling with the syrup and topped with cilantro. Found on a grocery store recipe card.
I loved the idea of using quinoa in tacos, and this is what has evolved as a favorite variation around here. Feel free to adjust toppings to your favorites. This also works with soft tacos (the 6" size), but the extra texture provided by a crunchy shell with the soft filling is a nice touch.
Halloween is a favorite holiday around here, so every year, I look out for new recipes to add to the seasonal rotation. This was inspired by a really cute photo I saw on MyRecipes. Cooking time is chilling time.
I love to serve finger foods at parties and get-togethers, and I wanted to do some tiny pies, but all I could find were recipes for regular muffin sized "mini" apple pies. So here's what I came up with for tiny bite-sized apple pies! I have successfully made these gluten free by checking ingredients and using a gluten free flour blend. Prep time includes 1 hour chill time for dough.
Delicious way to use up zucchini! The flavor profile is similar to other cakes up here, but the proportions are different. This is tasty and not too sweet when served plain, or you could dress it up before serving by sprinkling with some powdered sugar or adding frosting - chocolate or cream cheese are great options with this! Just allow the cake to cool before frosting, if doing so. I received this recipe from a friend at my bridal shower.
