Cheesy Couscous with Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Cheesy Couscous with roasted Brussel Sprouts - All that's Jas

Cheesy Couscous with Roasted Brussel Sprouts   This cheesy couscous with roasted Brussel sprouts dish is anything but bland. I admit: I often sweat the small stuff. My poor husband is usually at the receiving end. Like when I bake enough chicken for two meals and he loads his plate with the said chicken but leaves the side dishes almost untouched. I could go on without worrying about it but that’d be too easy. Instead, I nag about the abundance…

Must-Have Scalloped Potatoes

must have scalloped potatoes recipe - All that's Jas

If your scalloped potatoes don’t turn quite the way you want, this is a recipe you must have!   Using a mandoline slicer has proven to be painful if you get a bit distracted.

Making scalloped potatoes was probably a bad idea.   My mind was preoccupied.   Within one week…

Is plural for frittata still frittata or frittatas? I’m afraid my site would be searched for a different reason, ha! To get me to eat vegetables my mom would often hide them in the most unexpected ways. It wasn’t that I hated them but I wouldn’t even try them to begin with, and probably just thought I’d hate them. I mean duh, they’re vegetables…Gross! But once she tricked me into having a bite, I was hooked. So it was with…

how to make the best mashed potatoes from scratch - All that's Jas

How to make the best mashed potatoes from scratch For my first work-related potluck here in the States, I worked my fingers to the bone making a complex dish from my home country wanting to leave a good impression. Just as I was entering the break room my colleagues shouted in excitement. No, they weren’t happy to see me. The excitement was about another dish. Someone brought a bowl of mashed potatoes! What’s the big deal, I asked. They aren’t…

Delicious, tender, cheesy kohlrabi nests to boost your energy. Cheese Stuffed Kohlrabi Have you noticed a pattern in my recipe posts this year? Cheese. I’m thinking to re-brand to All that’s Cheese, but my cholesterol level begs to differ. Ava, my 4-yo granddaughter LOVES cheese! If I don’t have few (pre-sliced) varieties in my fridge when she comes over I’m in trouble. The other day she announced her favorite color was CHEESE. Atta girl! We got the biggest kick out…

Best Cauli Mac and Cheese - All that's Jas

Best homemade mac and cheese loaded with cauliflower will trick the pickiest eaters into eating their veggies.     Today I’m teaching you a little trick. My granddaughters come over for dinner every other week. Their only request? Mac and cheese.

Simple Egg Pie - All that's Jas

Layers of filo pastry soaked in egg mixture then baked to golden perfection make this simple egg pie. Simple Egg Pie This egg pie (jajara – /yaya-ra/) recipe has been handed down through generations.

Bacon Bread Dumplings

When I get tired of potatoes, rice, and pasta but still want carbs, I throw some bread into the rotation. As in these bacon bread dumplings, because everything is better with bacon. If you don’t belong to the masses of bacon lovers (ahem, daughter) you can leave it out. They are good even without the bacon. Originating from Austrian, German, and Czech cuisine, dumplings spread throughout the Europe with variations. They can be made of ground liver (yuck), semolina (to…
