So is aioli just garlic-flavored mayonnaise? Yes, but it’s more than that. Let’s check out the difference between mayonnaise and aioli.
Have you ever had a moon pie or a whoopie pie? I haven’t. But if presented with both in the future I’ll be able to make a really educated decision on which one I’d prefer to try.
Let’s explore the difference between moon pies and whoopie pies.
Looking for cherry tomatoes at the grocery store and finding grape instead? Wondering what the difference between the two is? Today we’re taking a look at these delectable little members of the tomato family as we find out the difference between cherry tomatoes and grape tomatoes.
Happy 2018! I have a special announcement. Spoiler alert: It’s in the title of this post.
Note: This is not a sponsored post. eMeals is not paying me for this. Thoughts are my own.
Another (more general) note: I try to respect my family’s privacy as I blog even though, obviously, they come up sometimes. But it’s really cumbersome to type “the husband” and “the baby” so going forward they are A and O, respectively. Most of you probably know their names but let’s just not make it more public than it needs to be. Thanks!
If we’re Facebook friends, you’ve probably noticed me posting pictures of awesome dinners through my 100 Happy Days posts. If you think I’m just super clever and am coming up with all of these creative dishes on my own, I’m not.
A couple of years ago A and I tried eMeals and to be honest, I wasn’t super impressed. We did the budget plan and it was very…limiting. But, that’s probably par for the course when you’re spending as little money as possible.
Then, a couple of months ago A suggested we give it another try, going with a different plan. And I’m super glad we did.
This excellent recipe adapted from AllRecipes perfectly compliments sausage, chicken, or nearly any main meat dish!
- 1/2 head green cabbage, chopped
- 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- pinch of paprika
- olive oil (not pictured)
This one was going around the internet for a minute – I tried it so you don’t have to. Except that you should.
- 1 pork tenderloin
- 1 apple*
- 1 cup baby carrots
- 1 cup baby potatoes
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- salt and pepper, to taste
*I used Cortland, because I didn’t want something super-sweet, but definitely didn’t want tart either. Cortland is on the sweeter side, but not too much so.
I halved the amount of meat from the original recipe – and apples, carrots, and potatoes – but kept the same amount of sauce. The sauce is really good and you will want more of it.
Do you consider white chocolate to be chocolate? Many do not.
As I researched this one, I found myself on the fence until the very end. But I have now landed on a particular side – come and join me.
Goulash! I like to make this on Sundays and use it for lunch during the week.
