I have only found my favorite potato salad in delicatessens in New York City and Long Island and in some Italian and Jewish delis elsewhere. After much searching, a friend on Long Island sent me this recipe which comes as close to perfection as any I've tried. The recipe may be cut down as the quantities are for a party.
Just like the title says, this is sweet and creamy and spicy with chipotle and poblano peppers! So enjoy! Adapted from Donna Nordon, owner/chef of Cafe Terra Cotta in Tucson, Arizona. This will feed a crowd, so feel free to cut recipe in half!
I make this every Christmas. It is tasty and colorful, and it looks so pretty on the dessert tray! Instead of using just raisins, I like to use a mixture of raisins, zante currants and white raisins. (sultanas.) It makes a terrific food gift, too!
I've been making this bread for years without measuring, and finally decided to write it down. My most requested bread from my bread-lovin' son. Makes the house smell divine!! You can easily increase the amounts of seasonings to your taste. (NOTE: Many people seem to be needing to add extra water, so I'm adding an adjustment to the recipe.)
I came up with this recipe to use left over stuffing from christmas. You can substitute breadcrumbs in the place of panko if you want. If the mixture does not bind well you can add 1 egg. Salt and pepper to taste.
This is one of my very favorite Italian pasta dishes. I serve it with crusty french bread for dipping in the sauce, with a side salad of baby mixed lettuces, spinach, and grape tomatoes. The recipe is from my late mother's collection. :) Very quick and easy to prepare, using canned chopped clams.

Beutiful round rustic loaves of amazing wheat bread with the destinct note of molasses. MMM The recipe started in my family somewhere before my grandmother. I "up-dated some and sometimes substitute molasses for honey which is great! Also the origional recipe called for hulled sunflour seeds baked in and on top. So easy to make your own beautiful homemade bread....this recipe makes the most intimidated cook look like a rock star!
My interest in serviette folding was born on a wet day at my Grandmother's house, I was a pre teen and helping her with the ironing and watched while she ironed serviettes into wonderful shapes and neatly stacked them for use. I asked her to show me how and she did. Once you know several folds and people see them, they often have at least one other that you haven't seen before, you gain knowledge of the new one and on it goes. Now that I have already posted all the napkin folds I know, I decided to look on the net for some new ones to learn. This one was called the Lotus and as far as I can see it's just a step further than Recipe #240998, but since it's listed as a napkin fold in it's own right and I have learned it as a new one and added it here.
Make your own bean soup mix instead of buying it at the store. It's a great gift for friends and neighbors for the holidays. Just measure out 4 cups of bean mix into a large jar and attach a recipe card. It is healthy and easy to make and filling. Can leave out the sausage to make it vegetarian and can even use ham instead of sausage. It's good for a chilly evening when family is just arriving for the holidays and you are too busy to make a huge sit down meal for everyone. You can keep it warm in the pot and friends and family can dish up whenever they want while so much is going on. My family always went back for seconds and thirds. Make some cornbread to go along with it.
