A fast and healthier way to serve Chimichangas than the traditional deep fried. These are very good, and you may dress them up to you own preference. I like to serve with green chile sauce sometimes instead of the picante sauce.
This will also work great with turkey; if you do not have chicken breasts, then use any leftover cooked chicken. If desired you can fill the crescents just with the filling mixture and omit the soup, just brush with butter before baking. They are wonderful just stuffed with the filling! A few members have experienced a soggy bottom, so you might want to consider just drizzling half (or even a little less) of the soup mixture on top and a little around the sides of the crescents, then save the rest of the soup mixture for another time (this will help prevent a soggy bottom). You may use the jumbo crescent rolls and stuff with more chicken mixture :)
This recipe appeared in the Chicago Tribune on 4/17/02. The dish has turned out to be extremely popular but be advised that it's very spicy when the recipe proportions are adhered to. Unless you want a super-hot dish, I recommend cutting back on the ground red pepper in the marinade. It may also be a good idea to remove the seeds and veins from the jalapeño chile in the sauce.
What can I say about these amazing pumpkin cookies... they are absolutely delicious! Let me put it this way. I baked these every year at Thanksgiving time for my job. My co-workers would come up to me two months in advance to make sure I was making them. One girl who resigned actually called me and asked what day I was bringing them in so that she could stop by - just for these cookies! Another co-worker said she didn't even like pumpkin, but she loved these. The consistency is more cake-like than cookie. The glaze on top of these cookies is fabulous! At least, I think so. I noticed a few of you who rated this recipe said it was too sweet. That is why I suggested it may be omitted, or if you wish, use your own icing. Lots of you have added nutmeg.. hey, make it all your own. That's what this is all about! : )
This is a recipe that I adopted from a sweet chef by the name of CBW. A real doll. "I always plan a crock pot meal for Sunday afternoon so that it's all ready after church, and I wanted something different than the chicken we usually end up with. This was a big hit!"
My most-requested dessert recipe. Moist brownie bottom topped with a thick peanut butter filling and topped off with a chocolate glaze. Please watch the brownies carefully and remove from the oven when toothpick comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it. If your toothpick comes out completely clean then they are overbaked and you will end up with a "cake-like" brownie. Glass pyrex baking pans have yielded the best results in my experience. Note: This recipe doubles beautifully!
This is one of the best recipes I've come up with for beef roast. The cheapest cuts come out tasting like you slaved over a stove all day long. You can add potatoes and carrots to the recipe if you like, or shred it and serve it as a French Dip sandwich with the au jus juice from the crock pot on the side. If you are watching your sodium, use the lite soy sauce and it will taste just as delicious.
A really special friend shared this recipe with me several years ago. It was his trick for dressing up those inexpensive noodles for his kids, and I think it is very good. This is great on its own as a quick meal, but can be an easy side for many dishes. We prefer the chicken or beef flavored noodles for this.
I've seen this recipe on several food blogs and was obsessed with them. Being a big fan of Snickerdoodle cookies, I knew the moment I saw these I had to give them a whirl. What impressed me most about this recipe was that it was super basic, no need to run out and buy anything special, just raid your fridge and pantry and bake away! These are super easy to make and will have your house smelling heavenly in 10 minutes. These bars go great with a cup of piping hot coffee! Now get obsessed with these bars and get to baking! My hats off to Julia of Dozen Flours who I adapted this from and tweaked to create this new favorite of my family and friends :) Now everyone asks me for the recipe! I have not seen a recipe on Zaar like this, so I am posting it here to share!
I found this recipe in the newspaper twenty years ago. I was impressed by the author's stories about life in the homefront during WWII so I decided to try this recipe. It was very good even without the allspice.
I have had this mac and cheese and it truly is awesomely rich and creamy! I had totally forgotten how good it was until I opened the June 2006 issue of Midwest Living and there it was. No more trips to Chicago to get it, here is the recipe!
Another treasure from my dietitian. This chicken is the Wednesday night meal at the hospital. It is really good. Now, go ahead and snirl up your nose and say, "ewww...hospital food" but I'm telling you, folks...my hospital has good food. Their roast beef Manhattan is KILLER, but Cathy won't give me the recipe for that, it's her Mom's. But this is always good, never dry, and I like it.
Great for a party or any old day of the week. These are sure to please any Star Wars fan. Two kinds of chocolate and the addition of cinnamon make them rather addictive. The recipe comes from "The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookie Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes"
Every time I hear the words "Cinnamon Chicken" I am reminded of the tv series Little House on the Prairie and the famous episode where Nellie asks Laura to help her cook Almanzo's favorite meal. Laura is jealous of Nellie and replaces the cinnamon with tons of black pepper. Anyway, here is a recipe I clipped from a magazine a long time ago that brings the image of what that dish might have tasted like(if Laura had not tampered with it lol). This was adapted from a magazine clipping.
