28 12 2017

We’ve got some GREAT recipes and ideas for Easy-to-Make-and-Take New Years Snacks in today’s post, and look forward to seeing you this week with some fabulous specials going on at Adrians Boutique!

ADRIAN'S BOUTIQUE | Your New Years Party Snack Stop!First things first… New Years Weekend is right around the corner, and whether you family likes to stay up and watch the Ball Drop in Times Square, or you’re more about the Rose Bowl Parade and Football game on New Year’s Day, we have some great snacks for you to serve! Click on our video below for all the highlights.  Recipes below!

1.  NEW to Adrian’s and just in time for New Years: Dot’s Homestyle Pretzels*. These are FABULOUS right out of the bag! Dot’s Pretzels are made in North Dakota and we have waited MONTHS for them to open our account. They simply cannot make enough Dot’s Pretzels to keep up with the demand! Crazy Good!!! (Available at Adrians)Screenshot 2017-12-27 14.06.38

2.  Slice some of our delicious (non-greasy) Younkin’s Summer Sausage* and serve with some smoked cheddar (we love the smoked cheddar cheese from Hometown Foods next door to Adrian’s) and crackers. Super easy! (Younkin’s available at Adrians)

3.  Adrian’s FAMOUS Jake & Amos Hot & Sweet Pepper Relish*. Just open the jar and pour over softened cream cheese that you’ve put on a plate. Serve with Ritz crackers. (Hot & Sweet Pepper Relish, Corn Salsa & Peach Salsa all available at Adrians).

4.  Make one of our delicious Cheeseballs by simply adding one of our Cheeseball Mixes to softened cream cheese. So easy! We rolled this one in dried cranberries to fancy it up just a bit, but they each come with their own topping right in the package! (Dozens available at Adrians).

5.  I made these “Tortellini Skewers” from a Pioneer Woman recipe to take to our Christmas gathering at my sister’s home in Olathe, Kansas. They are super easy to make and you can definitely make them ahead of time.  You do have to cook the tortellini, but that is not too difficult! Click HERE for Tortellini Skewer Recipe.

Quest for Healthier Living…

18 07 2013

My friend, Flo from Michigan is an inspiration to many people to make healthier choices in eating, exercising and time management in life… so I have been trying to make some changes in my own life…

Screen shot 2013-07-16 at 1.45.47 PM

Here is a recipe that was almost too pretty to eat! Beautiful, colorful Red Peppers stuffed with this strange little grain called Quinoa.  I had prepared quinoa a couple of times in the past for specific recipes, but hadn’t given much thought to it’s nutritional content.  Turns out, 2013 has brought some fame to this little known food.

quinoa in hand

The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has officially declared that the year 2013 be recognized as “The International Year of the Quinoa.” Proposed by the government of Bolivia and receiving strong support from many Central and South American countries, quinoa has now been singled out by the FAO as a food with “high nutritive value,” impressive biodiversity, and an important role to play in the achievement of food security worldwide.

Quinoa in box

We realize that quinoa remains unfamiliar to many people, especially in the practical sense of cooking and recipes. But we hope that situation will change, given the remarkable nature of this easily-prepared, nutrient-rich food. Preparing Quinoa is just like cooking rice, and can even be made in your rice cooker, although it is very easily prepared in about 15-20 minutes on your stovetop. Just follow the easy directions on the package.

Red Peppers

First, preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut peppers in half vertically and remove inner membrane and seeds.  Steam until soft but do not over cook. Remove and drain. Place in baking dish that has been sprayed with Pam. Set aside.

Quinoa cooked

Cook Quinoa as directed on the package.  Set aside.

Chopped Onion & Celery

Saute diced onions, celery, garlic in a large non stick skillet (or use a little olive oil if you like) for about 5 minutes.

Chopped Mushrooms

Add chopped mushrooms to the skillet and saute about 3-4 additional minutes or until onion, celery, garlic and mushrooms are all soft.

Tomatoes Petite Diced

Add drained tomatoes, salsa, prepared quinoa, then add chili powder, salt and pepper to taste.  Using an ice cream scoop, fill each red pepper half with mixture.  Put remaining onion mixture around the red pepper halves.  Pour reserved tomato juice all over the peppers and the filling. Top with a little pinch of dried parsley for some good color.

Screen shot 2013-07-16 at 1.45.47 PM

Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until hot.  Serve with a nice garden salad.  This is a very pretty, colorful summer dish!

This recipe is Gluten, Dairy & Meat Free. Very healthy for you, and is approved by my friend Flo! :-) Enjoy eating healthy this summer!

What are some of your ideas for eating healthier?  We would love for you to share your recipes with us!  Please leave a comment on this page, then email your healthy recipes to:  vicki@adriansboutique.com

My Sister’s “Exotic” Spinach Salad

13 07 2013

My sister, Nila from Olathe, Kansas is so gifted in the kitchen…Her beautiful home is welcoming to many guests, friends & family and she is always making something delicious!

Screen shot 2013-07-09 at 2.59.52 PM

I first tried this salad when Nila made this recipe for an event at church a long time ago, but have used it several times when I want to make something fresh & fruity…especially when it is so hot outside!

Nila's Exotic Spinach Salad

This recipe calls for papaya, mango, kiwi & strawberries…I don’t know about you, but I do not usually purchase papaya or mangos, so found the following video helpful on “How to cut and peel a papaya:

Here are some “Tips” for working with a Mango:

-It’s much easier to peel the mango if you cut it away from the pit, or stone, first. Mangos are very smooth and slippery and it would be much more dangerous to try and cut it after it has been peeled.

-The pit is oval and relatively flat. Cut about 1/2” on each side of the center of the fruit. If you run into the pit, just adjust accordingly and cut a little further out.

-The skin is edible but quite chewy. I usually can’t see wasting any bit of declious fruit though so I’ll sometimes eat them while I cut up the rest of the mangos.

Here is a Video to see how to cut up a Mango:

If you’re thinking that this is just too much trouble…I can assure you that it is WORTH IT…you will LOVE this delicious salad!

Nila’s Exotic Spinach Salad

8 c. spinach, rinsed, stemmed, and torn into pieces
1 papaya, peeled and cut into 1/2 in. pieces
1 mango, peeled and cut into 1/2 in. pieces
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 c. sliced strawberries
Combine spinach with papaya, mango, kiwi, and strawberries.

Sesame and Poppy Dressing

1/3 c. sugar and Splenda
2 T. sesame seeds
1 T. poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp. grated onion
1/4 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 1/4 c. cider vinegar

In a blender, combine sugar, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, onion, Worchestershire, paprika and oil.  Slowly add vinegar until dressing is moderately thick.  Toss with salad and serve.  *Note:  This salad is absolutely delicious!
