This really is old fashioned! It comes from "The Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedia of Cooking and Homemaking" which was published in 1940. This wonderful book has been passed down through 4 generations of women in my family. Proof that some of the best stuff is the oldest and simplest.
This is a yummy and easy soup to throw together. Cheese compliments broccoli and potatoes so well. Ultimate comfort food when the weather starts to get colder. I love to serve it with homemade rolls or bread and a salad. I make it with skim milk to cut back on calories but feel free to substitute whole milk or half-and-half for a creamier soup. If I'm really short on time, I just throw in a can of diced, already cooked potatoes towards the end of the cooking time until they are heated through. If you want a thicker soup, just add desired amount of flour mixed until smooth with an equal amount of water. Mmmmmm....
I found this recipe in a copy of Vegetarian Times. Gallo Pinto translates as "painted rooster", and is a dish eaten by many Costa Ricans almost every day. The addition of ginger and Worcestershire adds a quite unique flavor to this dish.
I couldn't find a recipe that looked good and I didn't want to puree the soup, so I combined 3 recipes and came up with this one. It was delicious which I found hard to believe with so few ingredients. It also came out a nice golden colour.
This is from Alton Brown's Good Eats show and it's an easy and good mac n cheese recipe to have on hand. You won't be buying the boxed stuff again after eating this. (edited 8/15/2008 - This was initially posted with 3/4 tsp of dry mustard but after making this a few times I agree with the reviewer that said this amount is too much so I've reduced it to 1/2 tsp.)
This is a quick, 5 ingredient recipe. It comes from Light and Tasty. You should definitely be using the Italian-style diced tomatoes that come already seasoned with herbs for flavor. If you use plain diced tomatoes, just add some herbs to your liking when putting this recipe together.
Haluski is a pan fried dish that both of my grandmothers used to make of butter, onion, cabbage and noodles. It makes a delicious main or side dish, whatever you're in the mood for. I personally like to let my cabbage get a little brown, but adjust your cooktime as necessary to your preference. The serving sizes will depend on how you are serving it.
You are going to love this one! This soup is chocked full of flavor and you can have it on the table in about 40 minutes. Be good to yourself and add a touch of freshly grated Parmesan cheese to top it off. I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
I LOVE these spinach enchiladas. They are just like the ones served at one of my fave restaurants! If you like spinach, you will love these. If you don't like spinach- you will probably find that this recipe changes your mind. (Altered recipe after reviews regarding the saltiness and amount of sauce. I have not had that problem, but do not want anyone to have a bad result. Please do try this and enjoy it.)
This dish is the ultimate comfort food for me. And the sauce is a little on the lighter side because you may choose to use very little butter or heavy cream. I use skim milk, and find that I don't miss the cream at all. Feel free to experiment with different vegetables layered in this as well. Asparagus and/or artichoke hearts make nice substitutions. For the ravioli, try and find a "family size" package (24-28 oz), or you may use two smaller packages.
This sounds good for anybody looking for a quick and tasty meal. It is vegetarian too which is always great in my books. I originally found this recipe in the September 2008 copy of the BBC Good Food Magazine. The recipe states that the dish can be frozen for up to a month. It says to just defrost and bake in a medium oven for 20 - 30 minutes until piping hot.
This is an extremely flavourful curry. Vegetarians can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Kids really like this too (with less pepper). Serve with basmati as a side to a more elaborate dinner, or alone, for a simple meal.
