When I make up a recipe of this, it's gone within an hour at our house. So yummy! And mostly healthy, too! I always make 2 recipes, in the hopes that there will be some leftovers the next day to put in the kids lunchboxes (in place of the usual sandwich). I usually make these to accompany soup, but sometimes I just make them for a snack.
This salad is so amazingly good. I'm totally addicted to it. It looks (and tastes) like something you'd eat in a restaurant. I know, you're thinking spinach with noodles???? But it is SO good. And don't let the long ingredient list scare you. Trust me it's worth the chopping. If I'm making this just for our family, I cut up all my veggies and put them in ziplock baggies. Then I make the dressing and the noodles. I keep all of it in the fridge and just pull it out as much as I want and enjoy the salad 2x in one week! I found it on Pioneer Woman's website (adapted from Jamie Oliver's version) and adapted it to my taste. As a side salad it probably serves more like 8 - 10. But if this is all you're eating then it will serve 4 - 6. It looks like you've got this huge salad and how is it all going to be eaten and then all of a sudden it's gone and people are asking for more!!
I love these crepes. But if you're looking for a super thin French type crepe then these may not be for you. These were tweaked for health, not taste. I still think they taste good though. You could eat them with any filling. But our family loves them with fruit sauce. I use a mixture of fruit cooked in some water with sugar to taste and thickened with cornstarch (I make this in the microwave while I make the crepes). I've eaten these with cheese or veggie filling too. Sometimes we also add cool whip, or dip the crepes in sugar or syrup.
I love this granola. It's not too sweet and has a nice citrus taste to it. It's great to give as gifts in a nice jar or plastic bag. My kids love to snack on it dry. Adapted from the Best of Bridge recipe book.
I just made these the other day. They were so incredibly easy. Only 4 ingredients! I loved them. So different. And right out the oven ... they taste like a fabulous French pastry. At least in my imagination ... seeing as I've never actually tried a French pastry right out of the oven.
This cake is so good! It's moist with a melt-in-your mouth texture! And it's so easy! Only one bowl to clean up when you're done. It also freezes great! Whenever I need a chocolate cake, this is the recipe I pull out.
This is our family's favorite fall/winter meal (and I don't normally like chili). This recipe is adapted from 'Jason's Chililicious' that I found on CZ's blog. In addition to the ingredients listed my secret ingredient is 1/2 a jar of Chili Sauce that I buy from Ten Thousand Villages (a local fair trade little shop ... check for one in your area, they're all over the place). I usually make 2 recipes and freeze half of it.
My aunt brought me these muffins along with the recipe and said that she felt she had to include the recipe so I'd 'understand' how healthy they were and that would explain the taste. Ha!! My dh and I loved the taste and the healthfulness of them and I have made them many times since. They are a heavier muffin (but moist) and very dark. And they do definitely have a healthier taste to them. Just the way we like it.
This is a family favorite. Sometimes I substitute chickpeas or other beans for the kidney beans. I suppose if you like ground beef, you could substitute ground beef for the kidney beans as well. If you love cheese, by all means, use more ... if I've got enough I do!
