Paprika Green Beans

I was so happy with the flavors of Aunt Millie’s Hungarian Goulash that I decided to try some of the flavors to make green beans special. Mr. C and I both gobbled up Paprika Green Beans and I’ll be making these green beans again!

Parmesan Lemon Roasted Asparagus

Since Andi brought me that big bag of asparagus I can’t stop thinking about it. I made Simple Roasted Asparagus the other day but I had asparagus left and still wanted more! Just to jazz things up I listened to a suggestion Margaret from Soul Food 101 and made Parmesan Lemon Roasted Asparagus.

Simple Roasted Asparagus

Asparagus used to be a spring only treat but now asparagus is available in most places year round. And I’m not talking about that awful canned asparagus. This is the asparagus you get in the produce section, not the canned or even frozen aisles! I love the stuff and last night I made simple roasted asparagus.

Breaded Zucchini, Mushrooms & Onions – An Experiment

I can never make things easy for myself without doing something at the same time that makes it harder. When I decided to make my Marinated Slow Cooker Chuck Roast because it was hot and I was tired I should have stopped. But I decided to also make breaded vegetables. And, being me, I thought I should try something different. So here it is; Breaded Zucchini, Mushrooms & Onions – An Experiment.

Caramelized Broccoli with Mushrooms

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved broccoli. Yep. I was that strange vegetable loving child you’ve heard about. Now that I’m grown I still love broccoli but I like to serve it differently. Caramelized Broccoli with Mushrooms is a great way to get the broccoli I love with even more flavor!

Pineapple Ginger Rice

Rice is a great side dish for so many meals but plain white rice is boring! The terrific thing about rice is it can get all gussied up and fit right in with darned near anything! When I make Asian dishes or if I’m making something that has that tropical vibe I make my Pineapple Ginger Rice.

Pineapple Ginger Rice turns meals into a tropical getaway!

Keep Rice from Getting Sticky

There are certain recipes that you may want sticky rice. Asian fare usually demands it. If you’re eating with chopsticks (or should be) you need to have nice, sticky rice. But there are times that having rice turn out sticky is the last thing you want! I’ve struggled with ending up with sticky, clumped up rice all my adult life. Yeah, it’s not the biggest problem in the world but it can be really frustrating! But happy days are here! I’ve learned the trick to keep rice from getting sticky!
