Found this on the Real Simple website, but have not had the chance to try it. I have been hoarding rice pudding recipes in hopes of finding that *perfect* one, and this one stood out as unique. I think this could be made vegan if you used soy ice cream or another variant. I'll be using full-fat version Bryers Vanilla Bean when I try it out....Enjoy!
This recipe was posted elsewhere by Celia Yasner, of Atlanta, GA. She says "This recipe was my grandmother Isabel's. It's greatly influenced by the depression when Velveeta first appeared in the markets. She used to serve this during the holidays with a sweet and sour brisket!"
Yummy way to enjoy a fresh smoothie anytime. You can create an endless variety of combinations, use your imagination! Cooking time is chill time. If you use plain yogurt, add the sweetener of your choice. I like them with honey.
I haven't tried this, I found it VERY randomly while trying to type an English draft due the NEXT day. I think I like this site too much!! Anyway it's from an old edition of the Cincinnati Post online (12/18/02), in an article about holiday food. It sounds AMAZING, and I have trouble finding yummy stuffing recipes that don't have fruit in them (can't stand the sweet/savory combo). Anyway here it is so I don't lose it, maybe someone will review it before the next holiday season when I'm likely to get to it!
Why make it in the crockpot when the stove-top version tastes great with so little effort? This is very rich, a recipe that makes people ask what's cooking! With the smells of bacon, herbs, and simmering vegetables in your kitchen, everyone will enjoy this comfort food at it's best. The sour cream, chives, and hot sauce garnish take plain pea soup to a more elegant level, too.
This is easy (and considerably healthy) Tex-Mex heaven. Good plain (that's how I eat it) or over spanish rice. The vegetables retain their crunch and don't lose nutrients this way, because there's no water involved and they steam just a little in their own liquid.
This is a simple recipe idea I came up with, being a single mom-to-be, a college student, and a member of the full-time workforce. It makes a BIG (for one person), delicious pot of versatile food, and it's so economical. Make sure to use WHITE pepper, it makes all the difference in flavor. Not in the recipe as I posted it, but strain the drippings to make a knock-out gravy!
I LOVE THIS. Okay, I thought this up a few nights ago when I wanted a banana smoothie but didn't have any milk in the fridge. I used regular (not low fat) egg nog from the store since it's what I had, but I'm sure the light kind would be just as good. I know fruit smoothies are usually a little healthier than this, but I think its perfect for brunch during the holidays! (Tip: Peel and break the bananas up before freezing them) Also, the store bought variety of egg nog keeps you from having to spice it yourself.
Kids are hard to cook for, but over the summer I cooked for friends' children quite a bit. They love this - every time, to me there really seems to be something with kids and garlic! Anyway, it's fast, and not too expensive to make.
