This is the first gourmet recipe I ever made. The time I ever used hot sauce, ginger root or sesame oil. It is still a favorite. Please don't let the list of ingredients turn you away from this delicious recipe. The recipe is from a magazine ad for Planters Peanut Oil from the '70's. I only use about 2-3 tablespoons Peanut Oil.
This is a recipe from Cooking Light March 2013. It calls for frozen pureed butternut squash, it you can't find it, you can use 4 cups cubed butternut squash, just add extra cooking time. The recipe is delicious and according to Cooking Light only has 302 calories.
Baked spaghetti squash tossed with feta cheese, sautéed onions, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and fresh basil. Found this recipe on another recipe site. Since DH can't eat carbs anymore due to his gastric bypass, this is a healthy substitute.
This is a Sandra Lee recipe that I made for DH who just had gastric bypass surgery. It is creamy and rich.I used fat free half and half and Healthy Request Cream of Celery Soup. Easy to make with superb results, ask DH.
This wonderful recipe calls for 1 bunch of radishes, and according to the produce manager at Whole Foods, a bunch is 1 pound. This recipe is spicy, and full of flavors. The recipe originally called for oil-cured olives, which I am not a big fan of, so I substituted Kalamata olives.
This is similar to a soup that I ate @ a Coney Island Restaurant just outside of Detroit. When I asked the server for the recipe, she just smiled and said "Look in your cupboard". Now I know what she meant. I made the recipe in the microwave on 40% power instead of using the double boiler, but I will post it as found on the Internet. The directions are per Loretta the waitress at the Coney Island.
This is a recipe that I clipped from in 1992 and made for years until I lost the clipping :(. I found it stuffed in a cookbook this morning. It uses condensed milk and apricots and coconut, some of my many favorite treats. I also have used a 6 ounce package of fruit bits instead of the apricots.
This is Melissa McCarthy's recipe from Good Housekeeping Magazine. I tried it because DH is having Bariatric Surgery in May and he has to eat healthy purees post operativelly. He actually likes it, so I thought I would post it. Easy and delicious.
This is another recipe from my late great hero, Mr. Food. I don't care for these cookies either from this recipe or from a bakery, but everyone raves about these cookies when I make them. I usually nuke the frosting for about 15 seconds to make it easier when applying it to the cookies. This is a very common cookie from the Jewish bakeries all over New York's boroughs.
This is a recipe from Streit's Matzo that I frantically search for every Passover. I will finally post it to avoid the yearly panic. I do not use the glaze, but will post it with the recipe. Moist and flavorful and even good on matzo with mustard for a left over sandwich recipe.
Passover recipe from the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent. This will be a permanent part of my Passover food. Easy to make and really good to eat, I tasted these after 1 day of marinating and they were luscious. I even liked the beets. Cook time is marinating time.
This is a Bon Appetit recipe for rich creamy smokey Chorizo and Bean Stew that tastes like something from a Spanish restaurant. Great with crusty bread to sop up the wonderful juices from the bottom of the dish. I used Turkey Chorizo sausage from Whole Foods, but you can use Italian sausage links. Use the smoked paprika if you can, it adds amazing flavor.
