My husband and I have two young daughters, but we often eat breakfast before they get up. This meal is one of our favorite "breakfasts for two". It's tasty and fun and looks great on the table.—Kathy Scott, Lingle, Wyoming
These attractive appetizers from Donna Folk of Berwick, Pennsylvania are easy to prepare but look like you fussed. A creamy filling and crunchy sesame seeds complement the fresh flavor of the asparagus.
I used this recipe as an occasion to get my kids involved in cooking. They had fun snapping ends off the beans and they delighted in whisking together the dressing ingredients. In addition I was surprised how much they liked the green beans with this hint of sweetness.
WHEN I'm in a hurry to prepare potatoes, I resort to this recipe that I created myself. The mix of seasonings is just right and makes a delicious, attractive side dish.
It's been a family favorite for a long time and fits with most any meal.
