Haluski is a pan fried dish that both of my grandmothers used to make of butter, onion, cabbage and noodles. It makes a delicious main or side dish, whatever you're in the mood for. I personally like to let my cabbage get a little brown, but adjust your cooktime as necessary to your preference. The serving sizes will depend on how you are serving it.
These flavorful meatballs are cooked with a spicy tomato cream sauce. It has a fairly nice kick to it without being over-spicy. Delicious served over rice. Would go well with a nice green veggie on the side! Reminds me of Swedish Meatballs, only better!
Mushroom risotto is one of my favorite dishes. The addtion of the cashews gives this just a slight crunch and really compliments the flavor. Don't let the thought of making risotto scare you, it does take a little time and attention, but it really is easy and not all THAT time consuming. It's a great accompaniment to an oven baked main dish, so that you don't have to worry about other stove top dishes.
This lamb is fabulous! Dont let the amount of garlic scare you away...it cooks up very nicely. I made this lamb last week and roasted perfectly, it was absolutely fantastic. I adapted this recipe slightly from a cookbook called "Mediterranean, The Beautiful Cookbook". Delicious!
The recipe title says it all, simple, yet elegant. Wonderful green beans using walnuts, goat cheese and balsamic vinegar. Simple company dish or great for those of us who like to eat as if we were having company! Reduces easily.
A different side dish to go with your Asian meal. These potatoes are spiced with wasabi horseradish. And yes, you will definitely be able to taste it, so you may want to add the wasabi little by little to your taste.
Old Bay with ribs you say? YES! Old Bay seasoning is not just for seafood. This recipe includes a great rub using Old Bay Seasoning. Easy to prepare and fast, especially if you boil the ribs in advance. Barbecue time is only 20 minutes! GASP!-Yes I said boil. I know many say boiling boils out all the flavor, but these ribs are as tasty as can be. Cook time does not include standing time of 20 minutes to 24 hours. These can be finished either on the grill or in the oven.
This is my perfect basic recipe for twice baked potatoes. These potatoes are great to make ahead of time. Just refrigerate or freeze until you need them, and reheat in the oven. I prefer sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use whatever you like, but it will change the taste of the recipe. Cook time includes baking the potatoes. Bake a few extra potatoes for extra filling if you like.
Easy crispy chicken with a simple raspberry sauce. You could also do this with boneless breasts if you like, but thighs are so much more flavorful and give the dish that extra boost. Adjust the cook time to about 25 minutes if using boneless breasts. This recipe was a contest entry for RSC #11.
Mashed sweet potatoes, slightly spiced, pan fried and served with curried sour cream. These would make a lovely side dish or served as an appetizer. This recipe is an entry for Ready, Set, Cook contest #8.
