Recipe from package of pork chops.Prep time does not include marinating time. You can alternately use dried chipotle, just rehydrate in hot water for about 15 mins and then chop.
I actually like this better as a marinade for pork tenderloin.
I was hungry for salmon patties, wanted something fresh tasting and healthy. Was also hungry for cilantro. This is what I came up with, it will be my only way to cook canned salmon from now on...hope you enjoy!
*Note: the amounts for onion, peppers and herbs are approximate. I typically use more of all and especially more sriracha...use your discretion!
I know this isn't actually a "recipe", but I love to cook with wine, but I absolutely hate to waste good wine, and absolutely hate to use bad wine for cooking. This method enables me to save that wine for future recipes and to add those "not quite a glass" leftovers from the good stuff to assure a continual supply of cooking wine!
This is more of a tip than a recipe....I love to grill on cedar planks, but hate to take the time to soak the planks - this makes the delicious art of grilling on a plank available in an instant! Just remember to leave plank on grill for 3 mins and flip before placing food on it!
This is a recipe I came up with the other evening to satisfy my craving for comfort food. I needed a one-dish meal, as my crock-pot is the only cooking apparatus I have left after kitchen fire. Great for getting your veggies without extra work or dishes (I love to use spinach and mushrooms whenever I can!). Makes fantastic sandwiches next day (also makes yummy meatballs!)
This is the simplest and most delicious recipe I've found for scallops...the flavors of the plank are perfect for the tender scallops, adjust cooking time according to size of your scallops.
Somtimes I also like to place fresh sprigs of herbs on plank under scallops to add a different dimension of flavor.
I hate cauliflower. My cousin had this for dinner one eve, didn't tell me what it was. Now it is a fav! I've forgotten the exact recipe, adjust as needed to your taste. Recipe is quite forgiving. Freezes well!
This is recipe I pried out of chef at a favorite restaurant when he took this off the menu. Now I don't have to specially request! : ) Please note that amounts are approximate as are types of seafood; change to your liking. Don't forget to make garlic bread to sop up the juices!
**Sometimes I also like to sub tarragon for basil, but be sure you like the flavor of tarragon before you do this!
Oh, yum! My version of Trader Joe's. I was down to my last bag of TJ's Lime Pilaf and dreaded the long (2hr) drive for more. Decided to try to recreate, this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy as much as I do! Cook times are approximate, you may need to adjust for your stove/cookware and elevation.
Family recipe handed down. Every time I make this for a gathering, I am asked for the recipe by everyone!! Use only the freshest tomatoes for this, if you can get true "Hanover" tomatoes you'll love this even more! What a way to use all those summer tomatoes, yummm!!! Even better the second day....if there is any left!
I used to make this for a local restaurant...had to stop because the demand had grown to a point I couldn't meet requests! Now, these are given as gifts (with the recipe) to close friends. Feel free to add additional goodies to the pie - I add nuts, flavored chocolate morsels (raspberry a fav!), even white chocolate and/or peanut butter flavored morsels.
I stumbled upon this creation after several failed attempts to curb my chocolate cravings while on weight watchers....This has become a favorite for me as well as for many of my guests...those dieting and those who aren't!
