I don’t know about you but I always feel a little bit of a let down once the holidays are over. It’s the heart of winter, all of the leaves are gone from the trees, and it’s freezing outside. Even the house looks sadder with no lights or decorations to brighten it up. Goals and […]

I met a neighbor one day while out for a walk. She was walking her dog, I was pushing my son in his stroller. We made polite small talk and, towards the end of our conversation, she made a negative comment about an older, Indian woman who lives nearby. My neighbor and I are both […]

If you ask most parents they will tell you they want their children to grow up to be caring individuals who give back to others and their community. What you may not know is how early in life you can begin nurturing the skills like kindness, generosity, and compassion. As parents, we have to set […]
As a dentist, I’ve gotten used to people not wanting to spend time with me. The prospect of someone rooting around in your mouth, using a drill, or administering a shot is unpleasant—and I understand why many feel anxious. Instead of taking it personally, I use the opportunity to help my patients learn to cope […]
For those of you new to the Atlanta area, the AJC newspaper used to run a cool feature each week called the “5:30 Challenge.” The gist of it was to create a meal with 5 ingredients or less and have it ready in 30 minutes. Talk about an awesome reference for working families! (Moment of silence for the demise of the newspaper…for those of us old enough to remember it). In 2009, I turned in a recipe that had been passed on to my family from a college roommate of my mother’s. And, I was in print!! (Yes, I have a clipping, for those of us old enough to remember those, too 🙂 )
This is a hot meal, but honestly is delicious any time of year. The ingredients can be purchased and can sit in the pantry, the fridge and on the counter for several weeks before creating – super bonus for those struggling to plan ahead for meals (aka: moi). And finally, it covers ALL the bases needed for a meal. Yep, one pot and done.
Here are some tips:
- Try different flavors of canned tomatoes – all are great. If Mexican is not your family’s preference, get the Italian ones. Want it soupier? Add a 3rd can.
- I adore cooked cabbage, so I generally cook the entire head of cabbage (unless it is basketball sized).
- I do the chopping and mixing the night before, put it in the fridge and slapped it on the stove when it was time to cook. Wait to put the cabbage on top just before stove time.
- I have NOT put it in the Crockpot, yet…which might actually work. Maybe low for 5-6 hours? Let me know if you give it a try.
Hope you enjoy this “famous” recipe!
