This is a pizza I love to do in the summer, I have lots of fresh basil coming in which means amazing pesto. I also use my 1 lb bread machine to make fresh dough. I usually top it with mushrooms, olives, and sliced roma tomatos. Listed below is the basic cheese version with is great all by itself.
Such a tasty summer treat. This is just the basic recipe for white sangria. You can add what ever fruit you like to give this drink extra fruity flavor. I've tried a great variety, but I always go back to berries (black, blue, raspberry), peach, and plum, as they tend to impart the most flavor. Now don't forget, eating the wine soaked fruit is the best part!
Found this recipe on myrecipes.com, it sounded like a great light summer dish, and with peaches coming in I'm looking forward to trying them in new recipes. I haven't tried this yet, but wanted to make sure I have it in my recipes to try.
If like me arborio rice is unavailable to you, this a tasty risotto look-alike. Also, unlike traditional risotto, it does not require half an hour of constant stirring, and does not include some of the traditional ingredients such as peas.
This version is a little easier than my other published bell pepper recipe. I am constantly adding and subtracting from this recipe, so the next time I find a better version, I will be sure to post it. The amounts of cheese are guess, feel free to adjust to your own taste. Also, I'm not sure if the box of rice is 11 oz, so just get whatever sice is common.
I got this recipe from my mom, and they are just to die for. These are simple to make too, which makes them even better. For those picky family members that don't like mushrooms, try using jalapeno halves and omitting the mushroom stems from filling.
When DF and I were at the end of the month, low on money, and scrounging to make meals, I created this chicken dish, and I thought it turned out really tasty, so I thought I would share. Just as a note, I buy whole chickens to save money, so I often use random chicken pieces for any chicken meal. Feel free to use whatever chicken you have handy, but make sure to adjust the cook time for the thickness of your meat.
This is an easy to throw together chili. I know there are a gazillion chili recipe's out there, but this my family's fave. Usually I just make this for me and my DF, but if you double the recipe its great for the whole family. (note the ounces on the can are guess, just use whatever size can is common at the grocery store)
This is a classic cinnamon roll recipe, I have simply made as many light version substitutions as I could to make this sweet treat a little less calorific, but just as sinful in taste. Its a great Sunday brunch treat, if I do say so myself.
I was reorganizing my recipe's when I came across this recipe that I'd gotten as a freebee in the mail some years ago and never tried. I modified the recipe to suit my tastes, and was pleasantly surprised. If you are in a time crunch, this dish can take two modifications that will greatly reduce preparation time. 1) you can use canned or precooked/chopped chicken and 2) you can use frozen or out of a can biscuits (just make sure they are thawed first)
This recipe comes from a fondue cook book. The fondue is exceedingly simple, as is the sauce, but the result is extravagant and tasty. At the end of the directionsI list a number of tips to make your fondue party a success.
This recipe actually came in the instruction manual of my kitchenaid mixer. I have modified it a little as I have experimented with making biscuits. In the south biscuits are the building blocks of any good breakfast. Once you've made a good biscuit, the options are endless. I usually make these on the weekend. My favorites are sausage gravy over biscuits, bacon or sausage egg and cheese, and jelly/jam biscuits.
This was originally a weight watchers recipe, which i thought was pretty good. I modified it however to make it better (but a little less weight friendly). This is definitely a guy pleaser, so if like me you have meat and potatoes men that you need to feed, this is a relatively easy go to side.
This is a festive drink that is a delight to the senses, from the effervescent quality of the sparkling wine to the tart taste of pomegranate. This recipe came from a cooking club of America newsletter.
