Avocado Egg Salad Roll Ups - Chocolate Dessert Recipes - OMG Chocolate Desserts. Sweet and Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts | The Rustic Foodie. Lemon Caper Egg Salad Recipe - Bright and Crunchy ~ Macheesmo. Normal deli-style egg salad is about the least sexy food I can think of. It’s usually beyond bland, over-mayonnaised, and without any sort of texture at all. Mushy eggs and mayo? SIGN ME UP! Egg salad has potential though. The fattiness and richness of the eggs can work but you need to add big flavors to it to balance out the fat. Acids like lemon juice are very important, but it also needs lots of crunchy ingredients for texture. I must say I think I’ve pretty much perfected the formula for a good homemade egg salad and once you have it down, the variations are limitless. Directions 1) Add eggs to a pot and cover by at least an inch of cold water. 2) Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and transfer to an ice water bath to cool. 3) In a medium bowl, add diced celery, radishes, scallion, mayo, lemon zest and juice, capers, and a pinch of salt and pepper. 4) Add eggs and use a potato masher to gently mash salad together.

Serve egg salad with fresh baby arugula on toast. The good parts. Green Goddess Egg Salad — The Whole Bite. And that is exactly what we have going on here. Egg salad all grown up, not really even close to what you remember from school. I think egg salads main problem is that it's only flavor is eggs, eggs and more eggs. Hard boiled eggs, covered in mayo (made from eggs) and that's it. Where are the herbs? The spices? The color? Instead of mayo, I made an avocado based green goddess dressing with greek yogurt and a little bit of apple cider vinegar for some tanginess. Oh and one more thing, can we all agree that the worst part of making egg salad is chopping a ton of eggs and having bits of smashed yolk all over your cutting board and mega uneven pieces of egg because who can really keep that slippery thing still?

EASY Pancake Recipe. {Pressure Cooker} Haddock with Potatoes & Kale. Pressure Cooker Green Chile Pork Carnitas - Kitschen Cat. Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup - Taste Love and Nourish. I love the flavors of Thai cooking. The contrasts between sweet, sour, salty and spicy are intriguing and unique. This soup, with flavors of creamy coconut, spicy red chilis and a bit of curry, finds balance with citrusy lemongrass and lime. This is a recipe I’ve wanted to make for a while now. There are endless variations of this soup, but this is my lightened up interpretation. The key ingredient is coconut milk and normally, I’ve always reached for the canned variety. With so much flavor going on in this soup and great textures from the creamy broth, wonderful shrimp and Napa cabbage, I doubt you’ll miss any of the fat or calories from canned coconut milk.

Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup In a large pot over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic, ginger and lemongrass.

Lemon basil risotto is a GREAT vegetarian main course! I’ve pumped up the lemon flavor with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest. Added some zip to the basil by making it into a spinach basil pesto.

(Yum!) And topped it all off with some creamy, rich burrata. Burrata isn’t just for Caprese Salad! Though you should totally try both of those recipes, because burrata does shine there. However, there is more to burrata than salads, as this lemon basil risotto shows. Basically burrata here takes a recipe I would serve as a side and elevates it to a main dish. The idea for this lemony burrata risotto came about from two things. First, I wanted to add another risotto to the site. But I knew I wanted to add more risottos as time went on, and recently I was thinking about lemon risotto. But then, second, I was thinking about what I could make to show burrata’s range as an ingredient. And, just like that, I realized what I needed was a lemon burrata risotto.

I should’ve called it the “Dump & Go” chicken dinner. Sidenote: Don’t you HATE IT when people say “should OF”, when they really mean to say “should’ve”? Like, should HAVE. Grammar mistakes kinda irk me… a lot. But I just said “kinda” which is totally unacceptable, but very midwestern, so I’m just staying true to my home, homey. Anywho. (Been watchin’ too much Ladies of London – they’re rubbing off on me.) Also? Personally, I think it’s great, especially these easy “dump and go” dinners because, it literally takes 5 minutes to prep dinner and the rest is done by our Crock Pot crock pot. It’s like that whole Kleenex by Kleenex thing.

Salsa Chicken – not verde – is probably the first dish I ever made in a slow cooker. Easy Crock Pot Salsa Verde Chicken. Slow Cooker Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken. Slow Cooker Chicken Adobo | Manila Spoon. Chicken slowly braised in vinegar, soy sauce, garlic and bay leaves until fall-off-the-bone tender and DELICIOUS. This classic dish can be made a day ahead and tastes even better the next day!

Life does get in the way sometimes. :) I intended to post this well-clamored for recipe last week but alas my migraine headache for 3 days in a row totally prevented me from doing so. So, I apologize to those who were normally awaiting another recipe last week. Things were certainly beyond my control. I guess, it's better late than never. Anyway, let me assure you dear readers that this recipe is certainly worth the wait!

As some of you may know, Adobo is the national dish of the Philippines. To make it even easier, I have decided to finally try a slow cooker version for Chicken adobo, after all it already requires some braising time and the crock pot is the perfect vehicle for this dish. Manila Spoon Published: 04/12/2016 Ingredients Instructions Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. White Chicken Chili. 5 stars based on 96 votes Share on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Pinterest I have tried countless recipes for White Chicken Chili over the years, from this popular “dump it all in a pot” recipe to more authentic versions made with a wide array of chili peppers and hominy.

All were fine, but not what I was looking for. Finally, I came upon this easy 5-star recipe by the Neelys; with over 150 favorable reviews — some even claiming to have won chili contests with it — I was hopeful. I made the recipe as written and it was delicious but since I’m not one to leave well enough alone, I read through each and every review, took into account all of the suggestions and then came up with this modestly adapted (and, dare I say, slightly improved) version. I think you’ll love it — and it’s a one pot meal that you can have on the dinner table in under an hour. As you can see, the chili is made with a store bought rotisserie chicken, which makes it easy.

Process until you have a smooth purée. Breakfast Pasta | Breakfast recipe. I don’t know what it is about breakfast, but I love it. Well, let me rephrase that. I love breakfast foods. I actually don’t have a very big appetite in the morning, but I love breakfast foods in general and can really eat it anytime of the day. There’s something so comforting about pancakes, waffles, bacon (duh), eggs, pastries, fruit and yogurt, oatmeal (well not really, I hate oatmeal…sorry, I know a lot of you are probably disgusted with me right now and I apologize…but the stuff’s like glue to me…I’ll take warm buttered grits over oatmeal any day).

This dish came about because I was craving both breakfast and pasta one night. I know, totally a lame story, but it’s the truth; plain and simple. It’s a great comfort food dish and is really hearty and filling. Breakfast Pasta Serves 4 to 6 Directions: 1. Roasted Butternut Squash Fettuccine - The Lemon Press. Chicken Penne Casserole with Corn and Zucchini - The Seasoned Mom. Hatch Green Chile and Tomato Egg Casserole {Gluten Free} Slow Cooker Cobbler with ALL the Berries. Slow Cooker Cobbler, you ask? Slow cookers don’t have to be just for a main entrée - make your next dessert in the slow cooker and utilize fresh or frozen berries you have on hand! I will be the first to admit that I always make main entrée dishes in the slow cooker. Very rarely do I ever make a side dish (minus my baked potatoes in the slow cooker), and I’ve never made a dessert in the slow cooker.

But I’ve tried challenging myself lately and really crossing boundaries in the kitchen. I live in Florida, and I’m lucky to have at my disposal berries year round. During the few months of the year I don’t have that luxury, I utilize the fresh berries from the past season that I froze. I always make sure to stock up and freeze at least a few gallons of berries while they are inexpensive and in season; for day’s when I’m craving a fresh berry smoothie or even a cobbler like this one. I’ve made this berry cobbler in the slow cooker with both fresh and frozen berries. Don’t forget the ice cream! Slow Cooker Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce - The Food Charlatan.

Originally I wanted to put the wood in our kitchen, dining, and family room, because they are all connected. But then we ripped out the OLD laminate in the kitchen to reveal this awesome linoleum underneath. Oh my gosh, calm down, I’M JOKING. This gross linoleum kind of makes me nostalgic though. Here’s how it’s going. This recipe is a classic from the blog that I changed up to go in the slow cooker. See how it’s just falling apart? This recipe uses bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs that you sear on the stove before slow cooking. If you make this curry, snap a photo and share on Instagram using #TheFoodCharlatan!
