Years ago, I discovered this wonderful cognac-based drink with a distinctive French origin. It has only two ingredients, and I have experimented with different brands until I discovered what combination I preferred the most--but do experiment on your own to find out what brands you prefer. It's more of an after-dinner drink to sip and enjoy as you slowly savor every last bit of it. And I really do hope you enjoy it!
This recipe is for play in ZWT- 8 for Mexico, courtesy of Mission Foods.
Personaly, I think that a banana or pineapple, thinly sliced would be wonderful, in between the tortillas or maybe served under the ice cream for an added treat.
Either way, they are bound to be good.
I went to our local flea market and bought a huge cantalope for $1 and a big bag of fresh, ripe peaches for $3, so what to do? I went home and made up this delicious smoothie! I hope you enjoy as much as I did! The amounts are approximate, so feel free to be creative. I sprinkled the peaches with the sugar and let sit for awhile in the fridge before blending. This makes 2 very large smoothies.

I prefer to use the dried beef from a local deli - ask to have it paper-thin sliced or chipped. I serve this over toasted wheat bread for my DH but it is also good served over a oven-baked russet potato. I found this recipe in the Fannie Farmer Cookbook.
This is a simple and versatile recipe. It lends well to any type of white fish, such as: perch, tilapia, whitefish, halibut, etc. It might even work well with salmon, but I haven't tried that yet. I love the crusty, delicious almond coating. If you can't find Panko breadcrumbs, you could try regular bread crumbs. I like to serve this alongside wild rice and a nice salad for a simple and pretty healthy meal.
Broccoli is loaded with lots of vitamins A and C and several minerals, it is one of the most healthful veggies. This is a spiced up version that is low in fat and not low on flavor. The recipe comes from Williams Sonoma Essentials of Healthful Cooking.
