Comfort Food – Hawaiian BBQ ChickenHarpers Happenings : Harpers Happenings Posted on | October 12, 2011 | 25 Comments i actually feel silly posting such an easy recipe. but, i didn’t know about it until i found it on Pinterest and the ease and yumminess needs to be shared. this crock-pot dish is going to be my go-to dinner for those days i don’t feel like doing much of anything in the kitchen. because this recipe? doesn’t take much of anything. shop: >> chicken breasts (i used an entire family sized package) >> bottle of BBQ sauce. >> can of pineapple chunks. >> minute rice no seriously, this is all you need. read slowly since it’s super, super involved. you’ll probably want to take the laptop into the kitchen at this point so you have the instructions at your fingertips. place chicken breasts, bottle of sauce, and can of drained pineapple into the crock-pot. cook on low for 4-6 hours. at 5 hours, i shredded the chicken and let it all marinate a bit longer whilst i cooked the minute rice. which again, was really time consuming. easy? tomorrow?

Cedar-Planked Salmon with Horseradish-Chive Sauce I found another goldmine magazine issue. It happens to be the June/July 2011 issue of Fine Cooking. Usually when I get my food magazines in the mail, I hoard them for a later time so I can curl up with them in peace (usually with a glass of good wine) and read them from cover to cover. It’s my own personal heaven. Really. I know some of you can totally relate. This didn’t happen to be the case with this particular issue. ) As soon as the test was over, a co-worker and I celebrated with a drink at the hotel lobby before we took the shuttle to catch our flight home. So, after running to the gate, martini-buzz still in effect, I boarded the plane on time and probably let out the biggest sigh of relief in my life. I’m not a big griller-but I would love to learn. Cedar-Planked Salmon with Horseradish-Chive Sauce Servings: 4 (with leftovers!) Ingredients For the salmon: 1 2-lb boneless, skin-on salmon fillet 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped Salt and pepper, to taste 1.
Long Boy "Burgers" When I saw this recipe in Cook's Country, I knew this would be a home run with Ryan. Meatloaf and burgers are some of Ryan's favorite foods and since I don't make either very often they have risen to special treat status. While I was a bit hesitant about this dish (since I don't particularly like meatloaf or burgers), I was pleasantly surprised in the end. I preferred BBQ sauce to the extra ketchup and the zing of some jalapenos, but Ryan was happy with these "burgers" just the way they were. This recipe said it originally made four burgers, but that seems impossible to me. I easily got 8 out of the mixture, but it depends a lot on your preference of meat-to-bread ratio. Would I make this again? Long Boy "Burgers" Ingredients: Directions: Adjust the oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. 1. 2. 3.
Mmm...is for Mommy: Easy Barbecued Ribs I’ve never cooked ribs before. It’s something I’ve left to the pros, like my favourite, favourite, favourite BBQ joint, Boneheads BBQ. When we were out shopping Thursday night though, there was a pretty good deal on some small packs of pork back ribs, so I decided to give it a go. Friday morning, I remembered that there was a barbecue rib recipe in my new America’s Test Kitchen Slow Cooker Revolution cookbook and I knew it was going to be what I used. The original recipe is fairly large and should be made in a large oval slow cooker. Easy Barbecued Ribs 1.5 tbsp sweet paprika (3tbsp) (Edited Feb ’12 to say I’ve also used mild smoked paprika with fantastic results)1 tbsp light brown sugar, lightly packed (2 tbsp)1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (1/4 tsp)S&P to taste (about 1 tsp each is what I used)2 lbs pork (baby) back ribs (6 lbs) – leave the membrane on the ribs to help hold them together1 cup barbecue sauce (3 cups)Vegetable oil spray. Enjoy!
Peanut Butter Sheet Cake...and how peanut butter can help you get pregnant My older sister Susan and her husband had a tough time getting pregnant. That’s saying it mildly. They did in vitro fertilization five times! In the early stages of her pregnancy the doctors told her that in order to increase her chances of the embryo implanting successfully she needed to consume a lot of calories. She did exactly that. Oh how I was secretly jealous of her free hall pass to eat anything and everything. This recipe comes from Nina Jones, a reader of this blog, who said after reading my blog she immediately thought of this recipe to send me. These are definitely for peanut butter lovers or those trying to conceive (ha-ha). Peanut Butter Sheet Cake…and how peanut butter can help you get pregnant Ingredients Cake: 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup water 1/2 cup butter 1 cup sugar 1 cup brown sugar 2 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1 teaspoon vanilla Frosting: Instructions Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Light Hasselback Potatoes Recipe August 15, 2013 Snack Girl features potatoes because they are inexpensive, nutritious, and super yummy. One of my favorite potato dishes is served at San Francisco Giants’ games. There are these “garlic fries” that stink up AT&T park. Ahhh, San Francisco summer. Many of you probably aren’t aware of the quote: The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. Supposedly, Mark Twain said this, but it turns out that there is no evidence he did. Since I no longer live in San Francisco, I have to make my own garlic fries and I saw this “Hasselback Potato” recipe and decided to give it a try. Here is a great video on how to do it. I like to simply pour garlic all over my potatoes. These are a great way to know EXACTLY how much potato you are consuming and savor your potato experience with lots of slices. Do you like garlic and potatoes? print 264 Hasselback Potatoes Recipe 2 large russet potatoes (about 1 ½ pounds)1 tablespoon butter1 clove minced garlicsalt and pepper to taste

Easy Pulled Pork Recipe The lazy days of summer are almost here and as the temperature climbs, my willingness to slave in a hot kitchen diminishes. This easy 3-Ingredient Pulled Pork can be thrown together in a slow cooker without much effort and without heating up your house. Spend the day at the pool and come back to delicious, fall apart in your mouth pork. Get your notepad ready for the ingredient list. Now you could use a pork shoulder or butt here but I prefer the healthier and leaner pork tenderloin because it makes shredding so much easier because there’s no need to meticulously separate the meat from the fat. The root beer acts as a tenderizer and after soaking in it all day, the pork practically melts in your mouth. Serve warm on top of hamburger buns with some corn on the cob and a salad.
