I just love asparagus! Friends moved here (Florida) from the Dakotas and told me they picked it out of the ditches there!! How wonderful...I'd be wading through ditches everyday! I think its a "special" veggie, something I haven't ever seen grown here. This is a nice Asian themed asparagus salad. Chilling time is not included in prep and cooking time.....You will need to chill at least an hour and a half.
I love the smell of chicken roasting in the oven. It makes me think of holidays and family gatherings! Plus I can put it in the oven and concentrate on other things for a while....just enjoying the smell! Don't use a fryer...roasting chickens are a bit larger and have a higher fat content, making them more flavorful.
Although the original recipe calls for catfish, I've found you can use any firm, white fish in this recipe. Originally posted by Cynthia Holliday in Be Our Guest cookbook, but I've changed it a bit. The 2 hour soaking time is not included in prep or cook time.
Scrambled Eggs with a little something extra! Don't overcook the eggs. Just draw a spatula over the mixture occasionally instead of stirring constantly. This will keep the eggs from becoming dry and crumbly.
I have to admit, I'm a purist and love plain old banana bread. But my kids (and my Mom) are chocoholics, and love this version! So we alternate. I also prefer to leave the nuts out, but mom and kids like the nuts in. I've listed as optional.
