Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce is a unique twist on good ol' coleslaw! This cold, crunchy side salad is easy to make, and it tastes GREAT!

Do you enjoy coleslaw? We do, and love it… especially in the heat of summer! Coleslaw is easy to prepare, and it’s a wonderful side dish to prepare for a variety of meals or gatherings. This recipe is unique in that the coleslaw is covered in a delicious, flavor-packed Thai peanut dressing! The peanut sauce is the star of this salad and it makes the coleslaw taste absolutely delicious!

It’s easy to make because the peanut dressing only takes a couple minutes to mix together, and the remaining prep is simply cutting veggies for the coleslaw. If you REALLY want to make this dish quickly, you can always purchase pre-made coleslaw bags at the grocery store. That way you will only have to do a small amount of chopping! Do whatever works best for you and your schedule.

Once done, this side dish will make approximately six, one cup servings. The peanut sauce is added right before serving, so if you want to save half of the coleslaw for another meal, simply leave half the sauce off half the salad until you’re ready to serve it again. Keep any leftover salad and peanut sauce covered and refrigerated separately.

Make The Peanut Sauce

Place all the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a medium bowl. The ingredients are peanut butter, lime juice, rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, sriracha, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Whisk or stir these ingredients together until they are fully combined.

Please Note: If you’re using regular creamy peanut butter, the sauce will be just a bit thicker than if you’re using all natural peanut butter. When done, set the peanut sauce aside.

Ingredients for the peanut sauce are measured into a small bowl.Peanut sauce for the coleslaw is mixed together until fully combined.

Prepping The Coleslaw

Remove seeds from, then slice the red bell pepper into very thin matchstick shapes. Slice the carrots in the same way, but then give them a rough chop. You will also need to shred the cabbage, slice the green onions and chop the cilantro for the coleslaw. You can use a combination of green and red cabbage or just green cabbage (that’s how I make it).

If using bagged coleslaw mix, remember to add the bell pepper, cilantro and green onions to the pre-mixed six cups of coleslaw.

Mix The Coleslaw Salad Together

Place all of the salad ingredients into a medium sized serving bowl, and then toss, to combine all ingredients. This is the coleslaw part of the dish. Cover and refrigerate the coleslaw until you are ready to serve, because you want it to be very cold.

DO NOT add the peanut sauce until just before serving! Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce is best when tossed with the sauce right before serving, because it helps keeps the cabbage crisp!

Serving The Thai Coleslaw In Peanut Sauce

When ready to serve, toss the coleslaw with the peanut sauce to combine. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top of the Thai coleslaw in peanut sauce, and serve! The chopped peanuts on top really add nice flavor and extra crunch to the salad.

Snickerdoodle Bread

Make 2 large loaves (or 5 small) of Snickerdoodle Bread, a delicious sweet bread filled with cinnamon chips, and topped with cinnamon-sugar.
Make 2 large loaves (or 5 small) of Snickerdoodle Bread, a delicious sweet bread filled with cinnamon chips, and topped with cinnamon-sugar.

Do you enjoy snickerdoodle cookies? We sure do at our house! There’s just something about that sugar and cinnamon combo that pushes all my buttons! One of my favorite treats growing up was Cinnamon Toast… yum! Now imagine if you will, a cinnamon sugar topped bread loaf with great traditional snickerdoodle flavor, and it’s filled with cinnamon chips! Oh my goodness… it’s delicious!

I found the original recipe online about six years ago, and want to share it with you today. The recipe (as written) will make two 9×5″ loaves, but you can also use the batter to make five small loaves (5¾ x 3¼ x 2½). This bread freezes well (if wrapped airtight), so you can save several loaves for later. The small mini-loaves also make wonderful gifts for friends or family! It is really quite simple to make, and cinnamon chips can be found in many grocery stores or can easily be ordered online. Here’s how to make this delicious bread:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Make the Bread Batter

While you make the batter, remember to preheat your oven to 350°F, and spray the loaf pans with non-stick baking spray (with flour). Okay… let’s get this party started! Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a medium sized bowl. Once combined, set the bowl aside until later.

Flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon are whisked together in large bowl.

Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Mix for about two minutes, until the batter becomes light and fluffy. Now add 4 eggs, ONE AT A TIME, beating each one into the batter before adding the next one.

Add sour cream and vanilla extract to the batter, and beat until combined. Now add the flour mixture to the batter, a little at a time, beating on low as you add it. Mix the flour in only until incorporated, being careful to not overmix the batter.

Butter, sugar and eggs are beaten until very smooth with an electric mixer.Sour cream and vanilla extract are added to the snickerdoodle bread batter.Flour and other dry ingredients are added to the batter for the snickerdoodle bread and combined.

Time To Add The Cinnamon Chips!

Now it’s time to add the cinnamon chips to the batter. Before adding them, place the chips in a small bowl with 2 Tablespoons flour and gently stir until lightly covered. This will help the cinnamon chips to be distributed evenly through the bread and not drop to the bottom of the loaf while baking.

STIR the flour-coated cinnamon chip mixture into the snickerdoodle bread batter until fully incorporated. At this point it will be a fairly thick dough.

Cinnamon chips are tossed in flour before adding them to the bread batter.After adding the cinnamon chips, the batter is stirred until fully combined.

Prepare The Bread For Baking

Divide the dough evenly between the bread pans. In large (9″ x 5″) pans, the pans will be a little less than halfway full. If you’re using mini loaf pans (5¾” x 3¼”), they shouldn’t be more than 2/3 full.

Now it’s time to make the cinnamon sugar topping! Mix 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl until combined. Sprinkle this mixture lightly over the top of the loaves to cover.

Batter for the snickerdoodle bread is divided into loaf pans.Each of the loaves is topped with cinnamon sugar mixture before baking.

Bake The Snickerdoodle Bread

Place the loaves on the middle rack of a preheated oven. Bake large loaves at 350°F for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top/center comes out clean. If you’re making small mini-loaves, bake for 35-40 minutes, then test for doneness.

Transfer the pans to a wire rack, and let the loaves cool at least 10-15 minutes BEFORE attempting to remove the bread. Run a butter knife around the edges of the pans, then invert the pan to remove the bread. Place the loaves on a wire rack, and let them cool completely before slicing and serving.

Who Wants A Delicious Slice Of Snickerdoodle Bread?

When ready to serve, cut the snickerdoodle bread into beautiful slices, serve and enjoy! It is delicious bread, and the cinnamon flavor is wonderful, especially with all those yummy cinnamon chips!

Rosemary Wine Lamb Chops

Rosemary Wine Lamb Chops are a delicious main dish. Well-seasoned chops are pan-seared, then topped with a simple red wine reduction sauce.
Rosemary Wine Lamb Chops are a delicious main dish. Well-seasoned chops are pan-seared, then topped with a simple red wine reduction sauce.

My husband and I had a fun time cooking and taking photos of this delicious main dish we had several months ago. He had bought lamb chops at the store, and then needed a recipe for making them. I found this recipe online, and we prepared this dish together in our kitchen. Actually… I took on the role of his “assistant”, and guided him through the cooking process. I prepped everything, and then he cooked it!

We had such a great time cooking together, and these delicious rosemary wine lamb chops were the result of our efforts! They’re simple to prepare, and even if you’ve never made lamb chops before, I’m sure you will enjoy this recipe. We used lamb shoulder chops (there are different kinds of lamb chops), and they came out perfect! Here’s how to make them.

Make The Red Wine Reduction Sauce

It’s good to make the sauce BEFORE pan-searing the lamb chops. Then, all that’s needed, once the lamb chops are almost done is to give the sauce a quick reheat in the pan. This wine reduction sauce is easy to make. Here’s how:

Melt ½ Tablespoon of coconut oil in a small saucepan on Medium heat. Once melted, add ¼ cup of chopped shallots to the pan. Cook the shallots for about 3 minutes, stirring often, until they become tender and translucent.

Add ½ cup of red wine and ½ cup of beef broth to the saucepan, and stir to combine. Bring this liquid to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to LOW, and continue to cook until the liquid has been reduced by half. This will take several minutes. The final step is to add butter to the reduced sauce, and stir to combine the ingredients. Remove the saucepan from the heat source.

Chopped shallots cook in melted coconut oil in a small saucepan.Red wine and beef broth are added to the saucepan to make a reduction sauce.Butter is added to the red wine and shallot reduction sauce.

Season, Then Pan-Sear The Lamb Chops

Mix rosemary, thyme, sea salt and black pepper together in a small bowl. Season BOTH sides of the lamb chops with the spice mix. Add minced garlic to the lamb chops, and press onto the surface of the meat, to adhere. Once seasoned, let the lamb chops rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

NOTE: This recipe calls for FOUR 6-8 ounce lamb shoulder chops. My husband brought home FIVE from the store which were on the smaller side (about 6 ounces per chop), so my photos reflect that.

Lamb chops are seasoned with spices on both sides before cooking.

Place 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil into a large skillet and melt it on Medium-High heat. Once the oil is really hot (but not smoking), add the lamb chops. They should sizzle when they hit the pan. Once in the skillet, let them cook for 3-4 minutes WITHOUT MOVING THEM. This will pan-sear them to a nice brown color on the bottom.

Carefully turn the chops to the other side, and continue to cook the second side for another 3-4 minutes. When done, the lamb should be nicely browned on both sides, and cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F. 

Seasoned lamb chops are pan-seared in oil in skillet.The lamb chops are pan-seared on both sides for 3-4 minutes, until browned.

Serve The Rosemary Wine Lamb Chops

To serve, place the hot, pan-seared lamb chops onto individual plates. Generously spoon some of the wine and shallot sauce over each portion, and serve with a veggie, rice or potato on the side. The wine reduction sauce with shallots adds great flavor to the well-seasoned lamb chops, so I’m confident you’ll enjoy this dish!

Two rosemary wine lamb chops are served on a plate with rice on the side.Covered with sauce, the rosemary wine lamb chops are tender and delicious.

I hope you have the opportunity to make and enjoy these delicious rosemary wine lamb chops, and trust you will enjoy them as we do. Thanks for stopping by today, and I sincerely hope you will come back again soon for more recipes. Take care, and have a GREAT day!

How To Make Oat Milk

Ever wondered how to make oat milk? It’s EASY! With only 2-3 common ingredients you can make 5 cups of this non-dairy milk alternative.
Ever wondered how to make oat milk? It's EASY! With only 2-3 common ingredients you can make 5 cups of non-dairy milk alternative.

Nowadays there are new options springing up everywhere for non-dairy alternatives for milk, ice cream, etc. I am NOT dairy-free, but I do buy almond milk occasionally, and use it on my cereal or in oatmeal. I became aware of oat milk via commercials on TV and wondered about this product. Truthfully it sounded kind of odd to me, but I was still curious about it.

I discovered a recipe for how to make oat milk in a book by celebrity chef Michael Symon and thought I’d give it a try. Wow! It was SO EASY to make, and costs a fraction of what a carton in the store costs nowadays! It only takes a couple ingredients to make, and it tastes great on my morning cereal. WHO KNEW?

I would like to show you how to make oat milk, as a cheaper alternative to buying it, or as a tasty alternative for those who don’t use dairy products. I think you’ll be surprised how easy and inexpensive it is to make.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Soak The Oats

Place 1 cup of old-fashioned oats (not instant!) in a large mixing bowl, and cover with 4 cups of cold water. Stir to combine, then let the oats sit and soak in the water at room temperature for 1 hour. Think of it as a “swimming pool” for oats.

Raw old fashioned oats soak in water for one hour.

Strain The Soaked Oats

After the oats have soaked for an hour, position a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl or sink. Slowly pour the water/oat mixture into the strainer to drain the oats. Give the oats a quick rinse (still in the strainer), then dump the accumulated water in the bowl underneath the strainer. Place the drained oats in a blender.

The water is strained off the soaked oats into a large bowl.The drained oats are placed into a blender.

Ready To Blend

Pour 4 cups of FRESH cold water into the blender with the oats. Add a small pinch of salt and a Tablespoon of raw honey OR real maple syrup to the blender, as well. The blender will be pretty full at this point, so make sure you have a tight fitting lid.

Fresh water, honey and a pinch of salt are added to the oats in the blender.Oats, honey, salt and water in the blender before mixing.

How To Make Oat Milk

Put the lid on the blender and blend the oat milk for 2-3 minutes, until it is completely smooth. Start the blender on low speed, then increase it as you go, eventually blending it on high speed, holding the lid in place while mixing!

After mixing the oat milk is completely smooth and blended.

Once the oat milk is smooth and finished blending, pour it AGAIN through a fine mesh strainer positioned over a large bowl. The oat milk will collect in the bowl underneath the strainer, and any leftover “pulp” will be caught in the strainer. Discard the pulp. Keep the oat milk! Strain the oat milk again, and discard any more pulp left in the strainer. Now it’s done.

Pour the oat milk (using a funnel if you have one) into a bottle or other storage container. The recipe will make about 5 cups of oat milk. A quart jar will hold about 4 cups of the milk, so either use two jars or a larger container.

Oat milk is poured through a fine mesh strainer into bowl, leaving pulp in strainer.A funnel is inserted in a jar and oat milk is poured into the jar through the funnel.

Label the container and place the oat milk in the refrigerator to fully chill. Congratulations! You’ve just learned how to make oat milk! It’s really not difficult at all to make, and will keep for up to 5 days in the refrigerator. Not bad, right?

Once fully chilled, shake the oat milk well before each use to reincorporate the ingredients, as they settle a bit and separate during refrigeration. Once mixed, enjoy it over a bowl of cereal, and take pride in knowing you made it yourself, for a fraction of the price of store-bought oat milk.

It's easy to learn how to make oat milk, and you then store it in a labeled jar in refrigerator.A bowl of cereal topped with some of the oat milk is ready to eat.

I hope you will have the opportunity to try this “recipe” for oat milk, and hope you will be as pleased with the results as I am! Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you will come back again soon for more recipes. Take care, and have a GREAT day!

  2. Position a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl or sink. Slowly pour water/oat mixture into the strainer to drain off water. Give oats a quick rinse (still in strainer), then dump any accumulated water.

  3. Place drained oats in a blender. Add 4 cups of FRESH cold water into blender, along with salt and raw honey (or real maple syrup).

  4. Put lid on blender. Blend 2-3 minutes, until oat milk is completely smooth. Start on low speed, then increase it as you go, eventually blending it on high speed, holding lid in place while mixing!

  5. Pour oat milk through a fine mesh strainer positioned over a large bowl. Oat milk will collect in the bowl, and any leftover "pulp" will be left in the strainer. Discard pulp. Strain milk again, then pour oat milk through a funnel into bottle or other storage container, with a lid. Refrigerate until fully chilled.

  6. Once fully chilled, shake or stir oat milk well before using to re-blend, as it settles during refrigeration. Oat milk will keep up to 5 days in refrigerator.

Butternut Squash Coconut Curry, served on a bed of rice, is a delicious, meatless dish, packed with flavor. Simple recipe makes 4 servings.

If you’re looking for a delicious, flavorful meatless meal, may I suggest trying this recipe for butternut squash coconut curry? It’s really delicious… and honestly, the most difficult thing about the recipe is peeling and cubing the squash! Even though my husband and I love meat, we try to have 1 or 2 “meatless meals” every week, and this recipe fits the bill. 

I’m always on the lookout for vegetarian meals since our youngest son began following that eating path quite a few years ago. I prepared this recipe to see how it tasted, so I could possibly serve it to our son and his girlfriend (also a vegetarian) when they come for dinner in our home. After making this dish and enjoying it several times, I’m confident they would like it, too!

The butternut squash coconut curry is big on flavor! Cubes of tender butternut squash pair well with onions, garlic, ginger, curry spices, vegetable broth and coconut milk for a tasty main dish. It tastes wonderful, served on a bed of steamed rice. I’m sure if you try it, you’ll enjoy it. Here’s how to make this recipe:

Prepare The Butternut Squash

Use a vegetable peeler to remove all the outside peel from a butternut squash. Carefully slice the squash in half lengthwise, from top to bottom. Remove the seeds and stringy pulp from each piece, then slice the squash into 1″ thick half-rings. Cut each slice into bite-sized cubes about 1″ in diameter. You will need a total of 4 cups of cubed butternut squash for this dish.

Butternut squash is peeled, halved, de-seeded, then cut into cubes.

Make The Curry Seasoning

Heat coconut oil in a large skillet or saucepan on Medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, minced garlic and grated fresh ginger. Stir to combine, and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until the onion becomes tender and translucent. Continue stirring, to prevent the garlic from burning and becoming bitter.

Stir curry powder, thyme, and paprika into the onion mixture in the skillet, and continue to cook (and stir), for one more minute.

Chopped onions, garlic and grated ginger are cooked in hot oil in a large skillet.Curry powder, thyme and paprika are added to cooked onion/garlic mixture in skillet.Onions, ginger, garlic and curry spices cook together in skillet for 1 minute.

Cook The Curry

Now add a can of coconut milk (stirred before adding), vegetable broth, and the butternut squash cubes. Stir to combine these ingredients, then bring the liquid to a boil. Once it begins boiling, place a lid on the pan or skillet.

Reduce the heat to LOW heat, and let the butternut squash coconut curry simmer for about 13-15 minutes. Cooking time might vary slightly depending on the size of the squash cubes you’ve added. When the squash is tender and a knife can easily be inserted without resistance, it is done. You do NOT want the squash to become “mushy”, so keep an eye on it while cooking.

Cubes of butternut squash, canned coconut milk and vegetable broth are added to the skillet.The butternut squash coconut curry is cooked until the squash becomes tender.

The last step is to add chopped cilantro, salt and cayenne pepper to the butternut squash coconut curry. Give it a good stir to combine, make sure it’s heated through, and then it’s ready to serve!

Cilantro, cayenne pepper and salt are stirred into butternut squash coconut curry.

Serving Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

We enjoy this dish, especially when served on top of steamed rice. The blandness of the rice is a good balance to the slightly spicy curry flavor. To serve, divide the butternut squash over rice in serving bowls, then top with the sauce and more chopped cilantro. Typically curries are usually “swimming” or completely covered in sauce, which is great if you enjoy it that way.

For this curry, I prefer to spoon lots of the sauce over the rice and butternut squash, but stop short of covering it all up with sauce. It’s your choice as to how you wish to serve this dish! All I know is which ever way you prefer to serve this butternut squash coconut curry, I believe you’ll enjoy it!

My husband and I really enjoy scrambled eggs. Typically we drink coffee and have a bowl of oatmeal, cereal or an English muffin for breakfast, but we DO love a nice big breakfast occasionally. This recipe for TexMex Veggie Egg Scramble is one I’ve made often.

TIP: If you do not like zucchini, broccoli makes a great substitute and tastes good in this dish, as well! If you don’t enjoy tomatoes with the eggs, you can substitute chopped red bell pepper as well. Just keep the quantity the same for any substitutions, and you will be just fine. You really can’t hurt this egg dish.

Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus

Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus is a delicious veggie dish, that’s oven-roasted and topped with melted mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus is a delicious veggie dish, that's oven-roasted and topped with melted mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

Do you enjoy fresh asparagus? We really do, especially when it is in season in the Spring, and prices come down for this delicious vegetable. A couple asparagus recipes we really enjoy are cream of asparagus soup and grilled asparagus with lemon and Parmesan! Today I want to share a wonderful recipe I found online (on Pinterest) that’s a yummy way to enjoy fresh asparagus.

Fresh asparagus spears are coated in a garlic/olive oil mixture, oven-roasted, and then coated with Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. After that, the asparagus is then put back in the oven to melt the cheese. Once melted, and the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, it’s ready to serve in all it’s cheesy goodness! It’s delicious, and today I want to show you how simple it is to prepare.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

How To Make Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus

First things first- preheat your oven to 425°F.  It doesn’t take long to prepare the asparagus, and you’ll need the oven hot and “ready to go” once you’re done seasoning them.

This recipe requires one pound of fresh asparagus. Snap or slice off the “woody” ends of the stalks, then discard the ends. Gather the ingredients needed, which are olive oil, minced garlic, salt, pepper, shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese.

"Woody" ends of fresh asparagus are snapped or cut off.Salt, pepper, olive oil, garlic, mozzarella and Parmesan and asparagus are ingredients used.

Place olive oil and the minced garlic in a small bowl or cup, and stir well to combine. Lay the prepared asparagus stalks in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil mixture over the asparagus. Toss the asparagus to cover each stalk with the garlic and oil mixture, then place them back in a single layer on the baking sheet.

Minced garlic cloves are combined with olive oil to season asparagus.A garlic and olive oil mixture is drizzled over fresh asparagus before baking.

Ready To Roast

Sprinkle the asparagus spears with salt and black pepper. Now the asparagus is ready to roast in the oven. Bake at 425°F for approximately 12-15 minutes. The asparagus should be tender, but not FRIED.

Keep in mind that the thicker the stalks, the longer it will take them to become tender. Keep an eye on them as they bake, and check on them around 10 minutes into the baking time. When done, remove the pan from the oven.

The asparagus stalks are now seasoned with salt and pepper.

Final Step – Add The Cheeses

Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese and then the shredded mozzarella cheese across the middle section of the asparagus spears (as shown below). I like to keep the bottom and the top of the asparagus free of cheese (for presentation). Feel free to totally cover the asparagus with cheese, if you prefer.

Place the pan back into the oven and continue baking for a couple of minutes, until the cheese has fully melted. Once melted, turn the oven broiler on, and place the baking sheet 4-5 inches away from the heating element. Broil only until the cheese is bubbling and has turned golden brown on top. Please keep an eye on it, because you do NOT want it to burn under the broiler!

A layer of Parmesan and mozzarella cheeses are added to roasted asparagus.Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus, hot out of the oven, and ready to serve.

Time To Eat Some Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus!

Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and transfer the cheesy garlic roasted asparagus to individual plates (or a serving platter) using a large spatula. I separate up a section (or serving) at a time, and move it to our plates. When I photographed this dish, we enjoyed it served with pan seared Creole salmon, and it was a great pairing!

A portion of the cheesy garlic roasted asparagus is served alongside salmon on plate.

Thanks for stopping by, and I truly hope you have the opportunity to make this delicious cheesy garlic roasted asparagus side dish! Take care, have a great day, and please come back soon for more family-friendly recipes. May God bless you and those you love.

Mussels in Wine Garlic Butter Sauce

Mussels in Wine Garlic Butter Sauce are a delicious, decadent main course to serve, and are easier to make than you might think.
Mussels in Wine Garlic Butter Sauce are a delicious, decadent main course to serve, and are easier to make than you might think.

My husband surprised me by bringing home a large bag of fresh Penn Cove (Washington state) mussels a couple of months ago, after a shopping trip to Costco. My first thought was… “I’ve EATEN them in restaurants and enjoyed them, but how on earth do you COOK them”? True story. I had never, in our 45 years of marriage COOKED mussels before. Gulp.

I immediately started a crazed internet search, and realized it wasn’t as complicated as I thought. Now if you’ve been cooking mussels for years, you’re probably giggling at this, but it’s true. I was on a mission. Here I was, looking at a HUGE (Costco sized) bag of fresh seafood that I had to use within a few days, so they wouldn’t go to waste. I ended up using part of the mussels for this recipe, and then adapted another recipe for Thai-inspired green curry mussels to use the rest a couple days later (also fabulous)!

The recipe I found was actually in the form of a video I discovered on YouTube. After watching it a few times, and frantically scribbling down the recipe as a restaurant chef prepared them, I decided to GO FOR IT! My husband and I helped each other make this dish, and we had lots of fun cooking together in the process. The results far exceeded my expectations! These mussels in wine garlic butter sauce taste fantastic, and were so much easier to prepare than I anticipated. Here’s how to make this dish:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Preparing To Cook The Mussels

Heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high heat in a large skillet (one that has a LID). Once the oil is hot, but not smoking, add minced shallot, and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add minced garlic and a pinch of red chili flakes. Continue to cook, stirring often, for 30 seconds, being careful to not burn the garlic (or it becomes bitter). 

Minced shallots, cooking in olive oil in large skillet.Garlic and red chili flakes are added to cooked shallots in skillet.

Cooking The Mussels

Add the rinsed, drained closed shell mussels to the skillet and toss, to coat them with the shallots and garlic in the pan. Pour white wine into the skillet, stir quickly to incorporate, then cover the skillet. Let the mussels steam (covered) for about 3-4 minutes, or until most or all of the shells have opened. Keep an eye on the pan, and check them after 2-3 minutes to see if the shells have opened. 

The mussels are done cooking when their shells have opened, revealing the meat inside. Use a slotted spoon to remove the mussels from the skillet, letting any accumulated juices drain back into the pan. This liquid in the skillet will be used to make the sauce.

Mussels are added to the skillet with white wine, shallots and garlic.The mussels are steamed in a covered skillet until they have opened.

Transfer the mussels to serving bowls and keep them warm while you make the sauce. Discard any mussels that didn’t open while cooking.Cooked, opened mussels are placed in serving bowls and kept warm until sauce is made.

Make The Wine Garlic Butter Sauce

Immediately add butter to the liquid in the skillet after removing the mussels. Cook until the butter has melted, stirring to combine, then add chopped parsley to the sauce.

Butter is added and melted into liquids remaining in skillet after removing mussels.Chopped parsley is added to the hot wine garlic butter sauce in skillet.

Serve The Mussels In Wine Garlic Butter Sauce

Pour the sauce over the mussels, evenly dividing it between the bowls and serve immediately, while hot. I recommend a nice piece of crusty garlic bread on the side, because it tastes delicious dipped in the sauce. My husband and I put a large extra bowl in the middle of the table to put our discarded shells in as we eat them.

Here is a close up of one of the mussels in wine garlic butter sauce. It sure tastes great, flavored with that yummy sauce!

These delicious mussels are really a lot easier to make than you might have imagined. My husband and I had fun cooking this meal together, and we truly love this dish! I hope you enjoy this recipe, and have the opportunity to make it soon! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will come back again. Take care, and may God bless you.

  4. Use a slotted spoon to remove mussels from skillet, letting any accumulated juices drain back into the pan. This liquid in the skillet will be used to make the sauce. Transfer mussels to serving bowls; keep them warm while you make sauce. Discard any mussels that didn't open while cooking.

  5. Immediately add butter to liquid remaining in the skillet. Cook only until the butter melts, stirring to incorporate it into the sauce. Add chopped parsley and stir.

  6. Pour the sauce over the mussels, evenly dividing between bowls. Serve immediately, and enjoy!

Apple Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash

Apple Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash is a yummy baked side dish filled with cranberries, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, apples and pecans.Apple Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash is a yummy baked side dish filled with cranberries, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, apples and pecans.

While looking for different ways to cook acorn squash, I came upon a recipe in The Farmers Almanac that sounded really good. I made a couple changes to the original recipe and cut the recipe in half (to make 2 servings, instead of 4).

This recipe for Apple Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash is amazing, and it is super simple to prepare. An acorn squash (found in most grocery stores) is baked, then stuffed full of apples, cranberries, pecans, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon, then re-baked until tender. There is minimal prep time involved, which is always a win-win in my book! Here’s how to make this delicious side dish:

Prepare The Acorn Squash

Acorn squash belongs to the winter squash family, and is dark green in color, with long ridges from top to bottom. It slightly resembles the shape of an acorn, is golden in color inside, and slightly sweet once cooked.

To prepare the acorn squash for this recipe, carefully cut the squash in half, lengthwise, from top to bottom, and remove the stem. Once cut, use a large spoon to remove the seeds and the pulp from the middle of each half, being careful NOT to cut through the outer skin on the bottom. This will leave a large well in the center of each piece, which will be filled later.

Place the squash halves, cut side down in a large baking dish. Pour boiling water into the dish, to a depth of about ¼”. Place the pan into a preheated 375°F. oven, and bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Once done, remove the pan from the oven and carefully turn the squash halves over with a spatula, so the flesh side is facing up.

Acorn squash halves are baked in 1/4" water in an oven-safe rimmed pan.

Stuff The Squash And Bake

Now it’s time to make the filling. Place chopped apples, dried cranberries, chopped pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter in a bowl, and stir well, to combine. Divide the mixture evenly between the squash halves, filling the well in the center, and mounding it on top. TIP: Use a bit of aluminum foil to help level the squash, by crumpling it up and wedging it under the front part of each piece of squash.

Place the pan back into the oven (uncovered). Continue baking the apple pecan stuffed acorn squash an additional 30 minutes, or until the squash and apples are tender. When done, remove the pan from oven.

A filling with diced apples, cranberries, pecans, etc. is combined to fill acorn squash halves.Each of the squash halves are filled with the apple pecan mixture before baking again.

Serve The Apple Pecan Stuffed Acorn Squash

The apple pecan stuffed acorn squash is ready to serve, once it is removed from the oven. Use a heavy spatula to transfer squash halves to individual serving plates, then serve. The tender apples, chewy cranberries, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar and crunchy pecans taste amazing with the slightly sweet, nutty acorn squash!

We enjoyed the apple pecan stuffed acorn squash, served with Pan Seared Creole Salmon and Cheesy Garlic Roasted Asparagus. My husband said the acorn squash was “almost” like eating dessert! I think this delicious side dish would be a great dish for Thanksgiving, because of its unique presentation.

Honey Garlic Shrimp is a one-pan meal that can be prepared and served in about 15 minutes! It's a simple to prepare, yet delicious recipe!

Sometimes all I want at the end of a long day is a quick and easy dinner to enjoy, without a lot of effort! This recipe for honey garlic shrimp is just that! The recipe is incredibly easy to make, and the end result is a tasty shrimp entree covered in a delicious (and did I mention EASY) sauce?

Ready to serve in about 15 minutes. it’s a perfectly yummy meal choice for busy days, and my husband and I really enjoy it. I’m confident you will, too. Here’s how simple it is to make honey garlic shrimp:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

Prepare The Honey Garlic Sauce

The first thing you will need to do is make the sauce that will cover the shrimp later on. Heat a large skillet (I recommend cast iron if you have it) on Medium-High heat. Once it is hot, add 2 T. butter  and let it melt.

Now add soy sauce, honey and minced garlic to the melted butter. Cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring so the garlic does not burn (and become bitter in taste). Once the sauce has thickened a bit, transfer it from the skillet into a bowl, and set aside. 

Butter is first melted in a cast iron skillet, to begin making sauce for shrimp.Soy sauce, honey, and minced garlic are added to melted butter in the skillet.Garlic honey sauce for the shrimp, cooking in a cast iron skillet.

Cook The Shrimp

Now it’s time to quickly cook the shrimp.  Melt 1 Tablespoon butter in the same skillet you cooked the sauce in. Add the shrimp to the skillet, in a single layer. Let them cook for 2 minutes, then flip them to the other side using tongs. Cook for 1-2 more minutes on medium-high heat, being careful to not overcook the shrimp or they will become “rubbery” in texture. When done, the shrimp will have turned slightly pink in color.

Immediately add the reserved sauce back into the skillet and stir to cover the shrimp with the honey garlic sauce. Heat only until the sauce is reheated, stirring often to coat shrimp ( about 30 seconds to a minute), then remove the skillet from the heat.

Shrimp are cooked in a cast iron skillet for only a few minutes.Honey garlic shrimp are covered in sauce and heated through before serving.

Serve The Honey Garlic Shrimp

Place the honey garlic shrimp on top of a bed of rice on individual serving plates. Drizzle each portion with lime juice, then sprinkle with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. The sesame seeds, green onions and lime juice provide extra flavor, color and texture to the shrimp.

I also definitely recommend serving this dish on top of rice, because it provides a nice (bland) balance to the shrimp and sauce. Once the honey garlic shrimp has been garnished, serve immediately while hot… and ENJOY this yummy meal!
