Vietnamese Beef and Red Cabbage Bowl

Rating: Unrated

I love the bold taste of Vietnamese dishes. This is packed with flavor and spice and is just beautiful in colors. I have tried doing individual bowls but prefer a family-style serving. Serve with a quality jasmine rice and spring roll for additional savory awesomeness. Add a little sliced habanero pepper if you want to increase the heat level. (I'm from Texas and like heat.)

This easy red cabbage salad is full of vitamins. The salad should sit for at least 1 hour to develop its full flavor before eating.

Blaukraut (German Red Cabbage)

Red cabbage with apples is a traditional German side dish for pork roast and other roasts, Christmas goose, turkey, and game. It tastes even better when reheated so I usually make it the day before. It is a staple on most people's home for Christmas dinner.

Chicken and vegetables get a smoky makeover in this sheet pan dinner for four. These particular vegetables absorb the smoked paprika nicely and are a perfect complement to the bacon-wrapped chicken.

Baked Cod Fish Tacos

A personal spin on baked cod fish tacos. When beef or chicken gets tiresome, do something fishy! Omitted cilantro due to personal tastes, but feel free to add if desired.

Ground Turkey Burritos That Will Fool Your Kids

Rating: Unrated

Great burritos that your kids will eat and ask for more. Ground turkey, crushed tomatoes, rice, onions, garlic, and celery wrapped in red cabbage within a white tortilla shell. We go to a lot of evening swim meets and our kids love them. If we told them what was inside they would say Eww! Without cheese, this is a lighter dinner alternative on the go.
