This is adapted from a Cooking Light recipe and works beautifully with Chef-V's Cilantro-Lime Chicken, Recipe #308492. Serve this salsa atop the grilled chicken for a colorful and delicious main course.
My husband's cousin gave me this recipe which is so darn easy, it's unbelievable. Everyone who has had it has loved it. You can make the glaze early in the day and microwave it right before serving, after you take the tenderloin off of the grill. We don't even season the tenderloin -- just throw it on the grill; slice, and drizzle this glaze over the slices.
This recipe, slightly adapted from Cooking Light, is full of fresh flavor. The mix of broccoli with celery, raisins, grapes, and sunflower seeds adds color and texture. Quick to prepare, it keeps well and can definitely be made ahead. Hope you enjoy it!
This recipe started with the question of what to do with leftover ham. It's an adapted recipe from Taste of Home. Although very rich, we loved the mix of fresh vegetables with the ham in a cream-based sauce. I'm going to try the recipe again, lightening the sauce by using half and half with chicken broth to replace the cream.
This is my favorite make-ahead mashed potato recipe, adapted from Southern Living. In fact, it's my favorite mashed potato recipe of all that I've tried. It presents beautifully and can stand alone without gravy or further butter. (And it doubles nicely.) Enjoy!
This is a wonderful dish from Meals.com which I've slightly tweaked. It looks fabulous, feeds 8-10, and has gotten great reviews from meat-lovers and vegetarians. For those who like to make things ahead, I prepare the entire dish and set in the frig; then pour the Alfredo/ricotta sauce over at the last minute before baking.
I only use Nellie & Joe's Key Lime Juice when I make this to ensure a tart key lime pie. This has a meringue topping. Easy to make but you need to chill it overnight so that the flavors really work together. See what you think :)
This is a Buitoni recipe, slightly adapted, that is quick in preparation due to prepared ingredients. Of course, you could always use your homemade cream sauce but if in a pinch for time, this will work wonders.
This is a slightly adapted version of a recent Southern Living recipe. It is so flavorful and makes a beautiful presentation. AND after making it, you'll also have a quick and easy recipe for bruschetta. Enjoy!
This is a quick, easy and delicious appetizer and best yet, the topping can be made ahead and refrigerated. I think the recipe originated from Southern Living but it was given to me by a friend -- just had to have it after trying it!
I love the fact that this is a baked ravioli in a cream sauce that is quick and easy to prepare. It's delicious, and the mushrooms can be cooked ahead to save time at the dinner hour. I've tried cheese ravioli and spinach/cheese ravioli -- both are great!
