This recipe comes from the April edition of Woman's Day magazine and was in their Eat Well For Less section. It's actually meant to be a meatless main dish with a serving being a whole potato, though I served it as a side dish with each person getting just half a potato.
I used to be very afraid of branching out from existing recipes and creating my own, but now I've learned that being creative in the kitchen is the best part about cooking. Most recipes don't have to be followed exactly, including this one.
This is one of our favorite muffins. They make a great healthy start to the day. Don't grind the millet too fine, you want a bit of texture to the muffins. You can also try substituting quinoa for half of the millet, just make sure to rinse the quinoa well first. I've also tried using all quinoa but found the flavor a bit too strong. This recipe comes from Cooking Light.
This recipe is my own creation, hearty and rustic, my favorite kind of meal. My husband and I think it's quite tasty! Try to use a good quality smoked sausage since the stew gets most of its flavor from it.
This is a very old recipe. I've read that butter rolls may have originally come about as a way for Southern cooks to use up biscuit dough scraps. Whatever the history behind this old-timey treat, it's one of my favorite comfort foods. Try adding finely chopped apple to the filling.
I can't remember where I got this recipe from, but it's one of my favorites. It's a very fresh tasting salad and very good for you! I like to let it chill for at least a few hours to let the flavors develop. Feel free to substitute your favorite beans for the ones listed.
This is a recipe I created quite a while back when I just started throwing things in the pot that I thought would go well together, and happily, they did! This is certainly a flexible recipe and doesn't have to be followed exactly to still end up with a yummy soup.
I love vegetarian meals, but my husband is just the opposite, so I like when I find a vegetarian meal that's hearty enough to please even my husband. This one fits the bill! I got this recipe from Cooking Light and changed it a little to suit our own tastes.
I can't fully claim this recipe as my own since I found the original on Allrecipes. I did tweak it just a little based on my own preferences and what ingredients I had on hand. My husband, who I fear is going to turn into a bottle of Ranch dressing, loves this dressing almost as much. I use a microplane to grate the shallot and garlic, that way the dressing is nice and creamy without the need for a blender or food processor.
I searched but didn't see another recipe exactly like this one posted, so I hope I'm not posting a repeat! You'll never go back to canned soup tuna noodle casserole after trying this, at least I certainly haven't. This is from Better Homes and Gardens.
I've had this recipe so long that I can't even remember where I first got it from. I rarely make it any longer now that I've moved to Canada, and its so hard to find summer squash here. It's a great simple stir fry.
One of my favorite meals as a child was when my mother would cook a big pot of lima beans with ham, and we would eat it over rice with cornbread. She used a pressure cooker, but I prefer the slow cooker, and I've tweaked the ingredients just a bit from how she would make it. Great for when you're in the mood for some good down-home comfort food :)
