Dinner, you have one job: Fill me up. I may cook you quick, or I may cook gourmet. Either way, I don't want to leave the table hungry. I've got a whole night of hibernation ahead.
Creamy golden mushroom chicken wings are served with a hearty chef salad packed full of good stuff on the side.
This makes a great side dish, but once the kids try it, it will become their main dish. The directions were made simple enough for a ten year old or a real beginner cook wanting to go beyond take-out or boxed dinners. Great for pot luck dinners too.
A bean dish resembling a chili with a sweet brown sugar sauce and bacon.
Based on Indian Rogan Josh (red lamb), this recipe also borrows from Mexican and American culture to create something quite unique, and delicious. very quick and easy, the actual rolling of the wraps is the only semi-difficult part. (See our "How to roll up a wrap" article.)
The mixture of spices produce a dark red roasted chicken that is simply delicious. Turkey comes out well also - just triple the rub ingredients and adjust the cook time for the size turkey you are preparing.
Contrary to popular belief, Wienerschnitzel is NOT German! In fact, the name gives it away: Wiener, the German word for Vienna. It is an Austrian dish, and one that relies on true simplicity to work. This is the recipe as found at Schnitzelwirt in Vienna. It can be made with almost any meat, but below I give instructions for a veal or pork schnitzel.
Asian-influenced preparation of adzuki beans and squash.
A sweet squash dish great for a meal on a cold winter day.
Another of my Super Bowl creations that was a huge hit with all who tried it.
If you have ever been to Nova Scotia you would have seen these sweet & spicy little wraps in every little pizza shop or corner store. This recipe is easy to make and sooo good to eat.
The simplicity of 3 beans with the hint of a little bite. Friend tested and approved.
Spring is right around the corner, this is a great "sit outside and enjoy a nice cold beverage" recipe to celebrate the end of winter.
Something I whipped up one night for the in-laws. It was inspired by, and based loosely, on several other recipes I have seen. Fairly basic but terrifically tasty!
My aunt has been making this recipe since she married my uncle. One day, my mother borrowed the recipe and invited them for dinner. My uncle thought it was the best chili he had ever had and told my aunt she should get the recipe for it to make it later. Suffice to say, my aunt was not pleased - but she still makes it for him.
Easy curry that even a simple boy like me can make. Serve over rice. Enjoy!
This is a recipe that I came up with by combining several general versions. It is a little bit costly but it is well worth it for this irresistible dish. Mushrooms and two types of cheese in a rich creamy sauce makes this melt in your mouth. Everyone loves this version and I haven't seen one like this anywhere.
A spicy but not-too-hot mixture that everyone goes wild for!
I've been trying to perfect the perfect lasagna, for my tastes at least. It's been a long road, and I've played with it and tweaked it quite a bit and now, I love it,all my friends seem to wolf it up. I made the instructions non cook friendly and simple. It's good when it's done, it's better after it's been in the fridge the next day.
Contrary to popular belief, corned beef and cabbage is not traditional Irish fare. But when the Irish came to America, they found that their beloved bacon was rather dear, while corned beef was a cheaper alternative. This dish is a truly beautiful, all Irish, alternative to the corned beef supper. This uses a whole piece of bacon, rather than slices. You may need to special order this from your butchers.
