One thing we really miss now that we're trying to cut back on the sodium is canned soups. We never realized the amount of sodium we were consuming through the soups we purchased!
This is strange sounding, and I made it quite by accident, but we think that, although it might not be as thick as canned soup, it certainly has the flavor. DH says it has more flavor than canned - an explosion of taste!
Withdrawal symptoms are going away .....
I love to freeze part of the fruit I use in smoothies because that eliminates the need to use ice and water down the flavor!
This is a refreshing, yet rich-tasting smoothie that we enjoy often.
Prep time does not include time to freeze bananas or slice mangoes.
A healthy snack for kids and grownups, too! Vegetarians can substitute the marshmallows with nuts or other small candies that contain no animal product, like vegan marshmallows! Can get the kids involved with making their snack, too. After an adult cuts the apple wedges, the child(ren) can assemble their "lips."
I think I checked all 87 short ribs recipes to be sure this one isn't posted, so here it is!
The original recipe came in a microwave cookbook that came with the oven, but using the slow cooker suits me better right now, so I've been making it that way.
Sounds really unusual, but is totally good!
Serve in a soup bowl with cornbread.
With Valentine's Day looming, there is still plenty of time to plan Mardi Gras dinners and this is one of our favorite dishes!
I found it several years ago in Gourmet Magazine, where credit was given to Rebecca Fulcher of Newnan, Georgia.
The only changes I make is to cut the bay leaves down to 1 instead of the 4 called for. I do this because it seems to us that 4 bay leaves overpowers the other flavors.
Soaking the beans overnight is essential and not included in prep time.
We totally enjoyed this version of beef pot pie.
I think I invented the recipe so, until I learn that I didn't, I'll claim credit!
Whether original or not, it put dinner on the table last night with no work on my part and cleanup was a breeze, too!
I'll add that this makes one pie, because the preview of my recipe omits the 1 and adds an "S" to shell.
This recipe is from the Bully Hill wine site. I've found it to be a refreshing, tasty alternative to ordinary coleslaw. Cook time is chill time and the number of servings is an estimate.
When we can't get the Sweet Walter White, we use Bully Hill white wine - not quite as sweet, but very good, too!
Years ago, a friend started giving my son a batch or two of these for Christmas. Today, I have to make them for him, but they are easy, so I really don't mind. Son likes them made with light brown sugar, but they can be made with dark. The recipe is a little different from others that are posted, so I will add these from Miss Sarah ..
This recipe, from the Junior League of Houston, is a wonderful addition to any meal, especially during the holidays. It's also a welcoming break from the heavy, creamy desserts usually served during The Season! Add time for chilling to the cook time on this one.
This recipe is from Betty Crocker. I suppose I like it so much because, while I really enjoy mincemeat, a slice of pie is just too much mincemeat for me.
With this great cookie, you can enjoy mincemeat but not be overwhelmed by it!
This is a recipe from Woman's Day and one that I have used for several years. Easy and quick, they are always a hit at gatherings. You can make what the DH calls the "real kind" with a liqueur or the "virgin kind" with plain old extract.
One thing we are sworn to do where I work is listen to our customers.
That paid off big time for me when, the other day, a customer was looking for a tawny port. She said she was in town visiting her family and she had to have it for her spaghetti sauce.
I took her to the port and then inquired about her sauce.
This recipe is what she told me. It's one of those "Go Figure" recipes that turned out every bit as delicious as she said it would.
You can taste a little of the sweetness, but it's a great variation and we enjoyed it very much.
