I absolutely love deep fried catfish but I know it is not the healthiest option for me. I know nothing can actually replicate that dish without frying, but I have come up with a baked version that is close. I have tried this many different ways and have finally come up with a version that I think is fantastic. Instead of using white breadcrumbs I use a combination of both whole wheat breadcrumbs and ground cashews. I cook them up quickly and perfectly in my toaster oven.Use Your Toaster Oven To Perfectly Braise A Beef Brisket In Tomato Sauce
One of my favorite cuts of beef is the brisket, mostly because it is the most inexpensive boneless cut. It also has an incredible flavor. This is not the type of beef you cook quickly and serve, rather it needs a long, slow cooking process to properly tenderize the meat. A great way to do this is in the toaster oven; this way you won’t waste energy by running your full-sized oven all day long. I use a jarred tomato sauce for two reasons. First, it is a quick and easy way to flavor the roast without all the fat you find in a traditional gravy. Second, the acids in the tomatoes break down muscle fibers and tenderize the meat. That is why I get everything together the night before and leave the brisket marinating in the sauce overnight.
I went out recently and had one of the best meals I’ve had in a while. I took the wife to the theatre to see Billy Elliot (which was excellent) and went for dinner at Wild Honey restaurant in Mayfair. They do a pre-theatre menu which was very tasty and incredibly good value – you really can’t complain about a 3 course michelin star meal for 23 GBP. So, when I saw a deal on tuna at the local fish mongers (2 GBP for a piece big enough for 2 starter portions) I thought that I would try to take a leaf out of Wild Honey’s book and make something that tastes great without costing much at all – bring on the tuna tartare.Clay Baker Recipes – Fat-Free Chicken Dishes
Everybody knows that clay cooking pots already existed long before slow cookers came into existence. Since the use of clay pots avoid over-cooking while eliminating the need for added fats, baking chicken in a clay baker has been considered a good way to prepare a healthy, flavorful and fat-free chicken meal. When clay bakers are soaked in water before placing into the oven, it allows the pot to produce moisture as it cooks sealing in nutrients in the food and preventing it from escaping; and even if you cook chicken without skin, it still would come out moist, tender,…Emerging Foods: From Cereals Low In Sugar To Stevia Flavored Soda

Boil a cubed potato, then look into the pot of water afterwards. You will see that a lot of the potato leached into the water. The water will have a lot of potato aroma and flavor. That is why I don’t like to boil my potatoes for potato salad. I prefer to roast them and leave all that potato flavor inside the potato, where it belongs. The result is a delicious side dish with a lot more flavor than traditional boiled potato salad. I like to use my toaster oven for this because the close proximity of the heating elements leads to nicely browned potatoes. Plus I don’t waste energy by using my big oven for one dish.Tasty Gluten Free Easy to Prepare Bread
When you buy gluten free breads from the market you can never really be sure what has gone in the product; it is always better to prepare the bread at home and have it fresh. Here is a tasty and easy to prepare gluten free banana bread recipe that you can make in no time and store in the refrigerator for several days.Old Fashioned Sauerkraut Made Easily With The Help Of A Food Processor
You can make delicious old-fashioned sauerkraut using nothing but organic cabbage and sea salt. I find a simple dish consisting of two ingredients to be very refreshing in a world filled with foods that have long ingredient lists populated with unknown items dreamed up in a lab. This old-fashioned dish gets its unique flavor from a fermentation process. The way my grandmother taught me to make sauerkraut was time-consuming and required a bit of muscle. We would shred the cabbage by hand with a kitchen knife then pound it with a rubber mallet for 15 to 20 minutes. This process released the natural cabbage juice that keeps the cabbage moist and prevents it from rotting during the fermentation process. I still use my grandmother’s simple and basic old-fashioned sauerkraut recipe, but I get help from a very modern kitchen appliance: the food processor. The food processor not only shreds the cabbage, but swapping out the shredding disc for a multi-purpose blade allows me to “bruise” the cabbage without a mallet. This way is a lot easier.
Until a few years ago salmon was considered a fish in the luxury price bracket. For most people the only salmon they had ever tasted came in tins and even then was considered a treat.
