Ahoy, mateys! Looking for a hearty and delicious breakfast before you set sail? Delight in the flavors of this rum-enhanced French Toast with a crunchy topping! It beats hard tack any day…. Me crew enjoys it with a side of sausage links (meat or vegetarian friendly ones, as desired). Enjoy! (This recipe was created for the Raiders of the Lost Pantry pirate contest in the Contests & Events forum - come check out the forum!)
“Sweet and sassy” because the sauce adds some sweet heat and tart and tangy flavors to the variety of veggies and noodles. Depending on your tastebuds and the heat your chili sauce packs, feel free to add some hot sauce or red pepper flakes to give it an extra punch! Enjoy!
Inspired by the light, summery flavors of Vietnamese Salad Rolls, these Cabbage Salad Cups bring crunch and a flavorful sauce to delight your tastebuds. Feel free to chop the veggies in a food processor if you have one, and adjust the chili pepper flakes to your heat preference in the sauce. Enjoy!
Another favorite recipe from my grandma! It was not uncommon to get sealed baggies of this granola in our stockings on Christmas morning - a big hit with all the grandkids! This is an easy but flavorful granola - we always especially liked the dried cranberry version, but raisins also work.
A delicious meat-free take on a shepherd's pie from VegNews. We really enjoy this - nice and filling with plenty of flavor. I have successfully subbed in lentils for the veggie crumbles before - I just prepare 3/4 cup dried lentils according to package directions and proceed from there with the recipe.
I saw this featured on a slideshow from Delish. It is a great variation on a salad - the dressing is nice and has a little zip to it too! You'll want to marinate the chicken for at least an hour before cooking (but you could do it the night before to make for a fast meal the next day) - which is included in the prep time.
A twist on a yogurt parfait featuring tropical fruits and a little bit of crunch from a homemade granola! You could prep the syrup and granola the night before for quicker morning preparation – just store the syrup in the fridge and the granola in a sealed container. This makes a nice presentation when served in a clear cup to reveal the layers – individual trifle bowls work great.
Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: A refreshing twist on potato pancakes, topped with a fresh homemade salsa. This works well as a side or an appetizer, or even breakfast, with an egg on top of each pancake and then topped with the salsa.
A colorful and flavorful salad with a tasty syrup. This also works well as a salad, tossing all of the melon balls together in a large serving bowl and drizzling with the syrup and topped with cilantro. Found on a grocery store recipe card.
I loved the idea of using quinoa in tacos, and this is what has evolved as a favorite variation around here. Feel free to adjust toppings to your favorites. This also works with soft tacos (the 6" size), but the extra texture provided by a crunchy shell with the soft filling is a nice touch.
Turkey & havarti is a great combo on its own, and this is a fun twist on it for those who like some spicy heat! Thin deli-sliced turkey makes the sandwich a little more compact, but leftover turkey will be just as tasty, if a bit messier to eat. Feel free to adjust the cayenne pepper and jalapeno amounts (or deseed the jalapeno to lower the heat) to your taste. You can also use bread of your choice.
Halloween is a favorite holiday around here, so every year, I look out for new recipes to add to the seasonal rotation. This was inspired by a really cute photo I saw on MyRecipes. Cooking time is chilling time.
I love to serve finger foods at parties and get-togethers, and I wanted to do some tiny pies, but all I could find were recipes for regular muffin sized "mini" apple pies. So here's what I came up with for tiny bite-sized apple pies! I have successfully made these gluten free by checking ingredients and using a gluten free flour blend. Prep time includes 1 hour chill time for dough.
