This easy but elegant entree first appeared in "Quick Cooking" magazine. Someone posted this at the Somersize website, which is where I found it. I usually have this over a bed of fried spinach or zucchini ribbons.
While this recipe is good any time it is the first one requested when the fall apples ripen. It was passed to me by a family member. The recipe calls for an 8x8 deep baking pan. Family member uses a corning ware casserole dish for the baking which makes for a lovely dessert. I often bake it in a pie plate and when cool slice and serve as you would pie. Using white sugar in the crumb crust has it so tasting like pastry. Quick and easy to make. NOTE - recently found this recipe from an old family cookbook is called aunties 'Old Fashioned Crumb Cake' and calls for baking in a 425 oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until brown and crisp. Just made it and found baked at the higher temperature it very like an apple crisp - an absolutely delicious version of Almost Apple Pie and another great apple dessert to serve family and friends. Ovens vary - I used a slightly lower oven temp.
Because the garlic is cooked whole instead of minced, they keep most of their flavor. Only a hint of garlic flavors the rest of the dish. The cloves themselves mellow with cooking so you can eat them whole.
This fabulous dessert is 3 WW points a serving and can be made with fresh, canned, or frozen fruit. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook." Incredibly easy to make, I fall back on this when unexpected company comes for dinner.
This is perfect fare for my low carb diet-Somersizing. I really have developed a passion for artichoke hearts thanks to Just Cher's Artichoke Bread. I love this because it's filling and so easy to make!
This is my daughter Nomi's all-time favorite way to eat rice. My friend Debbie, who is married to a Persian, makes this for her every time we're over at their house for a meal. I figured I was going to have to learn to make this myself, since Nomi just adores this rice and asks for it every time. It's a little complicated, but gets easier each time you make it (says Debbie). Well worth the effort, I'm a big fan of this rice myself, and EVERYONE always fights over the crust! Prep time includes soaking.
