Cook Time with Remmi – May 2018

By Remmi Smith, Cook Nook Columnist


I hesitated to present my Yum Yums recipe because it reminds me of chili dishes and meatloaf… every cook thinks theirs is the best!  My version is jam packed with veggies.  I hope you enjoy this dish… but hey… I always encourage my Chef Club Fans to experiment with recipes and make it your own.  This is one of those great dishes that you can easily experiment with different ingredients.  The coleslaw recipe gives this meal a refreshing side dish with just a touch of natural sweetness with the apple and honey.  “Until I discovered cooking, I was never interesting in anything” One of my favorite quotes by one of my favorite people… Julia Childs.  Enjoy!
