autumn is my favorite time of year to cook! this recipe can be prepared either spicy or sweet, your choice! two of my posted mexican-inspired seasoning mix recipes are offered as suggestions.
this recipe calls for the crust to be prebaked a bit before adding ingredients. feel free to change sausage to ham or bacon. this warms well in the microwave for those late risers.
this is a super easy, great tasting, make ahead side dish that looks like you spent a lot more time preparing than you actually do. plus, most everything is done in advance. the times do not reflect the standing time of the potatoes.
horseradish is one of my favorite condiments as well as cranberry sauce. this is sweet and hot. i enjoy it on a smoked turkey & swiss sandwich, but also good alongside baked ham or roast beef.
this will prove a blessing to everyone who takes it. it is soothing and relaxing, quieting to the nerves, has many good qualities, and is perfectly harmless. you can get the ingredients from any good health food store. you could up this to 1 cup each or l
a favorite from a local restaurant no longer in business. not an authentic mexican chile relleno, but a crispy, flaky version.
a little different, and oh so good. i include these when making up candy trays, as gifts, at christmas time.
wonderful comfort food from rozanne gold, a favorite cookbook author. this is a creamless creamed soup and it's delicious. it's made thick with potatoes and rich with butter. the color of this soup is stunning.
really an effective spice blend...i got it in one of maharishi ayurveda newsletters and thought of sharing here !hope this will help you melt your blues away.. :-))
this recipe was adapted by my mother and myself from meat chili. we fed it to my dad and only told him afterwards it wasn't meat - he couldn't tell the difference! this is a fast and filling meal and is even better, cold or warm, the next day! i serve lef
my husband made these up last week, very tasty, he liked them because they were easy.
a yummy thick chocolate mint brownie from york peppermint patties! get the sensation!
hey! i found this in a cookbook that recognizes different kinds of food from around the world. my brother made this in the 7th grade for 'food and consumer science' (facs, or home ec) as the meal made on his own. everyone loved it, and i came across it th
my children and their friends ask for my homemade popsicles morning, noon and night. i never turn them down; who am i to tell them that they are good for them! for variety i substitute different flavours of frozen juice - grape, fruit punch, tropical etc.
my friend just made this for dinner the other night. when i found out it how easy it is to make, i was shocked. trick the non-cooks in your life into thinking you slaved for them...
if spinach scares you, this is one recipe that contains spinach that you do not have to be afraid of! it is so delicious that even my picky kids like it. my mother-in-law makes this for get-togethers and she passed the recipe on to me. you can also use br
this is a hearty and filling casserole for those nights when a long time in the kitchen is just out of the question. very tasty and easy to make, my family requests it often. enjoy!
i love mirj's funky chicken with sesame noodles. i decided to use the noodles as my inspiration for this recipe. it's really similar but totally different. we liked it and i hope others will too! cook time is the time it takes to make the pasta. *update*
just the thing for a day when you're wanton something delicious, and a hamburger patty is just too restrictive. loosen up your inhibitions and pile some loose meat on a bun. wicked over hot, whipped potatoes as well.
this is a fun salad that uses the same ingredients you would in an italian sandwich. water chestnuts give it a nice crunch!!
ok, so this is not *really* italian, but it is still great with burgers! :)
my sister-in-law made these for us at a family get together. they are delicious!! a little messy to make but worth the effort!! have a helper and make an
this is a very tasty, moist, carrot cake. a nice sized cake for 2 or 3 people.
this is a moist, easy, colorful and delicious cornbread. roasting the corn adds a little nuttier flavor and the red bell pepper adds a nice color and flavor.
i have made this several times and it's dead easy. if you have overnight guests, what could be easier for breakfast? i've made it on special occasions, too, such as easter morning and christmas morning, etc. this recipe comes from the best of bridge serie
top with freshly sliced strawberries and whipped cream to create a classic summertime dessert. again, you can play around with different toppings a verytime you bake these cakes. wonderful !
i made this up the other night after i started to make mirjam's penne arrabiatta (#22941) but discovered i was missing a few ingredients. like the italian dish i meant to make, this one is also spicy and loaded with garlic. i'm sure it would be even more
stefan and emily used to make this stuff when her herb garden was overly productive. the last batch i made was with a blend of thyme, summer savoury, basil, oregano and a bay leaf.
ok - my heritage has been revealed. :) these are simply wonderful. a favorite among our community, they're sure to bring a smile to your face. enjoy!
made this as a side dish for mexican meatballs (#58471)because my oldest won't do rice. even she liked it!
we usually use with chicken. my neices ask for this by name
anytime munchies...another sweat free preparation for all of you !
watched a documentary about the
i don't know where i got this, but it works. the whipped cream will keep for a week in the fridge without deflating... great for party make-ahead.
this recipe allows you the fresh taste of sweet corn-on-the cob all year long. i've been making it for years and will today make it with olathe corn i picked up at the market for 10 ears for $1. it stacks neatly in your freezer and is ready in a jiffy.
this is the perfect pound cake recipe...plus so easy to prepare and only one bowl to wash! this is a firm cake, so if you are into cutting and shaping cakes, this works well. i have used it for christening and communion cakes, creating crosses, etc and us
this recipe was submitted by mrs. stuart padnos for a cookbook fund raiser put out by members of the junior welfare league, holland, michigan about 30 or so years ago. my mom brought the cookbook back to me as a souvenir of their trip. i've made these bro
this is a very versatile and widely enjoyed pasta dish with chicken. it has an asian influence with a very nice sesame flavor. i whipped it up one evening with a limited pantry and my little one named it. joint collaboration on this one, folks! oh yea, an
the name says it all...absolute must for all the mushroom lovers out there...smooth as silk gravy!!
the story behind this comes from a simple recipe i had found, then made changes to make our own. my husband loved it so much the first time i made it i literally had to say to him
cinnamonophiles will love this one. try it on french toast.
this is a very rich hot fudge cake that i got hooked on when i was expecting our daughter - just couldn't get enough of it and now she loves chocolate....hum... anyway, this is a easy recipe that i love warm with ice cream and my husband loves cold and pl
you just have to try it to believe it.
from the land of lakes cookbook via a friend who knows how i like to play. great as an appetizer spread, rolled in a tortilla, or in sandwiches. lots of possibilities for innovation here! cook time is chilling time.
tasty & easy are 2 words to describe this recipe. never any leftovers. i usually double this recipe and freeze in meals size amounts. this way i always have somthing to pull from the freezer on days i don't feel like cooking.
i made this up when i had an avocado that was getting too ripe and some leftover cilantro. it's good with chips or cut-up veggies, as a topping for mexican food or baked potatoes, etc. totally vegan and even my husband liked it.
