My daughter is allergic to peanuts which means normally no ants on a log. While strolling down the aisles of the grocery store I found Biscoff spread which is soy based. I knew the name since the cookies they make are soooooo delicious! (especially with Tea). I decided to try it. It takes this wonderful creation of celery and raisins and takes it to the dessert level. I highly suggest it.
I love eggs Benedict. I was so excited when we went to Brennans in New Orleans for dinner a few years back, lots of choices. Now, I have not tried to make it myself because I don't want to try to make the sauce. The other day I was walking through Trader Joes and the solution was right there.
But it gets better. They also have the Canadian bacon. So I broke out my ramekins to make the eggs in the oven (yeah my expensive stove was broken) so I baked the eggs in the toaster oven at 350, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make sure you coat the inside of the ramekin with butter for it to slide right out.
Have you ever had a night where you completely forgot about a starch and just don't want another one of those instant rice pouches (I work, it is all about the convenience). I found that the can potatoes can be spiced up and turn out rather well. They cook quicker since they just really need to warmed up. You can also pan fry them in oil (but that adds too much bad for me most nights). So instead I toss them in a bowl with some other items (in this case garlic, dill and onion). I also spritzed them with a little olive oil (on a side note, if you don't own one I strongly suggest getting a mister - great to add the oil you need to cook but only a little to cut down on the fat). I place them in a oven at 350 for 15 minutes. If you want them toasty try broiling them, but keep a eye on them or you will have burnt pucks instead! Enjoy!
3 stars (maybe even 2.5, but possible to make it 4.5)
Summer time, and my garden has eggplants. But what to do with them. No more eggplant parmesan, we recently had that. So I looked online and found this recipe. It looked very good and the reviews were great. In the end it was a little dry. My suggesting should you try this is to add a container of diced tomatoes or tomato sauce to counter act it. If you like eggplant, you should like this. To make this veggiefied, you can remove the ground beef, and instead add more sauteed veggies like peppers.
