Honey Garlic Roasted Cauliflower

Ingredients

  • 1 lg. head cauliflower, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 6 Tbsp. honey
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce 
  • 6 Tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp. Clabber Girl Corn Starch

Directions

  1. Clean and cut the cauliflower into bite size pieces and place into a medium sized bowl. Add the olive oil, garlic powder and pepper. Mix together so the cauliflower pieces are evenly coated. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the cauliflower pieces out evenly. Roast in the oven at 400° F for 15 to 20 minutes or until cauliflower is cooked tender. Remove baking sheet from oven and allow the roasted cauliflower to cool for about 10 minutes. 
  3. Make the sauce while the cauliflower is roasting in the oven. Using a small sauce pan on the stove, add all the sauce ingredients except for the Clabber Girl Corn Starch and the water. Bring to a low boil and stir until well blended. 
  4. In a small bowl, combine the water and the Clabber Girl Corn Starch, and stir until the corn starch is completely dissolved in the water. Then add the mixture to the other sauce ingredients in the pot and stir in well. 
  5. Bring sauce to a boil again and then cook until the sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. Cool for a few minutes, it should still be warm, but not hot. The sauce will thicken more as it cools. 
  6. In a small mixing bowl, add the cooled roasted cauliflower and pour the warm sauce over. Toss the cauliflower so it is evenly coated with sauce and absorbed. Top with fresh green onions when serving. 

Beef and Noodle Casserole

Beef and Noodle Casserole from Scratch with Clabber Girl Corn Starch 2

This beef and noodle casserole is an easy comfort meal that is also perfect for feeding a crowd. It’s a delicious blend of ground beef in a flavorful creamy sauce, tossed with egg noodles and topped with a blend of Italian cheeses! For sure a meal the whole family will love.

I love a good casserole and I love having casseroles as part of our meal plan. It’s a simple recipe that is great to fit in our busy schedule, but yet still having a nice meal. Perfect for a busy weekend or school night.

The egg noodles can cook in one pot at the same time as browning the ground beef. Set them aside after they are done and begin to make the sauce mixture. The sauce mixture quickly goes together. Then the cooked beef and noodles go back into the sauce and it is poured into a baking dish and topped with the cheese blend. Then bake and serve!

I love that this recipe is one that you can do different variations to change it up a bit too. Add mushrooms or bell peppers to incorporate some vegetables.

Freezer meals are also great and so helpful in the busy season of life. Make up this casserole in the 9×13, cover with foil and place in the freezer for a later time.

Beef and Noodle Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. egg noodles
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground beef, I used 85% lean
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 sm. onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. Clabber Girl Corn Starch
  • 2 ½ C. beef broth
  • ¾ C. sour cream
  • 2 C. Italian blend cheese
  •  

Directions:

In a large saucepan, cook the egg noodles al dente, just a few minutes shorter than instructed on the package. Drain and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until its browned and cook through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Once the ground beef is cooked, remove it from the skillet, leaving the grease in the skillet. With 85% lean, there is just the right amount of grease left. Set aside the cooked beef.

Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pan to sauté in the grease for about 5 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the butter in and stir around in the onion/garlic mixture until melted. Add in the Clabber Girl Corn Starch, and using a fork, stir it in continuously for about 1 minute. Add in the beef broth and in until the mixture is well combined. Mix in the sour cream and 1 cup of the cheese and stir continuously until melted and well combined. Let simmer for 3 or 4 minutes and sauce will thicken. Add the cooked ground beef back into the skillet and stir together with the sauce mixture. Add the cooked egg noodles and stir in carefully until they are well coated.

Pour into a 9×13-inch baking dish and spread evenly in the dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of cheese over top of the casserole. Bake at 375° F. for 15 minutes until cheese is melted.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie – Dutch Style

rhubarb plant with large leaves
The leaves of a rhubarb plant always remind me of elephant ear hostas

Growing up, we had a patch of rhubarb in the backyard. It was on the back corner of my parent’s property, and for some reason, no one minded that we took the lion’s share of the crop each year. I distinctly remember my mother warning me that although we ate the stalks, the large ornamental leaves of the plant were poisonous. For anyone wondering what rhubarb is, I usually compare it to celery. It can be stringy and green. When cleaning it up, you don’t use the leaves or the wide bottom part of the stalk. I like to run a vegetable peeler around the outside of the rhubarb stalks to get rid of any hard, fibrous bits that won’t easily break down when cooked.

diced rhubarb stalks
Close up of diced rhubarb stalks with all those little strings

Although it appears and is prepared similarly to celery, rhubarb is definitely it’s own flavor. Rhubarb is mostly bitter when eaten raw, and it turns into a mix of sweet and sour when cooked. That’s exactly why people have been stuffing it into pies for so long – it gives sweet berries a little more depth of flavor. Another bonus is that rhubarb’s firm stalks don’t break down as easily in pie filling and can help give a pie a subtle bite.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie - Dutch Style
Our neighbor’s strawberry patch has done so well this year we’ve ordered at least 25 pounds so far!

In coming up with this recipe, I wanted to use the same Dutch style crust I’ve used in the past for my apple pies. I love how simple the recipe is and that the same ingredients are used for the top and bottom. I had to play around with the filling a bit as the strawberries I was using were very juicy and ripe. In the first batch of strawberry rhubarb pie filling I made, the result was more of a jelly than a pie filling. I lowered the amount of water, increased the amount of rhubarb and strawberries, and voila!

Dutch Style Crust with flour, oats, sugar, butter and a touch of cinnamon

Enjoy this Dutch Style Strawberry Rhubarb Pie at your next get together or just because on June 9 (the official Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Day in the United States)!

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 2 C. all-purpose flour
  • 1 C. packed brown sugar
  • ¾ C. unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ C. quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Filling:

  • ⅔ C. granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. Clabber Girl Corn Starch
  • ¼ C. water
  • 3 C. stemmed and sliced strawberries
  • 1 ¼ C. diced rhubarb
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F.

For the crust: Combine the ingredients using a pastry cutter; reserve 1 C. for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture into a greased 9-in. deep dish pie plate. Bake the bottom crust for 10 minutes while the filling cooks.

For the filling: Whisk sugar, corn starch and water in a saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in strawberries, rhubarb, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour into crust; top with reserved crumb mixture. Set in oven with a baking sheet underneath to catch any filling that bubbles out of the pie while baking. Bake at 350° F. for 40-45 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly and the crust browns on top.

A key lime pie is called that for a reason. It calls for key limes, but sometimes they can be harder to find. But key lime juice can be found in the juice isle at the grocery store and always works great for that key lime refreshing flavor!
