From Betty Crocker's 1958 "Dinner for Two" cookbook, chocolate cookies that seem a bit different than other chocolate cookie recipes I've tried.
Update: The texture of these is much more like a cake than a cookie or a brownie. To make them more cooking like, I'd recommend using butter instead of shortening and full fat sour cream. Also I've updated to add an icing recipe which really makes these stand out.
This is a true "Dutch Apple Pie." This recipe comes from a cookbook I picked up in the heavily-Dutch populated city of Pella, Iowa. This recipe, however, which features a very crumbly butter crust, is very similar to the apple pie recipes I ate often in the Netherlands. I think the lemon rind in the crust is what sends this one over the top.
A quick, easy chicken recipe for days when you don't want to spend time in the kitchen. Even finicky people will eat it. Goes great with traditional potatoes or rice. As it bakes, the garlic and sugar will melt into a sweet glaze. Customize with your favorite herbs or spices. After many comments, I have reduced the temperature at which to cook the chicken. I have also added instructions to wrap your baking sheet or casserole dish in aluminum foil for easier clean-up.
From the February/March 2002 issue of Light & Tasty magazine. And a tiny dash of ground nutmeg as a mysterious "secret" ingredient. Try adding pre-cooked chicken or veggies (cooked asparagus, broccoli, roasted red peppers, cooked mushrooms) for something different. Also, maybe substitute some of the cottage cheese for cream cheese or sour cream. Whole wheat fettucine will also add slightly more fiber.
This a Greek take on the classic beef stuffed pepper. Lemon, cinnamon, fennel and oregano spice up traditional ground beef and onions, while healthy quinoa adds extra fiber. There seem to be a lot of steps, but this one goes together in about 20 minutes. It works great if you have pre-browned ground beef in your freezer.
I made up this yummy salad by combining a few I found here on 'Zaar with my every day salad. This is a satisfying and healthy main dish salad. Very tasty with grilled baguette. Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you; it goes together in a flash.
