I am a real fan of making soups/stews and then freezing them for later use. This is a prize-winning recipe from a recent Better Homes & Gardens magazine and I am going to make it next time I'm into one of my marathon cooking days.
This is a great and delicious way to use summer squash. Makes a nice presentation, especially if you top it with a small amount of chopped green onions (green part only), or a little sprinkling of sweet paprika. It is also a prep-ahead dish, if you wish, which makes it so convenient. It is so good -- hope you like it as much as our family does.
This is a casserole my grandmother would serve using her leftover ham from Easter. I also make it to use up leftover ham, or I buy a ham slice and make it anytime because so many people like it. Enjoy!
These are soft and chewy, just like the ones we get at the mall. It uses the boiling-before-baking method which is also typically used in making authentic New York bagels. I usually provide several toppings such as coarse salt, cinnamon and sugar, and mustard so everyone can choose their favorite topping.
There are a lot of different recipes for Hungarian Beef Goulash, but this is our version -- we've made it many times over the years. I'm glad I can store the recipe here now -- my tattered old recipe card has seen better days.
This recipe was developed by Jamika Pessoa, one of the finalists on "The Next Food Network Star" television show. She prepared this dish for the editor of Good Housekeeping, along with the panel of weekly judges, and her recipe won top honors in this particular challenge.
I saw this recipe and made it the next day -- it was a real treat for us because we all love the taste of lemons and it has a nice creamy frosting. They were so good they only lasted one day in our house!
This is a take on the beef and broccoli dish served in Chinese restaurants. It's very easy to make and tastes wonderful. After marinating the meat, it takes only a few minutes to get this dish on the table. (The preparation time does not include the 1 hour marinating.)
These are oh-so-good, and worth every calorie. I make this special treat for the kids one or two times a year, as dessert with a Mexican meal. (Well, okay, I also enjoy them as a "special treat" for myself.)
I found this recipe on the All Recipes site and knew right away that our family would love it. We all did and now it is one of the favorites in my "keeper" file. Granted, it is high in fat content and calories but is oh-so-good for the occasional splurge -- we usually have it with grilled chicken and a steamed vegetable.
This casserole is super-quick to put together, and after the chicken has been cooked at home or picked up roasted at the supermarket, it's simple enough that kids enjoy preparing it. It's also a favorite of theirs to eat (and they even get a full serving of vegetables which are mixed in with the other ingredients).
I found this recipe in one of Rachael Ray's cookbooks. It sounded so different from anything I'd ever made that I had to try it right away. We really enjoyed it, and it's very versatile as it can be made using shrimp, chicken or pork. I put a tiny dash of cayenne pepper in the pot since I wanted to add a little "hot and spicy" flavor to the dish.
