This recipe is by Anupy Singla, whose cookbook, "The Indian Slow Cooker", is a publishing sensation. She says slow cookers are particularly suitable for Indian cooking, reminiscent of clay cookers that would have been used for village cooking. This recipe is a traditional and classic North Indian dish that you would find in every home, but not in restaurants. Comfort food for Punjabis, this is the dish her family requests the most.
From Food and Wine magazine, 9/10 issue. Chef Kevin Gillespie, who draws on his Southern roots to create dishes, often serves this over thinly sliced tomatoes. I substituted rice vinegar for the cider vinegar and used jarred roasted red peppers, because that is what I had handy, and just forgot about the Tabasco sauce, but still thought this was tasty.
This has been a family favorite for years. I got the recipe from a 1983/1984 issue of 'Country Cooking'. I usually make it in the crockpot and allow much more time to cook. It's a budget saver and kid pleaser too! The flavor is rich and 100% comfort food and the dumplings, oh, the dumplings!! Enjoy!!
This dish turned out perfect with my minor additions in order to suit our tastes, adding the optional "heat" of Sambal Oelek, which I would strongly recommend. The coconut milk tends to lessen the intensity of the heat. I did not use low sodium products as originally suggested, but it's an option.
Mixture is very wet to work with. You may want to spray your hands with oil to prevent the meat from sticking to your hands.
I got 20 medium size meatballs using a 1/8 cup measure. Recipe by: Family Circle Magazine, April 2013
The original recipe called for raw veal. I have changed it to use leftovers, add color and create more sauce. The fun here is that you can use other spices or herbs in place of nutmeg, add more veggies, whatever suits.
This recipe is from Stephanie of "A Year of Slow Cookin" fame. She used her crockpot everyday in 2008, eventually published a couple of cookbooks. This was a very delicious dessert. I made it in my 3 qt slow cooker. See Notes in recipe for comments. Cooking time does not include chilling.
My brother lives in a part of the country that does not recognize rye bread - not at all! So I've been searching for an easy rye bread recipe, and ran across this one, from the Fleischman Yeast company. Batter breads are an easy introduction to yeast breads for beginning bakers. Any kind of rye flour can be used - light, medium, pumpernickel . Sunflower seeds or other seeds can be substituted for the caraway. Batter breads tend to be softer than more traditional recipe breads so that your slices will be a bit thicker.The recipe originally called for 2 tsp salt, which I've reduced to 1 1/2 tsp.
This recipe comes from Jere and Emilee Gettle, who own an heirloom seed business. I prefer to use red, orange or yellow peppers instead of green. Omit the seeds from the jalapeno if you prefer. Featured in Food and Wine, 8/11
I was clicking through forums to find a new way to cook broccoli and stumbled on a link to a website that hasn't been updated since 1996... We decided to go for it and the result was broccoli that people consumed as if it was candy. Asian-tart-crunchy-slightly-spicy-candy. Credit to www.johnrussell.name
From Cooking Light. The recipe originally called for water, but I believe that broth adds a great deal of flavor. I use either chicken or vegetable broth. You can also make this with regular barley, but need to adjust the cooking time in the first step.
The original recipe for these rolls called for ingredients not common in the US. So I fiddled with it and came up with these rolls. The onion taste goes throughout but is not overwhelming. They make wonderful sandwiches or accompaniment to soup or salad.
This recipe came from Real Simple. It's one that you clearly can modify to use whatever you have handy in the pantry and fridge. Bringing a lunch from home is a great way to save money - even the employee cafeteria is getting pricey! You can use pretty much any short variety of pasta. I would add julienned sundried tomatoes to several of these, or some chopped red bell pepper, for color and flavor. I threw in a little Recipe #269360 with the Asian version. Please note: I seem to get only 4 servings from a pound of pasta, so you might want to check that.
I was on my home from the grocery, all set to make a different recipe, when I stopped at the library and saw this one in the May 2009 issue of Bon Appetit. I had to sub potatoes for the parsnips and used chicken broth instead of beef, but ended up very pleased with this recipe. I did not thicken the gravy, but include the instructions for doing so. This goes very well with mashed potatoes.
I believe I got this recipe from Southern Living - found it scribbled on a program from a conference I attended in Florida. I am not a huge fan of packaged cake mixes, but this is really a life saver when you need something fast and have bananas. I've brought it to a number of potluck, where it's been a real crowd-pleaser.
