Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Dessert

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin Dessert

Cran-Raspberry Gelatin was one of the combinations that I felt was an absolute necessity during my 30 days of gelatin. I love the combination of cranberries and raspberries. It’s really one of my favorite flavors. That’s why Cran-Raspberry Gelatin is my first new gelatin recipe in this series. This is a simple recipe, which is probably why I chose it. It’s a variation on your […]

Baked Rigatoni

Amazingly Delicious Baked Rigatoni

Baked Rigatoni is the perfect recipe for a weeknight meal. Rigatoni entered my life this week because it was on sale for $0.79 per pound at my local grocery store. You see, I’m not loyal to a particular shape of pasta. I’m loyal to the cheapest price. Having purchased the rigatoni, I needed to find a new recipe, so this Amazingly Delicious Baked Rigatoni Recipe […]

Simple Pea Salad

Simple Pea Salad

Pea salad is my favorite way to eat peas.   The first time I tried pea salad was at a buffet.  My companion told me it was “delicious,” so I reluctantly tried it.  I’m not a big fan of peas.  We ate them often when I was a child, so they aren’t my favorite vegetable unless raw.  My opinion changed when I tried pea salad, and […]

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls (Air Fryer)

Italian Egg Rolls were something that I created one evening when we were trying to decide what to eat.  I don’t really like to turn on the oven during the summer months, and I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods.  It’s not for health reasons.  It’s because it seems so time consuming, and I didn’t feel like standing over the stove while the […]

Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostadas  are one of my favorite things, but being vegan for a month means I can’t have fish.  Fortunately, I had already come up with a recipe for cauliflower ceviche which was liked by everyone in the family.  Granted, Baker’s Man complained that I shouldn’t call it ceviche because there was no fish or shrimp in the recipe.  I solved that problem when I […]
