Recipe Box # 29
I apologize for not getting the Recipe Box online, last week. I am making a wedding for my daughter, at the end of the month, and until then, I am going to do my best, to post daily. I hope you will understand if I use some other ideas for the daily post.
Help me out by sharing some of your first recipes for 2013 or last ones for 2012.
It says, "thai" so I have to like the Thai Chicken San Choy Bau that we are making this week in our Donna Hay Wednesday group. It was a bit spicy and the chopped chicken was a nice change of pace. Kayte selected this recipe from On the Shelf on page 124. I tried it with the greens and it was very good and then I put it on spaghetti and it was spectacular. My toddler granddaughter even liked it. Must have been the hot sauce. I used romaine for the greens and I subbed in red pepper and added some Sirracha to spice it up to make up for the real chilis. Do check out the other cooks' dishes at our Wednesday with Donna Hay site.

Ingredients: 1 zucchini 1 yellow squash 2 carrots 1 mini red pepper 1 mini yellow pepper 1 mini orange pepper 1/4 green pepper spray olive oil 3 slices from a twisted spicy mozzarella roll 1/4 teaspoon black pepper 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano 1 teaspoon chopped fresh basil (my basil is returning) Method: Preheat oven
Another week, another vegetable for our Power Food group, a bunch of women who strive for healthy eating with the most delicious dishes. Each blog is inspiration . Each week, we choose a recipe based on the power food which comes from the book, Power Foods, 150 delicious recipes with the 38 healthiest ingredients from the editors of Whole Living magazine. Brussels sprouts like broccoli and cabbage are cruciferous. This group offers a unique composition of antioxidants that may provide several health benefits. Brussels sprouts are low in calories and offer protein, vitamins and minerals to help build a healthy human. My first issue with brussels sprouts is that it took me years to spell it correctly. Each time, it came up, in writing, and I admit, that was not too often, I would stare into space asking myself does brussel get an S, at the end or is it sprout that gets the S. For some reason, I could not remember that both end with that S. I am happy to tell you, I overcame thi
