This came from a ladies group that met once a month where everyone brought their favorite dish and worked the afternoon on fund raising projects. It has since become a favorite dish for Sunday dinners, and potlucks at our house.
This recipe was one that my mom's best friend was famous for. Ms.Annette did not cook that much, but every time she was asked to bring something to a family get together it was this. I miss her a lot. She was like a second mom to me. She passed away about 10 years ago from cancer, so I am posting her recipes here for safe keeping. Maybe if you make this you will remember a lady who was sweet, that used to carry a pillow with her everywhere that she went and smile!
In memory of Annette Rhue.
This no fat side is so simple simple simple and very very tasty!
The Sweet Dried Cranberries plumped up in no fat chicken broth, water or even veggie broth for vegans with fresh scallions topped with toasted pine nuts for a bit of protein.
Prep and cook time is really no time at all!
This dish has been a staple on Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. I don't remember my mom making squash any other way. I just know that when I tried it as a child for the first time I remember how delicious it was. A Thanksgiving without it is not a real Thanksgiving at my house. Other's have tried to duplicate it and failed. There is only one way to make it and this is it. Don't substitute or change anything, follow the directions to a "T". Enjoy!
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."
I wanted to kick up the flavor in my buttermilk coleslaw recipe to accompany a spicy pork tenderloin sandwich. The combination was perfect! I set out on a mission to pair this coleslaw with other more traditional coleslaw accompaniments such as burgers and chili dogs. This recipe is a winner!
