This is the best chili recipe I have ever tried. I'm not sure where the recipe originated, but it is amazing! Sometimes, I don't bother adding all four cans of the kidney beans and it still turns out wonderful. Once anyone tastes this chili, they will be begging for the recipe!! Enjoy!
Adapted from Martin Yan's Chinese Cooking for Dummies. This is my favorite stir-fry sauce. It makes enough for two meals. Having extra on hand makes for a quick meal. My son will actually eat vegetables he can dip in the sauce! WARNING about the amount of soy sauce. When I used Kikkoman soy sauce, I found this sauce far too salty. I now use Angostura, which is much lower in salt. When adding soy sauce, start with less than half the amount and slowly add more to taste. Using vegetable broth makes this vegetarian. Yield: 1 3/4 cups (couldn't get that amount entered)
A wonderful casserole for turkey or chicken. An idea for a potluck or family event. This recipe is from my cousin, Catherine, and was her contribution to our family cookbook. Enjoy the crunchiness and the flavor!
This steak picado recipe is so good and so easy. Its great for nachos or you could have it with beans & rice with a couple of tortillas or it makes a crazy good burrito!! It also makes its own juice so you could probably even add some rice to it and make it a stew. (fyi, i wouldnt leave the broth out as one reviewer suggested, it makes the dish too tomato-ey, more like a chili...its still tasty but its not steak picado)
Also known as Wiener Schnitzel, these are light and delicious. You can also make this using chicken cutlets (breasts pounded thin). To make large batches of ready to cook veal cutlets, after step 2, place them in the freezer on the cooling rack. Once frozen, wrap cutlets individually in plastic wrap and place them all into ziplock bags and back in the freezer till needed (use within 4 months).
This recipe was give to my mom over 25 years ago. (When I was a very little girl, sometime in the early 80's.) My mom was at her dad's funeral, when food was still mostly homemade and not brought in by a catering company. No one touched it and she thought it looked interesting because of the green chilies, so she gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised. It was creamy, gooey, and a tiny bit spicy. It was the best comfort food she had all day. After finding the creator of the dish she went back for seconds to find that word had gotten around and it was gone.
This is AMAZING! Very popular, SIMPLE dish made in Egyptian households. Once you make it, it will become a favorite for sure. The key is in the onion's consistency once they cook down to the delicious thick sauce. Anyway enjoy, serve with rice or your favorite pasta. Enjoy!
Many chefs would argue that this should be called "Cottage Pie" since it calls for beef rather than lamb but I've never heard of it being made without meat! Personally, I think this is an excellent dish, full of flavour Although not included in the original list of ingredients, I tossed in a handful of frozen peas & corn before assembling - leftover veggies could also be used. This recipe was created by Toronto's own Lucy Waverman & published in the Autumn 2007 edition of Food & Drink magazine. Thank you Lucy!
This is one of the most forgiving recipes you will find. It's hard to go wrong here. Observant Jews cannot cook on the Sabbath, and yet it has always been tradition to serve a hot meal on Saturday after returning from Synagogue. This is the heart of Jewish cooking - no finesse, no mess, no fanciness. Just a hearty meal that is economical, delicious, and will keep you full for an entire day! Enjoy!
