A light, tomato based soup with meatballs and loaded with vegetables. Ground beef meatballs are stuffed with rice and mint. Be sure to use fresh mint in these meatballs and don't leave out the peas. To me this is what gives this soup alot of flavor. You could substitute ground turkey for the ground beef too.
My sister-in-law brought this over at Christmas time. I couldn't stop eating it! It is so quick and easy to prepare and absolutely delicious on crackers! It's even better the next day! If you don't like onions, you can use onion powder instead.
I came up with this one night trying to think of a way to use up the rest of Kittencal's world's best french salad dressing. Beef round steak marinated in the french dressing and stuffed with veggies and cooked in my pressure cooker makes a deep, rich brown gravy that is delicious. I served this with mashed potatoes and a nice green salad makes some good ole comfort food.
I never seem to have buttermilk around so I love this recipe that doesn't call for it. I stayed at a B&B in West Virginia years ago and the wife prepared homemade blueberry pancakes and she had walnuts in them. They were out of this world! This tastes like the ones I had.
This is a light wheat bread made with flax seed. It's a moist bread that is also great toasted. I fix this in my dough cycle in the bread machine and shape it, let it rise and bake it in my regular oven.
Great flavored pizza crust made with whole wheat flour. This recipe calls for ingredients that everyone probably has available. It's slightly thick and is very easy to make. Depending on the weather, more flour or more water maybe needed at the start of the kneading cycle.
This pork and capicola dish is topped with a luscious sherry demi-glaze sauce made up of walnuts and dried apricots. It is bursting with flavor! Serve this with cheesy polenta and a nice green salad. I purchased an envelope of demi-glaze instead of making my own. A real time-saver! Capicola also comes in sweet or spicy. I prefer the spicy.
This chicken dish is loaded with apples and walnuts cooked in a rich chicken broth with goat cheese lightly seasoned with thyme and served over pasta of your choice. A nice green salad, a loaf of fresh bread and a nice glass of Pinon Noir and you have a great meal!
My sister fixed this for my and husband and I and we loved it. The recipe came from Voyageur's wild rice. What I like about this soup is that it doesn't have alot of spices in it where you can't taste the vegetables and ham. I put the vegetables in my food processor which saves alot of time. This recipe makes alot of soup. I cut the recipe in half when I make it. This is an easy and delicious soup for on a cold winters day. A nice loaf of bread and you've got a great lunch!
My mom gave me this recipe years ago. It's not your typical porcupine balls made with tomato sauce. Meatballs made out of ground chuck have onions and rice in them and cream of celery soup poured over the meatballs and baked in the oven. I like these with mashed potatoes and a side of green beans. Good ole comfort food!
This egg casserole is great for overnight guests. It's like deviled eggs with a rich, creamy mushroom sauce over the top. It can be made the night before and the next morning just pop it in the oven. Serve with some nice fresh fruit.
If you like veal chops that will wake up your taste buds with the great flavors of a lot of your favorite herbs, then you will love this recipe! I cook the veal chops on my charcoal grill over indirect heat so they don't have a tendency to dry out. With a baked potato and a nice green salad, this will definitely impress your guests!
While I was living in Texas I got this recipe from a friend. I don't think hatch chiles are available up north so I substituted serrano chiles. This is a quick and easy salsa that you can make as hot as you want. The fresh cilantro I think really gives it a good flavor!
This light, tender, slightly sweet bread is so good with butter and honey on it. It is also great toasted for breadfast. I fixed this in my dough cycle in the bread machine and then bake it in my regular oven. Depending on the humidity, you may have to add a little more flour.
