*NOTE: When a recipe requires "raw" eggs as an ingredient, there is always a concern that potentially harmful bacteria may have invaded the egg which may cause illness in humans. Although the probability is low (1 in 20,000 eggs), the concern does exist; therefore, if you are concerned about using raw eggs, consider an egg substitute, such as pasteurized whole eggs, egg white substitutes, or meringue powder, to reduce the potential of bacterial contamination.

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 cups romaine lettuce - torn pieces
  • 4 cups iceberg lettuce - torn pieces
  • 1 can mandarin oranges - 11 oz. can
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Directions
  • Add the two tablespoons of sugar to a small saucepan and shake the pan to get the sugar to cover the bottom evenly.
  • Cook the sugar over low heat just until melted, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Do not stir the sugar as it cooks. Watch carefully because the sugar will burn quickly. When just about all the sugar has melted, lift the pan off the heat and allow the sugar to finish melting.
  • As soon as the sugar has melted pour the sliced almonds into the saucepan. Stir them quickly to coat with the melted sugar. The sugar will harden quickly.
  • Once the almonds are coated turn them out onto a piece of waxed paper and break the clumps of almonds into pieces. Be careful because the melted sugar is hot.
  • Break the two types of lettuce into bite size pieces and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the oranges, celery, and almonds to the lettuce and toss together.
  • Combine the oil, vinegar, two tablespoons of sugar, parsley, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Whisk until well mixed.
  • Just before you are ready to serve, pour half the dressing over the salad ingredients and toss them to mix together. Add about half of the remaining dressing and toss the salad again.
  • If you feel there is enough dressing on the salad at that point, do not add the remaining dressing. If not, add more dressing until the salad is coated as desired.
  • Pour the salad into a large serving bowl and serve immediately.

Multigrain Bread Recipe

Submitted by RecipeTips.com
Although it takes about 3 hours to produce home made bread (and much of this is rising time), it is not difficult--and the results are well worth the time spent. Makes one large or two small loaves.
Multigrain Bread Recipe
PREP: 2 hours
COOK: 45 minutes
READY IN: 3 hours
Container: baking sheet
Serving Description: makes 2 loaves
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon or 1 packet dry yeast
  • 1 cup white bread flour, more as needed
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (oatmeal)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Directions
  • Dissolve yeast in one cup of warm water. Let sit until proofed (foamy), about 10 minutes.
  • Add dry ingredients to the workbowl of food processor. Pulse a few times to blend.
  • Add honey and oil to proofed yeast. Pour into food processor and pulse with dry ingredients until dough makes a rough ball. Dough should be somewhat sticky. If it seems dry, add a tablespoon of water and pulse briefly.
  • Scrape dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead a few times, adding flour 1 tablespoon at a time if dough is too sticky to work with.
  • For the first rising: Put dough in greased bowl twice as big as dough ball (to accomodate risen dough), cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm draft-free place until about doubled in size, about 1 hour. (To make a suitable place, microwave  1 glass of water 2 minutes on high and put the dough in the microwave with the heated water.)
  • For the second rising: When dough has about doubled, deflate it by pushing with your fist, fold it over on itself a few times, and allow to rise again for about 1/2 hour.
  • To shape loaves: Return dough to work surface and flatten with hands or rolling pin to remove any air bubbles. For a large loaf, shape the dough into an oblong. To make small loaves, divide dough in half and shape each half into a round or oblong loaf. On a baking sheet, sprinkle areas of cornmeal somewhat larger than the loaves. Center the loaves on the cornmeal areas, cover loosely with damp cloth, and let rise until about double. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  • Using a very sharp knife, razor etc., carefully (so loaf doesn't deflate and collapse) slash loaf tops with parallel or criss-cross lines. (This allows expansion as the bread bakes. You can skip this step; the bread will still bake just fine, but there may be irregular bulges in the crust.)
  • Bake in preheated oven until loaves sound hollow when tapped on the bottom, about 40 minutes. Cool on a rack before slicing.

  • 1/2 cup green sweet peppers, diced
  • 4 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • On stovetop, add 1 tablespoon of oil to a 10 inch non-stick skillet to be warmed on medium heat setting.
  • Add frozen potato mixture to a non-stick skillet, using a spatula to level the potatoes evenly across the pan. Since the potato mixture does not firm up after cooking only one side, the non-stick skillet will assist with the ease of turning the pizza over when the first side is finished cooking. Cover pan and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown on bottom surface of potatoes. Remove cover and cook an additional 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Lightly coat flat baking sheet with oil or cooking spray.

  • Remove bits of potato from skillet and place it back onto burner, adding remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.
  • Slide potato pizza off baking sheet and into skillet, allowing uncooked surface to begin cooking.
  • Sprinkle sauteed vegetables over top of potato pizza and cover with cheese.
  • Cook second side in covered skillet for 5 minutes, until golden brown and then cook uncovered for 3 to 4 minutes. When finished cooking, tilt skillet and allow potato pizza to slide out of skillet onto serving plate. Cut into 4 pie-shaped pieces and serve warm.
  • Note: Meat can be added to this recipe. Simply use ground meat such as sausage or pieces of pepperoni. Add 2/3 cup of meat to mixture when adding other ingredients. Retain 3 tablespoons for use to be sprinkled over surface when the remaining cheese is added.
