    This is one of (if not) the BEST banana cake I have ever tasted! I thought the oven temp of 275° sounded a little low, but this cake baked up (and rose) beautifully in my oven at this temp after pretty much exactly one hour. I do not know if the little "freezer trick" to this recipe is what ensured its moistness or not, but I did it, and it was exceptionally moist & delicious. Would be interesting to see if it still came out as great if this step was skipped. All I know is that I followed this recipe EXACTLY as stated (except that I had no buttermilk, so I subbed with a mix of lemon juice & milk) and I got exceptional results. So moist and yummy...a dense cake, similar in texture to a carrot cake... I personally would not call this frosted banana bread :o) Depending on the amount of frosting you like you can decide whether to half the recipe or not. I used the full recipe and had some leftover. I sprinkled on the chopped walnuts and threw this baby in the fridge and cut it the next day...TO DIE FOR! I really liked it slightly chilled, but great at room temp too! It got better each day it sat, I always make this cake at least the day before I need or want it. I was extremely pleased with this cake and will be making it over & over again!! So glad I came across this one!! (on another website). (* * Just to update the recipe, (based on some of the reviews), the baking time may vary based on individual ovens. It was RIGHT ON for my oven, but some others have stated it has taken 1 hour 10 minutes, 1 hour 20 minutes, and my sister just informed me that it took 1 hour 30 minutes in her oven!!!!!)

    This is a recipe I got off Recipe Goldmine. Delicious and easy rub for steaks! UPDATE: Due to the numerous comments, I've updated the salt measurement. Enjoy! :)

    Beef with Broccoli is a famous stir fry Chinese dish. Almost all restaurants serve this. I got this recipe from my Mom. Everyone in our family just loves her cooking and it tastes just like the one we buy from the Chinese restaurants. This is actually very quick to make after the marinating time.

    This is from the show Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger.

    Recipe #292029

    With all these mexican dishes I have posted, I figured I needed to add some drinks along with them, so here is the first of many.

    Recipe #65503

    From Kraftfoods(dot)com website. I made these for a party and I've had so many people request the recipe. Kraft calls for using finely chopped onions but I skipped that just to make it an even faster appetizer to get on the table.

    Recipe #278872

    Submitted for Zaar World Tour 2005. This is a Tex-Mex version of the salty dog. If you have access to a sweet Texas red grapefruit, like Ruby-Sweets or Rio Stars, then it's recommended you use it in this recipe. From a special edition of Saveur, The Best of Tex-Mex Cooking. I ordered this at a restaurant once. If you're in the mood, you can double the tequila (hehe).

    Recipe #134186

    I just love this dressing over fish. Use any kind of firm, large flaking, fish fillets you can get.

    Recipe #43095

    This is an easy crowd pleaser. I have been making it for years. This is my first attempt to write it down (I may come back and make some edits to the "dressing". I have always just kind of mixed things together. I have found that using some authentic ingredients does make it stand out. Fish Sauce and sriracha hot sauce are availabe in the Asian section of most supermarket today. White pepper is hit or miss. Spice stores and many ethnic grocery stores carry it. The French use it in white sauces so you get the pepper flavor, but you do not the specs. This is not an exacting recipe. If you want is spicier add more hot sauce. If not, use less. More tart add vinegar, etc. Add grilled chicken or cooked shrimp and make it a meal. Prep time is about 30 minutes. It does need to chill 2 hours before serving.

    Recipe #309257

    This recipe came from Flavors of Puglia by Nancy Harmon Jenkins. It is easy to make and delicious. I like to serve it with a tossed salad.

    From the Australian Women's Weekly New Asian cookbook - this sounds so good and reasonably easy to make. Times at this stage are estimated and does not include overnight refrigeration time.

    Recipe #344048

    My friend's mom owns a yakiniku resteraunt but she also cooks various other foods. This is her chahan recipe. She really uses chashaorou (chaashuu) but I don't know the word in English, but she said Bacon is okay too. If you like green peas, you can add 2 tbsps. (I don't like green peas, that's why I didn't add them into the ingredients list). Use how ever much olive oil, salt, and pepper you think you need.

    I love these sandwiches for a great change. I often make as a regular sandwich just for me. Works great with many types of bread, too. Adapted from 'The Holidays' by John Hadamuscin. Enjoy!!!

    Recipe #97559

    From the famous German chef, Tim Melzer. Beef sauteed with chiles, and served over a bed of romaine lettuce, topped with fresh basil, mint and coriander with a fresh lime vinaigrette drizzled all over it. YUM. You can throw this together in less than fifteen minutes! NOTE: This is spicy, if you don't like spicy, omit the chiles. Also, if you are averse to cilantro, just use basil, and mint.
