This is a quick and easy and appeals to adults and kids alike. Our daughter, Nellie, introduced us to this easy meal this summer while visiting us in our RV. We like spicy foods, so I use Herdez Brand Salsa (in the 7 oz. can), but feel free to substitute Mild. If you've never tried Herdez, it's available at most Walmarts nation wide.
This is a dish from Maa Dagdevien, the "go to guy" for Turksih barbeque. The aleppo pepper can be substitued with 2 tsp. dried red pepper and 2 tsp. paprika. Note: If using red pepper; place red peppers & paprika, in a small bowl,combine with 2 T. warm water and let stand 5 minutes mix into a paste.
Delicious over mixed greens. Add cucumbers and radishes if you like. I found the dressing to be a bit runny, so make sure your tahini is rich and full, if not, don't add as much water. Either way, the taste is yummy and not your ordinary dressing. As chef blucoat chef #225426 so eloquently pointed out, this recipe comes from Gourmet 2002. I had written it down on a deposit slip and failed to note where it came from. Thanks Blucoat.
Brussels Sprouts sometimes get a bum wrap. If cooked correctly they have a lovely nutty flavor; Undercooking can make them bitter, overcooking makes them mushy. Roasting is a simple way to prepare them and gives them a nice crispy texture.
This recipes combines inexpensive bottled BBQ sauce with raspberry preserves and spices. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less peppers and adding honey if you like. It's pretty spicy, but mellows as it grills. We use it on baby back ribs, but I imagine chicken or other grilled meats would be good too.
Green olives and ricotta cheese make boring chicken stand up and shout, Delish! This is quick to make and you can sub, rotisere chicken (about 2 cups) for the chicken breast if you're in a rush. It comes for BHG with a BakinBaby punch.
