During late winter, we’re always looking to ward off that chill with some homey, comfort food. Pepper steak enjoyed great popularity in the 70s. We think it’s time for another resurgence! This meal can be put together last minute with things you usually have in your pantry and fridge. When your family smells this cooking, a smile will appear on everyone’s faces.
Pepper Steak – a lovely pepper steak with a trio of colorful peppers and wonderful caramelized onions. Served over buttered jasmine rice, it’s a crowd pleaser every time! Different than most pepper steak recipes---this one’s tomato-based. Outstanding.
Honey-Glazed Carrots – roasted in the oven until they’re caramelized with a tangy, sweet glaze and a hint of ginger.
Winter Slaw – One salty dish, one sweet side, one tangy slaw with just a suggestion of heat and the presence of mango to mellow it out.
Carrot Cake – who doesn’t LOVE carrot cake? This one might even change some stubborn minds. Walnuts, plenty of carrots, browned butter cream cheese frosting all make this a winner.
