Don’t be shocked by the secret ingredient in the crust.  It adds a special taste to the dish while losing it’s potency while baking.

Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Submitted by:  Crystal Sykes

I have three “beefs” with store bought salad dressing, I have listed them below in order of importance.  (My importance, anyway)

  1. The bottled ranch DOES NOT taste the same as the ranch you get at restaurants.  If I wanted vinegar in my ranch, I would add it.  It turns out I do not.
  2. They are FILLED with sugar and preservatives.
  3. They have a TON of calories.

So why not make your own salad dressing with less calories, sugar and preservatives?  This recipe is super easy.  You basically throw all the ingredients in a blender and go to town.  It also turns out that I do like vinegar in my vinaigrettes.

I am always looking for new ways to use a pork tenderloin.  It is a tender piece of meat that marries well with so many different flavors.  This time I chose to use fennel which is a vegetable I was always curious about.

Deviled eggs have proved to be a great side dish at any gathering.  Bring a plate next time and see how fast they disappear!

Tip:  For the best peeling results use eggs that are a week or two old.

Fake Chicken and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

fake chicken stirfry

 

Submitted by:  Veronica Gantley

Monkey girl last week decided she wanted to be a vegetarian   She watched this documentary called Food Inc. So we bought some vegetarian items from the grocery store.  This lasted maybe a week. As we are going into Target the smell of chick-fil-a waifs past us. Monkey Girl decides she wants some chicken nuggets. So that went her week of vegetarianism. So what to do with the supposed to taste like chicken soy protein? I made it into a stir fry with snap peas.

The night I made this, Monkey girl was spending the night over a friends house so the Hubster and I enjoyed this.  We decided it was a keeper and we would definitely enjoy this again.  Although I adore snow peas, I think this would be great with other vegetables. I think next time I will make it with maybe broccoli. I also thought about making a fake chicken cashew dish. The possibilities are endless.

Slow Cooker Curry Chicken

P1010984

Thai curry is definitely a go to flavor when at the restaurant, but it is always too spicy for the kids.  By making this version at home I can adjust the heat to suit their taste.  Also, by using the slow cooker our dinner is ready after a busy day running them around.
