  1. I'm feeling very overwhelmed. My husband has had a heart episode and we are having to change our diet. My husband lost his father in 2019 to a stroke after having two heart attacks and stents years previous so we are taking my husband's diagnosis serious. I was already on a gluten-free diet because of Celiac Disease but now we have moved to vegetarianism(mostly vegan for husband) with the kids(not forced more like, we won't be making meat in our house but go to Nanas and eat all the meat you want) but I'm still overwhelmed because of the dinner troubles. It feels like we have such a small number of meals my kids will eat and that I can have too. Oh and not feeling like I'm making three meals. Does anyone have suggestions for meal ideas that are vegetarian and gluten-free?
  2. Hello all, I am trying to bring a bit more variety onto the dinner plate (or bowl). Would you please share your favorite recipe for winter squash? Thanks, Debbie
  3. I'm not terribly experienced with cooking chicken, but this is what I've done: Experimental Crock Pot Chicken Recipe Put these ingredients in order into the crockpot. 1 cup of vegetable or chicken broth 1 large chopped onion 6 large carrots, chopped 1 package (frozen! yikes! I hope this works out!) boneless, skinless chicken thighs garlic powder and rosemary sprinkled over everything 1 pint size jar of pear marmalade (someone gave it to us as a gift... I'm thinking any marmalade or jam could work) - spread over chicken thighs Put crockpot on high setting for 1 hour. Turn temp down to low and cook for about 5 hours. Serve with dinner rolls, roasted potatoes, and a green vegetable. What is everyone else having?
  4. Peel and core and slice thinly 10 small apples. I used Gala and Pink Lady varieties. Toss with 2 tsp. lemon juice so they don't brown. Mix: 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour 1/2 cup all purpose flour 1/2 cup rolled oats 1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar 2 tablespoons cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 2 generous pinches ground ginger Cut in and mix thoroughly with your hands: 1 stick of unsalted butter Thoroughly butter a 9 X 13 inch metal baking pan Pour in the apple slices Top with the mixture, covering it completely Bake for 30 minutes at 375, checking to see whether the apples are soft before taking it out This is SO good. Everyone that tried it LOVES it. And it's a great way to use up Fall apples, and not as unhealthy as other good recipes that I have tried. You could probably cut back a bit on the sugar.
  5. How did I not know this existed?! In case others didn't know, here is the link for the Well Trained Kitchen.
  6. I know this sounds sort of crazy, but a friend of mine who raises layers, just gave me 11 dozen eggs. So I am looking for ways to use them, other than the obvious deviled eggs, egg salad, egg bake, French toast...and if your recipe can be frozen, all the better. Thanks.
  7. I think there have been some threads on good summer recipes, but I thought I'd start another one. :lol: Anyone have some good, simple summer recipes to share? (I need easy because I'm not a good cook.) Tonight we had Lime Butter Tilapia with Tropical Pineapple Slaw, served with a Tropical Fruit Tray with Mango Cream Dipping Sauce. :drool5: It was a hit. Easy prep, tasty, & very summery. Copied & pasted my recipes below (along w/ my notes of how I'll modify it next time). FYI, this is for a family of four. We had some slaw & fruit left over, so we'll probably pick up the other ingredients do a repeat tomorrow night to finish off the leftovers. ---------------------------------------- Lime Butter Tilapia with Tropical Pineapple Slaw Modified from Clean Eating, April/May 2014 issue, page 73 Ingredients: ¼ red onion, thinly sliced (soak in cold water for 10+ min. before adding to other ingredients) 4 tilapia filets (original recipe called for 1 lb. cod filets, skin on, in four equal pieces) ½ tsp sea salt (¼ tsp for fish; ¼ tsp for slaw) – next time, need to add more to fish ¼ tsp chipotle chile powder – next time, need to add more to both fish & slaw ¼ tsp ground cumin 2 tsp olive oil (or safflower) 1 small jicama, peeled and cut in to matchsticks ¼ fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut in to matchsticks 1 tsp lime zest (skipped this) 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice (for slaw) 2 tsp fresh lime juice (for fish) 2 tsp organic unsalted butter Recipe: Ahead of time, prepare slaw: In medium bowl combine jicama, pineapple, lime zest, 2 Tbsp lime juice, cilantro, onion, & ¼ tsp salt and 1 pinch chile powder. Toss to combine & then refrigerate. To try next time: -- Definitely add more spices, including trying ginger & cayenne pepper. -- Add some shredded cabbage. -- Add a little bit of mayo &/or sour cream &/or plain yogurt to make it just a wee bit creamy. Season fish with ¼ tsp (or more) each of salt, chile powder, & cumin. Next time: add more spices. In a medium skillet, heat oil on medium. Add fish & cook undisturbed until golden brown (a few minutes). If using cod, cook skin side down. Carefully flip the fish and cook for a couple more minutes. To skillet, add 2 tsp lime juice and 2 tsp butter & cook until the butter melts. With a spoon, baste fish by spooning butter mixture over top. Cook until fish is done. Serve with slaw. An additional side dish is a tropical fruit tray with mango cream dipping sauce. Another possibility might be some type of sweet potato fries. ---------------------------------------- Mango Cream (with Tropical Fruit Tray)Modified from http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/tropical-fruit-with-mango-cream-10000000352529/ Makes 3 cupsIngredients:1 mango, peeled and diced 1/4 cup fresh orange juice 1 tablespoon Kirsch (optional – I left this out) 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 1 Tbsp sugar (I used powdered sugar) 1 cup whipping cream (I used canned ReddiWip :tongue_smilie:) Tropical fruits, sliced (see list in step 3 below) Prep:Process first 4 ingredients in a blender 1 minute or until pureed. Pour puree into a serving bowl; stir in sugar. Beat whipping cream at medium speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. (Do not overbeat.) Fold whipped cream into mango puree, using a knife to swirl into a marbled effect. Since I used ReddiWip, I whisked the puree & cream together until smooth. Serve with a tropical fruit tray: 2 mangoes; 2 nectarines; 3 kiwi; 1 qt. strawberries; 1 pineapple; 1 honeydew melon, &/or other fruits. Drizzle fruit with ¾ cup orange juice, if desired. (I did not drizzle with orange juice.)
  8. It's been a long time since I was here, but since I'm about to ask for crockpot ideas I knew where to go for advice!! But rather than ideas for the whole family, I need help just for me for lunches. You see, I'm working more hours as an art teacher at a school now and for Christmas I got a little 2-qt. crockpot, a small ladle and a matching Corningware mug. They are sooooooo cute, but I haven't come up with any healthy ideas that would be good for me during a work day. I'd love to stay low carb, so that limits a lot already. Can anyone throw out some suggestions? Thanks so much. Blessings, Lucinda
  9. I'm stumped. Anybody have some yummy recipes made with leftover chicken. Nothing in my recipe roundup sounds any good. So hit me with your best leftover chicken dish that uses shredded or chopped chicken!
  10. This year I bought a meal planner and have been planning meals out by the week. We have a HUGE breakfast around 10, another meal later in the afternoon. (the guys eat a late breakfast after ranch chores) We've had roasts, soups, tenderloins, peirogi, chicken this and that, everything sphagetti, veggie pies........... I need recipes. I have plenty of time to cook so if it's drawn out that's okay. We have tons of beef but I'll buy pork or chicken. Post your favorites or someone link me to where (I know) recipe favorites have already been posted!!!
  11. Here are 2 quick and yummy treats (and not that expensive) in case anyone needs some quick holiday goodies! The first one has a couple different names but it's the one with the crackers, boiled sugar and chocolate layers: Saltine Cracker Candy This is an awesome website by a Southern lady named Mary. Everything I've made on here has been delicious! The second one is my family recipe...I didn't invent it but I've made them since I was a little girl. To save money, you can leave out the kisses. Peanut Butter Kisses Peanut Butter Kisses 2 cups peanut butter (18 oz. jar) 1 ¼ c. sugar 2 eggs, beaten 48 (approximately) Hershey Kisses, unwrapped By hand, with a wooden spoon, mix together peanut butter, sugar and eggs until well combined. Roll dough into small balls or use a small cookie scoop. Bake at 350F for 14 – 16 minutes. Tops of cookies will appear dry and crackled. Remove from oven and immediately press on Kiss into the top of each cookie. Let cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Can make without Kisses. Before baking, use fork to make crisscross patterns in cookies. Bake as above. Makes approximately 4 dozen cookies.
  12. I'm having some friends over for dinner and games next week. They are vegetarians and I want to make a really delicious soup that I can put on the stove earlier in the day and forget about it. I'm also going to make some bread to go with it. What are some really fantastic hearty vegetarian soup recipes you've been making lately?
  13. For the first time in my 47 years, I will be preparing Thanksgiving dinner for our family of six. I make a great spaghetti sauce but it is all downhill after that. I am looking for recipes that are easy enough for a lousy cook to manage. Nothing gourmet, please. :) Thank you all!!
  14. I've got chicken in the freezer, potatoes, canned tomatoes, dried and canned beans, corn, etc. Lots of food - I just don't have any inspiration. What's on your menu this week?
  15. I'm trying to put some variety in breakfast. I'd like to start serving pie in place of pancakes or toast, etc. I know it sounds odd, but it can't be worse than a pop-tart IMO. I have a good pumpkin pie recipe, but that's the only one I really know how to make. We are gluten free, so I don't need pie crust recipes - I plan to buy those pre-made. I'd love apple, blueberry and any other type of fruit or light sweetened pie. I don't want anything like chocolate since I wouldn't want that for breakfast. My thoughts are to serve a slice of pie, scrambled eggs and a meat of some sort. Thanks and hope I don't sound too weird. :)
  16. I was at the kitchen supply store yesterday and on a whim bought a tart pan. It has a fluted edge and the bottom pops out. I was sure I was going to find tons of recipes for it but now I'm wondering if it was silly because as far as I can tell the recipes are the same as pies. Are they different things? Do you have a tart recipe you love?
  17. DH built a fire pit in the back yard several days ago. Daily, since then, DD12 has been asking to toast marshmallows. :D So, tonight, we built a small fire, let it burn down to coals, and toasted marshmallows. Yum! Here's my question: Does anyone really like S'mores? We like the toasted marshmallows and we'll eat the chocolate straight, but it isn't better to layer them together on a graham cracker. :bigear:
  18. You're recipes are always so wonderful!!!!!!! from what's for dinner thread I saw you made this... "Tortilla soup and black bean dipped tortillas. Vegan style! " share girl, share :) (again)
  19. My DH has issued a challenge for the remainder of this month. Except for my DD's birthday, we will try to avoid buying any groceries, and just use what we have in the pantry, fridge and freezer. I have a ton of dried beans (black, red, chickpeas), lentils, quinoa, and brown rice. I have some bags of frozen veggies, a few cans of tomatoes, bouillon, and onions. Plenty of almond milk, spices, and olive oil. If we have to, I will get some produce, but I would like to see if I can make it. We do have some zucchini and carrots, and a large salad for the next couple of days. I have some pasta as well. I have a few cans of fruit which I never use and don't know what to do with (no idea where they came from!) and a few other cans I should go identify! Any recipes/ideas so everything I make for the next 10 days doesn't taste exactly the same?
  20. It's hot. I don't have air conditioning. I am NOT turning on the oven, and even using the range really seems to heat things up in here. So I'm looking for more meal ideas that don't require cooking. Sandwiches, salads, fruits....what else?
  21. I am trying to eat a low-carb diet. I am also trying to incorporate more veggies into my diet. Tonight we are having pork tenderloin for dinner. I have some zucchini that I need to use, so that would be a great side dish. Any suggestions on how to prepare it?
  22. Well, I thought this might be a great thread. Let's list healthy recipes so good that they are addictive. I will start it off: Corn and black bean salsa or salad 1 can white shoe peg corn (rinsed) 1 bunch green onions 4 oz feta cheese 2 tsp garlic salt 1 can black beans (rinsed) 1/4 c sugar (or substitute) 1/4 c olive oil 1/4 c apple cider vinegar Mix everything together except the corn, green onions and cheese. Once the dressing is mixed well, add the rest of the stuff. it does taste better the longer it sits.
  23. Somebody gave me two dozen "home grown" fresh eggs. We're not an egg eating family. That's not to say we don't like eggs; we're just not in the habit of using them. What do I do with them? I need ideas that use up a lot of eggs pretty quickly. (I have a small family with small appetites.) Thanks in advance!!
  24. I love salad, and this one is great to take to a potluck, as it travels very well. Bean, Corn and Jicama Salad 2 cups cooked black beans (rinse if from the can) 2 cups cubed jicama 1 cup cooked corn kernals to this add diced red bell pepper and slivers of red onion (if you soak them in water a few minutes and rinse and pat dry, they will be milder) generously. mix olive oil, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper to taste, a teas of lemon or lime zest, and 1/2 teas+ ground cumin (to make this extra delicious, dry toast the cumin seeds in a dry skillet until brown and crush easily with the back of a spoon) and toss the above with this dressing. Sprinkle a good coating of roughly chopped cilantro leaves on top. I like to add a little Aleppo pepper to the dressing. I also like to do 1/2 ACVin and 1/2 lime juice. If you serve a nice big bowl of this with a quesadilla, you have a quick dinner.
  25. I love, love, love cooking new foods, especially Asian foods. I made Vietnamese Beef Pho last night and it was a huge hit with my family. I have a variety of grocery stores near me and can pretty much get my hands on whatever ingredients that I need. So please share your favorite ethnic recipes with me. (They don't have to be Asian:))
