Easy Roasted Turnips with Lemon | Honest & Tasty

I got a big harvest of turnips from my garden today, tho they are  a different variety than these.  They are a bit too radish-y for me to eat raw, so I am trying out this recipe to see if it makes them more palatable.


I’m confused. I don’t know why turnips aren’t popular. Maybe they look a little bit like work. Like you’re going to have to roll up your sleeves and reach for your handkerchief to wipe your brow sw…

Marcella Hazan’s Tomato Sauce Recipe – NYT Cooking

I made this recipe, but with some additions, even though the comments are split on whether its perfect as is or needs something else.  Personally, I did not want a sauce that was too light or too sweet.  So I took the base recipe but first sauteed about 3 cloves of garlic, minced, in the butter for just a couple minutes, then added the onions, then added the tomatoes.  I also added a can of Muir Glenn organic tomato paste to thicken it up and add even more tomato flavor.  I then took about a cup of fresh basil and parsely, stems and all and bundled them together as best I could and submerged this in the sauce.  I also added about a teaspoon of lemon juice which will keep the tomatoes a bright red and also aid in preserving it as I made enough to save some for later. I took the bundle of herbs out at the end and was left with a layered, rich, aromatic sauce on the acidic rather than sweet side.  Easy, relatively quick, delicious, and NO added sugar like in canned tomato sauces!!  This can also easily be made into tomato soup.

This is perhaps the most famous recipe created by Marcella Hazan, the cookbook author who changed how Americans cook Italian food It also may be her easiest Use your favorite canned tomatoes for this and don’t be scared off by the butter

Best Cabbage Burritos Recipe – How To Make Cabbage Burritos

I’ve thought about doing this before, but never have.  I would alter my recipe somewhat to mimic what I like at chipotle but still low carb.  Cilantro lime caulifower ‘rice’, black beans, fajita veggies, chicken chunks (or pulled, or steak, or ground beef, whatever.. the meat takes a backseat in my burritos and simply is there to boost my protein content), loads of lettuce, pico and medium salsa, sour cream, and light cheese.


Have your burrito and eat it too.
