Use the pinton variety of plantain in this recipe (yellow with black spots) as it holds its shaped after cooked. Published in the June 2008 issue of "Cooking Light." I am a big plaintain fan but don't eat them often even though they are very easy to find in grocery stores here in Nebraska because of our Mexican population. This is a simple and easy way to prepare them that doesn't require frying. Posted for ZWT 4 - Central and South America.
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.
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.
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.
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.
