These were my favorite things on the menu of a coffee shop near me that closed long ago. I've yearned for them over the years but have never seen them anywhere else. I finally decided to make them myself, and they came out YUMMY!!!!
My mom made this for me each time she came out to help after the birth of my children. She did the cooking and made this wonderful, simple and super tasty dish! I still make this a lot on cool nights. Very comforting and can be done super quickly. My kids love it too if I don't spice it up too much. I like to add a few shakes of crushed red peppers to the dish. We usually serve this over rice but I bet serving it over egg noodles would be great too!
I think that in the 50's and 60's every special casserole had "cooking sherry" and "buttered bread crumbs" and parsley. This is another one of my mother's recipe from the big plastic bag. I swear this recipe says it has a "lusty" flavor.
This Brazilian breakfast treat is usually served around Christmastime. Being soaked overnight, it makes for a festive holiday brunch item. Cooking the toast long enough for the outside to get crispy still leaves it with a custard-like interior that melts in the mouth. This recipe comes from Chow, by Aïda Mollenkamp. I haven't tried this recipe yet, but I may try it with less oil on a griddle, and although a topping is not mentioned in the recipe, I might use chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Pretty rich, but it is holiday fare after all. nt (not tried)
I got this out of a magazine called "Clean Eating" This is low in fat and sugar. Both DH and I found it to be outstanding. It may say fry but there is nothing fatty about it. It would also be great on the Weight Watchers program.
In college, my friend Angela and I went to visit her granny. She made this for us. It was the first time I'd ever experienced anything like it. It was delicious and her granny gladly gave me the recipe.
Not as complicated as it looks.This version only looks difficult because I tried to explain the technique carefully for first time makers of this dish. There is another recipe posted for this, but I feel it is too vague. This is the first meat dish that I learned to cook at age 12, so it's not that hard. You can do the exact same thing with cubes of beef, pork, lamb or oxtail. What's with all the optional ingredients you ask? Well traditionally all the ingredients listed are used but who isn't watching their salt and fat intake these days? If I am cooking this for guests, I use the optional ingredients but even then I use low salt versions of the sauces and check with my guests first for dietary restrictions. Either way it's great.
This recipe was inspired by my favourite pasta recipe that was posted by Beck D called Beef and Pasta Bake - the Best! Recipe #133624.
Vegetarians can omit the beef.
This is my low carb dream come true. Whenever I am craving a cheesy, ground beef pasta dish this is the one I turn to.
This is a version that my husband actually prefers to pasta (yes, I am dumbfounded too)....hope you enjoy!
My mate Barb makes this wonderful dish brilliantly, even after half a bottle of white wine:)
you can add tomato paste if you like, or even chopped capsicum or mushrooms.
This dish is fine with just wine and water, but much much better with well flavoured chicken stock. I like to use about 1/2 cup of stock that I get when I do chinese chicken wings.
You can use lite sour cream for this dish, but the sauce with most likely seperate, still tastes great though.
Make your own! I was surprised not to find this recipe on here - it's very easy and tastes better than store bought canned. I clipped this recipe from some newspaper. If you like really sweet then try sprinkling with sugar. DO NOT USE MARGARINE - THEY WILL BURN OR GET TOO DARK. Photos taken by me on 2/26/06.
Delicious! Yummy caramelized legs, kids love these! So quick and easy and no marinating required. Just prepare the sauce, pour over the chook and pop in the oven! I actually like this with wings better ;-)
VERY IMPORTANT TO LEAVE IT IN THE OVEN UNTIL IT HAS CARAMALISED TO AVOID DISAPPOINMENT.
Thank you to everyone for their positive reviews!
Try adding Sambal Oelek as Chef #27416 has suggested in his review. What a great idea ;-)
Although I'm posting this for the 2005 World Tour, this is for me a dish from childhood. My Cape Verdean mother made this often and served it with tuna fish cakes. I loved mine smothered in catsup. This makes a huge batch and we often served it reheated with more onions, linguica and fried eggs for breakfast the next day. Traditionally, it is made with kidney or lima beans but I remember Nana (my grandmother) making it with peas to accommodate my bean-hating aunt. Enjoy!
