Nice comfort food from Everyday with Rachel Ray. I love eggplant and it provides a meaty taste without the meat. Of course it can be made in under 30 minutes. The Raviolini are tiny pillows of ravioli and I buy mine at my local Trader Joe's. Zaar didn't accept the raviolini as an ingredient so I had to list the ingredient as plain ravioli (but you should use the tiny ones).
This recipe was one of the top recipes published in 2008 by the Chicago Tribune newspaper in the Good Eating section. It was adapted from "The Woman's Day Cookbook for Healthy Living." The lemon zest provides a surprising zing.
I stumbled upon this recipe in this months issue of Everday with Rachel Ray. You have to use a cast iron skillet with this recipe to get the full results of a light golden and crispy crust. The dough is a snap to put together, and you can vary your toppings. If you would like you can use 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (intead of 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour) this will give the crust a healthier twist. I usually use white whole wheat flour. This recipe will make you think outside of the box when it comes to pizza making....and a reason to buy a cast iron skillet if you do not have one already.
This recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law, Fran. She gave me the recipe when I had an over surplus of zucchini from our garden, and this really hit the spot! Stuffed with two different cheeses (feta and Swiss) and baked inside the zucchini skin this recipe is a keeper. We usually eat the entire thing once baked, skin and all it makes a meal on its own. I have also used mozzarella cheese instead of the Swiss cheese.
Packed with whole grains, tender and moist, just a bit on the crumbly side, but not overly sweet. From The Baking Sheet, King Arthur's publication. Making these with the white whole wheat flour is best, although you can use whole wheat or even regular flour. When I made these, I sprinkled coarse sugar (or sparkling sugar) on top before baking.
These prizewinning muffins, created by Best Pumpkin Recipe Contest Winner Victoria Meacham of Albany, Ore. This was published in Quick and Simple Magazine. Makes a nice yummy moist muffin. The recipe says to add 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup of walnuts, but if you want you can reduce the amount and just add 1/4 cup raisins and 1/4 cup walnuts.
These drumsticks are coated with panko crumbs, and it gives it a nice crunch. The removal of the skin and the method of cooking (baking) reduces the messy deep-frying and the fat! Published in Woman's Day (May 2008)
From Cooking Light, March 2008 edition. The chocolate in this cake is not overly overpowering and has a yummy glaze. Although the recipe states to cool before eating, it sure tastes good while still slightly warm.
