Originally adapted from Fine Cooking, this is the dressing I use when I make Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Salad. A little tart, it stands up beautifully and adds a good amount of zip to the salad.
I wasn’t just going on and on about the Chickpea in previous post for the fun of it! :) I am absolutely enamoured by this main dish salad. It’s full of fantastic good for you ingredients: Spinach, Chickpeas, Olives and Oven Roasted Cauliflower and is set off beautifully by the home-made dressing.
The chickpea, sometimes called the Garbanzo bean has been around since Man began cultivating and is a main staple of many diets, yet the lowly chickpea has often been relegated to not much more than a hummus ingredient here in the States.
Hey guys, it’s me, the Frugal Hausfrau, with an easy crock pot recipe for a “barbecued” brisket or pork shoulder that, wait for it, uses convenience products! Yikes – has the earth ended? Maybe the lunar eclipse of the blood moon we had last week affected my mind! I think a lot of you who are reading this shared that same view!
My brother reminds me now and then that any dessert that isn’t chocolate is just a waste of calories. I think I may have very well proved him wrong with this cake, and proving my brother wrong is something that happens once a decade or so…if that! Sorry, bro, you know I love you!
Here in the States, we have a dirty little secret. You won’t often hear it spoken of, but It seems like all of America is in love with meatloaf – even vegetarians and vegans find ways to duplicate this homey dish, and I’m seeing meatloaf making its appearance on pub & restaurant menus.
I haven’t been posting much on this blog; I stopped in to see my Dad, Chuck and Step Mom, Pat, in early June and basically never left…so for this summer at least, I’ve traded in my city life in the Twin Cities for a small town in South Dakota. Quite a shocker but we’re making do and working things through and having a pretty good time as we do so.
