Serve this as a dish at a potluck or your next family get together. This is hands down my favorite casserole. This was an invention between three different recipes. Lots of vegetarian and vegan recipes use sweet potato so that was the inspiration of adding sweet potato into the dish. The red bell pepper gave the dish a sweeter flavor and beautiful color.
Instead of sweet potato, try using butternut squash to alert the recipe. Also, I used shiitake mushrooms but you can use any other type of mushroom. Shiitakes have a savory flavor so it compliments this dish well.
Coleslaw is a great add at any BBQ, potluck, or side dish. I made this coleslaw to add it on top of a BBQ pulled chicken sandwich.
Anyhow, I like mayonnaise based coleslaw but there’s sour cream and buttermilk kinds too. I won’t claim this is be best coleslaw, but it’s my favorite type. It’s more vinegar-ie than sweet. If you don’t have it white wine vinegar, swap it with apple cider vinegar.
…BTW, I shredded my own cabbage and carrots for this. If you don’t have enough time for it, buy the shredded coleslaw from the store.
2017 marks the 100th year of sales of the Girl Scout Cookies. Who knew the Girl Scouts sell 200 million boxes a year. That’s crazy! This year is even more special, two new cookies will be offered that will taste like s’mores! One chocolate covered […]
I came across this jasmine rice recipe a year ago, and after a few alterations, it is hands down my favorite way of making jasmine rice. This is so much better than a boxed rice. You will love the smell this rice will make as you are cooking it.
Use coconut oil instead of olive oil. Its health benefits are up to debate but I like using it more than vegetable oils or olive oil.
Here’s yet another easy slow cooker recipe that’s great to take into work as a lunch. It’s healthy, filling, and easy to make on a Sunday morning in prep for the long week ahead. The salsa you use can make or break this recipe. Buy or make fresh chunky type salsa. Make it mild, medium, or hot based on preference. You can use chicken breast or chicken thighs. Chicken breast tends to be dry so I like using chicken thighs.
Top the dish off with guacamole, queso cheese, sour cream, red onions, or fresh cilantro! Serve on top of rice.
These cookies are a great add to any Christmas cookie bake list or potluck. They are easy, quick, and keep well in an air tight container for a week.
I love cinnamon, so I added extra. Add only 1 teaspoon of it if you are not a fan. Next time, I’m going to add nutmeg too!
