Make Olive Garden’s Delicious Pasta Fagioli at Home by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

You’ll love, love, love this rich and hearty soup! It tastes very similar to the pasta e fagioli at Olive Garden. It’s one of the lowest-fat items on the Olive Garden menu, with 2.5 of fat per serving. Our recipe actually contains more calories than theirs does because we’ve added more beans and veggies. The skinny on 1 cup of…

Good Luck Black-Eyed Pea Crockpot Chili

Good Luck Black-Eyed Pea Crockpot Chili by Salad Foodie

Ensuring good luck for the New Year means including black-eyed peas on your menu. This chili makes for a hearty crockpot dish with "attitude" for New Year's Eve. I based it on a recipe from Phyllis Good's Fix-it and Forget It Christmas Cookbook, and liked the results so much I won't limit making this just at New Year's. Add corn…

Moroccan Hareera (Harira)

Moroccan Hareera (Harira) by Amos Miller

I have read and respect the many recipes for this famous soup that have been posted on CookEatShare. However, I have not found a true recipe, as I experienced the dish, so I thought I should add the one I enjoyed several times a week, year 'round for nearly a decade. Commonly, and mistakenly, thought of as only a soup consumed to…

Mix your own combination of beans, purchase them packaged or from bulk bins, or just use one bean rather than a mix of them, such as black or pinto beans. Go vegetarian if you prefer, or use your…

Beans with Burnt Ends

Beans with Burnt Ends by myra byanka

Burnt ends are the blackened parts of a brisket that has been smoked. Some people like to cut the ends off, pour on bbq sauce, and cook them another two hours or so, then make sandwiches. I do that, but also add them to beans. Make these with drained pork and beans.

NUTELLA AND BANANA CREPES

NUTELLA AND BANANA CREPES by Linda Tay Esposito

Making a crepe is not as intimating as one would think. You can make these crepes for breakfast or as a snack. You can stuff the crepes with sweet or savory filling, or for the classic french crepe, some lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar. Remember not to overmix the batter and letting the batter rest and you will be assured of a…

Black Beans with Smoked Bacon (feijoada)

Black Beans with Smoked Bacon (feijoada) by Salad Foodie

More often than not I prepare black beans vegetarian. However I wanted to compare them to a recipe from "South American Cooking: A Step-by-Step Guide to Authentic Dishes Made Easy" (2010). Having made only minor recipe changes, I found the outcome quite tasty. But the earthy flavor of home cooked black beans are always good ~ bacon…
