    I consider this recipe to be one of my best "stand-by's!" It is a great "stand-by" recipe for family-friendly meals; to throw together as an easy one-pot meal for any occasion; for unexpected company; for easy weekend meal prep that allows for delicious leftovers all week; for a potluck, or to take to a family who is sick or in need; or for guest-worthy dinner parties (because it is so easy to make,so that the chef can enjoy the festivities, too). It is just a great and easy recipe that can be thrown together on a moment's notice! There are a million baked/roasted chicken recipes out there, but I like this one because it allows the chicken and potatoes to roast to a perfect crisp (yet so tender on the inside); the chicken turns out incredibly moist (thanks to the decadant butter); and the spices and garlic create a flavor-rich dish. I prefer to make it with butter or high quaility spread, but you can use olive oil in place of the butter, if you prefer. An added bonus to this recipe is that it will make your house smell heavenly, while it cooks. Mmmmm - good! :-)

    Recipe #413212

    This recipe is so easy and delicious! Original recipe from Kimberly Pierotti, from Milmay, NJ, as published in the Gooseberry Patch "Ready, Set, Eat!" cookbook. For added ease, use frozen, boil-in-bag ravioli and creamed spinach!

    Recipe #318845

    This soup is fabulous, and much easier than the more complicated, time-intensive potato soup that I sometimes make. It is easy to throw together on a weekday night, or for lunch. You can, of course, use real potatoes (2 cups potatoes, skinned and cut into cubes), but I find it is even easier, and just as delicious, to use canned, sliced potatoes. It is a filling, creamy, and hearty soup, one that can easily be served alone for a complete meal. Although shared with me by my sister-in law, it actually originally came from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, and then has been adjusted by me. You will love this soup - as my husband says, "This soup is awesome!!!! "

    Recipe #317098

    My husband came across this recipe in Men's Health magazine and asked me to make this. We just had this tonight for the first time, and we loved it! We appreciated its simplicity, its uniqueness, and the fact that it is a well-balanced dish - lean protein, veggies, beans, and whole grains - all in one pan (or almost all in one pan)! It has a wonderful flavor - that lovely sweet and spicy blend that is a mainstay of Indian/Moroccan food. I also loved that this was ready in under 30 minutes. Yummylicious!

    Recipe #286117

    I love the luscious combo of sweet and spicy in these home style baked beans. These are perfect for those folks who prefer just a dash of spiciness and/or just a dash of sweetness to their beans, with neither flavor overpowering the other. These are quick, and very easy to make, utilizing canned beans - yet, they taste slaved over and homemade. Enjoy!

    Recipe #262744

    I am always on the lookout for lower carb lunches that can be carried on the go, as I find to-go lunches (lunches that I can take to work) to be one of the greatest creative challanges of lower-carb eating. I discovered this recipe, and usually take it for lunch at least once per week. It is simple, yet delicious, and I find that it satisfies my sandwich cravings (especially with the diced dill pickle). It keeps well in the fridge for a day or two. Thought that I would share! :-)

    Recipe #257979

    This is a wonderful alternative to traditional bread stuffing, and tastes so good, you will hardly miss the bread! This is a recipe from one of Suzanne Somer's cookbooks (her dishes are delicious), and can be used by those who are on a low carb or controlled carb diet, those who utilize a food combining diet, or simply as a unique stuffing-like alternative. This can be cooked seperately from the turkey, or it can be cooked and then baked (stuffed) in the turkey (my preference, as it adds that wonderful turkey flavor). This is also awesome as a side dish for chicken, as well. I have some baking in a turkey right now (my husband and I were craving turkey and stuffing, but we are on a low carb diet, so this fit the bill perfectly). This is the second time that I have made this and it is really a wonderful treat, so I thought that I would share this recipe with all of my Zaar friends!

    Recipe #255981

    My husband and I like the idea of eating fish at least once per week, but, the problem is, we don't particulary care for fish (except for shell-fish). Imagine my surprise, then, when I came home from work, one night this week, and my husband had these waiting for me. This is a continuation of our attempts to experiment with fish recipes, that sort of disguise the taste of fish. And, this one was a lovely surprise, to both of us! We really enjoyed these salmon cakes, so I decided to share the recipe (for other non-fish lovers, and fish-lovers, alike). This is a low carb dish; thus, the pork rinds, instead of breadcrumbs (you can substitute breadcrumbs, if you prefer; however, the spicy pork rinds are what gives it a bit of a spicy bite). Please note that the prep/cooking does not include the one hour marinating time. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!

    Recipe #230452

    I created this super easy stir-fry one night, when I was in the mood for beef and veggies, but wanted a different and unique stir-fry. It turned out quite delicious, and is a great weeknight, or on-the-go, one-pan main dish! I highly recommend using baby summer vegetables (carrots, mushrooms, squash, etc), in this dish (which you can find in a frozen stir-fry veggie package at most grocery stores). Please also feel free to mix up, or experiment with, the spices (and the steak sauce)- these are just guesstimate measurements, as I use the "sprinkle to taste" formula, and do not measure the spices. Enjoy!

    Recipe #227018

    I made this receipe tonight, for the first time, and my husband and I LOVED it! So, of course, I had to post it here on Zaar! This is a nice twist on meatloaf (in, fact, I don't even like meatloaf, but I loved this)! It is incredibly flavorful, almost addicting (I know my husband could not stop eating it, and actually requested that we make this a weekly affair), and also inexpensive, and fairly easy to make. It is a perfect low carb main dish, and would be great with a variety of side dishes. Please also feel free to experiment with the spices, as these measurements are just estimates (I just used them all, to taste). Enjoy!

    Recipe #226911

    This is yet another baked chicken and rice recipe! However, I wanted to share my wonderful mother's recipe for it, because this particular recipe makes the rice turn out so nice and fluffy. When I have used other recipes for this dish, I have found that the rice often comes out overcooked. I think the secret to this recipe is that milk is used, along with the soup, keeping the rice nice and moist. I also love the onion soup mix added to this dish - it really jazzes up the flavor! This recipe is a wonderful dish to serve to company (I usually serve it with a nice, flavorful salad of some sort) because it is so easy to just throw it in the oven an hour or so before serving it to guests - so that the chef can enjoy the festivities, as well!

    Recipe #214676

    I love it when I discover a new low carb, South Beach way-of-life recipe, and this was one is yummo! I found this on another site, and then modified it slightly. I found that the finished product was fork-tender, flavorful, and even better without the tortillas! Since the steak is so tender and tasty in this dish, I do recommend going with a sirloin or higher-end steak, rather than an inexpensive steak - it is well worth it in this dish! A fabulous one pan-meal made in around 30 minutes - what more could you ask for??!! :-)

    Recipe #207820

    I was served this dressing (stuffing) at Thanksgiving and it was love at first sight! The hostess was kind enough to send us home with leftovers, and my husband and I spent days delighting in it. It will now be my staple dressing! Another to-die-for recipe from Jan!

    Recipe #199509

    My lovely step-mother, Jan, is one of the best cooks I know! This Beef Tenderloin is one of her specialty recipes, and it is absolutely mouth-watering delicious! I love it because it is quite fast and easy to cook (after the marinating time), yet, it is perfect for special occasion meals, because it tastes like you slaved over it. Please note that the prep/cooking time does not include the over-night marinating. Please also note that the marinade will come out as a paste (after cooking it)--this is normal (thickened by the cornstarch), and is meant to be place on the top of the meat, as it cooks like a wonderful crust!

    Recipe #199504

    My fabulous stepmother, Jan, has made this salad dressing for years, and everyone she serves it to just loves, loves loves it! She can't serve this, without almost everyone at the table begging her for the recipe; thus, the name I blessed the recipe with! :-) This is a bit of a sweet dressing, so it goes particularly well in a green salad, with a sliced fruit (like strawberries). Try a salad of mixed greens, feta cheese, sliced strawberries, and walnuts or pecans, as this makes a beautiful and delicious salad! I have also used it on a number of other types of salads, as well, and it works beautifully with most combinations! The recipe calls for vegetable oil, only because it keeps better in the fridge (when you make a generous amount to keep on hand all through the week, which I highly recommend), but you can also make it with olive oil, or an oil of your choice. I use almost no other salad dressing now! Thank you, Jan, for a real gem!

    Recipe #192863

    This is junk-food at its best - quick, inexpensive, filling, hearty, and fun! :-) It's also super easy to whip up and very kid and family-friendly! Great for dinner, lunch, potlucks, or sports-watching parties! A little secret: I almost always make this with chili from Wendy's -- it makes for an extra yummy treat!

    Recipe #191516

    I made up this recipe, inspired by a pre-stuffed flank steak that I bought at Trader Joe's. I hope that it turns out as yummy for you as it did for me!

    Recipe #190549

    This recipe is fabulous - perfectly roasted whole chicken, with roasted garlic to squeeze right onto the chicken (if you prefer), and crusty french bread, with squeezed garlic. Too-die-for! If you so choose, you can actually skip eating the roasted garlic (unless you are a true garlic-lover, and can't resist :-). Simply cooking the chicken with the garlic in the pan adds incredible flavor to the chicken!. I also sometimes throw in some quartered red potatoes to the pan, which creates amazing roasted garlic potatoes. If I do this, I always sprinkle the potatoes with salt, pepper, and rosemary, too, and sprinkle with olive oil, both at the start of the cooking time, and just before serving (toss well). Makes for a fabulous complete meal!

    Recipe #179638

    I love garlic, and I love chicken cooked in the crock pot (so tender it falls right off of the bones), so this is a perfect combo of the two. I have some cooking in the crock pot right now, and I am longing for it to be done! :-) I never measure the spices, so these are estimates - please feel free to experiment. It is cooked with loads of garlic, so loving garlic is a plus!

    Recipe #179050

    Something different for breakfast - quick, easy, and delicious! I often make this with spicy mustard, pepper jack cheese, green chilies, and sliced onion, but I like spicy! Use your creativity and build the breakfast sandwich of your dreams (the possibilities are endless)! :-)
