Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli

Broccoli is one of those vegetables that people either love or hate. Once they try it roasted though... a lot of those haters change their mind.

New Mexico Chili

New Mexico Chili

Just about everyone who has created their own chili recipe, fusses over it, tweaks it over many years & keeps it a secret. Mine is no different... I started creating this recipe in the mid 1970's & have changed it many times over the years. Now I'm going to share my Signature Chili Recipe with you... enjoy!

Serves: Approximately 10 to 12

Quick Chili Con Queso

Quick Chili Con Queso

One of my favorite snack recipes, easy to make, so delish & addictive! Double, triple or quadruple the recipe to feed a crowd. If you want to serve it family style & keep it warm on the table, use an electric fondue pot, if you have one & set it to the lowest heat setting.

Serves 3 to 4

Zoodles, How To Make

Zoodles, How To Make

What the heck are Zoodles you ask?! Zoodles are noodles made from zucchini squash. They're very easy to make, delicious, take away a lot of the calories & create a much healthier meal when you use them in place of pasta in your dishes. Using this technique, you can also make noodles from butternut squash & other hard to semi-hard vegetables.

There no limit as to what you can do with Zoodles & other veggie noodles. Use them in salads, slaws, soups, casseroles, on top of pizza & so on. You're only limited by your imagination. Once you try these you'll be using Oodles of Zoodles all the time & your kids will love them too!

Pho Ga

Pho Ga

Pho (pronounced "Fuh") is a hearty, traditional Vietnamese noodle soup originally made with beef. Pho Ga is the version made with chicken. You can also use turkey, which is a great way to use up some leftovers after Thanksgiving. No matter how you make it, it's absolutely delicious!

Yummy when served with heated Naan bread (see Tip# 2) & my Peach Apricot Ginger Spread (see recipe in Bakery, Breads & Spreads category).

Serves: 2 to 4
