I think you'll love how this Shrimp Bisque recipe incorporates making a super quick stock with your shrimp shells (and supplementing it with a little beef stock) so you can get that delicious, bold flavor without having to work too hard.
Are you ready to kick up your classic mashed potato dish a few notches? If so, you are going to love this cheesy mashed potato casserole which has a layer of warm toasted cheese on top—so yum! Plus, I've added a make ahead note below so this recipe can easily make an appearance on your holiday table this year.
here are a lot of these “foods to avoid” lists floating around the internet I so was inspired to make a list of my own.
Highly Processed Foods and Ingredients to Avoid:
This includes both synthetic dyes (like FD&C Red No. 40, Tartrazine, or Blue No. 1) and artificial sweeteners (like saccharin, aspartame, or sucralose). When you look at the history of food artificial ingredients haven’t been around all that long, and I don’t know about you, but I am not interested in being the guinea pig here. Plus the fact that artificial dyes require a warning label in many countries outside of the U.S. is enough of a deal breaker for me.
Instead: Look for dyes that come from natural sources (like paprika, saffron, or annatto) or forget the coloring all together (it's only for aesthetics). When it comes to sweeteners pick those that come from natural sources (like honey, maple syrup, and even sugar) over the artificial stuff, but always consume them in moderation (see #2).sugar packets
Okay, so I admit it. Frozen spinach is super convenient to use in recipes, but I can sometimes taste the difference between frozen and fresh (and I don't mean in a good way). So I was pleasantly surprised when I recently tried mixing it directly into the cheesy goodness of this Spinach Lasagna dish and seriously could not taste any frozen flavors AT ALL.
