Cracked Fingerling Potatoes
Very Good 4.8/5
(6 ratings)

What I like about this method of cooking potatoes, is that you get that roasted potato taste, from the stove. This is convenient, when I need the oven for something else-- plus, I think it's just plain fast!
I use a non-stick skillet with a tight fitting lid-- that way I don't need to use much olive oil.
Sometimes I use small Yukon Gold or red potatoes-- but I love fingerling potatoes that best.

Quinoa Meatloaf Muffins
Very Good 4.3/5
(28 ratings)

This is my favorite meatloaf recipe ever! The Quinoa adds extra protien and vitamins. To me the Raisins are an absolute must!

Very Good 4.6/5
(16 ratings)

You can lighten this recipe up by using non-fat parm but I love it this way and it still is a reasonable calorie count. The quinoa makes this pilaf extra nutritional. One of my family's favorite sides. Could also be a good main meal by adding cubed chicken breast or just leave vegetarian (use vegetable stock instead of chicken). Sometimes I add a different variety of veggies like green beans.
