Erin's Salad
Ok this is my favorite salad, i call it Erin's Salad (like what? Caesar can have one and i can't? Get real...)


Ok:
Tomato
Cucumber
Corn
Onion
Turkey
Feta Cheese

I don't put a dressing cause i prefer it that way, but if you want to, olive oil is the best.

I know it's not a recipe, but i don't know how to cook!!!

Cider brined pork chops (lean meat, cooked with very little fat, lot of flavor, and soooo delicious). It's also really easy, if you have time in the morning or the night before to set up the brine.

4 1/4 cups apple cider or juice
3 tablespoons coarse salt (kosher)
6 allspice berries
1 bay leaf
4 10-ounce boneless pork chops


Bring 4 cups cider, salt, allspice, and bay leaf to boil in large saucepan, stirring to dissolve salt. Cool completely. Place pork in glass baking dish or bowl. Pour brine over. Cover; refrigerate overnight.

When you're ready to cook, quickly rinse the chops and dry them with a paper towel, brush or spray with olive or grapeseed oil. Grill or broil to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium.

When I'm feeling really healthy I eat them with unsweetened applesause and lightly sauteed leeks or smashed red potatoes. But they're excellent with creamed leeks and Calvados apples

These sound wonderful! I love avocado with a little kosher salt and ground peppercorns. It's very filling and refreshing. I also really enjoy slicing cucumber and mint leaves and putting them in a pitcher of water. It's beyond sublime in the summer and makes me feel like I'm at the spa. Plus it's the added benefit of making me drink more water!

I find myself incorporating so many veggies into my dinners these days. Something I've been mixing up for myself...

1 tomato (I usually purge the seeds and liquid out)
1/4 onion
1 handful of mushrooms
2 segments of garlic
1 small red potato
1/4 cup of mozz. cheese
1 tblsp. of olive oil

I first dice my potato, THEN boil the pieces. Leave the skin on! There are lots of nutrients in there. I tehn sautee my vegetables in about a 1 tblsp of extra virgin organic olive oil. After the veggies are done, I throw in my potatos, cook for a bit, then top with cheese. I turn off the heat, cover with a plate, and eat in about five minutes. Yum.

I got this from a fashion writer friend. Since I'm not a cook but is a fan of microwave food but healthy she gave me a tip.

- Get an apple (red, yellow, green)
- wash it
- make a cross with knife. not too deep
- optional: drizzle cognac
- nuke it: press the button that says "baked potato"
- leave it till it's done
- be careful it's very hot
- sprinkle w/ cinnemon

and waa laa Baked Apple Ala Mode

Vegan Italian Eggplant Sandwiches

1 eggplant
1/2 cup soy milk
Egg replacer, equivalent to 1 egg
Salt to taste
1/2 cup flour
1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs(vegan)
4 sub rolls, sliced(vegan)
1/2-1 cup marinara sauce(vegan)
• Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Peel and cut the eggplant into 1/4-inch slices and set aside.
• Combine the soy milk and egg replacer and a pinch of salt (if desired) and mix well. Set up a breading station with one bowl for each: flour, egg replacer mixture, and bread crumbs. Dredge the eggplant in flour and shake off the excess. Submerge the eggplant in the egg replacer mixture, shake off the excess, then coat evenly with bread crumbs. Place the eggplant in a single layer on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the eggplant is crisp on the outside and tender inside.
• Place the eggplant slices on the sub rolls, top with marinara sauce, and serve immediate

my own thing:

Ingredients
- grate 1 large carrot
- grate 1 small beetroot
- chop 1/4 or 1/2 of a shallot
- 1 small garlic clove - pressed or chopped
- 1/4 or less of Chicken Stock cube
- 1-2 Tsp Balsamic Vinegar Glaze or less of good Balsamic Vinegar (optional)

......

1) Saute chopped shallot in 1-2 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2) Add Carrots, Beets, Garlic & Stock Piece - saute on 'high' heat for 1-2 minutes - stirring.
3) Add Balsamic glaze/Balsamic Vinegar - stir - remove from heat.
3) add 1-2tsp of Balsamic Glaze or less of Balsamic Vinegar.

= easy & healthy.

ALSO: what's yummy is to Saute some chopped Oyster Mushrooms in the Shallots - then add the Garlic then all the other stuff afterwards.

The soup I usually cook:
Can of chopped tomatoes (ones with chilli and herbs already in if you like it)
4 Carrots
2 Sticks of celery
Vegetable stock cube
Onion
Courgette
Red/yellow sweet pepper
1 sweet potato
mixed herbs, black pepper

Bung them all in a pan with water enough to cover the veg and cook for 30minutes. I sometimes add lentils for extra protein...and to save the fuss of a blender...just mash all the soup with a potato masher if you don't like it chunky

all these recipes sound great. especially microwaveable baked apple...

i like to make a tomato salad for a side but to make it a bit more fancy, I use a mix of different tomato varieties. Dress them very simply with balsamic vinegar and a bit of salt and a bit of hot pepper sauce. very nice to go along with spaghetti with pesto.
