This pie is definitely a recipe you'll want to bookmark for the upcoming holidays. It's got that classic smooth and creamy sweet potato pie texture with a nice perk from the spiciness of ginger. Perfect.tags: desserts rice, grains and breads vegetables potatoes bake more
Since pancakes and french toast are the breakfasts my son requests the most, I try and make the healthiest versions possible. When I make items like these, I always try to pack them full of nutrition and one of my little favorite ways to do that is with wheat germ. That's right, you heard it. WHEAT GERM is what gives this French toast a slight crispiness.tags: breakfast Budget-Friendly rice, grains and breads fry griddle more
This recipe is a favorite in our house. Not only is it portable, but it's packed with good-for-you ingredients. And and best of all? No sugar! It's a great breakfast or snack for the whole family and perfect for those days when everyone is crazed because it can be eaten on-the-go.
I always have a box of quick-cooking couscous in my pantry. Besides being inexpensive and healthy, it makes the perfect side dish or last minute meal because it cooks so quickly and can be flavored any way you like. I'm a big fan of making a large batch of plain couscous on Sunday nights and refrigerating it in an airtight container so I have it ready for a quick lunch during the week.tags: dinner lunch Budget-Friendly rice, grains and breads vegetables boil more
I know that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb but, I'm so over this winter. I'm a summer gal. Give me longer days and warm breezes over snowstorms and shoveling any day. I'll even take the humid, sweaty (sometimes stinky), New York summers over this never-ending winter. Please, just GIVE ME HEAT! Until then, I'm staying inside and sipping on two of my favorite hot drinks, both spiced with one of my favorite spices, cardamom.tags: drinks simmer more
Pancakes have always been my son and my "special thing." He's 2 1/2 now and we've been making them together every Sunday morning since before he could talk. It's our time to bond and it's an activity that we both look forward to every weekend. Pancakes are a great recipe to try with kids because they require a lot of measuring and mixing; plus, time spent in the kitchen together with your kids is a great way to connect.tags: breakfast desserts rice, grains and breads griddle more
