My favorite thing to make are fruit pastries. Just cut the down into small squares that will fit into a cupcake pan. Put in a square, brush with a little mixture of honey and melted butter, then add another sheet square and repeat until you've made a little cup. Spoon in fresh fruit, like blueberries, and maybe just a sprinkle of sugar and bake until the fruit is juicy and the dough is browned. My kids like to top them with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or vanilla frozen yogurt.
My husband has wanted this thing FOREVER, and I poo-pooed it. I finally gave in a few weeks ago and let him order it.
I have been pleasantly surprised at how well it cooks. We've made chicken breasts, baby back ribs, a prime rib, a pork loin, and some fish on it so far, and all have been very juicy and tasty. But, I haven't gotten fancy with it. Just put the meat on there and cooked. And, I haven't done many veggies.
Has anyone had one for long enough to suggest some more adventurous meals to try with it?
I hate to admit it, but for a while there our family was eating out once or twice a week. I was really busy at work,and since I am the only person who cooks around here for the most part I just wasn't up to it.
I'd like to say we ate healthy, but UGH...chicken wings and BBQ were some of the top choices.
Since it has gotten warmer, my hubby is grilling more, and I've commissioned my 18-year-old daughter to cook one meal a week. We haven't eaten out for dinner in about a month.
Chop all these ingredients together, toss and serve:
4 medium salad cucumbers, washed and sliced into rounds 5 or 6 medium Roma tomatoes, cubed 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro leaves 1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese (if you like onions you can add them, but I don't)
1/8 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (lighter version if you don't like the strong flavor) 1/8 cup fresh lemon juice salt and pepper to taste whisk together and pour over salad and toss. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
