Spaghetti Casserole 463K+What kind of recipe makes your all-star list? If you are like me, it must be easy, made from ingredients you are likely to have in your pantry and something most people (including kids and picky eaters) will like. Bonus points for something that can be made ahead of time and doesn’t require much last minute preparation. Scooter’s Spaghetti fulfills all these requirements. But who is Scooter you ask? She is one of my favorite people from way back who is an awesome cook and gave me this recipe. While I’m pontificating, I might as well give you my take on sharing recipes. Case in point, I recently ran into somebody I had not seen in 30 years. Note to Scooter: “I think of you every time I make this, which is really often since we all love it so much.” Scooter’s Spaghetti Cook spaghetti according to directions on the package. Make this ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze without the French Fried onions.

Baked Perfection Roasted Broccoli You know you’ve done something right with broccoli when the person you made it for describes it to someone else the next day as “better than biting into a steak.” Those were Craig’s words and they were a marked change from the first words he uttered about the broccoli, before he bit in: “You made broccoli for dinner? Broccoli and sweet potatoes?” Then he did bite in and his eyes lit up. “Oh my God,” he said. “This is the best broccoli I’ve ever had in my life.” So what did I do to the broccoli to make it taste so good? I can’t take any credit. I’m going to have a hard time this week not posting all of the recipes from her new book, Back To Basics. Specifically, she loves roasting vegetables at a high temperature until they caramelize. Normally, broccoli gets squishy when you cook it. Seriously, this recipe is so easy I can recite it without looking at the book. You preheat the oven to 425. Now, it’s easy. I shook the pan around a bit as it went, but not sure that’s necessary.

smitten kitchen Pita Bread Pita bread is a great bread for beginning bakers or for making with kids. The entire process of making them only takes about two hours too, so it is also a great one for people on a tight schedule. Flat breads can be made in dozens of different ways. Anyone who grew up in a household where flat breads are an essential part of every meal knows will attest that they are a hundred times better when baked fresh than when bought from the store wrapped in plastic and already two or three days old. I wasn't brought up in such a house, actually, but a year or two ago I started going to a local Lebanese restaurant solely for the fresh pita bread that they baked. There are only 6 ingredients in this recipe for pita bread, and you even have quite a bit of flexibility in choosing which of those to include. If you are using active dry yeast, follow the instructions on the packet to active it (see the note on yeast above). While the dough is resting, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. That's it. Yum!

The Fantastic Four – 4 Essential Wild Edible Plants that May Just Save Your Life | Tactical Intelligence Did you realize that knowing just 4 wild edible plants could one day save your life? If there were any four categories of plants that I would recommend all people to know how to use and identify it would be these: Grass, Oak, Pine, and Cattail. For the knowledgeable survivor, knowing just these four plants can make the difference between life and death if stranded in the wilds – for each one is an excellent food source which can sustain you until help arrives. Throughout this week and part of the next, I’ll be going into details on how you can prepare and eat these plants. Grass Surprising to many is the fact that you can eat grass. The young shoots up to 6 inches tall can be eaten raw and the starchy base (usually white and at the bottom when you pluck it) can be eaten as a trail nibble. The best part of the grass plant to eat are the seed heads, which can be gathered to make millet for breads or filler for soups & stews. Oak Pine “You can eat pine?!” Cattail Conclusion
