Feel like a kid again-okay, a health-conscious kid-with crispy, crunchyoven "fried" turkey fingers and a sweet and savory dipping sauce. To savetime, make the sauce ahead or while the tenders are baking.
Just what the name implies - these are German-style potato dumplings, as found everywhere in the South of Germany, Austria and Bohemia. These are traditionally served with any roast with gravy, but most well-known as an accompaniment for a hearty Sauerbraten and red cabbage. Like polenta, second-day leftovers are a treat when sliced into slabs and fried in butter.
I have to admit I've never understood the popularity of the "Sunday brunch" at otherwise decent restaurants—the lines are ridiculous, the food often subpar, and you know as well as me the waitstaff have plenty of better things to do (like nurse their own hangover). My indifference to this cultural phenomenon doesn't mean I don't love a pile of pancakes and a fried egg or two; it's just that I prefer them from the comfort of my own home.
As the name implies this recipe does not originate in Germany, it is the Balgian cousin of the German Schnitzel and widely popular in Germany. There are many variations of the Cordon Bleu but traditionally in Germany it is a fried Schnitzel filled with Ham and Cheese.
Rich, creamy, and packed with uncompromising flavor from a slew of aromatics and shrimp paste, this classic Northern Thai soup combines tender braised chicken in a coconut-y curry broth with boiled and fried noodles. Our version is the real deal, straight from the streets of Chiang Mai.
A fun and delicious alternative to deep-fried doughnuts. This cinnamon-sugar dusted baked doughnut recipe turns milk, flour, nutmeg, sugar, eggs, butter, and yeast into perfectly dunkable, delicious doughnuts.
Kids everywhere will eat their zucchini! In my pre-vegan, pre-health fanatic days, I loved ordering fried mozzarella sticks as an appetizer... now these baked zucchini sticks hit the spot! I've included a dipping sauce recipe (roasted red pepper sauce) but feel free to use your favorite marinara.
You haven't eaten fried mozzarella sticks until you've tried these mozzarella sticks, breaded with light, crispy Panko bread crumbs. Pay attention to the breading process---you can repeat it with zucchini spears, sweet potato sticks, chicken tenders, raw shrimp. Anything that needs breading. Panko crumbs for President!
It's not entirely clear where Singapore noodles—the stir-fried curried rice noodles with shrimp, pork, and vegetables—come from, though it's unlikely Singapore is the source. Regardless, they're a stir-fry classic, and are easy to make at home. Here's what you need to know, from how to choose the right rice noodles to how to make the stir-fry work on a home burner.
When I think about traditional holiday side dishes, Green Bean Casserole always comes to mind. The problem for me is that two of the main ingredients come from a can. Although your mom's green bean casserole may have been delicious, most likely it was made with a can of Cream of Mushroom soup and topped with a tin of fried onions. But don't despair, there are ways to recreate this classic the way you remember, only healthier and a lot more fresh tasting. With just a bit of freshly grated parmesan, some sauteed onions and a homemade, flavorful sauce, the green bean casserole of your youth is taken to a new level and becomes something even more special that your kids will...
Hey Everyone! How are you liking my Healthy Habits blogs so far? Did anyone try out the GNC protein shake I recommended? As promised in my Healthy Habits: My Typical Meal Plan post, here is the recipe for my all-time favorite meal for dinner: almond chicken. It's super healthy and it's really easy to make (remember, if I can make it anyone can). I found this recipe online over a year ago and have been loving it ever since! It makes me think I'm eating fried chicken fingers, but it's actually just healthy chicken breast breaded in wheat flour and almonds. Put it this way-my 8 year old sister devours these like she would a McDonalds Happy Meal, but they're healthy! I make this recipe at least once a week. It keeps well for a few days in the fridge so I usually just heat them up on a cookie sheet in the oven when I want the leftovers. I cannot explain how yummy it is to eat yet easy it is to make. Like I said, I've made it at least once a week for over a year now (OK, I'll admit it, it's one of the only things I actually can cook) so it's like second nature for me to whip these up. Here's the whole recipe (serves 4) courtesy of EatingWell.com:Ingredients Canola oil cooking spray 1/2 cup sliced almonds 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 large egg whites 1 pound chicken tenders Instructions Preheat oven to 475
How's that for a lengthy recipe name? All the elements of this salad were so delicious, I didn't want to leave any out in the description. This was the creation after I made the Chicken and White Bean Stew and
