There are many perks working at the local extension office and one of them for sure is the food. One of my favorite recipes is for this delicious whole wheat bread. It is soft and light (just like white bread) and is fast to make compared to some yeast breads due to the instant yeast. Great recipe to get those kids to love whole wheat bread.
I had posted a previous version of this recipe (#326380) but we have since added some additional ingredients to make it even better- an egg, some powdered milk and lecithin. Lecithin is easily found in any health food store- really helps with that soft texture I am talking about.
A Chinese version of scrambled eggs and ketchup. I was totally intrigued by this recipe because of the ingredients. I was not let down! So love this! I wish I could give credit where credit is due, but I am notorious for copying recipes and forgetting to write down where it came from. It says 2 servings, but to me, it's more like 1- just for me!
"Oh yeah, this is it!" - are the words my husband declared when he tried this recipe for red beans and rice. He was craving New Orleans-style red beans and rice and I had never made it before- so this is the recipe I searched for and tried and it was delicious!! The kids thought it was great too. I only made a few small changes to Emeril's, like adding more sausage than the recipe called for and letting a smoked ham hock cook with the beans for the first two hours..other than that everything is the same. This is not a quick meal, but great for a lazy day at home.
From Cooks Illustrated "The Best Make Ahead Recipe". The idea being that you don't end up with macaroni salad that dries out. We liked this recipe, it was very creamy and a bit tangy- good! My new favorite. I will probably try some lower fat ingredients next time to lighten it up a bit.
A great coffee cake that does not require any special ingredients you would have to run to the store for-every ingredient should be a pantry staple. This coffee cake is easy to make, plus moist and rich with with a simple cinnamon topping.
I did it! I finally found the recipe for the absolute best breadsticks. This recipe makes big, beautiful breadsticks and lots of them too. I experimented with the original recipe and made several adjustments and made many variations as well. The recipe can easily be halved, but you might as well make them all and freeze what you don't use (we never have to do this though, they all get gobbled up).
Hopping John eaten on New Years Day is suppose to bring you good luck for the New year. My mother always made it, so I make it. Also eating cabbage on New Years Day is suppose to bring you lots of money. Well I am not sure about all that, but it has become our annual tradition at our house.
I made these tasty Ham Steaks for New Years Day along with Hoppin' John and sauteed cabbage. Easy, fast and good! For the ham,I could not find the regular large ham steak so I used two 22 oz. packages of Hillshire Farms Brown Sugar Ham Steaks, each package had 4 thick slices of bone in ham and this worked perfectly for our family. I also doubled the amount for the glaze to accomadate the additional ham.
These cookies are Fantastic! Crushed lemon drop candies just make these cookies burst with flavor. This recipe makes quite a bit of cookies and half were inhaled by my family by the end of the day. The recipe orginated by a lady named Ann Orton who was trying to duplicate a recipe that she had had at a restaurant in Salt Lake City. I have no idea what the originals tasted like, but these cookies would be hard to beat.
I wanted to try something different fot Thanksgiving this year and this recipe was a winner! The turkey breast was moist and the flavor was incredible and it make a really good gravy! Oh my. My 7lb. turkey breast was done in 2 hours and 15 minutes. I got this recipe from foodnetwork.com
