Magic Sauce Recipe

Magic Sauce Recipe
I call this the magic sauce recipe. In part, because it makes everything it touches shimmer with deliciousness. It's magic like that. Technically, it's a riff on a chimichurri sauce - one that veered off the rails in a big way. Much tweaking has rendered it a distant second cousin. If that. Let's just start by putting one thing out there. It's as versatile as a black dress. - More Herb Recipes - - More Paprika Recipes - - More Quick Recipes - 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves 2 teaspoons sweet paprika 2 medium cloves of garlic, smashed into a paste 1 well-crumbled bay leaf pinch of red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon + fine grain sea salt 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Gently warm the olive oil over medium-low heat in a skillet or pan, until it is just hot.

Asian Glazed Drumsticks These Asian inspired drumsticks are finger lickin' good! It's hard to believe they are low in points (my husband kept asking me if they were WW friendly as he cleaned the bones!) The glaze would also be great with thighs or wings. I served this with steamed vegetables to make this a complete low fat meal and drizzled the remaining glaze over the vegetables.

39 Deliciously Unexpected Healthy Avocado Recipes If we could eat the avocado piñata hanging in our office, believe me — we would. Unfortunately, we aren’t that lucky and will have to settle for the normal-sized, edible ones instead. So why does the Greatist team love these magical green fruits so much? First off, they’re clearly delicious. But they’re healthy, too! Avocados are a great source of monounsaturated fat (which can improve cholesterol levels, decrease risk of heart disease, and benefit brain activity), vitamin E (a powerful antioxidant), and vitamin B6 (promotes healthy skin and serves as a back-up fuel) . Deena Kakaya Vegetarian Recipes & Cooking Somewhere along the journey, the lines between work and play, rest and recreation changed. For most of the years that my husband and I have been together, we shared energy and squinted-eyed enthusiasm for filling our pockets of free time with making memories, having fun, exploring, travelling and being spontaneous in a sensible sort of way. Our summers were long and full of weekends away and eating outdoors and with friends in the weekday evenings.

Miso Tahini Dressing I don't often get so attached to one thing that it's all I eat, day in and day out, but it happened with a salad dressing a few months ago. A simple shake-up of miso paste, tahini, and lemon, it's nothing revolutionary, and certainly nothing I hadn't had before at the local healthy lunch joint, but for some reason it's really been hitting the spot. Maybe it's because there's a five-year-old at my hip who declared it "the dressing that makes me into a lover of salad things" or perhaps it is because that five-year-old's babysitter asked to be paid in jars of dressing rather than real money, but there is something about this dressing that has given me the strange inertia to make it over and over and over again.

In summer I want salads at most meals, and in winter I love cooked vegetables. My favourite way of eating vegetables in winter is simply oven roasted mixed vegetables. Olive oil, garlic (or not), herbs, salt (or smoked salt) and then to roast them until the outer flesh is slightly caramelised and the inner flesh is nice and soft. I also like to think of ways to wake up and add flavour to simple vegetables. Epicurious Community Table This post appears in the Editors Ask: Cinco de Mayo challenge.

Free Delicious Italian Recipes The local market ran Cornish hens on sale so I took advantage of the opportunity and decided on preparing this Baked Cornish Hen with Cumberland Sauce Recipe for supper. Up until this time I was not real familiar on exactly what Cumberland Sauce consisted of so I guess I kind of prepared this recipe out of curiosity; it kind of reminds me of a sweet and sour sauce, except the ingredients are a little different. Because this is a sauce I don’t normally run into I went to “Wikipedia” to get a little bit of a history on it. “Cumberland sauce is a fruit-based sauce, usually used on non-white meats such as venison, ham, and lamb.
