Zesty Carrots

My new recipe for today is ZESTY CARROTS.

These delicious vegetables can be served for dinner with one of my family's favorite entrees PAN SEARED SCALLOPS. While the carrots are roasting in the oven, the scallops are prepared on top of the stove. Add micro-waved "baked potatoes" and dinner will be ready quickly. If you have some time before dinner, prepare a dessert and add an extra surprise for your family.

Raisin Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A grilled cheese sandwich using cinnamon raisin bread is absolutely delicious! The sandwich remembered from childhood with a sweetened flavor. Keep a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread in your freezer. The needed slices of bread can be defrosted and used to make this quick tasty sandwich.

Creamy Cranberry Oatmeal

A bowl of hot Creamy Cranberry Oatmeal tastes delicious on a cold morning. Yes, I use the old fashioned oats when I cook. Using the recipe on the oat container, place the required amounts of “old fashioned oats”, milk (rather than water), “apple juice cranberries”, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a pot and let sit for 10 minutes before preparing on the stove. Then, I usually set the timer for 8 minutes and start cooking and stirring. By following this method I have learned that the oatmeal is creamy after it is cooked. In my refrigerator a 1 cup Ziploc container containing dried cranberries soaking in apple juice and another container of apple juice raisins will be found. This is a delicious breakfast!

Baked "Tempting Tenderloin"

Here is my latest recipe.... I always take advantage of Big Y's Buy 1- Get 1 promotion of pork tenderloin. Select about 1.3 lb pieces of the cryovac wrapped tenderloin with "good" expiration dates - that is dates that are two weeks into the future. One is baked today or tomorrow and the other is placed in the refrigerator to be used at least four days before the expiration date. Each tenderloin should feed a family of 4- with probably no leftovers. If there are any, the next day my husband enjoys any leftover pieces in a wrap combined with taco cheese.
