Stuffed Artichokes

Stuffed artichokes are tasty. However, they are moderately annoying to clean out to stuff, especially compared to how easy the rest of this recipe is. One artichoke is filling for two people. Of course, that depends on how many germs you’re willing to share because I wouldn’t try to cut them in half.

Kale Chips

I have a potato chip obsession, but slowly kale chips, which are far more healthy for you, have been replacing my salty, crunchy cravings. These are easy to make. They also cook super quickly.

I’ve used a variety of kale — green kale, red Russian kale, and Italian kale — and my favorite is red Russian kale as it’s a little sweeter.

Product Review for Tasty Bite: Kashmir Spinach

Feb 19th, 2010 Posted in Preprepared Meals | no comment »

Every once in a while, I think maybe I can find some good food in a box. For those days I don’t feel like cooking. For sick days. For the times with nothing to take for lunch. I love Indian food so I took a chance when I found this in the natural foods section at Fred Meyer.

Tasty Bite: Kashmir Spinach

Tasty Bite: Kashmir Spinach

This was a take on Palak Paneer with the very Americanized name. It was easy to cook. Looks wise, it’s not too much off from the photo on the box, and it smelled pretty good. However, those can be deceiving with food from boxes.

This was not great. It was soggy, even when I made jasmine rice to go with it. And taste-wise it had little to no flavor. Additionally, it was not filling. I ended up wanting to eat again only an hour later.

Verdict: Don’t Bother

Cheddar and Dill Beer Bread

Cheddar and Dill Beer Bread

Beer bread is great because it’s quick and versatile. You don’t need to wait for it to rise because of the beer’s yeast. You can also throw whatever cheese and/or herb combination that suits your fancy into it. Fresh herbs give a great pop.

Stuffed Fried Bread Dough is delicious. It’s really up to you what you stuff it with. I’ve done it with mozzarella, a little basil, tomatoes, and spinach. Jason added some pepperoni to his own. I’m sure you could make some sweet ones too.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

I love baking bread. In the past year or so, it’s become one of my favorite things. It tastes so much better than what you can buy in the store, and it’s less expensive than really good bakery bread. This Honey Bran Whole Wheat is really yummy. Makes excellent sandwich bag.

If you need to save your extra loaves for later, these freeze really well. I wrap them in saran wrap and then foil before putting in a freezer bag.

This was a big hit in my house. Jason and I both really loved it and have made it multiple times. It’s also probably the most “it has what in it?” dish. Which makes it really fun to make for guests.
