This makes a great side dish with chicken or fish, the dried chili flakes are only optional I like to add in for a little heat you may omit if desired, use a good quality chicken broth for this, make certain to saute the orzo until just lightly browned it really improves the flavor of this dish! ;)
This takes no time to prepare, I have tryed this using different flavor soups, I find that cream of chicken and celery are the best, or use 2 cans cream of chicken, I also like to add the garlic powder and also a pinch of cayenne pepper to the soup mixture :)
Plan ahead this needs to be refrigerated for 6-8 hours before baking, I have left the green onions and cayenne pepper as optional you may add them in or omit, I like to add in for extra flavor, 1 pound cooked Italian sausages meat may be used in place of the ham --- this makes a wonderful weekend brunch!
Plan ahead the chicken needs to marinate for 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Although I have used 2 tablespoons Louisana hot sauce, you can add in more if desired, trust me the chicken will not be overly spicy!
This recipe will make two loaves of the *best* French bread you will ever have, I have been making this for years with perfect results every time, sometimes it is not the ingredients used but the method used that will make for perfect results, this is my way to a create the perfect French bread! --- you will need some cornmeal for the pan and an egg white for brushing on the top of the loaves, also about 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds --- make certain to have the two separated cups of water at the right temperature or your bread will not turn out properly, two .25-ounce packages of yeast will be fine for this recipe --- NOTE use 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon of active dry yeast OR 2 small packages/envelopes of active dry yeast
If you are looking for an everyday common key lime pie then this is not for you, the addition of beaten egg whites added to the filling is what makes this pie stand out from any other recipe! if you want a less fluffier pie then just use two egg whites instead of three. Prep time includes freezer time. This pie may also be served frozen just thaw slightly before slicing
This is a wonderful broccoli recipe which takes only minutes to prepare once your broccoli is steamed, and may be completely made and refrigerated for up to 48 hours in advance until ready to bake. Add in some cooked crumbled bacon also if desired --- the exact
measurements do not really matter with this recipe, you can adjust all ingredients to taste, no matter how much you use the casserole will still be delicious. You will love this!
A creamy dressing with the perfect blend of spices, adjust the amount of dill to suit taste I advise not to use more than 2 teaspoon fresh garlic or it will overpower the dressing, all other amounts may be adjusted to suit taste --- don't even think about serving this dressing until after it's chilled for at least 4 or more hours and the longer the better --- for a lower fat option use low-fat mayonnaise, sour cream and buttermilk --- for Ranch Peppercorn dressing add in 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper or to taste, and for Parmesan ranch dressing add in 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or to taste --- this makes a fantastic veggie dip!
If you love hummus, this recipe is worth trying! This takes only minutes to make but must be chilled for for a couple of hours before serving. Serve this with tortilla chips. Adjust all ingredients to taste.
To reduce the fat use low-fat evaporated milk, if you are not a garlic-lover then omit the garlic, I like to add it in, the equivelent amount of homemade chicken stock may be used in place of the canned, this recipe may easily be doubled :)
This is a huge oatmeal pan cookie that once set and cooled it becomes chewy, crispy caramel heaven! be prepared, you will not be able to stop eating this LOL! You can use raisins in place of the mini chocolate chips, if desired. Yield is only esitmated depending on the size of the pieces.
This is so easy to make and the way many of the higher end restaurants serve pork tenderloins, the mustard crust seals in the juices and tenderizes the meat. The tenderloins can go from moist to dry quickly, so to avoid this use a digital-read thermometer to register the tenderloins at 155 degrees. Your compnay will think they are dining in a fancy restaurant! If you are using a pork loin roast the cooking will need to be adjusted,
