About Me

Phoenix, Arizona, United States
The most important thing in my life is my family. I love my dear husband and 4 wonderful children (ages 11 through 18). I am a stay-at-home mom (my dream job!). Some of my favorite things to do include cooking (and eating!), photography, reading, piano, flute, watching my favorite TV shows, swimming, traveling, and most recently...using the rip stick with my kids. I would love to attend culinary school someday & fit my love of photography in with that somehow. My dream vacation is Italy - something I was recently blessed to experience! I'd love to return and see more of that beautiful and DELICIOUS country! My days are usually full of running kids to and from activities - scouts, sports, music and church. Sometimes I have to remind myself to breathe, but I absolutely LOVE my crazy life and the people I am lucky enough to share it with!

GARLIC-SPIKED BROCCOLI RABE WITH DRIED MANGO (from Robin Miller Quick-Fix Meals)

SERVES 4

Broccoli rabe can be hard to find, so we just substitute broccoli.  The sweetness of the mango pairs perfectly with the broccoli. You can also substitute cranberries or raisins for the mango.
••
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups chopped broccoli rabe
1/2 cup diced dried mango or golden raisins
Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the broccoli rabe and mango and cook, stirring, until the broccoli rabe leaves wilt, about 3 minutes. Season
to taste with salt and pepper and serve.

Total Time: 9 minutes
PREP TIME: 5 MINUTES
ACTIVE COOKING TIME: 4 MINUTES

TIME SAVER tip:
You can make this dish in the microwave instead of in a skillet; combine all the ingredients in a microwave-safe dish, cover with plastiC and microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes, until the broccoli rabe is tender.
