A sunny-side-up fried or soft-poached egg placed on some sort of vegetable or greens gives you the makings of a contemporary gourmet dish. The point of it all ~ the soft, runny yolk adds a creamy, decadent, dressing component.
Today I want to share my elder son’s delicious, creamy method for scrambling eggs … Mitchell says this is not a dish for anyone in a hurry. It requires patience and constant tending. (But, believe me, it’s worth the effort and the wait!)
Classically, ragù is made by slowly cooking meat in broth, tomato paste, wine, and aromatic vegetables until everything melds into chunky, saucy deliciousness … In my version, the tomatoes and their beautiful juices mix with the pan juice from the chicken to create the broth.
Braising is one of my favorite ways to prepare meat and I found the Pico de Gallo to be such a flavorful way to do it!
It’s tomato season! Technically a fruit, not a vegetable, the tomato has great nutritional value with lots of Vitamins A and C and provide a good source of lycopene, which supports heart and bone health. Delicious and nutritious – the best of both worlds!
I am never more pleased and satisfied than when I make a great meal for the people I love … except when I make a great meal WITH the people I love.
I love kale. Normally I use it finely chopped in a salad or sautéed with garlic and onions, or thrown into a soup. All good! But, freshly made kale chips. OMG! What an awesome way to get your greens. And so easy!
I am a child of the children of the Great Depression. One does not throw out shriveled tomatoes. One eats them … in some way … so thus the beginnings of a dinner dish.
Once upon a time, Brussels sprouts were hard to find at the grocer’s but not anymore because this little brassica (think broccoli and cabbage) has been tagged for potent, anti-cancer properties.
I combined my pot roast technique with Cooking Light’s basic seasoning ingredients for the cannellini beans, added kale to give it a Tuscan flare and, I must admit, I did a dang good job creating a tasty, hearty dish.
