Authentic, No Shortcuts, Louisiana Red Beans and Rice
This is my take on a Louisiana classic. No shortcuts! Put everything into the slow cooker in the morning and you will have your meal ready in the late afternoon or evening, whenever you are ready. This recipe will feed a lot of people.
Spiced Pickled Beets
Sweet and spicy; and the juice makes an excellent marinade for pickled eggs. This recipe is great with freshly cooked beets instead of canned, if you have time.
Fresh Corn and Zucchini Saute
This is a great way to use two of the season's most bountiful crops. Kernels of corn fresh from the cob and tender zucchini are put to wonderful use in this simple and satisfying summer side dish.
Sauteed Beet Greens
My grandmother would pan-fry beet greens with garlic and olive oil. Following her example, I added sun-dried tomatoes and capers for a little more pop! The kids love it and it's quick and easy. Please note, although I have measurements listed, I am a 'pinch here and pinch there' type of cook. You may need to adjust for your personal taste.
A tasty and fairly simple way for people on a gluten-free or wheat-free diet to enjoy a noodle dish. I usually use 4 zucchini and 2 summer squash for a colorful mix.
