I wanted to incorporate lemon and honey into an original cornbread recipe, and I had to add greek yogurt and cheddar cheese because...don't ask questions...just because. I used a light olive oil, but any vegetable oil is good.
Hot weather is upon us and I don't like to spend too much time in the kitchen heating it up. I like to eat simpler and fresher, so tasty, main-course salads are the ticket! This salad makes me feel so good eating it, bringing balance to my appetite and my health, hence the name.
I wanted to make something that would tantalize our taste-buds but still be healthy, fresh-tasting and colorful. This recipe delivers in every department. The kids loved assembling their own oriental-style chicken-lettuce 'tacos' at the table, loading them with the toppings of their choosing, drizzling with the yummy sauce, sprinkling on nuts and then eating everything up! I guess I should have made twice as much.
The 'twist' being the addition of lime juice which adds a really fresh taste to an unbeatable ice cream combination. Use your favorite liquid honey, but Orange Blossom was really good in the version I made. This ice cream is very easy as you don't have to make a cooked custard as is traditional - and it's egg-free!
This is not your average rice pudding. There's a fragrant, almost floral, waft of scent and flavor that is imparted to the creamy rice mixture by the ginger, lime and honey. The toasted coconut and rum are the kickers, though, making it over-the-top good!
Have you seen the ingredients list on the back of commercially-produced BBQ sauce? High-fructose corn syrup seems to be in each and every one, and many of the other ingredients would need a chemical engineer to figure out. Solution? Make your own!!! We loved this homemade sauce slathered on chicken parts and ribs that we baked in the oven. Generously brush on the sauce for the last few minutes of baking to get it caramelized and serve more at table-side.
A home-baked goody that is scrumptious served with a fresh pot of tea or coffee for a leisurely weekend breakfast. Come to think of it, these scones are so quick and easy to put together that they could be part of a 'special' breakfast any day of the week. You decide.
It’s summer and it’s hot. What I want…what I crave…is to eat something delicious, refreshing and healthy, and that’s how this brown rice tabbouleh was born. It’s the perfect salad to have with grilled anything, or to bring to a potluck. And you know you’re being good to yourself in every way possible.
A dish I heartily enjoyed recently in Tuscany. This is me experimenting at making it - no claims to authenticity - it is toothsomely tasty, though. It can be on your table in practically no time at all and is dead-simple to make. I have also made this using left-over, cooked salmon, and it is still very good indeed, although missing the smokiness of the original recipe.
Wondering what to make for Mother's Day that's comforting, delicious, and good to eat at any time of day? This version of the classic Biscuits and Gravy is kicked up a notch with the addition of portabella mushrooms and swiss cheese.
