These are the 100 recipes everyone needs!
The Mom 100 Cookbook is filled with delicious recipes, tips, including how to keep dishes simple for kids, and then turning up the volume on the same recipe for adults.
I loved her description of her One-Pot Arroz con Pollo - "Serve it right at the table, because as you lift the lid off the pan, the wonderful aromas billow out almost like those swirls of fragrance that you see in cartoons, the kind that you see transporting Tom and Jerry by the nostrils, gently floating them to the table".
We all can picture that!
In it you will find some great tips such as storing tomato paste - for the next time you need an annoyingly small amount for a recipe.
My recipe is from Chapter 16 - Best-Shot Vegetables. Recipes and tips for the best way to get your kids to try new veggies and what NOT to do. For this recipe she writes, "Add whatever veggies you have hanging around". No stress in the kitchen! - Gotta love her! Corn is at it's peak here in New Jersey! This side dish goes well with any of the Main Dishes featured today.
Sauteed Corn, Spinach, Bacon and Scallions
4 slices bacon, cut into 1-strips (optional)
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
1 shallot, minced
3 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (from about 4 ears corn)
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (optional)
Pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 to 3 scallions, both white and light green parts, sliced
4 cups baby spinach leaves
Cook the bacon, if using, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 1 teaspoon of the fat from the skillet.
Add the butter to the skillet and melt over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the corn and the red bell pepper and red pepper flakes, if using. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, until the corn is tender, about 5 minutes. Crumble the bacon and add it along with the scallions and the spinach. Stir until the spinach leaves have wilted and combined with the corn, about 1 minutes.
What the Kids Can Do: Kids can cut the bacon or bell pepper with an age-appropriate knife. With supervision they can stir together the mixture on the stove.
Cooking Tip: You can add sliced or diced zucchini , you can skip the spinach or only add it to some of the mixture. You can add halved cherry or grape tomatoes. You can do pretty much anything you like to keep changing up this vegetable medley.
