A soup, chili, or stew is one of those satisfying comfort foods we look forward to on a chilly day. My grandchildren enjoy this dish as well, so I occasionally prepare it for them as well. Preparing beef stew on top of the stove, the traditional way could be time-consuming, but it only takes 15 minutes in a pressure cooker.
The Great Lent begins on Monday, as it always does for the Byzantine Rite Catholics.
The Great Lent for Roman Catholics does not start until Ash Wednesday, so they have two extra days to enjoy meat meals. They also celebrate a very traditional Fat Thursday, when they enjoy their delicious “Paczki”, doughnuts.
I personally like to prepare meatless meals on Wednesdays and Fridays for the duration of the Great Lent, as well as during the full Holy Week, which is the week just before Easter Sunday.
I use beets in soups, borscht, and salads.
Today I will share a recipe for a delicious red beet salad.
Even if you never were a big fan of red beets, you should give this one a try, and I am sure you will LOVE it.
I had this salad at my friend’s house, and could not believe that red beets were the main ingredient, since all the other flavors added a very unique taste, and texture to this salad.
This weekend was Paska Baking time for me and my daughter, as well as my 4 year old granddaughter, who not only loves to watch, she also was a very enthusiastic helper.
You heard about the Nuwave oven I recently purchased, so now I am testing different recipes to decide if this purchase is a keeper.
I already made a vegetable dish, a meat dish, and this time a traditional dessert.
