Broccoli…..i always wonder what to do with you. I get tired of the same o same o broccoli side dishes. This dish reminds of a broccoli salad minus the mayo, and it’s not cold. If i plan on feeding it to the kids i don’t add the chili flakes as…

You will kick yourself if you don’t double this recipe. As you all know soups are better the next day, and this one is no exception. My family requests this soup often and a certain friend, that will remain nameless, but you know who you are…. In our house we…

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, these are good. My family fights over who will eat the last one. Simple to make, and a great side. I usually triple this recipe to have some in the fridge to eat on philly steak sandwiches, or to use in panini’s. Great addition,…

Sweet and Sour Cabbage

If you like cabbage and vinegar you’ll be sure to like this.  At first it looks as if it will serve 10 people, but it wilts down drastically.  I try and make enough to have left overs.  Then I add it to the Asian Chicken Wraps, or mix it in…

My husband claims he doesn’t like cucumbers, but he eats these. It’s a great summer side dish with bbq, or a nice winter side with lasagna. My point… you can serve this cool, refreshing, creamy side anytime. I let it sit and chill in the refrigerator for an hour or…

This dish is hands down my family’s  favorite cabbage side dish.  My kids slam this down.  The cooking method used brings out a sweetness in the cabbage that you otherwise wouldn’t know exists.  Be sure and remember that it cooks down quite a bit, so you may want to double…
