One of nature's finest creations: squash. Squash appeals to most pallets and pairs well with virtually every food category. I served this with a glass of Merlot, black seedless grapes and banana-walnut-cranberry bread--a heavenly combination. Enjoy!
I LOVE Chinese food! Inasmuch, I frequent Chinese Restaurants and Markets and am not bashful when it comes to complementing the chef or asking a store owner questions about their many scrumptious products! This recipe has two Asian Market products in it (in addition to soy sauce) that I believe makes all the difference in the world. With every bite you will be making the YUM sound!
Cooking fish doesn't need to be complicated. This is a simple way to make salmon (boneless, skinless) with no fuss or mess. I use the individually freeze wrapped portions. The sides of salad and potatoes are published in my other recipes. Serve hot. Enjoy!
I found these magical little beans . . . black beans in garlic sauce at a local Asian market. They are so good, they can turn any meal into an exotic affair. Check it out with my Cuban beef, chicken and Jamaican shrimp recipes. You'll love it! They are equally delectable! Enjoy!
Who doesn't love cashews? These lovely nuts are like no other. Their flavor is delicate and lost if cooked however. Be sure to add the cashews to this dish with all heat off at the very end when ready to serve. Simply scrumptious! Enjoy!
Remember my motto when cooking this dish or most any other: If you've got it, sneak it in! Were trying to eat a rainbow each and every day so if you have a variety of vegetables, use them. And, believe it or not you can't even taste a carrot when shredded nor spinach when it is cooked down. This recipe is delicious as is but feel free to improvise even more as you strive for reaching that rainbow!
At lunchtime today I was taking out my ingredients for a stir fry that I was intending to make tonight when creativity struck and I came up with this wonderful salad. It all began with my carrot curler that just arrived in the mail today moments earlier. I'm beginning to appreciate how really good cooking is also a really good work of art. Enjoy!
Have your recycling bin handy and know that the only "work" involved in this recipe is in the opening of cans (after your ground meat has fried). Chilli from a can? Yes, I know, it doesn't sound the greatest but I guarantee you it is, you'll see . . . giver her a try!
Grilling meat is easy. This recipe takes the "work" out of nutritional vegetable side dishes that accompany many picnics. This recipe can be prepared one to two hours ahead of time, placed in cooler and carried off to the park or backyard for later grilling. There's something about grilled vegetables that make them oh so good!
Food should never be boring. Don't be afraid to try spices you wouldn't normally use in a dinner dish. And remember, a pinch of this and a pinch of that can go a long way as you will taste here. Enjoy!
Living in a cold climate can be tough. But, when you have a variety of hearty soups and stews and sauces, you can feel easily comforted by their scrumptious tastes and satiating qualities and almost, just almost forget where you live. This recipe does just that. It's absolutely delicious! Enjoy!
Our Grand Darlings are split between two homes on the weekends and during the holidays so we celebrated Easter last weekend on April Fools Day with Ham and all the trimmings. Therefore, today, Easter Sunday, I decided to make Easter Sausage with an ensemble of added goodies to make it special. My Peter said it was "magnificent." I simply said "thank you." Enjoy!
The beauty of Casseroles is you virtually cannot make a mistake. I am equally guided by my cravings, the food we have on hand and optimizing nutritional content when inventing any dish. To maximize the protein portion here I added the chick peas on a whim. This dish makes a nice any meal: lunch, snack or dinner. Enjoy!
