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
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
this is a fun salad that uses the same ingredients you would in an italian sandwich. water chestnuts give it a nice crunch!!

this is a recipe that my mother got from some cooking contest in the '50s. it is delicious and filling on a cold night. we all loved it so much that we would call it the 25 billion dollar casserole! unfortunately, my family isn't big on dumplings, so i ca

this is another hit from my uncle's restaurant. it is a simply elegant dish, & although it takes time, it will be worth the praise you get!
this is an old family recipe that i think came from kraft tv recipe collections when i was a kid...a long time ago. we liked it growing up and my kids loved it when they were growing up and are now fixing it for their kids. we have changed it a little.
ready, set, cook! special edition contest entry. this is a leftover meal. seems like everyone always is looking for ways to use leftover potatoes. this recipe is untraditional and unique. great to get the kids involved to help shape the gnocchi.
this came out of a need to use some extra imitation crab that i had. i think it would be equally good with shrimp or real crab meat.
i modified this recipe from a tea smoked chicken recipe in one of my cookbooks. my husband dubbed it "evil" chicken because he couldn't stop eating it. i find it turns out best when you use a whole chicken. however you can substitute boneless breasts. i s
this is simple and tasty. top this corn chip and chili casserole with sour cream and salsa, you are in heaven!
i love figuring out what's in the packaged foods that i like. this should be easy enough for even the most novice cook.
i have no money, so i had to make something to eat out of what i had hanging around (not much). this is what i ended up with!! i had to eat it by itself, but i think it would be good with a juicy steak or some grilled marinated portabello mushrooms. the f
i had a recipe for a similar pie once from a bisquick cookbook but i lost it. i made this one up based on a few other impossible pie recipes that i had and i actually liked my version better than the original one that i had so i thought i would post it.
when i made this (my husband's favorite) the other night i was asked if i'd ever submitted this recipe to zaar. i had to answer, "what recipe?" so, after throwing this together for over 20 years, i'm writing down this "no-brainer" recipe for you to try,
nice dish made of left overs!
i saw this dish on a tv travel channel. it was served at an up scale diner on one of the hawian isles. i recall the name of the diner as being "mike's", but i don't remember the name of this dish!

risotto is the ultimate comfort food, it's like being hugged by your dinner. you can make do with a spoon and don't even need to bother with proper grown-up cutlery. a bowl of this can (almost) make everything better again when your down.
i was given this recipe years ago by a friend. i am not sure what country the dish "barinzila" comes from, but hope you enjoy it!
i love those chicken burrito bowls at the restaurant chipotle, and this version is just as good - to me and my family anyway! the recipe appears to be long, but it consists of mostly toppings. enjoy!
this is a favorite of my family and friends. one of my former roommates gave it the name "crack" lasagna because everyone who has had it is hooked on the stuff.

c'mon, admit it! at some time in your life, you have eaten "hamburger helper." i know that it was a staple in our house when i was a kid. the little talking glove is comforting in a twisted kind of way. :o) anyway, this recipe looks like hamburger helper,
i developed this recipe to use ground turkey, which i love. it lends itself very well to oamc & is kid-friendly. great for potlucks or to take to a family when mom is ill or new baby at home.
here is a lighter version of my much loved goulash recipe.
way back when....i use to get $15.00 a week to feed two adults, one toddler and a infant. i use to get one lbs of ground beef, cut it into quarters and make four meals. back then i called it, "dr. martins mix" in honor of the dr. to whom we owed so much m

this is my version of one of the best things my mom ever made--johnny marzetti! a little lasagna, a little spaghetti, a little personalization and voila! a yummy meatless dish for supper.
similar to sweet and sour chicken but uses mandarin oranges instead of pineapple. a very easy recipe to make.
i have no idea where this recipe originated, but as children we would request it for our birthday dinner and being 5 of us, we got to have it often!! while its cooking the aroma takes me right back to those times. you might want to make extra sauce it

this recipe comes from "the gumbo pages" and it's the best basic recipe i've come across. i tweaked it a bit to make it healthier by omitting the smoked meat and substituting liquid smoke and using the turkey sausage. i have put the traditional notes on

jalapeños and lime complement each other perfectly in this spicy mexican classic. this recipe is from vegcooking.com i'm not really big on the meat replacement products so sometimes i leave it out or substitute portabello mushrooms or something similiar
you can adapt this basic recipe to use ingredients in your fridge and pantry. try single flavours or combinations to make anything from vegetable broth to hearty lentil, chicken or thick creamy soup. as this soup is quick-cooking, use tender cuts of meat.
this easy to make soup is very close to the vegetable beef barley soup they serve at denny's.
a well seasoned shredded beef recipe that will keep em' commin'. slow cooked and the aroma in your house will drive em' nuts! its enough for a large dinner party. and the leftovers are even better the next day, if there's any left that is.
