Traditionally I would post a food or drink recipe, however. Today I think it is important to focus on condiment. I mean you can make all the recipes in the world, but without that BAM! factor of a glaze or dressing it just wouldn’t be the same. Thank you Canyon Ranch!
“Thousand Island dressing is versatile in any number of ways: Use it as a dip for raw vegetables, as a salad dressing, or spread it on sandwiches or burgers. With our low-calorie version you can enjoy it often, but be careful with commercial varieties. Some of them pack in a whopping 120 calories for 2 tablespoons For a dairy-free rendition, omit the yogurt and double the amount of fat-free mayonnaise.”
Don’t let the name fool you, after this delicious entree you will feel like the biggest winner! Special thanks to spaindex and Biggest Loser Resort.
How does that name not sound appealing? Besides the name the best part is there is only 3 ingredients in it, and 2 of them are in the name of the recipe! There is an aha moment for you. Thank you spaindex.com for this gem!
Steer clear of purchased banana chips which are usually coated in sugar (for a fruit already sweet on its own!) and preservatives. Instead, try this simple recipe for Cinnamon Banana Chips. They are great way to satisfy sweet and crunchy cravings at the same time. Bananas pack an energy punch and sustain your blood sugar, and they are officially recognized by the FDA for being high in potassium and low in salt, which helps to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attack and stroke.
I must really have a sweet tooth, because it is all I have been thinking about lately. This easy to make recipe is surely one for a nice picnic or if you just have a sweet tooth like yours truly. Thank you Red Mountain Resort for creating this perfection!
I am beyond excited as I just booked our tickets to Rancho La Puerta for this summer. If you haven’t seen my segment on this property watch my PBS show Senior Moments (It’s the last segment) I have been there twice before and trust me…the food is amazing!! Here is a recipe for their yummy Shrimp Tacos.
By Kathryn B.
“Simple” doesn’t refer to the shrimps’ IQ, but to the quick and easy marinade that gives these tacos their distinctive south-of-the-border flavor. The perfect light meal for late, warm Spring days. “Mexican” oregano is available in most markets’ Hispanic foods section.
Makes about 12 tacos.
Peel, de-vein and butterfly shrimp. Place in ceramic or glass bowl with all other ingredients, mixed well. Cover, refrigerate and allow to marinate for an hour. Preheat grill and cook shrimp 1-2 minutes per side. Quickly warm tortillas on a non-oiled, flat stove-top cast-iron grill or pan (comal). This is an important step toward authenticity (in Mexico, tortillas are seldom if ever warmed in a microwave or wrapped in foil in the oven). Place shrimp in tortillas and top with any manner of favorite toppings, including shredded green cabbage, salsa, chopped white onion and cilantro, etc.
