A great pea soup requires the correct texture.If to much liquid is added the soup will be watery, and if too little is used, the soup is thick and gloppy. The sherry, broth and water plus blending 2 cups of the soup makes for the perfect texture while the bacon adds the subtle smokiness. Found this recipe in Cuisine at Home
This is a fast and easy way to prepare pork tenderloin. You can use apricot jam in place of the marmalade. I saw this recipe being cooked on a morning TV show about 5 years ago. I believe it is from the Pantry Raid cookbook. I like to serve this with Balsamic-Orange Couscous.
This is one of our favourite ways to eat pork tenderloin as it is so easy to make, elegant enough for company and delicious. I omit the orange zest as the kids don't care for it. You could also substitute apricot jam for peach and omit the diced dried apricots. I cook mine on the gas barbeque by heating it up to desired temperature, turning one side off and placing the tenderloins on the side that was turned off. I tend to make extra glaze as I pour about 1/2 of it on the tenderloins before cooking. This recipe came from Rose Reisman's Secret for Permanent Weight Loss Cookbook.
Add this rub to a crown roast of pork for added flavour and stuff the roast with Caramelized Pear and Sage Stuffing. If you are serving this to dinner guests, garnish the bone tips with paper frills just before slicing the meat. Prep time includes making rub and gravy. Found this in the Food and Style Magazine
You do not need an oven for this dessert as it has an airy mousse like filling. It will take approximately 2 hours to set. You will want to use the soft ladyfingers cookies not the hard ones otherwise you will have difficulty cutting it. It calls for 1 tsp icing sugar but you can easily use 2 teaspoons. I found this recipe in the Food and Style Magazine.
The combination of these ingredients is fantastic. The candied pecans give a nice little crunch to the salad. Add some seafood or grilled chicken and you have a full meal. To save time buy the prepackaged washed baby spinach. This recipe came from Rose Reisman's "Secrets for Permanent Weight Loss" cookbook.
A friend brought these to a party and they were gone in no time. I had to hold back from eating the whole tray. 5 min of the sitting time is included in the cook time. You can use button mushrooms or a variety, it's up to you. Depending on how you purchase your cheese (in prepackaged slices) the number of slices you require may vary. I have also made these by adding a little extra butter, but be careful as they can tend to be oily.
This soup is nice thick and creamy soup for a cold day. The bacon, garlic and shallots add a nice light flavour. Nothing overpowering. This soup is very filling. Use 1% milk to cut down on the calories. I served this with a salad.
We love greek salad in our house so by adding grilled chicken you now have a meal. Serve oregano breadsticks on the side. To save time buy packaged, prewashed romaine lettuce. This main dish salad is from Cooking Light.
I love sugar snap peas and the crisp veggies in this salad. The sweetness of the ginger soy dressing adds a nice compliment. This is one of DH's favourite salads. Cook time is allowing for dressing to cool.
Found this in one of my favourite magazine's "Cooking light".
Quick, easy and elegant. Use fat-free cream cheese to avoid the extra calories. I use an apple slicer to help speed the time up. This recipe has been a hit with everyone including kids (if they like nuts). I love the combination of cream cheese and apples. I have made this dessert so many times, but keep misplacing it, so thought I had better post it. I found this in a Cooking Light magazine.
This is similar to an upside cake. Not only does it look great but taste great. I am posting the recipe as it appeared in the Style at Home magazine, but 1 cup of raspberry juice was to much for my cake pan. I only used 2/3 cup. I also placed a sheet of foil under the cake pan to catch any raspberry juice that might spill over. I am glad I did. The recipe originated from a restaurant in Quebec City. Serve this with vanilla ice cream.
