Halibut is probably my favorite fish and the steaks hold up to grilling well and are a fast meal anytime. This recipe is a combination of lots of recipe browsing and mostly what makes my family happy- that is the real goal now, isn't it? Prep time includes marinade time.
I developed this way to freeze corn when other methods came out watery, mushy or tasteless. The butter puts a seal around the kernels the lets it keep crunch and the flavor in. I do about 2-3 batches per year and it keeps me through to next season. Number of ears will vary depending on size.
This dish was inspired by Giada. I grew up in a Polish neighborhood, but never was taught the trade (but ate at anybody's house that served them, LOL). This simple shortcut version provides all of the taste and charm of the dish. It makes 2 batches, one for now and one to freeze.
This dish is a way to use leftover turkey but still get that deep flavor that comes from using fresh poultry. Easy, ecconomical and a great was to kick up holiday leftovers, my family begs for it!
This is a "not so traditional" made up recipe.
These little toasts are perfect for pate, spreads or for when you are out of crackers. Basic and elegant entertaining. Dress it up using different bread types. Add various spices that will compliment the food you are serving these with. This recipe is also a great way to use up stale bread and also makes a great snack in place of chips. The cooling racks allow the toast to cook evenly.
A great way to use up the leftover hamburgers from a previous dinner or to make from scratch. These are quick and easy and great served with fry sauce or ketchup and mustard. The mushroom and onions are usually part of my leftovers too. I even find myself making extra at one night's dinner to have these another night.
This is a great comfort food. I do not like to cook with canned soups and prefer my stroganoff with no tomato sauce or ketsup. We joke about cup-a-cup-a-cup like in Steel magnolias, because all the measurements are in cups. Perfect for a quick week night meal or for company
Only 7 ingredients, no tomatoes, no soup mixes, just a crock pot. I put the meat in before work, add the veggies when I get home and have a great meal quick. I often peel the taters and put them in the fridge covered with water until its time to throw them in, cuts after work prep time.
A south beach friendly way to use any extra your garden is giving, try to pick them when they are less than 3 inches in diameter. Use lo-fat sour cream for phase one, but it tastes good no diet at all!
I bought some rosemary oil and loved it, but wanted to make it more cost effectively at home. Found this recipe by Giada De Laurentiis on Foodtv.com. It is delicious on roasted or grilled veggies and in salad dressings.
