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.
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.
A sweet squash dish great for a meal on a cold winter day.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mini meatloaves wrapped in bacon and stuffed with Velveeta cheese.
A delicious casserole of rice and chow mein vegetables that is one of my favorites.
This is a filling and tasty dish that can either serve as a unique starchy side or, along with a vegetable dish, a good vegetarian meal.
A great alternative to a standard rice accompaniment.
Belgian endive is wrapped in a slice of ham, then covered with a Bechamel sauce and baked in the oven. The recipe was a favorite of mine when I was living in Austria and finally got hold of the endive my father used to grow in his garden in Belgium. This is one of the various recipes with endive I've experimented with. Add some fine bread crumbs if desired.
This chicken is great with spiced apples, mashed potatoes and gravy.
This gluten-free chicken recipe has a nice modern twist, with curry powder and lots of black pepper.
Wonderful casserole with broccoli, cauliflower and cheese that will even get the children eating their vegetables. Add leftover ham or turkey to casserole for a nice change. You may also use a Frozen California Vegetable mix (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots).
Wonderful, custard-type pie, that needs no crust.
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
My kids just love this casserole and when they come home I have to promise to fix it for them.
Yummy recipe, very good and easy to make. You may adjust the amount of cheese to your liking.
A super-easy recipe that is kid-friendly and super tasty. We make ours with drums and thighs to save money too!
