Introductory quinoa recipe. It's not exactly a side item, but it's not vegetarian either. And it's poultry solely by virtue of the chicken broth... so here it sits, in the side items section.

These are really good paired with potato salad! You can also add onions or green peppers if you'd like.

I got this recipe from recipezaar but made a few changes. To make it healthier, I substituted the shortening for applesauce, used wholewheat flour and added ground flax seed as well. I will give you the original with the applesauce included and you can add whatever you like!! YUMMY!

The meat does not need to be seared in skillet first to make this fall-apart tender, pulled BBQ beef for sandwiches. This recipe has so much flavor no one will notice the Worcestshire sauce & the salt were deleted to reduce sodium (you may also use low-sodium catsup and BBQ to reduce sodium further). Using molasses instead of brown sugar and Worcestshire gives a depth of flavor and authenticity, while reducing sugar & sodium. It is great to take to picnics, buffets, or tailgating. Freezes well.

This is a creamy stew beef and mushrooms to go over broad noodles. It's excellent as left overs.This is a double batch. Cook meat and mushrooms in slow cooker, make the noodles separately.
