Important Tips To Follow On How To Grill Chicken Breast Halves

The chicken breast halves are often seen as one of the hardest types of meats you can grill properly. This does not mean that you cannot get it right. You need to grill the chicken breast correctly and you will get to enjoy one of the best-grilled meats ever.

You can grill with direct heat because of the thinner meat cut that would make the meat to easily cook quickly, but it can often be tricky to do the same for the chicken breast. This is because you can end up drying the outer breast meat more than required.

Quick and Easy Beef Stew Recipe

During the winter months (meaning November, December, and January here in Seattle) I get in the mood to slow cook yummy dishes that I dote over lovingly – dishes that bring me through the long winter nights.

But once February rolls around, and the daffodils bloom, and the days are noticeably longer (and warmer), the sunlight calls me to come outside to play. My fading interest in slow cooking is a sure sign that springtime is arriving.

So now that I’m into quick and easy, I wanted to share with you the quickest, easiest beef and root vegetable stew. Ever.

This beef stew took me 10 minutes to prepare. Chop. Chop. Chop. Once the pressure cooker was whooshing away, I was free to bike, play fetch with the dog, sit in the afternoon sun and read, whatever, for the next 40 minutes, only to return to a delicious, savory stew.

Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

This may not sound as tasty as mashed potatoes, but it definitely is, and as comforting, too. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have a cauliflower taste, and people who don’t like cauliflower will enjoy this dish. This dish goes great with baked salmon and a fresh salad.

Cauliflower literally means “cabbage flower” and is part of the cabbage family, as is broccoli. Cauliflower is great for you: it is low in calories and contains many nutritents including fiber, vitamin C, potassium, B6 and folate (although some of the folate is destroyed during the cooking process). It also contains bioflavonoids, indoles, and other phytonutrients thought to be protective against many types of cancer.

Easy Salmon Recipe

I am often asked for an easy, tasty salmon recipe that kids will enjoy. This recipe, which has been passed down for over 60 years, fits the bill. Choose wild Alaskan salmon, along with it being high in healthy omega-3 fatty oils, it is sustainably harvested and has low levels of mercury and other toxins. Canned wild Alaskan salmon is a less expensive alternative and works well for this recipe.

Yummy Raw Hummus Recipe

Sprouted legumes have a stunning amount of nutrients compared to their dried/cooked counterparts. By some estimates thiamin levels increase 5-fold, niacin doubles, vitamin E and caratene levels increase, and there is more vitamin C than in a tomato. Enzymes become activated making proteins and starches more digestible and, therefore, less gas-producing (always a good thing).

Cheesy Salsa Tilapia Fillets

A recipe for adding fish to your diet: Tiliapia - a great choice!

Fish is an excellent source of high quality, easily digestible protein. Some, but not all, fish are high in omega-3 essential oil - like salmon or sardines. Adding fish to your family’s diet is a healthy choice…if you make the right choice. There are many issues to consider when choosing which fish to consume, including:

Apple Pie Doughnuts

For some reason, I have been on a doughnut kick lately. I usually bake my doughnuts, but frying anything is always better. And it’s not bad if you do not do it often..or at least I like to tell myself.

I like doughnuts because they are a sweet treat that you can eat at any time. They are also relatively easy to make, especially if you have a doughnut cutter. Buying a doughnut cutter is worth it if you like to make homemade doughnuts.

Here is a look at my beignet from Café Du Monde….Doesn’t it look heavenly.

Cornbread Stuffing

I think most people love stuffing at Thanksgiving. Whether you call it stuffing or dressing, you cannot have turkey without it. When I was younger, I remember my mother stuffing the turkey with it.

But as the years went on, she moved away from that and started to cook it on the side, like most people have done. I definitely prefer it cooked in a separate dish because I like crispy edges and you do not have to worry if the stuffing has been cooked all the way through.

I also remember growing up on Stove Top stuffing and I thought there was nothing better. Then as I got older, my mom started making her stuffing from scratch with cornbread and you can definitely taste the difference. Fresh is always best! I prefer to use cornbread over regular bread because I like my stuffing to have a slight sweetness to it.
