Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes?

Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Garlic Ginger Green Beans

Garlic Ginger Green Beans by John Spottiswood

These are an excellent, healthy side dish to any grilled meat. I highly recommend them with the Chinese BBQ chicken recipe below, but honestly these would go well with just about anything. Unfortunately these were tapped out long before our chicken, so make more than you think you need. They are great the next day too!

There are times I've put the bulk of time preparing a middle east main dish and just need a quick side of vegetables. When cauliflower is on hand, I get the wok out and prepare this Greek flavored dish. I have tried my own mixtures of Greek seasonings (there's clone recipes out there) but when the commercial seasoning's handy, why not…

Glazed Carrots

Glazed Carrots by Nancy Miyasaki

I made these carrots to be a sweet, vegetable side to go with the Caribbean Pork we made tonight. I wanted something that would be sweet like plantains, and these did the job perfectly. I adapted this from a Cook's Illustrated recipe, and I think the technique is a good one. They'd be nice as a a side with any grilled meat.

Stir Fried Frozen Cauliflower

Stir Fried Frozen Cauliflower by Julia Ann Souders

Fresh cauliflower looked so good at the summer's Farmer's Market. I froze several bags, then this winter wondered how to fix it other than boiling to get soggy limp cauliflower. By thawing first, microwaving for about 1 minute and draining well, it was ready for a quick stir fry. Seasoned and enhanced with walnut pieces made a quick…
