From Epicurious...Though the presentation of this cake— all white-glazed and topped with undulating ribbons of toasted coconut—will take everyone's breath away, we promise that it will only get better from there. (And the cake's rich, coconutty, rum-nipped flavor will never hint that it was a one-bowl effort.)
From Epicurious...Sofrito, a sautéed vegetable mixture that typically contains garlic, onion, and bell pepper, is used as a seasoning in much of Latin America and the Caribbean. Here, it flavors yellow rice. The color comes from annatto seeds—which have an astringent, slightly peppery flavor—heated in oil until bright red-orange.
The tropical relish that tops these chops is a nod to the Caribbean climes and palm-tree breezes that are the stuff Jimmy Buffett songs are practically made of—a veritable paradise in this dish for two. From Epicurious.
Easy to prepare and delicious with readily available ingredients...Shrimp cooked in a tomato and jalapeno sauce and topped with feta cheese. Serve it all on it's own with crusty bread or over pasta or with rice.
From Cooking Light these are tasty and low in calories. Perfect for meatless lunch or light dinner. I found pre-made Tzatziki sauce made by Fage next to the Greek yogurt and used that for a quick fix, but if you want to make your own, the recipe is included for that too.
Yum! I just saw these at the Whole Foods deli case and had to buy some for lunch. Well, so tasty and healthy they were that I had to find a recipe...this is taken from the Chez Us website and sounds just like the version sold at the store.
I had mine on noodles with a little red sauce, but they'd be tasty wherever you enjoy meatballs. They could also be served with a tasty sauce for an appetizer...Enjoy!
I got this recipe from the TV show The Chew, it is from their healthy contributor Daphne Oz. I'd never tried raw kale, but was impressed with the simplicity of this one. Wow, is it wonderful...the secret is massaging the kale to break down it's fiber. Then, oh boy, an easy and nutritious salad is ready to go.
This is a great special occasion roast that is so flavorful and delicious. We stuff it a day ahead and let the flavors absorb into the pork over night, and then simply put it into the oven on the day you are having it. We've also cooked it on a gas grill if oven space is scarce.
This is a great take on the Sloppy Joe Sandwich, trimmed of some calories and with the addition of some tasty veggies. Serve it on hamburger rolls topped with a slice of Provolone for a great and easy meal.
Easy recipe to make in your bread machine...just be sure to use jelly and not jam (the sugar content is too high in jam and will hinder the success of your bread!).
Note cooking time is for the entire cycle on your machine.
Here's a new twist on the traditional chicken salad recipe that will impress even the pickiest of eaters. In this recipe, cinnamon and pistachios are used to healthfully brighten up the dish, while adding fragrance and flavor. Serve this chicken salad as an afternoon snack with whole grain crackers or sliced vegetables; or for lunch atop a bed of mixed greens and whole grain bread. Greek plain yogurt is used instead of mayonnaise to cut the fat and add a bit more protein and flavor to each bite!
