Weekly Recipe Attempt:  Corn-Pimento Salad

I know what you're thinking, "how is that an amazing salad?"  That's what I thought at first.  I picked this recipe because I had all of those ingredients in my refrigerator.  (Don't ask me why I had pimentos in my fridge.  Half the things I have in there are from some hair brained recipe gone awry.)

This is one of those great salads where no dressing is necessary.  You just toss it all together and viola!  Instant culinary genius!  It has is all.  It has color, and uniquness.  It uses up stuff you don't really know what to do with after you make your main dish.  It tastes amazing.  A culinary moron couldn't screw this up.  And, perhaps best of all, it's healthy!

Once again, this recipe gets a 10.  This is foodtvandme's highest honor.  Try it.  I swear it's good.

    I have found that Miller's recipe for Chicken Piccata with Capers and Artichokes very therapeutic...especially when you use Rachael Ray's suggestion of flattening your boneless chicken breasts with a good, heavy frying pan.

    Am I going to have to buy a non-RR cookbook? I keep hearing good things about her recipes.

    I love Quick Fix meals. I think alot of people think kids won't eat those recipes, but I think if you don't act like it is gross and just serve it kids will love it. And Beets....hello their red. Kids love funny colored food, like sherbert both lime and orange. If you don't act like the food is supposed to taste nasty or apprehensive at all then they won't be either. I think that is exactly her point. She has two children and that is what she does with them. For me, the ideas that she comes up with help me to think about effeciency in other ways and instead of picking up McDonalds on the way home, I have been making better choices because she gives me these ideas. I love her show.
