Your mother was right--eat your vegetables, they're good for you! And if they're tucked beneath a blanket of cheese or swimming in a bath of melted butter, I imagine they're even better than she'd promised.
This is a great basic recipe for zucchini patties. We love them just like this but you can adjust to your taste by adding garlic, chili powder or even grated carrots. We love dipping them in sour cream too. ENJOY!
The onions themselves are awesome in salads, on pizzas, in pasta salads, or on sandwiches. The "leftover" marinade makes the perfect base for a salad dressing. The tangy sweet combination is addictive.
A delicious poolside snack - or a great accompaniment for a barbecue. These tangy onion rings are delicious served with the spicy lime dip. I have also used low-fat mayonnaise, in an attempt to lighten the calories!
This recipe is all about fresh taste! The sweetness of freshly picked corn is balanced with the zing of lime and cilantro. It's one of our family favorites. You'll also enjoy the easy technique for cooking fresh corn in the microwave.
From America's Test Kitchen. This looks just wonderful. "To prepare the asparagus for this salad, we found that broiling concentrates the flavor of the asparagus and lightly caramelizes the peel. We prefer to use thin (under 5/8-inch) asparagus under the broiler-this lets us skip the peeling step and allows the spears to cook more evenly."
This is Grandma Nichols's recipe...I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! We miss you, Grandma! I always HATED cooked cauliflower...until I tasted this! It's oh, so, good! Great with holiday roasts, hams, turkey, etc. or just on it's own when you are pressed for time and don't have the energy to cook a big dinner.
From the 1946 edition of Joy of Cooking, and not to be found in subsequent editions (at least not the newer ones--I have three different editions now and am passing on the newest one). These are delicious and an unusual side dish (1-2 each) or vegetarian main dish (serving 2-4 per person). Since this is from a fairly old cookbook, actual measurements are nonexistent for many of the ingredients.
I HAVE made these and remember loving them, but that was 30 or so years ago. I shall make them again soon and edit the recipe to add suggested amounts and estimated times.
The onion cases may be made ahead; the active prep time of 30 minutes assumes they are premade. The time of 90 minutes includes making the onion cases.
These are a family-favorite they fry up light and so fluffy, a must drizzled pancake or maple syrup on top, servings is only estimated it will depend on how much the batter you drop from the spoon --- these can also be made in a deep-fryer with oil heated to 365°F :)
This is a highly rated recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Channel and worth making! I have tweaked it slightly and doubled the complete amounts to suit our tastes --- Paula has a house seasoning blend mix which is 1/2 cup salt mixed with 2 tablespoons black pepper and 2 tablespoons garlic powder, she uses a small amount in this casserole, you have the option of omitting the fresh garlic and adding it in, store the remaining mix in an air tight container for up to 6 months, I strongly recommend using low-sodium cream of mushroom soup
I was surprised not to see this one on Zaar! Tyler Florence said, "Once you try this, you'll never have corn on the cob any other way." We agree wholeheartedly! The corn steams and cooks in it's own husk without any pre-soaking or anything. The corn's flavor is intensified right in the husk! After removal from the oven, just pull back the husk and use it for a handle. The silk comes off with the husk! Let me know if you like corn this way as much as we do!
This recipe has been entered for ZWT II & was found on the net courtesy of The Straits Cafe at: straitscafe.com. It is so easy to prepare & the name kinda says it all, doesn't it? Times have been estimated.
