I like this flatbread with a warm bowl of soup. I also use this recipe as dough for a thick-crust pizza. The use of bread flour, as opposed to all-purpose flour, makes the final product crispier. For a chewier crust, use all-purpose flour. Continue reading
This burger has texture and taste and is not mushy in the middle. I think you’ll find that it has the perfect combination of black beans, veggies, bread crumbs, seeds, nuts, spices, and herbs. I say, Grill it! Continue reading
Pretzel buns make this a fun sandwich. Easy to prepare; tasty when done. Continue reading
¼ cup rice vinegar
½ cup olive oil
¼ teaspoon grated ginger
2 Tablespoons of Tamari sauce
1/8 teaspoon of black pepper
1 medium Napa cabbage
1 bunch of green onions
1 cup of slivered almonds
3-ounce package of ramen noodles
To make the dressing for this salad, combine the first five ingredients (rice vinegar thru black pepper) in a small mixing bowl and stir well. Set aside until ready to use.
Cut the bottom off of the cabbage. Cut into ribbons then chop coarsely. Set aside.
Cut the ends off the onions and slice into thin rounds. Set aside.
Using a large, dry skillet, toast the almonds on medium-high heat for three minutes, so they don’t burn. Remove the almonds to a sheet of parchment (or wax) paper. Set aside to cool.
Crush the ramen noodle into small pieces and toast on medium-high heat in the same skillet used for the almonds. Toast until they just begin to brown. Remove from the skillet to the parchment paper with the almonds. Set aside to cool.
Add all salad ingredients (cabbage, onions, almonds, and noodles) to a large mixing bowl. Add dressing and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to eat.
Tip: I like this best if it is refrigerated for at least 30 minutes, but you can serve it at room temperature, and it is still mighty tasty.

Learning how to properly grill corn, however, has made all the difference in how I enjoy it. Continue reading
