I checked and came up with this one that sounds yummy. It is done in the broiler.

Roasted Red peppers #24643
posted by Jim Mathers I 4/8/2002 see my other recipes

Sweet peppers that are sweet as candy. Serve with any type of fresh bread. Double recipe, you'll want to.....

2-4 servings
change recipe to:
US Metric

35 minutes
(15 min prep, 20 min cooking)

4 red peppers
1 clove garlic
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1. Quarter and clean pith from red peppers.
2. Spray skin side with olive oil mist.
3. Roast peppers under broiler 15-20 minutes, turning occassionaly until skins are black.
4. Put peppers in a paper bag until cool.
5. Peel skins, (do not wash peppers) and put in a bowl.
6. Add smashed garlic clove, oil and vinegar.
7. Salt& pepper to taste.
8. Cover and let marinate at room temperature for 2 hours.

If you don't like this one, or don't have a broiler, there are a lot more recipes there for roasted red peppers, just type that into the search box. I am sure with all they have to choose from, you will be able to find one that works for you.

Don't ya hate it when the pasta water or potato water boils over onto the stove, or in most cases into it?

I learned a tip from an elderly lady years ago and it hasn't failed yet. Before bringing the water to boil take a tbsp of margarine or butter on a spatula or butter knife and run it around the top 1/2 inch of the inside of the pan. I go around it a few times to make really sure! Just be sure not to overfill the pan with water.

Cel! That is a great tip! Thanks for sharing!

I was always told that if I didn't want my noodles to stick together to add a tablespoon or so of vegetable oil to the water and bring it to a boil, then add the noodles. So far it has worked for me!

I love chocolate raspberry cheesecake but the calories and fat are WAY too much for me. Can anyone find a lower fat version of the same one?

Ok. Nadine, I found a couple.... so I will just post the link here to the dessert thread. I will post the recipes on the dessert thread. It's only 1 page right now, so they should be near the bottom of that page.



Edited to add that one of the recipes I found is copyrighted... so I will post the link to it here. It is at the bottom of the page when you click on the link.

thank you for doing all that searching for me, I appreciate it Smile Even just a few calories of difference would make it better.
I'll have to let you know if they're good

I am looking for a recipe that someone has made and was successful. I am looking for Jewish Rye Bread. This was my granddads fave. bread which he and I would eat it all up. Has anyone made this before? If so, can you give me your secret recipe?

Cat, try these. Like I said, I have never made it myself, so I am not sure how good they are. I hope you can find what you are looking for.
