I love tabbouleh, and this recipe is really refreshing to enjoy on a hot summer's day. The recipe comes from the July 2009 issue of Good Housekeeping. This makes 12 side-dish servings or 6 main-dish servings. The cooking time is actually the time needed for cooking, cooling and refrigerating.
I love tofu, but my family only likes a few of the tofu recipes I make. This is one they really enjoy, though. When the tofu is cooking, I try not to leave the grill as the tofu sometimes can go from lightly charred to being overcooked and dark in a few minutes. I have included the time for marinating the tofu in the preparation time.
The key to getting stick-to-the-ribs results is to use a bottled thick teriyaki glaze rather than a thinner teriyaki sauce. This is a hands-off slow cooker recipe that turns out moist, tender and wonderfully flavored ribs.
I always seem to have "over-ripe" bananas that I try to use before they become way too mushy. I found this recipe in Good Housekeeping and tried it. All the other ingredients are staples in my pantry and it's a great way to use up those extra bananas -- my family thinks it is really delicious as well.
I found this recipe in Good Housekeeping and it caught my attention because it uses frisée, a type of lettuce green I've never tried before. I'm posting it so I won't forget to make it. (And also, the salad contains bacon -- if it weren't for health reasons, I'd find an excuse to eat bacon every day!)
This is a favorite salad of mine when I want something that's quick to prepare. If I have some pre-boiled eggs in the refrigerator I can get this on the table in about 5 minutes. (Note: the recipe calls for 3 tablespoons of jarred bacon pieces; however, I usually fry 3 slices of bacon, crumble them and use in place of the jarred bacon. This makes the prep time about 10 minutes longer.)
I always have a lot of chicken in the freezer and look for new recipes to make with it. This one fit the bill -- it's somewhat like a Chinese entreé and tastes great. Since it's a dish served at room temperature, it makes a nice summertime dinner.
This is a great alternative to the usual way of cooking a pot roast since it has just a little hint of fruity sweetness to it, and the cooked apricots and prunes add a delicious depth of flavor to the roast as well.
I'm always on the lookout for a good vegetarian entreé, and since I love orzo and tofu I tried this recipe. My son is not too fond of feta cheese so I left it out of his portion, but the rest of us enjoyed it just as written. Note: after making this a few times I decided to try goat cheese and it was really good -- my son even liked it!
