Healthy yet somehow indulgent and addictive. I mean, vegetable indulgent, not chocolate cake indulgent.
There aren’t many things better than a grilled cheese sandwich. I think it was the first thing I perfected in the kitchen. I was about ten, armed with seeded rye bread and cooper sharp cheese – heaven. The white bread and kraft singles version is pretty ridiculous as well, though completely devoid of real food. Gourmet grilled cheeses have been popular for a while and usually involve a bunch of ingredients you don’t have on hand. Not this one. All the ingredients used should become staples in your fridge because they’re amazing for you.
I’ve been on the health train lately, at least in terms of what I’ve posted here. Next stop, Fatty McFatterson. But so worth it… so, so worth it.
Cooking light made an apple cake recipe years and years ago. A neighbor saved it, my mom got it from her, I got it from my mom. Sometimes Cooking Light things taste a bit, well, light. And other times they have ingredients that NO one has on hand, like oyster sauce. Gross.
A really, really, really simple side dish, but the kind of thing that I always save for last on my plate and the leftovers never make it to the Tupperware. Maybe this concept of potato cooking is old news to you, but if not, then make this tonite and you’ll never regret it.
My mom didn’t do a lot of casseroles growing up but she DID make a mean mac and cheese and a tuna noodle casserole. I LOVed the tuna.. all the cheesy noodley goodness. Turns out casseroles aren’t so good for you; there is almost always a cream sauce and lots of cheese, not to mention starchy pasta and sometimes questionable meat. But on a cold night, it sure feels good to dig into a bowl of creamy cheesy deliciousness.
There are three proven factors or commonalities among people who are obese. 1, excessive TV watching. 2, eating fast food at least once a week. 3, skipping breakfast. True story.
Does this look like chicken to you? It does to me. It’s not chicken, it’s a heavenly early fall dessert that made me swoon when I ate it.
A friend dropped off cookies the other day (which were delicious), and she mentioned that she checked this site to make the chocolate chips that I probably had on here, but was surprised to find there wasn’t a recipe to be found!
Back to school! Today is the first day for a lot of students and a terribly gross rainy day, at that. I remember a staple in my lunch box for years was the Quaker Toasted Oats Chewy Bars, always in chocolate peanut butter flavor. I’m sure you’re familiar.
