I used this as inspiration for a dish I made last night. I cooked the butternut squash ahead of time in the microwave, skipped the brown sugar, added pineapple juice since I had some in the fridge, used basil instead of cilantro since that’s what I had, and used a hot curry spice. I served it over brown rice. Was delicious!
It’s key to massage the kale really well to soften it and then salt it to take out the bitterness. This recipe can be altered many ways. You can add sesame tahini, pine nuts, pumpkin seeds, mango, dried cranberries, etc…
This is soooo easy to make.
The first recipe is from Austin Grill and the only margarita recipe I’ve ever used. It makes a delicious and very refreshing drink. Everyone loves them!
I’ve kept the recipes below but have yet to use any of them because the one from Austin Grill is so good.
Yesterday I bought a new spice called Chocolate Chili, which has cocoa nibs with 4 different kinds of chili peppers, cinnamon, juniper berries, oregano, allspice, salt, maple sugar, onion, garlic and coffee! Wow, what a mix! This had me thinking it would be good in a chocolate based cookie. Then I was thinking cherries! An online search brought me to this recipe. I have an annual cookie contest/exchange I need a cookie for and I’m going to give this recipe a try, substituting my new spice. I’m not sure about the onion and garlic though. It’s far down on the ingredient list so maybe it won’t affect it. We will see. If it works out, to the contest it goes!
Update: These turned out pretty gross. The spice was too much. If I did it over, I would only use chili powder and just a touch.
The feta, pine nuts and spinach make this so yummy. I found this makeover recipe in a magazine and have made it many times. This isn’t a weeknight meal as it takes awhile to cook and prepare. It’s a little hard to follow on the magazine page, so I retyped it to simplify it.
First made this at a Charleston, SC cooking class at the Maverick kitchen store. It’s tangy, fresh, and delicious. I found it’s just as good and maybe even bettter when you reduce the mayo and olive oil.
