Maybe you come from an Italian family and broccoli rabe (pronounced “rob,” and also called rapini) is a household name for you. Perhaps you live near a deli that makes the best roast pork, provolone and broccoli rabe sandwich, only you never realized you could make a mean batch yourself at home. Most likely you’ve at least heard of this vegetable—so let’s take it from there.
I’m usually pretty wary of the word “creamy” when it comes to food. More often than not, it signals a splurge-worthy dessert or pasta dish typically reserved for the no-no list. So I wondered: Is it possible to create a yummy, creamy chicken dinner that’s low-cal and low-fat to boot?
Happy Father’s Day! I sent my husband golfing with his buddies and baby girl is sleeping – so here I am! Okay, you know I talk about plating – what goes with what is a big deal to me and I think the ability to pair well can be learned. With the flank steak tacos from last weekend, I found myself stumped for sides – I had some learnin’ to do.
When faced with a dessert buffet, I often find myself coming back to the rice krispie treats. They’re just so chewy and reliable. Even a bad rice krispie treat is still really good. I’ve made these fancy ones and then later made these decadent peanut butter ones. These faux “Quaker Oat Bars” were akin to this new recipe, but not quite. When I’m sharing with you today takes the cake when it comes to the health factor. I mean, seriously, when’s the last time I actually put the word “healthy” in a title?
Grilling. Grills. Are you a grill person? Do you and your significant other come up with cool marinades and sauces? Experiment with various cuts of meat and add things like wood chips and cedar planks? That’s nice for you. We don’t do so much grilling in my house. My husband, bless his heart, hasn’t quite gotten bit by the grilling bug. I for some reason think that grilling is a man’s job, so I haven’t looked into it too much either. Our grill sits neglected most of the time. Tear.
Alternate title: So Easy a Middle Schooler Could Make Them. Seriously. My middle school students make this exact recipe. Now, there are plenty of simple recipes that my middle schoolers make that I wouldn’t deem bloggable, but this is not one. These pretzels have a crisp exterior with a chewy center; the flavor has just a hint of sweetness which offsets the salt so well. I considered playing with additions but then I thought, why mess with perfection?
Pie is the best. It’s one of my favorite things to make and though I started in my mom’s kitchen with apple and pumpkin, I’ve come to enjoy all kinds. Truly, when it comes to pie I don’t discriminate. This was my first experience making a coconut cream pie and only the second one I’ve ever eaten. Definitely vintage but comeback-worthy to say the least.
