This is a local dish. Central Cafe is a nice little restaurant and this recipe comes from Seasoned with Sun. A wonderful cookbook by the Junior Leage of El Paso. I made a few changes..of course! The original recipe calls for long grain rice and long green chiles, roasted and peeled. You can make it their way or mine, your choice.
I love brownies, and this recipe rated "fabulous" with me. They're firm, but gooey in the center (Yes, I baked them long enough!). No frosting is necessary. From "Creme de Colorado Cookbook", a Junior League of Denver cookbook.
From another of my favorite junior league cookbooks, "Creme de Colorado", a great addition to holiday meals, or alongside a thick steak. If you don't have time to bake the potatoes and cool overnight, then boil potatoes with skins left on and cool in fridge. For a slightly "powdery" texture, use Idaho potatoes, for a more creamy one, use Yukon Gold.
Our family has been making these little guys to add to holiday cookie baskets since 1987. They freeze well, so you can make them early. The recipe's from one of my favorite junior league cookbooks, "Creme de Colorado".
This is wonderful to have on hand during the winter months. Very easy to prepare and makes any waffle, pancake, or slice of french toast extra special. It's from "Creme de Colorado", one of my favorite junior league cookbooks.
Take my advice, make lots of this dip. The recipe may say that it is for 4 servings, but I have seen sophisticated friends turn barbaric over a bowl of this stuff. It's very sweet and goes great with tart apples.
Simple, delicious, sweet like my mother's recipe from long ago, a great spaghetti sauce that I make for company and other special occasions, like my son's birthday. It's from a junior league cookbook, "Creme de Colorado". One of my favorite things about cooking is dumping several ingredients in a pot and having it turn out delicious. This recipe is like that.
One of my favorite soups, it has a mellow flavor and it comes together quickly. Two tips: chill onions to lessen the flow of tears when slicing, and avoid slicing onions first thing in the morning! The recipe's from "Colorado Cache Cookbook", by the way, which is a junior league cookbook.
Excellent recipe! Good by itself, on rolls, or between slices of bread. I served this at both of my daughters' baptism parties when they were wee little ones. Very popular--one of my all-time favorite dishes. From one of my all-time favorite cookbooks, "Creme de Colorado", a junior league cookbook.
This came from Haunting Our Finest Cookbook, a Junior League cookbook from Franklin, Tennessee. I like this recipe because I'm always looking for different ways to fix chicken and the blend of these ingredients appealed to me. It's also super easy to make.
Save this one for those wonderful garden-fresh tomatoes of the summer! We have this often with our home grown tomatoes. The recipe is from my much used Junior League Cookbook of Phoenix, published in 1982. Cook time is for chilling, if desired.
A very old recipe which I might have found in a Junior League cookbook. Sweet with cinnamon and vanilla but not overpowering so you can still taste the pecans. They're very quick to make and nice to include in gift baskets. This is a simple candy recipe that's much more forgiving than most. Total cooking time is about 15 minutes.
My friend made this for a wedding shower and I liked it so much, I went out and bought the cookbook where she found it, Stop and Smell the Rosemary-Houston Junior League. The presentation is really attractive...it's not your typical cheeseball!
I am not usually one for cooked carrots, so I am not sure what possessed me to make these, but I am glad I did. The sauce is sweet and tangy, and the perfect accompaniment to the carrots. This recipe is courtesy of the Junior Leage of Little Rock. It serves 2 nicely, but you can easily double for more.
