This recipe has the trinity in it that is what makes it creole cooking. After reading Derf's review, I set out to find what other Creole recipes used for spices. I found most used garlic and either chili powder, red pepper or Tabasco sauce. So you might want to add 2 cloves of garlic and one of the other pepper spices to put a kick into this recipe. Let me know which pepper and how much you use.
This is the cornbread recipe that's been used in my family for generations. Of course, before cornmeal mix was developed, they added the salt, baking powder and soda. It's the best cornbread I've ever had but maybe I'm partial.
Simple to make and perfect to serve for a get-together or enjoy for a weekend evening snack --- purchase the smaller sliced party pumpernickel loaves for this, you may prepare the puffs and place in the fridge on the baking sheet until ready to broil, this should yield about 30 puffs.
This recipe was originally posted by Zenith. She is no longer active at Recipezaar, but I was and am a huge fan of her recipes, many of which are healthy and low-fat. I've made a close version of this before and it is good. Here are Zenith's original comments: "A quick and easy vegetarian chili. I don't remember where I got this recipe, but I've made it several times, sometimes trying different kinds of beans."
I got this off a copycat site and have made it many times. It is great in summer as long as you are patient and make it beforehand so it has time to cool and chill. It's a really inexpensive way to make ice tea and works well as long as you use Orange Pekoe Tea bags. It's not half as nice with other flavoured tea bags.
I made this recipe to go with a Lobster Seafood home fest on new years day, I now have the detail of making this for our fish fry this summer to go with the fresh cod and haddock we will catch on the boat. They said it was the best they ever had and how easy it is.
I can't remember where I got this from. But I keep a can of cherries in the cupboard, a sachet of the pudding mix and knowing that the corner shop stocks cream, have always got a posh pud on hand for unexpected guests. Use deep glasses so that the layers can be seen. You want the light to shine through the cherries. The original recipe called for chocolate instant pudding, but my family prefers toffee flavour. Oh, and I always make twice as much because people always want seconds.
This is a great dish to use up leftover chicken, you can also make it using turkey, once you have all the veggies chopped this dish is a really simple dish to throw together --- you may omit the chicken and serve this just as a veggie side dish, top with dry chow mein noodles if desired :)
This recipe was one of many given to us in a pretty recipe box at my wedding shower. Easy and delicious, this comforting, aromatic soup is perfect for cold winter days. We like it with salad and quesadillas for a simple, delicious Mexican meal.
