This is my favorite salad. I love the crunch of the cabbage, the sweetness of the peas, and the smoothness of the avocado. It is accented beautifully by the gentle acidity of the cider vinegar. The magnificent colors make for a lovely presentation when entertaining guests. I love to serve it with savory meat dishes—the vinegar compliments them very well.
These light and healthy Thai Chicken Wraps are an easy and refreshing entrée and a simple “one pot meal” to boot. I often make them with leftover chicken, though I sometimes use leftover fish—any type of protein will do.
I found a recipe here on Tasty Kitchen for a red velvet shortbread cookie and it looked fabulous. But it wasn’t safe for my son’s allergies. So I took that recipe, allergenized it, and the following is what I got. And it turned out really well and looks just as festive as the original.
One of my favorite foods is soup. However, it’s hard to find soups that are vegetarian because a lot of soups that claim to be are still made with chicken stock or broth.
Fear not! This soup is ridiculously easy to make and can be altered to have meat in it should you choose to serve it that way. The original meat soup comes from Rachel Ray, but this vegetarian concoction is something I threw together one night. Enjoy!
I’m slightly addicted to these Vanilla Roasted Walnuts and so is my husband. They have a hint of sweetness and a nice burst of vanilla goodness. On top of that, walnuts are a great source of Omega 3s, have a high antioxidant count, and are also beneficial for cardiovascular health. So I’m on the walnut bandwagon.
I recently posted a round-up of some of my favorite Christmas recipes. We’ve been going wild with the Star Cookies lately, pulling out all of our cookie cutters and making them in every possible shape, then frosting them with the Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting. The boys (and I) are having a blast.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
