I like to do the asparagus in the oven, as it takes no watching and i can avoid overcooking it more easily. I like to do this for weekend brunch with Bacon and Cheese Omelet (also an oven preparation) by ellie2 (#102568) and i throw in some of the potatoes i keep available frozen from my own recipe Herb Roasted Potatoes (#30210) Makes a pretty breakfast, too.
A great way to use one of those salmon gift packs you got for Christmas. Uses no heavy cream and little butter, making it pretty healthy, as the only real oil is super healthy fish oil. The Wondra flour is not essential, but i like to use--makes for a smooth soup fast. Freezes well.
This doesn't save time but it does make consistently al dente pasta every time (very important for folks in warm climates like mine in New Orleans). It cuts down on the steam you put out into your kitchen.
One of the most-often-requested recipes from Piccadilly Cafeterias. I found it in the online edition of the Baton Rouge Advocate. This is not exactly health-conscious, due to the large amount of sugar, but it is delicious and i guarantee kids will eat these carrots!
Tasty potato dish that freezes exceptionally well. I do 10 lbs at a time and take out just what we need. Never thaw them before heating, tho, as they get soggy. Put still-frozen potatoes in a 350 0ven for 30 min +/- and they'll be almost as good as freshly done. Good for Sunday brunch. My adaptation of the recipe the Grey Poupon people had in their ad a few years ago.
A hearty one-dish meal with a salad and some nice bread. Combo of several recipes i have tried. Came about while looking for a way to use up leftover baked salmon from one of those HUGE filets from Sam's Club.
These were a whole lot better than anyone expected! my DH and my best girlfriend thought they were superb! They still have quite a few calories, but still an improvement over regular. Original recipe appeared in this month's Cooking Light. yes, that's right- a whole TABLESPOON of cinnamon! 193 cal 6.3 g fat (29%) 1.1 g fiber
Our family's favorite cookies. They pack a LOT of flavor, but are not decorative cookies. They came from my MIL, who is now afflicted with Parkinson's and cannot recall the many times we made them together over the years. We eat them and remember happier times. :-)
